My Blogger Feature in Look Magazine...


Hi fellow bloggers! What a surreal week! If you've followed me recently you probably know that I won a blogging competition with LOOK Magazine in February - and this week they did a feature on some of the bloggers who took part! I was one of them, and my feature is below! It's amazing! Although, just to clear up i'm not 'creating' anyones blogs - i'm merely enhancing from behind the scenes! But that's for another day :)



Oh and also, I technically didn't meet Olivia, but she did smile at us and say hi and thank you - weird, err... you're welcome Ol! And the 'package' was a t-shirt, a couple of days later hehe. But other than that - HOW COOL! It sunk in today that i'm actually in a magazine - pretty bloody surreal hey!

There was lots that I said in the interview that didn't make it in. One of the points was how grateful I am to everyone who reads my blog and comments on it! When I won I think I was a major underdog in the competition, in that I had nowhere near as many followers as the others - and it wasn't long before that, that it was kept as my blog for uni!

That's why I feel the pressure to maintain it for you guys!!! BUT i bloody love doing it. So I would like to say a big fat thank you to everyone of you reading! And I would recommend ALL of you going in for the new round of the competition - because it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me!!!

PS Big thank you to Miss Lara Lain, Look's Marketing exec and my lovely blogging pal! We went for drinks on those balcony bits in Covent Garden this week (I thought they were strictly for posh people only - but I guess they weren't going to say no to a Marketing Exec and a blogger featured in LOOK were they...ha)

PPS Did you notice the lovely pink button top left? I'm going to try my luck at getting nominated for a Cosmo Blog Award (i'm sure you're all sick of hearing that!) But if you do enjoy my blog - I would love a nomination from you! X

Congrats! I bought Look today and found you in there :) I've just written a blog post about the feature - I was honestly so inspired by your story. Like Kirsty, I've also shied (if that's how you spell it??) away from entering the comp before. My blog is only a small one and I never thought I'd stand a chance! But this time round, I'm gonna give it a go. Thank you x x

You know, I just wrote a blog post about feeling a little lost with my blog, then I read this and realised why I did it in the first place.

You're very inspiring.
