I hope you all enjoyed the final Butler & Wilson show of the year last Sunday. For once, I think Simon enjoyed his present…let's hope he will be able to make notes on lots more ideas for his collections.
It is the same style notebook my family bought me for Mother's Day earlier in the year and I compiled the entire idea for my novel in it, so I hope it gives him similar inspiration.
I got home from work in time for dinner and then made the first of the two Christmas cakes I do each year. The first is the family one where we all stir and make a wish so it had to be done Sunday when we were all around. Monday I soaked it with brandy and wrapped it up and set about making the second one for backstage. All done now apart from the marzipan and icing of course.
On Tuesday night my beloved Crystal Palace were playing West Ham. We have two season tickets and Dan gets his coaching staff ticket so Chris was able to come too. We were all pleased as Palace haven't lost this season when Chris has been in the stadium and true to form we managed a 1 – 0 victory. I'm trying to persuade him he wants to go again on Saturday!
I will be rushing from Selhurst Park to Chiswick Park as I have the final showing of the L'Occitane TSV at 10pm…assuming they have bought enough stock to last the day. My sample had the Almond Shower Oil in it, one of my favourite L'Occitane products, and the Sweet Almond hand wash, which is being discontinued. Great for gifting or stockpiling.
Talking of TSVs I am launching the Bibi Bijoux TSV at midnight tonight, which is why I have done this a day earlier than usual. It is one of Maxine's 'balls' bracelets but this time with the addition of crystal charms – very pretty. I think Ali Young might have been wearing the matching necklace on air last night if you spotted it and liked it. Hopefully I'll see a few of you later on.
Tomorrow's Fashion on Friday is EMU…so difficult to choose Julia's Pick as I own four of the seven styles in the show, but in the end I chose the Echidna. A lot of the lines are on Easy Pay and with cold weather around the corner it's the perfect time to buy.
Wilfy had his second jab today and doesn't seem to have any after effects – he is sleeping on my knee at the moment! I am still waiting for my test results so will put it on next week's blog
Have a great weekend.
