It is our first official day back at work after the Xmas break and the first of 2008. So this week we are reflecting over our year past and year to come. 2007 was a busy time for us (there is an update here on the Fused blog) and we are hoping to keep up the momentum for ’08.
There are a few plans underway for the forthcoming months but one thing is for sure there will be more Fused’s and Blinks to come this year as well as some special edition’s and events.
Also we will be launching the Blink fashion and beauty blog keeping all fashionistas up to date with forthcoming trends and product releases.
