Earlier this year I had the amazing honor of interviewing @therealdvf and it was such a privilege to speak to such a powerful and inspiring woman. My favorite quote of the day โ€œI didnโ€™t know what I wanted to do. But the only thing I knew is that I wanted to be in charge of my life. I wanted to be a woman who did not need anyone, who could pay for her bills. That woman who wasnโ€™t waiting for the Prince Charming. I did not know what I wanted, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be.โ€ You can read more from the interview @womenatforbes #dvf #dianevonfurstenberg #houseofdvf #powerfulwomen #womenwhorule #thefirsts #queen ๐ŸŒŸ#womenatwork #womenempowerment #unitedwomen #boldforchange #genderequality #womenatwork #advancewomen #5050BY2030 #feminist #equalityatwork #diveristyandinclusion #D&I #workthatworks #worklifebalance #balancetheequation #womenleaders #glassceiling #futureofwork #womeninbusiness #workthatworks #makinginnovationworkforwomen

I pledge to #ShopSmall this Christmas. As a small creative business I know just how important every single sale is and the impact it has on myself and my family. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my customers! You'll find my stall, Karin Andrรฉasson Jewellery every Saturday on Broadway Market, Hackney. The market is vibrant with plenty of individual gift ideas AND we'll be setting up stalls for an extra day this year on Sunday 17th December. Shop locally and spread some Christmas magic.โ €
A big shout out to @hollyandcoworkshop for kick starting this campaign and highlighting the importance of supporting small businesses โ €

Thank you for the most wonderful support in #campaignshopsmall...It's so good to know we all feel so passionately about the same subject! โ €
You'll see so many pieces of amazing artwork, created by such talented small business including @stormyknightuk who created this beautiful illustration. It looks like we have so much more, winging their way to our campaign HQ! Thank you. โ €
But, we are but one shop, one dot on the map. The way we all spread this message, is getting out there within our virtual worlds. Our virtual high streets, living rooms and kitchens. The power of social media. โ €
The hand has long been now, a symbol of Holly & Co. Due to the love of the fact, all small businesses have the most powerful tool ever invented, their hands, that they use so skillfully to build, create and make. They build their dreams. โ €
And when you think about it, the use of our hands is a powerful one. A symbol of how much something means to us. From joining a nationality to worshipping our gods. โ €
I ask you to hold up your virtual hand, in this mission to support your fellow small business, the business being dreamt up by your friend or loved one. I ask you to pledge your commitment to this movement of people, who need your support now, more than ever. โ €
Today I ask you to like, regram this post and spread the message far and wide. Asking others to do the same, not forgetting #campaignshopsmallโ €
โ €
I pledge to shop small. How about you? โ €

**NEW POST ON THE BLOG - link in profile** After months of not being able to write anything at all it is a huge relief to be able to share why I am leaving my job in the NHS, why as a mum to a disabled child my job mattered so much to me and what happened when I couldnโ€™t let go. On to happier times... #sendbloggers #workthatworks #burnout #mentalhealth #workingparent #workingmum

When I set up Virtually Savvy I was thinking Iโ€™d be lucky if I got a few hours work a week and I was confident I could fill the other childfree hours being a domestic goddess and lady that lunches. That part never really happened. Iโ€™m busier than ever and in doing so it has totally made me appreciate a Friday. Probably more than ever as the last time I was this busy work wise was pre kids 7 years ago so life was very different. Anyway pass me the wine! Cheers to Fridays and #freelancelife ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿท

Yesterday I went and met the wonderful people at The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum. I asked their Press Officer, Alison, to answer three questions:
.
1) What does The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum do on a day to day basis for the community?
.
2) Why are the people who work there passionate about this?
.
3) Who would they nominate to be their #wirralwonder?
.
She was so helpful and full of information. So today I've been working hard collating everything for a blog post. I've also added all of their events to my website. Take a look at my events page to see if there's anything you fancy attending (see link in bio)
.
When I'm working hard I do like to treat myself. Today's treat was a Welsh Oatie Cake from Gerrards Bakery on Pensby Road. They used to be a childhood treat too.
.
Right back to it so I can get you a blog post so you can see Alison's answers.

What is it about looking at holiday snaps that makes you want to run off to the nearest mojito serving beach bar, run by scantily-clad-six-pack-adorned-bronze-tanned Gods?? What I actually meant was run off to a family resort with ample animation, a life time supply of chicken nuggets and a spare suitcase to carry home all the tat! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Yes. I feel a trip coming on! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #familytravel #holiday #nomoremojitos

Flexible working and a decent work-life balance. Itโ€™s the dream but is it really possible? Iโ€™m so excited to share a brand new guest post on the blog written by the lovely @andrea.cutts from @oscarcharlieuk all about taking the plunge and retraining to find a better work-life balance (link in bio)

Andrea shares her story of training with @digitalmums and starting her own business. It hasnโ€™t been an easy journey but sheโ€™s doing what she loves and is right where she wants to be. Amen to that!

How is your work-life balance? Do you feel like youโ€™ve got it about right, or not at all? ๐Ÿค”

Warm vibe, lots of space, pretty glasses and a bit of The Who and Billy Bragg at @thelastcrumblondon... I may make this a regular thing...

Mother of All Meet Ups Number 5. Itโ€™s pretty hard to make out much here, apart from our huge of grins. Thatโ€™s what comes from hanging out with a bunch of women who totally get it. In our case we are all trying to juggle being advertising creatives and Mothers. We are the minority in our industry but thereโ€™s such strength in knowing weโ€™ve got each other. ** Shout-out to @unionstcafe for hosting us tonight.** ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ

I had such a lovely morning at the top of #streathamcommon getting new ๐Ÿ“ธ photos ๐Ÿ“ธ done with the amazing @tayloredphotographylondon!

I read this somewhere in the @teamfizzle blog and loved it!

I often have to remind myself to stop over analysing when I get an idea. I was a business analyst in my former life, so it just comes naturally to me to over think!
.
.
Where I learn the most is always when I'm out talking to people or taking action.

What are you today? Over-analyser or action taker?!

Ferne and I have been hanging out at the stunning @delawarr pavillion this morning (see more in my stories โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿป) And what a beautiful day for our first visit. They have got so much on - Playback touring film exhibition plus a huge model and activities based around Hastings Pier (did I mention it won the Stirling Prize?!)

Busy, yet very productive morning!! First stop @stradainsta for the Henley Business Partnership #3FM meeting. ๐Ÿ‘Š First one Iโ€™ve been to in a while (yep, I was a little nervous)! Iโ€™m so pleased I went, it was great to chat to some of the local businesses in the area. ๐Ÿ˜€
Next stop Superdrug Henley the grand opening!! To be honest I wasnโ€™t there for the shampoo....I was just after @thegourmetgob cakes!! I had to ask, they were hiding them behind the counter!
Delicious as usual!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’•
