Friday Hoopla, Gino’s & Da Ladies

Yay! Espresso Martini’s for everyone! It is fucking Friday! Technically, this week the Friday ‘Hoopla’ means nothing to me as I’m working ALL Saturday,  (YIPEEEE.) Yet I’ll let you all enjoy your *can can.* I’m one to start the party, not poop at it.

I’m feeling positive and refreshed. I’m smashing my diet, thanks to ‘Fairytale’ and Hustle Barbie. YOU’RE ALL going to jelaous of me in a bikini. I’m not saying that I think i’m fat. I’m saying that I have wibbly bits that might need a *jiggle* off…I’m quite a vain person, so it has nothing to do with my health and everything to do with looking good! Lol. And yeah, you may think that is shit, but it’s not. I did my entire 20’s in Hollywood and my entire career at that point was making money from ‘looking good.’ It’s healthy to shake off ya wibbly bits. Especially when ‘Firmonnell’ says I an have a rum.

‘Honestly, it’s better for you than wine.’

I’ve had to change my mental state of thought, because ‘Hustle’ and ‘Fairytale’ are actually shit at making me just eat leaves. (They’re already skinny, so it doesn’t matter to them.) They’re all..

‘Lets have a bun’ here…’I really need a biscuit’ there…’Chrissie banana bread is just like brown toast with banana on it. It’s good for you.’

‘IT’S FUCKING CAKE!’

So ‘Firmonnell’ and I have made the executive decision TO LET THEM eat cake.

‘Eat it my pretties…’

That way, when we’re supermodel skinny and flouncing around like the happy chick on the Bodyform beach commercials, they’ll be fat…and that will make me happy. 🙂 I’ll look like a Michelle Keegan in a bikini and they’ll look like Stavros Flatley. (Everyone made fun of my Ellen Degeneres Girl Crush yesterday. I don’t get why people don’t see the attraction? If i could marry any woman…it would be HER!)

‘Well yeah, she is funny Chrissie…’

‘NO! She’s hot! It goes waaaaaaaaaay beyond funny. Lol.’

I’ve confused myself really because i’m definitely very straight but GOD, I fancy Ellen. Lol. I’m not even kidding. I adore her. AND she follows me on Twitter!

I’m feeling a bit rough today. I did after work cocktails simply because it was THURSDAY. Not sure why I thought that was such a good idea? However, everyone must have jumped on the bandwagon because the place was RAMMED. In Leeds…everyone votes for cocktails through the week. Which reminds me…I forgot to actually Vote for the Prime Minister. Lol. Fuck it. I voted ‘Pornstars.’

I have lots going on but i’m happy. It feels chilled and in control. This week is a busy one…and during my spits of time off (which is only Sunday) I have a morning coffee with ‘Inadequate Chris’ (he’s a Snapchat star and does these really funny videos.) He messaged me yesterday to see if we could come up with a collabo. We’ll be doing La Bottega Milanese in Leeds, at around 10.30am? Can’t remember what time I said?

THEN I meet the girls, my besties, my dolls (we’ve had our private text messages ‘LIVE’ for the world to read all week and it’s been so fun. We’re almost at the end of our 10 day ‘Chrissie in the City’ stint…Yet we’ve done and are doing so well, that it’s going to get picked up, revamped and moved forward.’ App show here we come. The future is all about Social Media and we’ve accidentally got ourselves a future HIT..if we do it right.)

Anyway, what was I saying? Chris at Bottega? Yes, on Sunday at 1pm, all us girls are meeting up and kicking back to enjoy a prosecco dripped, cocktailed lunch at one of my favoruite Leeds haunts Gino’s. It is owned by the very famous Gino ‘D’acampo. I did his live show. I chatted to him about life. I’m goign to the opening of the Harrogate restaurant. I wrote the infamous blog on his joint (the first time that I visited.) It swirled through the head honchos and D’acampo offices. I now have a Black card…and the girls and I are going to treat ourselves to the finest pasta, cocktails in all the land of Leeds….and glare at delicious Italian waiters…as we get very glamourously pissed.

I want one of Mel’s kittens!

(I love that I’ve just seen a picture of my friend Katty stood by a ‘Polling station’ sign with the words…

THEY SEE ME POLLIN’ ….THEY HATING…’ underneath it. 

Hahahaha! DYING.That’s what life’s about.)

I’ve run out of foundation, had no time to buy any, my hair extensions are falling to pieces and i’ve forgotten to watch Love Island. UGH! FFS! What is life!

 

 

 

 

The Next ‘IT’ Girl & Inspiration

319753_348091485255729_1604099843_n

Well I have certainly noticed that every little girl in a little bit of limelight, or a huge amount of stardust is wanting to be the next UK Girl of ‘IT.’ (And when i say, ‘every little girl,’ i’m referring to those in entertainment, who have maybe shone their bit of ‘look at me,’ been on the telly, wanting their moment of stardom, have been around for ages, or the ones that have just experienced their first five minutes and now want to roll it into a future.)

Of recent, I’ve been invited to blog a lot of events, do lunches, shimmie at celebrity parties etc..where i’ve charmingly chittered to huge amount of glittery people, hung out with a dandy bunch of ‘heels’ and watched everything or nothing taking place, right before my very eyes, be it in public, behind the scenes or in Cyberland. (I watched everything closely. I adore the psychology behind it all. I love studying people and seeing what makes them tick, what their next move is…like a creepy but glamourous stalker Lol…..and like i’m some kind of dodgy Mystic Meg, I predict stuff accurately with a *wiggle,* a *giggle* and a bloody good *wink.*

2017 is the year that everyone shoots for a ‘COMEBACK!’

I’ve heard this phrase been thrown about a lot at events…

‘I want to be the next Kim Kardashian.’

Or

‘ We ARE the answer to the Kardashians.’

And it’s sort of making me smirk a little and I shouldn’t, because gosh, i’ve felt all that before. I get it. But i guess, the problem here is, that there already is a Kim Kardashian and you can’t BE HER EVER. You can only BE YOU. (Hard to hear, I know. But it’s true.) And to top it all off, there is also three more Kardashians and two Jenner’s, who have quite solidly and rather excellently formed some kind of ‘IT’ girl, power house that has taken over the world. It’s amazing. Who WOULDN’T want to be them! Well done! *Applause all round.*

BUT like i said, THEY ARE The Kardashians and you can’t be them. Nor can you be the UK’s answer to them. They ARE ‘THEM.’ And they’ll glitter piss all over you, if you attempt to wangle on their block.

However, i’m not trying to be negative here, as if anything i’m a positive person, a warm hearted being, i’m ambitious, fun loving and someone who enjoys to inspire and be inspired. I’m not one of those ‘tooly’ narky people, who just moan at everything. They’re dicks. But i’m honest and loyal to my honesty. So what i’m trying to say, is that THE ONE AND ONLY THING THAT YOU CAN DO OR BE BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE….IS YOU!

Not another single other being on this entire planet can be you, better than you, so do it well. Don’t focus on what other’s are doing or what they’re being, or how they’re looking or what they’re saying. By all means, be inspired by them. Study them. That’s what they’re there for. All great new ideas have usually been formed off the back of someone else’s great idea. Yet remember to concentrate on what YOU’RE doing, what’s great about YOU, as a brand or a person remember what YOU stand for. What YOU celebrate! And when you do that, and you stay focused, you work hard, you be creative with it, and give it your all, your time, your heart, your dedication, but you do it well, you do it smartly. You proactively move towards your goal and you use your flipping brain. If you do all that, I think you’ll find that people may begin to notice…and when they do…YOU SMASH IT!!

Focus on what you do well…and do it!

So yes, Kim K has done really well and that means it CAN BE DONE, so you CAN be the next UK girl of ‘IT.’ You don’t have to BE her, LOOK like her, DO like her…You just be you, as there’s room for everyone, to ‘BOSS IT.’ Some are going to be better than other’s at it. In 2017 EVERYONE’S ATTEMPTING A COMEBACK. (Including myself. But more than anything, career wise…i’m a blogger, a writer..that has turned into this mini sized ‘personality,’ after being on the telly for a bit, being a model for a bit and  designing a sex toy range for Ann Summers…a bit. But i did it all well. I like to think that i made ‘impact’ because you an do a lot of things and have no one notice. Lol)

But back to his ‘IT’ girl malarky, like i said, when Kim wanted to be the next Girl of ‘IT’ she was watching the likes of Hilton, who had the world eating out of her hand. She knew her personally and had done for years, even went to school with her and she was nothing like Paris, yet had the same ambition.

Obviously I know Paris well, I am a product of her UK TV show, I spent a lot of time with her, when she was at her PEAK and that was during filming and after the show had ended. ( I have a lot to be thankful for, to the producers and casting at ITv2 for putting me on that show. It put wind under my sails and i am a massive Hilton fan, as i’ve never watched a girl work harder.)  But yes, both of those chicks, utterly different, yet both absolute ‘BOSSES’ of ambition.

So with the right ingredients, determination and the correct people on your side…you can do it too. (Something tells me that Hilton is about to sly on in and snatch back her crown from Kim K. Lol I can see it.)

Anyway, away from that….today I was utterly inspired. Right, I drive. But i have this driver, this taxi guy who I always use when i need to go to an event, i need a last minute glammy run or just a driver that I can trust. Today, I called upon him to ride ‘Baby Junior and I’ to Toys R Us in Doncaster. (Important Event.) I don’t know why i called him for a lift, but I did and it seems as though whenever i need a pep talk, because all yesterday I was getting stressed, ‘The Gods’ up above send me ‘Rob The Driver.’ He’s like a weird Guardian Angel.

I get in, we start talking, I ask him about his world, we have a giggle, Junior asks for the tunes cranked up and Rob then shoots in and asks me about my world. We talk life, love, work and dating. Now, Rob’s seen through the years, driven the car with different male faces in the back, over the years, rode me to events, piked me up from them and heard all the gossip and well…he’s in good stead to deliver advice, without me asking, into Wunna land.

And to cut a long story short…after he had told me that I needed to date someone as ‘busy and ambitious’ as I was, who had similar goals, as no one else would do, as they would either be suffocating, not part of my ‘team,’ or just not get it.

‘Not to be funny Chrissie. But if i wasn’t to know you and was to see you in a bar, i wouldn’t DARE come up to you and ask you out. You don’t see it, but i do. You have a way of making a guy feel less masculine without you even knowing. That’s why you need to date someone who is ballsy, confident, doing well, has his own life going down and is on a similar path. Someone that you can look up too and think WOW! However that will just come.’

Like I said, i’m never too stressed out by my love life. It’ll all work out in the end. He’ll find me. He’ll pursue me. He’ll win me, f that’s the way it goes. Sorted. Fairytale box *ticked.* I mean Cinderella lost her goddamn shoe at an event ‘cos she was PISSED, not late for the carriage. It was Prince Charming who did all the leg work and found her, to make him hers. 🙂

But MORE IMPORTANTLY…

Rob ‘The Driver’ said this one thing, before Baby Junior and I left his car to wipe Toy R Us out, whilst everything was on sale…and that was this…

‘I have always said no one I know works as hard as you Chrissie and you’ve just got this aura about you. You were built for this. No matter where you are, people know YOU’RE THERE!! Whether you win, whether you lose…People know you are there and that’s something that can’t be bought! So look, you’re OVER HALFWAY to the finish line now….This year, you just need to go for it.’

And with a smile, a nod and this whole warm feeling of absolute inspiration that rose all the way through my soul, to make me beam, I waved him ‘goodbye,’ grabbed by little son (Junior has my exact face and it freaks me out completely) and as I swung Rob’s door shut, I knew great things were coming…

Of course, it will be from my very own glamourous point f view, but I will be watching, loving, learning and delighting in all things beauty and fashion.

http://www.clothesshowlive.com/page.cfm/link=92

(Oh and to those of you who are messaging me to tell me that you are going to the event! I cannot WAIT to meet you! Dress to impress now! *Wiggle-wink*)

Okay, so I thought i’d give you the run down of some of the things you could be delighting in, if you were to step into this years world of British Fashion and Beauty at The Clothes Show Live.

If you’re the type of darling who adores a bit of catwalk, you can be mesmerized by the amazing catwalk shows on offer, running throughout the day every day! Why not venture to the Alcatel onetouch fashion theatre!

The theme this year is…

Oh yes darlings! ‘A weekend in the country…’ 

Very English. Very Proper. Very FUN! Also very much inspired by Cliveden house! A deliciously divine 5* estate! So expect a champagne, tweed and roses shindig. 🙂 *Air kiss-Air Kiss-Spiff-Spoff-Tatler-Darling*

If you love a catwalk show then you can’t get any better than at The Clothes Show live. If you have never been to one before, know that the atmosphere will be ALIVE. It will have you shimmi-ing in a diamond dripped frenzy of delight. Not to mention the LIVE music acts that also venture down the runway to sing you a little celebration and keep you in the mood! Union J are one of the bands taking a stance at The Clothes Show live this year! Oh yes girls….I suggest you bring your designer fans as an accessory to flutter your temperatures back down to sanity.

 

For the singletons or any of those who are a fan of all things Cupid! ‘TAKE ME OUT LIVE’ will be at The Clothes Show this year! So whilst you shop for your latest designer/highstreet goodies, you can watch good old sports take a chance at love, in good old ‘No likey- No lighty’ style!

Now, I know you hear a lot of people cheering on fashion. It is The Clothes show afterall! However please do not forget, and how could you forget that there will also be a very glamourous BEAUTY HALL for all those like moi, who find a bit of glitter sprinkle and luxury lippy DIVINE! The ‘Beauty Hall’ will be filled with experts, speakers, celebrities, music acts and press..all there to help you enjoy the upcoming trends and also their very current lines! Yes, you get to be right there in the action. There will be makeovers, tricks of the trade, celebrity brands and a whole lot of surprises instore…Be there and be involved. I certainly will be tottering around the Beauty Hall as of course it is going to me one of my favourite bits of the event. (Hellooo beauty range out next year. 🙂 )

Clothes Show TV will be there!

You’ve all seen the snippets from the ‘Bloggers Breakfast’ that I attended at the Sanderson. Well yes! You get to watch live segments of the show being filmed right before your very eyes, with star interviews, experts and of course blogger interviews, all in The Clothes Show TV studio.

They’ll also be (and this is NEW to the Clothes Show this year) a Social Shed, where YOU can share, update and post YOUR OWN Clothes Show experience right from the event itself! And as if that wasn’t great enough! But…(and for all of you who adore a bit of ‘look at me..’ the BEST POSTS will be zapped straight onto the large INTERACTIVE wall at the event. Meaning that everyone could see your Tweet, post, update or picture up on the BIG SCREEN and yes..at the biggest fashion event of the year!

For those of you who fancy a shot at a career in modelling. Select model management will be there, as always..scouting young talent for their fresh new books! That’s what great about The Clothes Show, because you can actually go and get discovered! Lots of model scouts and models themselves venture to the event to see and be seen! When I used to go as a young girl on school trips, two 3 of my friends, Leo, Fiona and Liz, were scouted EVERY TIME they went. Leo (who at the time was dating the infamous Kweku Adoboli, the year above me in school) was actually stopped 6 times. Always remember that you never know you you could meet at this show!

Now we all adore a little ‘A List treatment. So this year why not take a trip to the ‘Paparazzi Pen.’ #pappen

 

Yep, you can get photographed and enjoy the full paparazzi experience with your favourite celebs who will all be venturing down for a bit of *pose-pose-snap.* It makes the perfect profile picture and is certainly something you can boast about for years afterward! 🙂

Plus, THX (Total Hair Experts) are situated right NEXT TO the Pap pen,  meaning that before your celebrity close up, you can be treated to a glamourous hair makeover, so not only do you look your best, but you can give them that ‘Look at me’ with confidence! (I am using the THX curling tong that I got from the Bloggers Breakfast and let me tell you it is AMAZING. My hair has never been better. I’ve had people stop me in the street and tell me how much better my hair now looks! )

Now, the event isn’t  just for the mainstream dolls. There is a whole Vintage Ave, for you to explore, filled with quirky designers and old flavours from the past. In fact there’s even a ‘Customisation Station’ where you can revamp tired old items and give them a new lease of life! Sounds great to me! Maybe I can get get myself revamped in the process! 🙂

Honestly there is far too much going on for me to include in one blog, so as the days get closer I will tear open a little bit more of my bag of surprises for you!

However, I will leave you with a station of the event that is close to my heart!

YES! THE BLOGGERS BAR!

This year (and it’s all very new) there will be a BLOGGERS BAR set up at The Clothes Show live. It’s for Blogging Royalty only, (which is moi 😉 ) and they are all equipped with VIP Passes ready to report the goings on of the deliciously glamourous event.  So yeah, YOU get to watch the best bloggers in town…the ‘cream of the crop,’ the ‘ooh’s ‘ that make the ‘laa’ so magical, deliver and report their experience live to readers GLOBALLY and right before your very eyes. (I like to think that we’re a new brand of celeb. 🙂 But I would say that wouldn’t I!) This is how huge the show is this year! Everyone in the entire world can and will be involved and right from the Blogger Bars!

I hope you’re all excited and I really do hope to see you all there. I’m going to be in my rather fashionable glad rags, (which is always terrifying at it’s best) and i’m going to be covering every inch of the magic for you! LIVE!

 

I’m there every day so don’t be afraid to come say ‘Hello,’ whether it be for a cuddle, a wink, to be pointed in the right glitzy direction, to be featured in the blog, for a piccie or just for good old Paris Hilton gossip. 😉 BBF much!

See you there!
