Hello... and welcome back!



Has it really been a month? How time flies when you're having fun, and busy with a stack of new and exciting projects.

Well, first of all, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who wrote in with comments and feedback about the site. I've taken them all on board and done a bit of window dressing to Daily Imprint - love to know what you think. There are a few more goodies I want to add but they'll have to wait a week or so as I'm styling my second ever shoot this week. Yes, the first shoot has made it to the pages of Real Living's March issue, which goes on sale soon - so keep an eye out. Needless to say it's been a busy month away from the blog.

Talking of which - I have to give an even bigger THANK YOU - YOU SAVED MY LIFE to Dani Rosen from The Style Tree, Dan300 and Bluebird & Honey - yes, she's a busy girl. Dani came to my rescue and helped me design my new logo, the site, pretty much everything. And it was all completely unexpected. She contacted me about an interview - which you can read on The Style Tree here - we got chatting at midnight, as you do online, and voila Daily Imprint is transformed! I also have to say a huge thanks to my brother and his tech magic.

I won't say too much more now other than there are MANY exciting interviews coming up on Daily Imprint this year. Previously I mainly interviewed inspiring individuals who I encountered via Real Living. But I decided to write a wish list of other people who I'd like to feature and the great news is that almost everyone has come back and responded with a resounding yes.

Now, drum roll... here are the prize winners' names for leaving comments (some contacted me directly via email). Nicole; Bec Hem; Angela; Julie; Luciana. I will contact you shortly to get your addresses so I can post your prizes!!!

So, enough talk. Tomorrow is back to inspiring interviews. Hope you can join me.

Welcome back, Natalie! ooh.. is that me, did I win a prize? I love The Style Tree, I hadn't heard of it before so thank you. Dani did a great job with your blog, she has a great eye. I remember her blue vintage stool and lovely vases from a RL issue awhile back.

love it love it love it!! the header is awesome, as are the sections.

I also just love that image. I was super jealous of the couch, until I spent the weekend with my great grandfather (who is 95 mind you) and noticed THE MOST AMAZING couch in is living room, not too different from yours. it is well and truly original and in perfect condition. just some new covers and I will have my dream couch. wait, sorry. It is his couch. I shouldn't be stealing his couch....

Oh thank you everyone. So lovely to read lovely supportive comments this evening when every bone in my body is aching - just styled two "best of the best" features for Real Living.

And yes the praise for Dani is well-deserved.
