I’ve turned into a prepper. No stocking up on baked beans and bottled water or building a bunker at That’s Not My Age Mansions (we don’t have the room); just laying plans for survival in the face of upcoming work-related chaos. Know Your Style launches in the UK tomorrow and I am very much looking forward to that. But having been here once before, I know what’s ahead – while it’s not exactly doomsday, the whole experience can be very demanding at times. Mostly this comes down to the work-life balance tilting to become all work and no life. And I’d much rather have New Balance than No Balance. In preparation, I’ve been making lists and trying to be as organised as possible; planning a couple of events for autumn with the help of a brilliant, freelance PR. Watch this space for further details.
The Lovely Blue Shirt and everyday jeans are two of my style essentials. I’m wearing a cotton shirt from a small independent company called House of Khadi. The word Khadi means handwoven or hand-spun in Sanskrit and apparently is more than just a cloth, it’s a whole movement in India and was initiated by Gandhi. Maybe we could all learn something from Gandhi’s peaceful approach…
Know Your Style London book-signing is on Thursday 7 September between 5-6pm. Further details HERE.
See you on the other side.
