  • Tuesday’s Hot Celebrity Gossip

    Good morning VIPs! It’s the last week of July, which is kind of scary, but they do say that time flies when you’re having fun. We always try to have fun at the Live Like a VIP offices and we think that if you’re not having fun then it’s time to do something different.

    So with that mini-lecture out the way, let’s look at a few fun things coming up.

    Firstly, Amelle Berrabah from The Sugababes is one of the celebrities to take part in new BBC show Tumble. It’s like Strictly Come Dancing but with gymnastics instead of dancing. It will be on from 9 August.

    Made In Chelsea will be back on our TV screens next month. There’s a new twist. The next season will be set in New York. Totes amazing!

    Lily Allen has slimmed down and she revealed it’s not through anything fancy, she still eats potato chips. I guess it’s the classic tale of calories in vs calories out. You can eat up to 2000 calories a day if you’re a woman and crisps are only 150 cals, so they’re not that bad for you. That’s what we think anyway!

    article-2708058-2000AA0500000578-965_306x634

    Talking of crisps, Millie Mackintosh and her husband Professor Green attended the launch of Walkers Crisps new flavours on Monday night. They’ve been married nearly a year now and look just as loved up as ever. I wonder what their secret is?

    Finally, did you watch the documentary about Tulisa from NDubz about her coccaine deal trial? It documents the highs and lows of showbiz and it’s definitely worth a watch if you’d like to know what goes on behind the scenes of celebrity life. Catch it on BBC iplayer.

    Drink Like A VIP: Smirnoff And Celebs

    When you go to a bar and order a vodka do you ever get confused? It seems like every week there’s a new vodka launch with some unique twist or some spin about how many time it’s been distilled. But do you know what the celebs like Millie Mackintosh, Lilah Parsons and Bip Ling are drinking? It’s Smirnoff.

    BpY49z0IIAAvXsJ.jpg-large

    Smirnoff was the first vodka I ever drank and although you can get a lot of new flavours than when I was younger (including the tasty green apple flavour) it still remains a quality brand. What’s particularly great about it is Smirnoff’s emphasis on using it in cocktails. Some vodkas say they’re so pure that you could drink them neat. Well, I’m sure you could drink Smirnoff neat, but everything’s more delicious when it comes in cocktail form, right?

    Their cocktail recipes – which you can find on the Smirnoff website – not only look appetising but have been carefully designed so the ingredients complement each other perfectly. And as they celebrated their cocktail excellence with a party at trendy London bar, Tanner & Co, they had a special twist on cocktail mixology. Their cocktail mixologist Frankie made the cocktails as music producer and DJ Mr Hudson mixed the tunes. It’s all about feeling a vibe and being able to keep up that feeling with what you drink as well as what you’re listening to. There is no way you’d get the same feeling from a neat vodka.

    Dot Major from London Grammar could have been a bit hungover as he had his own gig and after-party the previous night. But if you get invited to a Smirnoff party, you can’t really turn it down can you?

    BpZL3dkCMAEvBHL

    So if you want to make these cocktails yourself, what do you need? Firstly, you need fresh fruit and maybe some jam or marmalade…

    smirnoff-fr

    Then you need a fridge freezer to keep the mixers cool (and ice!). Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but there is nothing worse than warm drinks.

    smironff-fridge

    And then you need the recipes which you will find on the Smirnoff website. Here’s a teaser of what you might find:

  • Check Out The Full Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Range

    Part of living like a VIP means having a good selection of hot outfits. They don’t have to be expensive, they just have to be bang on trend. And another part is supporting charity because when you have a good life it’s only fair to give something back. So we were really excited to hear about Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s latest campaign, where they’ve partnered with a selection of high street retailers to make clothes that not only look amazing but will ensure that a donation is made to the charity when you buy them.

    When this campaign first started years ago it was all about the t-shirt but now there are jeans, dresses, shorts and even trainers. Live Like a VIP’s Jabeen and I had a chance to look at the range at a party in London’s St Pancras Renaissance hotel. Later on in this blog post, I pick my three top fave outfits, which I hope you love as much as I do, but here is a quick picture to show how broad the range is. There’s something for everyone so no matter what your style is you can Wear Your Support!

    IMG_6521

    Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has lots of celebrity ambassadors so if you buy any of these clothes you can rest assured you’re following in the footsteps of the most stylish stars. Names include the gorgeous Emeli Sande, Jessica Ennis Hill, Laura Bailey, and Lilah Parsons. Rosie Fortescue is an ambassador and she was at the party with former Made in Chelsea co-star Millie Mackintosh. I also saw hot British model Suki Waterhouse, who was loving oohing and aahing over the designs.

    There was a chance to get a blowdry or other hair dos, a manicure station and lots of make-up artists ready to touch up party goers faces. But the music was the best bit – it’s always nice to have a soundtrack at a party, isn’t it?

    IMG_6510

    So let’s get into the clothes! Here are my personal top 3 items. They can all be purchased through the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer online shop

    Skinny Jeans – £29.90 (including £8.80 donation)

    skinnyjeans

    Shorts and Top Set.

    Top £30 (inc £9 donation)

    Shorts £32 (including £9.60 donation)

    Pink Vest Top – £20 (inc a £6 donation)

    Check out the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer website to browse the whole range. Let us know if you buy something – we’re on Twitter @livelikeavip

    PS The St Pancras Hotel is an amazing venue for a party. It was where the Spice Girls recorded their music video for Wannabe so after looking at the clothes Jabeen and I had a Spice Girls moment. I am Scary and she is Posh, obvs!

    There is also a terrace where you can sit outside and watch the Kings Cross traffic pass by as you feel utterly calm looking out over it all. Seeing the station in the distance and the red bricks conjured up an image in my mind of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. Except I had prosecco to make it even more enjoyable.

  • Thursday Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! If you’re anything like me you’re probably having  a busy week. However, we all know it’s important to take some time out and chill. Why not read all the juicy showbiz gossip whilst you relax?

    Michelle Heaton showed off her post pregnancy body just two weeks after giving birth. She was spotted in a mint green jumpsuit whilst she accepted her Disney Celebrity Mum of the Year award.

    Michelle Heaton

    Millie Mackintosh showed the rest of us what she’s made out of by posting a video of herself working hard at the gym. She has mentioned that she would like to get stronger and if she keeps training like this she most definitely will!

    Millie Mackintosh

    In other exercise news, Sarah Harding has revealed that her Beyonce style workouts are whipping her in shape for her first solo ‘rock chic’ performance. Apparently turning up the volume really loud and exercising is the best way to go.

    Sarah Harding

    Naomi Cambell is doing what she does best- gracing a magazine cover! At 43, she looks incredible on the cover of Shape Magazine and revealed her struggle to quit smoking. It definitely paid off.

    Naomi Campbell

    Lamar Odom spoke to InTouch Magazine where he revealed he’s not ready to give up on his marriage and wants to make it work with Khloe again. He is also focussing on getting better. Let’s just hope he doesn’t hurt Khloe again!

  • Friday Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hi VIPs! You know what I’m going to say- TGIF! Start off your weekend right with some showbiz goss.

    We all know that Lauren Goodger loves taking a selfie or two and sharing it with her fans via social media. However Lauren uploaded a picture of herself in a yellow sports bra and trackpants giving us a bootylicious eyeful and then promptly took it down! Clearly she had second thoughts about posting this particular selfie.

    Lauren Goodger

    Claire Richards is definitely the queen of yo-yo dieting! She was spotted with her daughter looking much slimmer and healthier than a couple months before. However, Claire was seen holding a box of treats from the bakery. Will she be eating them or are they for her children? Hopefully Claire doesn’t steer in the wrong direction again.

    Claire Richards

    After quitting Made in Chelsea last season Millie Mackintosh has found success as a model for Select Model Management. She looked incredible posing in some black and white shots for her portfolio, with one of them being topless. Her intense exercise regime has obviously helped her look absolutely amazing!

    Millie Mackintosh

    Kate Winslet and Scarlett Johansson went make-up free for Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue- And they look great! The photos were taken by award winning photographer Chuck Close and the two women look confident in their natural beauty. Maybe it’s time we ditch our make-up routine? Maybe not.

    Scarlett Johanssen

    Oh Charlie Sheen is at it again. Since Ashton Kutcher replaced him on Two And A Half Men back in 2011, he’s been having various digs at his on-screen performance. Ashton finally had enough and told him to stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live, with Charlie promptly tweeting a message of apology. Lesson learnt Charlie!

    Ashton Kutcher

    Miley Cyrus is topless again. I repeat. Miley Cyrus is topless again. This time it’s for the March issue of Vogue Deutsch. In the photos she looks like the spitting image of Madonna and shared 3 different cover images with her fans. She’s on a roll!

    Miley Cyrus

    Sandra Bullock and Jay Leno shared a special moment on the last day of his talk show. Sandra fought back tears as she gushed about how supportive Jay had been throughout her career. In return he kissed her hand and told her she was ‘special’- which she is!

    Sandra Bullock

    Channing Tatum has been saying bad things about his body. We don’t quite agree. Channing explained on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that since becoming a father he’s turned ‘fappy’- fat and happy. The Magic Mike star has let his fitness regime slide and insist he’s become round and soft. Still looking good Channing.

    Millie Mackintosh isn’t afraid to admit that she works out at least six times a week! In particular Millie is addicted to Xbox Fitness and tries to wear her gym gear on off days to keep her mindset healthy! She is also looking to incorporate weekly yoga into her schedule. Better than sitting on the couch!

    Millie Mackintosh

    Sam Faiers had to be rushed out of the Celebrity Big Brother house after suffering an allergic reaction which caused her face to swell up! She was given a plaster to put on her face and was monitored by medical staff until her symptoms stabilised and was allowed to return to the house. Health definitely comes first!

    Sam Faiers

    The Saturdays singer Una Foden’s sexy husband Ben Foden has signed a modelling contract with Next Model Management! The rugby player will also have the opportunity to model alongside his wife as she signed a contract with the same agency late last year. Great looking couple!

    Ben Foden

    Ex-TOWIE star Lauren Goodger had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction as she stepped out shopping. Her black t-shirt just so happened to be completely see-through in the light revealing a whole lot more than what photographers bargained for. Genuine mistake or publicity stunt? You decide!

    Lauren Goodger

    Joan Rivers has decided to be unpleasant in her humour again as she attacked Kim Kardashian’s precious little daughter North West! The famous comedienne branded the 7 month old as ‘ugly’ and in good need of a waxing! Erm we disagree!

    Joan Rivers

    In other Kim Kardashian news, Kim and Kanye headed out of Paris as the Palace of Versailles tweeted they were not going to be holding their wedding at the venue! Apparently the venue officials have denied their wedding from the get go leaving Kimye disappointed!

    Kim Kardashian

    Katy Perry hasn’t left much to the imagination in her interview with GQ Magazine. She mentioned that growing up she prayed for big boobs and lost her virginity at 16! However, Katy claims she’s a good girl at heart!

    Katy Perry

    Miley Cyrus has shocked once again! She posted a bizarre picture of herself promoting her special MTV Unplugged event at the end of the month. The picture features herself with a blonde wig, false teeth and some strategically placed nipple pasties. Not quite sure what to make of the look Miley!
