Psynopsis Maybelline Christmas Cocktails Party London


'twas the week of the xmas party and my favourite affair was the Maybelline do (which I think officially was a cocktail thing, but to me everything counts as a Christmas party these days)… I dimly remember Jill and me stepping into the basement of Soho House, and there was Jen snogging George Lamb on the sofa (kiiiiidding!), while DJ Henry Holland was checking out Jazmine’s legs (he might have… she does have very nice legs) and the whole place was steaming with happy creatures.
When I finally got the chance to get close to gorgeous George all I managed to blurb was something like 'I’m sure it's better to be a media whore than work 9 to 5.' to which he heartily agreed (probably trying to avoid a Gordon Brown moment hissing 'Who put this idiot on my sofa?!'). Gee, he really IS cute.

Am I the only one who feels like she's married to Mr Hangover these days, crawling the last meters towards the end of the marathon that was 2010? Oh well, Cheers anyway!
All pictures taken at the Maybelline Christmas Cocktails Party, Soho House, London.

Sabine!!! I've got some great shots of you with George, he looks quite smitten ; )

I HATE that shot of me, can I pay you to take it down? Can we swap for some of you & George? I wasn't even drinking? That is the worst shot I've ever seen.

That said.. you got a lovely shot of Jazmine's first cosmopolitan, and it's a great post - it was actually a really fun party, altho I usually hate such crowded crowds. Meeting you finally was worth it! xx

Certainly, I've taken it off - although I do LOVE this picture of you. I think you look really cool. But I don't want anyone to be unhappy with their photos!

Maddy said...

What a fab affair! And I'm extremely jealous of all your holiday party, cocktails...whatever! The only party I had was a work cocktail hour, which I chose to skip since I'd rather poke my eyes out than hang out after hours with my coworkers :o/

Phew, Jill has just said she's okay with the picture because as bloggers 'we better get used to it'. Thanks, Jill! And as I said, I think it's a cool pic and your hair is SO shiny!

Ha, Sabine, I just happened to have this window open (from the first time - hours ago) - we were watching Intolerable Cruelty (if you haven't seen it yet - George Clooney and Catherine Zeta Jones - we've seen it before but we were laughing so much we couldn't BREATHE) - anyway he just looked up from his book and saw this post and said 'That's a great shot of you, Jill'. Totallly sarcastically.

Watch: no one will come to my blog anymore, now that they know how ugly I really am ; )

You are so thoughtful for taking it down so quickly. I really do think it's important to be able to act like idiots, laugh at ourselves, and be willing to look really bad. I mean, look at Charlize Theron in Monsters: didn't she get an Oscar for that role?

SabinePsynopsis said...

Nonono, I will not have this any longer, Jill. I'll take the picture down now, and let the world wonder what would/could be an unattractive picture of you. I'm really, really sorry for causing you mixed emotions about this damn pic.

Looks like an awesome time! Is that Maybelline as in the cosmetic company? If so, I used to work for them. And so fun Soho House. I've been to the NY one but have always wanted to go to the original!

Have an amazing weekend, honey! xoxo

Rosie Unknown said...

Colour me intensely jealous! I would love to be partying out 2010, but instead I'm stuck with evaluations from the beginning of this week through the end of January -.-

Make sure to party twice as hard for me!

Sniff said...

Reading your post brought something a friend posted on FB to mind. She wrote it in Norwegian, but I've tried to translate it into English as best as I could:

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to fall in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used and worn while you shout 'Ahoy what a ride!"

Party on, girl! Cheers! :)
