A few weeks ago, on a wet and windy September day I headed into London to assist Sienna X’s Brand Ambassador, Carly Hobbs at a press event which was being held at Sienna X’s PR Agency, which is just off Oxford Street.
For me, there is just something about London that I love, the hustle and bustle, the sights and the fact that you are never far away from a coffee shop! Anyway I digress, as I got off the tube at Tottenham Court Road, the offices were just a short walk away (luckily the rain had stopped, so at least I wouldn’t arrive, looking like a drowned rat)
After arriving at the offices, I was greeted by Lily, who works for the PR agency. Soon after, Carly arrived and we went went downstairs to the tanning suite. It was beautifully set up full of products and Carly began to run through the schedule for the day.
Appointments started at 2pm and would run through until 7pm. We would be tanning members of the press, magazine editors, beauty bloggers and more.
The day absolutely flew by and before I knew it, it was 7.00pm! I’d had the best day talking all things tanning and helping the press to glow, the Sienna X way! It was time to get packed up and head back to Waterloo for the journey home.
As I walked back to the tube station, I couldn’t help but have a huge smile on my face! This day had been something I’d been wanting to do for so long in more ways than one…
For those of you who know me, you’ll know that one of my fears is the underground (sorry I’m going to rephrase that, WAS one of my fears!) It had always freaked me out, for one thing, the escalators are almost vertical and secondly, I’ve always had a fear of being lost by myself, having no clue how to get back.
When I say it out loud, it sounds so ridiculous. I know hundreds of people do it every day, you may even be one of them, who literally jump on and off the tube and don’t even think about it. But for me, the story was different, However, I faced my fear and did it anyway! Sometimes you’ve just got to pull up your sparkly big girl pants, believe in yourself and do these things, right? Right!
So, in more ways than one, this will be a day that I’ll never forget! A huge thank you to Sienna X, Carly and B The Agency for having me!
Until next time, be brave and embrace every opportunity (even if it makes you want to pee your pants)!
