So Tuesday was a rather exciting day! Thanks to John at Dad Blog UK‘s recommendation, I was invited to Sky TV to film an edited version of my post on the Imposter Syndrome for ‘Morning Stories’ a series on Sky News where academics, bloggers and media experts share their opinions on all manner of topics from politics to well-being and beyond.
The piece which I wrote and presented was shown twice on Wednesday am at 6.40 and 8.40 and also advertised too. You can watch it on Sky’s site HERE.
It was a real honour to share my thoughts on why women can so often feel like fakes, myself included. I hope it will encourage and inspire viewers to feel more confident about their kick-ass selves!
You can read my full blog post HERE I took the extract from.
It was a real privilege, and so much FUN (in caps) working with Cara the producer and the super crew, such a warm, friendly bunch who made me feel totally at ease.
So back to the beginning, on arrival at Sky, I was dashed into make up where my nose was powdered (a little more) because I turned up in full make up naturally(!) and my eye line flick was perfected before heading to the studio.
I did one read through and we were off filming 3 takes in different shot sizes for their edit.
I love the buzz of TV and pre-records are relaxing compared to live TV as you know any stumbles on words can just be re shot.
My work as a former TV director and filmmaker invariably helps me feel pretty fearless (for the most part) when shooting and I love how my career as a full time blogger connects me with my previous world, although I’m mostly in front of the camera these days!
The piece was broadcast on Sky News on Wednesday morning (24th February) twice and is now on Sky’s homepage.
After the filming was done, I had a quick tour of Sky and then popped over to the amazing L’ETO in Belgravia for a long, delicious lunch where I could make my deadlines in style.
Next door is the most romantic florists I’ve ever set my eyes on. #Flowergoals. Just divine.
Then it was off to an exciting style meeting at achingly cool The Belgraves Hotel with Rey from Reward Style (more on that to come).
One of those pinch yourself kind of days.
Do not miss the vlog of my day. It might just be my favourite vlogs of all time!
Hope you enjoyed the piece
Catch you next time
