Wonders of the Week

I am still really, really, really loving my job at Iroquois PR.

I don't think I've ever in my life loved a job this much after my second week, but my work-curse seems to have finally broken! But alas, working full time means that by the time I come home, I have just about enough energy sustained to cook dinner for the fella and I, chill out for a few hours, sleep, and then do it all again the next day.

I'm sure this explains why I haven't written a blog post in over a week - I have been using all my creative energy at work! 

This week I have created visual press releases to send to journalists/stylists about how houndstooth is a big SS14 trend, especially when it's an enlarged print in pastel colours. Another big SS14 trend is roman coins (seen majorly at D&G's show), and this is good news for my company because our brand, Gina Stewart Cox, has done a huge jewellery collection using roman coins and tassels so it's extremely relevant. 

I've also been calling stylists to see what stories they're working on and sending anything we have that could hopefully work for them, merchandising the showroom, and creating SS14 trend boards to send to our clients in hope that they'll be able to create similar samples to match the trend. It's been amazing!

In between doing all of this, I discovered Laura Gravestock. As I've mentioned countless times before, I love love love dainty and precious jewellery and this is exactly what Laura Gravestock does at very affordable prices. My favourite is this heart ring:

It is SO similar to these Jordan Askill ones, but only a fraction of the price! Alex bought me one as a 'just because it's Wednesday' present and I couldn't be happier with it!

Another thing I discovered this week was major show-scandal from the Nina Ricci SS14 show which made me laugh a lot. You can read about the topless feminine activists here if you haven't already.

And lastly, on my quest to find a perfect lunch time spot near my work (in old street), I found a subliminal little place called Yum Bun. Here is a glimpse of what they do:

And yes, I can confirm it tastes even better than it looks. The buns are hand-made steamed buns that are so warm, soft and fluffy - just like clouds! You can choose from pork, fish, mushroom, salmon, chicken or beef as your filling, and they all come garnished with some deliciously mouth-watering extras. I went for the chicken which was 'Japanese fried' and came with tartar mayo, chilli dressing, and lettuce. It was possibly the best thing I have ever eaten in my life!

As well as buns, they also serve miso soup, vegetable dumplings, and the best iced jasmine tea ever. They're open for lunch between 11:30am-2:30pm Monday-Friday, and for dinner from 5pm-10pm Thursday-Saturday. IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE VISIT PEOPLE! I hope you hear me loud and clear otherwise you are missing out tremendously!

Until next time my lovelies! xoxo
