When Chrissie Met Jack

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling

Friday morning of the Blog Awards and I threw everything into an overnight bag, from a toothbrush to a giant turquoise, sequinned  mermaid dress (I always pack light, because during my time in LA, I moved constantly. I hated having to carry everything with me and learnt to leave things behind, whilst always knowing that the lighter you packed, the quicker you could get away if you needed to. 🙂 )

Anyhow, I dashed to the train station and went from Doncaster to Kings Cross. It literally was a *whizz* of a train, but I’m used to travelling at a moments notice and what could be better than doing so with a much appreciated free gin and tonic and the Geordie announcement man, who kept telling really shit, yet excellently inappropriate jokes, that could’ve got him fired.

‘If you’re getting off at Peterborough…and GOD KNOWS why any of you would want to be getting off or going there…’ 🙂

Lol. Fuck it! You only live once!

That’s why I love travelling Virgin. It’s always so fun and you don’t actually have to be a virgin to the ride it. Who knew? 😉

So, most of the fellows who were headed to the UK Blog Awards that night, only had the Blog Awards to tend to. Lucky. I had two phone meetings on a train, a hotel business proposal, some guy trying to make me sign up to a reality show that I don’t want to do and then my delicious meeting the CEO of Yourfeed UK, Mr. Jack Parsons. (Look above. That’s him.)

So, let me tell you about Jack…Jack Parsons had asked to see me. The summons had come via Twitter and I was excited about it all, from the get go. It was a week after I had spent some time with Steve Bartlett at Social Chain (I was on the Everyday Steve Vlog) and after we fizzled through *busy* schedules, Jack and I managed to ‘diary in’ Friday April 21st for a meeting. I was kitty pumped. He’d read a lot about me and i’d read a lot about him…so I knew that tinkering through the busy London streets in my burnt orange (which was salmon) dress, my tippy tappy Gina heels, Little Mistress Faux Fur and rose gold clutch…was worth it. I had such an easy ride up there, so I knew that the meeting was going to be AMAZING. (I always judge how well my meeting will go, by the physical/emotional ‘temperature’ of my journey to it.  I couldn’t have had an easier journey AND my body was absent of wine. 🙂 )

I LOVE THAT DURING THIS BLOG MY LITTLE BURMESE MOTHER HAS WALKED INTO MY HOME, DASHED UPSTAIRS WITH EXCITEMENT AND JUST HANDED ME A PEN…

‘Look!!! Have you seen my SPERM PEN!!’

Lol. It’s a biro that has pretend sperm swimming in it, with the words ‘Happy Swimmers‘ printed upon it. And you all wonder why I’m might be mentally fucked? Haha! I love it. In her defense, she IS a sexual health Doctor…meaning a pen of that sort really is ‘the norm.’ Kinda like a diamond encrusted ‘bullet’ would be a regular fixture in my version of Wunna land. (Sorry, I’m getting a flashback of ‘Double B‘ telling me the story of how she once bought a ‘bullet’ got so excited and used it so incredibly madly, that she got ‘all the thrush.’ Lol. DYING!)

Shit. I’ve got distracted. I arrived in London. Platform 4? Everyone kept glaring at me. I checked into my hotel and took the easiest journey to 247 Tottenham Court Road to see Jack at Yourfeed UK, on what felt like the loveliest, most unstressful day ever.

Jack is one of the youngest and most inspiring CEO’s in Britain. (I seem to be meeting a lot of them recently, don’t I! You meet everyone for a reason)

He’s only 23…

Jack: ‘But I look fifteen…’

So Jack is currently being hailed as ‘The Prime Minister of The Millennials’ and a ‘Young Richard Branson.‘ Dashing titles aren’t they? Not bad for an inspiring, non smoking, non drinking, easy going, 23 year old CEO. But yes, he is on a big mission to connect 2 million young people to opportunities by 2010. It’s a HUGE challenge, but he’ll do it. I’ve never met a more SAVVY guy, who’s only 23 flipping three! And i’m not joking. I would never just say it. This guy knows everything he needs to know…and goes for it, with passion, skill and this confidence that proceeds him, yet it’s sponged in a humble kindness.

This Summer he is also doing a big ‘on the road’ Pledge tour…I want to be part of that! I’m in the mood to inspire…He totally said I could be. Booyah! *Wiggle Wink.*

Yet, at 1pm as I sat in what looked like a fun waiting room, with MTV playing on a wall mounted TV screen behind me, all the snazzy coffee machines infront of me, business reads on my lap, a ‘table footy’ thing to my right and variously placed giant cacti, surrounding a sign that read ‘HAVAS MEDIA GROUP..’ by lifts…there was a peace, a calm…a really positive, qiuet energy.

‘Hey, I’m Jack.’

(Holds out his hand.  Confident. Positive. Direct. Warm. I look up, stand up, shake his hand with a smile and follow him walking…)

‘Nice to meet you. Do I sound really common?’

‘Haha. No. I’m from Essex…’

‘I love Essex, It’s so bouji now. 😉 ‘

And that’s how it began…

He walked me to through the offices, whilst offering me a drink and led me to HIS office,

‘This is my gaff..’

…which had a fun brick wall, the word YOURFEED written in emojis and a naked Homer Simpson picture in the corner. Was he naked? Can’t remember? 🙂

A cuppa tea and a water were brought in…and life was great!

Straight away without fear, he sits back in his chair, grabs a black note book and pen and starts asking me direct questions, about my life…as he takes notes…and I loved that about him. He got straight to it. We’re both very different. Yet both dynamic and inspiring in our own special ways. He’s a lot more business savvy than I am. He’s real, he’s insightful, he’s inspirational and honest. He doesn’t wear a watch, he keeps things simple, knows how to work a crowd, build a crowd and is the most down to earth human ever.

HE LITERALLY KNOWS EVERYONE. All the most important people in all the land and they respect him for all that he has achieved and all that he is continually doing. He’s someone who CARES about what you’re doing…He’s a ‘tell it as it is’ kinda guy and is the first person in a REALLY LONG TIME, when it comes to business, to turn around, give up his time and offer to help me because he believes in me, finds Wunna Land interesting and just felt like helping someone…and for nothing in return, other than sharing his knowledge.

That’s special isn’t it! You don’t get that these days. Trust me. I know! Not only is that kind, but it’s also very clever…;)

Jack: ‘Now, I read that you don’t like really long winded stories…so I’m gonna cut it down and just hit the bullet points.’

( I liked that!)

He asked me about my story and we talked about my time in LA.

Jack: ‘What did you learn from living in LA?’

Me: ‘I learnt to hustle. It’s a town packed with the most determined and ambitious people in the world…and you have to figure out a way to get noticed, be talented and be able to get what’s yours! YET still be emotionally strong. I learnt everything I know about anything…in Hollywood, because I lived it.’

(And I did! I stiletto pounded that pavement. I worked. I hustled. I bustled. I modelled. I acted. I fell in love. Out of love. I lived!! Oh did I LIVE! But I began MY BLOG and wrote simply out of the love of expression…which 10 years later…would MAKE ME.)

He smirked. Sat back and with an..

‘I like you…’

He threw his his note book down on a desk..

‘I’m not taking notes anymore…’

and told me his story, where it all began, where it was now and where it was going to be headed, as he soon heads his passion Stateside, after championing the UK.

And from that moment on we just bonded, we just got along and work wise it felt great. It was a laugh. We chatted about everything. His work. My work. The work of other people. We laughed about it all. Laughed about ourselves. We told each other stories and HOW I DIDN’T TAKE GEORGE SAMPSON’S VIRGINITY and I called him ‘Royal’ as that’s how I expected him to be..

‘Royal? What do you even mean?’

‘Like a member of the Royal family! lol’

We pissed ourselves laughing.

But I was ASTOUNDED by how much this young guy knew about his world and business. I LEARNT SO MUCH IN AN HOUR AND A HALF  and i’m really not joking. It was genuinely one of the most helpful and inspiring meetings that I have had in…EVER! He’s that good! You would be astonished. I liked how savvy he was. I liked that he just looked at me, pissed himself…and liked me anyway. Lol.

But yes, he’s running Yourfeed UK. He has started a really great Vlog also. It’s real, it’s fun and simply excelling. I’ve started to really love Vlogs as they’re the future reality tv shows. I film the advert for my Vlog shortly…and can’t wait to start mine.

Jack: ‘Right, book back in my diary for again and i’ll help you…’

I’ve never met a more helpful business guy? I love people who I can learn from and we in that hour and a half, discussed so many ways where in which we could develop and improve chrissiewunna.com, into the ‘big time.’

He’s one of those business guys who follows through on his word. He stressed that to me confidentially.

‘If i say something to you. I will follow through with it… ALWAYS.’

I was bamboozled by how smart Jack was….and I respect him for that.

That was a great fucking meeting…I absorbed so much. I want to go on his Summer Tour.

Jack: ‘Can I just ask you something?’

Me: ‘Yeah…’

Jack: ‘You know you bought Steve that Gucci hat….

Me: ‘Yeah it was cool because i had written a blog about how it got to him and then he did a vlog, which showed the gift arriving on his desk..in real life…’

Jack: ‘Did you get you anything back, like he said he would…?’

I’d never really thought about it until then…but it stuck in my mind, as I left the office, *cuddled and cheek kissed* Jack a farewell…and then dashed back across London, back to my hotel to chill for a few hours, after a few drinks and a Mexican late lunch. I watched Real Housewives of New York and was reunited with my passion for Bethany Frankel. (My FAVE housewife of all time.)

Then I watched ‘Dinner Date’ which reminded me of my ‘Swirl.’ I can’t seem to watch it effectively without wanting to hear his banter beside me.

I used my chill time wisely, before slipping into my dress and heading to the UK Blog Awards…

I look forward to my next meeting with Jack…It was a really useful and insightful time…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shooting Blanks…..

Hi, you darling beasts of life! I’ve had an amazing day, just ‘hokey cokeying’ to my own version of life, with a smile on my face and a giddiness in my heart. I haven’t got anything but soul today and boy does it feel good.

‘Double B’ finally got her first house today and ‘Fairytale Blond’ officially moved in with her Prince Jonny. Everyone’s falling in love right before my very eyes…I mean look at Mel and ‘Her Gary.‘ And ‘Firmonnell’ and Lynne with their ‘love at first sight’ marriages.

And then there’s me….

Well i’ll tell you, that my ‘swirl’ has made me feel GREAT. I’m excited to get my little kitty hands on what i will refer to as MINE 🙂 and keep my little kitty heart open. It’s weird because i’m sensual and bubbled over with sexuality by nature, yet soft by heart…so i’m gentle when it comes to the art of romance. I never understand it when people are incapable to just love or express love? I find it odd? As I’m the complete opposite. So, yeah.. I don’t have that problem…YIPPEEE and well my ‘swirl,‘ who makes me *BEAM* (WHAT A MAN) and  zooms me into light years of giddiness…doesn’t either. We can chat about anything, anytime and always. It’s easy. To me, in my life….that’s vital. He just has this remarkable ability to make me feel so happy and excited without trying.

But that’s not what this blog is about…

This blog is about filling in the blanks…You’re all asking me a bunch of questions that I can’t at all get through because they’re coming into my inbox, like little greedy hobbits on happy pills. I’ve been doing blog promo all morning and so I figured that I’d *jiggly* out the answers to all your questions, in one merry *shoot out.*

Let’s go…I’ll fill in the blanks

My favourite thing to snack on…….is always something savory over something super sweet. I’ll munch through a bag of crisps before i’d ever contemplate a choccie bar. But i’m known to enjoy a wasabi pea nibble and I always chew gum. All of the time. 

When I workout, .………I never workout. I hate working out. I should work out. I just don’t have it in me. I’m naturally active anyway and well it seems to burn the cocktails off. 😉 

The funniest piece of lingerie I own……….I adore themed outfits and I LOVE a bit of ‘dress up’ in the bedroom. It’s fun. It’s sexy. Yet, the funniest piece of lingerie I own, is a ribbon stringed, crotchless thong…THAT HAS A BOBBLY BUNNY TAIL SEWN ON IT. Lol. I haven’t worn it yet. But well, who knows when i might need to bunny hop onto a willy in a moment of passion? Why am I a tool???

My favourite type of music…..I love all music. I usually play what’s currently on the radio. I fancy a bit of motown, pop, hip hop…I love a bit of a singalong and a dance off on most occasions.

I definitely love…..DRINKING.

To unwind I………..always want a MASSAGE. GOD! They are my favourite. Give me one…and i’ll adore you. Unless you’re that horrid crazy Chinese woman in Camden who tried to kill me to pan pipe music with a smile on her face and a really boney elbow. You’re a bitch. 🙂 

Party or Chill?………………..CHILL. I love to feel relaxed. Yet I love a cocktail bar….and I’ll stay out and have a blast. But you’d never find me trailing around a club at 7am in the morning, praying for a kebab with my heels in my hand. I’d rather be waking up at that time and being spooned by a Knight in shining armour, who’s telling me to make him a brew.

The worst thing about me…………I can be an ego maniac…but i’m soft.

Best thing about me…….I’m playful. I’m positive. I’m funnier than you think. I love a laugh. 

Favourite Makeup……….Estee Lauder.

I also love……Surprises.

I don’t like.……..Bad manners

I do like.…….Luxury

This year….I’ll smash my career and stilleto stamp my mark in cyberland.

This year……..I hope to fall madly in love and have that other human feel the same way also. 

The most inaccurate statement ever made about me..……..Well…most of it’s true. But i’m a grown up now. Lol.

Ps/ Whatsapp from Mel..

‘You missed a good one for the blog today. I told Dipper that he looked like Mr Bean. He said he always gets called that and he can ALSO DO THE DANCE. LOL!!!!!!!’

 

We Made It to Wednesday…..

I had to ‘write off’ Monday. It was hilarious. Let’s just say that Sunday afternoon in Leeds was filled with really sunny afternoon gin and tonics. Doubles. I had a blast as I met up with Lil’ Miss Laura Bartlett, who owns House of Coco Magazine…but i’ll tell you about that later, when i’ve pulled my glitzy self together…as so much fun went on… but yes…I found myself the next morning, feeling ROUGH, sat in a warm roomed meeting, propped up against a door and a wall….trying to strain my eyes open…and every time I closed them DURING the meeting Lol…I’d sort of *SHOCK* myself up and my fave chick ‘Firmonnell’ would be directly in my eye line PISSING HERSELF LAUGHING. (Oh Tuesday, I got my own back, as I watched both Firmonnell & Hustle Barbie do their *yawny* versions of life through the first meeting of the day.)

Double B: ‘Wow! You look like shit. I know whenever you feel rough cos your eyelashes go really tiny…’

Me: ‘Yeh. I’m just gonna have to get through the day… I don’t know how i’m gonna get through the day…?’

But FUCK IT…I DID! I did it! I’m a trooper and i’m not one to let the side down. I picked my sassy little self up, embraced the utter feeling of shitness. I made sure everyone new my state of existence…and without a clue, I muscled through..with a lucozade and really sore eyes. The fact is…I DID IT. Call me Lazy? Call me ‘BOSSING IT’ dolls.

As soon as I got home, I slow motion toppled into a warm bubble bath and went straight to bed, in a happy, naked, mist of bliss.

I’ve needed to rest, hence why I haven’t been able to blog. Yet, I’m feeling much better now. I kinda just need a massage and  bra that doesn’t seem to kill. That’s make me happy. Nothing is worse than a knackered girl, as it takes our ‘glam’ away from us. That’s why rest and recuperation is vital to any glamour pusses schedule. 🙂 I’m still in my pj’s, but i’ve put on a set of  heels anyway, simply to feel feminine again and because flats make you feel awkward. Comfy. But frumpy. Hahah! (I’ll grow up some day. Honest! Can we do Prosecco for breakfast?)

Tuesday…all about work. My chick friends and I have JUST BEEN WORKING. It’s been a head down and hustle, through the bustle. There’s not even ups or downs…just stress and work. Lol. I mean, we didn’t get to banter about much else, but work…Other than the fact that ‘Hustle Barbie’ got called a slut when she was in a black sophisticated trouser suit (lol), after returning from Poland where she trapped herself in a creepy house that she found on the internet with friends, for kicks. It was pitch black…part of the wonderful ‘things you can do here…’ rosta, and she got chased around a scary house, by a guy in a wheelchair, who stood up and ran at her with a chainsaw.

‘Chrissie! I was so scared that I even fell over in the pitch black and ended up having to grab some Polish boys balls to heave myself back up in fear.’

Fuck ‘Hustle Barbie’s’ fear. That Polish boy had the best time ever.

She’s such a slut. 🙂

On the up…Fairytale Blond is moving into her new home, with her new man, with ‘getting the keys and everything‘ on Thursday. Awww! I’m sure Fairytale babies will be made, behind their Fairytale white picket fence and she can’t wait. She has butterflies. Mel and I have instructed her to have sex on every counter and corner of the home. She should probably borrow Firmonnell’s sex step. Saying that…they’re all on diets now, so they’re gonna need all the steps the can get. Mel’s diet is great. She’ll eat anything she wants and then say..

‘What? I’ve brought melon…it’s fine…It counteracts it.’

Double B is also en route to her new home. She is awaiting the go ahead on ‘here’s your keys‘ and when she gets them…she will have a sassy CRY and simply because unlike ‘Fairytales’ her journey has been very stressy….very dramatic…and very Double B’y. Yet their journey to getting the same thing has been UTTERLY DIFFERENT…However, what matters is that the BOTH got to the finish line with the winning result that they wanted. It doesn’t matter how you get there…Just get there. If the roads bumpy..strap in and embrace it. If it’s smooth…*Glide Baby, Glide.*

But then that just leaves me…

I have the biggest rest of April ahead of me, as I head into investment, the beginning of the Vlog and with a final glamourous clatter to the month at the UK Blog Awards, which is on the 21st. I’d say i’m on my promo for that..yet when they’ve already chosen the winner…you don’t really need to promo too much? However, i’m excited and honoured. Can’t wait to be there! I couldn’t be more grateful.

I also have a meeting early in the afternoon on the day of the blog awards with Jack Parsons, who owns Yourfeed UK. I’m looking forward to meeting him, as again, he’s done very well for himself and his company. I’m happy that he requested to see me…and well tottering through his offices seems like it would be a blast.

However, let me tell you I AM IN A SWIRL. GOD! This is the biggest SWIRL I have ever experienced in my ENTIRE time on this little disco Earth ball. This guy is making me feel like i’m on top of  the TOP of the WORLD. Through the busy days, the resting, the work load, the stress, the good times..the everything…he just has this ability to make me *beam* from ear to ear and have my little kitty soul light up with laughter, excitement but a peaceful happiness. He’s my perfect! I can’ t help but adore him. How could I not?

Yet, there’s something about this ‘swirl’ as it’s not just any swirl…it’s a solid swirl. It’s a secure, solid swirl. There’s a stability to it. I feels good. No. It feels great. This guy…and this is after actually us getting to know one another…is my dream man.

Right now…I feel like a very lucky girl…

 

 

 

 

Actual Crazy, Hollywood, Amaze Balls…

I am have the most smashing LIFE time EVER! I’m feeling GREAT! I’m sort of just taking a chill from all things too ‘social media,’ yet not for long, as I live and breathe it…I mean a couple of days…However, it’s enough for me to take a second to just get on with the ‘norm’ of my daily work and secretly CELEBRATE. 🙂

Yes! You heard! I am about to head into the most DELICIOUSLY AMAZING APRIL EVER and what i’ve learnt from life, is that before the sexy storm begins, you just have to take a moment and enjoy a victory *wiggle wink.* JUST SAYIN’! And that..I am!

I’m still busy. But i’m beaming.

I can’t tell you much about my April. But I can tell you, that I have some of the most wonderful events coming up, some divine brands ready to be *winked* in Wunnaland AND the UK blog Awards next month, which if you didn’t know…I’m a finalist of. I won’t win it. But i’ll certainly be there. It’s such a great honour and it’s almost one tick on my ‘dreams come true’ list. I’m SO grateful for all the support I have from ym friends and family. I mean, GOD, my Mum is always very..

‘You don’t have to win it, to win in the end…and ya Dad and I KNOW that you win in the end..’

HOW SWEET! How Lucky am I!!

But do also know, that Wunna land is not silly enough to not go, as it will be the greatest networking event ever. I might not win the trophy, but i’ll smash the ‘social’ banter…

More exciting news…*Wait whilst i take off my waist shaper and air throw/ mouth catch a few *Popaballs* (Google them) I start a Vlog shortly…AND IT’S AMAZING. I’m still blogging, as that’s what I do. And it seems i must do it well? Yet now, you will be TREATED to real life episodes of chrissiewunna.com. And Wunna Land is SO fun that you’ll either piddle with laughter or die with shock….which is a ‘stunned’ way of creaming embarrassment.

HOWEVER WAIT! Due to me coming from a Reality TV background, it seems that if I truly wanted I could actually sample my hand at Vlogging, by just skipping it and whipping Wunna land life out on the actual telly. I KNOW! This is where ‘who you knows’ matters! So make you connections But prove yourself. I was obviously years ago on ‘Paris Hiltons British Best Friend’ on ITV2, and one of their focal characters. It s the same people who read a Tweet, where in which I said,

‘Looking for Videographers/Editors’

…who immediately shimmied into my inbox.

I will also so, that hundreds of Videographers filled my inbox…and i’m still going through you all, yet I pretty much know who i’m going to use,

Yet, it’s great. As i’m still doing an episodic vlog and it certainly won’t be lame. 🙂 And I’m feeling so *pumped* about it right now, as one of my LA besties, has just got his movie commissioned and it is currently, this second being produced and filmed….and this is no low budget ‘try out…’ it’s a big ass movie and IT HAS MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY IN IT. He sent me a snap of his ‘Directors Chair’ today. It made me smile. 🙂 He was GIDDY! It’s Matt!

Image may contain: one or more people and people sitting

YET HE TOLD ME THIS…

‘Chrissie…you’ve got it. Don’t let anyone out there make you think that they’re better than you in your niche, because they’re NOT. You’ve got ‘it’ MAJOR, you grew up LA style and the cream always rises to the top. I’ve known you forever, as friends, as…y’know..;) …I read ya blog every day….and something just tells me that you’re on to smashing great things..’

‘Can I be in you next movie dude?’

‘As if you thought you even had to ask. 🙂 ‘

But yes, it may seem that I’m on a chill, yet it’s actually quite the opposite. i’m just celebrating life with the people that I *heart* and on a day to day basis getting my very normal ‘work’ on. *Pout.*

I’ve had some ace conversations today. So ace that now i’ve had nearly a bottle of red wine, I can’t remember them? Here are some snippets…

‘Yeah it’s much sexier if you say your girlfriends from Mauritius and not Hull.’

‘The filth drawers getting empty…’

‘Did you know that the fried eggs from Haribo are actually meant to be UFO’s’

‘Shut up dickhead. They’re fried eggs. That makes no sense, as why would they make UFO’s fried egg coloured.’

‘Just be awful to me Chrissie, I can’t stand it when you’re nice to me. It makes me blush and feel awkward. I’m the youngest of six. I come from a piss take family. We don’t do compliments…’

‘I’m losing the will to live here..’

‘I need a filling!’

‘Are these pear drops apple?’

This year, I am going to smash it…and for the first time in ages, I feel as though i actually know what i’m doing.

For the first time in ages, I actually KNOW that I know what i’m doing and i feel juiced!

So yes, I’m gonna work, cocktail and enjoy life for the rest of this merry March and then….

Oh Dollies…Wunna Land is going to *rev* shit up…and smashed the most glamorous ‘bastards’ out of ya’ll. *Giggles*

Kisses…

Chrissie x

ps/ I’m leaving you with this song, as it is firstly my 3 year old son’s CURRENT FAVORITE SONG and because Maroon  5, used to be my ‘across the balcony’ neighbours. They told me one night, when we were all really pissed, that their band would make it big. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I got trashed on tequila and cried over a boy as the drummer carried me to my apartment….

 

 

 

 

Busy, Prosecco, Stress Winks

Today was BUSY! Like so busy, that I just let myself blissfully *drown* into the hefty depths of ‘work load,’ that was dragging bundles of ‘catch up’ and was smeared in a sticky gloss of have to‘ instead of ‘want to.

YIPPEEE! Hugs for everyone! Mondays! Yeah! Yeah!

I definitely had moments where waving a flag of *surrender* seemed jolly, easy and satisfying. Lol. Wait? Did I use ‘blissfully’ earlier?’

*REWIND* No really…Back up 

Oops, I did. I take that back…Sorry..I meant, ‘shit.’ 🙂 However, now, that I’ve gracefully guzzled a glass of gifted Prosecco..I will say that, i’m finding it funny. Funnier that it was during the moment?

I think i’m just someone who likes to be on top of everything. So if i’m feeling a little behind, or a little…well whatever…. i’m rambling on…Let’s just say, my mind is currently full of other things right now. Things that I love. It’s bubbling over with a sexy creativity. I’m juiced. I’m excited. But sort of feeling as though muddling through the ‘have to,’ is cutting down the time that I need to dedicated to the ‘want to.’  Like, I have 3 press releases and a bunch of brand proposals, that I need to type up and send off and it’s been A WEEK so far and I STILL haven’t managed to find the time to do it! UGH! I’ve got a goal and i’m gonna get there…I’m gonna get there…

Rant over. *Pours another prosecco.*

But, I’m feeling positive. I’m looking forward to the future.

Y’know, I watched an old acquaintance literally FALL out of a bar at 4pm today, with a drunk face of ‘lost’ imprinted on her soul…

‘Heeeey. Chriiiisssssie….How are you…?’

I just smiled, watched past and got on with life. My head was too busy at that point. Plus, when i was her age, I was in LA, trying to make a dream come true, whilst working a ‘full timer’ at a big talent agency. I was never  actually the ‘falling out of the bar‘ girl. I guess, I’m just seen ‘wild,’ as I’ve obviously decorated my past with bucket loads of poured all over ‘colour’ 🙂 …but i’m honestly a lot more together than you would imagine. I’m charming. I’m clever. I’m more FUN, than I am lost. They are two very different things. I’m a girl who knows my way and where i’m headed. (Even when pissed. 😉 )

My fun streak is punctuated and glittered in a cheeky sophistication. So yeah, it made me feel bad when I saw her tumble out of a bar in the middle of the day…But honestly not too bad, as I just fucked it off and walked by without a care! LOL. *So loveable.*

Today was so busy, I didn’t even get to banter with my chickadees. I mean, I don’t know what’s going on with Mel and her ‘love swirl.’ It’s almost ‘Firmonnell’s’ birthday and I don’t even know how she’ll celebrate it. ‘Fairytale blond’….How’s Prince Jonny?? It’s getting ‘cray cray’ like that. And I’m one to think that if you’re around people closely…you should know about their lives and what’s going on with them. I mean, we can’t even schedule ONE evening out because…

‘I can’t do the 3rd…

‘I’m away that weekend…’

‘I’ve got drinks on the 18th…’

‘I’m at a baby shower then…’

Yet, it’s great because at least we’re busy women of the world. We’re all very different, but we’re glamourous chicks, who are making our lives worth it…We all want to do well and you’re in good company when you all have diary pages filled with ‘full,’ yet are still really close regardless. That’s magic.

But I’m definitely sure ‘Double B’ told me to ‘Fuck off’ again after slaying out *daggers* for kicks. I love her *daggers* they’re stroppy and delightful all in one. She’s literally the most hilarious human know.

‘I need to stop washing my hair in Purple shampoo & have you seen that picture of us all…my legs are darker than Chrissie’s.’

‘You look pale today…’

‘Yeah I just like to surprise you all, by being completely pastey and then POPPING UP out of nowhere with a crazy Chrissie tan..’

I’m sure she then forced me to talk to Chinese strangers and agreed that she liked me in my  kitten curled specs..

I liked it but ignored her to make fun of ‘Hot Sarah’ for once almost  being forced to dedicate her time to performing to the art of ‘Being Britney Spears,’ by some weird guy, who had pink satin sheets and dressers filled with Chanel.

‘As if you’re not wearing the headset! Wear the fucking headset!’

‘Why am I *Hot Sarah* in your blog? I want a different name…’

Away from all the Tom Foolery… *Pours another prosecco*

I want to go see SPOOKY SUE! She’s our local psychic and well MEL (who had to bags of jellies) says that she was rummaging through old ‘at home’ paperwork and she came across a scrap piece of paper that had things scribbled down on it, from one particular reading. She mentioned a few things, but on this paper she had written the name ‘GARY’ and underlined!

A year on…(and remember that Mel’s been single for three whole years with no ‘love swirl’ at all..) LET ME TELL YOU…the guy she is currently dating is actually called ‘Gary.’ WTF! Can you even believe that.!!!! I wanna see Spooky Sue! Get me booked in, with bells on!

I don’t have anything else to tell you really, other than I’m watching ‘Lady Shizzle’ drink off a stone with her new Aloe Vera diet, ‘Firmonnell’ wants new brows…I want excitement but i’m feeling fat. I am  also however feeling AMBITIOUS…

The kids? Junior has found a Ladybird and is certainly forcing it to be his new pet. He’s even read it a bedtime story.

‘I love my ladybird mum. I want to break it’s wings so it will never fly away and leave me.‘ LOL. Christ!

Ruby’s in a huff because I won’t let her start a Vlog.

‘I want to start a Vlog and I want Chrissie Wunna in it!’

‘You’re six. Chrissie Wunna?? I’m you’re MUM!’

Anyway, I’m off to wink at my mirror image.

Hopefully tomorrow will be dashed with love and fun!

 

Cue Tune!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gucci Gifting To Bartlett’s Desk

Thank GOD it’s the weekend! I feel like i’ve just rolled off, the busiest week of work EVER and I don’t know what’s hit me. This week was stressy? Is that the right word? I don’t know why? But I was happy that Friday came. I needed to kick back and chill on my throne 🙂 and just watched the world go by for a second.  *Wiggle…Wink.*

I can tell the temperature of my stress, by the amount of wine consumed, once my work week has hit ‘see ya!’ I drank a whole bottle of red to myself, laughed, loved a little, performed a few pretend music videos in my bedroom mirror (you know you’re happy when you’re doing that and you know you’re obviously the fifth member of ‘Little Mix’ when your ‘across from you’ neighbour stops to tell you, that he watches you perform them drunk… from his window. Lol.)

‘Honestly, Chrissie! It’s the highlight of my evening. I love that you see me and don’t even care that i’m watching!’

‘I don’t see you? I’m pissed..’

‘Oh?’

‘Hahaha…now you sound like a pervert. LOL’

Anyway, I’m not here to tell you about my drunk window, ‘Little Mix’ performances.

RIGHT NOW, I’m here to make you rewind a second…

Remember that I visited Social Chain, about 2 weeks ago. I loved it. Didn’t I! I spread the news to everyone like wildfire. I was on my favourite Vlog , with Steven Bartlett…Who is certainly my favourite human.

Remember? Got it? Good!

A week later, I organised and ordered glamourous, fresh cut flowers to be sent to Katie Wallwork at Social Chain, by  ‘Bloom & Wild,’ who are my favourite luxury flower delivery service and she received them on ‘International Womans Day,’ as a ‘Thank you for having me…’ I loved Katie! So I wanted to make her smile.

By nature, i’m quite well mannered (apart from that one time when I threw my wine in this hideous girls face, because she thought she was the cast of ‘Kung Fu Panda’ and was a bit niftier than I with her very manly fisticuffs. A waste of a good, full bodied red, really :))  However,  I’ll also tell you that I DELIGHT in being courteous and even though i’m one of those ambitious ‘Boss It’ kind of ‘Chick festivals,’ with an image that is showered in glitteratti, diamond glares and luxury tinkers…I also LOVE (more than anything) creating moments where in which, even if it’s just for a second, i’ve made someone’s eyes smile and by surprise.

It makes me happy! What? I’m a decent human! Give me trophies (UK BLOG AWARDS. 😉 )

ANNNNYWAY, I ALSO  sent Steven Bartlett a surprise ‘Thank You’ gift…and that gift, I had decided had to be Gucci? (Obviously! Lol.)

Gucci is my favourite luxury brand, because it oozes a timeless, stylish, sophistication, combined with a fun, modern, twist of ‘ooh.’ I ADORE what they’re delivering right now…and HEY, I’m currently appearing in the pages of the ever so High Fashion  Spring Edition of ‘House of Solo’ Magazine, as ‘Social Media’s Newest IT Girl’…Therefore, surely what I say,…goes? 😉 LOL.

But yes, I’m a decent gift giver and so I chose to buy Steve THIS SEASONS ‘Original GG Canvas baseball hat with the traditional webbing design’ in black….BY GUCCI. The cost of it didn’t really matter to me…as once i’ve decided on doing something, I have a one track mind, be it in work, love, ‘Thank You Gifts’...anything really…  that’s it…I’ll commit to it fully and go for it.

So, I told my chick friends that I had bought and ordered the gift from Gucci, as I knew I was on the busiest work week ever…and that I needed it to arrive at his office in Manchester…for AFTER he returned from doing his ‘4 stages in 3 days’ speaking tour. (Like any successful, non creepy chick, 🙂 I stalk his Vlog, so I pretty much have the semi, low down on his work life…Which is obviously super handy, when stalking schedules.)

Now, it was important to me, that it landed on his desk, AFTER the speaking tour, so it felt like a ‘treat,’ after a busy, rushy, ‘he must be shattered’ stretch and at the SAME TIME…It’d make him smile because (like Katie’s Flowers) it would deliver a moment into someones’s world, where in which they knew another human cared enough about them, to be thoughtful. I love ‘Thank you for having me’ gifts…They are my absolute FAVOURITE. And you can’t go wrong with Gucci, as everyone loves a little bit of luxury…I mean I personally picked out what I thought was a great gift for Steve…and yeah, if you know me personally, my choice is VERY ‘Wunna.’

He gets a lot of gifts. But let me tell you about gifts. The most thoughtful gifts, are the gifts that you send people, for NO OTHER REASON, than to TELL THEM that they nare appreciated. You should choose things that YOU THINK they would personally love. I also choose things that I LOVE, as it’s such a good energy to pass on to another.

So, this hat, during my busiest week ever, didn’t just come from the local ‘in your area, if you’re lucky’ Gucci store. Oh no…that would be far to easy…THIS CAP…(and my chick friends will tell you) was FLOWN HALF WAY ACROSS ITALY…through THREE DIFFERENT ITALIAN CITIES, THREE DIFFERENT AIRPORTS, GUARDED BY SECURITY (who I called’ THE GUCCI CAP POLICE’)…DELICATELY SCANNED AT EACH AIRPORT, on arrival and departure AND because I needed to know WHEN this bit of luxury would end up gifted upon Mr Bartlett’s desk…GUCCI gave me HOURLY EMAILED REPORTS of the cap’s whereabouts and journey! Lol.

How amazing is that!! It’s the boujiest ‘tracking service’ ever. I felt like part of an FBI Glam Squad.

I kept chatting to people, but checking my phone, before looking up and then laughing with ‘Hot Sarah…’ and ‘Feisty Gem…’

‘THIS CAP HAS A BETTER LIFE THAN I DO! LOL!’

I’m not evening kidding…IT HAD SECURITY!

But let me give you a picture of events…

Gucci where giving me updates like this…

‘7 March/04.34pm Arrival for Original Scan in Firenze, Italy.’

‘7 March/ 06.32pm Departure Scan/Firenze, Italy.’

‘7 March 07.30pm Arrival Scan,/ Bologna, Italy.’

I recieved updates the entire way through and Wunna Land had got so involved in the ‘Life of Steve’s Gucci Cap’ that monitoring it’s whereabouts became a full time show. THE CAP needed it’s OWN VLOG! *Like & Subscribe here.*

So I KNEW when Steve was going to probably be back at his Manchester office and I also knew when Katie had received her flower delivery as ‘Bloom & Wild’ told me. 🙂 And I tried to schedule them appropriately. So they’d get there at the sameish time.

I was swimming in Wunna land, talking to brands, organizing shoots, verbally abusing my friends in good humour….AS HE was travelling from one event, to the next event, doing interviews , vlogging from taxis and meeting fans, as he tended to his own version of life. We were both going through really busy times….

AND THIS CAP….AS WE WERE DOING LIFE…WAS FLYING THROUGH THE SKIES ABOVE US…. (It’s was like a ‘Social’ James bond Movie.)

Then finally, I scrolled through my phone, as Gucci had alerted me at five o clock in the morning, to let me know that the cap had LANDED at East Midlands Airport in England and was headed to Manchester Airport, to get picked up by the courier and delivered to the Portland Street…by 11.34am. LOL.

I’m NOT JOKING. It was the most BOUJI ‘Charlie’s Angel’s’ operation of absolute glamourousity… EVER!

I mean ALL DAY I was working, working, working and then  plate spinning my own piece of Cyberland, but I constantly had this CAP’s journey churning through my mind. Lol. As soon, as I got the..

‘The Courier has successfully delivered your parcel in Manchester at 11.34am, to 127 Portand Street, for Steven Bartlett.’

There was Wunna land cheering, relief and a suggestion of wine and therapy.

Gucci is SO INCREDIBLY SLICK, they’re amazing. I mean GOD, those updates were DELICIOUSLY FABULOUS…yet SO ‘High Fashion’ intense. 🙂

‘THANK GOD, THE HAT HAS F****** ARRIVED!!!’

I needed 42 GINS after following the panic of it’s journey.

‘Well you would go for the flipping Gucci Hat….FROM ITALY, Wunna!’

‘The flowers were such an easier transfer of appreciation…I should’ve just got him butch roses..’

‘Are you happy?’

‘YEAH!’

‘Cos it’s finally there?’

‘Well…yeah. Ofcourse. BUT it’s mainly because I know that he’ll open the box, see it, not have a clue who it’s from, yet notice that it’s bouji…and his face will light up…He’ll beam…It’ll make him smile…Then he’ll find out that it’s from ME to say ‘Thank you’ and it’ll shock him. That again, will make him smile…But this time HIS EYES WILL SMILE… AND YOU TELL ME WHAT ON THIS ENTIRE EARTH IS BETTER than sending someone a bit of  luxury love, just to say  THANK YOU. It’s classy, with a wild streak. It’s fun. It’s shocking…It’s ME. It’s thoughtful! And thoughtful is the new sexy!’

Now, I don’t know whether you watch Steve’s Vlogs OR if you have managed to cross path’s with Social Chain and all that they do…

But here… Watch the Vlog when my gift from Wunna Land…(and it WAS the biggest operation of luxury cap travelling EVER….) landed on Steve Bartlett’s Manchester Desk…

His Eyes Smile! (Told you. 🙂 Makes me happy!

PLUS, the AWESOME THING ABOUT IT ALL, is the fact that I have a BLOG and he has a VLOG….and this real life ‘Thank You’ gift, travels from my patch of Cyberland to HIS channel of ‘Social’ AND YOU ACTUALLY GET  TO TRAVEL WITH IT….AS WE ACCIDENTALLY DELIVER TWO HALVES OF ONE STORY! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m headed to Social Chain today :)

Wake up! It’s Monday! HURRAH.

Congrats to those of you who took the time to be bothered to get up, get dressed and get your sexy selves to work. You deserve boobie winks for that. (Have no clue what they are?) Bottom line…Without self motivation, you don’t have shit. Well done!

THIS MONDAY, I am the MOST EXCITED that I could EVER BE!! *Happy Dance here.*

And yes, I’m harping on about motivation, and getting a ‘move on,‘ HOWEVER i’m still sat in bra and knickers, with bouncy freshly rollered hair and a pink laptop on my knees….typing away. 🙂 But whatever, i’ve been up since six o clock doing my eye makeup and dressing the children for school. Lol. That alone is a days work.

The best thing about today, is that I DON’T have that shitty Monday morning feeling, I am bubbled over with ‘joie de vivre.’ I could even have a morning Mimosa and do *can can* kicks, if I could find the right music. 🙂 When things make you excited, you are on the right track. Everything is about how something makes you FEEL. Excitement…great feeling.

Today, I am headed to Manchester. I’m actually going to be in Manchester both Monday AND Tuesday, so i’ll be blowing *air kisses* to Yorkshire, as my train leaves the platform for now. I feel rested. I feel glammy…and yeah i’m feeling a bit chubby too, but i don’t care, as I’ve Skinny Tanned…so that helps right. 😉 Everyone is messaging me about wanting a waist trainer. Do it. Love it. Don’t have a ‘filth drawer,’ is my answer to you all. I mean what is sexier than CORSET TRAINING.

But cut all the crap…TODAY… I…. (yes, little glamour puss extraordinaire) HEAD DOWN TO SOCIAL CHAIN in Manchester! I KNOW! How exciting! I could *pop.* (As in ‘burst’ and not as in ‘sing you A1 tracks’ from the 90’s.)

Over the last couple months i’ve talked how much I LOVE Steve Bartlett and his Vlogs. He’s my favourite human. I send out that message ALL THE TIME. I’ve watch his Vlog develop. I’ve been hooked. I’ve watched them on appearances. I’ve watched them in bed. On the loo. I’ve made other people watch them in bars. Lol It’s the kind of Vlog,  (like this blog, ) that you accidentally discover…like treasure. You can come across it at any point of your life journey and when you do….you kinda get hooked and find yourself *tapping* into it all the time. The company & his merry self are pretty much on the route to stardom…

They’ve been on the cover of The Times, filmed for HBO & Vice, Bartlett’s tinkered on a Power List…all sorts… I once Tweeted him, in my orange fox onesie and asked to head on down…(that sounds rude 🙂 ) ….He went with ‘yep,’ and well at 3pm, i’ll be tapping on their door.

This whole Steven Bartlett, Social Chain thing is popular, isn’t it? Everyone seems to be nattering about it. It seems sexy. It seems cool. I’ve actually known that I would be going now… for about a month… I’ve been listening to what people say about the Vlog, reading what they’re writing about it…and i’m smiling…as it’s clever, it’s fun…it’s pretty much a show. It IS a show.

I’m a massive fan of the of it all…the company, the people, the characters, the office…Steve….the slide…the bar…the dogs….their work….THE WHOLE KITTY SHABAM…..so my frillies are in an utter TWIST! I cannot wait!

‘Chrissie don’t wear that….you look like you’ve just walked onto the Vegas strip and not someones office…Lol.’

Mel: ‘Does he do rants? I’m sure I watched a Donald Trump rant on my newsfeed once and then nudged my friend and said that’s who Chrissie watches..’

I guess everything is like a sexy game of Chinese Whispers.

‘I wondered if they’ve actually read your blog’

‘Are you going out afterwards?’

‘The poor sods, don’t even know what they’ve let themselves in for!’

Basically, I’m *tapping* into THEIR world, THEIR Monday and TO ME, it’s so utterly SURREAL because what is MORE BIZARRE than watching a place and a bunch of people..literally every day, without them knowing…and then waking up one Monday morning and finding yourself *zapped* into that exact world. Crazy shit!

OOh! I’ve just got a message from Mel. She sent me a lovely one the other night, as I guess you’d never put us together as people who would end up being close friends…We’ve even shocked ourselves…Lol. But we’re ended up being close and I’ve found that we’re more similar than you’d think. But yes, she told me she ‘loved me.’ :) 🙂 Made me beam!

HAHAHAHAH! Wait!

This message is wishing me well for today and then all about blowjobs!

HAHAHAHA! I LOVE MEL.

Anyway…I’ll be Tweeting, Facebooking and Snapchatting everything and tomorrow there will be a big old blog on it all. So…keep up and add me to everything. Lol.

They’ve already made my Monday better…so hey….

Chick friend:

‘It can only go downhill from here..Hahahah!

WHAT A BITCH.

HAHAHAHA!

(That laugh was fake. 🙂 )

Ps: If you’re so behind on everything and don’t know what I’m talking about…Today you need to make it your mission to find out what Social Chain are…and who Steven Bartlett is….

Happy Monday! x

Cue: Alexandra…..

Busy Days, Inboxes & Video Snapchats

ac33

I’ve had a busy one! Today felt REAL. It felt ‘back to normal.’ It kinda of *zooshed* by.  In fact, the ‘busy’ sprung out of nowhere with a *B’BOOM* and those of you who have followed this blog and entangled your way into my mind, KNOW that I adore a bit of ‘busy,’ I thrive off it and *can can* kick it, like a some kind of ‘Boss’ Queen. I’m excited by the bustle of busy because it puts your worth and talents to use.

YET, there was definitely a moment where in which I was ‘face to face’staring at a ‘Fairytale Blond,’ both of us with a busy phone attached to our ears, having a busy conversation, with other busy people and as every other phone, in what seemed like ALL of the busy land, began to ring non stop! It was crazy! We needed octopus arms, gin, an army or…gin. It was fun…and did I say…busy? 🙂

Good day! Flew by!

But GOD! I should’ve shut my kitty mouth about guys and dating last night on the blog, shouldn’t I! Lol. I’m not sure what happened exactly? But my inbox sizzled up and became full of ‘Let’s go out’s’ and ‘Meet me’s!’ I can’t meet EVERYONE! I didn’t mean I was going on dates with every single stranger with a laptop or iphone thumbs! Lol.

I’m always one to think that  life dances people into your path, who you’re meant to meet. You actually build a rapport together without you knowing and that rapport develops. I don’t find it easy just to meet people I don’t know in REAL life, who have only *typed* at me, unless i’m REALLY into them, OR i’ve really gotten to know them. That’s why it’s better for you to run into me in person, befriend me or send me a video, or a snapchat. Doesn’t that sound so unromantic. Lol. But it’s a new world, a new century, so i might as well just go with it.

PLUS, now that my schedule has busied up (and you can also add babies into this equation) i’m noticing that i’m quite picky because in the time that I have free, I want to make sure i’ve spent it with someone GREAT, if i’m going to. Someone who’s a lot of fun. Or someone’s who’s really inspiring. Or someone who’s hilarious or so interesting i’m hooked. I’m really picky by nature anyway when it comes to love..Some may say ‘shallow.’ 🙂 Shut up ‘Firmmonell! But i’m not fussy ‘picky.’ I’m just ‘know what I want’ picky and that’s really different, as i’m not high maintenance AT ALL. I’m just in such a good place emotionally and in life in general right now, that i’m willing to hold out for someone who’s really right for me. And i’m sure that’s what you all want to for yourselves.

I mean GOD, I already had some sweet guy blow it because he tried to be what he THOUGHT I wanted him to be, instead of just himself. Why do we do that? I’ve done it in the past. I’m guilty as charged. So, i’m not at all ‘finger pointing.’ I’m just glad I don’t do it now. But i understand it completely.

Now listen boys! Rules of dating! If you actually like a girl, a lady…a GLAMOUR PUSS…and you want her to take your advances seriously (and this guy did, as even though I never really replied to him….Every day, he would ask to meet me, or send me a sweet picture of himself with love hearts and ‘Good Mornings’ and stuff of that nature. Never rude. Always normal. Seemingly kind.)

Tonight….he messed up.

This is what you never say to me,

‘Can we be fuck buddies?’ 

After I politely responded with a ‘NO,’ he didn’t then decide to use his brain. He didn’t think to save it with a humour or flattery or anything! He panicked and instead he went with,

‘What? Well it’s not like I want to marry you anything?’

(ALL THE WORST THINGS YOU CAN SAY TO A GIRL. Haha!)

By now, in my head, he’s scribbled himself out of Wunna Land by accident. LOL. So i thought I’d make it worse, because i’m kind 🙂 ….and say,

‘Shame, as i’d be looking for someone who would want to marry me rather than just bone me.’

(Because I know he didn’t mean it… He’s sweet really, but just said all the wrong things.)

His reply…

‘Make up your mind! What do you want? I’m trying to be this and i’m trying to be that and…’

AND THAT IS WHERE IT ALL GOES WRONG!

Y’see, you shouldn’t have to try and change who you are to meander around what you THINK a person would like, because if you don’t actually know that girl or guy personally, then assuming how they want you to BE may not be the best approach.

Get to know them properly, I mean, don’t be scared to get to know them properly. Go for it. And if they don’t want to get to know you, it’s their loss! You tried. And boy’s yes, you need to be forward, yet you need to be gentlemen.

Go for it! But don’t balls it up!!

Ten minutes later, I was laid ontop of my bed after work, in my black and white pinstriped work shirt, watching Steven Bartlett’s ‘New Year in Singapore’ Vlog, like I do every evening to unwind. I find it comforting and easy to watch. (I guess, it’s just the same as those of you who find yourself popping into Wunna land for a casual blog read.) I just find Bartlett exceedingly interesting. He’s really talented.

Anyway, I’d been waiting for his next Vlog for ages. I was on Snapchat faffing around with the filters. Then BOOM just like that, his new Vlog had been uploaded and I was so happy when it finally posted and even happier when he uttered this sentence on Snapchat…

‘Send me a snap of you watching my Vlog and i will reply… with a video.’ 

WHAT!!!!???!!! AMAZING! Sent a snap in a second. LOL. (I’m ridiculous, I know. But I can’t hep it. I’m a huge Bartlett Fan.)

Got my *Video Snap* from him straight away.

He was there in his hat. He thanked me, had Pablo the puppy on his knee, who was doing some cute ‘stretchy chin thing,‘ on a desk that was infront of them.

Then I heard, what I thought was music, but it was his computer? And with a glint in his eye and a dash of excitement he *popped up* with a fun…

‘My Coachella tickets are ready!!!’

And that was my Bartlett video snap!

I loved it. How fun! Good idea right! I’ll have to steal it!

I sent him a ‘thank you’ video snap back.

But it was ace because I loved  actually peeking into a tiny bit of his ‘real life’ world. It was also great because it sort of helped me understand how people may feel, when they actually get to peek into Wunna land.

Then just as I sat up and reached for my wine…my Whatsapp *notified’ my attention.

It was a message from ‘London Business Man…’ Uncanny timing, after the brief mention on yesterday’s blog. I like good timing…and good old male bravery.

All it read was,

‘So when are we catching up. xxx’ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Blog, Bartlett & The New Year

Image may contain: 1 person

So, we did it! We championed an entire 2016! Some of you have had a shit year! Some of you have had a great year! I guess it depends on how you look at things? But nonetheless, you survived it, lived it, loved and hopefully shimmied a bit closer to your ‘dreams come true.’

I’ve had a massive year of change. If i go back two years ago, 2014 was probably the worst year of my life that I had to prettily surf with a wink and a round of deep breaths. I couldn’t wait for it to be over, as if anything went wrong that year, it did. My work life, my love life, my home life…it all went to pot…and I could’ve taken that time and drowned myself in a rummy pity party (lol,) yet I didn’t, it made me strong, I laughed it off and I sort of ‘rose from the ashes’ as they say, ten times more dynamic.

Then in 2015, after being thrown into and spat out of an emotional rollercoaster, without my consent or being strapped in, I was determined to play it safe and live a more mundane ‘un..glittery’ existence, that wasn’t me. I dated a normal boring boy, with no goals, ambition, no adventure, or life experience. I looked after him…and i got bored quickly. Yet it was great because at the same time as him draining the ‘ooh laa’ out of me, as his insecurity had sort of got in the way of me furthering myself with my career, it helped me quickly realise what i actually wanted, what my purpose was and that I was ready. So i changed my world around, got happy, got rid of boy and again became 10 times more mighty. bI was on the right path, as i had bored myself SO silly, that i yearned for excitement and to make my mark. (Work was always good.)

Everything changed in 2016 and fast, as i was no longer hanging about. I stayed loyal to my goals, what i wanted, who i wanted to be and became productive. Work changed Lifestyle changed. Guys changed. I stayed firmly single all year. Everything was new, fresh and exciting. I had shimmied up that ladder a little bit more and then in October, it all changed again, as i made a little decision to go to The Leeds Lifestyle Awards. From that point on weirdly, the Wunna magic was ignited…and opportunity just seemed to keep domino falling infront of me. Instead of shying away, I took the up….(I still kept making weird boy decisions through the year)…But i finally pulled myself together, turned the focus away from that and CONCENTRATED on what I wanted, needed and what would make me happy. (Work was always good.)

Fresh opportunities came a tapping…and the blog set fire and went WILD. It had been read all over the world on every continent anyway, yet it SHOT OUT OF GLITTER CANON AND IT GOT CRAZY.

Everything changed and I was going from place to place, doing life, blogging about it and turning the ‘Chrissie Wunna’ name, into a brand… by accident. (Even though I kinda knew what i was doing. 😉 ) Within weeks, I was being labelled the ‘Real Life, Carrie Bradshaw,’ an inspiration, a Cyberlebrity, I was getting invited to some of the top new openings, events and places..for the largest companies, brands, be they restaurants, clubs, fashion labels…everything and just because they wanted to appear on this page! I became Verified on Twitter and everyone seemed to be listening to what i was saying. Meetings sort of confetti showered upon me and big agents, infact all sorts came a tapping at my kitten door, in order to try and represent me. (I didn’t go with any of them, as I didn’t feel the ‘fit’ was right. The ‘fit’ matters. Who you work alongside or trust to give your ‘brand’ to, collaborate with, or build an empire with…matters. It’s like dating, you wouldn’t just settle because you have nothing going on, if you don’t have to.)

Important people were tuning into my blog, more and more followers were peeking into Wunna land and people who I’M personally inspired by started to follow me or take a moment of their time to actually click on Chrissiewunna.com and read a blog. (AS IF!) I mean, to ME that was simply such a personal pinnacle. It made my eyes smile, filled my soul with gratitude and made me feel of ‘worth.’

All of this was going on…as I was going to work every single day, doing my day job, being a single Mum, loving all of that and getting on with life, happily. I mean, I work alongside the best people. I also have such a supportive family, that in that area, i cannot at all go wrong.

Towards the end of the year things busied up…and as I was working through the day, being a Mum after work and then working through the evening at events, with the help of my Mum and the Baby Daddies…more stuff changed, I made more connections, people wanted to help me and I began (which is where I am now) stamping my mark down that little harder. I mean GOSH, the absolutely FABULOUS time that I had at Gino D’Acampo’s new restaurant in Leeds, that stepped up my game a little. (I go back in January after the first successful visit. 🙂 I can’t wait!) But yes, I was being asked to just show up at venues and simply BLOG from them. I KNOW!!! WITH BOOZE!!! It’s a crazy kind of wonderful that is so humbling that I almost have to pinch myself to believe it. I’ve shimmied at every Christmas celebrity event. I blogged my version of them all. MY birthday with Lisa Appleton ended up all over the national press (because of Lisa’s Bum Lol,) and I started to get *papped* at places and then I got nominated for the UK Blog Awards…and in a week, i’ll find out if i made the shortlist. (I even made the UK Blog Awards Trend!! AS IF!!)

During this whole entire time, my sanctuary and my grounding force was always my work colleagues, my children and my moments alone of reflection away from the madness. (Like I went back to the office today and ‘The Mighty’ said that my blog reads like i’m a frilly Bimbo type, who’s all ‘wishy washy cocktails,’ when really i’m quite sensible, ambitious and together. It was her last day today at work for a while, as she is off to birth a human. We’ll miss her.)

BUT also towards the end of the year I really got into watching these truly inspiring Vlogs by Steven Bartlett, who created the whole ‘Social Chain’ company. Every night I watched one, (and I still do) to learn, to calm my mind in the evenings as I laid in bed and to feel empowered before I went to sleep.

I actually found his Vlog accidentally via ‘Eton Mess’ who I had stopped talking to, not because of any problems, as we’re still friends, but just because that’s what ‘life’ wanted. Anyway, he’d posted one of Bartlett’s Vlogs on his Facebook Wall, about ‘Negative People,’ and after watching it, I then posted one of his other Vlogs on MY OWN Facebook wall.

From that point on like he was some Life Wizard, I was hooked, because i felt so inspired, I could relate to everything he was saying…PLUS, there was just something about him…there is…isn’t there…There’s just something about that guy…

When I appeared at Gino’s for lunch (best place ever) doing the Restuarant blog with ‘House of Solo’ I used my last 1 percent of battery life, watching a Bartlett Vlog at the Prosecco bar. YES, during my own actual appearance. Lol. The next day when i wrote my blog and posted it everywhere like I do and I tagged Steven Bartlett into my Twitter Post. I didn’t think he’d read it/skim it, or care to be honest. But i tagged him in it anyway…and he read it..He even Tweeted me back thanking me for the mention in the blog and then thanked me for watching and supporting HIS Vlogs. AS IF!!! It literally made me BEAM! I would never have thought that that would’ve happened, but it did and it made me happy because I had emailed Social Chain a week and a half before and I hadn’t recieved a response.

So, I guess i’m saying that this year has been AMAZING and i hope yours has too! If it hasn’t, look forward or create better times. For me, it’s been the year where in which I rebooted, refound my passion, became productive and did what I loved. It’s been the year where appropriate or magical changes have been made in order to place all the right elements in their correct places for the next step. I don’t know whether I’VE done that or ‘The Gods’ have thrown me a bone. Lol.

What I did want to say was THANK YOU, as even though this is the diary of MY life, if it wasn’t for YOU, tuning in… when you can.. or when you care and returning back to ‘Wunna Land’ afterward, it really wouldn’t be where it’s at today.

I mean GOD, when it first started a decade ago in Hollywood and only 8 people read it a month….I didn’t have internet access (and the blog was still on Myspace) so I had to walk to The Beverly Center, in West Hollywood every day and write my blog from one of the display demo desktops at the Apple Mac store. Lol. They didn’t even stop me. I must’ve looked like a weirdo. I even did it at the Apple Stores in New York and in every hotel that provided free internet services…all over America. Lol. (People didn’t want me to blog from their venue then. 🙂 Ten years on…they’re begging me too.)

I remember being excited because 74 people had read my blog in ONE DAY. 🙂 Now, like I always tell you, tens and TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YOU *click* into Wunna Land, all over the world…On every single continent….In over 200 different countries…..and its translated into 40 different languages a day. (Haha…You know the spiel.)

But thank YOU for reading and following my life. It’s just my version of it and I hope yours is going just as well or at least the way you wish it to!

Thank you to everyone who has been a real life part of this year. I always say that my blog is like a written word, reality show, where real people, *pop* out of nowhere and become part of it all, as their real life path crosses with mine. If it was a written word, reality show, then I will honestly tell you that I HAVE NEVER EVER HAD A BETTER CAST, THAN THE CAST OF THIS YEAR!! Lol. THANK YOU. You rocked! (Even the ones that put me through shit. Lol.)

I don’t know what my 2017 has in store…I’ve read loads of tweets by others who all have ‘so many great things happening in 2017.’ 

I honestly have no clue what’s a coming? I just know that whatever life throws at me…I’m ready for it and i’m armed with a *wink.*

Hopefully i’ll BOSS IT and not drink too much gin.

I’ll leave you with this… (This was the first Steven Bartlett Vlog that I found posted on someone else’s Facebook wall…)

Happy 2017. Sail Well!

SENDING YOU ALL MY LOVE.

FUCKING HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3rd Vlog Up & Snow Babies

ac6 - Copy

Work was great today because it was one of those days, where in which we could all sort of ‘chill,’ yet still be on ‘work mode’ as we wave the flag for friendship. There was a moment where ‘Imaginary Jenna’ was sat behind a milk fridge and I was sat with her, like we were little children, connected in some happy, dysfunctional, yet loving family…just chatting about life, with laughter honesty, after her night on the razzle and my evening recovering from ‘hate mail.’

It’s the moments like that, that matter and always the moments that I remember.

Easy peasy day. Really great time! I’m lucky! And again it feels great to be able to saunter into a work place and LOVE it…regardless. (Not many people have that. I’m lucky that I do!)

Other than that, it SNOWED last night and it was the first time that Junior had EVER SEEN THE SNOW FALL, so his sheer excitement was enough to make my heart and your heart MELT! he span around in it, like nothing else mattered to him, in the entire WORLD!

Both of the babies, rushed to wrap up warm and play in it for a little while, before I jollied off to work, this morning. I mean,  It’s just amazing to stand back and watch them be my babies…As any Mum knows, watching them grow is both really hard and really exciting all at the same time. You always wish for them to stay little…yet their growing process is literally unbelievable. Ruby took control of the snow, went sledging with Pete and demanded that everyone call her doll ‘Chinese and chubby.’ (Lord knows??) She is every inch a Wunna. Poor thing! Lol

 

After work, I went to pick Ben up from The Carleton. We both venture there quite a lot, so it was kinda great to have an after work wine. Katty & Rich had been keeping the company. (Apparently Dodge had just left, so I had missed him by an inch.) We caught up, chattered about dickheads, who send me shitty mail, laughed about it and decided that Ben was moderately pervy, Katty takes ages to get ready and throws strops about it and Rich should start a ‘how to paint a wall’ Vlog.

Just a quick catch up really, before we all ventured home in the cold and since then it’s been an evening of wine, watching Ben laugh at his own filmed videos. (He has a good one coming up, which documents his ‘cheat day.’ Honestly, if you could’ve been a fly on my living room wall, watching him giggle at himself, you would’ve found him adorable.) I’m definitely going to Vlog bomb him and camera hog his ‘moment’ every time he tries to film from now on. I’m on a ‘day off’ tomorrow, so if he films, he has no chance of surviving it, without a Wunna appearance,

I’ve watched Celebrity Big Brother and I’ve definitely decided to be on Team Gemma Collins, on the ‘Stephanie shouldn’t snog Jeremy, if she has a boyfriend on the outside’ debate. I’m not sure what she’s thinking, but her poor boyfriend must feel really shite, right now. I’m not really one to judge, yet there are better ways she could’ve not loved him and snogging someone else on NATIONAL TELLY, probably wasn’t the best way to show him. Lol.

(Ben doesn’t want me to ever go on Big Brother.)

I’m just chilling tonight as I have a day of filming Vlogs tomorrow. Now, if you didn’t know, i’m trying to eat in a more healthy fashion. One to support ‘the hubs’ and secondly because it’s just better in the long run. But I love, love, LOVE all things spicy, so I couldn’t help but  scoff down these homemade chilli sauces…

..that were gifted to us, at Christmas, by ‘Sarah & Murga.’ (Soooooooooooooo GODLY good! So goood! Anything that makes my nose sweat, makes my loins ache with goodness! I’ve dipped bread sticks in them, like my life depended on it, then finished off the moment with BAILEY’S flavoured FUDGE blocks! TO DIE FOR! (I’ll start my diet tomorrow.)

GIVE ME WINE.

I’m sat on my living room floor blogging. Ben’s laid on the sofa, looking tired and his nose.

I have a brand new Vlog up (which has already received ‘hate mail’ from the same loser who sent me the previous ‘essay’ of love. Woohoo! But i’m finding it funny now, as no matter what they say, my video views are doing really well. Lol. (Infact, i’m glad they’re watching them so intently…as every time they do, money is being made.) I’ve had over 10,000 views in total on my little 2 Vlogs….which not only means a lot, as i’m in shock, but pretty much keeps me going! *Kiss it.*)

If you haven’t see my 3rd Vlog…you should.

So click below and ENJOY!

Thank you so much for all the love! I’m glad you’veall loved my ‘comeback’ blog! *Weeing myself.*

Here’s the Vlog…
