DINING AT THE VILLA & THE ENTERTAINER

27 August 2015


Unfortunately sometimes, life simply gets too busy and I find myself barely having time to breathe let alone managing to find time to catch up with everyone I wish to. Last week, I finally managed to find time to go out to dinner at the Villa with one of my best friends. We caught up over cocktails, stupendous views and yummy food. 





Protecting your hair in Summer : Tips from Gordon Mayo


Spending the summer in Malta means long days at the beach in the sun, sand between your toes, days on a boat & salt and wind in your hair. As magical as it all sounds, and lets be honest, even those who hate the intense heat, have to admit that it can be pretty wonderful - all that sun, sea and play can start to cause some wear and tear to our bodies. One of the places sun and sea damage can show up is our hair. Hair is said to be woman's crowning glory which considering how exposed it tends to, should raise some concerns for our crown jewels.

Tony Ward is a Lebanese / Italian fashion designer, he spent seven years working and learning at large French fashion houses - Lanvin, Chloe and Dior - before starting his own label. 




Outfit Post : A little bit of Magic in The Air

24 August 2015


I love complicated outfits, that thrill of pairing different pieces together and create something unique something all yours, maybe something not everyone would wear. Sometimes however, there's nothing like a dress, in summer especially, dresses call out to me and beg to be worn in their simple, uncomplicated state. Many times I listen and then a beautiful, perfectly tailored, dress can give you a magical, wonderful feeling. 

This Roberto Cavalli dress from Rebelli made me feel like an absolute princess. I wore it last Saturday in Italy for an event in Subaudia to which I was invited as Vice President for Malta obo the Malta Chamber of Fashion. The dress has quite a vivid pattern so I kept my hair simple and slicked back, and for makeup I went for dark eyes and faded lips. A pair of Laura Biagiotti shoes (Stivaletti) and a vintage clutch bag completed the outfit for me.




Beauty : LABELM Styling & Half a Head of Curls


I'm quite a product junkie, especially when to comes to hair products - I have never met a product I didn't want to try, especially styling ones. LABELM have so many styling products that I get a bit confused and flustered between them all. So the LABELM guys in Malta asked to go in for a styling half and half session - basically half my curls would be styled one way and the other half, another way.

If you're unfamiliar with the LABELM brand, it's basically the hair product brainchild from Toni&Guy and their forte is styling products. Photo above was taken backstage at a London Fashion Week Show by Kurt Paris.




Clean Living : Breakfast with a Difference

22 August 2015



I've spent most of my life being a total carb addict - bread, pasta, crisps - it's the food group that excites me most. When I first started cleaning up my diet and took up the Plan H program, the hardest thing to do without was bread and butter as my daily breakfast.

I still miss it, I mean after all, bread and I had a love relationship that spanned decades, you can't just forget about all those feelings within a few months and when I travel on holiday, exceptions are made, relationships renewed. I have, however, found a healthy compromise for those days when I'm neither on holiday nor in 'cheat mode' - banana bread. I first heard of banana bread a few years ago whilst in Sydney, it was all the rage there but I turned up my nose at it as something 'strange', 'carb hating' people would eat.

Fast forward a few years, I'm subscribed to Plan H and they include it regularly on their menu so I was forced to try it, - I was pleasantly surprised to find I like it.
