be in style, I'm featured

I was very flattered to be asked to appear as one
of the "Best of the Web - Style Blogs of the Week"
on Be in Style fashion blog.

I don't feel like I've been blogging for that long, or
that I'm particularly established yet, and I'm still finding
my feet/niche/reason-for-blogging, so I'm always very
shocked when I recieve an email request like this.

I forget that people actually view it, it's more like a scrapbook
for myself, where I record my daily outfits to see what worked
 and what didn't. Each outfit sparks another idea, looks evolve, items
get tweaked and altered, accessories are added or subtracted.

It's interesting, as I studied writing and editing, but I could never
genuinely get into it, hence I hardly ever pen anything of substance
on here. A colleague mentioned one day that I remind her of her
 daughter, a graphic designer, in the way that I'm a very visual person.
Then the penny dropped, I love making pretties.

 I've been thinking about doing a bit of study pertaining to photography
and photo editing. It is frustrating to not be able to produce the images
I would like to, due to lack of technical knowledge.

giveaway - want legs like these?

Earlier this week I wore my heart print tights from Target.
I purchased two pair last year because I was so enamoured
with them, however the second pair remain in their packet... 
 so I decided to give them away. All you need to do to enter
is A) be a follwer and B) tell me one thing you love: it can be
anything from coffee to kittens. Best of luck. I will draw the
winner in one week via random number generator and publish
the winner's name in a post on Friday June 1st 2012. :)
