Hello friends,

Last saturday was such an incredible day. Did you guys loved as much as me? I cannot have enough of the pictures shared with #NYlon2014 tag.

I wished I could have chatted a bit more and get know everyone a bit better. What a turned out (72 peeps- counting me). To be honest, it was a bit overwhelming to host such a large group of people at first but as everyones started to settle, I relaxed into the sound of laughter, watching the smiles of instant friendliness. Something I mention on an article for the Guardian. 

Our photographer been working on the pictures and some are currently on Flickr. You can view and use them on your blogs, just make sure you mention the source. I have asked  her for a dropbox as I find it easier to distribute/see the day.
