One Year On & Congratulations

Monday, 14 July 2014


Overdressed & Underprepared has hit the one year marker and it has been one hell of a year. This blog started out as a little hobby that I thought I'd enjoy and to add something different to what was once a reasonably poor CV. Now it is still a little hobby that I enjoy but I believe I have become a tad more employable. I will count that as a win.




The last year has been fantastic: I have met some fantastic people, worked with many exciting companies and been places I never thought I'd go. Being shortlisted for a couple of awards and awarded Highly Commended in the Company Style Blogger Awards have been obvious highlights, but nothing in comparison to what it feels like to have so many people (you guys) supporting the blog and myself.

The giveaway (as found here) was set up in order to thank you guys for supporting me throughout the year and putting me where I am, and it was a great success with a total of 1697 entries. It felt right to randomly select and announce the winner on the first birthday of O&U, so without further ado, the winner of all of that lovely stuff is: (as also shown on the Rafflecopter widget)

Congratulations and I am incredibly jealous!

I have to admit that I've been a little relaxed lately whilst the competition has been running and I apologise for that. Beth and I have recently moved and it has been a little hectic. Now that I'm back on form, with a little time on my hands and unlimited allowance on our internet, there will be more content on O&U for you to enjoy and some exciting things to come (including more giveaways and competitions).

Thank you for all of the support and congratulations to Jonathan Hicks (again).

Cheers guys,

O&U.
