My first week of the new year has been exhausting already. But I’m happy. Starting a new year always makes me feel like you get one more chance to clean up your life and try to pass the goals you reached and the goals you didn’t reach in the previous year. I had a wonderful Christmas break in Detroit with my family and spent New Years in Chicago. There was quite a bit of shopping and lots of great food. My favorite gift was the HP Express Card TV Tuner – It allows me to use the “new” laptop that I love so much and watch or record cable TV shows to watch later. The girls and I went back to Brio Tuscan Grill (the same place from New Years Eve 2006) and had a wonderful meal. Some of us were able to get a picture with the chef afterwards…
…I also got a cute, soft gray wool skirt by a little known NY designer Neil Sperling which I wore as a dress over a BCBG tee. I got the skirt from OUEST (pronounced West) – a cool boutique in the West Loop area. It turned out to be such a cute outfit, topped off with the New Lancome Color Fever Lipstick in Rock Icon Fuchsia. I saw a pick of a girl in Glamour wearing this super bright pink and had to have it. I left my camera so there are no picks of me but here is the model on the Lancome site wearing the same color. BRIGHT!
During the trip to Chicago we went to my favorite breakfast place, Le Peep, and I found a new dinner/drinks spot – Salud Tequila Lounge. The atmosphere was great and the guacamole was to do for. We went there twice and both times got the guacamole sampler (with regular, chunky and fruit guacamole) and the fresh lobster tacos! This was my first time doing tequila shots and while I kept the guacamole down, lets just say I’m done with tequila already. Here is a pic of the guacamole before I destroyed it.
On to the item of the day… I saw this super-hot boot in the window of Neiman Marcus and wanted it. It will probably hurt my feet… heck, my ankles and calves too. But it would be so WORTH IT!
Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
