Not Just Any Doorstep…


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, at the beginning of March I had an email from the lovely Charlotte Ward. Charlotte is a writer and was working on a Sex And The City article for Cosmopolitan magazine. She said she had found the photograph of me sat on the infamous stoop of Carrie Bradshaw’s humble abode and would like to write a small article about how I came about Carrie’s stoop – what happened before her stoop and what has happened since.

I was more than happy to oblige of course; so we had a telephone interview and that was that… Until the JUNE 2010 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine hit shelves this week of course;o

You can read the ‘Not Just Any Doorstep…’ article, by Charlotte Ward from page 121 onwards (I’m on page 122).

ENJOY!

(PS – Hands up who can’t wait for SATC 2?!)

Selling due to upgrade.

The laptop has a few minor scratches on the exterior metal due to unavoidable wear. The only other small problem is that the processor fan is quite loud, although I have replaced it with a new fan, which reduced the noise somewhat, this does not effect the performance of the computer at all.

Any questions? send me an email!

Thank you!

James literally bought this XBOX 360 Arcade console for the latest and greatest Grand Theft Auto release. He also bought Grand Theft Auto seperately. He’s selling both together as a neat package on eBay. He has completed GTA and subsequently has no need for this XBOX now (we’re not console players, apart from the Wii, but that doesn’t count!) So yeah, its ACTUALLY brand new!!

So please please PLEASE help us in our funding for our big bad move to the big bad smoke!

Clearly this package is well sought after, still! So get you bidding guns at the ready! [Please pass on the details of this auction to your family/friends/related parties! Thanks!]

Gok Wan’s Clothes Roadshow Hits Newcastle.



eee what a day we had yesterday!

well, I met my friend Christie at Monument (Newcastle) just to see what all the fuss was about really. Gok being Gok did not mind leaving the crowd waiting for 2 hours or whatever it was before walking through the crowd to the stage. The whole proceedings was meant to begin at midday, we got there at about 1.30. He went on stage for literally minutes and opened ‘registrations’. This is when the penny finally dropped… rofl.

-Gok Wan on stage at Monument, Newcastle – Photo by Claire Briston (www.clairebriston.com)

This whole sha-bang was a new Gok TV show, which was looking for a national ‘Style Icon’ for the UK. Men, women and children were invited to register. At this point we thought it was pointless to stick around, we didn’t want to register, nor did we want to walk the dreaded catwalk infront of hundreds of people! So we headed to Vivienne Westwood to have a peak at the new season stock. There was a massive crowd, of quite young children outside. but regardless, we went in. Gok was inside; being a little bit diva-ish. “Rich darling hold my remote”, “oh this simply isn’t right”. etc etc etc. I ordered a tee and we ended up walking out together. rofl. rather funny indeed.

Then we saw a few friends in the queue for walking the catwalk, they’d already registered. We said we’d hang about to watch them walk the catwalk.

Then Gok comes off the stages and walks past us with his camera. We sneered. He then turned round and asked James (my fiance) if he’d registered to walk the catwalk, and he laughed and said “nah mate”. Gok then grabbed our hands and wrote a “G” on it in a marker pen, and said “you are walking my catwalk, get to the front of the queue and get your polaroids taken!”. Anyone who knows my James knows he HATE famous people, not because theyre famous, but because they are normal people (allegedly). He hates the whole thing. He hates fuss. He hates ‘audience participation’ the most. So clearly when FORCED to do something like this, he was mortified…much to mine and christies hilarity. rofl.

So we start to fill out the registration forms, and then get asked to do an interview rofl. So we did. All of us speechless. I said THEE shittest things rofl. horrendous. CRINGE.

Then we had our polaroids taken, and shortly after had to walk the catwalk… horrific. I wouldn’t have minded if I’d had my heels on, walking the catwalk just isn’t natural in flats:'(

but hey-ho!

We then went for  a wander while Gok deliberated over the five semi-finalists.

We thought it would be absolutely hilarious if James won… then one by one Gok announces the finalists, and his reasons for why they were chosen. He kept looking our way when reading out the names… then he announces a ‘Jamie’, we automatically thought he’d got James’ name wrong (until he said the guys surname), I literally pissed myself laughing as the colour drained from James’ face. Then low and behold, the final name called out is James Hill. ha. I creased over. hilarious. absolutely hilarious.

The 5 finalists then had to walk the catwalk once again before the winner, whom would go to the London heat, was announced.

James, much to his relief, didnt win. A 33 year old lady won. She was lovely. So everyone was smiles.

I then had another interview backstage about how i ‘felt’. rofl.

And that was the day that was.

The show should be aired around mid-June. So keep your eyes peeled!

FRIDAYS MUST HAVE: ‘Fantasy Horse’ T-Shirt by BOUTIQUE (@ Topshop).


FRIDAYS MUST HAVE:

Friday 18th April 2008.

-“Fantasy Horse” T Shirt by Boutique, £30.00

This t-shirt is amazing, and I’m mostly certainly going to be on the purchase when I visit London in 19 days time! Its so 80s its untrue. I think it’ll look fantastic teamed with super skinny black jeans and seriously killer patent heels, OR, if in my case your no taller than 5 ft, I could get away with wearing it with tights as a dress I reckons.

The ultra-cool ‘fantasy horse’ graphic is printed on 100% cotton and is machine washable. This beaut of a tshirt comes straight from the BOUTIQUE department at TOPSHOP, so this item is only available online (while stocks last ofcourse), and in very selected stores, such as OXFORD CIRCUS, London:)

IN ADDITION, to top it off, see the below dress, taken from http://www.net-a-porter.com where either Topshop have taken their inspiration (which I presume they have), or has MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA twoc’d the design from Topshop??

-‘Wild Horses’ Dress by Maison Martin Margiela, £695.00

OTHER TITLES: FRIDAYS MUST HAVE!
Romantic Frill Dress from TOPSHOP.
Tulip Skirt from TOPSHOP.

Vivienne Westwood “Crap” Tshirt.
Miss S Chain Detail Bag.

ALL SAINTS “Juliet” Tee.
