When I was on tour at the beginning of February, I was lucky enough to be able to call in to see one of the fab & feisty winners of MBFR 2008, Laura… it was brilliant to finally catch up, as Laura was such an inspiring winner yet was ill at the time of the 2008 finals, so only her nominated friend Kelly was able to make it along to the Ultimate Friendship Festival….

Meeting Laura at last was brilliant, and I knew right away she was a VERY deserving winner! Cool, kind, courageous and caring… those were the qualities that made Laura stand out, even while fighting a very serious illness, and which made her such a fantastic winner in 2008. I loved meeting Laura and her fab family (and her collection of crazy pets!) and I can definitely say for sure that Laura Taylor ROCKS!!!!

So… do you have a fab best friend? You STILL have time to enter the 2009 MBFR comp… just click the My Best Friend Rocks link on the website for all the details on how to enter. The comp closes on April 1st, so hurry… and get those arty entries in NOW!!! The finalists will be invited down to London on July 4th, National Best Friends Day, for a cool Awards Ceremony… and the overall winners will win amazing prizes to help them run the sleepover party of their dreams!

If you’ve already entered, or if you have more than one best friend… or if you live outside the UK & Ireland… you can still send a shout-out to YOUR best friend(s) and tell them how much they mean to you. Just send your shout-out through the comments box at the bottom of this blog. What are you waiting for?



  1. you have never seen anything so small and so capable one you’ve seen hannah. Hannah is verry small and her birthday is 2 days after mine! she is sooo talented. she can balance 2 baloons on each hand while balancing 1 baloon on her tongue. Hannahs the type of person that doesnt care what people think and never gives up. Well, as people say good things come in small packages!!
