I know, I know! I’ve been MIA and I apologize to those that actually give a flying fig about Front Row Spectator. (must credit Vahni for the flying fig phrase, I heard it first from her.)
It’s pretty crazy what I signed myself up for this summer semester and I’m trying really hard to say “woooosa, woooooooosa” about the whole thing.
Anyway, I’ve decided to broaden my horizon a little and start incorporating some local fashion on my blog.
So from now on, I’ll be on the quest for thrifty vintage finds in the 305, along with fun and sassy boutiques that I think you all should visit. I also want to start searching for some local designers. I was presented with an idea by a friend and I couldn’t help but brainstorm about it and it really got me questioning what it is exactly I want to do with FRS.
There’s nothing I want more than to see emerging designers, entrepreneurs and artists get exposure. We all work so damn hard it’s time we get recognized for our craft. After all, success is pretty much 60% talent, 40% press. (I came up with this statistic with my own ideology, by the way.) Some might even say it’s 30-70.
Sure, a lot of it has to do with talent and dedication, heck, most of it does, but then there’s the other side of the spectrum, the side that I find is my niche–PR, press,publicity–call it what you want. I’m known for having pretty fine taste and I can see this fitting into FRS.
What do you think? Having loyal readers around the globe is great, but I need more local friends to join in on Front Row Spectator.
What better way then to start by presenting them with a little local look book on my blog? This also means I’ll be tackling full-force beauty stores, nightlife scenes, photographers FRS worthy, my favorite bake shops and more great local finds that will have the certified FRS approval. Oh, and if you haven’t figured out what FRS stands for, please refer to the name of this blog. (Hey, not everyone is a quick-thinker.)
I solemnly promise to only FRS-approve places and products I find appealing and interesting to myself and my readers, since it is to benefit and [help] both they and me.
Before I leave you all to drown my head in PR textbooks, here is a little video from this weekend, because you know we all love little videos!
