YOU know those odd and delightful occasions when you go to a party or a launch night and you get a goodie bag containing a couple of perfume samples and some money-off vouchers for hairdressers, if you’re lucky?
Well, apparently the A-listers who attend things like the MTV awards walk away with unbelievably lavish goodie bags laden with all sorts of pricey clobber from top-grade toiletries to gadgets and accessories. It’s as if they’ve won a trolley dash at Harvey Nicks.
You’d think the super-rich wouldn’t be bothered about such freeloading but the truth is, everyone loves a little gratis gift, no matter how much cash they have to flash.
I’ve always adored getting free stuff – fancy foods, the latest drinks, CDs, DVDs – I rarely get round to eating, drinking, listening to or watching this stuff, I just like receiving it, opening the Jiffy bags at the office.
The best freebie I’ve ever had, aside from holidays and an electric scooter (honestly!) was liposuction! What should I try to blag next, I wonder?
