Hi guys! I'm so excited to share my new blog design with you! After quite a few fits and starts due to my work schedule, some unexpected summer travel opportunities and going back to school, the new Casa da Nuvea is finally here! In the next few weeks I'll be sharing with you all the restoration updates at the farmhouse, new offerings from the upcoming harvest, the launch of our online shop, delicious olive oil recipes and creative inspiration.

 I'm really proud of the new look of the site and hope you like it as much as I do. I was lucky enough to get to work with a designer I've admired for a long time, Christina Galani. She's really easy to work with, listens to your needs and has a lovely style of her own that I find inspiring. You can follow her on social media, too - I've spent many a quiet afternoon getting lost in her Instagram and Tumblr feeds.

 I've learned so much during these last few months of creating this site and business. One thing is for sure, you can't do it alone. I've always been blessed with a solid group of friends to support me in living out my personal goals and dreams over the years, but when you start your bright and shining biz not all of your friends and family necessarily want to hear about all the ins and outs of starting a small business. That's why it's so important to reach out and find a community of like-minded peeps who get you and what you're trying to do. But as we get older, it can get harder to meet other creative entrepreneurs, especially since we're all so busy working hard at building our businesses. Like a lot of other entrepreneurs, I've had to turn to the internet to find and create my own small business community. And I've discovered so many authentic, interesting and extremely talented women who are doing exactly the same thing and guess what? It helps! One of these savvy women is April Bowles-Olin and she's doing a FREE workshop next week on CreativeLive. I'm taking part in her upcoming blog tour and wanted you to know about her course, too, in case you also have an entrepreneurial spirit and could use some excellent creative marketing tips to grow your own business. And in case you're wondering, this isn't a paid post - I just like sharing my favorite resources with my readers! xx N

 “This post is a part of the Double Your Followers blog tour to spread the word about April Bowles-Olin’s upcoming CreativeLive course. Does hearing the word ‘marketing’ make your armpits start to drip with anxiety? Are you terrified of sounding salesy or like you have the personality of a dead blowfish? If so, come join me and 2,500+ entrepreneurs who’re taking April’s latest CreativeLive course, Double Your Followers with Creative Marketing. You can RSVP and watch for FREE. Yep, free. High fives, wildflowers, wine samples. Who doesn’t love free?”
