Nice exciting drive home!

Its very sad to admit it , but I really enjoy my drives home nowadays. I eagerly cant wait to turn the corner at the Mannington Roundabout and see what progress the John Lewis store has made that day. Theres always something going on and I can literally see a change every day! I watched a TV programme about JL not long ago and as a business owner, it was really inspiring. There stock management system was amazing!!! It also intrigues me that I can just look at an advert in a magazine or watch adverts on tele and without seeing a logo or anything, I always guess the JL one! Now thats brand identity for you!

So if anyone wants to join me for a hot chocolate in the JL store on my way home on the day it opens - 28th October - see you there!

Photoshoot with Miss Swindon 2010

We were really pleased to be asked to be involved in Emmas photoshoot. Leighanda, our senior stylist worked her magic on her hair and I did Emmas makeup.

We wanted to create something different for Emma, to create a look that she hasnt done before and we`re really pleased with the results.

Kris Talikowski, the, as always, fantastic photographer, asked for clean, nude skin and dramatic eyes.

Heres a sneak preview of the first shot, we think she looks great! What do you think?!

just grazing!!!

In our industry its hard to take regular breaks and full hour lunchbreaks. Lunchtimes are particularly busy with clients popping in and we want to try to fit them all in! Every Friday I have been getting a Graze box delivered. It comes in 4 handy little sections, so I can nibble on it inbetween clients and meetings. You can go to their website and select what foods you like and dont like and its delivered to my work every Friday for me! I have a discount code, so you can try a box for free and £1 goes to charity FPMB5N83. Go on, give it a go, it brightens up my Fridays!
