Socially Excited!!

Well..well..well what a socially actioned pack week it has been. Is everyone contemplating de-tox as much as I am at the moment??
In the light of the day, sitting here at work,  I have to question the complete disregard my impulse synapses have for my poor old liver.  Those pushy Von Economo cells (these are the cells in our brain that make us seek social interaction) are also to blame.
I am presently consuming water at a massive rate and eating my good sulphur rich foods to bolster my abused liver's function as much as possible. The sad story is it will just have to hang in there for a couple Von Economo cell fuelled weeks more and then it can have some r & r.

The unbridled frivolity all started last week at the Calexico fashion parade at Brunswick Social  in The  Valley.  So much fun and so many positively charged people all dressed up and happy.
Being given lots of drinks and lots of steamed dumplings (which are delicious) is always a good way to start an evening in my books. So we stood around chatting and eating, eating and chatting. The fashion parade commenced. Beautiful long, lithesomely limbed girls came strutting out stalking up and down the catwalk looking impossibly young and a little bit more than hungry. I did feel bad, watching them (obviously ravenous) walking through a throng of people eating unashamedly their body weight in Dim Sum. I for one am always pro food so I can safely say was shovelling delicious steamed morsels into my mouth at an alarming rate...At one point one of them spotted my food mid air and I thought the wee waif would float down and try and wrangle it from me. She would have been up for a fight I tell you.
During the course of the parade I spotted a shoe that caught my attention away from the food, beverages and the socialising. A beautiful pair of platform Alexandre Birman's elegantly holding up one of the models. It was love at first site. They would be mine.

Gorgeous girl, gorgeous frock and that painting across the eyes...that's my new look.

Beautiful, but eyeing off some food as you can see

This lovely creature is the one that started my shoe obsession. There they are on her feet begging me to take them home. Mind you I'm 5'10 and in these I hit 6"2...tall girls can have nice shoes too!!

The New Shoe Alexandre Birman is a clever man.

Me and my gorgeous friend Jacqueline...real girls with real drinks. Actually, she is too thin and pretty to be my friend so may have go Jac sorry.

So after Calexico event I kept a low profile on the weekend, mainly sleeping on lounge, being jumped on by offspring and floating on pool bed. All very low stress and low impact. 
So this week has just flown by. It's been Industry Christmas parties and socially significant occasions amped by 100. 
This week I have attended the following:
The gorgeous girls from Ivy & Piper put on a little soiree for all of us Bloggers in Brisbane Town (which I must say was very girly and special) and it was great to catch up to Anna from Black & Spiro, Robin from Magnolia Interiors, Lauren from Rilo and Judy who I bought Lily G off way back when.
The girls from Ivy & Piper have a stunning show room and everyone frocked up like ladies. 
I had just been doing a big install all afternoon so I threw on my Megan Park jacket and that was as good as it got with me.
This is not me....that is my jacket.

Wednesday is a blur I think I worked.
Thursday my gorgeous generous and always helping everyone else in the world friend
Nim invited me to her personal Louis Vuitton morning tea.
Nim (who works tirelessly for many many causes and can buy as much Louis Vuitton as she likes because she deserves it) invited a few girls to accompany her to a personal morning tea held at Louis Vuitton in the mall.
It was a lovely morning in anyone's standard and anyone coming at me at 10.30 in the a.m with a Magnum of Veuve is a friend of mine for life.
We went through the art of scarf tying and lots of other very girly useful stuff and then proceeded to make big (dreaming) wish lists for partners, husbands or benevolent bank managers to consider when Christmas shopping for us.
I bought myself my own Christmas gift which was a gorgeous gold pair of the Lily Louis Glasses.
I think they were also speaking to me...and yes I have seen a doctor about this condition. 

Many people have asked me over the last two years why I didn't change the name of the store when I bought it, many thought I should have. Lily was my great grandmothers name and my great grandfather was George so I don't mess with the messages the universe gives me, i.e buy shoes and buy sunglasses.

The Ladies

Part of my wish list..
The new season Louis Vuitton shoes will be in Australia next year.
They are whispering sweet nothings. My bank balance is containing sweet nothing.

Tonight is dinner with friends...I will be drinking mineral water and trying not to fall over in my new Alexandre Birman's enjoy your weekend.
