Being friends with other bloggers is totally awesome. I was reminded of this just yesterday when I had a lunch date with the gorgeous Emily of
Fashion Foie Gras, who I met at the Cosmopolitan Superbloggers Masterclass. It’s the same as when I hang out with Gala and Shauna (19 sleeps and counting!) because we don’t have to worry about feeling weird wanting to photograph our outfits or document our hang-out, talking through the benefits of twitter vs facebook or discussing the latest internet drama. To us this is all totally normal behaviour!
Being a blogger can be quite an isolating career path if you let it. If you work for yourself (especially if you’re at home on your own) I can’t encourage you enough to get yourself out there, make friends with your peers and all be weird together.
fabulous weekend guys.

Business Bites: Working Like a Machine…
July 5, 2013
My feet have not touched the ground since I got home on Wednesday night... I literally feel like an old machine cranking back up to full speed... I'll get there but it might take me a few days! I'm not going to lie though, I'm feeling quite overwhelmed and a little stressed out about everything I have on right now, but it's all good, I'm just taking each day hour at a time! Sheesh maybe I need to write a blog post titled 'How to get shit done in no time at all...'

Business Bites: Sweet Teeth & Party Time
August 2, 2013
Considering I don't have a sweet tooth at all, I sure do pin a lot of pretty sweet treats... hum, I wonder what that says about my psyche? I hope you've all had a brilliant and productive week. I'm really looking forward to this weekend because I'm going out - not once but twice! Sheesh, what a party animal. Now excuse me I better go and grab a quick disco nap before the chaos commences!
Business Bites: Bigger Goals and Geekery
September 13, 2013
Spending two weeks away from my beloved computer doesn't half make me desperate to crack on with work as soon as I get back. It's totally geeky I know, but that's just me! As soon as I'd gotten through all the emails (oh so many emails!) that had build up over the past fortnight I was straight onto plowing through my RSS feed to devour all those business articles that I'd missed.

As many of you probably already know, I've been over in my second home, New York City this week. Last weekend we taught a Blogcademy workshop to 30 incredible women in Brooklyn and yesterday we flew to Minneapolis to do this same again this weekend (if you'd like to come along we can totally squeeze you in by the way!)
