The Heelathon…

So if you read my last post, you will know that I am digging deep into the neverending shoe closet this week and attempting to wear some of the unloved high heeled numbers that have been gathering dust back there… before my guilt forces me to sell them on Ebay! Anyway one day in and my heelathon has been somewhat thwarted… here is how events have played out so far…

Heelathon Day 1: BB started well… pair of french esque suede lace up wedges were teamed with cute lampshade skirt and stripy cropped sweater… channelling Parisian Chic (Ok I know…

Dressing for the Job…

When I first decided to make the move to London I visualised my life becoming somewhat like Sex and City, flitting around the hippest places in enviable outfits and fantastic shoes just like my ultimate style icon Carrie Bradshaw (I know she is not real and it’s a horrible cliche but I don’t care, Patricia Field is a genius, I can watch episodes that are 10years old and still covet Carrie’s style)… so due to this misconception I arrived on my brothers doorstep one sunny day in June with a larger than life suitcase which was filled to the brim…

Curiouser and Curiouser

Ok ok I know… I am ridiculously late with my Alice in Wonderland themed blog post and you have now read so many other boring ‘Alice inspired fashion picks’ or ‘my favourite Wonderland esque products’ and have seen all there is to see of heart print dresses and charm bracelets that you may well want to scream at the blogging world and never read this blog again at the thought of another image of a ‘drink me’ necklace or Blair Waldorf in an alice band…

BUT… last night, ginger boy and I…

Its me Burfday!!

Happy Birthday to me!!

So here it is, the day of reckoning… I am 24 no more! New Era, new tickbox, the time has come… I am now old…….. er… haha!
Well as predicted I feel more or less the same as I did yesterday… apart from the fact that I decided it was time for a style change (in a mid life crisis kind of way) and last night dyed my hair bright, florence and the machine style, red! It was a bit of a shocker to begin with… as me worrying that my dark brown mane…

A New Era…

In three days time I shall be turning the big 2-5! Scary huh?

Well actually no, I was rather looking forward to being 25, it’s surely better that 24 right? I mean it’s more of a milestone… I will officially be in the middle of my twenties… it’s a peak age for being able to say ‘ooh I did that when I was 25’ which I think sounds much better than ‘ooh I did that when I was 24’… The world is my oyster as they say!
But do you know the one thing that changed…

Hormones, Alcohol and a Scabby Knee

This weekend I came to the conclusion that when feeling hormonal, it is simply well advised to stay away from all shades of alcohol… Actually sorry I shouldn’t assume that everyone else is as much of a psycho/ weirdo/ maniac when the hormone rollercoaster hits as I am… I came to the conclusion that I should stay away from all shades of alcohol when hormonal… the problem however is that I seem to be hormonal every minute of every hour of every day of the fecking month at the moment, and I’m sorry, it may be the Scottish gene in…

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,…
