April was all about bluebells, beaches, reading and catching up with friends old and new. I had a terrific time at the Oxford Instameet and the Clifton Photo Walk and I also attended the Independent Oxford networking evening, where I met a whole host of local entrepreneurs. There’s so much great stuff happening in Oxford right now and the next Oxford Instameet is on Saturday 9 July if you’re free and fancy coming along.
I was thrilled to have my home featured on the Houzz blog and I’ve enjoyed welcoming a few new visitors to Candy Pop, hello! I’ve also been using Snapchat (username: candypop.uk) and I’m even building a mailing list, feel free to sign up!
I hope you had a beautiful month and May is cuter than a fluffy kitten. For my onward journey, I’ll see you over on Instagram. Have a gorgeous day.
