I have to admit... The main reason I'm writing this blog is to avoid my dissertation.
I had absolutely no intention of doing a masters degree once I'd finished my undergrad. However, Covid ruined all plans of travelling or potentially finding a 'proper' job (for the moment anyway), so my second dissertation deadline is imminent. Writing about Cotswold Fox is far more preferable, so here we are!
It's been over a week since the release of the Cirencester Quarter Zips. I was slightly apprehensive about the launch, as they are my first product where I worked closely with a wonderful supplier to bring my terribly drawn designs to life. I had absolutely no idea what you would all think, but selling out in under two hours was definitely not what I imagined! I spent the next 24 hours in my 'office' (the spare room), in a blur of boxes, packing tape and cups of tea (and G&Ts), getting over 70 orders packed and posted. I was completely blown away by your support and kind comments, a re-stock is coming very soon!
I'm also thrilled to be releasing a few new products this month, one of which are our new Tees, which are currently live on the website. If you're looking for a fun, comfortable, inexpensive t-shirt, these are the ones for you!
When I'm not (attempting) to write my diss, working on Cotswold Fox or doing my part time marketing job, you'll be able to find me on a horse.
It seems odd not to mention the horses in some capacity, as they are such a huge part of my life and have been for nearly 20 years. I currently ride two horses, the first being my wonderful seasoned eventer called Sammy, who my family have owned for 6 years and we've moved up the levels together.
My other horse is a youngster, who we bought last season as a lockdown project. The first time I clapped eyes on him was when he arrived at home in a horse transporter from Ireland, and he's just starting his eventing career.
Anyway, I digress! I've got so many ideas coming up for Cotswold Fox and I can't wait to see what you all think. Keep an eye out towards the end of the month for exciting new products and a big re-stock! If you sign up to our mailing list you'll be the first to hear.
I'm not normally full of clichés but I really couldn't be enjoying this little venture more and I can't thank you all enough for your support, what an incredible first few months!
