Back in January I launched a competition to ‘Win a Date’ with Danny Wisker a UK model. The prize also included a makeover with Scarlett & Stone, The Beauty Experts of Great Dunmow and hair transformation with Smith & Co Hairdressers, Great Dunmow before being chauffeur driven by McKenzie Arnold Executive Transport to The Rare Cow Restaurant in Billericay where the winner would meet her date and enjoy an evening of fine dining!
Within a day of the competition the entries came rolling in and to enter was easy, just tell me in no more than 30 words why you deserved the date. Choosing however, was not simple! Every other day I received stories which would make Bridget Jones sob, poems so creative (and kinky) they should be on the top shelf and pleas of ‘pick me’ so desperate I wanted to shake the girls and tell them to ‘get a grip’.
In the end it was this simple email from Beckey Arnold which stood out for well its simplicity. ‘Danny looks very handsome and a real gentleman. I am a 28 professional girl who would love to be wine and dined and dance the night away with him.’
Now I’d like to say that in features everything goes more or less to plan – it doesn’t and unfortunately on this occasion there was a real clanger. On the morning of the competition Danny text to say due to unforeseen circumstances he had to cancel. We agreed to postpone but despite several attempts to contact him I’ve not heard back!
Well come rain or high horses I was going to make sure Beckey had the time of her life and so she invited along her sister Holly instead.
On the day the girls met at my house where they were both treated to a glamorous hair makeover from Maria and a stunning make-up application from Holly. Looking every inch the stars they were whisked away like Hollywood royalty in a top of the range Porsche (via Brentwood High Street – have to milk this girls), to the much talked about The Rare Cow in Billericay. Whilst I retreated to my local drinking vodka, lime and soda, the girls were posting pictures of them quaffing champagne and having a feast! As the evening drew to a close it was evident from all the fun tweets that ‘sisters are really doing it for themselves’!
I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved and for the kind generosity given in making this competition happen.
