T minus 4 weeks today! Arrrggghhh!
Still so much to do for the launch party. Yaaaay more work to do!
Here’s the update of this week. I got told my figure was a bit “Pear Shaped” not sure I am quite over that comment if I’m honest. I also had a number of headaches during the week and I have seen 4am more times in the last week than I have done since I was 17 years old.
All in all a busy week but I think the highlight has been seeing my Niece and Nephew. It’s always nice being Auntie Mel because I can actually be me, a big kid! I can be as loud as I want, as silly as I want, I can wear no make up and not be judged and talk kid talk.
It’s Saturday night and after a really busy day cramming as much in as I can, I’m babysitting which is lovely. Kids are asleep so I am making time to catch up on Melita Latham! Happy Wedding Anniversary to my Brother and Sister-in-law.
My sister-in-law bought me a bottle of red and some treats for the evening, Now usually I would go for the red wine but decided to eat the chocolate instead, what does it matter I already look pear shaped apparently. I worked out the pack of digestive mini’s is 620 calories. After. I. ate. them. all! Gah!
So, Melita Latham Luxury Travel accessories are being delivered to my work place next week. The products should all be ready by this time, a slight delay but we fixed it on Thursday so yeah, really, really excited.
I will be doing a vlog when the boxes arrive so I have my reaction on film as it all will contribute to the montage being shown at the launch party. I am trying to imagine what they will look like. I know what the products look like but I mean is the whole thing packaged and tied with ribbon the overall presentation. I just hope it is as amazing as my dreams.
I am excited to restock, assuming it takes off of course, but I want it to be like the very first time I watched The Apprentice when Alan Sugar was telling the candidates about buying and selling. Still to this day it is my favourite part of show, the task where they sell as much as they can and then restock. Although I haven’t caught up on it yet this month. I will do that this week!
As soon as I get the stock this week I have to get them photographed for the website and start my promotion campaign properly. I also have a fashion shoot the end of this month along with meeting bloggers and organising the launch. It’s going to be a crazy few weeks.
I haven’t sorted out the invitations to the launch yet. I have to get them designed. The things I have to think about seem little but really are big deals.
My promo video is doing well which is great. It has been viewed approx 4000 times on one social media platform and another 3000 times on the other social media sites in 5 days. So hopefully this will help get my brand out there.
I will upload to Youtube and my favourite social media site Twitter the latest as it happens so keep an eye out for the next vlog.
Thinking about my week that I have had, on reflection I think I need to use the time out that I have after work to actually take the time out. Make sense? Some nights, even though I am trying my best to shut off, my brain is elsewhere a lot thinking about the business. I need to stop once in a while. Save the energy and focus on something else. Appreciate the spare time as I probably won’t have much of it soon.
Here is a sneak peak of some of the products you can expect from Melita Latham. I love them all.
I will be honest though, I am slightly afraid. It is a business after all. I know I will do my very best but it’s hard to avoid the “What if’s” in my head, Anyhow, I will just keep doing what I am doing and hope for the best.
Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages of support it has been awesome.

I should make the effort to blog a bit more I might up it to twice a week instead of once a week give myself more work to do, but hey, that’s fine to completely contradict myself about taking time out.
How about I do another food review? I am good at those! I have plenty of places on my list I want to go to next so I haven’t got a shortage of restaurants to try out. Plus I’M PAIR SHAPED what does it matter if I like my food? I hope you know Mr whatever your name is. I am OK with that! OK!
I’ll let you know how I get on with my food blogs.
With Love Mel x
