Martini Celebrates 150 years!


To Lake Como this week for the 150th Anniversary Party of iconic drinks brand MARTINI. Hopping on the plane with RedCarpetFashionAward’s Catherine and Nik Thaker, we got talking about the art of packing- now I’d like to say I neatly packed a small LV holdall the night before, but in reality it was an early morning dash to City Airport as I threw in some Terry De Havilands, Florence Bridge Dresses, Olivia Von Halle PJs, a stack of new Flash Trash Girl rings and grabbed Thinking Fast & Slow on the way out the door.

Arriving into Milan in the madness of Fashion Week, we collided with Mark Ronson and co in the airport before we all set off to the hotel. A quick check in to The Boscolo and we were out to Trussardi Cafe for Lunch which turned into wine and deep discussions on social media traffic, engagement and brand awareness which promptly left 30 minutes to get ready. A few work emails and a skype call was balanced with some speedy application of NARS tinted moisturiser and this amazing new Lancome Eye Palette before we drove off to Villa D’Este, where the international party Martini had prepared was like the most glam thing EVER.  A huge red carpet led us to the illuminated villa, with Martini racing cars lined up outside and waiters with huge goblets of Martini Royale waiting for us. Inside and the global mesh of the drinking world elite were in full partying swing, delicious canapés floated around , and as we dived into the decadence , Fitzgerald was on my mind…

 “And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”- The Great Gatsby

Rosie arrived looking killer in a red dress with uber publicist Liz Matthews by her side mega babing in a Stella skirt. As we chatted dachsunds and jewellery in the corner, Lily Allen took to the stage performing 3 pitch perfect songs in her signature London style and just being her incredibly charming, funny self.  Mark Ronson then took to the decks, and our little Brit enclave went wild, dancing all night to a perfect mash up of hip-hop & electro pop. It was literally The Business International as representatives from almost every country in the world came down to get their chic on. 

 Only the most glamorous Italian drink, could have thrown such a blow out party. Thank you Martini for a hedonistic night of adventure. Now it’s back to all things Mashable & @MYFLASHTRASH as we hit #LONDONFASHIONWEEKEND got your tickets?

5 Things You Should Do Right Now


Fill your September with Fitzgerald and superlatives! Yes It’s September and that means 4 more months left of 2013. As Autumn kicks in, why not reflect on what you want to achieve for the rest of the year. What are you going to do now, tomorrow,  to make you look back on 2013 and think, yes that was a great year?

1. Buy New Stationary!  

Get It Done Zebra Notepad

Even if you’re not going back to school, there’s nothing quite like new pens and paper. I’m rather fond of these notepads from Rifle Paper Co, available at Liberty’s.

2. Watch Breaking Bad  

Not just because it’s the best TV show out there right now- great script, amazing actors- but because it’s also got a surprising amount of relevant wisdom for entrepreneurs. From following your passion and believing in your vision, to hiring loyal and intelligent workers. Click to read the full article on 4 Startup Lessons From ‘Breaking Bad’

3. Read Drunk Tank Pink

This psychology book looks at how our decisions are influenced on a subconscious level. From proof that you are more creative when exposed to the Apple rather than the IBM logo, to the power of nominative determinism in charity ( more people whose name began with K donated money to Hurricane Katrina than any other letter) this is a thought provoking read.

4. Buy a new piece of jewellery to start the new season, from  MYFLASHTRASH.COM!

Not having time to catch any London Collections Men’s shows during the day sure as hell is not stopping me fawning over the images online in bed at 10 o’ clock at night. From Hardy Amies pristine dandy charmers in all their man-bag clad brilliance to, Katie Eary’s mad, bad and totally rad flamingo massacre, so far the British menswear scene is looking truly exceptional.


1) Katie Eary’s rad, bright red, cammo print bikinis

2) The bad ass knee length skater skirts and sunglasses at Hunter Gather


3) These pretty floral espadrilles from Richard James are TOO MUCH. #Pastel #Floral #Delight YES.


4) This insanely delicious coral, metallic and grey colour palette is IDEAL. And the slouchy almost trackisuit trousers? Genius. – Richard Nicholl


5) These galactic Picasso prints by talented Chinese designer Kay Kwok look yummier than a carmel topped ice cream sunday.
