November has zipped by in a blur for me! Although it is my birthday month, it always surprises me, and I can’t even begin to think about Christmas until the opening of advent calendars in December! I’ve even held back from watching all the campaigns apart from the Wes Anderson for H & M, and I can now officially declare Christmas open!
My last trip got me in the festive mood, as I jetted off to The Hague for the press preview and private view of the Givenchy exhibition “To Audrey With Love” which celebrates the iconic designers relationship with Miss Hepburn until the end, and is truly beautiful and a very personal journey. I also found out the Hague has Holland’s best hidden beach! So I will be proposing a press trip to experience that for myself in the summer… After World Travel Market my head is buzzing with travel pitches- salsa in Cuba and downtown LA have particularly resonated!
Being freelance I do get invited to the odd Christmas party.. odd being the operative word! But it was great to meet Gok Wan and Dawn O Porter at the Morena Morena do at The Trampery. I gave them both my card- watch this space! It seemed telly bods were on my circuit as I also bumped into the lovely Mark Heyes at the Boohoo do. He has lovely eyes! And is a big believer in fast fashion.
As I have just moved, I am on the lookout for housey bits this Christmas, but I did treat myself to some scrummy ankle boots from the gorgeous new website Sosandar. Check them out for classic on trend pieces that you can mix up with anything! Love.
