Baby Shower

Baby Shower

Since I'm always up for a challenge (if it does not involve tiny mammals as we learned...) I thought adding another bit to my resume wouldn't do any harm: I organized my first baby shower. Won’t talk about the fact that being busy with the color pink for a week (btw THE color of the season ladies!) was pure pleasure: No! It was all about realizing that parties in the honor of cute little things (who have no clue) also lead to a HUGE amount of presents. Flowers, fashionable clothing (bring on the pink again!), champagne, vouchers, you name it. Not so bad right?

Which made me think: why not have a shower for every pair of innocent fresh little babies I bring to life (aka heels, aka buying them)? Imagine! I'll do birth cards, invite everybody, and my sweet ones will be accompanied by buddies to play with later (aka matching handbags, cool dresses, blinging jewellery). Hmmmmmm.

As a matter of fact, today’s babies still lack a little bit of _____________ (fill in designer of choice). There is cake left in return!

It's a Wrap…. NOT

It's a Wrap.... NOT

Suffered from a sudden bout of illness yesterday (only lasted 24 hours, but I know it's serious when I can't even think about heels, NOT ONE SINGLE SECOND!), which set me back ages in my schedule (or...ergh...24 hours). Since I can't rely on the Mayas really... when did a prediction ever became reality when you needed it to? (aka the world will end this week, aka I do not have to worry about finishing jobs or buy presents etc.) - I'm finding myself in the greatest chaos the house has seen since I moved in.

Oh, that's actually not true, since there were 100 of boxes of shoes involved back then, and the only thing I have to deal with now is wrapping (what feels like a 100) X-mas presents. Kind of a Supernova of tape, paper, glitter, cards, exploded decorations. And - other than the world disappearing on Friday this procedure has no end in sight (aka It's a wrap... NOT!). But wasn't it Nietsche who said “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”? Nicely put, Friedrich indeed, couldn't agree more.

SO. If the Mayas were right after all, there is one REALLY good thing about it: I don't have to worry about tidying up.

War and Peace

War and Peace

I know that a lot of ladies are at war with aging and would love to stop the "age clock" (aka battle against gravity and sagging). Would be no exception, were it not that I have just discovered that a fabulous B-day weekend does wonders: am glowing and grinning and radiating as though I just got back from a Spa-weekend (with a lot of Prosecco instead of tea though).

Celebrated in "Zürich" (ha, that's what the passport was for...) with all my friends (answer "A" from yesterday) and am tempted to call boyfriend "magician" from now on, as he pulled all imaginable stunts and tricks to make sure I was spoiled and pampered.

Got the most amazing presents too and all of them are perfect for my very private B-day after bash: A stuffed cat (cosy feeling), vintage champagne (no relations to age please), high heels (Paul Warmer so rules!), Dostojewsky's "Crime and Punishment" (so I can never again confuse it with Tolstoy's "War and Peace", haha!) and - well, PLEASE relate to age - reading glasses.
PurrPurr... War? Am totally at peace with everything.

Thank you everybody!
