A new start.

I've had a very strange busy week (due to my day job being particularly tough the last few days) and we are at Thursday and I have a weekend away seeing my boy so i thought whilst I had a spare few minutes I would share with you a little something I have been working on. I recently came to realise that people come to my blog to read my lifestyle posts and probably not too much for the business side of my life so I set up RubyRaeLove Blog for all things Boho and jewellery related. Its a simple layout so people can navigate it easily and get to know the ins and outs of running a little business, sneak peeks and what we have been up to. I would love it if you could take the time to venture over there at the moment I only have one post at the moment, introducing myself, its very odd to start again from scratch but I am excited to get my teeth into my little jewellery shop and blog again.

A lot of new readers will be wondering where the shop has come from and why so out of the blue, I got a little dis-heartened a while back a few months ago and i got stuck in a rut with RubyRaeLove I went through a process as a business where others were undercutting their prices and hand-making everything was getting harder to make the money, my soul kind of lost its way for a while. So I took a break, I never take a break from anything, I never give up on anything so it went into hibernation for a while and I finally feel excited about the pieces I am making again. We have a few Magazine Interviews coming up...super exciting!!

So I really hope you can join us on our little blogging journey we have a freebie weekend coming up so keep your eyes peeled!

  4. Glad to see you are back again. I think lovely and unique hand made jewellery is always so much better than the mass produced stuff. Checking out your blog now, also really interested in the posts about running a small business.

  5. Soooo we have the same theme on our blogs... but it's a good theme! Plus different backgrounds hehe. Good luck with RRL :) xo
