From an X Factor winner, to a Welsh Warbler, to a designer trunk show and a jumbo sausage… just an average week in PR for us!

We welcomed the new Mrs Mountstevens back from her honeymoon this week, although she did turn up a day earlier than we expected – no reflection on her holiday, just a miscalculation on the dates! As well as gorgeous wedding pictures and a sparkly ring she also brought us back her amazing wedding cupcakes yum yum!!

We officially started working for Woolworths last week and threw ourselves into it ZPR-style contacting all of our journalist contacts to let them know about the up and coming press show, placing product and we worked our way through three huge bags of pick n mix!

We announced the next phase of Superdrug’s summer Shun Burn campaign; a charity headscarf designed by Leona Lewis which will be available to buy online soon with all money going to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Also if you’re passing a Superdrug this weekend, you should check out their summer beach parties when staff will be donning their bikinis or trunks in store to boost the fundraising total.

Our Cardiff Peacocks store had a special visit on Friday from The Charlotte Church Show. Helen went over to make sure everything ran smoothly as five girls picked themselves clothes for a night out. The final outfits, all under £30, looked great and you’ll be able to see their shopping spree on air when the series returns to our screens this summer.

Top style editors, fashion royalty and socialites viewed next season’s designer must-haves at an exclusive Halston trunk show held at Selfridges. The event, hosted by Tamara Mellon and Ann Pitcher, allowed the crème of London’s fashion circuit to stay one step ahead and pre-order their favourite pieces before they hit the shop floor with our Kate was on hand to guide them to the ‘It’ bags of the future.

Finally, with Father’s Day this weekend, specialist sausage eatery ‘Banger Brothers’ have gone the extra mile to launch their new store in Selfridges. The ‘Big Daddy’; a special 15 inch sausage, is available until 15th June so get there quick to pick up the limited edition must-have for food loving Dads.
