This month has been spent working hard prepping for SISTERHOOD, so home life has been pretty quiet. We have started (but not finished) several DIY home improvements. Dan knocked through the blocked up fireplace, as my parents gave us an old Edwardian fireplace from their home. Dan painted it, and we are just waiting for some time to grout the hearth and redecorate, before we reveal.
I ran a beautiful campaign on Instagram with my favourite footwear brand, Seven Boot Lane. Do hop over to check them out, such lovely shoes and boots to add to your christmas wish list.
SISTERHOOD was all kinds of amazing! I shall share all about it shortly. You can catch up on some of our adventures by checking out the @sisterhood_camp instagram feed, and the hashtag #sisterhoodwinter2016. Thank you to my amazing team, Hannah Bullivant and Erin Trezise-Wallace for their incrediable talent and hard work, I couldn’t do it without them. Also the team at Fforest, are all kinds of amazing! But more on that soon!
