Personal Tuesday

I feel so much better. I am not feeling great, but I feel a lot better. I went to Brighton at the weekend and saw my friends, which was great. Even though it was a battle actually going out in the first place. On Friday I decided to go and then I was very positive about going on Saturday until I had to get ready. While getting ready I changed my mind five times, getting ready is one thing, but then to go out and actually meet other people? Right now that's a huge step for me.

Last Wednesday I went to London to attend the 7th Annual Diamond Party hosted by Vashi Dominguez, the man behind Vashi Diamonds. I haven't been the Mahiki for a while and the place changed a lot. It used to be great, but it really has his best times behind it. Afterwards, I had more Mojitos and Yellowtail Sushi at Nobu on Berkeley Street with Vashi's German PR. She comes from the same town in Germany as me and we could talk about living in London, moving and cities we both visited. It was great to spend some time in London without the children, drinking Mojitos and finally have a conversation with another grown-up.

At the weekend I am invited to a lovely blogging event, it's afternoon tea on a double Decker bus touring around London. Tomorrow I am off to the News UK head office again to meet Nicki Waterman and the rest of the team. I really need support at the moment, it wasn't easy the last few months.

It's ten days until the Bloggers Christmas Party in London and I am so excited. The goody bags arrived today and the last products should arrive shortly. I am looking forward to fill the bags, set everything up and meet all the lovely bloggers that signed up to the event. All in all, I am more positive this week. I am trying to eat better, drink more water and I have also started taking Viridian supplements.

Vashi Dominguez's Annual Diamond Party at Mahiki

Last Wednesday I attended the 7th birthday party of Vashi Diamonds. The event was hosted by Vashi Dominguez at Mahiki. Mahiki is known for its amazing cocktails and the venue is located in Dover Street, Mayfair. On the guest list was a great mix of journalists, bloggers and celebrities, but they all had one thing in common: A love for diamonds.

Vashi Dominguez is a Spanish entrepreneur and founder, owner and CEO of Diamond Manufactures, which he started 2007 in London. He is known to regularly style celebrities including Rita Ora who wore Vashi jewels to the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards this year. Pixie Lott and Kristina wore his diamonds to the Elton John's annual end of summer party. To thank all his celebrity friends, the online diamond jeweller Vashi Dominguez gave away more than £150,000 worth of diamonds.

Coronation Street actress Michelle Collins, model Nicola McLean, CBB star Casey Batchelor, Made in Chelsea stars Olivia Newman-Young, Georgia Toffolo, Sophie Hermann and BBC Radio 2 presenter Vanessa Feltz attended the event amongst others.

The drink of the night was Mahiki's Coco Mojo, it's like a Mojito but better. I'm sure everybody is looking forward to the next Diamond Party. Have a look at Vashi's website and see how fantastic is collection is.

I’m so happy to see how excited everyone was to select diamond jewellery from my collection, that in itself made it all worthwhile.

Wishlist: Michael Kors Selma in Dark Dune

I couldn't believe my luck when I got an email last week, telling me that I won the 'Ladbrokes Choice' for the Great Summer Bake Off with my Slutty Brownies. I could choose vouchers for a store of my choice and of course I chose Selfridges. Even though I bought myself a new Michael Kors bag at the beginning of this month, I am already lusting after another: Selma in Dark Dune. All of my current Michael Kors bags are black and I really want to get some colour into my collection.

I absolutely love this colour, it's called dark dune, very classy and it goes with lots of colours well. The bag costs £315 and you can order it here

It is not hard to see why the A-list flock to MICHAEL Michael Kors for their city essentials with chic and versatile designs like the Selma satchel. Fashioned in saffiano leather, this structured day bag boasts an adjustable shoulder strap, additional carry handles and five internal pockets for organising your essentials. We love its distinct trapeze shape – carry yours in the crook of the arm to lend a dose of designer luxe to your everyday style. (Height 26cm, width 42cm, depth 15cm, handle drop 10cm, maximum strap length 105cm)
