You know one of the nicest parts of my job? When I get to tell someone they have won a competition. This time it was extra special because it was quite some prize. Along with Foyles we ran a Diary of a Mall Girl competition in Bliss Magazine, with the winners getting a £150 shopping spree, a manicure, a blow dry and a book picnic party with Luisa Plaja! Not bad huh?
So on Saturday we greeted three very excited and lovely girls, Anna (the winner), Chloe and Lydia (her friends), and Anna’s mum Mirella, and began their whirlwind day at Westfield.
First, off to get their nails done:
Then a quick walk across the mall for a blow dry and style:
Looking glamorous and chatting to Luisa Plaja about Diary of a Mall Girl, teen fiction and writing:
Getting their copies of Diary of a Mall Girl signed:
Then, appetites built by lots of walking and learning about the life of an author, it was time for cupcake decorating!
And there the day ended for us, with smiles and sugar! But for the girls it was time to go and shop till they dropped!
What a great day it was, a big thank you to Anna, Chloe, Lydia and Mirella for being so much fun, to Luisa for being a star again, Foyles, Bliss and Westfield and to the rest of the CF team for making it all happen.
Can we do it again this weekend please?
