Last night I headed East (!) to Westfield Stratford to celebrate the launch of Magnum’s new pop-up shop alongside model and TV presenter Kelly Brook.
Launching today, the Magnum London store at Westfield Stratford City will be open for seven weeks and give guests the options to create your own Magnum. If you’re daring, test the delicious marshmallow, salt, and popping candy concoction on white chocolate (don’t worry, there are plenty of “normal” flavours)! Visitors can also indulge in cocktails, desserts, and test out Magnum’s “Pleasure Pod”.
The Pleasure Pod – seen below – is the world’s first bio-responsive food installation and has been designed by neuroscientists for the past six months. The sensory environment uses skin tension, facial expression, deglutition (aka swallowing) and heartbeat data to capture your unique responses to the intense pleasure hit we receive when chowing down on a Magnum Infinity. I suggest you pop down and try it yourself, as there are stunningly unique visual animations projecting throughout your experience!

As the daughter of a former Playboy bunny
, there is always a pique in my interest regarding the latest and greatest from the glamorous guild.
Last night, Bunnies, tycoons, and celebrity beauties flocked to Mayfair’s Funky Buddha to rub shoulders with newly announced Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk. Also in attendance were model Kelly Brook and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger (cats versus bunnies!). Mark from The Only Way Is Essex even managed to make it out (and chatted to me about his love for next door’s Nobu), though fellow castmates Amy Childs, Sam Faiers and Harry Derbidge were denied entry (ouch!).
Throughout the night, I was sipping on a ton of Playboy’s new energy drink which is delicious and has no foul acidic aftertaste (looking at you, Red Bull). I even got into a friendly argument with the Oxford Rowing Team defending the sugar free version as the ‘better’ drink. Great night on all accounts!

When Janice Dickinson is on front row, you know you’re in for a treat. Giles Deacon had the best ‘model’ line-up of London Fashion Week, hands down; pregnant model-slash-TV presenter Abbey Clancy, curve-tastic Kelly Brook, (The A-Team…) Ana, Alessandra, Amber (Le Bon), Agyness and 71-year-old legend Veruschka, who closed. Giles just has an incredible eye. His collections are always a lesson in ‘How To Wear Colour‘, and with a sweet selection of fluorescent Sibling knits, he did not dissapoint. With a strong nineties club influence, he is pulling shapes like it’s nobody’s business. View Post
