I woke up this morning with a genuine sense of excitement I hadn’t felt for a while. All the possibilities of what the next few months will bring buzzing away in my mind. Sara and I have been developing new facets for Myhibi.com ready for Spring 2013, plus I’ve added some fab new guest designers I’ve met along the way who by coincidence all happen to be one women brands. So we’re expanding!
This weekend I went to Somerset to see my friend Steve, official keeper of my wardrobe, to swap over London clothes for Rajasthan monsoon clothes, that means back to the Birkenstocks from 1st September, but I still have two nights to get the heels on, tonight the Chelsea Arts Club for dinner with favourite friends over from Australia which will be great fun and tomorrow night with the inimitable Kay Montano who has promised me she ‘shall plot to find a suitably salubrious, yet sumptuously boho banquette. . . .’ for the final stand before I head to Heathrow on Saturday. After having shared a pork belly pizza at Pizza East in Portobello Road yesterday I will embrace yoga, sweating in Monsoon heat and a vegetarian diet with open arms! Oh and maybe a bit of time away from alcohol again, this week I had my first rusty nail with another dear friend Barney Cordell.
I’m filling up my kindle with new books to read in India, all recommendations are very welcome. Otherwise I’ve enough research, studying, designing and thinking to keep me nicely occupied on my travels. Fingers crossed for some sun!
So farewell then London, Amsterdam, Andalucia, Australia, any other destinations of 2012 and hellllllloooooo India!!
