I thought it might be great time to get back into my blogs as its been soooo long.
Outback Aromas has been seen helping out and spreading the love of our candles & gifts everywhere.
– Low Carbon Quiz Night with the Greens in Perth – Our candles were a real hit.
– New Norcia – Soap and hand cream classes. We had a wonderful group pf ladies that brought with them light , laughter and fun. Thank you.
– We have been to a cocktail party her in Merredin and helped raise funds for Telethon.
– Travelled to Kondinin to help out the lovely ladies to raise funds for their hospital. While we were, I caught up with Mary Nenke (Cabinata Yabbies) and Caroline Robinson (Rural Woman of the year, Wheatbelt Business Network and Ballet Teacher) We talked about the vitalness of networking for Rural people and using the social networks to generate more interested in our businesses and lives.
– Friday I was off to have lunch with many inspiring business people of the Angel Networking Australia group. The networking buzz was so alive and many new ideas and business partnerships were forming.
That afternoon I had a few photos taken with our products for the cruelty-free festival, with the handsome Justin. I learnt a few recipes off him too, mmmmmm.
Langley Park was calling me on Saturday morning with thunder and lightning with some rain. Not to be deterred. I was there to help set up and welcome a very inspiring, caring couple of men, who had walked from Carnarvon to Perth.
I was lucky enough to be able to be part of the last part of their journey, and meet their family and learn more about their son Nathan. A sausage sizzle was the order of the day after their long walk. Being able to help and being part of this last part of the walk and Lifeline was a wonderful experience.
. Next off to a cake fund raising event, we arrived just in time to taste the cakes and give a donation for Red cross.
– We would also like to wish Matt & Tiff all the best for their wedding and by spreading the love of our candles too. Thank you.
– Throw in a bit of training for year 12 exams on the return trip and that is my past week.
Till next time when we share with you what we have been doing, take care.
