N E W B L O G P O S T // This week, we challenge you all as to whether you've done some strategic planning on how to capitalise on increased traffic to your site during this peak retail period - aka. getting your customers to add MORE to their cart! 🛒
We've given you some of our ideas of things that you can put in place - like, right now!
Don't miss this opportunity, it only comes around once a year and for online retailers - you really want to 'make hay while the sun shines'! ☀️
H A P P Y R E A D I N G !
Just a little more prep today for another workshop tomorrow. Where we'll get to brain dump all over some newbies to the Small Biz game!
Excited much? Seriously, we love getting out from behind the laptop and actually chatting to 'real live' clients face to face. It's just THE.BEST.!

As much as we self-criticise and hate our hair, arms, smile, chin (or chins 😩) - the list goes on......Investing in a professional photo shoot is definitely worth it all!
There are so many amazing photographers out there who will capture your 'vibe' and bring your brand story to life for you - using YOU! Everyone should definitely fit this into your budget - even just add a few on to any 'product' shoots you might be having 📸
Today, we put on our falsies 💁🏼♀️💁🏻♀️, washed our hair and had a little fun with the wonderful @moments_by_frankie! This is just a sneak peak - can't wait to see them all!
PS. Jax even managed to get away with the entire shoot not noticing that she had dried baby snot on her jeans!

I'm back in the studio after a full on and fabulous weekend at @finders_keepers - was overwhelmed by all the friendly Melbourne folk who stopped by to say hi! We meandered home with a divine couple of days spent exploring the area around Daylesford. I couldn't resist taking a few product shots at our cute little cottage @westcott_cottageaccommodation with all its nooks and lovely textures.
Thank you everyone for a monster flower-filled weekend at Finders Keepers and much love to my sister Row, @martanman and @tommidelicious for all your help this weekend! ♥️ we've updated our shop quantities, done a market recap on our blog (link in bio!) and have listed some new flower crowns online too 😘 shipping express within Australia daily during this busy spring season ✨💫 www.kisforkani.etsy.com!

I HEART YOU MELBOURNE
We had another magnificent weekend at our second home, Melbourne at @finders_keepers over the weekend. I might be a girl from the 'Go, but the city holds a special place in my heart, always.
The people, the creatives, the food, the architecture, the gardens and yes, even the weather- you all rock my world. As does hanging out with the cream of the crop, when it comes to designers and makers. .
Thank you to all of the gorgeous humans, young and old who popped by to play, you put a smile on my dial. And thank you @finders_keepers for having me- always a pleasure! .
To say we had the most fantastic time @finders_keepers over the weekend is a gross understatement! It was AMAZING!! A huge thanks to the FK Team for having us and to all of our supporters and great new friendships forged. You’ve made our time there unforgettable, and we hope your time at Finders Keepers Melbourne was just as superb! Have a beautiful week everyone!
