Maybe it is the season or maybe it was just a need for a little retail therapy that hit everyone at once, but last week was all about shopping.
It started on Wednesday when a package arrived from Florida. The necklace that AJaron designs had made for me was inside and even more beautiful than I had anticipated. Included in the package was a note from Amanda saying that she had scored a slot on The Home Shopping Network in March. I will be sure to keep you posted so you can ‘see’ the fabulous Amanda and her gorgeous jewelry. Thanks Amanda, I love it!!
Next up was a pre-opening reception for Bella Bridesmaids. Alice Hendry, planner extraordinaire, put together a lovely little champagne reception for all the industry insiders to view of Caroline Hamburg & Angela McMillin’s new ‘baby’. French Confections provided a stunning cake and Nick of Thyme did the canapés. It was all very chi-chi. Your wedding diva even found a little something for herself: the perfect frock for this spring’s Bridal Buyer’s Award in Harrogate. Yeah! I can cross that off my list. Just because it’s called Bella Bridesmaids doesn’t mean that it isn’t a perfect place for special occasion frocks as well.
Next up, the Ladies Who Limo took to the streets to do a little early Christmas shopping before we all get too busy to care. Diane Nesbitt provided the transportation in one of her completely lux rides from Matchless Limousines. Nestled in the soft leather seats sipping champagne along with your diva and Miss Diane were Lesli Emmets the lady behind the lens at Divine Images and Vickie Hudson, the concierge at the 5-star, 5-diamond Hermitage Hotel. I have to tell you the girls had a blast. If you hate the crowds, hates the parking and whole shopping line experience…what better way to ease the pain then having one’s own personal chauffeur and vehicle brought up to each of the shop doors….fun, fun, fun. Definitely give Diane and company a call to schedule your own ladies day out. You won’t be disappointed.
