Last week I had a couple of people help me out with my wardrobe and on the communications front.
Jude's fabulous necklace caused so much chatter and conversation where ever I wore it- some people even felt compelled to touch it. A little disconcerting to say the least, but I can understand it as he has made it by hand and the craft work is incredible.
I felt honoured that he lent me something so special, it may just be for sale soon if you fancy it yourself.
Telstra sent me their latest HTC HD2 phone that is so exclusive it has only just been released. I had requested something to help me get onto twitter so I was a little apprehensive when it was pushed in front of me.
Over coffee the delightful ladies from Telstra assured me that even though I'd missed the smart phone band wagon it wouldn't take me long to catch up, and soon enough I had discovered why they call them 'crackberries.'
It was put to the test the first night of fashion week when I got lost in the Docklands. Fretfully staring at my phone willing it to transform into Aladdin's lamp complete with genie, I spied a 'Where Is' application.
A map appeared with my exact location within seconds, and then asked me where I wanted to go from there. I wondered then what else this magic machinery could do- my laundry? Deliver dinner? World peace?
I twittered away all week, uploaded photos and even managed to blog from the device- something I didn't know was even possible. I have just loved using the phone and may just try and catch that band wagon before it rolls out of town. It made my coverage so easy and I felt quite the fash hag sitting front row with notebook and HTC in hand.
Eva from My Sweet Muse sent me a box of accessories to use for the week and they complemented everything that I wore. It arrived with each piece individually gift wrapped- a gal after my own heart! She very kindly included a pair of earrings for me to keep and I can't wait to wear them to a wedding I have coming up.
I am now coveting this garden of accessory delights necklace on her website.
All of these items have been loaned and are being returned this week. So you know I have not received any money to talk about or wear these products, they have kindly been lent for me to use just for fashion week.
Thank you for getting me through the week!
