Winning Flowerona's April #underthefloralspell competition

I found out today that I was the winner for Flowerona's April #underthefloralspell competition! You can find the details of this competition here if you would like to enter!

I couldn't believe it when I received Rona's message on her Instagram this morning. I dream of winning competitions like these and to actually have won it was just too good to be true!

For those of you who don't know who Rona Wheeldon is... you 100% need to, especially if you are in the floral industry. Read more about her here. She has a multi-award winning blog based around all things floral. It is an amazing hub for creatives, floral and other, to find some fantastic job opportunities, find out about amazing workshops, get some inspiration, meet like-minded people and then some! She is such a wonderful human being, so kind and generous and humble.

Thank you Rona for picking me and for always supporting me and Okishima & Simmonds. You are truly such a wonderful human!
