First things first, Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year, extra special for those of you I know received a pair of our slippers from Santa himself (or maybe just a friend, but let’s not lose the magic just yet!). We had a great Christmas, followed by a trip down to Old Spitalfields at the start of January. If we’re honest, the shoppers weren’t out in force, but it’s still a great place to be and we picked up yet more fab tips from the old hands- always worthwhile. We’re back down again this coming weekend, so make sure you look out for us.
But I must momentarily digress, as shortly after this London run was the real holiday time- hellooooo mountains!
Oh yes, it was time to hit the slopes and yes, there was some serious powder. The cover story was a visit to my lovely cousin who is currently a seasonnaire for Go-Montgenevre, though I’m not convinced she’s requiring all that much moral support at the moment… Of course, I took my faithful FFYs along, and a friend her BMB slippers to pamper those post slope toes because goodness knows, we needed them!
But enough of our well earned break and back to the fact that it’s 2014 and we are ready to ROLL!
We are very excited about this year. No really! I know we make it look like we’re excited about everything and maybe we are, but 2014, yes! So far, if we’re honest, it’s been a pretty steep learning curve (say what!?!) and it isn’t going to get any easier, but we’re getting into the swing of things and really starting to understand what works but also what we need to work on. There is always scope for improvement, usually involving a mass creative block and ideas overflow to overcome, but it’s so fulfilling when you do sort through it all and get to the other side where you can see what you’ve achieved. So, as the title suggests, 2014 is about really getting our groove on and moving things forward.
This brings us nicely on to what we’re excited to present to you this year (more like a taster as too much would be overkill…). We’re really looking forward to presenting new ranges to you this year (yes chaps, that includes YOU!). All I can say is stay tuned. As you’ll have noticed, so far we have focused entirely on beating those winter blues. Don’t worry you winter warmer addicts, we will be continuing to develop our good work in this department. However, needless to say slippers and summer don’t always go hand in hand, though I do have to admit to wearing mine all year round and I’m not actually sure what I’d do without them, but I know I’m likely alone on that one… Hopefully this is a sunshine filled gap we can master and as always, we look forward to hearing what you have to say about the options we bring to the table!
And so now onto the slightly less riveting but ever important admin side of things here. We are in the process of booking our dates and venues for the year, so if there is somewhere you would love to see us and you think we might not have thought of, do give us a shout. We’re always looking for exciting new places to visit!
