The blondie – the Debbie Harry to Chrissie Hynde’s brownie- lighter on top but with the same tight leather trousers and uncompromising stare; a statuesque grande dame of the dessert world, as satisfying as that laconic rap in Rapture and a smudgy rim of eyeliner. I use Raspberry & Champagne marshmallows to further lighten the texture- my culinary equivalent of peroxide.
Banging house music, velvet sofas, bare brick walls, gooseberry gin, scoops of vegan ice cream, flashes of neon AND toasted marshmallows. This was a living room party that set the bar high. Thrown by Made.com in their northern showroom and hosted by the game changing No House Rules team this bash was to show off how to style your space and showcase why furniture should be for enjoying, not keeping for best.
It’s pretty hard when you create a brand around yourself- your story, your journey, your recipe not to take things personally. My business is personal. Completely and utterly personal. So decisions that harm the business are completely hurtful and harmful to me. Everything from unpaid bills, reneged contracts, thoughtless comments. It doesn’t get ‘handled’ by an ‘account manager’ it gets picked up by me and, wow, does it sometimes get too much.
