Off to the Scottish Fashion Awards…

As anyone who follows me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook will have guessed, this morning I headed up to Glasgow for the Scottish Fashion Awards. As I sit here writing this in my beautiful hotel room I can’t help but feel that this whole experience has been pretty surreal so far. My day got off to a distinctly unglamourous start as I slept through my alarm and had to leg it to Hammersmith tube station in the pouring rain. Naturally I cheered up big time once I got to the airport as Heathrow Terminal 5 is hands down my favourite place to fly from – Starbucks, Itsu, Mulberry… Need I say more? – and once I boarded the plane, my levels of over excitement peaked. Apparently half the industry was on that flight and from my seat I could spy David Gandy, Brix Smith Start, Tali Lennox and most in the In Style team to name but a few. By this point, I hseriously regretted having not worn make up but it was so darned early when I left my flat I just couldn’t face it. Once we touched down in Glasgow my fellow awards attendees and I were herded, school trip style, through arrivals and to a fleet of waiting Mercedes which ferried us to the majestic Blythswood Hotel. Like I said, surreal, and it’s only got more so. After checking in, ordering room service and polishing off the welcome snacks I headed down to the Swarovski “style suite” to get my hair and makeup done and choose a few bits of bling to wear tonight. Given that I’ve got a couple of hours until we hit the red carpet I should probably try to do something productive but frankly, I’m going to spend it trying on my gorgeous outfit Holly Fulton ensemble and prancing around my room instead. Here are a few snaps from the glamourous goings on at Blytheswood Square Hotel so far…
