Surely it can't be that time already! Where has the year gone?!

We've been swept up in such a crazy whirlwind of madness that it's almost like Mystic Magic has hitched a ride with Dorothy to Oz, wicked witches in all! 

Whilst I can just about stop my head from spinning to regain some sense of normality, I want to take this moment of treasured time to catch my breath and reflect on our top 5 highlights of 2015.

Get ready as this countdown is going to be a corker! 

5.Vogue Features x2 and Magazine Interviews
It's certainly been no secret throughout this year we have spent a great percentage of our time targeting the local press and media in Norfolk, as after all that's where our roots first took shape. We thought it was about time to stir up some excitement and echo the voice of Mystic Magic across the county by sharing an insightful taster into our fantastical world of fantasy.

Magazine interview features As Seen in Iceni, KL Magazine, Lynn News, Norfolk Magazine, Suffolk Norfolk and Eastern Daily Press.

Our goal was to share my unique story in the hope of inspiring others to get creative and aim high proving anyone can live a dream if they just have the courage to take that first step in starting their adventure.

Plus it was also a huge Hello to many who'd never even heard of us before!

4. Photo Shoot collaborations

Although our creative photo shoots this year took a bit of a step back while we worked behind the scenes on other projects and allowed a small selection of trusted photographers to interpret their own imagination with our designs, we still had quite a few Great collaborations to reminisce about and were lucky enough to have the pleasure of being on location for.

Here's a few of our favourites from the trusted photographers...

2. Crowdfunding campaign

Some of you might be able to remember way back in June when we announced the launch of our Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for helping complete our first ever full fashion catwalk collection entitled Redemption. Still a working progress that shall continue into 2016, this theatrical collection is set to be the defining moment for Mystic Magic where once completed we shall submit the finished set to London Fashion Week for showcasing on their luxurious runway.

Throughout the whole process from start to the very end we had so much friendly support from fans all over the world including those closest to us who we can't even begin to thank enough for having faith and belief in our fantastical vision...

And after lots of hard work promoting, much perseverance and everyone who lovingly made a contribution, we surprised all including ourselves when we actually reached the target goal of 100% - Hooray!!! 

1.Strictly Come Dancing

And finally our number one highlight of this year without a doubt has to be the Strictly Halloween pro dance routine special where any good Mystic Magic fan will know how we crazily just about made a whole collection of 12 chess headpieces in under a week with no time to spare and very little sleep!

Only the stars above know how we managed to pull it off as even now when I look back I'm still completely baffled pondering on the idea of achieving this tremendous challenge!

Well that's it for our 2015 tornado of crazy! Looking back we've actually achieved far more than first realised and are as always extremely grateful to everyone who's worked with us along the way. All the models, new friendships made including our lovely clientele and our ever growing fan base who without your all important support wouldn't allow us to be were we are now.
Every day is a true blessing to be shared.
I personally want to give an extra special thank you to Mystic Magic's PR Emma and PA Dean who's uplifting support and hard work throughout this year has harvested us some Great opportunities and sown many new seeds for the future. Thank you Emma and Dean!!
And finally one last thank you to Lee Woodward who's quickly becoming our #1 favourite photographer and has massively helped us with our product photography, giving the Mystic Magic website a cleanly fresh feel!
 Bring On 2016!
