Oh FCUK!!!.... and Fantastical Pirates

Hello All!!!

I am Soooooo Sorry about the quiet nature of my blog recently.... But I have some news... Some of you who follow me on Twitter may already know but I have got an unpaid internship with French Connection Womenswear design!!!!

It was very unexpected and spur of the moment! I heard about the opportunity from a lovely girl on twitter Rachel Menashy. I applied for the job on Thursday 21/10/10 and heard back on the Monday (25/10/10) that if I was interested they would like me to start the DAY AFTER at 9:30!! Obviously I was panicked - but headed off to London and stayed in a hotel for the evening.

I then stayed in my sisters friends parents flat.

But the flat is based near Harrods!! And I have to say I really love their pirate and peter pan themed windows, which I get to walk past every day on the way to and from the tube, including a chocolate pirate ship - yummy!
The pirate ship is - Captain Hook's Chocolate Ship and you can see it in the window of Harrods on Hans Crescent. It is hand made with rich Belgian Chocolate by Harrods expert pastry chef. It measures 90x95cms!!!!

Customers can place their bid on the ship either in the food hall at the food orders desk and at Christmas World!! All proceeds of the sale will go to Great Ormond Street Children's Charity - So get bidding on this amazing Christmas gift!

If you want to find out more about Harrods or do some shopping head to their website. They are also on a range of social networks - Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare.

Apologies again for the lack of posting!!!!!!!!

  1. oh, how cool! sounds very exciting...hope you are having a great time and fun! xoxo

  2. Oooh we love a good window display and this one's a corker. We can't wait to go out and spot all the xmas one x

  3. How wonderful ... Harrod's!!!! I once spent 8 hours in the store and thought it was 20 minutes. That food court is so amazing. Nothing like it in America. Spagetti Bolognese ice cream? Piles of jelly beans? heaven.

  4. Will you do a post about your experience as an intern? Would love to read... (did you venture into the Harrods food hall? Marvellous!)

  5. Yes the window it lovely - they play clips from the play over the speakers as well so you feel like peter pan is really fighting the pirates!

    Harrods is amazing but quite hard to get past the tourists! But food hall is amazing!!

    Ofcourse at some point I will post about my experience - it is really interesting and they are lovely people! :)

    A new post is on its way! xxx
