My son Ben knows me so well.
When I entered the room, he asked me, “Mommy, are you buying those Balenciaga Crocs?”
“Yes, definitely. What color should I get?”
Ben, 15, said yellow or pink.
“I’m kind of leaning towards grey. But if it’s not too expensive, I want to get a color too,” I said.
I really don’t like purple
And the black looks a bit benign. We’ll see…
I’m guessing price point would be around $650. Just a wild guess from me.
I got one of those hyped Balenciaga “Ikea” bags because I really think it’s art.
I also think Demna Gvasalia is a genius. I was talking about Demna with my friend Tere Henson.
Demna is the creative director of Balenciaga, and co-founder of Vetements, which is my current favorite label.
So the more the Internet made fun of the “Ikea” bag, the more I wanted it.
I feel the same way about the Crocs.
In 2011, I had dinner with Jappy Gonzalez and Mr. Enda Cleary of Comme des Garçons where I opened up the idea of a CDG x Crocs collab.
During that time I was all about CDG, and now I am all about Demna, so this shoe is really amazing.
So the Universe really does give me what I want. Or maybe in Balenciaga’s case, Univers will.
So my new(ish) car is coded on Wednesdays. It took me a while to remember that, and I still forget sometimes and have to grab an Uber.
Oh, and the Universe usually gives me what I want.
Two months ago, I decided to go on a diet. The goal was to drop 20 lbs. Many people have been asking me how I did it, but I do not want recommend because of the suffering.
Basically it’s a combination of starvation, cycling, a fat burner, and that’s not all.
It’s hell, but I’ve lost 14 lbs.
Six lbs to go.
Speaking of being coded on Wednesdays and slimming down, it was really a wish granted when Maxinne Ignacio of Big Day Slim Team asked me if I would like to try their home spa again.
It was like Universe giving me a gift.
Big Day Slim Team is on my list for noninvasive slimming treatments. They’re a home-service team that can do a spa set up in your home. They come complete with a spa bed, candles and other props to make it a complete experience.
