Week 9 Ashley and Laurie Linkup + Video

I have a funny suprise for week 9 of our linkup. (I had forgotten all about it as it was filmed way back in August ) It’s a video from JD Williams of me introducing myself and talking about shoes and stuff!

“…If you have ever been filmed talking whilst a room full of crew look on, then you will know how nerve wracking it can be…”



If you have been filmed talking whilst a room full of crew look on, this you will know it can be nerve wracking! Plus afterwards it’s very strange to see yourself on a big screen but at least I’m smiling. I have to admit it was lots of fun but I was very tired the next day.

You see I am a member of the ‘Colour Council along with  Catherine who I am sure you know from Not dressed as Lamb Blog  we are part of J D Williams brand new campaign. As such we write style tips and photograph the clothes in our own style for JD williams.

Here we all are on the day of the shoot!

I am sure you know how a link up works, but if not a quick recap for you…

When and where:

Every Thursday from 7am, on both our blogs.


Any post on any subject you like from the last week. Instagram pics welcome too! (Please note your links are added are in random order.)


  1. You will discover new blogs to read and other people can discover your blog too. Win win!
  2. Laurie and I will each pick someone to feature each week from the week before, on both our blogs.
  3. It’s going to be lots of fun.

Link-up Etiquette

“We dont like rules, anything goes…just play nice and be polite” 

However, because you are getting two links for the price of one, all we ask is that you leave a comment on both our blogs?  Afterall you wouldn’t go to a party and ignore the host now would you?

(We may choose to remove your link if you haven’t done this!)


If you like a pretty badge (who doesn’t?) then we would love you to use this one and spread the news.
