Yesterday, I flew down to Vegas to swim up to my eyeballs in apparel. I walked Project, ENK, Slate, and the list goes on. It all starts to blend together quickly but there are always a few standouts. I.e. a great casual Men's line - where is the ladies people. Called Save or Save Khaki really caught my eye; beautiful colors, fabrics, simple lines, fab stuff. They have a store in NYC and sell all over but no website for these folks. I did manage to poach a photo of - which is GREEAATTTT if you dont know it.

Bringing out My Inner 13yo

Even though I dropped and broke a full glass jug of juice on my toe at the grocery last night. Which now leaves me with a bloody, bruised and swollen digit I am still writing to you today. See the dedication I have to you my loyal readers!!!

Yesterday while reading the NY Times this headline flashed across my eyes....Hugh R. Butt, 98, Doctor Whose Studies Helped With Blood Problems. I know its so immature and terrible to make fun of the dead but I felt like I was watching the segment on the Leno Show when he shows those silly headlines.

And then there was this line....where Dr. Butt was head of the division of gastroenterology. I know so immature Dr Butt the head of gas....ok I should stop....The entire article is here - RIP Dr Hugh Butt.

Off to Vegas be back Wed, maybe....

My American friend was arrested in China yesterday...Since I am not exactly LOVING China at the moment....Here's a photo of the current air quality in China, great for athletes. No worries, they will never see this photo from my blog - because blogs are BANNED in China. Yeah, doesn't that go along well with Coke and the Olympic spirit....please note the sarcasm.

Eton - Stronghold

Last night I went to a party above Stronghold on Abbot. If you haven't had a chance to check out this shop, I highly recommend it! Its like stepping back in time, very iconic Americana, all the brands are long standing American companies.
On to my story... in the gift bag there was a Solar-Powered, Self-Powered AM/FM/Weatherband Portable Radio with Flashlight and Cell Phone Charger by Eton. This is a great lil' gadget. Cant wait to bring it to the beach and I guess its a good thing to have on hand, should the BIG one hit LA.

Have a great weekend!!!

Gjelina v Kitchen Cafe

A new spot opened on Abbot - called Gjelina. Its good and the decor is lovely. There is no website but here's a daily candy posting

The funny thing is - while in Boulder I spend A LOT of time at the Kitchen and while Gjelina doesn't necessarily remind me of the Kitchen they have many of the same items. I mean we are talking to a tee - take the argula, sweet corn and ricotta salata salad. SAME. Pot a Creme - SAME.

Its just odd thats all....
