third world thoughts

just got back from a week long trek thru the nicaraguan and costa rican jungles with cailtin (my sis who is currently living in nicaragua). we had no cell or internet service down there as the country is truly the second poorest in central america with little to no civilized features. I wish I could do a report on the cultural fashions, however these people are just trying to survive. sad but true. I think every paris hilton, lindsay lohan and brit spears should take a trip down to these parts of our continent to catch a glimpse of what poverty is and how excessive and truly truly lucky we are to live in the u.s.a. such a luxury is taken for granted so its imperative to be reminded of our status in this world. we did end up staying in a little piece of heaven called the panacea de la montana in the mountains of playa tamarindo in costa rica. we had an unbelievable time at the yoga retreat and hope to go back again and again. I was thankful to be in such a place on thanksgiving which in turn shed light on my many thanks for my lovely life. asta la

sit ubu sit. good dog.

if you love your dog, check out fifi & romeo. this beverly shop is some chic shopping for your furry pup.

chic boutique

last night I attended the opening of the new malgosia boutique on beverly. kari feinstein was heading up the bash and as anyone knows, if kari is throwing the party it is a party you want to be at. they have some really cute jeans and fab meghan pieces. lots of pretty things to look at a really cute store to boot! thay have those too.

sample platter

monday's daily candy was a listing of several sample sales all happening this week, so I figured why not throw some money towards some good causes and pick up some hot half-priced haute. I just got back from sample angel. it was in the area so very convenient to walk to. they had some great catherine malandrino there including a tiffany blue trench that was still too much for my money's worth but pretty all the same. sanaa lathan was there from nip/tuck sans her kidney cutting tools. I walked away with a fab pair of golddigger james jeans for $95. regularly priced at $200. so that was a steal and felt good for a good cause too!

does this hamburger make me look fat?

as I've mentioned before, I am big fan of the sunday new york times. this week's style magazine section is *to quote david* the bomb. its all about food and style which if you think about it, is an art form filled with rich colors that stimulate all of your senses. I especially liked the section on celebrity photog and creator of wireimage, jeff vespa's muse du jour, L.A. hamburgers. I wish a hamburger was in my diet. Im currently on the zone which is fab and great and working but tough when I have visions of pinkberry dancing in me head.

david on howard stern

I am a serious sirius fan. david hooked up my ride with a whole sirius set up making it easy for me to be absolutely addicted to howard stern, of whom I've been a long time fan. turns out david used to be part of the wack pack as the king of all song parodies!? he made his triumphant return to the show yesterday when howard big upped david's blog, the digital couch on the show. david does reviews of the television shows he so loves and loathes and gave the gary roast an A+ which howard mentioned on the air. it was so funny to hear unexpected and out of the blue and a huge boost to my man's ego that the king of all media is up on his stuff.


sometimes you have to take a vacation from your vacation, ya know? that's what I've been doing. keeping it underground. on the DL. get all howard hughes like. david and I got back from a week in maui, hawaii which was awesome. we snorkeled with tropical fish, ate luau pig and poi, listened to IZ and jumped off waterfalls. david even swam in the ocean at night. hawaii is truly an eco-paradise. mahalo.

no need to leave, google it here
