The Martha Stewart Show - Live from New York!

So on our first morning in New York mum and I made the short 15 min walk from our hotel to the Martha Stewart studios

It was so surreal to be in the studios of a programme I've only ever watched online

 Wouldn't you like to have this craft room as your disposal?

The shows theme was Earth Day which was really interesting and we walked home with so many freebies; a cd rom of every issue of National Geographic since 1888, Martha Stewart Hand Soap as well as various DVDs and books

Seeing Martha "in the flesh" was fantastic and everything I hoped it would be. I was really concerned having read a few blog posts about her negative attitude and indifference to the studio audience but my experience was nothing but good. Our show was going out live so naturally she was focused and hardly likely to turn to the audience and have a chat!

I also noticed as we were leaving the studios that Martha had moved in to the on set kitchen to see a member of staff who had obviously brought her new baby into work. Martha was holding the baby and having photos taken with them, laughing and joking all very normal behaviour!

At the end of show Martha came forward to the audience and asked if anyone had any questions for her whilst she was waiting for them to set up cameras for her promotion reels to be filmed

 One women had a question about cleaning leather gloves and Martha recommended a professional service at a store in Manhattan which she couldn't remember the location of, in a matter of seconds an intern whizzed over to the lady in question with a print out of the store Martha was talking of

It was a fantastic experience one I'd certainly recommend and watching Martha in action live I have a lot of respect for her. Just watching what goes into one of these shows I can only imagine what it must be like when they have cooking segments!

I'll leave you with a photo of the Empire State Building lit green to celebrate Earth Day

I'm on a roll with the charity shops at the moment and came home at the weekend with this new dinner set

6 plates in each of the 3 sizes and 2 large bowls all for the bargain price of £10

Isn't it great? I can't wait to serve my first meal on it

Birthday Fun

Thank you so much to all of you that sent me birthday greetings I had a lovely day - if not to plan!

After an hour stuck in traffic on the dreaded M25 on route to Winchester my parents & I turned around and headed back home!

With my free time I was popped to my favourite charity shop where I picked up this cupboard to help hide those pesky wires that have been bothering me

Later that evening I had a houseful of friends and we had a wonderful time together and a delicious takeaway

I received some wonderful presents and cards which I'll show you properly in another post

One of my gifts was my trip to NY in a couple of weeks so its time for me to start making my plans

Barbie Girls!

Sadly I don't have anything exciting to report on from my Easter weekend due to spending most of it in bed unwell, thankfully I'm starting to feel better and almost ready to tuck into the mini eggs that have piled up at home!

As I'm lacking in Easter goodness to show you, instead here are some pictures from from the Barbie themed Wonder Room at Selfridges

Don’t the larger dolls look great?
