Hmmm...notsomuch.



I'm in the Dawanda Lovebook this summer. It's a little lookbook they put together for press and they asked me to feature this time. Often when people ask me for interviews and such (yah, I'm reeeeally famous), they want a photo, which always fills me with dread as I'm not very comfortable in front of the camera (unless I've had a cocktail). So Ben said 'What about this one?' A comedy photo from a trip to the beach a few years ago. I said 'Why not, no-one will take it seriously.'

Now, looking at it, I'm not so sure...





Oh dear. (Yes that is grass between my teeth).


While I'm here I would really like to recommend Dawanda. They have it sorted over there seller-wise, and did vouchers and all sorts of user-friendly stuff long before etsy. Have a lovely weekend. I'm going to hide under a pillow and wait for the dawanda lovebook to go out of circulation. x

  1. Exotic dancer? But is that a Norfolk beach behind you - that would give the picture a more homely air!

  2. I think it's perfect. Not too serious.
    And well done...it's great exposure. This week, dodgy snap; next year, Mario Testino.

  8. Know what you mean about articles and photos, I haven't been able to steel myself to read the Grazia piece yet and was very glad it was only a weekly! All good publicity though!

  14. Hi Francesca! I love your blog, why didn't I check it out earlier?! I loved your Smithsstory (well..your story about the Smithsstory ;-)) it made me laugh out loud. About your picture dilemma, you're not alone in this one: when I finally dared to place my picture on my blog someone commented: that black blob on the left side of you, is that your husband you cut off the picture? Erm..yeah, and thanks for noticing! So you will be the girl with the grass between her teeth and I will be the girl who has a blob growing from the right side of her body...I don't know which one is worse, heehee
    (This comment is fast becoming a Smiths story don't you think? :-)) Have a lovely day and let's not worry about the pictures..it's not so bad as we think it is, I guess...

  15. fran, you have made my day, a lovely chat with you and then a this photo to follow it up. that's what i love about you, i cannot fail to read a post by you, an email or a chat in person without having a big silly grin left on my face... this photo leaves me the same way, i'd say it's perfectly perfect indeed :)
