In celebration of London Fashion Week the hilarious London Grumblr are hosting a competition for all you gif wizards and fashion lovers, where you can win a cut and blow dry (and a glass of champagne!) with a top stylist at Charles Worthington House. Snazzy!! Runners up get their manicured mitts on a copy of Confessions of a Fashionista. You’ve got till midnight this Thursday 12th September 2013 to enter. Get to it, people! Full details on how to enter here.
I’ve been feeling a bit rundown recently, which usually mean my stress levels go up. Times of concern include: travelling (have you tried taking public transport with a large case and a walking stick? I wouldn’t recommend it), mornings (they seem to be spent mostly in bed with low energy levels) and night times (great, so now I can’t sleep!). The technical term for my current physical state is: broken.
I recently stayed at a B&B that used Neal’s Yard products, including vaporising oils. I’d forgotten the affect aromatherapy has on me. For the first time in weeks I felt my shoulders relax and I slept soundly (and no, there was no alcohol involved). As soon as I got home I went to Neal’s Yard and snapped up these Ready to Roll oils. A neat travel pack in a hessian pouch, it contains four small vials of oil blends to apply to your pressure points for: Relaxation, Travel, Energy and Night Time. Last night I slept well, this morning I feel energised. Forget £16.50 these are worth their weight in gold. A little bit of portable pampering. Perfect.
Neal’s Yard Ready to Roll set costs £16.50 and is available here: http://www.nealsyardremedies.com/Remedies-To-Roll-Set
How do you make a book stand out in an increasingly difficult market? I’m not sure. But I’ve had a go with this animation. It’s inspired by scenes from Confessions of a Fashionista and is a homage to the fashion industry. I hope you like it.
