Be a Model for a Day!
We've always been about 'real women'
and now Cucumber is planning a fab shoot with some real women customers - that could be you! We are looking for women of all different ages, shapes and sizes.
We're planning a day of fun and fashion with four lucky winners chosen to do an all day shoot.
There'll be a make up artist and hair stylist to get you prepped, food and drink (something bubbly, we reckon!) and an entire rail of Cucumber Clothing to model.
We'll be taking snaps and videos all day to use all over Cucumber's social accounts and website and the more stories, posts and tweets on the day and after, the better.
The shoot will be held in North London (5 minutes from the tube with easy parking) on
Thursday 29th November from 10 - 4pm
HOW TO ENTER
Take a clear full length photo, front facing, in your favourite Cucumber outfit (feel free to mix in with your own wardrobe - we love it when customers style things up their way).
Send to us via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org with telephone/email contact details, height and dress size with a sentence or two on why you'd like to be a Cucumber model.
You MUST be available for the full amount of time and able to travel to the North London address for the day.
OUR SOCIAL STAR
Every month we highlight a new social media inspiration. Our October pin-up is sensational cool girl Sam Sims, founder of @upallhours, the clever site for imperfect parents of all ages. Full of advice, humour and support for those sometimes lonely spaces in the wee hours of the night (or day!), we can't recommend it (and the podcast, videos and insta feed) highly enough. See our fave video here - spoiler alert - on who would you rather have, Trump or Putin as your dad?!
And yes indeedy, Sam just happens to be a massive Cucumber fan too....
Cucumber in the news
We were super chuffed to be featured in this month's Woman and Home as the best nightwear for temperature control - after all, that's what we are all about - fashion with a purpose. And don't forget that Cucumber will be featured again in a spread next month in Woman and Home - yep, with Nancy and Eileen all dressed up and ready for festivities in sparkly Christmas gear!
And check us out on the lovely Happily Tania site, where founding editor, Tania O'Donnell gives us the big thumbs up.
Cucumber will also be showcased at the Wonderful World of Wellbeing Festival in Harrogate by the fantastic Behind the Woman. And don't forget Behind the Woman will be running a fab twitter competition this month where you can win a simply gorgeous silver Cucumber dressing gown just like that! Follow them on twitter to make sure you know when and how to enter!
And don't forget to check out the great website, Hotflush. They are running a fantastic week-long menopause campaign along with #pelvicroar. On the 16th October you will be able to read what Pelvicroar think about their Cucumber togs, and let's just say we're happy they're so happy!
It's not too late to help us win by nominating us for a Spotlight Award! We know we have all sorts of wonderful customers who get hot for all sorts of reasons, whether from pregnancy hormones or menopause. If you are one of the latter and love your Cucumber, please do nominate us here. We'd love to win!
Cucumber Around the World
We like to think that Cucumber is just about everywhere! We've had enquiries, orders and pics from every corner of the globe.
Autumn is settling in and we love this pic from a Cucumber fan in the Canadian Algonquins surrounded by gorgeous colours.
