I know I haven't written in yonks, not for any good reason really. I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and is sufficiently plumper than this time last month, because I know I am! I've had loads of work this term, made more pressing by the fact that it's my third and (gasp!) final year of uni. Three years is just the right amount of time to settle in somewhere and feel you know what you're doing - and then it's time to leave. I'm applying to drama schools at the moment, which is quite terrifying, so if I get in then at least that's another year to be spent avoiding the real world. I have my first audition on Friday, so I've been preparing for that recently. I'm also doing a play in London next week called 'Party' at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden, so if you live in London you should definitely come and watch. It's a comedy about some students who think they can set up a political party in their garden shed. Needless to say, they're not the brightest bunch!
I've also recently been avoiding blogging because Blogger seems to have completely and utterly messed up my layout and stuff. I changed my template, searched loads of help articles and even dug into the hidden depth of HTML and I still can't fix it. Basically all the stuff in my sidebar is fixed and I can't move it around or change it. I can't even delete it from within the HTML itself - every time I try I get an error message. And as a self-diagnosed neat freak (technical term there) I can't stand it when everything's messy. So the Pages tab is now down there for some reason and I deleted everything I could from the sidebar in an attempt to sort the problem out, to no avail. I used to have lots of links to stuff in the sidebar, including lots of lovely blogs, but that's all gone now, for which I apologise. I've been tempted to delete the blog and create a new one, or transfer it all over to a Wordpress blog to get rid of the issue but it all seemed like to much effort to be doing with right now, so for now it will remain a mess. Grrrr, stupid Blogger platform.
Although I haven't been posting though, I have been doing some fashion photography for Epigram, which is my University's newspaper. So I thought I'd post some of the photos up here. The first one we did was at the start of term and was all about reworking different trends. The second one was a kind of grungy style shoot done in my creepy basement (cobwebs and grime occasionally come in useful, who knew!) and the third was a Christmas shoot, also done in my house (although thankfully not said creepy basement).
Here's some of my favourites from the first photoshoot. The model is Suzi, the stylists Cesca Clayton and Lizzy Bullock and make-up artist Coco Creme. And obviously I took the photos.
I will post some images from the other two shoots soon, and hopefully I'll post more regularly again!
Thanks for reading, Harriet. x
