Autumn and Brand Rep Announcement

autumnblogpost2017

Autumn, meteorologic-ally speaking, is in full swing here in Bridport! The leaves are starting to turn, the days are getting shorter and cooler and with it come the flavours and smells one typically associates with the change of the season. Here at Walks in Beauty HQ (aka our little home) we are starting to enjoy it to the fullest! Autumn is my favourite time of year and on the paper side of things, many of my customers have been buying lots of autumn and Halloween papers! Making these makes my heart happy!

This revelation brings me to my next point, brand representatives/enthusiasts. For quite some time now I have been considering adding a few brand reps to our growing community of snail mail enthusiast customers. This is a first for me so I am very happy to announce that as of September 15th I will be accepting applications for brand reps of which I will choose three people to represent our brand. So, here is how it works:

I am looking for three brand reps/enthusiasts to represent us via social media and blogs for the next three months starting in October. The ideal candidates will have a blog that is kept up to date, a public Instagram account and public twitter account with a following of over 300, and a Facebook page is an added plus. Brand reps will receive a total of 3 free writing sets, 2 free writing papers, and any new sticker and journal card/ephemera sets that come out during the three month period they are representing us for. Reps will also receive a unique discount code for them to use to get up to 40% off of any product they buy within that three month period. Reps are required to purchase at least one item per month. In exchange for all of these goodies (and any extras which will no doubt be included), each brand rep is expected to write at least 1 blog post a month about Walks in Beauty Paperie‘s products and post one clear photo of our products each week during the three month duration which will start on October 1st and Conclude on December 31st. To apply for a post as a brand representative please e-mail us at walksinbeauty[at]outlook.com with the following:

  • Your name and location
  • Links to your blog, twitter and Instagram accounts
  • a short intro explaining why you would make an excellent brand rep and what you most like about our products.

Application deadline is Friday, 22nd September 2017. You may e-mail at anytime from now until then. I will start viewing applications from the 15th until the 22nd. Successful applicants will be notified on Sunday, 24th September and posted their first press package on Monday in order to allow time for their first posts in October. I look forward to choosing three fabulous people!  Here’s a sneak peak at some of the types of things that will be coming your way:

Cheers,
Nadia 🙂

Hello September, Hello Autumn: New Season, New Beginnings

squirrel in bournemouth autumn 2016

Hello my lovely followers and friends! Happy September! It has been an insanely long time since I last posted in here and I feel horrible about that but life was just too stressful for a while to cope with writing about it and also dealing with all the things that come along with that stress. Still, I missed writing in here and sharing with you all what has been happening and so I decided that September 1st was the perfect date to start writing again.

As many of you might know, I run an Etsy shop called Walks in Beauty Paperie and this has been consuming most of my time lately. I am loving it! Writing letters has always been a passion of mine so creating beautiful writing papers is a natural fit for me and as I am typing this post I am printing an order as well. I have a lot of exciting new things in store for my paperie and one of the things I am keen to do is get some brand representatives to join me in my love of all things paper. I will be putting up a post with the details later but just wanted to show you all a little bit more of what I do here.

Hello Autumn writing set from Walks in Beauty Paperie

If you are a regular follower of our Instagram account you will have seen the above in a post, as well as many other sets like it. I also produce ephemera sets, sticker flakes and lately have been making journal cards in 3″x 4″ & 4″ x 6″ format to fit Project Life albums for a unique touch.

I source the images I use from public domain sites, commercial clip art artists, and use my own photography and artwork as well as my husbands to create these gorgeous paper products. Our latest new product are the above gratitude quote journal cards which I thoroughly enjoyed making. They are very unique and right now in honour of Labor Day in the USA we have a 25% off sale going on across our entire shop, including our sale section which has many lovely items in it at present.

Our most popular items right now are our autumn and winter stationery which is flying out the door daily. I love these designs most of all as autumn and winter are my personal favourite seasons and in the next few weeks I hope to be adding some new designs and items to the shop for people to snap up devoted to this wonderful time of year and featuring more of my own artwork and photography.

Right now I am adding secret coupon codes in for every customer that shops from the end of last month (August orders that went out as recently as Wednesday of this week included) through to 25th September and all autumn and winter orders are receiving some lovely freebie journal cards some of which I will share a photo of below.

So, in short, this is where I am at regarding the shop at present. There will be more in the next few days, weeks and months as I look to expand our range of goodies. New products, new designs and a slightly new direction with an old twist.

Thank you for always keeping up with our blog, it means a lot, even when I have been a bit remiss in posting. I hope to now be back to blogging regularly and hoping to bring you lots more new content as well. I want to go back to also posting more of our lifestyle content and also share with you links to some of my favourite blogs around the web.

Here’s to a happy and exciting September!

Love,

Nadia xoxo
