Hello lovely ones,
Wow, what a week. I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted and could sleep for days!
I returned home from Pro-Blogger on Sunday and haven’t had a chance to process it all yet, because I went straight into a huge week work wise.
I haven’t really talked much about work here on the blog, I do tend to keep it separate but in this case work and blog land collided which was pretty cool. I work in Marketing on the Telstra Business Awards and Telstra Business Women’s Awards programs. Part of a team whose job it is to discover, award and celebrate the achievements of Australia’s best small to medium businesses and the countries most inspiring business women.
Nikki from Styling You was a national finalist in the National Biz awards Thursday night after winning her category at the state level back in July. So I got to meet her, which was fabulous and she was just so lovely. She also gave me a signed copy of her book which I can’t wait to start reading, if mum doesn’t steal it from me first.
Nikki had quite the cheer squad at the black tie gala – Beth from Baby Mac, Christina from Hair Romance and Mrs Woog. All my fave bloggers who started around the same time, and met online. All pioneers in blog land who so many of us look up to. I loved meeting Beth. I had met the gorgeous Christina previously when I did her Little Blog Big Workshop but unfortunately didn’t meet Mrs W. Maybe next time.
So that was the highlight of my huge week!

Apparently I’m running a 14.5km fun run tomorrow, but I’ve woken up with a scratchy throat so we’ll just see how we’re travelling as to whether I do it or not. If I do, the huz might be waiting a while for me at the finish line, my training as been err… non existent!
Anyway, enough of me… here’s some bits I’ve found around the traps this week I thought you may like…
