DON'T BE SCURRED

...IT'S ONLY ME. LOOKING MY MOST SCARIEST EVER, I FIGURED IT WAS APPROPRIATE FOR TODAY. IT'S A PRODUCTION STILL TAKEN FROM THE SET OF THE NEUTRONICS FORTHCOMING MUSIC VIDEO 'SHE'S GOTTA BE' PRODUCED, STYLED AND DIRECTED BY MY GOOD FRIEND KO AND THE UNKOWN POETS TEAM WHERE, LUCKY FOR ME, I PLAYED AN 'UGLY BETTY' TYPE CHARACTER. HAPPY HALLOWEEN READERS.

NUDE FOR NOVEMBER

FASHIONISHA FAVE KIM KARDASHIAN HAS POSED NAKED IN THE NOVEMBER ISSUE OF W MAGAZINE. WITH JUST WIND SWEPT HAIR AND A SPRAYING OF SILVER BODY PAINT, THIS IS A CAPTIVATING SPREAD THAT ONCE AGAIN SHOWS CURVACEOUS KIM AIN'T SHY WHEN IT'S TIME TO STRIP OFF.

M.I.A. SHOWS XXXO TO THE BURKA

MOST STARS LIKE TO SHOW OFF IN 'LESS IS MORE' ON THE RED CARPET, BUT CONTROVERSIAL SINGER M.I.A. PUSHED FASHION BOUNDARIES AND DONNED A FULL LENGTH BURKA AT A LOS ANGELES AWARDS SHOW LAST WEEK. THE BURKA, TRADITIONALLY WORN BY DEVOUT MUSLIM WOMEN FEATURED AN ABSTRACT PRINT OF HER UPCOMING ALBUM COVER ON THE FRONT. I SAW A MUSLIM LADY IN HER BURKA IN OUR HOTEL SWIMMING POOL IN SWELTERING EGYPT AND ADMIRED THE LENGTHS AT WHICH SOME MUSLIM WILL GO TO EMBRACE THEY'RE CULTURE - MAYBE M.I.A. WAS TRYING TO RELAY THIS SAME MESSAGE.

TICKLE ME PINK THEN

CASSIE WAS SPOTTED OUT LAST WEEK IN A HOT PINK BODY CON MINI DRESS BY NEW YORK'S YOUNG HIP DESIGNER LAQUAN SMITH. THE LONG SLEEVE BRINGS THIS DRESS PERFECTLY INTO AUTUMN/WINTER AND YET LOOKS SIZZLING AGAINST HER GOLDEN GLOW - SOMETHING THAT I HAVE NOW MANAGED TO ACQUIRE AFTER EGYPT I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW. OTHER CELEBS (AND YOURS TRULY SQUEEZING COUSIN) HAVE GIVEN THIS COLOUR A WHIRL AND IT ALWAYS LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN A WINNER. PINK IS FOR GIRLS AFTER ALL SO EMBRACE IT!

THE MOBO (MUSIC OF BLACK ORIGIN) AWARDS TOOK PLACE AT ECHO ARENA IN LIVERPOOL ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH STRICTLY COME DANCING STAR ALESHA DIXON CO-HOSTING THE EVENT ALONGSIDE RADIO 1 DJ REGGIE YATES. DIXON WORE A NOT SO FLATTERING BLACK AND PINK MINI DRESS WITH POINTED SHOULDER CONES AND TRAIN BY QUINTANA COUTURE.

THE DUDES WORE THEIR SUNDAY BEST AND IMPRESSED WHERE AS THE GIRLS OUTFITS GENERALLY LACKED THAT PIZZAZZ.

I'VE BEEN GONE FOR A MINUTE

...NOW I'M BACK WITH A BLOG POST. WELL HELLO AGAIN, I'VE MISSED THIS. I WILL BE UPDATING YOU ON MY EGYPTIAN ADVENTURE ONCE ALL 200 AND SOMETHING PHOTOGRAPHS ARE IN ORDER BUT UNTIL THEN I BRING YOU NEWS OF CHERYL COLE AND THE EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE OF HER NEW SINGLE 'PROMISE' ON X-FACTOR LAST NIGHT. CAN'T QUITE BELIEVE I'M TALKING ABOUT THAT SHOW AS I'M NOT A FAN AND NOR DO I HAVE THE PATIENCE FOR IT, BUT 1. I LOVED HER FRISKY WOLFORD BANDAGE PRINT TIGHTS AND 2. MY GORGEOUS FRIEND (FAR LEFT) AND HIS GORGEOUS CREW DID AN AMAZING JOB DANCING ALONGSIDE HER ON STAGE AND IN HER MUSIC VIDEO - SO, NATURALLY, I'M SHOWING MY SUPPORT AND OF COURSE SWOONING SIMULTANEOUSLY. NICE TIGHTS AND NICE TIGHT CHESTS.

HAIR DONE, NAILS DONE, EVERYTHING (NEARLY) PACKED

THE BIG REVEAL. I'M GOING TO EGYPT TOMORROW. THE GIRLS AND I ARE OFF TO NAAMA BAY, SHARM EL SHEIKH FOR A WEEK. NOT TO RUB IT IN OR ANYTHING BUT THE CURRENT TEMPERATURE STANDS AT 36 DEGREES CELSIUS, ERM HOT THEN. SO I JUST WANTED TO SAY FAREWELL AND LEAVE YOU WITH A PARTING POST OF MY PRE-HOLIDAY PEDI/MANI AND HALF PACKED TRUSTY POLKA DOT SUITCASE. I HAVEN'T BEEN BEFORE SO WHEN I THINK OF EGYPT I THINK OF MICHAEL JACKSON'S REMEMBER THE TIME VIDEO, ALTHOUGH THAT'S PROBABLY NOT GOING TO BARE ANY DEPICTION OF WHAT TO EXPECT IS IT? NO NISHA. WELL I'VE BEEN GIVEN 6 TOP TIPS FROM A FRIEND WHO'S JUST RETURNED SO THAT MIGHT SERVE ME BETTER. SEE YOU GUYS ON THE OTHER SIDE, WHO KNOWS I MAY RETURN A MARRIED WOMAN.

P.S. THE NAILS HAVE BEEN LACQUERED WITH AMERICAN APPAREL'S 'MOUSE' SHADE.

  1. ALL THE MEN ARE HUNGRY SO YOU GIRLS WILL GET HARASSED EVERY 2 SECS AND GET AT LEAST 10 MARRIAGE PROPOSALS BY THE END OF THE FIRST DAY.
  2. NEVER ACCEPT THE FIRST PRICE FOR ANYTHING AND HAGGLE UNTIL...IT'S FREE.
  3. THEY USE AMERICAN ADAPTORS FOR THE PLUGS.
  4. YOU HAVE TO BE RUDE IF THEY DON'T LISTEN SO THEY KNOW YOU MEAN BUSINESS. 
  5. THERE ARE MORE RUSSIANS THERE THAN EGYPTIANS. 
  6. ALSO WHEN U GO TO HARD ROCK CAFE ASK FOR A SECURITY GUY CALLED FARIS, TELL HIM YOU KNOW ME, HE'S LOVELY SO HE WILL LOOK AFTER YOU GIRLS.

OUR MODERN DAY DOROTHY?

RIHANNA MADE AN APPEARANCE AT A MIU MIU FASHION SHOW IN PARIS LAST WEEK WEARING AN OUTFIT THAT IN MY EYES HAD AN UNCANNY RESEMBLANCE TO DOROTHY IN THE WIZARD OF OZ. JUST LIKE IN THE ORIGINAL 1939 FILM STARRING 'JUDY GARLAND', RIH RIH ALREADY SPORTS THE TOUSLED RED HAIR. SHE COMPLETES THE LOOK PERFECTLY HERE WEARING A CUTE FLORAL PRINT DRESS AND THOSE ALL IMPORTANT MAGIC RUBY RED SATIN PUMPS THAT ARE EVEN SET OFF WITH BLUE SOCKS...ALL SHE NEEDS NOW IS A YELLOW BRICK ROAD AND MAYBE A REMIX OF SOMEWHERE OVER THE 'RUDE' RAINBOW?

WEEKEND WONDERS

OUT IN BRIXTON AGAIN ON SATURDAY NIGHT AND AS WE SIPPED SWEET AMARETTO/COKE IN THE LAID-BACK 'WHITEHORSE' PUB I...DISCOVERED A NEW SONG THAT I INSTANTLY FELL FOR - BIG BOI'S 'TANGERINE', SNAPPED A VAMPISH LADY NAMED LAILA IN EXTRA TRENDY 'EMMA COOK' FOR TOPSHOP BOOTIES, WAS GREETED BY A RANDOM FALLING MAN PAINTING BEHIND THE TOILET DOOR WHEN I SAT DOWN TO WEE, AND QUITE LIKED THE 'V' PERMANENT PEN MARK THE DOORMAN MADE ON MY WRIST UPON ENTERING THE CLUB ACROSS THE ROAD - GOT ME THINKING ABOUT MY NEXT PROSPECTIVE TATTOO, ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T WORKED OUT THE SIGNIFICANCE YET. AAHH THE JOYS OF BRIXTON, IT AIN'T LET ME DOWN SO FAR.

IT LEFT ME TWITCHING, TWITCHING, TWITCHING

YUP HE'S A 'FINE BOY WITH NO PIMPLES' BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY REASON I LOVE THE SUPER STYLISH NIKE BLAZER WEARING TALENTED UK RAPPER TINIE TEMPAH. THANKS TO ONE OF MY TOTALLY THOUGHTFUL FRIENDS RIA WHO GRACED ME WITH HIS ALBUM 'DISC-OVERY' AS A GIFT, I'VE NOW FALLEN DEEPER IN LOVE. THIS DEBUT KEPT ME ENTERTAINED - SWIFTLY SWITCHING BETWEEN MANY MUSICAL GENRES AND IS WITTY, CHARMING AND SO SIMPLY CURRENT. IT GENERALLY FOCUSES ON TINIE'S LIFE - HOW HE CAME UP, HIS MUM AND HIS EARLY MEMORIES, ALL THE WHILE MERGING MORE MISCHIEVOUS STORIES ABOUT CHICKS, CARS, CASH, AND CLUBBING. ASIDE FROM STAND OUT TRACKS 'PASS OUT' AND 'FRISKY' MY FAVE HAS TO BE HOUSE TRACK 'MIAMI 2 IBIZA' WHERE MR TEMPAH TEAMS UP WITH SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA AND GIVES US SOMETHING UNEXPECTED BUT ADDICTIVE. DON'T WAIT FOR A GIFT, GO MAKE THE PURCHASE AND LET TINIE TAKE YOU ON A PLEASURABLE BOUNCY MUSICAL JOURNEY...

DON'T STEP ON MY...

NEW, BLUE SUEDE BOOTS. SO THESE BOOTIES COME IN BLACK AND GREY TOO BUT C'MOOON WITH BLUE SUEDE AS AN OPTION WHO NEEDS BLACK AND GREY?! THEY STOLE MY HEART, THE SAME WAY I GUESS THEY STOLE ELVIS'. OMG, I WAS SO REFERRING TO HIS SONG AND NOT THE THE CAUSE OF HIS DEATH. BLESS HIM. YOU CAN GET THEM AT OFFICE AND THEY'RE A NICE LITTLE UPDATE ON THE 'DESERT BOOT' STYLE. OH NOW THERE'S A CLUE TO MY HOLIDAY DESTINATION...IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHERE I'LL BE RIDING MY CAMEL NEXT WEEK COMMENT NOW!

I GAVE THE FINGER TO THE BROKEN RING

PRIMARK MONDAY WITH A QUICK URGE TO SPEND...I WAS THINKING A CUTE PAIR OF TIGHTS OR A FLIRTY AFTER HOURS UNDERWEAR SET, NO, TURNED OUT TO BE A BROKEN RING. IT WASN'T SO MUCH THAT I TOOK PITY ON IT, I JUST ACTUALLY LOVED IT WITHOUT THE GIANT CREAM PLASTIC LOOKING STONE IN THE MIDDLE. I PREFERRED THE WAY MY SKIN WAS EXPOSED UNDERNEATH AND THE WAY YOU COULD SEE THE SHAPE OF THE ATTACHMENT. CHUFFED, I SKIPPED TO THE COUNTER ONLY TO BE MET WITH BEWILDERED LOOKING FACES WHERE THE STAFF TOOK PITY ON ME AND KNOCKED IT FROM £2.50 TO £1. A BROKEN RING THAT DIDN'T BREAK THE BANK.

GETTING CARRIED AWAY

YOU SHOULD ALL BE AWARE BY NOW OF MY SHEER LOVE OF SEX AND THE CITY, SO IT'S NOT A WONDER THAT I EBAY BARGAIN BIDDED MYSELF A COPY OF 'THE CARRIE DIARIES' BY CANDACE BUSHNELL. THIS IS A COMING-OF-AGE STORY OF ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC CHARACTERS OF OUR GENERATION - CARRIE BLOODY BRADSHAW! BEFORE SEX AND THE CITY, MISS BRADSHAW WAS A SMALL TOWN GIRL WHO KNEW SHE WANTED MORE AND SHE'S READY FOR REAL LIFE TO START. IT TELLS THE STORY OF HOW A REGULAR GIRL LEARNS TO THINK FOR HERSELF, AND EVOLVES INTO A SHARP, INSIGHTFUL WRITER. APPARENTLY I'LL GET TO LEARN ABOUT HER FAMILY BACKGROUND, HOW SHE FOUND HER WRITING VOICE, AND THE INDELIBLE IMPRESSION HER EARLY FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS LEFT ON HER. I'LL EVEN GET TO SEE WHAT BRINGS CARRIE TO HER BELOVED NEW YORK CITY, WHERE HER NEW LIFE BEGINS. WATCH THIS SPACE COZ I HAVEN'T FLIPPED THE PAGES OPEN YET (I'M SAVING THE READ FOR MY HOLIDAY). OH YES I'M GOING ON HOLIDAY, MORE NEWS OF THAT TO FOLLOW. I KNOW, I'M SUCH A TEASE...
