We Day Celebration: Best Dressed Celebs

We Day is an annual event to encourage more people to volunteer for local communities, with the goal to make people shift from a ‘me’ mentality to a ‘we’ mentality. And a great way to draw attention to the cause was to have a gig at Wembley Arena – there’s a reason why the word ‘fun’ is in fundraising!

With performances from Jessie J and Fleur East, a motivational speech from Kate Winslet and some super cool hosts in radio presenters Yasmin Evans and Becca D, the event was truly inspirational. Everyone dressed up for the occasion to show they cared about the cause. Let’s have a closer look at how they all did this:

Jessie J

Jessie has kept a low profile for a while but made a glamorous entrance back onto the scene with beautiful bootcut trousers and a crop top. Jessie’s always had great abs so she shows them off as she knows people are envious of them. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

Becca D

She’s a host on Hoxton radio, but she’s destined for TV and she’s so fun and has a fabulous sense of style. She turned heads all night long in her printed jumpsuit but she made sure she was able to run around the stage by wearing flat ankle boots. Clever!

Fleur East

Fleur dressed conservatively as she arrived at the event in a white shirt dress – she was dressing as if she meant business. The red heels and the red lipstick keep the look young and fresh – this could be a lovely outfit for the office as it’s smart but it shows the wearer’s personality.

Kate Winslet

Kate dressed to match the theme of the night in a comfortable grey t-shirt. This shows she’s confident enough to get on stage and be recognised for what she’s talking about rather than what she’s wearing. She’s actually really humorous!

Paula Abdul

The singer, songwriter and talent show judge looked ready for spring in a floral playsuit. The colours are bright and pretty and the cold shoulder detail is on trend this season. What do you think?

Radio 1Xtra’s Yasmin Evans

Yasmin looked like she was ready for a film premiere in a striking dark yellow jumpsuit. The yellow makes it eye-catching but the stripes give it a smart but edgy look so it doesn’t look as if you’re trying to hard. She knows her own sense of style just as much as she knows her music.

Six Inspiring Celebrity Yummy Mummies

Mother’s Day is very much a family day as most mums value time with their kids more than any gifts or presents. For the stars it’s the same as they’re often on film sets or on a music promotional tour and don’t always get to spend as much time with their offspring as they’d like. When they do have down time, they dress fashionably but practically so they can actually do things with their families.

Therefore, in honour of Mother’s Day, let’s take a look at six of the most stylish yummy celeb mummies. They’re fantastic inspiration for what to wear on family occasions when you’re doing activities but you want to look as glam as you can.

Kate Hudson

Sporty mummy Kate looked ready for spring in pastel blue linen trousers with a neutral beige top. The trousers are loose fitting and comfortable to keep you cool no matter how much you have to run around and you could dress these up for night by wearing with sandals instead of flats and changing into more of a party top. This look is effortless glamour!

Beyonce

Soon to be a mum of three, Beyonce has stuck to her style throughout motherhood and always looks fabulous. Skinny jeans and a white shirt may be a classic choice for a family day out but Beyonce gives her outfit more attitude with her black ankle boots, round sunglasses and statement jewellery. Sometimes it’s all about the accessories…

Kim Kardashian

This is one of Kim’s more practical outfits, which she wore for a day of fashion shows in New York. A shirt dress is easy to wear and is also very flattering as they feature a belt which highlights a slim waist and shows off your curves. A shirt dress with ankle boots is comfortable without being dowdy and wearing something like this will give you confidence that you look amazing, even when you’re doing something really normal.

Mila Kunis

Mum-of-two Mila shows how a black maxi dress can be a flattering choice of day-wear. She doesn’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions, the fabric feels loose and light next to her skin and she can accessorise it to dress it up more if needs be. What do you think?

Jessica Alba

If you’re planning a family lunch or afternoon tea on Mother’s Day, Jessica showed off the ideal outfit on the Jimmy Kimmel TV show. This outfit is sophisticated and elegant but still shows you have a personality. A pencil skirt gives you a gorgeous hourglass shape and when you have a gorgeous bottle green colour like this, all you need is a black top.

Jennifer Lopez

JLo has twins and yet she still looks young and fresh. Light blue skinny jeans are ideal for spring and she keeps things bright and breezy with a white blouse and a white blazer. The red boots add a diva vibe!

TV And Radio Stars Wow at The TRIC Awards

TRIC stands for TV and Radio Industries Club and the annual awards ceremony is a big deal as the stars vote for their peers. To know that other people in the same industry think you are doing a great job is a huge honour!

The awards ceremony may take place during the day in London’s five-star Grosvenor House Hotel, but the dress code is more suited to night-time glamour. It’s less formal than the BAFTAs or the Oscars, but there are a lot of pretty party dresses, which is more practical for the rest of us to copy as there are a lot more occasions to wear party clothes than there are formal maxi dresses.

Soap stars, TV presenters and reality TV contestants all showed up to the awards do so there was plenty of glamour and inspiration. Let’s have a closer look at who wore what before moving onto who won what:

Holly Willoughby

Holly won three awards – TV personality, one for This Morning and one for Celebrity Juice – and looked gorgeous as she collected them in a monochrome prom dress with a full skirt. It’s very flattering as it showcased her small waist before flowing out to show off her curves. It’s not a complicated dress in terms of embellishment but it’s a fabulous fit and shape.

Vicky Pattinson

Vicky went for a 1920s style vintage beige maxi dress and looked girly and elegant. The cream colour complemented her tan while the colour detail lifted the look and made it more cheerful. She looked like an old-fashioned Hollywood movie starlet rather than someone who used to be on Geordie Shore, she’s doing well!

Kym Marsh

The Coronation Street star may have lost out to Eastenders but she had a winning outfit on with her white midi dress and pretty beige court shoes. If you have legs likes hers, you just have to get them out don’t you? Also, as we are starting to see more sunny weather and spring is coming, now is the time to wear white.

Ferne McCann

Ferne’s been popping up on several TV shows since her successful stint in the I’m A Celeb jungle so she’s feeling confident. You can tell this by what she’s wearing as a dress with fringe detail is a brave choice. She totally pulls it off as she walks with attitude. The strappy black heeled sandals finish off the look perfectly, giving her extra height and more reason to feel fabulous when she walks into the room.

Megan McKenna

She knew that she was going to be in the same building as her ex Pete Wicks, so Megan had to look (and act) strong. If you feel the part, you can be braver and walk around with more attitude. Megan did just that in a black suit with black heeled sandals. What do you think?

Faye Brookes

The Coronation Street actress turned heads in a floral multi-colour maxi dress. It’s floaty, feminine and full of the joys of spring. If you want to get attention without flashing too much flesh, this is a classy way to do it.

Emma Bunton

Emma looked bold and beautiful in a multi-coloured jumpsuit and she must be doing something right as she won two awards – best radio presenter and one for her role on the Heart Breakfast Show. She’s no longer just a former Spice Girl as she’s proved to herself and her peers and colleagues that she has talent on the radio. That’s true girl power!

Things to Do With the Kids This Half Term

Can you believe it, Half Term already! The year is going so fast and so if you’re thinking, it feels like you’ve blinked and the kids are off school and you have absolutely no idea what you’re going to do to entertain them, then fear not.

We have a list of great ideas to keep the kids occupied over the Half Term break. Variety is the key, as everyone knows kids get bored easily – and keeping their little minds and bodies active too.

Have your Own Bake-Off Challenge

Mandatory Credit: Photo by Monkey Business Images/REX/Shutterstock

Everyone loves Great British Bake Off – especially kids. The best thing about it is that you can watch it all as a family, and so many kids want to get into the kitchen as a result and make their own creations!

If it’s an especially rainy afternoon, baking is a Godsend. It doesn’t matter whether you have just the one little baker – or a group of them (although this can add a competitive edge to see who is crowned Master Baker!)

Just give them a theme, such as a film or book, or the ‘Showstopper Challenge’! All you need to supervise is the blender and some baking equipment, let them get creative and then you can enjoy the tasty treats afterwards.

Story (or Quiet!) Time

Another good idea for a rainy day is to get them to create a play of their favourite story. They can use fancy dress, make props, do a puppet show or even perform songs. But it should take up enough time for you to make a cuppa and have a biscuit – while waiting for them to perfect their show and ‘entertain’ you!

Afterwards, hopefully they might be a bit tired out from all the acting and singing, so you can get them to pick a favourite book and have some ‘quiet’ time reading, and cuddling on the sofa.

To make sure they get a bit of exercise as well during the break, why not set up a mini Sports Day? Whether it’s just lying a few hula hoops on the floor for them to jump into (landing outside results in lost points!), skipping for a set number of skips, or even doing an egg and spoon race (with little bean bags or balls).

There are lots of cheap outdoor toys too if the weather’s good, such as footballs goals to see how many they can score, swingball and tents where they can have a picnic/ adventure!

Days out

As a treat on one of the days, if you’re climbing the walls by then, there are some great days out there that don’t cost the earth. Obviously there’s always the usual museums, art galleries and local parks to be explored, but if you’re looking for something different, Virgin Experiences offer a range of activities.

From swinging around forests, to bouncing on giant trampoline nets in a cave – and wandering around London on the Harry Potter bus tour.

Mummy Blogger Tips for Half Term:

We asked one of our favourite mummy bloggers, Amy Treasure from www.amytreasure.com, what she does with her kids at Half Term:

  1. You definitely need a plan in the half term! I would recommend reading local blogs for ideas on what to do. Quite often there will be suggestions depending on good or bad weather so you have your bases covered. I also check the local library noticeboard as they always put on activities for the kids during school holidays.
  2. We really enjoy baking together as a family, Holly (16) is at an age where she can happily supervise Rose (3) in the kitchen and they have lots of fun baking cupcakes and decorating them.
  3. All three children enjoy being outdoors and we’ve always encouraged them to come with us on long walks in the woods behind our house, we’re really lucky that we have so much green space for them to kick a ball about and run off steam. Quite often we’ll pop across the Severn Bridge to Wales and go to the beach. We also make good use of our National Trust membership and do lots of days out visiting places of interest.
  4. My favourite Half Term memory has to be when we stayed in Tenby, Pembrokeshire. It was February half-term so pretty cold but we managed to do a boat trip out to Caldey Island and saw seals and puffins. The older kids even went boogie boarding in the sea! There’s lots of places to stop for a piece of cake and a cup of tea and you can’t beat fish and chips on the beach. Just thinking about that holiday brings back so many happy memories for me
