Deary me, can you believe it's been just over a month since I last posted? Cor blimey. I have to say that for a while I felt a little bad for not posting, but I had to remind myself that after all this is my blog and I'd rather not post for a while than to write something half-heartedly. Plus to be honest I've been feeling a little down and unconfident recently, so it's been pretty darn nice to be quite seperate from my blog and to just focus on myself. I hope you all understand!

Just to update you, since my last post I've attended London Fashion Week (where I was photographed by Vogue Italia would you believe!), modelled for Tabio's A/W campaign (which should be on the website soon) and styled the window for my local British Heart Foundation branch. I've also recently landed my first job as a freelance stylist which is pretty exciting! I'm currently working with a large publishing company who are putting together a knitwear book, where I am in charge of styling, sourcing clothes and props, plus finding the perfect locations for the shoots. The first shoot took place on Wednesday which was brilliant, even more so as I had asked Rose to be the model, it was lovely to finally meet her. Today I also took part in a short talk with Amy, Kristabel and two others on blogging at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which was quite insightful.
In other news, last month I found out that Jazzabelle's Diary has made the final shortlist for this year's Cosmo Blog Awards! I honestly never expected to make the shortlist in the slightest, I really am so happy. It's so lovely to know that so many of you like and appreciate my blog, so thank-you. Even though I know I haven't been the best blogger recently, it would mean the world if you could vote for me here under the 'Best Established Fashion Blog' category. Thank-you! Love, Jazzabelle.

    Remember you saying about the freelance work at LFW - hope it's every bit as good as it sounds! If you ever get so busy that you need anyone to help I'd love to be of assistance (totes fo' free of corsh). Aaaaanyway, those Kooples shorts... Rebecca and I were discussing at length how jel we are of you having them/ them looking so darn good on you xxx
