Castletown Connexion Blog Competition Update

Unfortunately, I did not make it through to the top 5 in the Castletown Connexion blog competition. I am quite disappointed as I really wanted the position because it would not only have been fun but would have looked good on my resume; such is life, I suppose.

Anyway the video I shot for it turned out a lot better than I thought it would; I was a bit nervous when I was being filmed as I’ve never been on camera before. But luckily I only had a few slip ups and did a pretty good job. I was never going to get enough Facebook likes to get through as one of the two Facebook choices and unfortunately the judges didn’t see what they were looking for in me.

Two of my friends, however, got through–Lucy Jackson as a people’s choice and Melanie McDowall as a judge’s choice–and Mel ended up winning the competition! I’m very glad she won because her and Lucy both have a great (yet very different) sense of style and are very dedicated to fashion. Check out my video and see what you think. I’ll upload some of my other blogs that I did for the competition a bit later. Expect more blog posts from me in the next few months as uni is just about over for the year which means I will have heaps of time on my hands to blog about all my fashion finds and lusts!


Castletown Connexion fashion blogger competiton

So as I discussed in my last post, I entered the Castletown Connexion fashion blogger competition last week and on Friday got a call to inform me I’d made it through to the 1st round of semi-finals. I’m excited!

The stage of the competition is a fashion video. On Thursday I’ll have picked an outfit from Universal Store which will be modeled by a friend of mine. I’ll be discussing the outfit I choose and promoting the centre and the store on camera.

Once the video is uploaded to Facebook people have the chance to vote on the video they like best. 3 judge’s choices and 2 with the most votes on Facebook will proceed though to the 2nd round of semi-finals.

I’m going to Castletown tomorrow to pick and outfit for my model—except I have no idea what look I’m going to go for yet. While I’m not modeling the clothes I also need a fantastic outfit and I’m stumped at the moment as to what I’m going to wear. I’ll possibly wear something from another Castletown store to promote the centre.

Wish me luck! I’ll post more blog entries soon.
