I have been waiting for this day since I came back from New York in July last year! and I have been in anticipation of this February trip since November when I was told it was happening. It was at my friend, Rachy's, 21st Birthday where her mother announced a trip for her and a friend to go to New York as a 21st bday present. And out of all the people in world, she chose me! This is my beautiful friend Rachy throwing peace signs, who is also an aspiring designer (she made the dress in the pic below) so watch this space and remember her face:

I was so conscious of bare legs that I brought 7 pairs of nylon tights with me, and believe me it was over-bearing hot out there.
Oh and hopefully, in one week's time, I will be doing some more of this:
...But not on such an extreme level. This was in Brooklyn and these bags were not your average carrier bags. They were actually the size of black bin bags!!! They were HUGEEE!!!!!
