So, if you follow Hiho Silver on Instagram, you’ll already have an idea about the Style, Skills and Silver day which Hiho are hosting at the glorious Fish Hotel in The Cotswolds on the 6th September. Hopefully by now you’ll have the date already cleared in your diary, because I promise you – it’s not one you want to miss! But, if you want a little more information to tempt you…here’s a quick low down of what to expect.
Oh, and did I mention – tickets are very limited and available on a first come, first served basis so make sure you’re watching Hiho’s Instagram stories VERY closely at around 9pm this evening!
What can you expect?
Well, first and foremost it’s about having a fabulous day out, in a stunning setting with tea, cake, lunch and a chance to make new friends and meet the people behind the brands. Yep there was an intentional plural there because Hiho are bringing some well-known friends to the party, two of my very favourite – Mackenzie & George and Fairfax & Favor!
The day is a celebration of country style, Great British brands and fun interactive workshops to give you insights into country styling, getting that perfect Instagram shot and building your social media. Not only will some of your favourite brands be there (yep, there’s more!), a number of Hiho’s brand ambassadors and friends will also be hand to talk all things style and skills as well as answering any questions you may have. So let me introduce you to the teams running the day’s workshops:
Rhea Freeman: You all know how highly I think of Rhea, not only is she a total PR whizz she’s also the best business coach and creative content writer I know. Having the opportunity to pick Rhea’s brains about, well anything! is a real coo. It’s worth coming along for the day just for this opportunity.
Emma Warren: Rhea’s joined by some pretty big social media, business coaching and brand building queens and Emma certainly tops the list here. Queen Bee of Hiho no less (as well as a number of other businesses including the amazing Dimpsey Glamping) Emma’s also a creative genius and what this lady doesn’t know about brand building, well frankly isn’t worth knowing.
Sophie Callahan: My endlessly talented friend and fellow Hiho (and Mackenzie & George) brand ambassador will be joining the skills group, because well- have you seen her photography skills?! Not only that, Sophie’s an exceptional vlogger, blogger and country queen so she’ll be chatting all things branding, social media content and photography!
Rachel Bragg: The brain behind Sweet Images and another superbly talented photographer, Rachel is the champion of flat lay photography so if you want to inject some style and creativity into your Instagram – Rachel is your lady. She’ll be showing you how to make the most of your photos (even if they’re just taken on your phone) and providing some top tips for that perfect Insta pic! (I’m definitely going to be listening in on that one!)
Melanie Clarihew: One half of Mackenzie & George. Need I say more? Melanie’s the creative genius behind all of the stunning designs that British accessory brand Mackenzie & George have become so well-loved for. If anyone can talk to you about how accessories make an outfit, it’s Melanie. And she’ll be on hand to do just that. The style workshop will focus on harnessing your own personal style as well as providing handy tips to create a perfect outfit, whether you want to know how to inject a bit of style at the stables or dressing up – this workshop is for you.
Karen McConnell: Fellow country style blogger and equestrian, Karen will be on hand alongside me to help with styling challenges and provide tips on what makes the perfect outfit. If you’re following Karen on Instagram you’ll know she’s recently shot to Insta-fame following her outfit and styling coverage of the Royal Highland Show earlier this summer. So you’ll definitely be learning from the best!
Me: Yep, I’ll also be there to help with the style group. I’m so honoured to be able to take part in such an exciting event and I can’t wait to meet you all! Hopefully I’ll be able to help with country style tips and show you that the country set really are leading the way in the style stakes these days.
Is it for me?
Yes, yes yes!! it’s for absolutely everyone that fancies a lovely day out. If you want some styling tips and to learn from social media pro’s, then it’s a bonus. But you don’t have to be a blogger, vlogger or country business owner to attend – far from it. It really is not one to be missed, so make sure you’re around to get your ticket this evening!
Oh and did I mention the goody bags?!
Yes, as if there wasn’t enough to tempt you, everyone gets a goody bag at the end of the day. Now I’ve seen some of what’s going into the goody bags, and let me tell you – they are GOOD! I’ve mentioned some of the brands participating already…all I’ll say is theres a good-high chance they may be appearing in the goody bags. Let me tell you the day is worth attending just for these!
So what are you waiting for?
Make sure you are on hand to order tickets at 9pm this evening because once they’re gone, they really are gone. It’s not something you’re going to want to miss!
I can’t wait to see you all there in September!
