I am totally into Buddhist ways of life and doctrines like zen and feng shui and karma. Mostly karma though because although I have had my fair share of feng shui panic attacks and have signed up for mediation classes to increase my zen, the idea of karma makes so much sense to me. It’s completely a fair way to look at things. Except for when you give your aunt a Missoni throw pillow and then in return she gives you a ten dollar iTunes giftcard, usually when I do something nice for someone it is returned.
My friend ‘Miranda'(as most of you know because of an article she wrote on this blog) is a interior designer and sometimes exterior. She needed me to tag along and go to some new antique stores that she had heard about. I really did not want to go because I have barely any money left in my account and I am thinking about cheaking myself in a rehab for a substance abuse problem of mine. That is of clothing. I have bought more than three thousand dollars of clothing in the last three days. Not good. Anyway, I ended up going with her and I ran into another great friend and we ended up having an amazing time and not only that, I found a priceless vintage wedding ring on a necklace for only twenty dollars! It’s gorgeous. Perfectly cut and everything and the band is actually the most beautiful band I have ever seen. So there you go karma lives on daily!
Usually when I do something selfless I end up getting something back wheither that is just having fun or finding a great deal. Next week I am taking in a roommate because my good friend broke up with ehr boyfriend and her place is also his place sine they rent it together. He said he’s keeping it and now she has to find a place. I hate when that happens, it’s like don’t these girls have any say too? Anyway I am so happy to be taking her in but I am also hoping this will increase my karma.
In the most recent poll, most people asked for a update in my relationship with Mr. Right. As Carrie said that her relationship with Mr. Big was ‘bigger than big’, my relationship is now more right than right. Mr. Right does everything right but he isn’t a total gentlemen either. I hate when guys do everything for you and treat you like a princess. I mean I love it every once in a while but I couldn’t be in a relationship with someone like that. I like the bad boys. Mr. Right isn’t a bad boy though; he is just the opposite but he still gets on my nerves some times and ignores me sometimes which in a really odd way makes me like him more. Am I alone on this?
Anyway, my relationship with him has been everything I wanted. Our few bumps in the road have just made everything between us better. We are planning on spending Christmas seperated because I am not at all about to introduce a boy to the family but we are having a Christmas Eve lunch which will be nice. I always find it so much easier to shop for men than girls. For guys, just go to an electronic store or a sports store and get something you know he’ll like but with girls it has to get personal.
Mr. Right is possibly the greatest boyfriend I’ve ever had but really how could I compare them all since they are all so different. I don’t think I have a type when it comes to guys I actually date but the guys I lust over are always tall, dark, and handsome and usually in a band 😛
Have a great Christmas and if any of you need help for a Christmas gift, comment and I promise to respond with an idea! xoxo – A Vogue Idea
In Sex and the City, the girls barely fight so what I’m about to say to so un-Sex and the City that is scares me. I am in a herted arguement, alright a fight, with “Samantha.” It started because of her man because as we all know , men start all fights. But as we also know, men should neevr come bewteen a friendship, and it didn’t. What came between Samantha and my relationship is her, in my opinion of course. So let me start from the beginning to help explain our situation better. We (meaning “Miranda”, “Charlotte”, and I) had all planned a big party for “Samantha” and we invited over a hundred people over to “Miranda”‘s hosue, since her’s is the biggest. We had put a lot of money and effort into this and then “Samantha” told us that she couldn’t come to her party anymore because her boyfriend, whose an executive for the Super Bowl advertisment and such. I mean she totally blew off this huge party for him. At that point, I admit I was pissed but it didn’t seem like anyone else was since they were so happy she had finally settled down with someone even though he is twenty years older than her. When she got back she was a different person to me. She was trying so hard to fit this mold that she thought was how a girl in love should act but it was no longer her. So when I approched her to tell her this, she freaked.
She’s become a different person to me and “Charlotte” and “Miranda” would agree. Another reason our relationship is being stressed is that I’m becoming closer to my friend that I met through acting and she knows “Samantha” from when she was doing advertising as well as commericals. My friend is the type that is only can really be described as she is really sweet, outgoing and hilarious, but if she doesn’t like you, you live in hell. She’s like Regina George from Mean Girls or the Molly Ringwald character, from The Breakfast Club or Cher in Clueless. A total bitch when she wants to be. And because “Samantha” was acting like a nuisance that day and a poser, she was a bitch to “Samantha”, of course only after “Samantha” had paid her for the commerical. So, “Samantha” has become ever intimidated by my friend and my friend has, in turn, disliked “Samantha”.
So does this mean that our group of friends is no longer the Fab Four and might become the Terrefic Three? This makes me wonder: why would a friendships end because of one bad time when there were so many bad times?
ps. Please comment with names we can call my new friend. She’s really hyper and loads of fun. Any Sex and the City reference is great but also another nickname would be great!
I have found my own “Mr. Big” and of course I am talking about Mr. Right then Mr. Wrong and then Mr. I-have-no-idea. But he is now I know he is my Mr. Positively, Absloutely, Most definitely Right. At least right now. But I still love being a single gal and being able to go out with my friends without thinking ‘Oh wait! Mr. Right might be interested in going to that new exbihit or new restaurant that’s opening instead…’ I also love being able to think for myself. Of course, I also love having a man. I think my favorite thing about being in a relationship, except for the guy obviously, is just lying next to that person right before I go to bed. It’s not like anything else when you slip in that nook under his arm and lie there while he reads the Times.
My Mr. Big is positively the most romantic man ever. He is definitely the most polite man I’ve ever dated. I love being with him so much that I want to be with him all the time. I think although we have been dating for two months about that it is time to start making room for a drawer at his place. You know, a place to put some clothes in case I sleepover spontaneously or something. As of now, the clothes on my back are the only clothes I go home in. Well, of course the pair of jeans I stole from him is an exception, might I add that these jeans are so cute cuffed with ankle boots! I go home early every morning looking like a high-priced hooker and of course, this needs to stop. So, my question to you is this: When should my little nook in his arm become a little nook in his closet?
Today is a momumental day for my friends and me. Today we are all with one guy and one guy only. My friend “Charlotte”, the one with the blog New Yorke Cherie, has the most wonderful boyfriend for about seven months. My other friend “Miranda” is in the Hamptons to decorate a multi-million dollar house all while dating her personal assistant. How cliché. “Samantha” has had many relationships but only a few serious. She’s recently been working on the press for the Superbowl and has fallen for one of the Superbowl execs. If you knew her like I do you owuld realize why this is such a big deal because she usually falls for the one-night stand sort-of guys like bartenders and male models. So, now we are all happily in relationships. We are now all planning a dinner with all of our boys and us. It’ll be awkward but very fun to meet everyone. I’ve only met “Charlotte”‘s boyfriend and not “Miranda” or “Samantha”.
Today “Samatha” said to me on the phone that she had found ‘the one’ but before she was certain I had to meet him. Then I had a thought. Why do women need their friends advice and guidance before they can make an important choice? I can not be judgemental though because I know that before I buy anything over three hundred dollars I need my friend to come and watch me try things on. Can women not function without their friends’ input?
p.s. My friends have agreed to guest write a blog so if anyone is interested in hearing more about their relationships, jobs, or anything really just comment or email me.
I know I have written in ages but its fashion week and I’ve been super busy with everything like fittings, rehearsals, and the shows. But I have finally found time to sit down at my computer and write a bit. Oh and I know I forgot to update you on the US Open. It was so much fun and I sat right next to a few famous celebrities like a team member on the New York Giants and Kelsey Grammar.
I have also had a bit of a drought myself in two ways. Firstly my boyfriend Mr. Right’s grandfather’s brother-in-law’s aunt died and he used that as an excuse to fly to England for the funeral. He’s pretty close to his grandfather so I think he wanted Mr. Right there. But, I want Mr. Right here! At least he will be back soon.
Secondly, my computer has been having lots of problems for the past year so I borrowed my friend’s sister’s friend’s old one. I know, that seems really odd but the thing is my friend’s sister’s friend gave it to my friend’s sister and my friend’s sister gave it to my friend and my friend gave it to me. Basically, no one was in need of computer but I was. So anyway there is a reason for this confusing story. I sent some emails using the Mail application on the Mac but when I did that it sent using the original owners name but I thought that the name that was sent was my own. Most emails I sent I used by sending on the internet and those all worked correctly. The only reason I want to say all this is I am sure that no one knows my real identity but I was thinking and I decided to make things a bit less confusing I would go out and saw it. My name is Meg. There you have it. I’ve gone almost three months without telling you guys but I feel like now I need to because I don’t want any of you thinking I’m someone that I’m not. As some of you know, I’ve done bits and pieces of acting here and there but mostly just modeling.
On another note, make sure to see Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist! It looks great and one of my besties is in it!
I don’t mean basketball or baseball or volleyball. I mean tennis. Through a few friends, namely my “Miranda” friend, I got a premiere box seat at the US Open. My friend (“Miranda”) is going to go with me and our seats are together so it’ll be super fun. Her family is also going. I usually go every year but this year will be special because I’m going with my boyfriend. Yes, I did say boyfriend. Who is he who may ask? Drumroll please! Mr. Right who turned out to be Mr. Wrong is now officially Mr. Right. He called me in the middle of the night last night to ask if he could come over. I agreed, half because I just wanted to put the phone down and get some z’s. But then he showed up with flowers and told me he couldn’t stop thinking about me! He said that everything happens for a reason and us breaking up showed him that we were really meant for each other. Isn’t that just the sweetest thing ever?
Anyway after a few hours of talking I finally went to bed and then when I found out I actually had the tickets I immediately invited him because I want to see if “Miranda” and him will get along. Fingers crossed.
I am so excited for the US Open though! So many celebrities have been photographed there this week! Hopefully I will get to sit next to Johnny Depp on one side and Brad Pitt on the other side. Now wouldn’t that be splendid? The celebrities that actually have been seen there include Anna Wintour, the goddess herself, Christie Brinkley, and those gorgeous pageant girls, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe.

Christie Brinkley in a flattering, white summer dress and an adorable fedora.

It’s gonna be lots of fun and I’ll tell you about it afterwards. By the way, thanks for all the emails. I really enjoy reading all of your feedback and fashion questions. Keep them coming!!
