The holiday was great...

But now it's back to work. Mark and I took 3 weeks off to travel to England to see his cousin Mark and family. We had not been to England since 2000 and had not seen Mark over there since 1998. Just loved it. Then to New York to celebrate a significant birthday and cash in the remainder of Mark's frequent flyer points.

Me on the flight deck of the USS Intrepid in New York.

But now we're back it is all systems go as we order stunning new stock for later this year and early 2016. And of course we are now starting production of our next newsletter with mark shooting some products in the studio. Like this new head scarf in our own Spirit of Life range.

Don't you just love it? Really stands out!

Well.. at last it is open

Well.. at last it is open.. Legacy Way tunnel that is. You may think that this is a strange thing to write about on a mastectomy fashion blog, but there is a reason.

Now ladies from Ipswich and Brisbane's Western Suburbs can get to our Spirit of Life Boutique at Clayfield in a very quick time. Yesterday I sent Mark out to have a look at the tunnel while I had breakfast with a girlfriend!

Clever me!

He came back ecstatic. While the Western Freeway had always fed traffic in from the Ipswich Motorway, it ended at Toowong and then one had to fight the traffic along Milton Road to join up with the Inner City Bypass to get out to the Northside. But now the tunnel is open, the drive is stress free and fast. If you use this new tunnel and then take the airport link tunnel (being careful to take the Clayfield off ramp) you will only have been through 3 sets of lights since you first entered the Ipswich motorway.

Amazing.. we have had ladies in the Boutique last Friday and again today who have used the tunnel and all 3 of them said the same thing.. so easy and so stress free.

You can read more about the tunnel here.

Tell us what you think about this tunnel next time you use it to come and see us at Spirit of Life Boutique.
