As much as I was excited by the array of textures and finishes (hello calf-hair Betty Jackson bag, leather trimmed parka and casual sequins – we can be winter friends) and my makeover by the lovely Andrew from Benefit, it was my awkward introduction to Mark Heyes that I really treasure from the recent Debenhams evening.
Mark: I went to Glasgow School of Art… Thankfifi: (rudely interrupting) Me tooooo! … You know when you have to stop yourself from chiming in every 2 seconds like a loon because you’re pretty darn sure you were meant to be BFFs? It was like that (for me). I mean, come on, he’s the fashion hero of GMTV. Thanks Mark, you were a true gent.
Not to be outdone, the husband suggested he should have a photo with Louise Redknapp who was launching a new makeup line, Wild About Beauty (which did actually look quite fabulous). Like a pushy Disney Land mother I went forth… ‘Could the husband possibly have a photo with you?’. I tell you, I just could not get enough awkward that night.

P.P.S. As you can probably tell, if not my conversation, my facial expressions alone are quite captivating.
