(It is a photo of a polaroid hence the bad quality.)
Mum and I walked down 5th Avenue, browsing the high end shops. And we passed a store with a line of excited women. And then saw a man in the window, with his shirt off. And so we backtracked and had a better look.
He is an Abecrombie and Fitch model. The staff were taking polaroids of him with customers, and they let us take our own photos too. This guy is hot and lovely.
He hugged me tighter. I die.
He asked me where I am from, and we talked Sydney vs Melbourne.
He picked up my sunglasses when I dropped them.
And I stood back to have another look.
Does anyone know his name?
We were on 5th Avenue to check out where BlogHer is being held tomorrow. So excited!
I have been looking forward to BlogHer for almost one year. I cannot believe it is here. I am so passionate about blogging and I know this will be a chance to make new friends, learn new skills and promote my blog to the right people. Barack Obama will address the audience by video link. Yes! What an amazing opportunity.
The power of blogging is huge. I commented at the Appearance Matters conference that I love how it allows people to tell their own stories, and creates a more diverse mediascape.
I bang on about it a lot. But I can't be more grateful for blogging and the path it has helped me to pave. And whenever I have a conversation with people who dismiss the worth of social media, I tell them how it has helped me. I can't make a diagram, but I can use the greater than sign.
