Firstly, how has it been almost two months since I wrote a blog?! We have welcomed an entire new season in that time... and a whole new issue of In The Country.
It has just flown by... in the midst of putting together the Winter issue and organising everything in preparation I just haven't managed to find the time, much to my dismay.
I guess this entry is a little welcome back to the blogging world for myself, I feel out of practice. There are lots of exciting things in the pipeline over the next few months and I have got to start somewhere.
Many of you have started to receive your copies of the magazine and I have to say I have just been utterly blown away by your comments - thank you so much. I love love love seeing all of your pictures with the magazine! Keep them coming!
I think these are two of my favourites so far! Thank you to @bethanyvere_equineart and @heytherefarmgirl for sharing these.
When I first decided to pursue the idea of an all new country lifestyle magazine, I had no idea it would grow as much as it has in such a short space of time. I regularly say how overwhelmed I am by it all.
I also want to say a massive thank you to all of you for helping me reach 8,000 followers on Instagram, it really is incredible and we wouldn't be doing this without you guys. The first of our exciting announcements will later today and I couldn't be more delighted. Watch this space for more information on this in the coming days.
I think this is perhaps my favourite image from our A/W photoshoot with Events Through A Lens and a perfectly sums up In The Country and what we are all about. Rosie is wearing the stunning Huntsman Red Beauchamp Blazer from Sporting Hares (get yours here). Use my unique discount code: HOLLIE17 or keep an eye out for a rather lovely looking Sporting Hares insert in your copy of In The Country to gain exclusive discount.
We have also launched our subscription service for 2018, which will start from our Spring 2018 issue and will run for the full year for just £24.99! This is available via the shop and will also be available to purchase and set up in person with us on our stand at The London International Horse Show at Olympia from the 12-18th December. Make sure you stop by stand H271 we have some fantastic offers and competitions in the pipeline! You won't be disappointed!
Here is a taster of what is to come in the coming weeks;
- In The Country: In The Making
- Ariat Eskdale H20 Boots FULL product review (as introduced in the Winter issue)
- Vario Plugs FULL product review (as introduced in the Winter issue)
- Olympia in the planning
For now, I am heading off out to go and buy all the bits I need to cook a cracking roast tonight whilst James is busy concreting stables and Bell is sunning herself in the Winter sun outside in the garden.
Until next time...
Lots of love,
