This is just a quickie before I go off on my hols. Firstly a big thanks to all of you who gave Sophie the 'thumbs up' for the 'Pin-up For Heroes' calendar, and also to those of you who left her encouraging comments. I will keep you posted on the progress.
Also thanks to those of you who have sent birthday cards – I'm not opening any of them before I go, so I am planning an opening ceremony when I'm in on June 18th for the Butler and Wilson show. I hope he appreciates that I am breaking into my holiday for him, but he's worth it as he is such a lovely guest.
Talking of lovely guests, how thoughtful is this? A couple of months ago I did the launch show of Lilly and Van fashion on QVC. The guest, Lilly, was saying that her husband Van is a grandson of the famous Hollywood Actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr. We started talking about movies and stars of that era and I mentioned that my favourite film is 'Gone With The Wind', and that I love Vivien Leigh.
When I met her last night prior to her appearance on the ITV 1 'The Zone' show, she handed me this 'Vivien Leigh Drvers License'. Not only had she remembered our conversation she had bought me a little memento of the great lady herself … I can honestly say that I was truly touched by this genuine gesture. Do any of you have souvenirs or mementoes of the Hollywood Greats??
I'm on with Lilly and Van at 5pm this afternoon in our Fashion on Friday regular slot, and then I have the Finale of our Opaque Gems week for 2 hours from 8pm. Hope you can join me for those before I crash out on a sunlounger with my Factor 30 on!
