I love Free people xxx

I wish I was 18, I love the brand!! If only this was a few months later…

Dani -July 24, 2013, 5:57PM

If only this was next year. Can you do this contest again after I get married? haha.

Louise -July 25, 2013, 7:09AM

Y’know, a lot of Americans I’ve met think Ireland IS Britain, so with that in mind, how about an Irish blogger?!! Free People is sold here through Urban Outfitters, and is very popular. Writing for Free People would be a dream come true, and I think I’d have a lot to offer readers and that my blogging style would be suited to the brand.

Georgina -July 25, 2013, 8:15AM
Dani -July 25, 2013, 11:30AM

Do you have to be an established blogger or do you have the same chance if you’re just starting out?

Charlotte -July 26, 2013, 6:21PM

I just entered! I am so excited for this competition!

My post is http://thelondonstoryteller.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/guest-blogger-competition-entry-for.html

Can’t wait to hear the winners!

After 4 years wandering the planet I’m returning to my native London next month…here is my post about my home city ^.^

I want to enter really badly, as I really love free people and blogging- however I am only 14! :/ anyone have any alternative suggestions, I’d really appreciate some good advice.

Sarah -July 28, 2013, 2:30PM

Hey guys! I just read the rules and I’m confused by 4 (i). I’d like to talk about the hot spots in my city but they’re all run by businesses – even the art gallery. I’ve skirted around it but I’d really like to cover it in more detail, with names and places. I’m also concerned that if my blog post breaches any of the rules you’ll just disqualify me!

Sorry to be so nitpicky, but I’ve put a lot of effort into my entry and don’t want to get disqualified.

I’d love to write for FP, it’s my dream job!

:)

fp jana -July 29, 2013, 9:42AM

Hi Sarah! It’s totally fine for you to name local businesses. If it’s a clothing brand, it may be best to leave out the name just because we are one also! :)

stylonylon -July 29, 2013, 10:35AM

For my entry, a mini guide to my local east London neighbourhood: http://stylonylon.com/2013/07/mini-guide-to-clapton-free-people-blogger-competition.html

Katie Jessica Poursain -July 29, 2013, 1:31PM

Hello!
I live in Birmingham, UK and one of the things I LOVE to do is visit National Trust places. You pay a yearly membership and you can visit as many NT places as you like. They usually include a big house with lots of history and huge grounds to explore. I think it it oozes British culture, one that you imagine to be the sweet English countryside including afternoon tea, picnics and fields of green!

It’s about exploring the out doors and possibly *cough* pretending to be a character from Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice! *sigh*

Here is my post:

http://katiejessicacreations.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/upton-house.html

Thank you!

Gabriella -July 31, 2013, 4:37PM

What’s up Free People!?
=) Here is my ‘short and sweet’ Blog entry:

http://www.gabriellatavini.co.uk …scroll down a bit and there it is!

It’s quite personal and intimate. I hope I don’t come across too pretentious – that seems to be the downfall of being an English Lit student… =/ It’s just I wanted my writing to be as inspiring as these places are to me.
Anyhow, cheers ma’ dears for having a gander over my stuff.
My fingers and toes are tightly crossed!

Holly -August 1, 2013, 6:23PM

Thank you!

Hello Free People!

I’m overjoyed that you’ve come to the UK and have absolutely loved showcasing my favourite, quintessentially British hangout for you… the Royal Town of Windsor! I’ve been a massive fan of your clothing for many years now and had a wonderful time popping into your Pop-Up Shop in Selfridges this week. My post combines my much loved local hotspot, with just a splash of Free People glamour!

I hope you enjoy: http://www.beleza-byems.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/walking-in-windsor-wonderland.html

Hi there – I’m really excited to enter the UK Blogger competition. I was just going over the rules, and it says that no mention of any brand or company etc. can be made, nor can you include any photos of friends etc. Is this right? My blog post includes both of these (it’s quite tricky not to) and I don’t want to be disqualified for those reasons!

They suggest the ATF can last the life of the assembly.
If you do feel a need to say something, the word “transgender” is correct.
