I’m literally just back from Kuala Lumpur, I ran a workshop and gave a keynote speech at the World of Executive PA 2013 Conference – how cool is that?? Yes it’s a long way to go but I love to seize any opportunity to meet other PA’s and share our experiences.
Ida Ruby is a lovely brand that pays homage to pin-up girls, vintage glamour and the belief that all the clothes we wear should be an extension of ourselves. They recently launched their Spring/Summer collection for 2013 which features a range of beautiful corsets, basques and bustiers in a variety of shapes and colours.
The online store launched in March 2013 and sells vintage-inspired corsets for women of all shapes and sizes. Ida Ruby is also working in partnership with the Eve Appeal – a charity funding research into gynaecological cancer in women. For every sale, Ida Ruby donates 50p to the charity.

Anyone who knows me know that I’m a huge Idina Menzel fan: I saw her in Rent, Wicked and when she toured with Marvin Hamlisch and played the Royal Albert Hall and then I was SO lucky (thanks so my great friend Barry Burnett) to get tickets to see her at The Hackney Empire last week when she was recording Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night is Music Night’ – and what a great show. I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed by life of late – why is it that everything comes at you at the same time?
Who are we getting to know better this week? Why the one and only Victoria Louise Rabin!
