Would you look at me – as promised a new blog entry has happened 2 weeks after I said I would. That is amazing. Really. It is.
<<<<<<< EDIT – I KEPT FORGETTING TO UPLOAD THIS TO THE BLOG>>>>>>>>>>>
Lots so exciting things happened in March. Let me share with you the excitement.
Mooooka State School, a school on Brisbane Southside had a disco. They asked Get Lick’d Iceblocks to supply 125 iceblocks for the kids. You could imagine my excitement. I was over the moon. Knowing that kids are eating and enjoying Get Lick’d Iceblocks. Iceblocks that have nothing but goodness in them. Perfect. This all happened on International Woman’s Day aswell. What a buzz. If you’re thinking your school or day care would benefit from Get Lick’d Iceblocks – all schools and day care centres get a reduced bulk price. This is because I believe that every child should have the experience of having a healthy iceblock (and food) at school.
I attended a brand new market last month. Mumma Trash and Treasure – it was held on one of the hottest days of the year and of course, Get Lick’d Iceblocks went down brilliantly. Mumma Trash and Treasure is going to be regular market. If you love handmade, kids, designer and high quality clothes – then these are the markets for you. So many cute kids in beautiful clothes . It almost made me clucky. ALMOST. Have I mentioned I have teenagers . Enough said!
My highlight of March was definitely attending an event held by Inspire Cycle. If you have never heard of these guys, you must educate yourselves now. Basically, InspireCycle is a beat-based, choreographed indoor cycling workout designed to challenge both body and mind. How fun does that sound? They had an awesome event at The Met – yes The Met, the nightclub on Wickham Tce in The Valley. It was amazing –They deck out the nightclub with spin bikes – lots of spin bikes – and on the stage are all the instructors and a DJ spinning tunes with lights flashing. It was like I was 18 again – but without the fire engine drink in my hand and wearing tight clothes (oh, the days before children. I remember them well)
I’ve been following some of the instructors from Inspire Cycle on Instagram for about a year or so and have always wanted to go to either a class or an event at The Met, but none of my friends are ever brave enough to come with me. So when I saw that they were having a Glitter X Gold event at The Met, I email and asked if I could attend. Mind you, when I asked if I could attend I didn’t realise it was 2 days away. Lucky I work very well under pressure. Fast forward to the event night – I nailed it. Get Lick’d Electrolytes were a massive hit with everyone – including the instructors. I also met one half of The Acai Brothers, Ben and his wife Jordan– which was a buzz. I totally picked their brain about small business and marketing ideas. Free business advice from one of Brisbane’s best businesses – I’ll take it. Knowledge is power.
I also spent a morning at Resistance Sports Training with my electrolytes – that day was sooo hot, so an iceblocks with all natural ingredients went down brilliantly. Resistance Sport Training is where they ‘train smart’ and efficiently. Their sole aim to get you in elite condition for your chosen outcome. The team is a great bunch of people. If you live near Everton Park – be sure to check them out. Tell them I sent you.
Get Lick’d Iceblocks has taken a step back in April – due to family time, my son’s birthday and Easter – I am still doing some events though. I asl omade a very big Business Decision the other day and spent pretty much all of Get Lick’d Iceblocks budget on new equipment/’friends’. Be sure to keep an eye out on my socials – my new ‘friends’ are epic. Get Lick’d will definitely be round in May, so be sure to keep an eye out. Remember, if you have any events that you think Get Lick’d Iceblocks would be suited for – shoot me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
