I wore a vintage top, Natalia Brilli necklace, Yeojin Bae skirt and Repetto heels

Yesteday morning I attended the first meet up of the League of Extraordinary Women in 2013 at the exquisite Rose Cafe in Port Melbourne. I’ve wanted to go since its inception 2 years ago as Sheryl (creator of Cupcake Central), the cupcake supplier of my previous boutique, co-founded it. But work, my inability to rise early and the fact that I’m far from being ‘extraordinary’ prevented me from visiting. But as you know, I’ve been given a new lease of life this year, plus the desire to meet extraordinary female entrepreneurs propelled me to jump out of bed before sunrise, get dressed like a pink rainbow, and not forget to bring the camera. The League is a treat. We had the pleasure of hearing Crystal, of Clinical Lase speak about the startup of her business experience. It was raw. It was real. Crystal had a goal. Despite the sacrifices and scrutinies, through her strive for excellence and sheer hard work, she achieved success. I felt goosebumps as some segments of her story echoed what I’d been through with my previous boutique. Her courageous determination and daring tenacity was contagious. I know when I’ll be heading to next time I want to feel energized, inspired and motivated again. The League of Extraordinary Women meet once a month, hope to see you there one morning! Feel free to wake me up…

昨天早上我参加了今年第一个League of Extraordinary Women(译:一群杰出的商务女性)的早餐聚会。自从它二年前的开始我就想参加。那时,其中的一位创办人是原来供应我店杯形饼的创始人,Sheryl(Cupcake Central)。但工作,不能早起的我,和我并不是一位“杰出的商务女性”这个事实防止了我的参与。但你可能知道,今年我得到了新的生机,而且很想认识一些杰出的商务女性迫使了我很早就起了床,穿上了一身五颜六色,并没忘记带上我的照相机。她们的聚会好享受啊。一早,Crystal,临床激光诊所的创班人和我们分享了她的亲生经历。好真实啊。尽管有很多牺牲,审查,但通过她追求卓越的心态和勤奋的工作,她取得了成功。一边听,一边使我想起我原先开店的经历。她勇敢的决心和坚韧很有传染力。下个月我若想得到精力充沛,激励和鼓舞,你知道我会在哪里。The League of Extraordinary Women一个月聚一次,希望下个月能见到你!请随时叫我起床。。。
