Imagine Spa at Hilton Terminal 5 hotel party with Cyrus Todiwala, TOWIE girls, Josie Gibson and too many shots

Nothing beats a good party, and last night I was lucky enough to muscle in on a bash to mark the opening of a lush new Imagine Spa at the equally plush Hilton Terminal 5 hotel. Well-known faces in attendence included Laurens Pope and Goodger (those poor TOWIE girls must think I’m stalking them – but I can report that I saw Popey in the spa and she looks better without make-up – FACT), Michelle Heaton, Nicola McLean, Vanessa Feltz (in her flip flops) and Josie Gibson, who looked absolutely stonking in a red maxi dress by Pia Michi.

The evening included a tour of the beautiful spa (and let me tell you, the top notch facial I had there this morning totes sorted my hangover out) and delicious eats by Cyrus Todiwala, best known for his Café Spice Namasté restaurant, who was on hand to show us around Mr. Todiwala’s Kitchen. Seriously, his food = heaven.

As promised, I was showing off the wonderful “flame” blouse by Fleur B, which I am now deeply in love with, teamed with sequin trousers that were a talking point (good job I found them at the bottom of my strides drawer). After stuffing our faces with Todiwala’s Ruby, the evening descended into an orgy of celebridee stalking, shot drinking and talking absolute bollocks to beauty blogger ReallyRee (apols for that, my dear!)

Here’s how our night panned out in glorious technicolour…

Spot the elephant: Here’s me posing (natch) in Mr. Todiwala’s kitchen
Only my manners prevented me from trying every single one of the delights on offer (I spy Vanessa Feltz and neither Phats nor Small chowing down in the background)
That is what I call a canape
Getting stuck in
After all that curry, I needed a little sit down in the sexy reception at Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen (the shoes were v popular & are old Faithfuls – from, erm, Faith)
Outfit of the night went to Big Brother winner Josie Gibson in a striking maxi by Pia Michi (although we both kept accidently calling it Pikachu…)
Nicola McLean was a good sport
You know it’s getting serious when you start ordering rounds of B52s
I can still (literally) taste it
Ahhh, here’s the gang. We’ve known each other, ooh, all of 45 minutes at this point.
The hair is attacked!
4am, posh hotel room, sparkly pants (past season, JOY) and a guitar; a match made in ‘ell
Fast forward about two hours and we were bang on for a fry up in the Hotel’s gallery restaurant before a fabulous few hours restoring ourselves in the Imagine Spa – if you’re ever bound for Heathrow it’s the perfect pre or post flight treat
Great British decor in the restaurant
We finally dragged ourselves away at about 4pm after yummy burgers in the Gallery restaurant – talk about a treat night/day for parent folks like us
I so got cheapies over the low-flying planes – and I promise you cannot hear a thing inside the five star hotel.
