I HAZ MERCHT…

One of the most frustrating things as a creative person is having an idea which you don’t have the time/energy/money to see through to the end. For me personally, it’s always a massive de-motivator which has frequently stopped me from starting projects in the first place, which is of course, puts you back at that cycle of wanting to do something but not quite getting there. So, to help me get over that barrier, I’m pleased to announce my first Mercht campaign, which is live for the next 8 days only, you can find it here.hamburger-steven-by-jayne-kitsch-on-mercht-3

Setting challenges and making changes…

The idea of committing to doing something positive to myself to develop some ideas I have every day and sticking to it, all started when I moved to Spain four (five?! WTF?) months ago. I was supplementing the language lessons I started using the app, Duolingo which rewards you for sticking to a routine, it quickly got me committed to learning, which made me think there was more to this daily challenge thing. Before this I’d been kinda anti-routine and used to get frustrated and bored by doing the same things all the time, recently I’ve started to see the value of a routine and what it can do to positively influence you and the people around you.

Learning Languages…

How many languages do you speak? And I don’t mean, which languages did the UK school system make you learn for a couple of hours here and there when you were in High School. I’m talking fluent or enough to get by living in another country. As a Brit, it’s pretty much always just English and if you were keen you might have enough French, German or Spanish to get by on holiday but not much else. For me I know a bit of French, but really only my English is something to shout about.

What I’ve learnt about Spain in the first week of living here….

So it’s been a week of living in Barcelona now, it’s gone so fast and we’ve achieved so much already. It’s been a minimum of 20 degrees everyday, only rained for about 10 minutes and we’ve eaten a lot of amazing and cheap food. We’ve also been to IKEA about 5 times, assembled ALOT of flat pack furniture, eaten a lot of IKEA meatballs and tried Spanish Domino’s. We’ve yet to go to the beach, even though my Dad asks me everyday if we have or not. It’s on the to do list. Anyway, thought it would be fun/interesting to have a little ramble about some of the (possibly) useful things that I’ve learnt about Spain so far.

WIN a Hamper from Patisserie de Bain by Rose & Co

A long, long time ago in a city far, far away in Central Yorkshire, I lived and worked part time at a lovely vintage inspired apothecary and boutique called Rose & Co. We sold various gorgeous things from brands like Paul & Joe, What Katie Did and our own brand which at the time was largely cooked at home on an old fashioned oven by founder Caroline Rose. My time at Rose & Co taught me about pin-up and burlesque, how to fit corsets and how to do Victory Rolls. I didn’t work there for long but its influence has stayed with me to this day. So, I’m very pleased to be able to share with you a little competition to win a slice of the company for yourself. I’m running this out of sheer, genuine love for this brand and its owners.
