The What I See Project

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

That was the question I was asked by the What I See Project.

The What I See Project was set up by Edwina Dunn to give women a voice. It is a not-for-profit global project exploring female perception and self-expression.

I was honoured to be asked to be one of the hundred communicators adding their voices this month.

Here's me, pulling faces and bearing my soul in my video:





You can see my video (and all the others) on the site What I See Project.

Some of my friends are also taking part. Becky from Baby Budgeting and A Beautiful Space made me sob with her video. You must watch it. Also Penny from A Residence's (and Parent Shaped) video is excellent. I'm looking forward to catching up with them at the film screening on 1st October. I've loved watching the individual voices and can't wait to see them (and myself) on the big IMAX screen at the Science Museum.

You could also win a ticket to the Science Museum on 1st October by taking part on the What I See Project. full details are on the WISP website. Add your voice to the many.

I'm delighted to be able to the pass the baton onto Magda Knight at www.mookychick.co.uk who is in the spotlight tomorrow.

So, what do YOU see when you look in the mirror?

  5. I loved watching this, and I felt a bit emotional afterwards, because of your honesty - I'm not sure I could do that. That is an amazing project. You ARE pretty, and you have a truly infectious smile xx

    1. @Steph, I cried when I saw Becky's video. There's something unexpectedly powerful about seeing someone's usually private look in the mirror. Thank you x

  8. What a great idea! You look so lovely. I love the funny faces. I rarely ever look in the mirror these days and really don't feel like I recognise the person looking back.

    1. @Rebecca, thank you. You should try it. I'd recommend it. I wasn't looking forward to really looking at myself, but it actually didn't hurt :)

  9. You're beautiful Sandy and yes there is sadness there but it's the warmth most of all that comes across. I'm a smily gal too and I know we're not always smiling inside but most of the time, we're happy :-) Lovely video x

  10. I wish I could always be smiley - am so miserable lol. Really you are not 43 surely? You don't look it. And tbh you don't look fat either - you just look beautiful, and fun to be around.

    I am so sorry for your losses, but they are always in your heart. xx
