Things I Love Thursday: I’m Leavin’ On A Jet-Plane… For New Zealand!

There’s so much to love this week! …There’s so much to love EVERY week! Here’s a run-down of some of the highlights of my last seven days!

Chicago! Yep, you already know about it, but it bears repeating: Chloe & I took a really, really quick trip (one night, two days) to Chicago last Friday & we had a blast! We’d never travelled together before & it was pretty much perfect! She is such a wonderful girl… Truly.

Girl hangouts! I love hanging out with the “laydeez”. Yesterday I got to see Angeliska for the first time in two (?!) years, as well as Mer, Molly & Kim. Angel split her dress getting out of a cab in too exuberant a fashion, & since we are perverts, she encouraged me to take an upskirt shot… (You can see me crouching in the mirror!) But we bought her turquoise lame hot-pants to help preserve her dignity! (“Pay fo’ yo’ panties!”) Borscht was supped & Crack Pie was devoured (what a terrifying photo!) & Instax pictures were taken, & then we went to Sephora to load up on sparkly eye-shadow & glittering lip gloss… FUN! I love my wild, weird women!

New Zealand excitement! Oui! C’est vrai! On Monday, I fly out to Auckland… The Herald wrote about it, even! Tourism NZ, bless their cotton wooly socks, are flying me down to the Antipodes for the trip of a lifetime! Pretty incredible. I’ll be attending New Zealand Fashion Week (first time!), gawping open-mouthed at World of Wearable Arts (again, first time!), kickin’ it in Nelson & flying down to Christchurch to do something very special.

I don’t get back to New York until the 12th of September — yeah! The day before my birthday! — so it’s a pretty long trip! Poor Mike probably feels like he married a nomad, but sometimes that’s just the way it goes… Don’t worry, I will send him sickly-sweet love notes every day that I’m away!

Anyway, if there’s anything you think I should do in NZ — shops I should visit, cafes I should stop into, art I should investigate, or whatever! — let me know! I haven’t been back in two years (!!!) so I need the scoop!
