Today is the start of a new regular feature on the Storksak blog – in ‘Tales from the Studio’ we will share our thoughts and what we’re up to here at Storksak HQ.
The usual mix of unusual “celebrities” have just gone into the ‘I’m a Celebrity” jungle, prompting us to ask around the studio, would you go into the jungle?
The consensus at Storksak HQ was that most of us would politely decline the producers’ very kind offer, but we would be prepared to think about the luxury items we could take in with us!
We thought about the useful and beautiful things that we all want and need in our lives. The suggestions ranged from the predictable – lip salve, eye creams, chocolate and eyeliner (“well, we would be live on TV” mused Wendy), to the practical – matches, toothpaste, earplugs, eye mask and pillows.
A few of us wanted a Kindle but as we wouldn’t be able to charge them, a good old- fashioned book would have to do. Lucinda, our lovely Customer Services Manager, asked for a cashmere scarf, but as she wanted it wrapped around Benedict Cumberbatch, we demurred…
Thank goodness then for our creative guru Melanie, who ramped the luxe level up to 11 with her suggestion of Fortnum and Mason’s hampers. Yes, that would be three, large hampers. Kudos, Melanie, we like your style! (And congratulations in advance to whoever Melanie has picked for Secret Santa this year.)
The most interesting suggestion came from our designer Lior, who asked for a simple ball of string. Knowing what these creative types are like we can only imagine that he was planning to weave himself an i-pad and fashion a charger out of whittled sticks…
Taking all the suggestions into account we came up with our top 3. Can we have a drum roll please! The votes have been counted and the 3 most popular items we would take into the jungle are: a case of Champagne, Eve Lom Rescue Mask and a wind up radio. But what would your top three be?
