Life: London Party Circuit - 1-3 Feb 2012

Last week the wonderful world of PR took me to not one, not two, but three rather fabulous parties in London. First up was a friend's event at The Hoxton Pony which was a Macmillan Fundraising event held by T4s Georgie Okell. Amongst the attendees were Prof Green, Jameela Jamil, Nyx Deyn and Made in Chelsea's Ollie Locke. Yasmin performed and Rizzle Kicks played an awesome DJ set, spinning everything from Azealia Banks to the Chemical Brothers.

The Hoxton Pony is well worth a try next time you find yourself in the East End. Described by Harper's Bazaar as 'A Modernist Alice in Wonderland-esque watering hole' the bar/club brings cocktails in tea-cups alongside highly palatable DJ sets.

The next night I was at Pertwee Anderson & Gold gallery's latest private view for the artist Annie Morris. Morris' new works explored the tragedy of still-birth and yet I many of them enigmatically fragile and beautiful. In the past Annie has collaborated with Burberry's designer Christopher Bailey to create the famous 'peg dress'. It was no surprise then to see the likes of Sophie Dahl and Rosamund Pike at the Soho gallery, alongside a man in a huge top hat and a ferret collar.


Once we'd satisfied our art lust we jumped in a cab down to Sloane square to attend the Sunday Times Magazines 50th Anniversary bash at the stunning Saatchi gallery. The magazine - which was the first Sunday newspaper magazine supplement - is showcasing some of its most memorable covers since its inception in 1962. Attendees included Jeremy Clarkson, Paxo, Carol Vorderman, Gary Lineker and Sir Phillip Green amongst many others. I shared a story about an exes pubic hair with Sky's Adam Boulton, his wife Anji Hunter and Times editor Eleanor Mills - it went down a storm, unlike the original event - and I also got some juicy radio 4 gossip from a rather merry John Humphrys, which I promised not to divulge...

The biggest fashion faux-pas of the evening was easily when Philip Treacy had to introduce himself to us - we'll blame the copious amounts of wine. I opted for a LBD from FCUKs amazing sale teemed with  bright blue Kurt Geiger Bianca courts - another sale steal which had originally been going for £220.  They went down a storm, winning 'best shoes of the evening' from more than a couple of admirers, which just about justified having to teeter up and down 5 flights of stairs every time I needed to visit the little girls room.
