My trip to London Fashion Week.

So as you know, I was the lucky winner of the BaByliss "Showcase Your Look" competition which means I was treated to the amazing prize of a luxurious weekend at London Fashion Week. Me and my friend Sophie swanned down to London on Friday morning to arrive at the beautiful Soho Hotel. Over the weekend we were treated to delicious food, swanky cocktails and amazing spa treatments all courtesy of the lovely people at BaByliss. As promised, here are but a few of my photos from the weekend...

I got a manicure.


Sophie bought me Wonderland and a cupcake.


Of course we did a spot of shopping too.

But, of course the highlight of the weekend was going backstage at the House of Holland show before taking our front row seats to watch Mr. Holland's fantastic A/W 2012/13 collection float down the catwalk.


Hair and make-up backstage.




The AMAZING invites to the show.

This is a sneaky little video I took of the finale (sorry it's so rubbish!)



And this is another nice little video by BaByliss. I got to meet Adam Reed while he was styling the models hair. He was absolutely lovely and it was amazing to watch him work!

On Saturday night we enjoyed dinner at the hotel's amazing Refuel Restaurant. The food was delicious and they even bought us out a little treat to celebrate Sophie's birthday.





So, thank you so much to the lovely people at BaByliss for an absolutely amazing weekend, I will never forget it!

live fast, die young, bad girls do it well.

Can't stop listening to this. M.I.A literally can't make a bad song. Sick that it debuted on Noisey also, if you haven't subscribed to their youtube already, you should. I think they will be providing us with plenty more exciting stuff where this came frome.



The video was shot in Ouarzazate, Morocco, and is directed by Romain Gavras (M.I.A. “Born Free” and JUSTICE “Stress”)

"It was dope to have so many people from so many different backgrounds speaking so many different languages come together to create something that we believed in,” says M.I.A about the video. “I thought I was gonna die on the shoot when I saw the drifting. It was a four day shoot so everyone was on edge the whole time specifically ME when I had to do bluesteel singing to the camera while the cars did doughnuts on the wet road ten feet away. In my mind I was thinking how I was gonna deliver the video to Vice with no legs."

ABOUT NOISEY:

Noisey, VICE's new music channel on Youtube, will offer music fans the most extensive slate of original online music programming to date. Noisey's Youtube programming will cover not only the artists that matter most, but the trends and opinions that make up today's music culture.
