From The Archive: 2013

With magazine placements on the side, 2013 was the last year I juggled blogging as a side gig. Things get a bit girlier in the style department too, with a lorra love for the sixties and a 'hive!

When I was at Primary school, the idea of wearing a starch ridden shirt, elasticated tie (yes, I was that kid), pleated pinafore dress and thick woolly tights- was somewhat of a nightmare. It wasn’t fun, it wasn’t trendy- and it certainly wasn’t cool. Flip forward just over ten years, and hey, it’s all I want to wear- minus the elasticated tie (most of the time…I jest). With pinafore dresses and dungarees now taking over a large amount of my ‘coveting’ lists (having sadly left Woolworths plastic lunch boxes behind), and many shift dresses of mine looking incomplete without the poking out of a white pointy collar- it seems primary school is now pretty cool.

So, when the super babes over at Boohoo.com got in touch a couple of weeks ago promoting their very exciting new competition #GlobalStyler- I couldn’t wait to get involved and parade a piece from their newest collection in one of the most quintessentially British parts of London (in music terms anyway), Abbey Road- the home of Abbey Road studios and a fair few incredible records, including, well, The Beatles Abbey Road. Now, I know listing The Beatles as a favourite band isn’t overly original- but hey, I can’t lie- they’ve got a few alright songs in the bag (with some of my favourite lyrics being today’s post title) and after embarrassingly trying to cross that zebra crossing several times during an apparent peak traffic time (with a very patient best friend on the sidelines), I was fully absorbed in the North London spirit.

Anyway, Boohoo are aiming to get bloggers (and non-bloggers) across the globe wearing their favourite Boohoo piece in order to support #GlobalStyler- a competition in which you can download the above speech bubble, add your location and Instagram/tweet yourself using the hashtag in your favourite Boohoo get up. The prize? A holiday with your best friend to a destination of your choice- not. too. shabby. For more details click here.

Additionally, I’m sorry it’s been so long since my last post (well, it feels like it). I was feeling a little uninspired and took a mini-blogging break to reorganise myself and have a little pick me up rest. I know it sounds silly, but I’d been feeling pretty overwhelmed by the amount of posts about bloggers lately (Suzy Menkes’ fashion week hubub, the importance of bloggers, what have you) and wanted to take a little step back from it all. I’m happy to have my mojo back and feel far less sensitive than, erm, a week ago? (get a grip, Liv). Anyway, here’s to more awkward posing, interviews and recipes you don’t have to be Marry Bezzle to bake!
