I'm going to keep this quick because today has been crazy. I'm so behind on my to do list but I'm really in the mood to get stuff done and ticked off so I'm going to go for it. Yesterday I got a call from a friend who rang to say congratulations on one of our West Egg cushions being featured in the Sunday Times. Errrrr, what? Of course I immediately jumped in the car and headed straight to the newsagents to grab a copy.
Sure enough, there it was in the Style supplement.
After I came round I called Lucinda Nicol who exclusively designed the cushions for West Egg, she was also over the moon. They featured the Raspberry Toile cushion and you can see that cushion here along with the rest of the range.
We were so excited to see West Egg's name mentioned but it was especially meaningful for me personally because long before West Egg existed, I used to sit on the #137 bus to work in London and daydream about starting my own business and seeing my company's name in the Style supplement of the Sunday Times. I know, crazy right?! Now it has actually happened it feels really strange but also amazing.
This is a great reminder to me that if you put your mind to something you can achieve it. Of course it's not just going to happen overnight, it takes hard work and a lot of it. But, if you really want something and have a dream, you can achieve it. Anyone can.
