Kasia Provides Softer Toilet Tissue...Kasia Provides Luxury In Life

Don't you hate it when you go into a public toilet and find bog standard (pardon the pun) toilet roll? It can be rougher than sandpaper or worse still, you get there, and there is no paper at all!!

This week my Luxury In Life Campaign set out to provide Londoners with something a little bit special when they visited public toilets. For those of you with, how shall we put it, ‘over active imaginations’ sorry to disappoint, but my weeks escapades were far from risqué. I decided to swap the horribly rough, tissue-paper-like loo roll found in so many public toilets across London, with 'Andrex Limited Collection Subtle and Stylish Toilet Tissue'. For obvious reasons, I wasn’t able to capture anyone’s reactions in the cubicles when they discovered the exquisitely soft rolls, as appose to the usual crap they expected (pun most definitely intended). However, for this week’s post, I have put together a collage which documents my accomplishments, as I think, despite being mostly made up off bogs, it looks pretty cool.

Kasia Provides A Fragrant Atmosphere... Kasia Provides Luxury In Life

This installment of my Luxury in Life Campaign was thought up on a sunny morning last month while sitting at my good ol’ London bus stop. Rather than enjoying the crisp, fresh morning air (much needed I must say, as I was out of coffee that morning) I sat down with a plonk on the not too comfortable hard seating (the ‘Luxury in Life’ hamster in my brain starts getting on his running wheel at this point) —and whack! I get hit with a stink that stops me in my tracks (and stuns the hamster for a good 30 seconds). Through the dull hum of pollution that seems to loiter all over our city, a distinct stench attacks my nostrils in such a profound way that I felt personally violated! Judging from the empty cans, discarded kebab, and massive puddle, somebody’s night bus didn't make it in time. By this point, my trusty hamster had dusted off his waistcoat, readjusted his bowler hat and jumped back on the wheel…my brain was working overdrive. There was definitely some Luxury-In-Life work that could be done here. 

Many of you may think that enduring this torment and abuse is a delicacy reserved for us in South East London, but after some amateur detective work (starting in Baker Street, of course!) I soon found that citizens all over the metropolis were being subjected to similarly horrid odours…all without blinking an eye.

Londoners! I salute your stiff upper lip! And…

…this week, I decided to reward my fellow Londoners with the invisible (well almost) gift of freshness. I chose to concentrate my efforts on the transport network, as I believe that's where we may be suffering the most.

The faint aroma of cherries wafting through tube carriages, far-from-new buses with ‘that new car smell', subways scented with vanilla (I think the ice cream van parked outside Oxford Street Station made a killing that day!), and train passengers, some rushing, some relaxing, all treated to the light and refreshing smell of pears to brighten up their day…

A special thanks to A. Sivakumaran who bravely followed me around London to photograph my activities and most importantly made me look like less of a strange woman sticking Air Fresheners all over the place. You can check out  his website here.

I hope the photos below give you an idea of what I got up to this week.

Kasia Provides A Cool Drink...Kasia Provides Luxury In Life

My new collection was finally completed last week, so I had a little extra time on my hands before the approaching graduate show. This week was a perfect time for me to officially kick of my campaign to provide Londoners with a little Luxury In Life.

I decided to make the most of the sunny weather and treat my fellow Londoners to a refreshing treat in the stuffy summer streets of the city.

In parks, on the tube, in shops and even in traffic jams...300 lucky Londoners were treated to ice cold bottles of mineral water when they needed it most. 

I met so many interesting people this week, and got so much positive feedback about my jewellery that the numerous trips to Lidl and week long back ache were more than worth it!! 

I hope the photos below sufficiently share my fantastic experience with you.

P.S. My new collection will be displayed at the 'Central Saint Martins Jewellery Degree Show 2011'. I will be posting photos of the new collection shortly. If you like what you see, please come to the show and have a look at the pieces for real.

CSM Jewellery Degree Show
18th - 23rd June 2011
12:00-20:00 Monday to Wednesday

Kasia Provides Luxury In Life

Kasia Piechocka Jewellery is not aimed at one type of person. It is not exclusive to a certain class, gender or age. My jewellery is for anybody that wants to add something special to their look.

I like to think my jewellery provides a little bit of luxury to the wearer. I got thinking about what this meant and how I could get this message across to the public. Rather then the usual tactic of polluting peoples minds with even more definitions of what they MUST buy to achieve luxury, I wanted to take a different approach. I wanted to make an individual feel luxurious so they can define it themselves as appose to having luxury defined to them. 

The busy London lifestyle often means we forget the feeling of luxury. I think that many of us are chasing endless goals or dreams, believing that whatever we have achieved and wherever we are in life is not good enough. By providing a stranger with a unexpected treat or luxury, no matter how small, they feel special, they feel good and most of all they smile.

I have set up this blog to document my campaign to put smiles on the faces of London by providing them with little luxuries in life. 

Follow me and my mission to provide Luxury In Life...
