Business Brain...

This is a little tip for all you lovely people trying to run and online business....

Now I have been running the lovely Hummingbird Vintage for around six months and it is going rather well....we have branched out into undies and wedding dresses and all is fabulous even if I do say so myself.

One thing I found when I started was that I had no idea how to run an online business...and lets be honest...for a novice it is quite complicated.

I thought I had done everything correct..I had my Google Analytics, my Adwords and I was all set for an influx....sadly this wasn't to be and I spent alot of time staring at my 'stats' page willing the numbers to go up wearing a vintage dress (of course) and a sad face.

About three months ago I came across a lovely company who help little business's like mine get off the ground and do all the tech stuff for you...and then they send you lovely (they do mine in pink) presentations telling you what else you should be doing to increase sales....and....IT WORKED.

It has allowed me to not work as many hours in the real world and have time to do more vintage fabulousness....totally amazing.

If any of you need a helping hand let me know and I can put you in touch as their website is being re-done....!!

For those of you who are not interested in tech stuff then here is a gorgeous vintage gentleman for you to enjoy on this lovely sunny Friday....

...Rhett Butler...YUM!!

And I'm Back....

Since Friday I have done nothing except drink champagne, eat fine food, celebrate the engagement of the year and go to's a tough life but someone has to do it.

After yesterdays wedding I am feeling rather delicate due to alot of white wine and a considerable amount of dancing (one of my best friends ended up in A&E due to a fractured wrist caused by excessive dancing!!).

So today I have my grumpy face on and I am shouting alot at people who haven't done anything wrong....I am a naughty lady.

So to cheer myself up I have been doing some vintage hunting for the shop....yes....I will admit it has mainly been wedding dresses but I am allowed to do this now.

So ladies...if Wednesday is getting you down then feast your eyes on these beauties....

.....I may have to have either a very long wedding or lots of renewals so that I can were at least a few of these gorgeous dresses...!!!
