I was very excited that I was invited to a bloggers event put on by the American magazine Ladies Home Journal. The conference was all about networking, inspiration and entrepreneurial blogging! I’ve been to a few food blogging conferences before but I ended up learning the most from the this conference. For the other bloggers out there (not just the foodies) I wanted to share a few of the ideas I took away from the day. The timing of the day was perfect. It’s a little overwhelming being back in America but I left feeling that I can do it and bring my blog along for the ride. I hope that sharing these tips will be helpful to someone else.

Julia Child Chocolate Almond Cake'

Better late than never! One month late I finally made my Julia Child inspired dessert. The cupcake book club will be back on track next week. I can’t wait to get back into the habit of reading again. Back in the UK I would get most of my reading in on my commute to work. I’m still too afraid to take my eye off the ball, or rather let my mind wander when it comes to the trains in America! After the great train debacle on my first day I’ve been consumed with getting on and off the right train everyday that I’m too stressed to read my kindle on the journey.

I thought setting two months for reading this months selection would be plenty of time! I have missed the deadline for my own book club. The perk of having your own book club means I can be late with my review of  My Life in France . For those youngens’ out there or those that live under a rock Julia wrote about her years in Paris and it was this move that set her career in motion. She brought French food to the masses with her books and television show The French Chef.

DIY Yarn Autumn Wreath

Autumn Yarn Wreath

I finally finished setting up my craft room this weekend! I’m really excited to start spending some time in there when it’s too cold to go outside. It’s got everything I need. A small bed/sofa, my computer and desk, a crafting table and a nice big window to let in light. I used the room yesterday as my new “photo studio”.
