Hey Gorgeous, The Blog


Dec 10

The Countdown is On!

It’s Sunday night as I type this and the streams of Engage tweets are flowing through my Twitter feed. I made the decision to rebrand my business this year in lieu of attending Engage and I’m so glad I did. This rebrand has been good for my soul. It’s been exhausting, frustrating, eye-opening and surprising. But it’s also been incredibly fulfilling and exactly what I needed. ‘An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is pulling you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.’ I pinned this quote a while ago and absolutely love the analogy behind it. For me, 2012 in all of its entirety felt like one giant lesson or personal metamorphosis and I couldn’t be more grateful for the ups and the downs that have allowed me to be so present in this moment. The bottom line is I’m just so excited to show you everything I’ve been pouring my heart into, guys. So in the meantime, while the coders are coding, and I get last little details in place for Monday’s relaunch party I wanted to leave you with a big old thank you. It’s not much but it’s really all I can possibly say to those of you who have given me a part of your heart. This blog has consistently been a source of unwavering support and love for close to four years now. I can’t wait to share the new and improved HGE with you soon!

Eight more sleeps until it’s all unveiled! Until then get ready for the giveaway of all giveaways including gorgeous gifts from: Plum Pretty Sugar, Palomas Nest, Vatne Designs, Anastasia Marie, Oatmeal Lace Design, Emily Ley, Lemon and Lavender, The Way We Are, Big Yellow Dog Designs and so many more! And all of the gorgeous gifts will be going into that pretty new tote bag displaying my new logo, photographed above by the sweet Kelly Braman. Can I enter to win my own giveaway? This is going to make one reader so truly happy. Enjoy your week, blogettes and next time we chat I’ll have a new look! xoxo

    Hi Rhi – it’s funny, I have you mind a lot with this rebrand. I find myself thinking (when I work with my designer) about your beautiful hand-written font for your logo and the bird and the colours and how it all represents you so well. I feel like it has been a little education watching you from afar via the blog and twitter. A rebrand can be a big thing or a little thing – and for you it’s a big thing and I for one, can not wait! It is all such hard work, which of course you have thrown yourself into 100%! You wouldn’t be Rhi if you didn’t. So I am so pleased for you and it will be fabulous, I just know it. Lou x

The amazing thing is that the excitement isn’t just lasting for one day, on relaunch day–it’s a common thread that will be woven through the rest of HGE’s future! Words can’t describe the expectation & delight I have for you as the final days wind down. Hip hip hooray!!
