The Importance of Taking a Break

I have left Butterfly Collection in the very capable hands of Christine, Lucy and the team while Paul and I are away enjoying a couple of weeks in the UK. I absolutely love my job because running a bra company for busty women has been my dream for a long time, but I had forgotten how important a real vacation is.

Our lovely boat Rapallo in Portavadie Marina
We're boating around the Western Isles of Scotland and the total tranquility is already recharging my batteries and getting my creative juices flowing again. We're on Loch Fyne near the Mull of Kintyre surrounded by whiskey distilleries, eagles, heather and shortbread - fantastic! Mr Butterfly and I have enjoyed several rum and cokes and all my favourite British snacks (KP dry roasted nuts being a big one!)

The weather has been so unpredictable in Canada this year that it's been hard to recharge your batteries, but if you get the chance to take even a weekend away from your regular life then I highly recommend it.

Butterfly Collection has had a great week in our absence (perhaps we should go away more often!) Before I left I was interviewed by Shiral Tobin (@shiral on Twitter) from CBC Radio One in B.C. for her segment Pinched. The interview aired on Tuesday and literally hundreds of people got in touch with us and checked out the website for the first time which was phenomenal. Shiral was such a good sport and didn't mind me telling her that her boobs were asleep! She left the interview in a brand new, properly fitting bra which made me very happy. You can listen to the CBC interview here. I hope you all have fantastic weekends lined up. xx
