on pattern clashing and pugs

It’s been a busy week. Uni is pretty mental, and the film festival launches on Thursday. Oh, also my friend Craig got a pug.This is Stella. Isn’t she precious?She’s 10 weeks old and is so tiny. I didn’t quite expect her to be so small – or so cute, but she’s just proper brilliant. I’m not going to lie….she’s teething so made a fair go at a pair of my shoes as well as my nightdress, but look at this face. Actually IMPOSSIBLE to be mad at her.

I hadn’t seen Craig for ages so thought would go visit him and his puppy. I’m pretty much preparing to become a social recluse for the next couple of weeks – so the idea of puppies, crap tv (Charmed and 4 weddings if you must know) and a catch up sounded perfect. Needless to say, my pals know how to do hospitality. You can tell he used to work in a hotel right?

I hadn’t really had a moment to myself the past wee while, so retreating to my friends felt like a mini get away. I swear all I seemed to do is sleep, eat and cuddle the puppy. Ended up staying over as walking home late by myself isn’t really an option at the moment. It does however mean mini crabtree and evelyn products and executive mints on my bed, which is always pretty nice. Do hotels still do mints on their pillows? Am I just staying in fairly grim establishments when I do go away?

Went over quite late…so bummed my hair in a crap bun. Thought would try pattern clashing…because why the fuck not?

Anyway was really nice to get away. Was nice to switch off. I’m back in tomorrow and got a ton to do (model fittings, making sure deliveries come in, checking guest lists and the like) so I suppose this was all the calm before the storm.
What I am excited about is an exhibition we have going live on Wednesday. I’ll post more about it later in the week – but it’s exciting. I’m actually quite pleased about it as managed to get some brilliant Scottish independent designers clothes on display in a popular high street store. There will be names you’ll recognise I’m sure, and a few that you don’t – but really glad they are going to get the exposure.

Moving away from talking shop – met my mum for lunch on Saturday, (I haven’t seen her since November) and we’ve decided we’d quite like to go see a couple of shows in London – one of them being Wicked. I’m not entirely sure where to stay – or where I can find some cheap train fares, but was wondering if you guys have any recommendations of somewhere nice to stay and anything we should do while we’re down there? I haven’t been to London since I was 10 (yeah I know….) so my knowledge of the city is sketch at best.

Also – this is more of a public service announcement for fellow Glasgow girls. TK Maxx on Argyle seems to have some pretty sweet stuff in at the moment. Namely Luella. For under £100. If you’re into it I’d suggest getting down their sharpish.Till next time lovelies….farewell from me and Stella.
