Mum on the Run – On the red carpet

Now, I’ve managed to get myself into a bit of a pickle and I should be really grateful if you could help me to get out of it.

For a while now, Easy Living Magazine has been running a feature entitled “schoolrunway”. As well as running a feature in the magazine, they have been asking people to send in photos, via twitter, of what they wear on the school run every day. As I do that already for the blog, it was really easy for me to flick them over to Easy Living too. 

However, it has now been turned it into a competition and yesterday Easy Living suggested that I should enter.  So, what now happens is that the photos are posted on Facebook with a request for people to “Like” the entries. Whichever photo gets the most “Likes” wins the competition.

Now this is where it gets tricky for me.  Unlike twitter, where a) things move on so quickly they are soon superceded by something else, so that even if you look an idiot it doesn’t last for long and b) I never get to know if anyone has looked at the photo or not – the whole facebook thing is so much more visible. So, if you felt able to go in and click the “Like” button on the facebook page next to my pic, by following this link, I should be really grateful.  I don’t expect to win but it would be nice to get a couple of votes – double figures would be nice – I’m not greedy!

Progressing on to last night’s Style Event… 

Here’s a picture of me last night before we kicked off. As you may have noticed, I am wearing the same skirt that I wore for the Marie Claire awards. I chose this skirt for two reasons: First, I knew that I wouldn’t have to walk very far in it and so was therefore unlikely to encounter the same irritating hurdles that I encountered when I wore it to the awards in i.e. not being able to move in the flippin’ thing and desperately wanting to get home so that I could take it off. Secondly, I thought that the new dress I had intended to wear would work well on one of the models, so I selflessly(!) gave it up for her.

Once I have the OK from the others that they are happy with the pics, I will post a few more.  For now however I am afraid that it is just my mug shots that I can show:

Me being wired for sound – a la Cliff Richard,

Starting my presentation and chatting to the audience before introducing the models and their outfits;

As our eldest said “Well that’s as close to the big screen as you’re ever going to get.” Yes, thank you for that one sweetheart.

Everyone was lovely – the audience, the models and everyone who was there to help with the smooth running of the event.  Can’t wait until the next one.

Today I headed back into town and during my trip I spotted these Marni pieces in the window of H&M. They are on display in preparation for the launch of the collaboration between H&M and Marni on 8th March. Predictably I liked the spotty items and some of the jewellery. I am still undecided though about the tribal prints.   

I would love to have been a teacher in our daughter’s school yesterday.  Her class were doing a 7 hour sponsored silence for the charity “No child born to die”, which is part of Save the Children. What a perfect day! Imagine the sound today though. OK, maybe not.

      Thank you Anne – I definitely enjoyed wearing the skirt more this time around. Thanks for the vote too. Have a great weekend.
