I’m not sure that il even be able to begin telling you how awesome The Great Christmas Market was. Overwhelming. Amazing. Beautifully creative in every way. And filled with the most inspiring humans ever. Everyone was so excited and positive!
I met so many creatives and fans of Clouds of Colour! It was honestly the best day ever.

Oh boy oh boy. Where to even begin.
This past weekend I attended The Blogcademy in Auckland and was not only exhausted with awesomeness but – more than ever – I am so overwhelmed with inspiration, passion and love for the blogging world.
Gala Darling, Kat & Shauna filled my brain with so much useful information, beautiful stories and glittery glam – that I am now ready to take hold of Clouds of Colour with both hands and work 10 million times harder than I have before.
Sitting in a room of sparkly bunny earred, creative woman was one of the best experiences of my life. I especially loved the fact that it was ok to Instagram and hashtag every moment from the weekend. I guess that what happens when you’re surrounded by bloggers!

If The Blogcademy happens to come to a city near you, I have two simple words … DO IT!
You’ll be mesmerised by their down to earth amazingness and come out with a notebook crammed full of ideas!xobec
