It's been an age - I know! Sorry for keeping you waiting so long but I had a few family bits and pieces to get organised and a ton of new stock to add to the shop so it's going to take me a few days to sit down and try to put the trip to New York into words. For now, I'm going to share a few video snippets on this post so you get a sense of how amazing it was. I feel so fortunate to have been able to experience it and I have to thank all of you who helped me with my fundraising and made it a reality! We shared our joy with so many people in the US - delegates at the New York/New Belfast conference, tons of New Yorkers in Time Square
and Central Park,
church-loads of people in Harlem, Brooklyn and New Brunswick
AND not satisfied with that, we entertained Aer Lingus passengers & cabin crew in our plane at 35,000 feet! I'm now part of the Mile High Choir Club - that's another bucket list item sorted!
I'll share what I wore on another post but suffice to say, it involved LOTS of black. The capsule worked a treat ...there was only one item I didn't wear and as my case only weighed 14kg going out, I had 9kg to shop with! Shopping opportunities were limited but I got a few lovely items - including one to give away here on the blog. Stay tuned for another post very soon but for now - I'm off to bake my own birthday cake...3 days late! :)
