JULY... 'Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeeee' said The Colourful Edit!

I really just want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart <(Oscar speech to follow!)>... who has supported my colourful journey in every way. Hubby, Parents, Siblings.  From my family and friends holding my babies, offering coffee (wine), and listening to my questions... When I’ve had orders to get through, my helpers and makers rallying around me... to the quiet stylish ambassadors looking fabulous and spreading the neckwear love, my wonderful stockists embracing new trends, to my startup small (and growing like mushrooms) business clients for taking a chance on the un-norm, for all my personal clients holding their shoulders back whilst rocking their new wardrobes, to my bride and grooms with my captured art printed and hung on their living room walls... it’s been quite a journey! I blinking love my job! 

Last month saw my 100th online order via my website - it’s only been live a year, without any paid advertising, so really chuffed at that. London, Liverpool, Oz and NewYork (!)... All new customers! 

People often ask how I juggle work with raising three little full-time  (Col's the main bread winner, I like to add the pickle, salami and hot sauce). This year has been much more balanced with Colin working locally however. (Not entirely sure how we got through the two prior!). There’s so much going on in my head most days 😂 I do try and live life like a child (with my three beautiful little kids), and look at things with an open heart. I always follow ‘effectiveness through creativity’, something I picked up from my old agency. And I never watch the news (or the TV for that matter!). But basically, I have to be organised (yup - you were right mum), always kind, roll with the punches, say please and thank you, accept that I may not get much rest, understand that it’s me/house looking good, keep all my receipts (argh), and believe that I can go out and be proud of what I achieve.  

And to CELEBRATE our Birthday, I'm giving away THREE £50.00 gift vouchers which can be redeemed in a stockist, against a styling session, or against a 'capture' photo session.

To be in with the chance to win, you simply need to like (and share with friends if you see fit) my pages on social media, style yourself up in a Colourful Edit neckwear (clothes optional! (actually clothes are preferred!), take a PICTURE - a selfie or get a friend to snap you, then tag me* on facebook or instagram @thecolourfuledit #thecolourfuleditisthree and be in with a chance to WIN one of the vouchers :)  WINNERS ANNOUNCED 1ST AUGUST 2018.

Any questions, ask away! xx
