So those of you who know me will know that i do love my shoes ! I got delivery this weekend of a very special pair !. These new pretty High tops are totally impractical , but I fell head over heels for them !! They are the result of a collaboration between Nike and my Favorite shop in London LIBERTY …. Liberty’s fabrics are so dainty and girly and Nike high tops are usually the opposite so i love this combination. They have said they are only doing a small exclusive run of each fabric type so i was very lucky to get my hands on a pair , But with the run away success they have had I am pretty sure they will keep making more to try and keep up with the demand . You have to make Hay when the sun shines they would be silly not to and with products as pretty as these it would be wrong not to share ;0)
What a week . I have been blown away by the kindness of the Listeners to George Lees Radio show The Business last Saturday . I was interviewed for his show as a local business lady as I am from Athlone and he was doing his show from there . I just told my story about how Button Studio came about . Since Saturday my poor post man has been very busy delivering amazing parcels of buttons ! The kind listeners from George’s show have been sending me all their buttons :0) . I have received lovely letters from people wishing me well and people getting inspiration from my little story which i think is fantastic . Support like that is like a BUTTON it holds small local , Irish company’s together.. So if you are one of the kind people who have been in touch this week thank you so much .
What a great afternoon . We had a wonderful Boat trip on Athlone’s Viking boat with Presenter for Rte Business show George Lee . Mick (viking man !), Anthony Mannion from Ciaran Mannion& Sons Wholesale Confectionery company and me Button Girl where all interviewed as local business people from Athlone. The Weather held and we where all well looked after on board.George Was very nice and made talking to him very easy . He is pictured above with a pair of Button Studios Cuff-links that i gave him as a gift. He left with a cheeky smile promising to try and wear them on the telly ! ;0) If you would like to hear what we talked about tune into Rte radio this Saturday 7th May @ 10am .
