Guest Blog by Yasmin Mills: My scrumptious Stuart’s dinner for De Roemer

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2013 by deroemer

As the winter nights are gradually approaching I decided it was time to make use of my small outside space before it becomes too chilly.

Stuart’s transformed the small deck outside my house into a stunning dinning area complete with gorgeous autumnal floral displays and twinkling lanterns.

The bespoke canopy, created by 10 x 15 Tent Co to shield the setting from any downpours, made the whole area cosy and created an inside out space that flowed into the house. This left plenty of space for people to mingle in my humbly sized living room!

I have been to many lavish parities beautifully created and catered by Stuart’s in Sussex over the years but on this occasion they proved that they can make a small urban space work just as well as a sprawling house with acres of land on which to build a marquee!

My lovely guests such as De Roemer director Justin Packshaw, Melissa Odabash, Lauren Kemp, Amanda Wakeley and David Thomas chose from an array of mouthwatering dishes such as minted halloumi, chestnut mushroom & bell pepper kebabs, saffron spiced lamb skewers with mint and cumin yoghurt and a three beetroot salad with creamy bur rata, sherry vinegar, mint & basil. Add some gorgeous fine wines from the Bordeaux Index and the aroma from the sizzling barbecue that filled the air, making my neighbours hungry and the scene was set.

The elegant and delicious dinner created by Stuarts complimented the very desirable De Roemer sumptuous cashmere and stunning unique jewellery perfectly. I was flying the flag, of course, wearing my favourite De Roemer gold flecked cream cashmere jumper.

I love putting friends together. So it was a joy to spend the rest of the evening introducing people to each other who I was sure had plenty in common. Charming Italian Manuele Malenotti who owns motorbike fashion brand Matchless was enwrapped by modern day Indiana Jones Justin’s upcoming adventures. While photographer Kate Martin fell in love with the cashmere offering to shoot the next De Roemer campaign/brochure with my daughter Lauren modelling and me discussing organising an event for Amanda Wakeley…Nothing like keeping it in the family!

All went home happy with a parting gift of a beautiful De Roemer bracelet and a generous gift voucher for any of the boys who don’t do jewellery.

Cannes Film Festival

Cannes 4 2013

The HP Influencers Advisers Board

What a blast Cannes was this year! I feel incredibly privileged to be part of HP’s Influencers Advisors Board which has met at the Film Festival for the last two years for four days of brainstorming, tech smoozing, red carpeting and generally being spoiled by the giant that is HP.

HP are one of the principle sponsors of the whole event so we get to have a very lucky insight into it all. All the glitz is great fun and we managed to see the showing of La Vie D’Adele, which went on to win the Palme d’Or – a truly extraordinary film for no other reason than the sublime and brave acting from the two leads which is quite breath-taking.

However for me, the icing on the cake, is hanging out, listening and learning from the other Board members, all of whom bring an amazing spin and insight to the technological table. What a bright, colourful and impressive lot they are.

Thank you to the gorgeous Melissa O’Malley for pulling it all together, to Page, Randall, Irv, Jean-Pierre for opening our eyes as to where this technological revolution is taking us and to the rest of the HP team for helping to make it an inspirational few days. Thanks also to the lovely Yasmin Mills for including me in more of the glamorous Film Festival craziness.

Watch this space as De Roemer is about to do something incredibly exciting with HP …….

We had a very civilised party which we co-hosted with Yasmin Mills, girl about town and all round beauty!  She came along with her gorgeous girls, Maddy and Laurie plus a number of their pretty girl friends.  Beautiful people came and went throughout the evening along with a few of our very own fabulous and extraordinarily beautiful friends.  We took a few pictures but not too many!!
