So, we’ve finally recovered from our first tattoo convention, all we can say is we can’t wait for the next one! Yes, it was exhausting but we had so much fun and met so many great people that it was worth every minute. And it was great to see Now, Voyager get such a great reception from everyone. We decided to use the convention to introduce some new products, including Sailor Jerry and our beautiful new Valentine’s range with includes a variety of heart shaped cake-hats and a Valentine’s variation on our trademark corsage and an abundance of rose hair clips in all different colours and sizes.
It was a great weekend for old and new faces; we loved catching up with Cam at her beautiful Bow and Crossbones stall and while we were there we couldn’t resist placing another order of her gorgeous jewellery for your delectation. We’d also like to say congratulations to Cam and wish her good luck with the opening of her store Mrs. Miniver’s Boutique in Birmingham’s The Oasis Market. So if you find yourself nearby, be sure to pay her a visit! We will be taking a peek when we find ourselves in Birmingham at the Memorabilia Show on the 27th-28th March.
We also made sure we took time to pay a visit to the boys at Cult Classics, but it was only a flying visit as they too were busy beavering away, as was our good friend Naomi at the Frith Street booth. It was good to see a few Southend girls about at the convention and it was absolutely thrilling to see lots of girls wearing their Now, Voyager hair accessories that they had bought that day at Born Bad at Komedia on the Saturday night!
We came away from Brighton with a new brand that will shortly be making an appearance on these pages, but until then you’ll have to pay us a visit in store to sample some of Old Skull’s finest in nautical style pencil skirts, candy stripe blouses and super-cute, super-short sailor shorts.
Phewww, after all that action we packed up the car and headed back home for a much needed rest which unfortunately never came…. we had loads of preparation to do for our next event the following Sunday! But who needs rest when the rest of the world is calling out for glamour and we’ve been appointed as the ones to provide it? If you fancy paying us a visit at one of the many events we’re doing throughout the year, make sure you sign up to our mailing list (top right corner) and you’ll never be out of the loop. We would like to say a massive thank you to Fliss’s sister Jess who was absolutely indispensible this weekend, she truly is our little princess. And also to Jessie, Jack and Rosa who were the consumate hosts for the weekend and were not fazed at all by us three very tired, but very excited girls.
Love and Kisses

This weekend we will be away at the Brighton Tattoo Convention, so unless we see you there any orders made over the weekend will be posted out on Tuesday 2nd February. As this is our first convention, we’re super excited and a little nervous! But no matter what happens this weekend, we’re going to have fun! So if you see three very excited girls (us plus Fliss’s angel of a sister Jess who is lending us a much needed helping hand) selling beautiful hair accessories, be sure to drop by and say hello. We’ve got loads of new goodies that aren’t yet up on the website yet, including Sailor Jerry tanks and tees for ladies, new swallow detail shirts in black and white from Collectif and our super lovely Valentine’s range to get you in the mood for love!

As some of you know our Southend store opened its doors 3 months ago and now here we are starting the fabulous new year by launching our website! The last few months have been crazy and amazing for us both and we’ve got all of our friends and families to thank for everything they have done for us- we love you all.
Now, Voyager opened its doors early October ’09 and we were joined by friends, family and customers for cupcakes and bubbles. It was the perfect ending to a stressful couple of months but the beginning of a fun and exciting adventure.
In December we were invited to Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club’s Christmas fete where we drank mulled wine and provided the ladies of East London with Now, Voyager’s finery including handmade Christmas fascinators. We had such a fabulous day and everyone loved Now, Voyager so much that the lovely Charlotte has invited us back to their Valentine’s fete in February.
We’ve got a couple of events coming up which will hopefully gives us the opportuniuty to meet some of our lovely customers; we’re super excited about Now, Voyager attending the Brighton Tattoo Convention on the 30th and 31st January so if you’re there, come say hi! We will also be at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club Valentine’s Love a Fayre on Sunday 7th February where you will be able to pick up all kinds of heart shaped handmade gifts for your loved ones and enjoy a drink and some music at the same time.
To celebrate the launch of our website we’re offering 10% off Now, Voyager hair accessories until the end of January, so treat yourself to one of our flowers or if you’re feeling daring, choose from Fliss’s favourite “Party Bag” range to help lift those winter blues!
Just make sure you keep your eyes peeled for new products which we will be adding all the time over the next few weeks, especially a lot more clothing. So, if you want to keep up to date on all our news, events, new stock and just Now, Voyager gossip in general, be sure to join our mailing list by entering you email address into that lovely pink ticket in the top right corner of this page.
