My new business cards from MOO + giveaway

Business cards are an essential item for any business or blog owner. It is your face when you aren’t there. It’s a way to grab attention and stand out in the crowd. After all you are usually just 1 person in a room full of people trying to attract the interest of customers, businesses and public relations workers. A business card shows them what you’re about, showcases your personality and is basically a reminder of you are once they return to their home or office. You want them to remember you, in a positive way.

I understand people often think any business card is better than none and sometimes that may be so. I am however a firm believer in first impressions and making them count. A quality business will make a lasting impression It’s equivalent to dressing professionally for a meeting. You don’t want to walk in with boardshorts, a singlet and thongs (flip flops for our international friends) and your business cards shouldn’t have to either. You want to impress from the second you introduce yourself to the moment they get home and re-read your card. Quality is everything!

MOO business cards

I was recently asked if I would review (and offer a couple of giveaways for fans) on the MOO business card range and as I had only just re-branded the blog and needed them anyway I couldn’t say no. After much deliberation and trying to decide on which MOO business cards I wanted to represent me I opted for the Luxe business cards. I had high expectations for these cards as they are on the expensive side (in my opinion) but I was absolutely thrilled with the results. They scream I take pride in what I do! Which of course I do and I’m sure any business or blog owner does as well. The Luxe business cards are 3x thicker than your average business card (600gsm), incorporate a strip of colour (of your choice from the selection available) through the layers and brilliant quality print. Definitely worth every cent. MOO may have been established in the UK but they now supply a wide range of printed products around the world. There are so many products on offer at MOO like stickers, letterheads, postcards, flyers and the list goes on but I only talk about business cards in this post as that is I have reviewed personally.MOO business cards

We are in a digital age however the business card still remains a very effective and beneficial marketing tool. They are your last chance to make a first impression and you want that first impression to count.


Prize contains: $90 voucher (£50) for moo.com. The voucher can be used to purchased anything on the website, including delivery. Total prize pool RRP $270 (£150).

    I often put my foot in my mouth, no matter how hard I try not to! I once met a client who had just returned from leave, and I commented that they must feel refreshed after their trip. It turns out they had rushed overseas due to the death of a close relative…

      I am also a foot in my mouth kinda gal, you would think I’d learn by now. Now your circumstance is very unfortunate, hope they didn’t hold it against you.

    I am vertically and horizontally challenged! That is, I am short and wide! This makes shopping anywhere there are shelves with products high up an even bigger challenge! Usually I can find a tall person to help me retrieve a product I am after on a top shelf but on this occasion I seemed to be the only one in the supermarket.
    Looking up at the tin of champignons I needed for my stir fry I asked myself if I really needed them. The answer was yes! A quick look around and still no sign of a tall person so I proceeded to scale the shelf. With one hand on a higher shelf I stood on the bottom shelf and tried to reach but the damn champignons were not at the front and I still couldn’t reach far enough back. Two feet on the bottom shelf and “bang, crash, opera” the bottom shelf slammed to the ground. As I tried to keep grasp of the top shelf it slammed to the floor along with a mountains of cans that somehow avoided my feet!
    To my embarrassment a store worker came round the corner of the isle to see what the noise was and was concerned I was OK. I felt my face go bright red as I pulled a can of champignons from the wreckage and screamed, “Got them! You know you really should employ a “tall dude” for this sort of stuff” as I picked myself up and made a scurry to the checkout!

    • 10/09/2014 / 8:49 pm

      hahaha OH NO!! At least you got what you went for 😉

  3. 10/09/2014 / 5:26 pm

    Love the cards – they look fab!

    I think I probably make a bad impression anytime I go anywhere with my 6 kids! They all run, yell, touch things in stores and generally freak me out – surely they are doing the same to the general public!

    • 10/09/2014 / 8:42 pm

      Thanks so much Jody! haha I am 1 of 5 kids and I remember what we were like (innocent angels of course), I couldn’t imagine me being the one trying to wrangle that many. I’m sure they aren’t as bad as you think, you just stress about it. xx

    i walked my client out of the room thinking the time was up, but we were only half way through… so embarrassed.

    • 10/09/2014 / 8:38 pm

      Thanks so much Sj. I love your blog name! Make sure you leave a comment telling me your worst first impression to enter the giveaway 🙂

    Ooooh I’ve been wanting to splurge on some MOO cards for a while but I’m a bit short on cash at the moment, so I’d love to win!

    The worst first impression I’ve ever made? On my first interview for my previous job, I walked into the room and nervously tripped over the table leg of the boardroom desk – my handbag went flying, I fell out of my shoe and whacked my head into the wall, whilst loudly exclaiming “MotherF***er!!”

    ..yep. True story. Not the best first impression at all, but somehow I still got the job! 😛


    • 10/09/2014 / 8:36 pm

      haha that would be me yelling MotherF***er, I have a potty mouth at the best of times. Well that job was obviously meant to be.

    The first time, I met my now partner, I couldn’t stop laughing at his accent. I was so nervous and had a couple of drinks. I couldn’t understand what he was saying at all and just kept nodding and laughing at all the wrong parts of the conversation, if you can call it that. It ended up being pretty one sided. I’m lucky he found it endearing, to everyone else I just looked like a knob. He now speaks much more clearly and I’ve learnt to adapt my hearing 🙂

    • 10/09/2014 / 8:35 pm

      hehehe the things you do for love even if you do just look like a knob!

  7. 10/09/2014 / 8:14 pm

    The worst first impression I ever made was while I was introduced to a mutual friend at the shopping centre & one of my boys yelled out “who is that fat lady?” I have never wanted to hide so bad in my life.

    • 10/09/2014 / 8:32 pm

      Kids seem to love making their parents hide in shame, maybe that’s why we embarrass them when they are older 😉

  8. 10/09/2014 / 8:30 pm

    When my boys were slightly encouraged (by photographers) to peek down the wax works version Delta Goodrem’s dress /bosem- then it appeared on the Project (TV)

  9. When I was 18 I was at a friends birthday party and got very very “happy” on some “lemonade” and when my boyfriend showed up with some of his friends I’d not met before I walked up, kissed my BF, turned to them, said “Hi, I’m Kylez… Man I need a cigarette” turned around to go find one and tripped over the edge of the garden and fell face first in the dirt. I can tell you I was pretty damn embarrassed about it the next day when my BF told me, but thankfully at the time I was too “happy” to notice and do much more than just lie there laughing!

    Worst first impression ever was courtesy of my then-3yo. I was in the line at the petrol kiosk, wanting to pay, and I was just being friendly and smiling at the gentleman with a large pot-belly just behind me.

    Then out pops my son’s little innocent voice… “Is he pregnant too, Mummy?”

    I was mortified, didn’t know how to answer…

    And then he asks again, “Mummy? Mummy, is that man pregnant too?” And this time pointing to him too. You know, just in case I didn’t get what he was talking about.

    I was next to pay, and hurriedly did so, and nodded very apologetically as we made our way out.

    • 11/09/2014 / 7:32 pm

      hehe I love how they are so inquisitive and embarrassing!

    Being on a bus with a 6 month old that farts, the silent and deadly type and it smells like I did it. That’s my first impression for all those strangers on the bus. Hopefully they will never see me again.

    My foot is a permanent fixture in my mouth.
    Dropping my son at school, meeting his teacher for the first time. I ask when was she due ??

    She wasnt pregnant!!!!!!!!! Hope my son passes 😛

    First night out after first baby’s birth. An important business dinner with the spouse’s clients.
    Guess who’s milk let down during main course?…

    AND was then found in the ladies under the hand drier by another wife ?

  14. 11/09/2014 / 3:37 pm

    I was at a new client side and after leaving the ladies, walked back to the office with my skirt tucked high into my granny undies. No one said a word. I only realised when I sat down and felt an extra layer of fabric. How embarrassing.

  15. 12/09/2014 / 7:22 am

    oh the worst first impression, like when I was supposed to meet someone at the airport and I even had a photo of them so I would recognize them and they walked straight past me and had to come and find me! Oh dear.

    I’m always a flustered nervous stressed person when I am under pressure or in a rush I tend to baffle and mumble jumble my words making myself look like I talk this unknown language which is bad as it shows my nerves straight away 🙁

    Going for a job interview. I sat through it happily – even got up and walked around the table to introduce myself to the 3 scary employers there. Realised as I got in my car they would have all had an eyeful as my skirt was tucked into my stockings. Needless to say I didn’t get the job 🙁

  18. 15/09/2014 / 11:06 pm

    I was wearing rollers in my hair and had to dash outside to save the garbage bins from flying onto the road on a windy day. I forgot that I was in my PJs. A guy was jogging by and he smiled when he saw me. I quickly looked away and dashed inside full of embarrassment. And you know how once you’ve seen someone (or car) you tend to see them again everywhere? Well, that same week I went to leave my resume at some local businesses and the guy was one of the bosses to whom I gave a copy!

    Innocent little me, alone in New York for the first time, trying to break into the dog-eat-shark world of publishing at a conference. After lots of circling, I finally managed to see an agent, the person who, even more than editors, hold a writer’s future in their delicate hands. OK, thinks I, let’s be smart. Professional. Courteous but charming. I bumble over to her and in ten seconds, manage to spill my drink, scatter my business cards all over the floor and tear two buttons from my top – all accompanied by some creative Aussie swearing. The agent skittered away as fast as I longed to. I never saw another agent for the next two days of the conference. This was seven years ago; my novel still sits in the draw like discarded, soggy business cards.

    I was at a Christmas party and someone had found out my name from someone else and took the effort to introduce herself and had my name already. Sure enough, I introduced myself with my name. Socially awkward and could swear that I heard crickets for the next ten seconds!

    Worst first impression ever – we had a new boss who was an Irish. On my first get-to-know chat with him, I said to him that his English was pretty good. He just smiled and nodded. Later, I found out that English is the native language for most Irish. Oops.

    Not one I’ve made but how others have perceived me…yes I might have a couple of tattoos (7) and extra piercings but I’m a Education assistant in pre primary and well loved by all the children…so parents before you know me don’t judge me

    My first job interview. I was hoping to sound eager for the position but in retrospect sounded more like a over pompous egoistic moron

    I bite my nails so when I meet people and they see my fingers it’s defiantly not a good impression

    First job interview many years ago my father insisted he come with me it was so embarrassing

  27. 24/09/2014 / 9:29 pm

    I suffer from foot in mouth syndrome, I could possibly dedicate an entire blog to my condition. The most recent would be the time I was happily chatting with who I thought was a gay artist I’d met at a dark and loud gallery opening a week before, only to be told he was the hubby of one of my clients.

    My first day at school, the whole class sitting in a circle on polished floor boards – I wet myself. A big puddle just slowly flowed from where I was sitting.
