The nancy gonzalez event and the heart break associated with it..

Ok I have to blog about this, I don't have a pic on me but nancy gonzalez was in harvey nix dubai with a preview of the spring summer collection.. Here's what happened..

1800: spotted a gorgeous croc tote, it was huge, it was navy blue, and I loved it. Was told nancy is going to be here in half an hour.

1805: got a call from my cuz, wanted to do tea upstairs..

1830: we went down, the bag was sold out.

Only in dubai!

I am too bummed to take pics n blab about what was going on, u guys should check out her new collection on her webbie tho.

UPDATE: after a get together with the girls who told me that if it was meant to be then its gonna be mine, and that a better bag will come along.. and a recession talk that kinda got me thinking (although i do believe that the economy will be better off with us shopping) I felt that i can look up the bag online, BUT i could not find it online in that colour, also.. it was the first bag to go at the trunk show.

Its the Drawstring tote:

in blue..

I am not a huge Nancy gonzalez fan, but trust me: that bag was HOT! I thought the line would be a tad boring, mais au contraire. Her bags were flamboyant and fun.. Do check them out when they hit stores!

- to moving on :P xx.

Lesson of the day: do not tea when amazing buy is available and found. Buy then Tea.

according to the secret,imagine things that you want to have and really, truly believe that you already have them."The Universe will start to rearrange itself to make it happen for you."
hehe.. see,universe actually cares about us.
p.s.Keep thinking about owning that blue bag and you shall have it.;).
p.p.s.disclaimer:I am still on the fence when it comes to this book.I like the idea of law of attraction BUT Rhonda Brynes(sp?)goes way over the top IMO.
anyhoo,stay well!!

Fastidious Babe said...

Fury: i like the book, i mean u should never underestimate the power of positive thinking XD xx

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I am new to developing websites and I was wondering if having your blog
title related to your content really that critical? I notice your
title, "Blogger: Fastidious Babe " does seem to be spot on with
what your blog is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title
less content descriptive and based more around site branding.
Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or
vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could
greatly benefit from each other. If you're interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
safeguard against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?

Hello there, I'm new to blogging and internet sites in general and was wondering how you got the "www" included in your domain name? I see your web address, "" has the www and my domain looks like, "". Do you know exactly how I can alter this? I'm
using Wordpress. Thanks a ton

Today, I went to the beach with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
had to tell someone!

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple
tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let
me know where you got your theme. Thank you

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of
hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
