I’M STILL ALIVE!!! Okay, so I’ve been meaning to post more consistently here for the past 6 months but obviously… that ever happened :( WHERE IN THE WORLD DID I GO? Well for starters, I spent January-May in London where i studied abroad and it was the most amazing educational experience. for one, i got to be away from crappy ithaca where i’m more sad than anything else. seriously, study abroad because it’s hard to come upon another chance to actually LIVE in a foreign country. Visiting is a different experience. When you live in a place and have a home to go to, it’s so much different than returning to a hostel or hotel room. Trust me, during Spring Break in italy, I was dying to return to london and take a proper shower.
okay, i should shut up about europe and save it for future flashback posts that i PLAN on making. because you know, i’m so lazy.
this photo was 2 days ago when i had originally planned on going to see Sex and the CIty 2 but thanks to the lovely MTA system and its delays, I decided to watch it another day and roam around my favorite place duh: Soho. My friend and i got tired so the perfect solution was to try out Cafe Gitane. Can’t tell you much about the food because I ordered a fruit salad. I KNOW, WAY TO GO JO! i was trying to “eat healthy” but that was sabotaged when i went home and ate a dinner enough to feed my family. Seriously, my weight woes have never been worse. I gained 10 lbs whilst in europe (most of it thanks to italy) and gained 2 back home. fatness must stop. i’ve become those annoying people that takes 50 snapshots just to be satisfied with one AAAH! nothing really fits anymore and if i am not a good girl this week which i BETTER BE, this skirt will not see the light of day until my ever expanding waistline shrinks.
back to cafe gitane, i’m sorta obsessed with olivia palermo’s style and so i read that she recommended the place and i saw a photograph of her sitting outside on the blue table so i knew i had to try the place out. 5 minutes after we sat down, KATE HUDSON and RACHEL ZOE walk in and are seated a table away. no wonder there was a no cellphone sign on the menu: celebrity sightings. anyways i was upset that i couldn’t even take a pic of my food since they’d think i was trying to get a pic of kate and rachel.
