Essentials Magazine Feature

Happy Monday everyone. What a gorgeous weekend we had. I’ve had quite a hectic few days one way or another but I’m feeling totally energised by the ups and ups that life seems to have dealt me at the moment. My whirlwind started on Thursday with 24hours in London and ended back down on earth selling my wares at a sunny car boot sale yesterday morning.

But there was much excitement in the My Pollyanna household this weekend when the April edition of Essentials magazine landed on the shelves. I could try to be really cool about it and pretend that this kind of thing happens all the time, but in all honesty, I am so excited it’s unreal. When I started along this blogging path I could never have imagined that I would be looking at myself in print, in a national magazine. I’m a little proud too if truth be told.

My Pollyanna Essentials Magazine

Sandwiched between Spring pastel fashion pages and Secrets of the savvy shoppers article, the What You’re Wearing feature falls on page 23. I’m also alongside the lovely Frances from the blog School Run Style (who I met at the Gap/Red magazine event last week and can confirm she is just as stylish in the flesh as she is in print!). Michelle from My Fashionable 40s blog and Rosanna whose blog is Silver Brogues.

    Hi, I just found you via Michelle, Rosanna and Frances who you were also featured with as I wanted to know who the other stylish lady was who I’ve not come across before. Love your polished chic look in the magazine and love your blog too!

    Hello, I’ve been reading your lovely blog for a while now Laura but this is my first comment! I saw your little post on Instagram about this wonderful piece of news, but I’ve only just had a chance to have a little look. Well done, it looks great – how exciting to be in a magazine – you should feel really pleased with yourself!

    Huge congrats Lovely – you should be very proud! It’s one of those really weird “is this really happening moments??” Your blog is fantastic and to have achieved so much in a short space of time is brilliant. Plus I’m glad to know you and call you a friend…loved our time in London last week! Looking forward to further fashion adventures soon! xxx
