another hectic week for blondie...

So, I've finally had 5 minutes to get blogging, as the last few days have been so hectic!
First, I've got some exciting news (well for me anyway) to share with you. If you didn't know I'm a 'Public Speaker' and part of my school team. We compete in lots of competitions through out the UK, so had our first shot at the BPW competition on Wednesday. It was so exciting! I'm the team's chairperson, so It's my responsibility to ensure the meeting runs smoothly!
BEST PART OF THE EVENING WAS... WE WON! YAY!

Please note this is not the real trophy! From Left-Right; Becky, Lauren and Me 
So were off to the semi-finals in February next year - though I can't release too many details, in case our eager competitors get hold of my blog! Still, the confidence you gain from the opportunity is just amazing!

I couldn't exactly give you a low down on my outfit for the evening, as my M&S shirt, that gets whipped from the back of my wardrobe for the event, doesn't really shout 'buy me or regret it,' if I'm honest. Still, It's really important to be presentable, as every mark towards the final score counts!

There was one speech I really enjoyed. It was all about shoes. FULL STOP. But, it was interesting to learn about how many shoes are made in sweatshops, in third world countries.
One point raised was about 'most women having over 20 pairs of shoes in their cupboard,' this made me stop and count mine....
I'd love to know how many shoes you have! More than 20? I doubt that would be too hard...

I'm signing off now, as it's already dark at 4:30, and I'm desperate to get some exciting posts sorted for the weekend - so watch out!

Lots of Love,






p.s. like my new signature? hahaha! I'm basically turning into a Barbie Doll!
