Hi there, hope you are well?
Did you see the QVC Beauty Excellence Awards (#QVCBEA on Twitter – great pics on there!) last Friday? What a fantastic night – many congratulations to all the nominees and winners! I was co-hosting the event with Alison Young and my role was interviewing the beauty experts and brands backstage (check out QVC’s Beauty department to find your own favourites). The atmosphere was amazing and we had a couple of glasses of bubbly – a very fun Friday night. I hope you like the photos.
Then on the Sunday of the bank holiday weekend I went to the wedding of my dear friends Gary & Solenn – part of the Ibiza posse I so often talk about. We all met in Ibiza and have become great friends. It was such a special day and they looked so happy; they really are such a wonderful couple and I know we all wish them a lifetime of happiness.
So, September is here! I must confess I am always rather relieved when this month comes around, and over the years I have decided it’s my favourite one (and no, not just because it’s my birthday month, but because I like the softer energy it brings and how somehow everything seems to settle down again). I was having a coffee yesterday in the early morning September sunshine and I penned this little poem, what do you think?
January’s ok but let’s face it, kind of grey,
February’s alright asides from lousy valentine’s night.
March is non-descript, ain’t nothing going on,
April is damp, get those showers gone!
May gets brighter, will the warmth return?
June gives us promise of the summer we yearn.
July up and down, but where’s the sun?
August’s bit frantic – run, run, run!
October’s scary, gives me the quivers,
November’s cold, gives me the shivers.
December’s joyful but often can break you.
Now September, September is a month that will make you….
…Feel happy in the warmth of the late summer sun,
Feel relieved that once again routine has begun.
Begin to reflect on the passing year,
Golden leaves remind you to step it down a gear.
September’s the month of my birthday,
September makes me want to play.
A new beginning, fresh start, all things new,
September, September, I love you!
Do you, or have you ever been inspired to write poetry? I found it quite fun! Do post a comment below, would love as always to hear from you.
Big, big hugs
