Dear Readers,

I am so sorry in my delay in posts. I have been blogging on another site called HauteVue: Life & Style Blog [which was also noted earlier in a post].

However, my life has been in turmoil lately. My father recently passed away a month ago, I was an emotional mess and now, I’m getting crucified by certain people because of my personal opinions. As a blogger, I have the right to stay anonymous and entitled to free speech. If you believe I am slandering you in anyway shape or form then send me an email and ask for it to be removed. (this is also why I have posted a disclosure policy on this blog as well). My contact information is stated in the Contact section. Don’t try to be slick and post a comment thinking, it’s directly going to be posted on my blog publicly without any knowledge. I do moderate my comments since I have to determine if it is spam or not.

Also another interesting fact that you all need to know is that your IP address / Mobile IP address is tagged into the comments section. If it is a threat, I can definitely forward this to the police or FBI to track you down. Am I scared? No, I’m just amazed that this person would have the decency to even think twice.

I will not be releasing anymore details but from myself to you, lets just say that you have been warned. That’s all.

P.S. *updated 10:08pm as of April 28th, 2010* I do read my daily stats, where my clicks are coming from and etc. Just think twice or even three times about what you are doing.

who is not another stupid blogger

Tonight I had the utmost pleasure of attending the most exclusive event, hosted at Neiman Marcus for the Cartier Cocktail Presentation and Preview of their most exclusive items of Cartier. However, I was appalled by many people’s fashionable choices [so to speak].

The event began with champagne that was flown out from Paris which was exclusively from Cartier’s wine cellar. Most of you wine geeks, may or may have not even heard of Cartier Champagne before but I must tell you that it is very good. From their exquisite champagne and hors d’oeuvres from Chef Matthew of Neiman Marcus Mariposa, I have to say the downside of my experience was fashion choices of the guest.

As a fashionista/socialite point-of-view, I was extremely disgusted. Guests wear either carrying faux designer bags to worst choices of clothing. I don’t know where these people came from but they weren’t from Seattle or Bellevue. Never in a million years, have I ever expected someone to wear a complete Juicy Couture jumpsuit to a Cartier Event or carrying a fake designer Bag… Dear Mr. Dior, the list can go on. My goodness, people in the Pacific Northwest absolutely have no sense of class. When invited to an “invitation-only” event, does not mean to dress in jeans or jackets circa 1960’s. I’m sorry but that’s the facts of life and high society.

I don’t see Tinsley Mortimer dressing like a homeless person to a NYFW after party nor do I see Michelle Obama in a nightgown attending the State dinner at the White House. This rule applies to everyone. If you know what event you are invited to, it doesn’t hurt to ask to see what the attire is. If you call yourself a fashionista, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!

For the rest of the crowd that dressed to impress, I have to say I was impressed. Many of the other guests were jealous. [ oh who really gives a shit? right?! ].

Oh and word of the wise: Those who purchased a Hermes Birkin or Kelly bag in the recent months… These are the type of events you should be carrying them. You shouldn’t be FLAUNTING them at Girls Night Out Events at Neiman Marcus but at these “invitation only” events. I’m sorry, if you don’t have a Birkin or Kelly… Wear your Chanel, Givenchy, Balenciaga, or Louis Vuitton bags. For God Sakes!!! They were showing you pieces that ranges from $200,000 to $800,000… That’s a fucking House for God’s Sakes!!!!

Child, if it hurt why are you sticking your finger in Charlie’s mouth again?

….. Kids do not learn…. (shake my head)

The wait is over!

The Shops at The Bravern management has announced a mid-June opening for its new coffee shop, VoVito Caffè & Gelato, a concept developed by Eastside entrepreneurs Ariff and Shairose Gulamani. The custom coffee and gelato shop will occupy 2,444 square feet just off the 110th Avenue arrival court adjacent to the outdoor fireplace.

VoVito will offer “coffee for connoisseurs,” says Ariff – the best in hand-crafted espresso, coffee and tea beverages by the cup, box or carafe, along with smoothies and milkshakes. Fresh, custom-made gelato and gelato desserts and cakes, ice cream, sorbetto, salads, baked goods, sweet bites, cold plates (cheese and fruit), and assorted finger foods round out the menu. The café will open at 6:30 am to provide breakfast items along with that morning latte.
