Well what a month that was… I actually don’t know where to start… I am almost slightly overwhelmed, beyond grateful and in short one lucky lady to be surrounded by such kindness and generosity. I always say people are so good but these last few days have certainly cemented my belief. The messages, cards, gifts and flowers that I received have blown me away. The love and gratitude I actually really don’t know what more I can say except a huge big Thank You to each and every one of you. It was just unreal.
Well what a few weeks I have had. The sunglasses launched and we had our first pop up down with Vicki in itsome in Douglas. I have worked with Vicki for years and we have become great great friends. The craic we had in the shop and sure she was cleared out of stock. Next stop was Mullingar and Enfield to my old pal Siobhan. The glasses are prescription lens compatible in 99% of cases so it was really brilliant for Siobhan to be able to chat with the Ladies about the lenses etc. Off we went then to Joan in Born in Naas. Such a laugh! I just love meeting you all and the banter is brilliant. I just love having fun and advising on the best suited colour for your complexion. The reaction to the sunglasses has been everything that I hoped it would be. As you know they were two years in the making and I left no stone unturned. I am getting the biggest buzz from watching you all wear them and from the feedback I am receiving you are all loving them. I had no choice but to place another order for Christmas. As soon as I have more information on dates etc., I will keep you all updated! That is the thing about sunglasses; we wear them all year round, not just on a sunny day.
So after my day in Born in Naas we went to Dublin to get ready for the party. Chelsea and Linda planned the best night for me. I had no idea what was happening but they certainly made it a good one. We had drinks and nibbles in The Hyatt Centric. Declan had set up the garden so nicely and the sun was splitting the stones. That was our warm up for the second part of the night. We then went on to House on Leeson Street where we had the Conservatory booked. They served the nicest meal to us and we danced all night. The girls had invited all the Ladies that I would have wanted there and the room was genuinely filled with kindness. I am so grateful to the girls for organising and for my friends that came from near and far to attend. I will say it again, I am one lucky lady.
So, why do I do it to myself lol… Flight out to Boston the day after a full on night out… I am a sucker for punishment of that there is no doubt. It was ideal really though because Linda and her family were flying out as well so we all went together. Where do I start with Boston; Like I could be here until next week writing. Peter & Nadine treated me like royalty and we had the best time. We shopped, we walked, we ate and a little bit of sightseeing. They really know how to entertain. My 50th Birthday meal with them was really very special. I cannot thank you guys enough. Thanks Peter & Nadine for always having my back and looking out for me xxx
So amongst all the joy and madness I decided to launch my ” Happy Collection” on my actual Birthday on August 29th this year. Well let me tell you, this collection has certainly made us all very happy. Looks like you all love them just as much as I do. I wanted to bring a fun and vibrant collection to the market and I really believe that when you wear them you do actually feel happy. They will start to dispatch in the next few weeks and again once I see you all wearing them I will be very “happy” lol… Click here to purchase from the happy collection.
I could stay writing this month forever but I think I should leave it here. Huge big thanks for all the love girls. As I always say I never take it for granted but so appreciate it.
