December 1st and only another 24 days to go until the big one! Unbelievable. So Christmas shopping is high on my agenda and two of my favourite 'places' are enticing me with some very special offers. Style Compare has joined forces with my-wardrobe.com to offer one lucky customer the chance to win £150 to spend on the my-wardrobe site - simply by signing up to the Style Compare newsletter and then signing on to the my-wardrobe newsletter. The draw will be made just in time for Christmas. And my favourite of all time Sales, the Designer Warehouse Sales start this Friday offering an amazing selection of items to choose as Christmas gifts - from all sorts of cashmere bits and pieces, leather notebooks. some spectacular jewellery and, last but not least, fab Christmas designer dressing and all at really affordable prices. Check out both and enjoy spending this Festive Season!
On a totally different (and higher!) note I bumped into a very pregnant Zadie Smith, author of White Teeth, preparing herself for a swim on the day she was due to give birth to a baby boy! She is just as stunning in reality as in her pictures but was not amused when I warned her not to give birth in the pool ..... also watched Glorious 39 at my favourite local cinema club, The Lexi in Kensal Rise, North London, followed by a Q&A with the Director Poliakoff (spelling?). Romola Garai is outstandingly beautiful but the last 20 minutes of the film are dire and I felt very sorry for the actors. I was too embarrassed to pose any questions .....And last night, my first attempt at Tango dancing. Ended the evening doubled over with laughter. Such fun, great teachers, more men (sort of) than women, and partners changed for each futile attempt. Am a sucker so will go again. Loved the teachers Leandro and Romina of Tango Soul
