So this week I spent a lot of time in Leeds at the Entrepreneurial Spark Hatchery, where I took part in a two day Boot Camp!
The Boot Camp was absolutely fantastic and has left me practically exploding with ideas for my businesses, I'm hoping to share a lot of my Entrepreneurial Spark journey with you guys, so keep tuned for updates!
I also went on a very last minute trip this weekend to Carlton Towers with the Clandestine Cake Club. The outing basically involved eating lots of fantastic cake in a beautiful country house setting, so what's not to love there!
As I only had about 12 hours notice to make and bake my cake for the event, I ended up making a Scandinavian inspired coffee cake, using up things I already had in the cupboard!
Whilst it wasn't the most beautiful creation, it did go down pretty well! I'm actually going to take this recipe and develop it further for Vincent's Coffee, as the dried fruit worked really well with our Pasqua blend, which is very fruity itself.
I hope you enjoy my second ever Vlog and please do let me know your thoughts!
honest, I've been putting off writing it as I know it's going to ruffle a few feathers and generally provoke a difficult analysis of our industry.
The blogosphere I refer to in this deconstruction is a mostly female space. (There are many expressions of gender on the internet obviously, but the industry I experience is predominantly created by people who identify as women).
Again this is a Sunday Summation covering the past two weeks, as I must admit this whole series slightly slipped my mind last weekend... oops.
As you may be aware, back in June Des and I took part in The Clearing Project - a post-apocalyptic vision of the future set in the grounds of Compton Verney, a Stately home turned Art Gallery in rural Warwickshire.
