Rachel and Amy at British Style Bloggers have just launched a body image campaign, asking the media to diversify its representation of women. They want to make a real difference and want people to get involved in Blogger Challenges, the first challenge to make a collage entitled This Is Me - showing the world who you really are. You can see more information about the campaign here.
This is my poor effort, I have very little skills when it comes to using polyvore or making collages so I did this instead...
The first picture is of me and my best friend Laura on a day trip to Bath, I chose this picture because it was such a fun day. We were talking really loudly on the bus and the old women turned their hearing aids off! haha. We went on a walking tour and visited some of the places mentioned in Jane Austen books.
The second picture was taken on my second birthday and I chose it because I look really happy (probably because of all the presents and jelly and ice cream!)
The next picture was taken when I went to see Britney at the o2 in London. Britney is someone I adore although most of my CD collection is filled with New Order and Patrick Wolf records, not very pop at all. I admire her because she is strong and has overcome difficulties in her life. Seeing her in London was the best live experience I've ever had, even better than The Libertines or Morrissey!
The fourth picture is of my lovely dog Sookie who I talk about all the time, I'm a bit of a loser and have her as the background on my phone and let her sleep at the bottom of my bed. I had her for Christmas last year and she's the best present I've ever received.
The next picture is of some books because in case you didn't already know I work in a library. I love my job and it's what I want to do as a career and not just until I find something else. A lot of public libraries are facing cuts as I have mentioned in previous posts if you want to stop this there are protests on Saturday and you can find out more here.
The cupcakes are from The Hummingbird Bakery which I always visit when I go to London, I usually just get one with a cup of tea but everyone was so fed up of me going on about these cakes all the time so I brought a box home with me.
The little Welsh lady outfit makes me laugh, I had to wear this on St Davids day in school. I was born in Wales and have always lived here. It's very nice, you should pay us a visit!
The final picture is of Elphaba from the musical Wicked which is the best musical EVER and has the best song in it- Defying Gravity. I have seen it a few times in London and I cry when I hear DG, such a powerful song and my all time favourite.
Let me know if you take part in the challenge so I can check out your collage.
Is there anything that most people don't know about you?
