Long time, no TiLT!

heart2 Coffee. I drank an unprecedented amount of coffee this week. It has been my savior for two weeks; had it not been for my morning/evening cups of coffee (I know it’s quite bad), I doubt I would have made it through this week at all. Thank goodness for caffeine! 

heart2 Guys & Dolls. One of my favorite musicals and roles of all time. Incredibly, incredibly fun. And to think; two months of work everyday and night only to have it all over in a matter of three days and four shows? It’s quite bittersweet – I miss doing the numbers, but it has been a great relief knowing that I have one less thing to do. And it was so lovely getting so many flowers and chocolate after the show – thank you to those who attended! 

heart2 Boys who can sing like Frank Sinatra & Michael Buble. Oh there was one, younger, sadly, who played the lead in Guys & Dolls. If you do happen to read this, and are older than I, feel free to email me. We’ll meet over coffee, and I’d gladly marry you in a heartbeat. 

heart2  tFs. Thoroughly and completely addicted to the forums. Particularly the ones on: Melanie Huynh, Carine Roitfeld, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, and Emmanuelle Alt. Oh, and anything related to/about French Vogue.

heart2 Poring through blogs like Jak & Jil Blog, Fashion Squad, Fashion Toast, Swank Heights, Knighttcat, etc. for inspiration. It’s quite self-explanatory. Love it. 

heart2 Irish Soda Bread. I’ve had ridiculous amounts of it for the past two weeks as a precursor to St. Patrick’s Day. And a celebratory snacking food during the holiday, and after it. I’m a carb addict, I know. Especially when it’s sugared with raisins inside. Absolutely delicious with a cup of hot coffee. The perfect combination!

heart2 Nadia of For sending over the most beautiful piece of jewelry, ever! I am so grateful. 

Oh! And the ever sweet Mzz Linhh passed on a tag/award. Thank you so much, darling!

    Coffee is not that bad… I mean, I use to drink it all the time ( but only ristretto, I can’t stand a coffee higher than… 1 cm ? ) through the day, morning, late morning, after dinner, etc. etc. etc. !!!

    Maybe I shouldn’t… ? ^^

    Really nice points anyway !

    Guys & Dolls was just showing here in my town! That’s so funny. Where are you from?

    What a great list! Are you going to have the Guys & Dolls choreography committed to muscle memory for weeks afterward now? I did a salsa performance 3 years ago and I can still remember the first 56 counts of choreography whenever I hear ‘Cuba Havana’ by Buena Vista Social Club playing.

    Soda bread ROCKS my world. Unfortunately, since I don’t go to Catholic school anymore, my supply has been cut off. 😥

    Mrs. Roitfeld is so addictive! Once you see her, you want to be part of her, know everything about her, live like she does…even if it’s sometimes hard, I’m sure it is a pleasure to work with/for her.
