The city girls had a soulmate day and did everything from shopping to eating to laughing hysterically all day-one of the reasons we laughed all day was because of a movie we saw...The Ugly Truth. Personally, I find movies or t.v. shows funny, however I hardly ever laugh out loud. But there was this one scene in this movie, that had me cursing, and crying, and laughing hysterically. In this scene Katherine Heigl's character puts on a pair of vibrating panties to learn how to "please herself." She slips them on before going out, doesn't have time to take them off, and then she gets bamboozled into going to a dinner with all of her bosses, and the remote for the panties gets into the hands of a kid. NOTHING is funnier than watching a woman having an orgasm at a really inappropriate time.
It's even funnier in the movie, because the scene lasts much longer. But I highly recommend this film, besides being hilarious, it's pretty cute.
...So who wants to make me a happy woman?The Christie's Jewels: The New York Sale to be held on October 21 will feature the Annenberg Diamond, a square 32.01-carat, emerald-cut diamond graded D color, flawless, the rarest of the rare. The Annenberg diamond is flanked by two pear-shaped diamonds, of 1.5 carats and 1.61 carats, respectively mounted in a ring by David Webb. It is part of the Leonore Annenberg collection. The ring has an estimated value between $3 million to $5 million.

I have it in Charcoal and Black, and I have to admit, this sweater might be one of the top 3 things I can't live without.

In addition to the previous post, I wanted to point out a few things about the Barney's Warehouse Sale...
By all means it is a great sale: prices are slashed, designer duds are to be had, and there's even a circulating shuttle that will pick your ass up from the very end of the parking lot! BUT...
do not go there thinking it will be a designer all you can find buffet. There are huge markdowns, but the majority of these mondo sized discounts, are only prevalent on the very most expensive designer shoes, bags, clothes etc. So yes you can get Louboutins for 1/2 off, the $1500 dollar pair that is. As for the $200 dollar Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater? ...You'll find more like 20% off. Not such a biggie huh? All in all it was pure mayhem, no dressing rooms, and the racks are endless....I'm still at odds deciding whether it is really that great of a sale. It was perhaps the most chaotic sale I've ever attended, and the fruits of labor don't seem so abundant. I can see how some may really love this event, and how some may hate it. Our second chance at love with Barney's Warehouse Sale awaits on the horizon, and we shall proceed.
Well, the city girls made a visit to The Herbst Pavillion @ Fort Mason for the Barney's Warehouse sale. It was the first time this sale has taken place in San Francisco and we were absolutely stoked. However we got there and felt that the prices were still a little too high. We will be going back on the last day, because we heard a rumor from our inside sources that there will be new items put on the floor, and prices will severely drop...
*pardon the shitty quality of the videos, they were taken from my phone.

White and black.
Just like the colors of my favorite photo.
His fingers glide across them like a child skating on an ice rink.
The sound of his gliding, is equivalent to my heartbeat.
It starts slow, and quickly speeds.
With each note, I gasp for air.
I do not know the song he is playing,
Nor do I wish to know.
But whatever song it is,
I could sing to for eternity.
Before this man sat down, I did not know the depths of his soul,
But now I see him as a man with quintessence.
He plays the song that is me.
He is my melody.
He is my beat…
For he knows what song my heart sings.
