A Model I'm Not

I am glad I don't model for a living. If I do, I would really suck at it. I only have a single pose -- one hand on the hips (two if I'm having a particularly nice day), one leg forward and slightly bent and face tilted to the side. I only have a single smile -- the BIG kind with as many teeth I could possibly show.

The whole process is almost part of my muscle memory now -- I can invoke it on a whim the very instant I see a camera!

So to change things up a bit, let's try this sitting down.

Yes, yes, I know! I should not give up my daytime job anytime soon.
Fine! :P

Orange You Glad?

The title's a bit cheesy, I know -- but I can't think of anything else to write. It was the first thing that came out of my head seeing my orange top on this pic. :D

-- Free People orange halter top -- white shorts from Australia -- Stuart Weitzman cream wedges --

I am indeed glad that I got this top for a mere $12. And I am also glad for the cool summer weekends here in Minneapolis - a welcoming break from the heat in Dallas during the weekdays. And I'm glad we have great set of friends to enjoy the summer with -- shopping, jogging, working out, grilling and eating out!

A big shoutout to my dear friend Faye, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

A Tale of Friendship

Good friends remain as friends no matter where they are in world.

Allow me to attempt to explain this in a story that will span four continents, three people and six years of friendship: Last weekend, a good Aussie friend of ours whom we met in Melbourne, and is now working in London for a company that is based in Minneapolis was in town for the weekend. We tried to meet up a few times last year but since I spent a lot of my time in Brazil, we couldn't. Tried to meet up again a few times this year but since I'm in Dallas during the workweek, matching our travel schedules was tricky. Until finally last weekend, we did!

He's a fellow foodie and travel junkie and he could talk about hole-in the-wall places in Makarska (Makarska where??) to three-star Michelins in Paris! A well traveled foodie seems a bit hard to impress but we took him to Restaurant Alma and surely, the pride of Minneapolis did not disappoint. Review coming up shortly!
