Hi I’m Amy, and I am here to help YOU nail your Pinterest game.
Whether you’re launching a new project, are already an established solopreneur, just starting your small business or are a blogger, I will share the very best tips and tools to ensure you find your dream clients, reach your tribe, and shine bright online with Pinterest.
Well in 2011 I found myself in a strange country, without a job (for the first time in my adult life) and worse still, struggling to get a job!
My husband and I had just left England, friends, family and careers, and moved to New Zealand. And I quickly discovered the career I had built and loved in the UK just didn’t exist down under. With no relevant experience, and no qualifications I struggled to even get an interview let alone a job!
So, I started my blog Chic Vintage Brides (we had just got married and I was still wedding obsessed) as ‘something to do’. I had no kind of blogging experience, wasn’t on any social media (not even Facebook – what can I say, I was a late bloomer) and no real ambitions of making it my full-time job.
But Pinterest helped by blog and business blossom!
15 months later, I was now employed (woo hoo!) but better still my blog was going crazy! I had gained 4 million followers on Pinterest, seen my traffic increase to 400,000 page views a month and was named not only one of the Top 100 Wedding Blogs, but also one of 11 wedding blogs to follow on Pinterest by Vogue!
Within 2 years of creating my blog I quit my job as a Finance Manager, got myself a puppy, and started working from home, making my passion my full time job. And now I want to help you build your own, profitable business and find success online too.

6 Things about me…..

- I became vegetarian after reading a book when I was 12.
- Coffee, coffee, coffee (as long as it is decaffeinated!)
- Planes petrify me – nope it’s not easy living in NZ and having aviophobia.
- At school I did better in French, German and Italian than I did my own language?!
- Mr E and I are The Wire addicts! (best TV programme ever) We even named our dog after one of the characters 🙂
