iPad Company Magazine
So! This isn't your normal posing near a pink tree wearing a cute dress post, nor is it one encouraging you to get into the kitchen and spill your heart (and 200g flour and 1tsp baking powder) into a cooking bowl- but something a little more personal. When I started this blog 4 years ago (I know, it's getting on) it was literally somewhere to write about what was going on, and documented things from what I wore to my interview at my local Topshop (little bit overdressed, but one can only learn), my thoughts on not drinking (albeit a bit attitude-y and abrupt) and how I felt leaving university a year later (and then pondering going back).

So, coming back to that 4 years on- things are a little different. Not only am I writing this little corner of the internet full time (or at least giving it my best shot) but in the last couple of weeks a coupla' exciting things have gone down in this part of town so I thought I'd take a little moment or two to share them with you (y'know, incase you haven't seen my 2000+ tweets)!

Let's start with what happened an hour ago. Doing a Google Hangout with my fave Company Magazine was a bit of a surreal experience, even more so being called the 'cover star' of their latest digital prom issue (mega 'asdfghjkl' moment). I'm pretty sure this is one of those things that just won't sink in. I don't want this to get gushy, or speech like but it felt like a bit of a milestone for the old blog and I- so thanks guys for staying tuned, it means a blooming lot. If you fancy seeing me enjoy a waffle with two of my favourite ladies in journalism then you can head here (and download the issue here- it's free!)

Also, if you're interested- I also did an interview with none other than Albert Hammond Jr here- which included playing Jenga, winning a hamper and being a bit of a nervous Purvis (IT'S A STROKE, PEOPLE)- which was something a little different for me, and dare I say it- my first video, ish. Let me know what you think- maybe this is the start of something beautiful ; )

Anyway! In fear of getting carried away by the written word and an over-indulgence of personal chatter I shall leave it here! I'm justifying this gushy catch up post by the fact I don't really have an official blog birthday (it's May some time I think)- so perhaps this can be my equivalent? Thanking each and every one of you for reading, you're all pretty lovely.

  1. Liv, your blog was one of the first that inspired me to begin my own! It's been amazing to see how far you've come and I continue to love reading your posts and coveting your style - you're one of those people who could look good wearing a potato sack! Congratulations on getting to where you are today, I can't wait to see what's to come.

I loved your hangout and video interview with Albert Hammond Jr too - you come across so natural and fun in video, so hopefully more videos/vlogs in future?! : )

  31. What great achievements you've made through this blog ! I wish I'd had the knowledge to start earlier when i wanted to instead of being so tangled up in school and focusing on something I didn't know would appear at some time or another at the end of it, but still, you made a real creative move and look at everything you've just had from it ! Well done for all your success, your blog and posts are always spot-on a perfectly kitsch. We'll keep reading <3
