I am back at The Ideal Home Show this month (November.) In Manchester on the13th and 14th and at London Olympia on the 25th and 28th presenting a show called ‘Confidence at Christmas.’ During the show, I will pick two members of the audience who are looking for the perfect Christmas party outfit and my ‘glam squad’ will make them over backstage during the show. While this is going on I will give tips and hints on how to be confident at Christmas…. after we all like a bit of glamour at Christmas! I will be supported by a fabulous group of volunteers from The Katis Piper Foundation so please come and visit us!
I am also an ambassador for Remescar who will be sponsoring my talk at the show. I was recommended Remescar after surgery and found it extremely effective. It is a silicone treatment that helps with old and new scars, stretchmarks and spider veins .This revolutionary treatment is available without prescription and I found it supported the healing process of my scars, including stretch marks post pregnancy. It is available at Boots, meaning it’s accessible to everyone, I wouldn’t be without Remescar… it’s a handbag must have for me. It’s my little SOS stick of confidence.

Well the biggest news this month is that on the 6th November 2015 I got married! Despite some earlier health problems and after months of stress and preparation we finally managed to tie the knot and we had a wonderful day surrounded by family and friends. I was thrilled with my wedding dress which all started with simple sketch that my favourite designers Kolchagovbarba created after I told them how I dreamed of looking on my big day. It was such a happy day and quite emotional at times and I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me to be Richard’s wife. I feel happy, safe, secure and loved, and of course we have our daughter Belle to complete our happiness.

I am so pleased with this news from my charity, the Katie Piper Foundation. We have gone into partnership with SAGE publications to produce a journal supporting the expansion and development of scars and burns research.
Here is a quote from the director of fundraisng Carol Borwick….”The launch of Scars, Burns & Healing is an exciting new initiative for The Katie Piper Foundation. The Foundation aims to deliver a gold standard of rehabilitation and scar management for burn survivors and this academic journal will ultimately help burn survivors achieve a significantly improved recovery in the long term. We are delighted to be publishing with SAGE, a publisher who is expertly placed to produce high-quality content to greatly enhance this vital field of research.”
I was able to take a short break last week so we took Belle to visit friends in Spain. Belle loves swimming, she has been having lessons regularly at home so it was great to spend some time with her in the pool….she’s a real water baby!!
I am very excited to tell you about a programme I am working on at the moment…..it is all about unusual,and sometimes unconventional ways of giving birth. Having had a straight forward C section when I gave birth to Belle I was intrigued to hear about other womens’ birth plans. It should be an interesting programme!
I’m delighted to tell you that I have been made ambassador for Remescar. This is a cream I use on my scars and it really helps to soften and smooth out my skin. I wear it under my makeup and it is a vital part of my daily routine. Remember my mantra….”Try to be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be!” and this cream definitely helps me to do that!
On Sunday 18th October I will be talking at “Stylist Live” at the Business Design Centre London.
“Stylist Live is a four-day festival of culture, catwalks, cocktails and conversation hosted by Edith Bowman and Dawn O’Porter.

Stylist Life Lesson: “Things Get Better” by Katie Piper
The incredibly inspirational Katie Piper takes to the stage to share the most important life lesson she wants other women to know, followed by a Q&A with the audience. In 2008, a brutal rape and acid attack organised by an ex-boyfriend left the then-24-year-old facially disfigured. Over 200 operations later, she has rebuilt her confidence and is now a best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, charity campaigner and TV presenter.
I was so excited to asked to present an award at the 2015 Baftas. Back in 2010 I had been in the audience when Jessie Versluys won The Break-Through Talent Award for producing and directing my documentary “My Beautiful Face.” That was an exciting time but fast forward 5 years and here I was about to present a Bafta! It was an honour to see so many talented people being recognised for their work and I was proud (and a little nervous!) to be part of it. I wore a lacy dress by Kolchagov Barba.
