Live, Laugh, Love Always Lydia Launch

Yesterday marked the official launch party of my first ever book, Live, Laugh, Love Always Lydia. 

This book is about my journey from start to finish, right up to what I'm looking for in the future. What an adventure it has been to write! I have laughed, cried, cringed and beamed with pride recounting all the crazy stories I have put into it. The 'Love' chapter needed to be completely rewritten half way through which was tough ... but it worked a bit like therapy and has taught me so much about myself.
I pinch myself all the time over how fortunate I have been. Not only was I born into the most magical family and given the most unique childhood - being part of a foster family full of love - but six years ago I landed a place on a little BAFTA award-winning show called TOWIE (I know, SIX years - crazy right?). Through it I have grown from a quiet, vulnerable teenager, who was honestly a bit lost in life, into an entrepreneur, fundraiser and worldwide adventurer all before my 22nd birthday.
Alongside my story, I've shared everything I now know that I wish I had back then. From dating rules, to make-up routines and the amazing work-out that got me bikini-ready for my TOWIE return in 2014. I've even packed it full of my favourite inspirational quotes, recipes, and photos (the good, the bad and the ugly!).

I have been working on my book for over eighteen months, so last night my support was out in force and what a celebration we had. Friends, family and work colleagues all toasted with plenty of champagne at the Dead Dolls House in North London.  

My book officially hits the shelves and goes on sale tomorrow. You can preorder now on Amazon and don't forget to enter my competitions to win £250 worth of makeup and for you and three friends to win a holiday to Marbella.

Cape Malay Exploring

My week in South Africa has been so very magical what a fascinating, beautiful part of the world. Here is a little fashion diary and story of my favourite day exploring the city. 

We woke up bright and early to start our day exploring the Cape Malay region, a suburb next to the city. We learnt all about the history of the brightly coloured area, housing many Asian slaves years ago. We ended the morning on a class cooking a traditional curry, it was delicious. 

Previously in the week mum got chatting to a wonderful American lady Britt Dyer  who is living and working in South Africa carrying out missionary work in the townships of Delft. She invited us to visit the soup kitchens, homework clubs and some of her friends homes. Experiencing true South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦. The kids were so happy in the centres practising their English with us and they loved the snapchat filters on my phone. 

The work Bettaway community church are doing is vital in these communities. Please read up and help support them by visiting
