#FAMOUSLASTWORDS Event At Werewolf LDN

On Thursday I attended the #FAMOUSLASTWORDS event at Werewolf LDN which was held by Boohoo and fashion & style PR Guru Nick Ede. Together with the help of their celebrity friends such as Mel B and Kelly Osbourne, they formulated an incredible t-shirt range, which is available at Boohoo for only £12! All profits raised will go to The Stroke Association. The charity is near and dear to Nick's heart and you can read his personal story at Style for Stroke. The night itself was an array of celebrities, cocktails, glitz & glam and of-course eyeing up the stunning models wearing the gorgeous slogan t-shirt which are so versatile! I can already think of so many ways to style them! Check out the action below.

Aishwarya Rai - Twenty Years Since She Won Miss.World

So even though I'm completely immersed in the world of Hollywood film and television, growing up I was utterly obsessed with the world of Bollywood. And for me there was no other role model growing up then the other-wordly gorgeous actress Aishwarya Rai. I was in awe of her face, that won the Miss.World crown in 1994 and went onto grace the stages of Oprah, Tyra Banks and David Letterman who were equally drawn to her beauty. The past few years, a sense of reality caught up with her in terms of marriage and having a daughter- However, when I saw a picture of her at this years Cannes, my love affair was re-ignited. Looking at the following pictures, it isn't difficult to see why she's an eternal icon of beauty.

Brys Buzz Campaign Launch at Tower Bridge Walkways

So I've been a part of the Brys Buzz campaign which is in sole UK partnership with Claremont Property Group. Working with Its PR, I have been in knee deep with the PR aspect of this lavish real estate development which has laid its roots in India. On Monday 12th May, the first VIP launch event was held at Tower Bridge Walkways for NRIs and wealthy Indians to learn more about Brys Buzz. Rahul Gaur (CEO-Brys Group) and his partner Navneet Gaur gave an exciting presentation about the 'super green luxury residencies' and were on hand to talk to the media. The Brys building stands in at 300ft giving it the title of 'the tallest building in Northern India'. It also places a significant emphasis on eco-living, making the world a better place! Oh and it will also have hypermarkets, spas, state of the art gyms and much more. Basically you don't ever have to leave the building. But if you do, why not use the helicopter pad? Impressive stuff. The rest of the night was a whirlwind of mingling, feasting on delicious Indian canap├ęs and sipping pretty cocktails. And let's not forget indulging in our spectacular views. I purposely interrupted a few people who were gazing out at the skyline so I could have a chat. Literally no place better in London.

Bates Motel Season 2 Review

Bates Motel Season 2 Review
Norma and Norman Bates
The cover photo on Bates Motel's Facebook states that the new season will re-open in 2015. Nope. I can't wait that long either. Season 2 just came to a chilling end and I'm so thankful it has been picked up for a third season and I actually enjoy the fact that it doesn't have the elevated success such as Breaking Bad, Games of Thrones etc. It has the quiet quality such as my other favourite show Criminal Minds. I feel that too much hype too soon would influence writers for the 'need' to deliver- But they're doing such a fabulous job, I would hate to see them get side tracked. I literally can't get enough- the fascinating psyche of Norman Bates and his intense relationship with his mother Norma is what compels me to tune in each week. Not to mention the eerie backdrop of White Pine Bay which harbours the glorious haunting Bates' residency.

Bates Motel Season 2 Review
Emma played by Olivia Cooke
Throughout the second season I was surprised to see Nicola Peltz's character dissolve, yet I was glad Max Thieriot was given the opportunity to blossom with his character Dylan. Only in the final episode did I see a heart-warming embrace between him and Norma which was portrayed in exactly the right moment, right way and with the right emotion. Vera Farmiga on the whole has been impeccable- one of my favourite actresses! Her craft is so brilliantly honed, I take an extraordinary amount of inspiration from her. Oh and our Brit boy, star of the show Freddie Highmore! It was like the character of Norman Bates was written for him. Within the realms of TOWIE and Made in Chelsea it's great to see a young British actor who is so talented and quite frankly, needs to win an award. Talking about Brits- Emma! Played by big eyed beauty Olivia Cooke, her original accent just makes me want to chill with her. What a fantastic young actress who's taking this show to mould her career. If she gets killed off, I give up.

In terms of the finale ending, it was literally the most perfect ending ever. Quite simple in its delivery and no cliff-hangers like last season but that cold gaze right down the camera lens by Norman Bates will go down in my history books as one of my favourite on-screen moments ever. Creepy, calculating, evil, stunning.

Gabourey Sibide's Brilliant Response to Body-Shamers

Before you body-shame another woman or even yourself, read this bloody brilliant speech by Gabourey Sibide

"Gabourey, how are you so confident?' It's not easy. It's hard to get dressed up for award shows and red carpets when I know I will be made fun of because of my weight. There's always a big chance if I wear purple, I will be compared to Barney. If I wear white, a frozen turkey. And if I wear red, that picture of Kool-Aid that says, "Oh, yeah!" Twitter will blow up with nasty comments about how the recent earthquake was caused by me running to a hot dog cart or something. 

And ‘Diet or Die?’ This is what I deal with every time I put on a dress. This is what I deal with every time someone takes a picture of me. Sometimes when I'm being interviewed by a fashion reporter, I can see it in her eyes, "How is she getting away with this? Why is she so confident? How does she deal with that body? Oh my God, I'm going to catch fat!”

 ‘How are you so confident?’ I'm an asshole! Okay? It's my good time, and my good life, despite what you think of me. I live my life, because I dare. I dare to show up when everyone else might hide their faces and hide their bodies in shame. I show up because I'm an asshole, and I want to have a good time. And my mother and my father love me. They wanted the best life for me, and they didn't know how to verbalize it. And I get it. I really do. They were better parents to me than they had themselves. 

I'm grateful to them, and to my fifth grade class, because if they hadn't made me cry, I wouldn't be able to cry on cue now.  If I hadn't been told I was garbage, I wouldn't have learned how to show people I'm talented. And if everyone had always laughed at my jokes, I wouldn't have figured out how to be so funny. If they hadn't told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty. And if they hadn't tried to break me down, I wouldn't know that I'm unbreakable. So when you ask me how I'm so confident, I know what you're really asking me: how could someone like me be confident? Go ask Rihanna, asshole!"

Preach.

Best Dressed at the Met Ball 2014

Definitely one of the most fashion forward event of the year- the Met Ball 2014! The stars came out in full force at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where they donned garments in respect of the theme- 'White Tie and Decorations'. The theme for me was a very wide one which spawned many different interpretations, compared to last years Punk theme. There were a variety of styles mixed in from slinky evening gowns, ball gowns to short dresses. I had a fun (and amusing) time sifting through all the looks and have summarised the fashion of the night below. Enjoy and let me know if you agree!

THE ROMANTICISTS 
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West 


THE SINGER, PRINCESS & STARLET

Naked And Afraid - Current New Obsession

Who wants a bit of education and some epic television rolled into one? If that appeals to you, why not check out Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid? Just one word of warning, bring a lot of snacks because you might end up feeling just a wee bit hungry.

Can you survive in the most remote parts of the world?
Each episode features two survivalists- a man and a woman who are left in the harsh conditions of the wilderness for 21 days. A new location across the world is chosen in each episode. Oh and of-course, they're naked! In the three weeks, the pair must find water and food to survive, build shelter and start a fire to keep the predators away and find their way to the extraction point where they'll be rescued on the final day.

Manu Toigo forever scarred by her experience.

Toughing it out!
Sounds exhausting? Well...it is. The small camera crew (who leave once night falls and the contestants video cams are used) capture their excruciating exhaustion, desperation and sheer determination in goosebump inducing animalistic cinematography. The awkwardness of their nudity is dismissed as soon as the contestants end their initial formalities and straight away you're engulfed in their journey. Prepared to be floored by some of contestant's clever bravery and get frustrated over others' lazied fatigue from the on-set. Some have tapped out of the challenge, unable to conquer nature's harsh reality, whilst one contestant in the nail biting season one finale- admirable Manu Toigo was rewarded for her survival with excruciating Dengue Fever, days after returning home. She now faces months and even years of recovery. Unbelievable.

At the beginning of their challenge, each contestant is measured for their PSR score (Primitive Survival
Rating) based off predictions and observations of survival fitness based on experience, skill and mental strength. Most PSR's have increased at the end of each episode, with only a handful that have dropped- a stark reality that they aren't as able as they thought they were to survive in the jungle. Their physical transformations are remarkable as well with all of them losing huge chunks of their weight! Personally, I would never go on a show like this, but if I was ever stranded in a similar situation in real life, hopefully this show has taught me something!
