I’m not doing very well at blogging at the moment. So much is happening and I can’t decide what to blog about. I’ve actually started a blogging list. A little sad I know. I was going to write about my little Aussi win in my last post but decided it needed its own post.
Courtesy of the lovely Christina Sanders at A sense sublime blog I won an Aussi gift package. The only thing is i’m back at uni so it got delivered to my neighbours before my Mum could pick it up. She’s coming up in a few weeks s she’ll bring it then.
Thank you very much!! xx
It’s funny what we can remember. What we got for our third birthday, losing your blanket at four, being given a massive box of costume jewellery at six and the first time I bought Look magazine.
Let me take you back to February 2007. I bought the second edition of the magazine before embarking on a shopping trip with my friends to buy clothes for a school trip to Iceland…the country.
I wonder if the 15-year-old me knew would buy hundreds more of the magazine taking inspiration in shopping aspects of my life but most importantly the career aspect of my life.
I have been a fan of all the weekly features and thought a hole was left when the features such as credit crunch chic and the features with Gok Wan came to a finish although, this hole was quickly filled with new features and when I turn the page to celebs wear high street too.
This summer I was lucky enough to be sent to Beach break live festival by the website I have contributed to student365. I had to work very hard not make the whole article about what was the top festival wears and what people were wearing but being sent somewhere to report on it made me realise that I am going to dedicate my whole life to.
I know what I want to do with my life and that is to make a living off writing. A professional blogger, my own column in the Telegraph fashion section, write for a highly successful fashion magazine. So what am I doing to make my dreams a reality? Well we all have to start somewhere and where better than DIY Week. Spending one of the best weeks and a half of my life writing about B&Q and other DIY stores tells me that I am meant for this life.
If I can enjoy writing about something I know nothing about, i would be on a permanent high if I could write about fashion shows. Now you know why I spend so much time on this blog!!
I go back to everyone has to start somewhere. My blog, I would describe as up-and-coming (if i’m being very possitive). My readership is increasing daily and when I find it making me that happy it confirms that this is what I want to do, dare I make the cliché…my dream.
I blog everyday because it is so important to me. It’s not just about the amazing opportunity to attend the Look Show but that in itself would be fantastic, its the chance to write about things I am so passionate about. Clothes, fashion and Look magazine.
Why I would be suited to it
I’m honest and I’m positive. I know that is what I look for in a blog. I want to read from someone I trust and I want to feel inspired once I’ve finished. All this I strive to do in my work. If it hasn’t been written yet, write it yourself.
