Those of you who followed my recent adventures while I was in Palm Springs might have had a sneaking suspicion that we weren’t just there to soak up the sunshine. Oh no, Gala, Shauna and I were working on a brand new Blogcademy project!
I canâ€™t tell you exactly what it is just yet, but believe me when I say we’ve listened to you and we hope it’ll be worth the wait! Our new offerings will be launching in the spring and weâ€™ll have much more to share real soonâ€¦I AM VERY EXCITED.
At the other end of the weather spectrum, I got back from my family ski holiday in Whistler on Sunday evening. It was FREEZING (one day it was -20 Â°C!!!) but itÂ was so lovely to get away, and for it not to be work-related for once! Â My whole family are complete ski nuts so everyone had a great time. It was so awesome to hang out with them all week.
I hope you’ve had a good couple of weeks too, whatever you’ve been up to. OK, onto dem treats!
