Although we live in an increasingly digital age I still love the printed page. The indepth articles! The glam editorial photoshoots! (Tulisa needs to sit up straight though, or she’s going to fall off that stool.) So I was excited to see my cheeky chops in monthly fash, slap and sauce glossy Company magazine, as part of a feature on young women who volunteer. Over the past six years I’ve volunteered on and off in four different Oxfam shops (not that I like to mention it, but I currently spend about four hours each week in Oxfam Originals), so it’s nice to recieve a little bit of recognition for all the time and skills I’ve donated to the charity. Of course, I do so because willingly and don’t the Queen to invite me round for tea and Victoria Sponge at Buckingham Palace, but it still feels like a warm and fuzzy little thank you.
My mouth also gave an excited ‘squeeeee!‘ to see a quartet of beautiful British style bloggers in the magazine: llymlrs, The Magpie Girl, Wolf Whistle and Love From Lou Lou. Full disclosure: I did tell a little white lie, as I’m not an office temp. As I have more than one job I couldn’t think of a convenient, lady mag-appropriate job title. All the lasses in these mags appear to be students, or have non-specific mediaaaaah roles.
Thanks to Catherine for interviewing me, and to Oxfam Lisa for putting my name forward.
