This summer, I was really pleased to be asked to be involved in the What I See Project. The project aims to celebrate inspiring women from every day life whose stories would otherwise go unacknowledged. They do this by asking the simple question ‘What do you see when you look in the mirror?’ There are women from all walks of life involved in this project and the range of answers to the question is pretty fascinating.
I’m proud of what I see in the mirror these days. That wasn’t always the case, but thankfully it is now.
Check me out over on the What I See Project site and explore some of the stories of the other awesome women on there.
Next up to share her story will be Hannah Chutzpah. Check out her blog here.
And you can contribute your own answer to the ‘what I see’ question over on the site. Get on over there and make your voice heard.

So, Nissan approached me a few weeks and offered to give me their new Nissan LEAF, an electric car, to test drive for a couple of weeks as part of their Big Turn On Challenge. (I know, I know, this is my life, I understand it’s a little crazy). I know what you’re thinking, ‘But Bangs! You don’t drive!’ That was my reaction exactly, my friends. But knowing that my other half does and being quite adamant in my own attempts to save the planet through recycling, conserving energy and what have you, I was really interested in trying out an electric car.

The fabulous Cate Sevilla, founder of the awesome website Bitch Buzz, recently expanded her awesomeness exponentially with the creation of PopHive, an internet TV show all about pop culture. She recently asked if she could interview me and I’m never one to turn down til avec La Sevilla. We had a great ol’ chat about blogging and running and a quick fire round of questions for which I gave some rather embarrassing answers (well, my love of Phil Collins may be embarrassing to you, but I’m fine with it).
It just stands to reason of course that we filmed this on what must have been my worst skin day in a very long time, so apologies that you have to look at my rather distressed looking face, but hopefully you’re too busy being distracted by my mind blowing intelligence that you barely even notice.
