Last night I attended the fabulous 2014 Product of the Year Awards at an absolutely stunning venue, number 8 Northumberland Avenue near Trafalgar Square. This was the second time I was at this venue, and I loved coming back as the atmosphere is so stylish and very unique.
I was so busy on that day. As it usually happens, so many things had to be happening that day when I wanted to get ready for these “red carpet” awards. In the morning I had a few people looking at our house as we are selling it, and then had to cook lunch and soon after that I had to rush to Isabelle’s school to attend “reading meeting fro parents”, which was supposed to help us understand how to help them read better. At the end, the meeting was maybe useful to some, but definitely not to year 2 parents as we agreed with my friends, so I was a bit disappointed as I could have done with the extra hour yesterday. Anyway, then I realized I had to take Isabelle to her piano lesson, and there was no way I would have managed all that without my fabulous mum. Luckily it was snot raining and she walked with her and Olivia in her buggy to the music school which is not that far. That gave me a bit of extra time to get dressed, put some evening make-0up on and rush to the train station.
I had another task, I had to buy some high heel shoes for the evening as I had a voucher that is expiring next week, and I could not see myself coming back to Oxford Street just because of that. The good news is that I found a gorgeous pair which I wore that evening, and felt great.
Anyway, you might remember me blogging about these awards back in September when I was part of the jury, and I could not wait to see who all the winners were. The large conference room was filled with so many excited people who all wanted to win.
Alexander Armstrong was making sure there was loads of laughing involved.
