New Year, New Job

As I explained before, I’m starting a new job. On Tuesday..

This time last year I was flu-y and bored, which led to much pondering on my life. I was resolute that five months after graduation it was time to really start getting known in the industry. [Although that may seem impatient to many, I should elucidate that my first internship was seven years prior to graduation.]

Well, 2011 was all I could have hoped for – and more.

I worked alongside Sasha at LibertyLondonGirl.com for the best part of the year – which has been an honour, a privilege and an education to say the least!
I attended London Fashion Week AW11 for Modabot.de and BLOW PR’s BLOWonline
I blogged for Hudson Jeans for seven months
I started writing for Ligature magazine
I consulted for Beaujais
I had my writing published in 1883 and SHOP magazines
I assisted Anna Trevelyan and Nicola Formichetti, during which time I suggested Obey My Demand lingerie, which Lady Gaga wore throughout her Born This Way video.
I began blogging for the Huffington Post and Dazed Digital
I went to Paris (for the first time!) with The Shirt Company – which was an adventure and a half.
I attended London Fashion Week SS12 with LLG – meeting and working with the fabulous Briony and Katie B.
I started trialling trainers and fitness classes, working predominantly with the fantastic Dean Callis
I started styling (including look books and a main fashion spread in Matchbook magazine) which culminated in some freelance work with the fashion team at Stylist magazine

Oh, and I got engaged! [See my Wedding inspirations here]

I have really worked and worked and worked – so much so that my only New Year’s Resolution this year is to stress less and have more fun! But you know what? It was all worth it, not least because I’m beginning 2012 with a very exciting new job which will no doubt bring more adventures and many a late night: I’ll be working at Fashion East with the fabulous Lulu Kennedy, who has just been awarded an MBE no less! I am so excited about 2012 and so grateful to everyone who made 2011 so fantastic! Happy New Year everyone.

What’s new pussycat?

Well quite a lot actually.

For starters I’ve added some new jobs to my ever-expanding list.  (Check out my portfolio to see just how out of control it is..)

I’m now a blogger for a big American brand and have started writing features for Dazed Digital and Ligature magazine (which I fell in love with from the first moment I clapped eyes on it).  So more than ever I’m a busy bee on the look out for fab stories.  It’s all very exciting.

In other news I’ve joined Tumblr – not for myself mind.  But for The Shirt Company.  We wanted to start a blog and let customers have an insight into our day-to-day lives.  Check it out ——-> here

On a completely different topic – I’m over the moon today as I’ve discovered I’ve lost 5lb (intentionally, you understand, and boy, it’s not been easy!)

I’m counting down the weeks until I’m off on holiday to Berlin, where I once lived for a blissful year.  I say blissful… I was writing my dissertation at the time and gaining weight by the hour on a diet of Bratwurst, Frikadellen and Brot.  So I’ve sworn to myself I will not return to Berlin (the scene of the crime) with the same weight it made me put on.  I’ve got a little over 3 weeks.  Here’s hoping I can lose 5lb more.

Keep your fingers crossed for me and in the meantime gorge on some visual delights from Berlin circa 2009.
