The first week of a New Year is always for many a bit of a let-down, often because the long drawn out climax of the Christmas period comes and goes with the blink of an eye, leaving us with massive credit cards bills looming to pay for it all. It makes me laugh every New Year to hear people saying they have a list of resolutions, like quitting smoking or giving up booze because unless you implemented these new regimes on December the 31st, you immediately fail to start the New Year in the way you mean to go forward. Let’s face it having a mammoth hangover on New Year’s day unable to get off the couch in case you throw up, is not really the great start to a “New Year, New You” is it?
I went to bed a 9pm on the 31st because I wanted to wake up fresh and get ready to take my business to a new level, selling to women all over the world takes some focus but being excited with a purpose is what sets up the best from the rest. I began the first day of 2015 visiting the mill where my fabulous material is knitted because like me the people I choose to work with never really rest, (when you work at what you love, you never work again) and I was so happy to discover the new batch of cotton was to die for and I was very happy to hear the dying and finishing process for my fabric was being done using less toxic chemicals than ever before.
My goal has always been to build a British brand that takes us back to the principles and good practise of a time gone by.
