Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and now feel relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on 2018.
After a two-week break from my laptop, I’m back in the swing of things and brimming with ideas for how to take These Four Walls forward over the next 12 months and beyond. I first created this little corner of the internet back in July 2014, and I could never have imagined that three and a half years later I’d have left my day job to focus full-time on blogging and other freelance projects. It really is a dream come true, and although the last few months have been a steep learning curve, I’m loving every second.
I now have a lot more time to create inspiring, useful content and I have some exciting plans lined up, including a little brand revamp and some new regular columns – always with a focus on minimalist design and simple living, of course. I’m also launching a monthly newsletter with more interiors, travel and lifestyle inspiration straight to your inbox, so do sign up in the sidebar if you’d like to receive a copy.
To help me create the kind of posts you really want to read, I’d love to know what you think of These Four Walls – what you like and don’t like, what you’d prefer to see more or less of, and any other feedback you might have. I’ve therefore put together a short reader survey and I’d be so grateful if you could take a couple of minutes to respond. There aren’t many questions (I promise!), and as a thank-you for your time I’ve teamed up with Hobo Soy Candles to give away a fantastic scented candle to one lucky respondent.
I’ve been following Hobo Soy Candles since it was first founded by Rachael Clark in 2013, and over the years I’ve watched this wonderful independent brand go from strength to strength. All the candles are handmade from eco-friendly soy wax and essential oils, and the enticing travel-inspired fragrances include the likes of ‘Citrus + Basil’, ‘Oakwood + Tobacco’ and ‘Fig + Cassis’. They’re beautifully packaged in reusable glass jars, and there’s also a range of matching reed diffusers and handy take-anywhere travel tins.
To be in with a chance of winning a large candle in the scent of your choice, just leave your email address in the box at the end of the survey (it won’t be passed on to any third parties or used to subscribe you to any mailing list). The giveaway is open until midnight GMT on 31st January 2018, and the winner will be picked at random and notified shortly afterwards.
Thank you, and good luck!
