Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the 2013 catalogue launch of Howards Storage World. Brand Meets Blog organised the function at a quaint little inner city guest house in Brisbane called "Franklin Villa".
"Franklin Villa" is a beautifully restored historic mansion located 1 kilometre from the Brisbane CBD and a close walk to the entertainment strip of Southbank and restaurant scene of West End. It was the most glorious day in Brisbane yesterday and Spring is definitely here. The warm balmy breezes were blowing while we enjoyed high tea on the enclosed verandah of the guest house while Kathy, Jillian and Elvio from Howards Storage World shared some great organising tips and gave us insight into the new 2013 catalogue.
The table was set with floral napiery, vases of blooming jasmine, beautiful china filled with hot tea and three tiered trays of high tea goodness adorned the tables.
This was the first function of this kind that I have ever been too and I finally got to meet some of Queensland's blogging elite. It was great to meet Louisa and Heather from Brand Meets Blog and get to speak to these famous Queensland bloggers in person and hear about their organisation struggles that we all seem to have.
I went for a browse around the guest house and beautifully decorated rooms filled with quirky, vintage finds. A beautiful place to stay for that weekend city getaway.
We then drove onto the Howards Storage World store at Westfield Garden City and had a quick look through the store. I could've spent more time there but had to get back to pick the kids up from school. I'm planning on heading back to spend time with Jenny, the franchisee, to plan how I'm going to set up my new sewing/crafting room. Howards has a lot more than cupboard and drawer inserts. Complete storage solutions for all parts of the home and reasonably priced. Some of the things that caught my eye were:
Pretty floral clear storage baskets
Georgeous range of bathroom accessories
Cute little matchbook size emery boards
Over door iron and ironing board holder
And to top it all off, we all received an insulated lunch bag (with ice brick) filled with cute little things like reusable lunch wraps, eco balls for washing clothes, boot hangers, packing cell travel bag, insulated cup and, my favourite, the Grid-It!
Imagine having all your regular handbag essentials in this one spot? Then all you have to do when changing handbags is grab the Grid-it! It doubles as mouse pad on the reverse side with an extra pocket for storage. Thanks Brand Meets Blog and Howards Storage World for a fabulous day!
