Hello! Today I wanted to set out my plan for our lovely new Homeschool, in more detail before we truly begin to live our lives the
I have, as you know, run The Salon, my flagship membership for over five years now and it has in that time become rather beautifully bloated with all the ideas I have had on something of a whim, endless programmes and ideas, printables and workbooks. And honestly? It is lovely, and there is nothing else like it for sheer value and inspirational joie de vivre on these dear old domestic lifestyle interwebs.
But I do believe I had become the equivalent of a course producing hoarder, my head awash with all that I want you to know about living well and finding myself as a result, in an endless spin of organising all the information and inspiration that I so very much want to share.
You were overwhelmed. You told me you didn’t know where to start because there was so very much to enjoy, and I was in a perpetual muddle trying to make it easier to navigate, until one day, during isolation, it struck me that what I wanted to teach wasn’t the more is more philosophy I was rather shoving down your lovely throats, but instead a more refined, elegant pathway to domestic peace that showed you that sanctuary isn’t just something that exists within your own four walls, but must, by necessity begin in your own head. A day by day guide to our betterment, based on the eight dimensions of well-being and how they can be incorporated into our domestic lives in order to improve every aspect of our who we are, within the haven of home.
You said you wanted ONE course, one path, one monthly bundle with specific instruction, not vague (though truly scrumptious) ideas. You said you needed your hand holding tightly, a light shining on the route towards domestic joy daily, and the gentle shove of she who knows the way always. And I sat with a pen in hand for many an afternoon until I understood how I could provide all that you were asking for in one simple membership. Until HOMESCHOOL was born in my own head, and I could pull all the strings of what went before into one place.
Homeschool then is that course, the very membership YOU have asked me for, and from Monday it takes the place of The Salon for all who are members, bringing clarity and a meaningful, cohesive way forward for us all.
So What IS It?
Homeschool is a membership issued once a month in a virtual “bundle” of inspiration. Delivered in the third week of each month (so that you have time to plan for the month ahead), each bundle will include a month of to-do’s for your betterment in one gorgeous download so that you can tick them off as you work through them, one long thought-piece on the theme for that month, and accompanying homework: a workbook, Trello board or project, alongside a pick and mix resources section for your inspiration.
Members will also have step-by-step access to the existing LifeBook, a dedicated members-only area of the
Based right within the new BrocanteHome community, so you never again need to go hopping between course and conversation, Homeschool will live in one lovely app on your phone, tablet or laptop and will mean that reaching out to me will always only be one click away. (It’s nothing short of life-changing how easy it is to talk to you all now and I have had some AMAZING conversations with some of you recently!).
Sound good? It will be: I promise. But I know you will have questions so I have tried to pre-empt them below…
When Does Homeschool Start?
Homeschool gets started inside the BrocanteHome Community on Monday 7th September, with the first bundle to be issued on the 21st September, and every month thereafter, by which time you will have a thorough understanding of the routines and rituals we will be embracing together, and more than that, a personal plan for your own domestic betterment established before we begin.
Do I Need a Printer?
Not necessarily. Everything included in the monthly bundle will be accessible within the app so you really can just pop into the
Are There Different Levels of Membership?
There are indeed. You can begin your journey at HomeSchool which costs $10.99 a month, jump up to Homeschool Academy which includes dripped access to all that was in The Salon, and thus is a much more comprehensive experience for $24.99 a month, or choose Homeschool Tuition which is a one on one personalised plan and one month long coaching conversation with me AND access to HomeSchool for $199.00 a year.
(There will be just three places for Tuition per month so if you want to really dive deep and get plans in place once and for all, then be sure to
What If I Don’t Like It?
Don’t worry, if Homeschool isn’t for you, or you simply cannot find the time in any given month, cancelling is super quick and easy, right from within your own account so you won’t need to send emails or wait for a cancellation decision: you can just click to cancel in a heartbeat and no further payments will be taken, though you will of course remain a member of the
But please note in line with other online course creators, I cannot offer refunds owing to the nature of the content being immediately available.
What Happens If I’m Already a Salon Member?
If you are an existing Salon or Lifetime Member you will have received an invitation to join Homeschool last month and will have access to HomeSchool Academy from the day it goes live. Over the coming months, all of the latest courses from The Salon will be dripped into your account, and if you want to manage your account within the
When Can I Join?
School enrolment opens on Monday 7th September, and there will be an invitation right here, as well as within the
In the meantime, do make sure you join the community and spend a little while familiarising yourself with our lovely new Common Room and I will meet you back here on Monday, deal?
Have a lovely weekend…
