SKILLS TO PAY THE BILLS.

This year I’ve really got my teeth into learning and developing my skills to be the best girl boss working from home I can possibly be. From digital photography, to styling and more modern calligraphy.
It's been a year learning from other ladies that have set up something of their own and working with them. I believe more than ever that it's about community with these amazing creative women and not about competition.

I'm a little late to the #girlboss movement, but I have ordered myself a little Christmas reading ‘Girl Boss’ by Sophia Amoruso. Girlboss is a hub of inspiration to share stories about what creating an amazing life really means. Being a Girlboss isn’t about being the boss of other people – it’s about being the boss of your own life.
If you’re a creative soul and looking for some motivation and invaluable advice I would head here. Kiki Sunshine has years of knowledge to help your little enterprise grow and her e-book is available for pre-order. Oh hello Santa…

You might have spotted on my Instagram and FB, I’ve had a pretty busy week and I know that lots of our brides will be interested to know more about the workshops I’ve been on to make their wedding day rock.

I headed back to London for another fab day with Quill London for round 2 of their modern calligraphy course, pushing on with flourishes and composition. I love writing, there’s something so relaxing about creating a beautiful design of words and for me I love getting to work on my chalkboards for all your wedding days. If you’re thinking of getting to grips with a calligraphy pen to do a little wedding stationery of your own this course is amazing. The incredible Lamplighter London have a book lout later in the year on the art of Modern calligraphy and I for one am stupidly excited about it’s release.

Then on Monday night I was over at Swaffham Florists learning how to make a Christmas wreath. I blooming loved it! The fab floral sisters are going to be running more workshops right here in Norfolk, from learning how to make a hand tied bouquet to table centre pieces and get this, flower crown parties. I’m mean O.M.G.

If you’re going to try your hand at some workshops in the new year to make you’re wedding even more personal I’d love to hear all about it…
