Summer Lovin'

Well seems the weather has taken a turn for the worse, I thought I'd bring a touch of summer to our screens with some summer / beach themed products available on Ugly Be Gone.

Hi and welcome to Ugly Be Gone's first post!

The sun is shinning and it's a Friday afternoon, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to sit down and immerse myself in the world of Blogging!

It's certainly been a whirlwind over the last few weeks, as went live just three weeks before I jetted off to the South of France to get married! Are you mad I hear you ask...well maybe, but as with everything in life is there ever a perfect time?

Yes a very busy couple of weeks indeed, but looking back things have gone to plan (both wedding and launch you will be pleased to know), but as expected life continues to be pretty hectic which is great!

You may be wondering what Ugly Be Gone is about.  Well UBG is a beautiful website that showcases unique and creative gifts, homeware and lifestyle products from a range of independent businesses from all over the UK. Why not take a look to see what a creative and talented nation we are.  Take your time to browse around the gorgeous items and find out about the clever folk who lovingly made them!

Well (although short and sweet) it seems that I have now dipped my toes into the blogging world.  Please do keep checking back for updates and news on sellers old (if you can call them that) and new. Talking about old sellers (well she has been on the site for nearly 7 weeks now!)  Why not take a look at our featured seller article about Lola from Wee Sparrow Jewels, who has an exclusive collection of jewellery that is only available on Ugly Be Gone.
