The last week has been a fairly quiet one, focusing on family. With a combination of work and my blog, life can get hectic, but the last few weeks have helped to give me some perspective. That and a meeting with Santa, obviously. So, here’s what’s going on this week…
reading The Impact Equation by Chris Brogan & Julien Smith. I’m really keen to learn about marketing to networks offline. With the huge shift to social, it’s easy to forget the importance of peer-to-peer recommendations offline and this really intrigues me.
listening to Dog is Dead – an indie band from Nottingham in the UK. I love the band, I just wish they were named differently. You can’t help but sound like a suicidal teenager when people ask for your favourite band!
thinking It’s 1.30pm and I should be eating lunch. Today is running away with me and as soon as I clear 10 emails, another 20 come in to fill their place.
smelling the skinny latte with sugar free vanilla that’s sitting in front of me from Starbucks in a red cup. A RED CUP. This officially makes it Christmas. The big guy will be making his delivery in no time.
wishing the boy didn’t have to wait until Thursday for his final test. It’s been put back slightly due to scheduling. He’s passed the test that determines whether he’s put forwards, so fingers crossed Thursday goes well.
hoping lots of people turn up to my high-end fashion pop-up this Saturday in Chelsea/South Kensington. I’m going to be styling and everything
wearing black leggings, over the knee boots and a mixed top with leather shoulders. It’s casual at home wear that nobody can see, apart from you, obvs.
loving the new cookies & cream fudge Brownie recipe that I’ve just learned from Lorraine Pascale. It takes no time and tastes totally delicious. I’m getting into this whole baking thing!
wanting the new Long Frill Trench Coat by Burberry. Seriously stlylin’.
needing to see James Bond. It’s now been out for months and I’m still to see it. This makes me a bad Bond geek.
feeling excited for Christmas. I bought my first presents this week. The ASOS discount that I got by completing challenges on Yourvine definitely helped with this.
clicking through http://samsungcamera.tumblr.com/ which is the fruition of months of work by my team to help promote the Samsung GALAXY Camera. I’m currently a very proud mother hen.
This week will see a busy Mel, with lots on at work, a Lovestruck premiere, review at Harrisons Brasserie by Rich Stein and a designer pop-up on Saturday. Breath!
Happy Monday. Stay awesome.
