#1807 All blue everything

Photo: Katherine Lowe

Here's the good news: I'm flying to Sydney in one hour – courtesy of Sunglass Hut – for an event at their store in the fancy new Westfield Mall that everyone's been talking about. Other good pieces of news include the fact that I was bought an Air New Zealand Works Deluxe ticket, giving me lounge access and priority check-in; plus Sunglass Hut very kindly allowed me to extend my departure date until the seventh of May so that I can stay and cover Sydney Fashion Week (hereafter referred to as RAFW). But the best piece of news of all is that my best good friend Katherine Lowe came to visit me last night toting an early birthday parcel with my name written all over it. Inside was a brand new Cambridge Satchel Company Batchel in navy blue, with the letters IHM embossed on the front in gold. Quite literally, it's just what I've always wanted.

And the not such good news: after finally mentioning my big exciting New York project yesterday, I received an email this morning saying that it might not happen due to VISA complications. I spoke way too soon. Murphy's Law at its finest. I'm not giving up hope, but it's back to the drawing board for me before it all works out. Thus the blue on blue on blue on blue on blue outfit. It suits my mood.

Next stop Sydney.

I LIKE YOU!

Yay for the satchel and Miss Lowe for nailing the perfect gift. Yay for Sunglass Hut and RAFW. Boo for the Visa. Boo for complications. Why do complications exist? To make the successes sweeter. Fingers crossed for you :)

That's a fine looking satchel Isaac. Fingers crossed on New York - visa complications aren't insurmountable.

Could you give us a review on that satchel please. If you want it hard enough it will happen, even if it's not now.

The mall looks so amazing, really want to go!
And good luck with the project, ambitious things have ups and downs, but it's only going in one direction.
