Paaaaydaaaaaaay is finally here! Does anyone else feel like January seems to have gone on forever?! This week has seen some incredible events and product launches, a super busy work schedule, and kicking off the renovation of Stable Cottage, so you can’t even begin to imagine how long my to do list is! Luckily I found a solution for offloading my tasks.. intrigued?! Read on!
This Week I’ve Been…
… Spending far too long staring at paint swatches. Mum’s new house is a beautiful old Stable cottage, but it sure needs a lot of work. We are totally re-doing the kitchen and bathroom and we’re at the fun stage now of choosing the tiles, worktops and fixtures. So this week my table has been covered in home magazines, paint swatches, and even the odd slab of marble or two!
… Creating my Summer Wardrobe Wishlist with House of Fraser. Their high summer press day was seriously lust-worthy, with bikinis, accessories, and summer dresses that made me want to emigrate just so that I could wear them all year round! So many of you commented on the beautiful Bridesmaids dresses on my instagram, and the great news is that they will be under £100 too!
… Swooning over the new Real Techniques brushes. It was a bit of a pinch me moment stepping into the roof bar of the Mondrian Hotel for the launch of the #BoldMetals collection; all my favourite beauty bloggers in one place, and some seriously stunning brushes! The Chapman sisters gave a passionate introduction to their new brush range before Rose, Hayley, Vicky and I spent the evening making slightly tipsy pacts about moving to NYC to live out our Sex and the City dreams!
… Offloading my To Do list with TaskRabbit. Whoever came up with this company is genius. They match up busy people with vetted taskers in your local area who help you take on your to-do list, kind of like a modern day PA! I’ve been enlisting helpers to deliver my old clothes to the post office after selling them on eBay, and next week I’ll be having some help with sorting out my loft! They’re running a competition at the moment where you nominate a loved one for a Random Task of Kindness, follow @TaskRabbit on Instagram and post a pic of yourself with the person you want to send a surprise to. Use the #RandomTasksofKindness and say why you’re nominating them, and winners will be selected at random and the tasks will be sent out to brighten up their day!
… Persuading the PR girls at Barry M to let me brew my own nail polish! Is brew the right word? Probs not. But at the press event this week, the London based brand launched their beautiful range of summer nail polishes which all looked good enough to eat! I was told stories about the process of picking the perfect colours and it sounded like my dream day out… so fingers crossed they’re reading this and get the hint… I want to play!
What have you been up to this week?
