Woodland breeze

Hello folks!

Having just shared about the wonders of being outdoors I just wanted to encourage those readers living in the UK especially In the midlands area that Bluebell walk in Shrawley Wood is well worth an afternoon visit!

It would also be lovely for students new to the area, Internationals and tourists visiting Worcestershire to experience as it is quintessentially British, and really the best of England outdoors!

The sounds of birds, lambs, and bees is just so other than what you normally hear, and the smells!!!

Oh the flowers smell glorious! It is most certainly soul food! Continue reading

Fresh Air and flowers

spring flowers England

I cannot gush enough about the beautiful sensation of being outdoors!
It is healthy, soul restoring and peaceful. This is why I am truly grateful that the flowers are blossoming and the weather is making an effort to be friendly once more.

When the weather is harsh there really isn’t that same kind and easy atmosphere, one has to fight the elements. I can’t say how much I dislike the cold.

There is so much involved and so many things one must remember to do with marketing, web optimisation, sourcing products and financing, committing time to making products as well as selling them.. well I could go on and the thing is there are many of us out there! Craft makers, entrepreneurs and you are just all so cleaver! So many ideas and so much backbone I thought I must have an area on this blog in which I can share with you my findings as I set up a business and perhaps it will help a few of you on your way too.

Cultural Treasures

It is not a secret to anyone who knows me that I love to experience different cultures and that I delight in discovering the beauty in differences. I have been on journeys to various continents and countries most of which it was a complete surprise I was able to go and all of which was a complete surprise of what I found. Each and every experience had an effect on me in different degrees, this effect I can only explain as an expanding of my heart.

The most recent of my cultural experiences came from a really unexpected direction. Continue reading
