Star In A Bra-dom!

Okay, so I got lazy with blogging....

Two weeks ago I found out I was in the top 10 of Curvy Kate's Star In A Bra. Insane. Completely insane.

It was Tuesday 5th April and I was on my lunch break. I checked Facebook on my phone (I'd been checking that and my emails ALL MORNING!) and had finally come to the conclusion that I hadn't made it into the top 10 as I hadn't heard anything from Curvy Kate. I saw on their page that the top 10 had been announced and somebody (Liz Divall!) had written a congratulatory post on a group wall to a few other the other girls and ME....yes me!! I was in a state of disbelief, half not believing it. My boyfriend went and checked and it was true! Eek! My head was swimming, thinking about the impending photoshoot and what would be asked of us top 10 girlies, the new round of voting, trying to convince everyone who voted first time round to vote again....

It was also the same day as my story in the local paper, the Sentinel, was printed. I was rather aprehensive about having an interview and photoshoot to be perfectly honest. I'm not the most interesting person, I don't fit in well, don't drink, would rather stay at home and crochet, and I like dolls and Japanese animated movies! Still, the reporter and I chatted for a while and then I went over to the 'Roundhouse' for my shoot, which was made 100000x easier by the fantastic photographer, Clare Lewis, who I also went to college with incidentally! Here's the link anyway...

I will blog in a few days about the photoshoot experience as it will just make this blog far too lengthy, and we don't want that, do we?! I'll leave you with the newspaper article in paper form....



TTFN!
