We spoke to the lovely Lauren Bowmer who was the lucky winner of the recent ‘Win a day in the life of a Kardashian’ of how her and best friend Lucia enjoyed their trip.
Here’s what Lauren had to say…
“We were up bright and early on the Saturday morning to head to London and check into our gorgeous hotel. The first stop was Dorothy Perkins on Oxford Street where I treated myself to most of the Kardashian Kollection including the leather look leggings which are my absolute favourites!
After watching Wicked at the Victoria Apollo (which was amazing) we headed back to the hotel for some ultimate relaxation at the spa where I had a facial and a gorgeous manicure.
The night was spent drinking delicious cocktails and eating some amazing Oriental food, after which we partied the night away! We headed home the next day after seeing all the sights of London. What an amazing weekend!”
We’re so glad you had such a fabulous time living the life of a Kardashian, girls!

We spoke to one of our
lovely DP girls Hayley Sanwell, who works as an Assistant Buyer, as in a few
weeks she will be taking part in the London Marathon and raising money for
Breast Cancer Care.
Here Hayley talks about
why she’s taking part, how her training is going and how she’s been raising
money for Breast Cancer Care.
“It began back at the beginning of this year when I received an email at work stating there was one London marathon place available. Through working at Dorothy Perkins I’ve gained a real insight into the amazing work that Breast Cancer Care do, so combined with a personal ambition I jumped at the chance.
The Marathon takes place on 21st April, so to begin training in mid January I was already behind most runners. Knowing it’s for such a great cause has really spurred me on and I am pleased to say I’ve now reached the 20 mile training mark! Some blue sky, a burst of sunshine and a pretty view of London really helps me when I get to the midway point.
I’ve received great support from family and friends as well as my DP colleagues, my team made some delicious goodies for a bake sale and we raised a whopping £180! I’ve only got two weeks to go which is a little daunting but the cause is keeping me going!
If you’re in London on the big day then make sure you show your support to the runners and keep an eye out for me!
