It’s the last day of 2012 & I’m sitting in front of my laptop, in front of the TV, one eye on each, trying to reflect on how this year has been, all while tuning in to the latest celebrity gossip on E! News.
I’d say pretty great! I’ve spent this last year chasing the dream – indulging in something that I’ve known I’ve wanted to do ever since I was pretty little.
This year we made the plunge into getting our own office. A nice , cozy (albeit incredibly messy) place to work into the nights at. This meant that our timing was less flexible since we didn’t have the liberty of simply walking down the stairs from the room and working from the dining table anymore. Discipline was also an issue – it is always so tempting to sleep in when you do not have to succumb to the threats of a HR department.
We’re still trying to work out the kinks of managing our working hours, but of course, there are always events which throw our so called ‘schedules’ into limbo.
Second highlight of the year was making the decision to rebrand our site – pretty ball-sy move considering that we were pretty comfortable with how things were running before. Love the new branding and site – don’t regret this move one bit, but there’s still a lot of work to be done, and stuff to be learnt.
Our plans for 2012? Definitely more variety and range at pocket friendly prices.
I’ll try a small preview in my next post, of our FLAUNT exclusives lined up for the Lunar New Year, so do check back if you have not done your shopping!
