I'm In A Book

I have been meaning to blog about this for a really long time. A really really long time. It has been on my To Do list for, like, ever! I don't know why I have left it so late, when I should have shouted it from the rooftops as soon as I knew about it - but I think I got a little embarrassed about it! I'm weird like that.

So, 2 years ago in 2009, out of the blue, two lovely lady from HarperCollins (Lindsey Kelk and Catherine Such) emailed me about getting involved with a book they were working on. I got so excited and of course, I agreed to take part.

The book was published and has been in the shops since January 2010 (Yeah...I told I had been meaning to tell you all for a long time now!) It was so amazing to go in to WH Smiths and see it for the first time. But then I cringe over the horrible photos of me, I HATE THEM!!! I didn't think this through, I admit this this is mainly due to inexperience, but at least it goes with the whole "fun" Hello Kitty style! Overall, it's such a cute book so next time you're in WH Smiths, look for a bright pink book called Hello Kitty Fashion Journal. Flick through it and have a giggle at my pages. In my interview I tried to be insightful and inspiring. I hope that comes across when the tweens read it.

Enough of talking, here are some pictures!

There's also another bit of news of something else I was involved with that I've been meaning to show and tell. Keep your eyes peeled! :)
