Trend Alert: Moroccan Madness

Prediction: with much of SATC2 set in Abu Dhabi in the U.A.E. (but filmed in Morocco), Middle Eastern fashion trends are going to be all over the place this summer. As with the first film (and the previous 6 seasons of shows), certain items become the rage and gals from Staten Island to San Diego start adopting their own versions of the signature looks: the "Carrie" necklace, big belts, heaps of pearls, poofy skirts. I would imagine that most of the predominant fashion trends of the 2000s can ultimately be traced back to the one and only Carrie Bradshaw.

Flowers for Friday

I haven't gone out to buy my usual Friday flowers quite yet this morning. Instead, I am dreaming of this flower store I spotted in Florence in 2007.

While all the other touristas were flocking en masse towards the Duomo, I paused a moment to snap this photo of something more quotidian: a sidewalk in bloom.

The Barter System

Sometimes I barter with myself. Self, if you go for a thirty-minute run, you will be amply rewarded with a pedicure. Does any one else play these mind-games?
Why can't the post-workout endorphins be enough for me?
