Jamaican beach dream...
Can you believe we are into summer already? No, me neither! 2018 is flying by and it’s scary because we start to wonder where time has gone, but then again, time goes by when you are having fun, they say!
The last month has been filled with so much adventure and I was really lucky to visit two of my dream destinations.
I went to Jamaica with my mum and my daughter and stayed at the stunning Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay. It was lovely to spend quality family time together.
Some parts of the world are simply beautiful and we particularly enjoyed our days spent on the beautiful Flamingo beach with its white sand and crystal clear blue water.
Pearl, my little princess, loves the beach so much. While I was lying beside her daydreaming, I thought that maybe one day I would like to open an ice cream shop somewhere far away, maybe in the Caribbean.

I sat under my umbrella watching Pearl play on the sand and some days I treated myself to a glass (maybe two, I lost count!) of Prosecco. It’s definitely the Cheshire way to lunch after all!
Living life in the fast lane…
I had the best time filming for RHOC in Morocco where I stayed at the stunning Sofitel Marrakech. I was thrilled to be a bridesmaid at Seema Malhotra’s wedding ceremony, where she renewed her vows with her husband Sandeep. It was so nice to be around all my favourite faces and we all had an amazing time in an amazing place. We fight, we shout but at the end of it all, us Housewives simply cannot live without each other!
Everyone knows I have a huge love for fast cars and I got my ‘fast and furious’ fix while in Marrakech by going quad biking. Driving through the desert, hair blowing wildly behind me, I felt truly alive! Life is for making memories that we will never forget.
Invest in your hair!
It is the crown you never take off! All the sea salt and heat really took its toll on my hair during my holidays. As every woman knows, maintaining your locks while abroad is never an easy task, especially if you wear hair extensions that require a lot of extra attention.
Luckily, I had remembered to pack my Rapture hair products, which saved the day! The luxurious cream leaves my hair super soft and silky and when my hair needs that extra boost of moisture, I leave it on a little bit longer.
ALL THAT WE HAVE IS NOW...
While having all that free time to ponder, I realised that the saying that all we have is now is very true. We really must learn to live for the moment. I feel so lucky that I am devoting more of my time and energy to my spiritual pursuits and exploring my purpose in life.
Thank you to RHOC, my fellow girls and my fans for all the love and support. I couldn’t do this without you!
