A Monster of a Weekend

The girls in the office were exceptionally excited about the possibility of spending the weekend with heartthrob and model Tyson Beckford. No, not just a one night stand, but as part of our event with John Lewis and Monster on Saturday.

And who got the date? Our very own Claire Ashman who was in her element after being granted ‘no limits’ access to the fashion department. It was all we could do to stop her shopping for herself. Many an “Oooh this is nice” was countered with “Claire, you’re meant to be styling our models” and “No, you can’t have those shoes”.

Screaming girls lined up to meet Tyson and we definitely spotted a few PrettyGreeners in the queue for a photo.

What was it all for?

We were helping launch Monster Inspiration headphones – the latest line which allows you to change headbands to match your style.

John Lewis also challenged leading fashion bloggers to create looks based on the Inspiration range, adding headphones as the ultimate accessory. With Tyson judging their efforts, competition was fiercer than Tyra Banks fighting an angry cat.

We loved meeting Tyson, and some of the girls may even have snuck off with a poster or two for the bedroom wall – signed of course for their ‘friend’.
