fashion's night out to be repeated in 2010

WWD just announced Anna Wintour's brain child, Fashion's Night Out, will be repeated in 2010!  It's no surprise the global fashion event that revitalized the retail industry is due to make an encore performance.  However, I would've preferred it to be in the near future.  Say, in February?  Right before F/W New York Fashion Week?

Tomorrow, Mayor Bloomberg, Vogue, the CFDA and NYC & Co. are expected to reveal details of the event scheduled for Sept. 9th, 2010.  We can expect next year's to be even bigger and better!

"The numbers are in, and it's clear that Fashion's Night Out was a tremendous success,"  Bloomberg said.  "Thousands of New Yorkers attended the events in all five boroughs, supporting the city's retail and fashion industries, and helping a worthwhile cause.  It's sure to be an even bigger event in 2010." (WWD)

This year, I had a chance to stop by Barneys, Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana.  Unfortunately, my assistant salary kept me from actually making a purchase, but who wouldn't have a wonderful time surrounded by beautiful clothing, champagne, live music and familiar faces?!

I'm looking forward to next year!

I do my best work hungover. I have less brain cells to confuse the issue.

sweet million is sweeter than sweet!! - UPDATE

I just saw the commercial.

oooooooh adorableness!


sweet million is sweeter than sweet!!

I spend a lot of time planning my life as a future lottery winner. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when... mainly being when I finally get around to buying tickets. :/

I depend on friends/family and ads to remind me to buy tickets, although neither has proven to be very effective. With me, a lot of times things go in one ear and out the other.

That being said, the ads for New York Lotto's latest game, Sweet Million, are EXTREMELY hard to forget.

Telling me I can win a million dollars is one thing, using kittens and puppies to tell me I can win a million dollars... now that's a way to get a girl to pay attention!

*Ads have not led to an increase (...or initial) purchase of Sweet Million tickets on my part.
**Ads have led to an insane desire to own, cuddle, play with, steal and just love on kittens, puppies, bunnies, etc.

i kid! i kid!

So my last post, over two months ago, was obviously a lie. Most of you know me well enough to know that I'm a slacker. I procrastinate like it's my job.

I'm not going to say I'm back this time, because it could very well turn out to be another lie, and I'm done giving false hope to all two of my followers.
