Thank you Jacques fruit Cider for the delicious launch of your townhouse last night on Fitzroy square in the heart of Fitzrovia with my good friends Poppy French and James Barnett (click their names to check out their blogs)
On entering we were given napkins that doubled as maps (perfect to wipe your fingers after a complimentary cupcake or 18... forgive us - but it's free. Waste is a crime - think of the third world) and keys to the ever important bar.
The celebs were out in force with Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her hubby DJ-ing alongside Jameela Jamil, half the cast of GMTV (and there we all were thinking they were nocturnal to make those early morning starts) and a couple of ex-girlbanders. Infact, I couldn't help thinking maybe we should have played cupid and got Keisha (of ex-sugababes fame) and Liz McClarnon (of ex-atomic kitten fame) together in the vague hope of landing the biggest duo to hit the charts since Sonny and Cher (or Gaga / Beyonce if you'd prefer) - alas twas not to be.
So we sipped Cider, celeb-spotted and all got told to leave our jobs and play with the wheel of fortune (...) by the gypsy fortune tellers while we lounged around on giant outdoor scatter cushions (my gay side got a bit excited at the thought) underneath the Forest of Dreams (just one of the amazing theme rooms created for the event by the creative team).
OK Magazine in the goodie bag? Yes please - we've got a night bus to catch.
