We’ve had one of those weeks where no one seems to know where the first few days went! With travel and events stealing away some of the patterned team, it seems we blinked – and now it’s Friday! Not only did we kick off two fabulous new series that bring you wonderful tips, advice and eye-candy (check out the new Polka Dot Travel Lounge and A Glass of Bubbles with Chantelle from FatMumSlim), we also managed to nab ourselves a couple of fabulous interns, welcoming new faces Heather and Nicole! Welcome ladies!
