So, I’ve been a bit rubbish about writing on here recently. It’s been quite an exciting few weeks in work and life, but I’m still here!
As some of you might have seen on Twitter, my editor at Miramus Katie Lee and her husband Alex Milway became parents for the first time to the gorgeous Cecily on Monday. They even managed to tweet through much of the labour!
So I’ve been learning quite a few of the ropes this week and Alex has taken over editorial duties for ParentDish whilst Katie enjoys her babymoon. Keep an eye on the site as I’m sure they’ll be a post from the new dad soon!
Here are some of my recent scribblings.
- Lots of reviews and crafty bits for Dork Adore.
- Drooling over shoes at Shoewawa (and I finally bought these shoes on the right from Poetic Licence)
- Rounding up weird parenting stories and pretty dolls houses at ParentDish
- Style steals and stories for plus-size.me
I’ve also just had confirmation that I’ll be doing a couple of posts a week for OolaMoola, a site dedicated to getting the best for less. More to come on that soon!
Aside from writing, I’ve been trying to go to some networking events and tweetups. Last month I met up with Judy, who I interned for at Wahanda, and some lovely London based tweeters for some cocktails. Really strong Manhattan cocktails. A great bunch of talented people and it’s nice to get to meet some tweeters in real life.
I also helped organise the Freelancers Christmas Party this week with @1mgoldstars, @penny_golightly, and @SianySianysiany. The party was partly an opportunity to provide freelancers with a Christmas party (the downside of not working in an office) and partly to raise money for GOSH. Thank you to everyone that came along and donated!
I’ll be back blogging again soon about a Bling Bus Secret Santa!
