Don’t you just hate when people put you on the spot? Like, “Hey you’re free Friday night aren’t you – you don’t mind babysitting for me do you?” or “Can I borrow those new Manolo’s?” or “You don’t mind doing a little video do you? For IKEA…”
The lovely IKEA Family Live team did just that when we were in Budapest late last year to style a home. It was hot, I was sweating and wearing not very attractive shorts, my hair was tied back and I had no make-up on. AND I don’t necessarily love being on camera (although I’m getting more comfortable with it), even a harmless little iPhone one. But when IKEA asks, you really don’t say no.
Disclaimer: I am of course totally joking. I didn’t hate it at all. It is a huge honour to be included on the IKEA Live website. I just wish I’d done my hair and makeup.
Second disclaimer: I do not own a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes for anyone to borrow. I prefer to pay my rent and feed my children. But perhaps when they’ve left home…..
