It’s Friday!! 🎉🎉 The weekend is nigh! 🙌🏻 And just so you all know, Neve’s been working really hard all week in VL 🌸 HQ. So hard she’s already thinking about that two for one offer at All Bar One with her tinder date instead of paying attention to her probation period review ran by Alexandra. A probation period that is more than likely to be extended... #payattentionneve#please
That heartbreaking moment when you’re on the way to work and you realise you left the straighteners on... the straighteners that aren’t actually yours and that you borrowed/stole from your sister’s room #shit#doubleshit#happyhumpday 💅🏻
When the week is dragging, it’s only Tuesday, you don’t know what’s going on in the meeting, you keep thinking of the 3 meetings after this you haven’t prepared for, you haven’t had time to answer any emails because you’ve binged on Netflix, you’re trying to hide the massive coffee stain on your pants and 3 people haven’t text you back. Oh and your ASOS order got delivered to the wrong address 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️#midweekvibes
Clearly Neve got paid from Vibrantly Lieu 🌸 this month and we think she got a bit excited !!! 👠👜🧣 However some of us at HQ have a sneaky suspicion that Neve will probably be living on ramen for the rest of the month...
Award winning Emily Lively not only brightens up our screens on the PVC Shopping Channel 📺, making middle aged women fall in love with organic shea butter but she’s the woman on everyone’s advertising lips when it comes celebrity brand endorsement! ✨✨✨ Lively, however, has mentioned many times she will only choose a brand she feels a “personal affinity” to. So she’s opted for everyone’s favourite coffee brand; The Auckland Coffee Company Co. ☕️ Lively, herself, is a Proud Kiwi 🥝 and the coffee chain has great ethical principles; it pays its taxes as a corporation (which can’t be said for all the others) and you don’t even have to recycle the cups after you’ve drank them, they literally set themselves on fire at the end of your last sip into ashes and blow away in the wind! Lively loves this because she’s always too busy smiling in the bathroom mirror to actually walk to the recycling bin...And FYI - she doesn’t take sugar with her coffee because guess what?! She’s already sweet enough...💯💯💯
Happy Easter 🐣 to all our lovely followers 💛 Indulge yourself this bank holiday weekend!! 🍫🍪🍩 However all that being said, MD of VL 🌸, Alexandra Gold is a strong believer of beauty starting from the inside, as well as out. To set the example to her team, she only drinks green tea 🍵 sourced in the picturesque Japanese Rivera, Shizuoka 🇯🇵 (None of that “Twinings shit” that you people drink) and takes 15 different obscure nutritional supplements a day. This weekend, Alexandra’s main focus has been keeping an eye on chocoholic, Neve, making sure she doesn’t overeat on confectionery as she can’t afford to have Neve with any sugar spots on the PVC Shopping Channel 📺 So far, so good...Here they are enjoying a lovely, healthy, vegetarian brunch on Good Friday. Neve can now tell her friends that “brunch” actually means breakfast and lunch combined 🥑 and not the name of Kellogg’s new crunchy cereal...
Ever remember your first trip to London??? 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧Since Neve became Account Manager for Vibrantly Lieu 🌸 she has had to make many business trips to London in order to have meetings with important buyers and retailers. It certainly makes a change from her old job in the perfume section in Debenhams up North, spraying perfume around the counter to mask the smell of customers BO 🤦🏻♀️ One retailer she keeps having to meet up with in Central London is the very well known PVC Shopping Channel 📺📺📺, in preparation for Vibrantly Lieu’s 🌸 debut on the channel as part of Emily Lively’s renowned “Beauty Week” special 🌟🌟🌟However regardless of how busy she is, Neve still mananges to find some tourist downtime in between appointments to rub in her friends nose on Instagram that’s she’s #lovinglondonlife#2018 and they’re still working in Superdrug on the late shift 💋💋💋
Congratulations to Alexandra Gold who has recently just been added to this year’s 40 Business Women Under 40 List 🎉🎉🎉The 40 Business Women Under 40 List celebrates women in business for their tenacity, determination and expensive taste in Louboutin footwear. Footwear they sometimes use to walk all over their employees 👠 Gold became an early entrepreneur, aged 15, successfully selling almond flavoured lip balms on Ebay and in Portobello Market, Notting Hill. She even once served Hugh Grant 🌟 to which she commented - “He even asked me on a date after I closed the sale, but I told him I don’t mix business with pleasure” 🚫 Very quickly, Gold became a figurehead in the cosmetics industry going from a mere shop girl to Managing Director within a record breaking 10 months, even firing her own sister in the process. Gold argues: “If silly Anna hadn’t forgotten to put the lids on the ballpoint pens at 9.00am instead of 9.03am then she wouldn’t be in this mess, would she?” 🖊 Gold has previously been MD for Kimmel London, Estee Laundry, Chalmers Coco Butter, Nailed It! 💅🏻 and has recently moved to natural skincare brand Vibrantly Lieu 🌸. With such an impressive CV, why did she decide to go for new brand VL 🌸🤷🏻♀️ ?? Gold shares her insights: “Well everyone’s buying natural now because we live in a world full of vegan tree-hugging hippies. They somehow have more money than normal people. They’re also really unaware of how pretentious they are which means they will always pay more for things. It’s a smart business move”.
There are only a few cult legendary figures in the beauty world... and Emily Lively is one of them 🙌🏻 Emily Lively got her big break on the PVC Shopping Channel after being spotted guest modelling Wonderbras, when the channel started out 14 years ago. Not only did her beauty get her noticed by producers, but they admired her organised demeanour, endearing kiwi accent and array of coloured blazers on every show. Thus a household name was born 📺 Year by year, she has built her career selling everything from jewellery, to gym equipment, to Nokia 3310 phones and even to the highly coveted PVC lawn mowers!! 🌱🌱🌱For the last 8 years she’s won award after award for her services to the PVC Shopping Channel. These awards include “Best Smile”, “Best French Manicure” and “Most-Easy-To-Understand-When-Talking TV Presenter” 🌟🌟🌟 Lively now, mostly concentrates on beauty presenting and showcases every month “A Beauty Week” special introducing the latest and the most exciting brands in the industry... Vibrantly Lieu 🌸 skincare will be up next ✅
Brighton Fringe is just over two months away and we are mega mega mega excited!! 🤩🤩🤩🤩 But how well do you know team VL 🌸 ?! Thankfully before you watch them in full shopping channel flow on 25, 26 and 27 May at the #brightonfringe ⭐️ , they said they were more than happy to share some words of wisdom with you all...

3 industry women, 3 very different, distinct personalities... 💁🏻♀️💁🏼♀️💁🏻♀️Neve, Emily and Alexandra reminding you ALL, female or male, to celebrate your uniqueness, nerve, charisma, talent and vulnerability - today and everyday.

It’s Monday!! And let’s face it... we all secretly love a cheesy #MotivationalMonday 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻quote to make us not want to kill ourselves with our ballpoint pens. And also to stop us from eating an entire packet of Jaffa Cakes out of sheer anxiety and boredom.
So to keep the momentum going here’s one from us at Vibrantly Lieu HQ, 🌸: “Think pink in a sea of black and grey”*💓💓💓 *Note- sent in by our very own new starter, Neve Turner. She said it took her 2 nights to conjure up something meaningful. Well Done Neve. Now go to Starbucks and get Alexandra her soy latte, you were meant to get it 40 minutes ago ☕️☕️☕️
Regram - @brightonfringe - It’s here 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Have you got your copy of Brighton Fringe Brochure yet??? Get out and have a gander! Find us in the “theatre” section because Neve, Emily, Alexandra and Verity are let’s face it... ever so slightly dramatic 👑🙄 Available at Brighton train station, Doddle, Hove Library & The Old Market 🎭🦑🐙
All the excitement of the launch is too much to bear for Neve so she celebrated the way she knows best; by taking self indulgent selfies of herself in her new pink suit she bought in the Black Friday sale 🎀- remember you can follow us on Twitter: @vibrantlylieu and search for us on Facebook: @vibrantlylieuplay 🎉🎉🎉🎉
Ideas just come when they do, there's no formula. Sometimes you get a flash in a rainstorm in the park, and you make scribbles that no one understands, that might become something tangible which people will use in the near future. 🤔 Maybe.
