Business and pleasure was the order of the days for Vanilla Blush founder and CEO, Nicola Dames, as she popped across the pond to New York City. 

Taking a break from business discussions, the award winning businesswoman said: "Although it was a case of intensive numbers crunching, I had to take a tour of my favourite New York sights. And as New York is one of my favourite cities, I had to visit some areas of my favourite film, Home Alone." 

The international entrepreneur concluded: "Business and pleasure went so well, I must say my New York trip was less a case of Home Alone and more a case of Stomalone!"

The Dublin-born CEO confirmed that Vanilla Blush is on target for its 2018 USA launch.
