Channel 4, The Unusual Suspects & Unicorns

Recent hijinks in London apart from my birthday celebrations include a Channel 4 networking event called The Unusual Suspects at their HQ in Scotland Yard...

*James bond theme tune*

Not really. It is very nearby though! The night consisted of a panel session and some good old fashioned networking and I loved every minute of it! I got to hear and meet some really inspirational people from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 corporations and get an insight into what it's like to work in media & broadcasting - in a nutshell, lots of fun but bloody hard work!

Hello to Colin, Simon and Grivas from C4, Simon, Don Kong and Isma from the Beeb and Marsha and Luke from ITV. Lovely to meet you all! Also giving a shoutout to my fellow Commercial Marketeers, Katie and Kieran :)

In other news...
I had my first mince pie and broke in my new Topshop Unicorn Jeans. Ace.

GEISHA GETS HER HAIR CUT ft. Klassi Hair, Chiswick

As you can observe from the picture below, my hair was getting rather straggly and shapeless as a result of a terrible hair cut I'd had in the summer where the hairdresser had a rather interesting approach to his cutting technique (two words: Fruit Ninja).

I decided to give an independent hair salon, Klassi Hair in Chiswick, a try as I was fed up of using chain salons and always being disappointed by their inability to understand Asian hair.


What a pleasant surprise! Astonished by their sparkling interior, chilled ambience and friendly vibes, I had a relaxing hair massage & wash followed by a chat with Joong, my lovely hair guru, about what I wanted...

What I wanted was a little trim to make everything the same sort of length to achieve a neat, tidy and healthy result and Joong, with his Korean background, understood exactly what to do with my slightly wavy asian hair and generally lacklustre locks.

A casual request for a cuppa brought forth this tray of goodies, beautifully presented and carefully thought out. Two types of biscuits?! This is my kinda salon.

Et voila! The finished result.

The necklace featured in both pictures is a birthday present that I have been wearing non-stop (obviously). It's a gorgeous and simple necklace with a "Z" charm from Links of London.


I'm so happy and relieved to have finally found my perfect hairdresser! If you fancy a change from your usual hairdresser or are on the lookout for someone new, I'd definitely recommend Klassi Hair. The name may be slightly naff but the service is great and I'm so pleased with my haircut.
