Sweet-Talk 3

Candy - Sweet-Talk 3
Surprisingly clear headed after the great night last night where I learnt:

1. To become a great designer you need the force, skills and a talented music mate. (I will now take to hanging out in the guitar section of Waltons).
2. Said mate will then owe you a soundtrack when you finally get round to making that film you have been annoying everyone with for years.
3. Alcohol is best served by a tall blonde in a blue cocktail dress.

Brilliant turnout of about 300. Well done to all involved.

Keep an eye out for future SweetTalk's //
