London Lifestyle Awards 2012

Here are a few pictures from the London Lifestyle Awards 2012. It was a great night and we all had a lot of fun! Anna Iskenderova from Beauty Agents gave me a manicure, pedicure and massage (great way to feel relaxed!) and also groomed my eyebrows and hairline (so the tumbling curls would fall on my forehead just so!).

It was great meeting showbiz journalist Zoe Griffin. She was one of the first journalists to have written about me when I launched my career as a Fashion & Lifestyle Presenter, 4 years ago (OMG, has it been that long?!). Since then we’ve bumped into each other at various events.

This glamourous woman is Yusura Bush, a circus performer who has trained at Cirque du Soleil. She’s great fun. We were at the same table, me with my friend & massage therapist Louis Szikora and Yusura with celebrity hairdresser Stuart Phillips.

 All eyes were on the fabulous drag queens from Freedom Bar, Soho, when they entered the room!  They also hogged the cameras and stood super tall and super glam, giving the photographers exactly what they wanted. I wasn’t surprised to see some female celebrities looking at this lot’s ultra-extravagance with jealousy!

 It was great meeting celebrity hairdresser Stuart Phillips. The last time I saw him was when I appeared on his radio show. Did you know that Stuart has been the official hairdresser to the Television BAFTA‘s, for three consecutive years? 

By the way, all these photos (including those in the gallery) were clicked by Francesco and Dino, two hot Italian guys who run FDphoto.co.uk.  They are always efficient and prompt, and you never have to chase them up for photos. They were even kind enough to airbrush off my slightly swollen lower right eye lid (still recovering from eye problem!) so cleverly. You can’t even tell!
