Davinia Taylor

Actress turned Sunday Times best selling author Davinia Taylor enjoyed an afternoon in Liverpool on Friday to celebrate the success of her top selling book ‘It’s Not a Diet’. Over 80 people attended a book launch event at The Watering Can, Greenbank Park, where Davinia chronicled her journey from being overweight, depressed and unmotivated to forming healthier habits. Davinia opened up about her journey from her wild days in London as part of the Primrose Hill set, to the content wife and mother of four. 

A sumptuous lunch was followed by a wellness talk from Davinia who also answered guests’ questions, before DJ Dave Seed rounded the afternoon off with a fantastic set of dancefloor filling classics.

The event, organised by Carolyn Hughes PR, in association with legal firm Astraea Linskills and The Watering Can, also raised over £1,000 for Love Wavertree’s Food Club. Carolyn Hughes said: “It was one of the most fun and informative events I have had the privilege of being involved with. Davinia is an inspirational, knowledgeable speaker with a wicked sense of humour and an honesty that is truly humbling. She is hugely well respected in the world of wellness and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her.”

Davinia said: “I have loved every second of today, meeting up with mates and (have) had a great time. A fantastic lunch with wonderful people – It is great to be back up north!”

Davinia’s friends Cassie Lomas (celebrity make-up artist), Coleen Rooney and Lorraine McCulloch (celebrity stylist) were also there to support the event, with Coleen posting on her Instagram page: “Loved seeing these beautiful ladies to celebrate Davinia Taylor’s new book”.

While fashion brand Lavish Alice owners Lee Bloor and Matt Newton were delighted Davinia chose one of their outfits for the occasion.
