While on my yearly trip to Mykonos, I have a number of products that I’m crushing on this year.

Here are my top five holiday beauty products.

  1. After a long day in the sun an after-sun body cream is essential, I’ve been using our 24ct Body Cream Soufflé it helps to instantly hydrate while the Shea Butter soothes, leaving my skin soft and nourished.
  2. To protect my skin I use SPF30 Sunspot Filter it’s my favourite product at the moment as it gives a high protection with SPF30 but is still a light weight formula and rubs in quickly and easy with no mess.
  3. Gold Bee 24ct Gold Super Serum works to plump the skin, leaving my skin super soft with a healthy youthful glow. I us this morning and night for a radiant complexion.
  4. On holiday I don’t like to cake my face with heavy foundations, so I use Instaglam Skin Tint HAMPTONS it’s a great tinted moisturiser that provides medium coverage, so my skin can shine through and leaves me with a dewy natural glow.
  5. Glamsticks are my Holiday go-to product, as they provide instant hydration to the lips, they protect with built in SPR15 and keep my lips nourished and looking the part! I use PSYCHO it’s a coral orange that works perfectly for holiday!

maria and Calvin Klein Event

Last night I attended the Calvin Klein Jeans and party at Rosenfield Porchini.

I was honoured to be part of this event, as Calvin Klein campaigns have always been such a big influence to the fashion industry. Lottie Moss has now modelled for Calvin Klein 21 years after Kate did her first campaign for the brand – and now she’s hitting the fashion party scene!

The event was full of celebs and it had a great atmosphere. My style for night included a vintage jumpsuit with Saint Lauren white pointy pumps, Mulberry clutch with my her in loose curls. A great 70’s inspired look that I loved.

Daisy looked gorgeous, in Calvin Klein shorts and oversize top.

Great night!



Last night was our Nip+Fab press event to celebrate our new Dragons Blood Fix Range and our beautiful brand ambassador Millie Mackintosh. We hosted the event  on a rooftop suite in the Soho Hotel the room was beautiful and had the most amazing view of London.

I wore this great structured tunic from one of my favourite designers Mary Katranzou, with grey skinnies and my favourite lace up Aquzzura shoes for the perfect tea party event look!

A number of celebrities attend the event including Millie Mackintosh, Julian McDonald and Mellissa Odabash. Who all looked wonderful!

Millie stole the show with a printed silk shirt dress from the British designer Eleanor linden, with grey strappy block sandals and her hair worn in her usual trade mark style loose curls! Millie looked beautiful!

Thanks for everyone who attended it was great success!



Last night was the Serpentine Summer Party in Hyde Park, I love this event the sun is always shining and location is beautiful. The event had a very glittering guest list, with an array of A-listers everyone from Bradley Cooper to Cara Delevingne!

I wore one of my favourite designers Mary Katrantzou, a sky blue textured tunic with a dipped hem on one side and cut off vintage shorts. One of my favourite party bags as its small, but gives a wow impact is my red Chanel Lego cross bag. I teamed this with electric blue wedges and my hair in loose curls, the perfect summer party outfit.

I loved so many looks from the night. Cara looked beautiful and classic in a long black gown, with her hair in simple but effective pony tail. Suki Waterhouse wore a low cut, dusty pink chiffon gown she looked stunning.

The highlight of the night was the performance from Pharrell Williams he sounded amazing and owned the crowd.

Olivia Palermo goes all Carrie Bradshaw on us as she marries her beau in an untraditional super chic assemble.

Olivia always looks effortlessly stylish, she has a great edge about her where she can put looks together that don’t traditionally work and look incredible!

On her wedding day she did not disappoint and stuck to her edgy but classic style. She looked absolutely stunning in a cream jumper with ostrich feathers, a white tulle skirt and matching shorts all by Carolina Herrera, adding cobalt Manolo Blahniks to act as her ‘something blue.’

She wore her hair in a loose but well put together pony tail, with her make-up subtle but effective. She had perfectly groomed brows, with a slightly smokey eye, rose cheeks and finished with a dusty pink lip.

Congratulations Olivia you looked beautiful, a wedding look that will be remembered for all the right reasons!

Glamour Magazine bags the best celebrities for their front covers, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to their glamorous awards they pull out all the stops! Everyone looked incredible, I had serious outfit envy from every corner of the room.

Some of the most glamorous celebrities attended, everyone from Cat Deeley to Caroline Flack and Daisy Lowe. Although we are now technically in summer, from the look of the fashion choices not many people are in the summer mode just yet. Black dominated the event with mesh, satin and leather playing a huge part in a number of looks.

My favourite look from the event was Daisy Lowe, who wowed the red carpet in a black satin plunging 50s-inspired prom princess gown. She looked divine, I love the unique twist she brought to such a classic look!


Met Gala Ball 2014

The Met Gala Ball was full of the most amazing dresses, jewels and dapper suits!  This is one event where all the A-list celebrities pull out all the stops, in head-to-toe designer to grace their presents on that famous red carpet!

This year I was certain that the steps would be full of pastel ball gowns and top hats, as the theme was ‘White Tie and Decorations’ to tie in with the exhibition of designer Charles James. The theme was of course picked by none other than the brilliant Anna Wintor. We saw the opposite of pastels we saw bright colours, block dresses, beading and even feathers!

One of my favourite looks was led by Victoria Beckham who wore a strapless white column dress, although this look was not directly within the theme I loved the simplicity and the fresh cut lines.

Rachel McAdams opted for a blush Ralph Lauren column gown, while Anne Hathway went for a red hot Calvin Klein Collection crop top and skirt. Rihanna wore an all white ensemble showing off her incredibly toned mid driff!

I adored so many looks from last night, Blake Lively looked beautiful in a bespoke Gucci dress she oozed Hollywood glamour!



Last night I attended the Fendi Store opening on New Bond Street a star studded event.  The new store did not disappoint, it looked incredible with Fendi’s usual trademark layout, luxury beautifully displayed handbag and shoe walls with grand seating! We were showered with champagne and canapés on arrival.

The event was full to the brim of a-list stars, everyone from Lilly Allen to Karl Lagerfeld himself! Karl wore his usual attire large white collar shirt, gloves and his trademark sunglasses he looked super cool as always.The store looked beautiful I will be visiting soon to pick up some summer essentials!


Cougar Skin

cougar-groupThis month we launched the Cougar Skin range and I couldn’t be more excited.  The Cougar Skin Range consists of three innovative products, The Cougar Skin Gravity Cream, the Gravity Booster and the Gravity Body Serum. The theory behind cougar is that ageing is caused by a drop in hormones. Our oestrogen levels drop dramatically from the age of 35 causing lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The cougar range contains phytosteroids that trick the skin into thinking that is being injected with oestrogen. As a result the skin is pumped with collagen and becomes firm with a rosy glow. The range is also packed with retinol and vitamin D.

I’ve been using all three and really loving the results. My favourite is the Cougar Skin Zero Gravity Cream, it works to rebalance the skin – it makes me look as if I just had a good nights sleep. Chromabright works to break down age spots and even the skin tone for an even flawless complexion. This cream is ideal for a number of different skin tones to smooth any signs of ageing out, whilst hydrating the skin creating an even flawless finish.

Cougar or not this range is a must, give it try you won’t regret it.
