THE POSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST

This week a year ago a bunch of ladies in South London were frantically juggling cameras, laptops, saucepans and craft supplies (along with a few babies). We mustered up our limited digital know-how, threw it all together and BOOM! Ladyland was born. Since then we’ve become experts in late night blogging, dabbled in the dark arts of Google Analytics and picked up a thousand followers along the way. Yay us!

Most of you probably haven’t seen our Christmas posts from back then, so we thought we’d do a little refresh, to get you in the mood for the festive season.
