In some aspects yesterday was quite a usual day for me: I treated myself to a Starbucks (thoughts on the new logo? meh), explored the Victoria and Albert Museum and went charity shopping - the only difference was that this time I had a camera and crew following me around. A few months ago I was contacted by Georgia from a new independent production company, Purple Boot Media, to ask if I'd be interested in being featured in a mini documentary style webisode focusing on blogging for their final major project at university. After months of planning, yesterday was set to be the first of  three days filming me going about my 'everyday' life to find out more about myself and my blog. I met up with three members of the production team, Suzanne, Rachel and Joel, early in the morning to film inside the Victoria and Albert Museum before it was open to the public, where they took numerous takes of me being interviewed, wandering around and photographing anything that interested me. We then went to my favourite charity shop where I talked about my love for secondhand clothes, why I shop in charity shops and what I was wearing. Plus we all couldn't resist trying on some clothes and buying a few bargains for ourselves! I could ramble on forever, but I'm pretty darn exhausted to be honest. Please do read Joel's post on the Purple Boot Media blog for a much more witty, funny and detailed account of our day! Love, Jazzabelle.

  1. That sounds like such an exciting experience, if a little nerve-wracking!
    I hope we get to see the video in the future, as I'd love to see your V&A and charity shop wanderings.

  4. Haha, I loved this post, it seemed all normal starbucks...bit of outfit...lovely photos then boom massive bit of filming equipment. Hope the day was fun, it sounds it - especially the V&A out of hours, that's like mega-celebrity-store-closing-shopping, but better.

  17. I hope we can see that documentary! I was wondering what was all you tweeted about hehe On another note, I love that look on you. That skirt is gorgeous! And about what you asked in my blog, I bought 3 bracelets and a pattern to make my own poncho. I think I'm addicted to second hand things now. It won't be long until I visit your charity shop! xxx

  27. Wow, this is so exciting! Can't wait to see the finished project.

    Not keen on the new Starbucks logo. Not as bad as the Gap fiasco, but why do brands keep insisting on messing with a good thing?!

  32. woah, the new logo is weird!
    how do you manage to find such stunning clothes...it makes me insanely jealous! the outfit is gorgeous:)

  33. The new logo really weirded me out when I first saw it! I wasn't expecting it to change, so it was kind of shocking, but now I'm starting to get used to it. I might have been swayed by their "Buy A Drink, Get a Free Petite Dessert" promotion, though. I'm easily won over with free cupcakes.

  34. Ohhh how was it jazz? Vicki and i had to do something similar recently and i wasn't comfortable at all (under statement!)
    You look lovely as per. The hat suits you to a T!

  37. Starbucks logo = yuck. I think it needs some black, it just looks like the printer ran out of ink! Also, you look lovely as always!

    P.S. I just found my grey scarf with the remains of a helium balloon in it from the Vouchercodes party and had a right old giggle.
