Only in New York

So this week starts like any other! what does that mean? every week in my life starts like any other but only because it starts with a Monday. I have now applied for my Mercedez Benz Press Pass for Fashion Week and no doubt it will be the usual fight to make them understand that I really deserve one and I really do write about what I go and see. Unlike a lot of other tweeters and bloggers that I could mention. Will I use the ‘Do you know who I am’? line no I don’t think so because there are so many Divas in fashion and you all know that isn’t really me, well not on a Monday.

So after the trauma of trying to understand an application form I ventured out to the office. Big mistake Huge! 93degrees and humidity like no other, I mean how do you describe that you are walking to work wearing cling film or food wrap I have no idea what the Americans call it. Fortunately I had just washed my hair and covered it in a bottle of Hydrating Creme thanks to Hair Rules and my good friend Dickey. I stress this point because otherwise I would have looked like a poodle on Crack! oh and 3 people tweeted me the answer cling film Brits in the US is called Saran Wrap, yep me, too no wiser.

Well anyway I have digressed but I am on Broadway crossing over 37th to 36th when I see parked in the street (Sorry Americans Sidewalk) this window dressers dummy dressed in a glass dress. I thought maybe she was Super Man’s girlfriend and really it was a case of Krypton.

I really thought I was having sun stroke when I then noticed there was yet another dummy on the street (Sidewalk) and she had a Concrete Brick Dress… that literally takes the biscuit! I mean who can walk in a Brick Dress ?

I am really needing to lay down in a dark room and I really believe that maybe I will be walking myself into the Betty Ford Clinic and saying ‘I give up, help me’ when I walk into Tiger Woods, I mean tell me who walks around New York with his gold clubs? Only Tiger Woods on a mission to find a hole in one! or a man hired by the mafia to take someone out right?

You see I am definitely going to have to call a friend or go 50 – 50 on this one (Americans this is a TV show who wants to be a Millionaire!) me Me ME oh sorry the heat has really finished me off. Is it only 9am, umm therefore no way I can ask the intern to get me a glass of Chardonnay then!

I actually went home at lunchtime and thought it best to work from home in the afternoon because the office really did not believe the morning I had had. For those of you who really do not believe all I say (Actually does anyone anymore?) here is proof that I do work on the balcony.

As the day cooled down I went to meet two New York tweeters that I met of course on Twitter, @tishacakes and @bridalease and we had a couple of cocktails and I told them about my day. I haven’t heard from them since so not sure if they are still trying to call Betty Ford on the bar telephone but Tisha left me with two very lovely birthday cakes, one of which I devoured on the way home, so say no more. Check her out!

Before I go I have to tell you about today I met with Celebrity Make Up artist Gregg Hubbard and we went for lunch at the Market Cafe in Hells Kitchen. We talked all lunch and I think my salad even turned warm, he is such a doll and re told me so many secret stories that had me laughing out loud in the restaurant. Especially the one about the celebrity who chased a burglar whilst butt naked over two 10foot walls… Who was that? well that is my secret.

Just because I am worth it he left me with this little goodie bag from Bobbi Brown. Gregg I love you but what do I do with the Bonfire Palette?.

I just love Bobbi Brown
