My new Years Resolution

It took a while to think of a realistic resolution.
Without the time or $$$ for a trainer, chef and posh gym the whole lose 20lbs thing tomorrow isn't going to happen.
But according to what I've read recently my beloved coca cola may be the cause of my stubborn weight gain. In theory no coke for one year can lead to a loss of 12lbs!
No coke is also a fantasy- I'm addicted.
But I think I may be able to manage one can of coca cola a week. I had my one can last night. Delish.
Is it hard?
Oh god yes.
But when I fit into my clothing and my addiction weens it will be worth it.

I had a dream!

Part of preparing for fashion week is not having a day off (weekends included) since December. It wasn't so bad at first but it's starting to wear on me.... but then came MLK's birthday! All hail the king! In honor of this great man I intend to "have a dream" all day. Do not call. I will be sleeping. VERY VERY soundly.

The End.

I broke up with my boyfriend- feeling both blue and resigned that I did the right thing

seiji no hi (the coming of age festival)

Seiji no hi is celebrated on the second Monday of January (it used to be celebrated always on January 15 until the year 1999). All young people who turn twenty years old in that year are celebrated as this is the age considered as the beginning of adulthood. It is a national holiday in Japan- even Ralph Lauren employees have the day off!

Aruba Pics

We ordered nachos with jalapenos and cheese and they brought us DORITOS! It would have been less insulting if they left them in the bag!
We went on a boat trip and saw a sunken Nazi warship

"Nana korobi yaoki" which translates roughly as "if you fall down seven times get up eight"

Happy New year!! It's 2007, and I'm at a loss for what to say. I just got back from Aruba (as you can see in the pics) and was treated to an unbelievable holiday surprize. Straight from Japan from Tim-San a brand new DARUMA! I've been wanting one almost as badly as I've been wanting a lucky cat. He also sent me badass warthog stickers (perhaps because it's the year of the pig) and some yummy mushroom and Hello Kitty candy.

I spent New Years with my bestfriend Rachel. We got drunk... I mean stinking drunk, watching "The History of Sex" on the History channel. Some vodka, cider, proseco and champagne later I was seriously regretting our choice of extra hot salsa and chips. Still a great time!
