OK, so I’ve just planned your next holiday. You will book a long weekend in Hobart, preferably arriving on Friday morning and departing on Monday. Friday is your prep day. Do not eat much today, walk as much as you can (those extra calories will come in very handy) and mentally prepare yourself for what can only be described as a sensory smack in the face, On Saturday you will wake up hungry and walk down to the Salamanca Market where you will eat your body weight in food. Sunday and Monday will be spent lying in a horizontal position, digesting, sleeping and wondering how on earth you managed to fit in all that food.
First of all et me start off by saying a huge CONGRATULATIONS! Just 3 days ago this sexy, sportress won Young Retail Entrepreneur of the Year at the World Retail Awards. That’s a pretty big deal so you can imagine how excited I was to pick the brains (of which she evidently has lots of ) about the strategic importance of Instagram, Stylerunners position on the size 0 debate and how she stays fit and healthy whilst at the same time running a hugely successful, international business. Time to blend up some smoothies and get chatting.
Do you remember as a kid when Christmas was still 6 months away and you’d already given Santa, a.k.a your mum, your wish list. You would get so excited at just the thought of ripping open the wrapping paper to reveal Barbie’s Dream House all pink and plastic and perfect. You would count down the days. the hours and the minutes until that blissful moment. Then when it finally arrives you race to the tree and begin tearing through presents, paper flying everywhere, your eyes searching, your heart waiting to feel the joy overwhelm you, only to discover that there is no Barbie’s Dream House…..just disappointment. On a far less dramatic scale this was my experience at Ester.
