I have spent the day it seems squashed between two wonderful stylists.  This morning George Blodwell took me to the gift suites at the L'hermitage and The London Hotel. The 'Gift Suites ' are still a highly prized invitation, despite not being so popular with Hollywood stars, because they felt that they were being used. I of course  had never been before.  George is always full of enthusiasm, last night he arrived at the Beverly Hills Hotel with two pairs of sunglasses with pearls and furry muffs on one and blue lace on the other.  He handed them to me and said "You are the only person in the world that can wear them" I put the glasses on immediately and loved them.  The gift suites are set in about four rooms at L'hermitage  and contain anything from special teas to unusual pieces of leather wear, to corsets and jewels.  We were taken carefully around the rooms, and shown everything. People from all over the world were busy advertising their ideas.  It was a fun way to get to know different worlds all crammed together from Colmans Mustard, PG Tips who are eco friendly to Californian Champagne in gold and silver bottles. The London Hotel was much the same it had underwear by TC Fine Intimates to wear under your Globe dress, shoes by Ron White that are comfortable to wear all day, and you feel as if you walk on air, Revita lash to make your lashes grow fast, an incredible camera that can make films in seconds and it stays in your hair by LOOXCIE and a new Nescafe Dolce Gusto which makes frothy cappucinos, macchiatos,mochas etc. I was by now exhausted and dying to get home.  With twenty bags we stumbled into my bat mobile. I then had a quick change and met Rushka Bergman, Fashion Editor for L'Uomo Vogue and my great friend,  for  a quick dinner before one of the many Globe parties. She was being fabulous as usual. 'Darlink, what are you doing on your fashion page at Genlux, if you don't wear white then don't show white"
