A winter escape in the name of fashion ... | Look Feel Be

Look Feel Be

look good. feel great. be the difference

What a month July has been. Business has been tough and so has life. Not just for me, for many. Most people will tell you all is well however I've come to learn there is little value in that ...

So as I type this months blog on a return flight home from Bali I hear the Captain apologise for; "no white wine, no something else, limited drinks in general, no headsets however our IPads remain available for hire and we wish you a happy flight."

Normally I'd do that dry, slightly down turned smile then consider suitable solutions; like red wine will be fine.

Today, I am just grateful to have shared 4 days with my husband, Paul on a work trip and slowed down enough to just be. I find myself taking a mo to think of the many who can't be with their loved ones, the wars and the terribly, dreadful incidents happening around the world.

You see 6 weeks ago Paul like many in his field, lost his job and we've been laying low.

Due to bespoke orders and our LFB summer collection needing testing or sampling as they say in the industry, I was called to come and hang with our production crew and get the show on the road. So with some sweet talking I convince Paul to join me. Easy. Not so. It was Sunday; we fly Tuesday night; we discover his passport is out of date. Ahhhh. Can you believe the Australian Passport office turned his new one around in 3 hours!? Top marks.

Then he gets called in for a lengthy business meeting - an interview. Monday. Done. New project, sorted. Starts this Monday!

And then our dogs. They needed baby sitting. New dog besties, Meredith and Zoe (from Swallow Bar fame)  head over for a long dinner at ours and an induction with Samantha and Stanley Schnauzer. While showing them around we found the cellar!!! Fast track to next day...

Wow, the new Bali International Airport. Amazing! Super transformation ...

I set myself the challenge to find accommodation that was fab yet very affordable. $55 a night with breakfast and a massage each day (each) Yay! A new hotel near our team. Double yay! It's not the ideal tourist spot however if you are there for biz it's great ...

This trip was all about trying new things and making new things while meeting some new friends along the way ...

How cute are these specimens? Smiling ...

Ok, so you can tell from the pic above some fun was had.

When you start manufacturing you learn so much. And I'm so excited by Stephanie joining us and bringing new skills with passion to our team. We are developing some styles that we believe, you will love. I hope when you wear them, you have as much fun as we had in creating them! Due in store later this year.

Stay tuned to our website and social media channels to see our next blog. It is going to bring a tear to your eye. I promise you. 

Thank you for your continued support of our little business attempting to make a big difference. 

 

With a smile ... CJ & Team LFB xxx
