Even on a Skinny Day…

So Friday was just a teeny bit exciting for me… as a scottish country bumpkin I still get ridiculously star struck and giddy at the thought of seeing/ stalking/ talking to anyone who is more famous than Carol Smilie (who I once saw at Glasgow Airport) So when I heard that a famous model was going to stop by the office to meet me and pick up some product from one of our brands, I was more nervous about what the hell I was going to converse about with her than I was when I sat my driving test for…

Lazy…. Oooohf!

This week may have begun rather dull in work… reports, PR plans, meetings cancelled… hence my lack of posting – I don’t like to bore you with the menial stuff, I prefer to bore you with the exciting stuff…

But by Wednesday the week was looking like it might significantly improve with the talk of a certain celebrity model wanting to swing by and meet us all… har har exciting but I’ll tell you all about that later today… nervously waiting for her to arrive at the moment…
But first…

Sympathy Lag…

I’m very tired today and have decided that it can only mean one thing… I am having sympathy pains for ginger boy and experiencing his jet lag through my considerate girlfriend form… God I am good to him!

Yes that’s right, he is finally back in the UK and I’m very happy to say that everything is right with the world again… my oh my what has happened to me? What I mean to say is that he brought gifts… so I’m temporarily in a good mood with him! (he may be reading this and can’t have him getting…

Champagne Thursday’s!!

It’s becoming a bit of a recurring theme for me to have a bottle of champagne sitting on my desk on a Thursday afternoon… today it was the good stuff!!

The EXCITING news, which was worthy of the champagne and mini eggs, was that little old country Bumpkin Betty only went and bloody secured a spanking new brand for my company today!!!! Get me?… you may remember me harping on about something exciting in the pipeline after my trip to Pure? well after my excellent scouting, networking, correspondence, meetings, proposal writing and general persuasion, I, that’s right me, all through…

Oh! You Pretty Thing!

What I love most about fashion week, apart from the parties and drinking and schmoozing, is all the fun, unique little things that seem to pop up all over the city around the same time… if you look hard you will find an abundance of fun little ventures which are tying their events/ presentations/ exhibitions in with the buzz and hype surrounding the week. With so much going on in one 7day period, your mind very quickly becomes over saturated with all the prettiness, so I find that often the slightly underground, off the radar things…

BB’s First Show!

On the PR side of things, we don’t tend to get quite as much of the perks that are offered to the journos… we don’t get press discount cards for all our favourite shops, we don’t get free samples or luxury gifts from hot brands, we don’t get taken out to trendy restaurants for lunch to discuss a new product… and unless it’s through blagging, we don’t usually get invited to any of the fashion week shows…

BUT I am no longer only on the PR side of things, I am now moonlighting as a journalist,…

Rain Rain Go Away…

Well I can’t actually believe that I have reduced myself to posting about the weather, and believe me it is certainly not because I do not have anything else interesting to tell you (I most certainly do – check back tomorrow!) but it is simply because I have become so aggravated with what seems like the longest winter in history that I really have to vent…

I am bored… incredibly bored with rain, wind, cold, a bit of snow, more freezing cold and yet more rain… When will it end?? Spring/ Summer product is now in the shops, summer sandals…

My Girl Likes to Party All the Time, Party All the Time, Party All the Tiiiime…

So like I said… so much has been going on that I’m having to split it into manageable bitesize posts… and while the press days went extremely well, (I seem to be getting just a teeny tad good at my job of late – if I do say so myself) and I found and brought to the table a super cute brand, had an excellent meeting with them and it’s looking like it might be going ahead (last comment reiterated) I thought what you would really be interested in hearing about was the after office hours gossip… the parties! Well…

LFW is here… but what to wear??

Hello hello… sorry it’s been a while, but since my last post on Wednesday life suddenly got a bit crazy…. LFW has officially begun and I have had a busy 2 days of hosting an AW10 showcase for the menswear brand I look after, appointments galore with journos and stylists, parties to hit, an incredibly stressful Friday and now… hungover at work on a Saturday! Sometimes I wonder why I do it?

Anyhoo I have so much to fill you in on I may have to split it into several posts… I have now attended two very different LFW parties,…

Anon… but for how long?

This week Liberty London Girl, the anonymous fashion blogger who has pretty much paved the way for all anonymous fashion bloggers, revealed herself through a three page spread in Grazia and an unveiling on her newly updated website. It was all anyone was tweeting about yesterday and I’ll admit that I could hardly contain myself while waiting for a copy to arrive on my desk…

For all of us fashion ‘insiders’ trying to make our way in this fickle industry and use our blog as a both a writing platform and a…

Networking… such a Dirty Word!

Yesterday… after a power cut at work which showed no signs of dissipating pretty much ruled me completely defunct – no computer, no emails, no phone calls (someone buy me an iphone already…) and my assistant looked a little too happy at the prospect of being sent home at 2pm… I whipped her and her DM’s off with me to Pure London for the afternoon!

Originally penciled in my diary as a Tuesday ‘let’s waste my day galavanting around a trade show to avoid actual work’ activity, I was a little disappointed to only be going for the…

What is a Girl To Do?

I know the term ‘shopaholic’ is overused these days – it’s become such a trendy buzzword for alerting people to your love of clothes that it’s almost unfashionable to call yourself one now… But I actually am a shopaholic… and I don’t just mean in the sense that I love spending my days looking at pretty clothes and shoes, I mean that I have a serious problem when it comes to spending money that I definitely DO NOT have on material goods that I simply HAVE TO have… you know that film ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’? The first time I…
