Crazy About Pippa

Pippa+Middleton+Royal+Wedding+Arrivals+g9V5VYZzrP4xPippa Middleton burst onto the scene as she stepped out of the car on April 29, 2011. She was the maid of honor for her sister Kate Middleton. The media and the public was instantly interested in her. Her good looks, her style, her fit body, everything. People wanted to know all about her. She became an instant international style icon.


She comes from an incredibly close, happy family. Her and Kate were close an age and did many of the same activities. Pippa was the more outgoing sister as Kate was more shy.


It is amazing how well behaved the Middleton children have been their entire lives. In this day and age of the internet and high scrutiny that the media hasn’t been able to dig up any dirt on them, is quite impressive. The only thing they have been able to find is one or two pictures of Pippa and James scantily clad dancing.

While in college Pippa mixed and mingled with the upper crust students who came from money and castles. Carol Middleton, her mother, didn’t come from money but through hard work and ambition started a company that is now worth millions.

At the time of this special, Pippa had not spoken to the public. People had never heard her talk. And that was probably part of the allure and mystery that was intentional. Yet people were still so taken by her.

After college Pippa moved to London and became one of the most sought after invitees to all high society parties. She is a fun loving girl and is known to be the life of the party. She went to work at her parent’s company Party Pieces.

The day of the wedding people were looking at Pippa as much as they were looking at Kate. She immediately got offers from all over the world, companies wanting her to be the face of her brand.  She now has the world at her feet and the opportunities are endless.

I am under her spell along with the rest of the world. I have done a style post on her, I’ve read her book, Celebrate. I can’t get enough of her. I’m very looking forward to seeing what she does next, especially who she will marry.


Celebrate by Pippa Middleton


It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan on the royal family (and all things British, hello British accents!). So of course I had to read Celebrate by Pippa Middleton. She is the infamously gorgeous sister of Kate Middleton. The book is a party planning guide for all 4 seasons. And while some critics have been a little harsh in their reviews, saying that the tips are too simplistic, Pippa says that she wanted it to stand the test of time and for it to easy for everyone to follow and do.

“Celebrate, my book on entertaining, has been a labour of love. I have put my heart and soul into it, obsessing over every detail. I could have written a book that showcased the most extravagant or elaborate of occasions – after all, I spent three years working for an events company planning parties – but I wanted to produce something that was achievable; something that people would have on their shelves for years; something that was not too fussy – just simple and comforting”

The pictures in the book are fantastic! (These are a few of the photos from the book) I loved seeing Pippa in different settings and to see her different outfits. She is truly stunning. The book offers recipes, games, craft ideas, decorations and lots of pictures. It’s a fun read and makes me want to perfect my party planning skills.




Next week I will have read and reviewed “A Love That Multiplies” from super sized family the Duggars.
