We have been very busy on the Sweet Style website creating a new and exciting look which I am thrilled to be able to show off! I love a good make-over and I am really happy with stage one of our new face!
Last week saw the 3rd birthday of the Sweet Style website and online store. 3 fabulous years already! As you will have noticed things have changed a little this year and this was the perfect excuse to change up the website. With the direction headed more towards photography I have reduced down the online store to be smaller and more manageable and I will just stock my absolute favourite cake stands and bowls that I know you will love as they are of great quality and design. I will also stock a few of my favourite party products which are classic and perfect for any occasion.
Over the coming weeks, stage 2 of the new look will be here as I will also be giving the blog a new look! I have been blogging for just over 5 years and it sill such a huge passion for me. My blog has changed and evolved in the 5 years and now it is time for some more changes here as well – changes I am hoping a few of you will come on board with.
I am excited to announce that I am looking for bakers, crafters, graphic designers, collaborators, partners who are keen to be part of Sweet Style. I know there are many people out there who have wonderful talents that they want to share and they are looking for a platform to share it on – I am looking for simple but beautiful projects that relate to the food, entertaining, wedding or the party industry. I will photograph and produce the story for the blog with the ideas you have swimming around in your head!
I am approached all the time by readers asking how to get started – how to get their ideas out to the world. Readers who don’t have time or the desire to create their own blog to share their ideas. I am hoping I can help by giving you the platform you need. I know it is hard to come up with new things constantly and to be honest my philosophy for life these days is all about simplifying! I am looking for partners who want to be able to share a great idea once every month or two – something that doesn’t require the constant pressure of creating something new every day.
So first up bakers – I am looking for bakers who love to cook, have great recipes and they are keen to work with me to photograph and style their creations for sharing on the Sweet Style Blog – I am based in Sydney so obviously you sort of need to be local so you can get your goodies to me to photograph in my studio. If you are interstate and have something that can be posted easily then that will work as well but for the most part the closer you are to me the better.
Graphic Designers, Crafters and DIYers with great simple easy to create ideas for parties, weddings or general entertaining. Have you got some great ideas for a kids party activity or maybe a backdrop DIY – a lot of these projects are easy to pop in the post to me for photographing. I love seeing easy and fun projects so talk to me DIYers.
So now finally a special offer to celebrate the new site and the stores birthday! For this week only I am offering 20% off everything in the online store! All you need to do is enter the code HAPPY14 in the coupon box at checkout.
I look forward to hearing what you think about the new site and the layout! Special thanks to Nancy from Oranges and Lime who once again was wonderful to work with on the implementation of the site – if you are looking for help with your website or to get a website started them I could not recommend someone more highly.
