Summer 2010. The best summer to date. Friendships grew, I met new people, saw new places, drink copious amounts of alcohol in beer gardens, back gardens, balconies and bars. Late night trips to the beach & not rolling up to the door step till the sun came up. Sunglasses on, music loud & windows down. Totally and utterly amazing. So I'm optimistic, now that the sun has arrived again, that this summer is going to follow in 2010's footsteps. I want this year to beat it, I want to not have a care in the world & enjoy summer just like the last.
Wondering why I've posted pictures of me looking like a scruff & giving you spiel about summer? I've been asked to collaborate with Paul Smith & the launch of his new fragrance Optimistic & these pictures of amazing memories are what makes me optimistic about this summer to come. The Paul Smith campaign is huge & very exciting so I nabbed the opportunity. The competition is being run through facebook & asks you to share & upload your most upbeat & optimistic photograph for a chance to win some amazing prizes. The 50 most liked photographs will win invites for themselves & a friend to attend the Paul Smith Optimistic summer party featuring a line-up of leading UK artists, & as if that prize isn't good enough the top three most liked photographs on the facebook app will win £500 to spend at Paul Smith. The competition doesn't stop there either, every 'Optimistic Monday' there's a new weekly prize to win, there's already been tickets to Bestival & the chance to meet Paul Smith himself. So like the Paul Smith Optimistic page, if not only to browse & be inspired by this greatly upbeat campaign but to upload your own pictures & have a chance to win some amazing prizes.
I'll keep you up to date either through my blog or twitter on up-to-date & exciting information on this. Also keep reading for a chance to win the fragrance its self on my blog.
So, what are you optimistic about?
