Celebrating 5 years of Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier appreciation

Happy Easter, and happy 5th birthday to vivandlarry.com! This little space of Vivien Leigh, Laurence Olivier and classic cinema appreciation officially went live on April 8, 2007, and it’s come a long, long way since then. I owe a huge thanks to all of you who visit and have interacted over the years, but I’d rather tell you face-to-face…

I’ve never posted a video of myself on youtube before but I guess there’s a first time for everything! Thanks again to all of you who have continuously returned to the site, and welcome to those of you who are just discovering it. I hope you all stick around for more fun things here at vivandlarry.com, and I’ll be posting some new photos over on the facebook page later today.

Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier by Laura Loveday
I’m very excited to unveil a new look for vivandlarry.com! The header, based on a photo by James Abbe Jr, was designed by the amazingly talented Miss Laura Loveday, a designer and illustrator living in Cornwall, using a combination of hand-drawn and photoshop. I’ve known Laura for many years through the blogosphere and our mutual love for classic films and creative design. The new look was created for the anniversary of this website, which is happening on April 7. I can’t think of a better way to commemorate 5 years online than with this beautiful illustration. Thanks, Laura!

Also, just to remind everyone, if you had previously subscribed to receive an email update whenever a new blog post is made, you will have to re-subscribe to continue getting this service. When the site was recovered a couple days ago, this data was lost. I’ve re-subscribed a few people already but can’t remember everyone’s email addresses.

A Blog Award! and Other Things

I feel like I have been neglecting this blog as of late, even though it has only been ten days since the last post. And I regret to say the next 3 weeks are going to be extremely busy with dissertation deadlines, moving house and job hunting so I won’t have time to update until after everything has calmed down a bit. In the mean time, here some things I’d like to mention:
Vivien Leigh in AnOther Magazine

This site was recently mentioned over at the style and culture hub AnOther Magazine where they wrote an interesting piece on Vivien Leigh’s love for Siamese cats.

I recently re-launched my old personal blog as a portfolio because I love photography and am seriously considering trying to freelance and/or set up my own business. I’d love it you popped over and had a look!
