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…

That Friday Feeling!!!

It’s Friday, It’s Friday, It’s Friday! It’s Friday!! IT”S FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry was that a little over the top? I am just experiencing a heavy dose of that Friday feeling today, it seems as if it has taken forever to come around and with all my dramas I am glad to be saying goodbye to this working week that’s for sure… I’m also excited because I have another weekend out of London planned, with another of my crazy Scottish friends… add to that already lethal mix the bottle of posh plonk my boss kindly gifted me with, some Thorntons mini chocolate…

Topsy Turvy Thursday…

Its been a funny old week this week… this morning I woke with a renewed optimism… it was Thursday after all and ever closer to the weekend so I had to feel good about that! Then I arrived in work only to find a bottle of champagne sitting pretty on my desk!… before you say it – no, unfortunately it was not a valentines gift from ginger boy sent all the way from oz… no in fact it was a gift from my boss after I secured a two page spread in this weekend’s FT… boo ya!! I guess my…

Wine head on a Wed Morning? No No No…

The problem with going out drinking mid week is that you wake up the next morning inevitably feeling like it should be the weekend, convinced that after your one too many glasses of wine the night before you are due a long lie and day of self pity. It is one thing to wake up and realise that it’s actually only a Friday and you have to go to work… but it is quite another completely to wake up and realise it’s only a bloody Wednesday and there are still 3 full working days ahead before the weekend! This was…

Fragile person aboard…Please be kind

Oh Tuesday… cmon now you were supposed to be kind to me…

Granted this morning was spent mostly updating twitter and facebook and I was happy to be back in my reclining chair… not having to spend my time touring about the west end again!

I also found it hard not to bring a smile to my face with the news that Dannii Minogue is to front the new M&S campaign along with Twiggy and Lisa Snowdon… I am a bit of a fan of the Minogue family, I mean Kylie doesn’t require any introduction… any woman over 35…

Back Track Slightly…

Oh my! With all my bitching about Monday, I forgot to tell you about those two days that precede Monday, in which we are freely allowed to do whatever the hell we please…

So I was sans tinterweb all weekend, hence the 2 posts today… I was out of London for the duration staying with a friend and apparently not everyone blogs, tweets and facebooks all day everyday? Hmm well I work in the media industry right so it’s kind of allowed… I think??

Anyway one of the good things about ginger boy being away for 3 weeks is that…

Monday Blues…

Another weekend a distant memory… another Monday morning to contend with… arrg! why are Monday’s so damn depressing just by default? sometimes I feel rather sorry for Monday… nobody likes a Monday… Fridays? oh they have plenty of friends but mondays? nada!

Well Monday I’d just like to point out that you might make a friend in me if you stopped being such a droal and depressing day, if you stopped ruining my Sunday evening by making me think of you, if you didn’t purposely drag on and seem longer than Friday, Saturday and Sunday put together and well basically…

Valentines Part 2… Ruining his Reputation

Bumpkin Betty is without a Valentine… again

You may remember me posting a few days ago about my recent change of heart (excuse the pun) when it came to Valentines this month… for once I was actually excited due to the fact that this year I have crossed over to the dark side and become one half of a couple…

Well it seems my excitement was a little pre – mature… oh no don’t worry he (for the purpose of this blog I will refer to him only as ginger boy) hasn’t dumped me, well not yet…

Girl Crushes and Design Dilemma’s

So with yesterday’s announcement that Emma Watson is to design for People Tree and today’s confirmation that Alexa Chung is creating a range for Wellmade… I got to thinking about this recent trend for Celebrity ‘Designers’…

Personally I think it’s rather cheeky when celebs take the label ‘Fashion Icon’ and run with it when the reality is they have an army of stylists taking charge of their every move AND they get given freebies left, right and centre from all the best design houses. It doesn’t require much fashion knowledge or flair to put on a Chanel…
