Pillows, Popstars and Peppermints

Posted By


Sitting at my desk it’s hard to believe fellow Peppermint Alice and I were rubbing shoulders with the nation’s favourite popstars this weekend. I still feel like I’m in a fluffy-celeb-filled cloud!

Our lovely client, Sound Asleep pillows took to the gifting lounge at T4 Stars of 2010 at Earls Court to kit-out the popstars with the latest must-have item – speaker pillows. And of course, being the generous person that I am, I offered to go along to represent the brand. Oh, it’s a tough job…

Straining desperately not to look star-struck, we greeted some of the hottest celebs of the year and treated them to a pillow. And boy did they go crazy for them. Giddy T4 presenter Jameela actually squealed with excitement at the thought of using hers.

First up was cute boy band The Wanted, who took the opportunity to have a little rest on the on-set bed. We could hardly believe our eyes as JLS and Olly Murs wandered over and greeted us with a kiss on the cheek. Swoon!

Then came the oh-so glamorous, teeny-tiny girl group The Saturdays, Pixie Lott, Ellie Goulding and ‘new kids on the block’ Lola, who were all lovely – and desperate to get their hands on a Sound Asleep pillow. So much so, that we’re still getting through a back-log of requests.

As we headed back to Manchester, vowing never to wash our cheeks again, the crammed Virgin Pendolino sent the message, loud and clear, that our foray into ‘celebville’ was well and truly over. Until next year anyway…
