Our founder Katie was invited along to Canterbury Christ Church University on Monday. She formed one of four on the panel of the Occupational Therapy (BSc) Hons final year group assessment day for their Innovation and Entrepreneurship module. The module aims to utilise the group’s knowledge of occupation to investigate and respond to emerging opportunities for service development and entrepreneurial practice. The course enabled students to develop abilities in collaboration, negotiation, planning and presentation within deadlines. 

Katie said, “This module is fantastic for the students as it really encourages them to think outside the box and think practically as to how they can solve problems faced by their industry. They're able to take what they have learnt from the course and what they have experienced working in industry and take it one step further. They can apply it them in a way that they perhaps would not have been considered otherwise”. 

Sat on the ‘Dragons Den panel’, Katie was seated between the Universities Student Enterprise Manager, helping students with career development and also an Occupational Therapist specialising in mental health.

Katie said, “The standard of the studens work was extremely high. The attention to detail was very apparent and it was evident that these students had put great thought and effort into the module, which they all clearly enjoyed. They all generated business plans to support gaps in the market they had identified, encouraging them to take ideas to the next level considering how to make them a feasible business”. 

So much consideration had gone in, the groups has no issues with answering questions that the panel through at them after their presentations as they’d all clearly done their homework!

Katie concluded, “It is so great to see young talent being encouraged to think entrepreneurially. There were so many brilliant ideas in the room. Bringing groups together to encourage group working and also start considering how to make feasible businesses from the ideas was wonderful to see and be involved with”.

The students will find out how they did in a few months time and Katie looks forward to sitting on the next panel in May.

Valentines Day Clothing - going out or staying inLast week, we ran you through some great gift ideas forValentines day – whether with a significant other or not, Valentines day is a great opportunity to celebrate your love for friends and family, as well as yourself.

This week, we gear you up for what to wear with some Valentines inspired outfit ideas, what ever you plan to do.

Going out? Dress up for love with:
Su jersey wrap dress front open with easy touch closures
The elegant wrap style, is the perfect piece for a special occasion. With the dress fully opening and closing securely
with touch closures, the only difficulty you have is deciding how to outfit it. 

We have dressed the Su Wrap Dress in a couple of ways, always layering with the Maria Jersey Vest for ease underneath. 

Firstly, we have paired with the Lianne Knitted Cape in Dragon Red for a warmer, more elegant look. Without sleeves, this cape will be easier to take off and put back on yourself, leaving you to enjoy your time.

Secondly, the Molly Cardi in Dragon Red is high stretch for ease to get on and extra comfort. It has an effortless classic feel.

Both cape and cardi contain the same shade of red as used in the gingko print dress, making them outfit perfectly.

Staying in? Treat yourself to cosy comforts with:

Our cosy Julia nightshirt will ensure you have a cosy night in and get a great nights sleep. Front fastens with touch closures, Julia gives you the option to avoid overhead dressing. The long sleeved 38" length nightshirt has a pretty allover floral print, flattering collar and stylish satin trim. The perfect companion for a night in.

Match back with our warming non-slip bed socks to help prevent falls through slipping. Add extra warmth with either a Lilly Knitted Cape or Laura Knitted Wrap layered over the top. We love the charcoal colour with the pink as they make a perfect combination. With no armholes and sleeves, the cape and wrap are an easier 'throw on, throw off' item.
