For those of you who may not have noticed, Look Magazine is holding a competition offering the chance to blog front row from their LFW show. And this is my shameless entry for it. (As well as a little bit like an extended "About Me")
I've been blogging for a while now, I see it more as a way of sharing thoughts with people and getting to know others in a way more creative than sitting passively on Facebook or in a darkened, dripping room on a Friday night. I know that most of my friends don't "get it", and in all honesty I don't truly expect them to. Each to their own, and such. All I know is that I enjoy having a place where I can just offload my thoughts, share photos of outfits (normally purchased ridiculously reduced on ebay and from charity shops), and, most importantly, talk and have discussions with other bloggers (slow burning addiction to twitter, now obvious).
As for me ("The Girl Behind The Blog", aha), I'm just about to start my second year reading English at the University of Liverpool, after having completed A Levels in English Literature, Art, German and History. I'm slowly getting more heavily involved with the university's magazine "Ellipsis", particularly the marketing and editing sides of things, which was founded last year. The media (specifically published, as opposed to radio and television) has always intrigued me, and my growing pile of magazines can be held testament to this.
Winning the competition would be an incredible opportunity. I've never had the chance to go to LFW before, despite essentially living there. I went to Somerset House last fashion week, just to see what it was like, and there was an almost palpable rush of activity and anticipation for the evening's shows. Never before have I seen so many DSLRs in one place. The idea of actually being a part of this, rather than being a mere observer... Well, I can't even imagine how I'd react. (Just give me about five minutes to blog about it?)
ps, i'm just off out for a nando's lunch (monday=20% student discount!!) and when i get home i'm going to make myself a very, very large mug of tea and reply to all your comments. are there any other blogs you recommend i look at?
