Remember to watch in HD!

At the end of July, I had one of the best experiences. Activia got in touch and asked if I wanted to help them with their 'Feel Good From Within' campaign at Westfield Stratford, and then spend most of the afternoon chilling with Gok Wan. Activia had been asking Facebook followers to submit photos that make them feel good from within on their feed, and some people had their photo selected and it was framed and hung on a board in Westfield, along with one of mine that they wanted me to submit (me eating a 90cal smoothie lolly) - it was a totally surreal experience and I will never forget people walking past and just seeing my face in a frame in a public shopping mall.

I asked if Lauren could come along for the day too, and we had such a laugh together. TGI's to Lauren's first time trying bubble tea - it's all there in the vlog! After a brilliant meet and greet Gok did with fans, we went to a conference room to eat Pinkberry and drink Iced Tea, and had the opportunity to ask Gok tons of questions. He's even better in person - one of the most honest and down to earth people I have ever met, and was genuinely such a laugh..the sort of person I felt like I'd known for years and could really have a bit of banter with, which is probably why he is so successful - people can relate to him, and he relates back, but its done with a good heart and understanding. The questions we asked went on for over an hour, so I've broken down a few of the good bits in the vlog, but if you'd like to see the whole interview, let me know and I can put one together.

On the day, I also got to meet three other lovely bloggers - Dannii, Laura and Catherine who were just wonderful and it was so nice to experience the day together. I hope you enjoy the vlog and thank you to Gok and Activia for a wonderful day :)

  4. Tamsin I love the video!!!!!!!! You've done so well to put a really varied piece together... love the bit where we're all trotting along trying to keep up with him (you'd have thought he'd know that we're girls and wear heels. Tut, tut, Auntie Gok ;) Plus that first picture of the two of you is too cute! Told you you had a perfect profile - thought any more about posting on my The Accentuate the Positive Project wall...? (I did tell you about it, didn't I??)

    Stay well my lovely <3
