Well hello there, my little coven!
My goodness, it has been a hectic week for Ms. Pudding. I’m sorry to be getting my posts out so late but between my day job and my other little adventures, it’s hard to find the time to write it all down…Those that follow me on social media may be aware of a few events I’ve recently as featured stories on my social channels (If you don’t follow me, you must! I’m hilarious) but I felt the below deserved its very own write up, so that I could share it with you all, as I think it has something for everyone. PR can make you jaded at times, so it’s lovely when you get involved with something that warms your heartstrings.
Speaking of strings….
I had a great time at the fabulous launch night of the guitarwrist pop-up store on Carnaby Street. The event was opened by the always wonderful KT Tunstall, who got to cut the guitar string rather than a ribbon – I loved that extra little touch…and I think we can all agree that the name “The guitarwrist” is on point as well!
Over 150 international celebrated musicians and bands have donated strings to this project and a wide range of charities will benefit. The fabulous Emma Hedley designed the jewelry from a varied collection of artists such Chrissie Hynde to Pendulum. The full list of musicians is located on their site. The best part of all is that 90% of all profits go to the charities involved. Now, I have been to many “charity” launches but this one is as legitimate as it can get – Well done the Guitarist team, being charitable never looked or felt so good.
The shop at 2 Newburgh Street, W1F 7RD will be open 7 days a week until the end of 31st January. So make sure to stop by if you’re in the area and you can follow the team over on their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. #theguitairwrist. Prices start from as little as £40, so accessible for every music fan and perfect for Christmas presents and stocking fillers (I’ve already circulated my preferred pieces to my loved ones…mwahaha!) If you do drop by, let me know, as I’d love to hear your thoughts but not to worry if you can’t as they have a swanky website for those who can’t visit Carnaby Street this Christmas season, so you can still get a unique little piece of your favourite artists memorabilia of your very own no matter where you are – www.guitarwrist.com
I was invited to the event by the Queen of PR, Susie Howard, (Entitled as such, by myself!) whom I worked with on the David Bowie, Fame, Fashion, and Photography exhibition last year. It was a great turn out, and I will make sure to include the guitarwrist party snaps in my “bunny about town” post, which is coming out over the weekend.
Anyway, I am about to pop out again into the cold and commute into Soho this evening. I am not looking forward to it one bit as the temperature has certainly dropped the past few days. As a Nothern lass, I have shamefully become far too spoilt by this Southen weather! Let’s pray it doesn’t snow….surely, I am not alone in my winter weather loathing? The only upside to winter is the excuse to wear dazzling coats more often….*grumble grumble* until next time –
