I almost hate to say it — because I don’t want to rub it in while the rest of the country is suffering with such bad weather — but I’ve had an absolutely incredible week with Shauna and Kat in Palm Springs. It all flew by too quickly, of course. Today, Kat jets home to England, while Shauna and I go on to Los Angeles for a few days of fun.
During our time together, we’ve been hard at work cooking up some very exciting stuff for The Blogcademy. The video above is just a little tease… And we hope you enjoy it!
Love and badminton,

Hey bunny! Greetings from glorious Palm Springs. As you have probably noticed from the proliferation of heart-shaped items in the shops, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Since this can be such a difficult day — for both singles and couples alike — I decided to come to you with a livestream full of ideas on how to kick Valentine’s Day blues to the curb.
Click on the play button and tune in below for a discussion of how we can kick Valentine’s Day’s ASS, and feel free to submit any questions you might like to have answered!

Hey babes! It’s Saturday afternoon here in New York City, and I’m just about to go live with my Google Hangout on Making Magic In 2014. I have a few tricks up my sleeve which I can’t wait to share with you.
At the end of the Hangout, I’ll be answering some questions submitted by you. If there’s something you’d like to know, click through to the event page and submit a question by clicking on Q&A!

It was bittersweet to say goodbye to beautiful Queensland… But the time had come. We had four classes to teach!
In the week we spent with Tourism And Events Queensland, in the capable hands of Jess and Celeste, we managed to pack in more activities and incredible experiences than I could have ever imagined. So of course, it was only right to make a video of our weird and wonderful time in Queensland.
Click below to get an eyeful!
We’re so thankful to Tourism And Events Queensland, as it was their generosity in bringing us over to Australia that enabled us to come and teach four sold-out classes. Because of them, we realised how much enthusiasm they have down under!
We can’t wait to come back at the end of the year, and if you’d like to join us, be sure to register soon because we’re almost out of seats!
