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!]

GOLD: Giles Deacon for New Look, SS ’08.


I’ve selected a few of the more favorable items for the most recent collection… all of which I’ve seen online, and not a single one in my local store. I don’t think the last few collections sold well, and so with the launch last week (which coincided with the Kate Moss for TOPSHOP launch incidently…) my local New Look store in Eldon Sq got the collection again, except all the clothes look bedraggled, and in a word, ‘odd’. The quality isn’t there as it was with the very first collection (from which I purchased 2 dresses). There wasn’t an awful lot on offer either, and I suspect they head office just sent the ‘cheaper’ items to the store, thinking those were the items that would sell, but with a whole vera stand, fully stocked, obviously this wasn’t the case.

-GOLD by Giles, Chain detail vintage style scarf, £15.00

picture-12.png

-GOLD by Giles, Grey Batwing Jumper, £18.00

-GOLD by Giles, Tonal Tiered Dress, £60.00

My favourite piece has to be the above pink dress. Its absolutely amazing, and I think it looks so much more expensive than it is; a real fashion statement. This time around however, there are no shoes I’m fond of, no bags, no accessories. Quite the disappointment! More so, that none of the items are available in my aforementioned store! Talk about frustration!

Also, I think I should probably add about the change of model for the campaign. Agyness Deyn, muse and model to Giles Deacon, replaces Drew Barrymore as the face of GOLD. There has been quite the hoo-har over the change of face, and indeed body; mostly due to the fact Giles chose Drew Barrymore on the basis of her being curvy, and could fill out the clothing range like a ‘normal’ female… a ‘normal’ female purchasing from the highstreet. And there lies our debacle. Aggy, is not ‘normal’, shes nearly 6 ft’ and has a 26″ (or probably smaller!) waist. While the clothes hang nicely on her frame, she certainly is not the shape of a New Look shopper to say the least! In saying that I suppose you could say, ‘well, kate moss isn’t the best person to use in the promotion of her own clothing line at TOPSHOP!’, except, she is! She’s more curvy than Aggy, and well, she genuinely wears her own range, aswell as TOPSHOPs own buy range… and yes it’s true, we do get a lot of Kate Moss-esque females through our doors, buying our gear… this can hardly be said for New Look. AND might I add, this is not me defending a size zero woman in any shape or form rofl. I’m merely suggesting that Aggy does not fit the ‘stereotype’ of a New Looker. Do not blast me for that. Thank you!

For now, I’ll be sticking to the Giles label alone.

Ms. Judy Pink.

The Shoe Project.


I will endeavor through “The Shoe Project” posts reveal my love for the beauty and magic of SHOES!

Now I really never used to be a ‘shoe person’, not in the slightest and despite working on the Shoe Dept in Topshop for a living! But hey-ho, I’m now a full blown obsessive! I fear that my Sex and The City girls are half to blame for that! Damn you Carrie Bradshaw!

So with that in mind, I will be displaying the beautiful shoes I currently own and love, and the shoes I’m destined to totter around in, the shoes that are the fashion statement to an outfit, and the shoes ofcourse that will be on my infamous ‘to buy’ list; but I doubt I’ll ever be able to afford!

Up until, say a year ago, I wore my heels occassionally, mostly for a meal or a good nights worth of dancing.

Infact, once over I didn’t own a pair of heels, now thats all I own! And thank the lord for the invention! I’m a petite 5 foot something or other (ahem), and hey I need all the height I can get – my justification behind the recent purchase of my perfect Purple RIVA2’s 🙂

So onwards, and dare I say it… upwards!

Ms. Judy Pink.

London Wednesday 13th Feb-Friday 15th Feb.


Well well well, I will begin with saying that I will NEVER, EVER EVER, EVER, get on another Megabus in my life… even if my life depends on it!

– The Megabus, A.K.A the ‘HellBus’.

WEDNESDAY 13TH FEB.

After 10 minutes, Jennifer and I were ready to cry… then we were ready to get off the bus at Scotch Corner and either WALK home and hitch a ride. The bus didn’t stop at Scotch Corner in the end, so we decided to just see how far we could get. We were sad, and I thought the man sat on my right was an actual mental. He was erratic, RUDE, constantly twitching, constantly grunting, constantly ‘checking something’ in side his rucksack. hmmm. My thoughts exactly. SO after Wakefield, Jen and I got a seat together, she slept the rest of the way… I did not. THEREFORE, I had been awake exactly 24 hours by the time we got to Victoria Station. SHATTERED does not cut it!

We met Kelly at Liverpool St,then headed to South Kensington so I could head to LFW!

-Outside the BFC EXHIBITION Tent.

-My London Fashion Week ACTUAL Pass!!!!! 😀

I must admit, I was slightly disappointed with what I found, I think I would have been more open minded had I had SOME sleep! For September, I will definitely have my placement sorted, and will definitely gain more experience and knowledge! and get more pictures! damn pass!

-Two interesting Gypsy girls. Poseurs springs to mind;o

-Homelessness on the streets of Kensington.

I was truly mystified and saddened by the contrast of the 100 meters between what was going on at the Natural History Museum and outside the V&A.

As Kelly lives off Brick Lane we wandered down the amazing street a few times a day. We passed the Rough Trade shop and found this…

The Banksy Car🙂 I was best impressed. I’m an avid Banksy fan.

THURSDAY 14th FEB – Valentines Day.

Jennifer and I did some touristy things, I took her to visit the Queen for instance… and Hamleys was a barrel of laughs. We had then planned in drinks in Soho and off to Smash and Grab… however, after queuing for over an hour in -10 temperatures, we sacked it off in order to find some bars. We ended up in one bar, we ended up with a few randoms… trying to pull, with it being Valentines an’ all. I just flashed my ring though:) bonus! Then we had a guy come over, who was convinced I was Pixie Geldof. hilarious! We didnt correct him. I couldnt tell if it was a compliment or not…?? I cant say we look all that much alike to be honest!

can you spot a resemblance? at all?! nah, me neither!

We had wine and CHAMPAGNE bought for us!

Then we went to G-A-Y…. but for some reason you need a membership? who knows. We were ready for our beds anyway!

FRIDAY 15TH FEB.

We over slept majorly. I had a bad hangover… and well, we needed to prepare for our dreaded journey back! The journey back was horrendous. My ipod ran out of battery… I couldnt get any radio stations on my phone…i felt too sick to read my magazines and there was a group of school children who were from a special needs school. so again, i did not sleep. not a wink. Got back to Newcastle at 11pm, and walked home. James surprised me with a dozen roses when I got home:)

Then well, if you read my previous blog, you’ll know what happened next! Bloody As You Like It, horrendous.

For now…

Ms. Judy Pink.
