The idea was, relaxing drive down, early night., refreshed for the long days travel to Los Angeles.
The reality was running round like a blue arsed fly, grabbing samples, flinging dresses into suitcases, queueing for hours in the bank ( don't even go there), having my roots done...the brown was coming through..How ruuuude!!! Finishing off the brochure list, saying my goodbyes to my kiddywinks...hmmm...sorry young adults, Buying mens Ugg slippers cos nothing else will get over my broken toes without causing me to scream after 30 mins. Can you believe it £80 for a pair of slippers...wtf??? But you know what...worth every frikkin penny!!
Err what else.?? Oh yes spending the drive down editing photos and typing out the instructions for my CHA class, not easy when Mr Babe of Deliciousness is careering around bends on country lanes!!!
So we finally get here, gorgeous room, four poster bed, bottle of the best vimto and ready to relax, only to finally check my emails (those on O2 will know we have had no phone signal all day) to find my new Dylusions releases have already been leaked. !!! How very dare they?? What is the world coming to when your own sneek peeks get sneek peeked !!!!!
So instead of chilling and enjoying the ambience me thought I had better offer you all a blog post and pretty damn quick at that, lol. Unfortunately I can't show you many samples until I land at the other side of the pond, as they are all beautifully wrapped in bubble wrap and stuffed...err sorry positioned into my case. I do promise though as soon as I get to the other end, I will release there fabulousness on you all!!!
