Everything's picking up lately -- after a brutally quiet six months in the fashion/beauty industry, companies are throwing parties again, hosting meals, having events, everything's more or less back to normal, and, for the first time in ages, I think there's a general sense of excitement in the air about the future.
I'm excited about the future.
For me, this spring means less time saddled to my desk, staring at the computer, talking on the phone (which, for anyone who knows me, knows I hate doing), and more time going out meeting new people, having coffee with supermodels (!! I am doing this today, this afternoon, so exciting), and rediscovering/sourcing/finding fun, interesting stories the old fashioned way -- face to face, walking around, observing people, parties, things.
Fingers crossed the weather keeps up!
