SECRET SERVICES: Your Very Own Pocket Concierge

Did you know that you can hire a celebrity chef for your next dinner party?
Or have your oven cleaned whilst enjoying an aromatherapy massage?
Or hire the very latest designer gown, handbag and vintage jewellery?
Or hire someone to wrap all your Christmas presents?

And who said you don’t get anything for free these days… did you know you can
fly long-haul with a free nanny service, enjoy a shopping spree with a gorgeous ‘Bag Boy’ who carries all your heavy bags or swap your wardrobe for nothing?

Make your life easier with your very own pocket concierge, Cary Whitley’s indispensable Secret Services guide to fast-tracking the very best services, gifts, shops, destinations, inspiring ideas and more, that is essential reading for every discerning, time-poor, person.

‘Friends were always calling me to ask me things like … where could they get an unusual or personalised gift? Or did I know someone who could make them a bespoke swimsuit? Or did I know a house for hire for their 40th birthday that could sleep 42? So I decided to open up, not only my contact book, but my bulging filing cabinets, to write this book,’ explains Cary, ‘For years I’ve compiled lists of fabulous products, wonderful shops to visit, people that offer brilliant and often unique services and great tips and websites. I love people who are passionate about their work and provide a fantastic personal service.’

As a busy publisher, writer, dedicated shopper and mother, Cary is well placed to hunt down the very best life saving and life enhancing services and ideas, designed to appeal to people looking for unique and inspiring suggestions. ‘Life is often very stressful’ says Cary, ‘So it’s great to make time to do some of the lovely things featured in Secret Services for yourself and your nearest and dearest or even better allow others to do them for you.’

Prior to setting up her one-woman publishing company, Fab Publishing, and writing and researching Secret Services: your very own pocket concierge, Cary designed and printed theweddingfile - a luxury personal organiser for brides-to-be (

To fund her publishing ventures she has worked in the television and conference industries, for magazines, as a stand-up comedian, as an extra in a movie, and as a singer - even performing in Brixton prison. For several years she worked as the autocue operator for Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, but turned down the opportunity of working for a day as Tom Cruise’s autocue operator in favour of a hot date with her then ‘new’ boyfriend (which paid off as they are now married!)
