Back in the day, my bestie and I used to get together on Saturdays and do the town. Which always meant the following:
- lunch at NK (I always have the chèvre chaud, she always has the shrimp sallad. We used to have a glass of wine, now we gulp diet coke and cappuccinos to make up for lost sleep)
- perfume shopping (Ann is always on the hunt for the perfect scent)
- shoe shopping
- other shopping
- drinks on the way home
- dinner at home – sombreros and wine, a salad, and then candy (mostly for her) and ice cream (B&J for me, Haagen Dazs for her)
- Hitch (yes – we always watched the same movie)
A couple of weeks ago, after hardly having seen eachother for weeks or months, we got together for a Saturday on the town. Just like old times. Except that neither of us was drinking, I had baby Léonie with me, we were both pretty tired, and both of us had realized that we didn’t need any more shoes.
Never ever did I ever think I would ever not need new shoes. But that’s what’s become of us. Instead we browsed foundations brushes, armchairs and children’s books. And bought earrings! I’ve lost all my small ones, and I don’t like wearing danglies when I’ve got little Léonie constantly in my arms – she is really in that grabby phase right now and she is really strong! So I was looking for small pretty earrings that I could put in and just not take out for a while. I was so happy when I came across these teeny tiny little gold hearts. They’re really small and I think they’re lovely for everyday. I’ve been wearing them for two weeks straight now and love them!
Also – what I want for Christmas (this list isn’t even for this year but it still stands!)
