Recently I was invited to film with popular and UTTERLY HILARIOUS BBC presenter Mark Watson- but with a frustrating clash of dates, I just couldn’t make it to London for the shoot day- so did want any vlogger worth her salt would do, and vlogged a piece directly to Mark.

Yay for technology hey!

The filming was all part of MoneySupermarket’s new campaign #MSMHomeTruths with exploring the value of items that goes beyond monetary worth.

The outcome of the video where Mark tries to guess my personality made laugh out loud-you have to see it!

The background-

As someone who takes pride in her home, I was excited to share my possessions both here and more specifically in my wardrobe (hello shoes) whose real worth lies in the memories and significance of them to me. They’re irreplaceable really.

These pieces are an extension of myself, my family, the home and life we’ve built together-when I insure my home, I’m protecting my personality, my individuality, my character along with my past and present.

So here are the images Mark was sent before having to decide who I might well be! All very Through the Keyhole huh?!

My lounge-where the family gathers round the box (yay for Netflix) and to lay on the beloved chaise longue of ours.

The chaise longue was reupholstered as a gift from my Mum when we first moved here, after she bought the chair at an auction many moons ago.

The white rose emblems in the wood are a symbol of Yorkshire and it’s one of my most favourite heirlooms passed down from my folks.

When the kids return from school, the laptop goes away and we bake, cook and eat together. The bold yellow and red accents make me smile, and it’s a real sun trap of a room with a holiday vibe.

My family are originally from Cyprus and the kitchen when bathed in sunlight, reminds me of the many holidays spent there as a child.

Particularly with the fresh herbs of basil, coriander and mint flourishing on the windowsill and giant olive trees by our front door.

When I was offered the chance to create a pair of heels with Upper Street, I couldn’t wait to put my mark on my very own pair. These beauties reflect my style, personality and slightly wild side too of course!

As a TV and film director, blogger and vlogger, where would I be without my camera hey?! This had to go in! And ‘Action’!


…I had such a laugh filming my piece for Mark. After seeing my images above (without any explanation), he was asked to create a picture of who I was based on them!

A meringue eating, vintage loving filmmaker in heels is what I’m hoping for!

Go see if he got it right?!

    Ha, ha this cracked me up! Love the stuff he came up with especially about poor you having only one shoes! Hilarious. Some of his guesses were good though and others way off but so funny to watch x

    Haha this made me laugh out loud Vicki, what a fun campaign! I love his sadness for you with only one shoe, and also describing you as someone who owns ‘2 strawberries’. Classic. You own a lot more food than that, lady, wait till he reads this post and sees that you work right next to the fridge hehe. Mama after my own heart!

    I think his guesses were only vaguely linked to you (likes art, looks good) but perhaps the immaculate vision of your home in the pictures doesn’t fully capture the boisterous, slightly bonkers mama I’ve come to know 😉 I dread to imagine what conclusions he’d draw about us from a sniff around chez Babes! x

      Haha thanks Uju, you are so right, and sadly the house doesn’t always look immaculate. Can you imagine if he saw how much food is packed in my fridge-doesn’t everyone work next to the fridge too, girl? The only way here x
