Hello Sunday. We’re back in business and I hope you’re all suitably cosy and are armed with a huge cup of coffee or perhaps a tea? Buckle up because this is going to be one long edition of Sundaze. (No idea why, I’m just feeling chatty.) This week I’ve luxuriated in doing whatever I fancy, from embarking on huge work projects to starting a long-overdue reread of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, I’m feeling rather selfish and loving it. In fact, I think it’s important to be a little selfish when we’re about to be catapulted headfirst into all things festive.
Alongside that, I’m feeling incredibly inspired by the brilliant Grow & Glow community that Vix has created. I’m so empowered to really take little Daisybutter to the next level and I’m genuinely brimming with ideas for new things around these parts. If you’re interested, Grow & Glow is a hub for creators and bloggers where they can learn new skills through monthly bundles, training and resources. Every month is themed and even as a blogger of 10 years and a professional creative of around 8, I’m learning new things all the time. Be sure to follow them on Instagram to hear when doors open for the next batch of enrolment.
An autumnal walk
With moving, packing, a busy work schedule and general life admin, I haven’t been able to spend as much time with friends and family as I’d have liked. Yesterday Harvey and I got up early and made brunch, before heading out with his niece, nephew and Marley the pup for a very autumnal walk to the park.
We sought out the best leaves to create a nature picture for the kids, stomped in puddles and ran through leaves, and we even came across an adorable ‘fairy’ toadstool! This season is easily the most magical of them all.
Finding my groove
In typical millennial style, I’m ‘go go go’ almost all of the time (but am constantly labelled lazy by the baby boomer generation), and this week I really feel like I’ve found my groove. I’ve lazed around after work — as we should all be able to — and I’ve also somehow squeezed in more work than ever before. Not only did I have two retainer clients plus a bonus writing client scheduled in, I was thrilled to spend time with my first ever mentoring client!
I’ve been toying with the idea of mentoring for a while now and with more and more requests to do so, I’ve started to formulate a plan. I have 10 years’ industry experience in writing across the fashion, beauty, lifestyle and events markets, and almost four in business ownership and can’t wait to share more of my knowledge with valued clients. Right now I’m not taking any mentoring clients but if you’d like to book me(!!) to mentor you with copywriting or business start-up, I’d love to hear from you, ready for next year.
Back to the Barre
IT’S HAPPENED GUYS. After 10 months away, I’m back to the Barre and I’m just delighted to be back to arabesque, pliés, and beyond. As soon as I’d negotiated a different working week for myself, I knew I wanted to immediately be back in the studio and I already feel 110% happier. The Barre studio is my happy place; next stop, the gym!
