book review: Learning to Fly
Okay, everyone laughed at me if I dared share with them that I was reading Victoria Beckham’s autobiography. Completely understood. She was Posh Spice and now she runs around wearing ridiculous outfits to her sons’ soccer games (I’m sorry, football matches). It sounds frivolous and silly (and yes, it is), but let me tell you that I did learna few interesting things after...

new food week update
I accidentally had very faux kiwi faux ice cream in the city on Thursday. I still don’t know what it tasted like, but that flavor was not at all like my favorite furry green New Zealand fruit. But eh, it was free. The girl on the street giving away the coupons was awesome at her job, so I had to humor her and try it out. I also went to the yuppiest of boutique-y grocery stores, Garden...
finally went to the Upright Citizens Brigade on a Sunday night included Horatio Sanz (who we barely recognized, and doubted ourselves even when we did recognize him), some other dude who apparently was on SNL for the first time this weekend, a guy from Best Week Ever, and, most impressively, the guy from the Twix commercial (you know, where he invites the girl at the party back to his place to...
new food week!
item #1 - Chipotle burrito strange that I’ve never had Chipotle, especially given its presence in CP, but much stranger that I really don’t think I’ve ever had a burrito a little cilantro-heavy for my tastebuds, but luckily I had a 3/4 Diet Coke, 1/4 Mr. Pibb to wash it down

since you are in “fashion school” and all, but seriously LC? I’m sorry, but besides being on a quasi-scripted reality show, your credentials to be an author are severely lacking. Drawn-out, intense looks do not a book write.
She shut it down.– Rachel Zoe (who I surprisingly didn’t dislike as I’d expected) I think this is a Bravo-initiated catchphrase I can get behind. Sorry Blayne, you were trying way too hard with that “girlicious” business.

beer review: Honey Moon
If you’re like me, you find a nice Blue Moon, accessorized with a little orange slice, a lovely selection while out for a beverage. So, when the occasion arises where you find yourself with a new, but similar option - Honey Moon - and, after being amused by the clever name (I’m hoping it will take you far less time than it took me to register the ingeniousness), you decide to give it...
