My Video Debut On Ikea Family Live

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.

Weird and cool to see my face on the IKEA Family Live page though, even if it is really freckly. (I always forget how freckled I am until I see photos). Click over to see what I’m going on about.

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…..
