The Scottish Widow

Have you heard of the Scottish Widows? If you are UK based you have probably seen her figure grace your screen at some stage or another.

I was at a conference yesterday and one of the speakers is a former Scottish Widows employee. He spoke about the importance of market research, and used Scottish Widows as one of his examples. He also let something rather interesting slip…

Although the Scottish Widow changes from time to time, certain things about the new ‘Widow’ always remain the same.

The Scottish Widow is ALWAYS 5’11”, ALWAYS has size 7 feet and ALWAYS has a 34C bra size.

Interesting, huh?

Competition: Where would you like to live in London?

Notting Hill, London

I have written a bit about property in London before. You can’t really escape the effect it has on the capital – with recent research showing that the average monthly rent across the UK rose for the third year running, you can be certain that London is leading the trend.

According to Endsleigh Insurance, the ‘figures indicate that despite the challenging economic times, the lettings market has remained buoyant’. This is particularly true in London, where demand for rental properties grows as jobs and the London lifestyle continue to bring people to the city. I could bore you all day with the latest property data, but instead I want to take a look at the lighter side of London property!

You may have noticed a new feature on this blog – a weekly (amateur) photo of a place in London that I would rather like to live. I thought it might be nice to hear where you would most like to live in London, so how about a little competition to get you talking?

Please leave a comment below stating where in the capital you would most like to live – and if you can give a reason, all the better. I will collate the comments and we can see where most people would like to call home.

I will pick a winner at random who will win £200 worth of vouchers that you can spend on hotels, theatre tickets or in restaurants – and if you want any suggestions on how to spend them, I’m sure I can help!
