Latch “slams” down in NYC

I've just returned from America, where I met some of Weston Body Hardware's distributors and had the chance to do some sightseeing around New York City. With the first stop being the Empire State and my slight aversion to heights, it was the first challenge of the day, but the view was worth it! Followed by the Rockefeller Center and Statue of Liberty I really have experienced some of the highlights of New York.

FAO Schwarz was my personal favourite, where I made some American friends (literally!) at the toy workshop. After one tiring day, I jumped on the subway and headed back to the hotel to get changed. I couldn't visit New York, without going to Broadway and seeing a show! Of course, I went to see Mary Poppins as I can relate to a lot of the toys in the show, one day I could be on that stage?! Or not...

Back in sunny * cough * England now, but who knows where my next journey will take me...?

Romance in Paris


I've just returned from a fabulous trip to Paris and I have some news... I've been keeping it quiet for a while but I think it's about time I tell you all...I have a girlfriend, her name is Catch and well she really is quite the catch!

As they say Paris is the most romantic city in the world and I have to agree. Whilst in Paris we enjoyed a candlelit dinner for two beneath the Eiffel Tower (although I'll have to admit I wasn't brave enough to try the snails!) and then we took a romantic walk along the Seine. We also visited Notre Dame and admired the beautiful architecture before heading over to the Louvre to check out the artwork.

Whilst we were there Paris Fashion Week was in full swing and I must say everyone looked very stylish. Thanks to some of my high up contacts we managed to get front row tickets to one of the top designer catwalks which was great fun. I'm definitely going to be the best dressed teddy in town after this!

Aurevoir mon amies!
