Here, there and everywhere
This year, so far, has been super crammed with work and exciting in equal measure. I have been so quiet that you probably thought I had left the country - well I did! Several times.
I have been over to Dublin a couple of times, and to Los Angeles, all for work. I must say I have had my fill of watch/shoes/belt/laptop/phone/toiletries out in a tray in security, hopping about trying to get boots back on - you know how it is. Passport control in LA took over one and a half hours, waiting in a hot and stuffy warehouse-like building. When we finally got to a window ( three were open for a plane load of 550 ) we went through the hand prints, the bio-metrics, eye photography, handing over passports - in silence. The large African/American official in his border security uniform and guns was very intimidating as he looked from one to the other of us and back again. The absence of words became very uncomfortable and intimidating.
Finally he uttered these words, looking straight at Trev with penetrating eyes " Well now, what you done marryin' yoo-owl sista like that? We done that where I come from but you is from the U-nited Kingdom! Go on with you now and have a great time in the US of A"
Talk about wrung out!
We were in LA to launch the Jarcessorise Collections to an unsuspecting American population, which has started very promisingly. A bit of a way to go yet but all in all it was a fantastic trip. You can check out the portfolio website here
Next I shall be doing some short videos to put on the website to give you some more ideas for using the products.
