With International Woman’s day upon us I thought I would share a bit about new beginnings.
We have come a long way since a woman smoking tailored cigarettes in public was a major step forward!
I remember my first buying trip abroad. I went alone to Vicenza Italy to attend one of the biggest jewellery shows in the world. It was January 1995, it was freezing cold and I didn’t know my arse from my elbow …
I was buying jewellery on a shoestring budget from Italians with whom it was difficult to communicate, I felt like “miss no one from nowhere”!
Every night I sat alone in the hotel restaurants eating dinner chocking over every mouth full. No iPhone security blanket in those days.
I made it home sold the goods and I was on my way.
