Happy Teacher’s Day from the world’s happiest teacher (who enjoys drinking fresh gin and tonics, with family and friends, beside infinity pools, on sunny rooftop decks, overlooking the beauty of Ho Chi Minh city). 🤙😜🌸🍸
Christmas Season is just around the corner. ✨❄️🎄♥️ Der erste Schnee, der Weihnachtsmarkt ist aufgebaut und es ist arschkalt. 🥶 Ich freue mich schon auf den ersten Weihnachtsmarkt-Glühwein und endlich wieder Baumstriezel (kennt ihr das? Wenn nicht, dann probieren!!) 🤤
Wish I was here with someone to hold tight🙆

It's the 1st day of @justacard week and its YOU so here are 10 facts about Me:
1.) I was a geek 🤓 at school but quit college to go to art school @portsmouthuni and built a portfolio that enabled me to get onto the only Contour Fashion course at the time @dmuleicester.
2.) I studied lingerie design&did my disertation on fashion and eroticism. Which was eye opening 😲😲 3.) At the age of 21 I moved to Hong Kong to work and I designed the playful&plus size ranges for Victoria's Secrets👙
4.) In HK I had a swimming pool at my apartment, partied like a rock star, had weekly massages, took taxis everywhere, lived for @ysl handbags and @miumiu shoes and was a member of a yoga gym even though I have panic attacks doing yoga.. 😂💃
5.) ..mainly because I was called 'fat' as I walked into clothes shops, humiliated by my boss often (who would take my dinner away from me infront of people as she made a joke in Mandarin), get told to 'dance' and 'smoke and be thin' by the working girls in Lan Kwai Fong bars, and even got diagnosed with a 'crooked face' by a Chinese Dr who also said I have a disc missing in my spine too (causing me to be imbalanced, fat, deaf and visually impaired.) The irony was I was at my thinnest as an adult and could fit into @agentprovocateur too 😂
6.) After 16 months I left HK and moved to London where I handled the playful M&S range before moving to be head designer at an indie lingerie brand in Mayfair 💃
7.) My male boss would not let me wear heels-safe to say Fashion is brutal!-as I was taller than him and I lost my job a bit later as the great recession of 2008 hit which broke my heart 💔
8.) I moved back to Portsmouth whereupon I got a normal job and met my husband in a bar (this is another story 😂) and we have three little boys under 7.👫👱👱👶
9.) I set up @missbespokepapercuts
on my 2nd maternity leave as I couldn't face going back to a non-creative job (or working for someone else) and have been going almost 5 years🎊
10.) I don't have many photos of myself as I have no idea what face to pull now I am over the age of 30 and spent most of my 20s pouting like a blow up sex doll 😂🤔
We have had a lovely weekend visiting family, stopping the night at grandad's with auntie and Uncle. It was lovely to see those special memories being made.Because you never forget the sleepovers at your grandparents. Colouring in, playing hide n seek and eating all the good food.
