So… amazingly enough, this IS NOT a joke and Vlad just bought this insanely sexy, fast and GORGEOUS Porsche 911 CONVERTIBLE!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Alright, now before you think we are millionaires or something… lets get a few things clear… 😉
He found this on eBay for the insanely low price (for a Porsche anyways) of $26,000… ummmm… my friends new Chevy Cavalier cost her four grand more than our Porsche, so I’m thinking its a pretty sick deal…

It is currently in Pensylvania just waiting for the movers to come and pick it up 😉 With any luck, we will be cruisin’ around town by mid next week (with some pics of us IN it – so that you guys actually believe me 😉

Ahhhh… silver with navy blue leather interior… mmmmmm…


So here is the question I have for all of y’alls…

Vlad and I have about three weeks of vacation coming up… and we are definately going on a roadtrip convertible Bonnie & Clyde style to California to see some friends and family. We will be stopping around the U.S. along the way and want to know where we should go and what we should see, eat, experience… anything you can think of!

Dare us to try something? Know about fun and daring activities in the U.S. where we can stop (keep in mind our route from Montreal to Cali – must be along the way)?

Let me know 😉

Have you put your dreams on hold?

I friend of mine currently residing in Australia, brought a very valid point to the table this morning. She messaged me through facebook and let me in on what she’s been recently thinking about. Her name is Tara. Tara and I have been through thick and thin and somehow have still come out stuck together. She is my dysfunctional marriage version of a best friend ;). Anyways, she was reminiscing on our graduation from elementary school. The teachers had made the whole graduating class rehearse for months so that we could finally sing “Reach” by Gloria Estefan for the graduation ceremony. Corny as hell, but hey – it was elementary school!

Anyways, the song is about achieving your dreams and fulfilling your destiny. About really getting what you want out of life and pushing to be your best self. Tara asked me “Robyn, how many people do we actually know who are still going for their wildest dreams and actually achieving them”? When I thought about it seriously, I realized that there really werent very many! Many people I know have accepted a crappy standard of living, are in horrible jobs, or settled for something a little less than what they originally hoped for. I understand in elementary school you don’t know anything about the dedication it takes to be a doctor or a lawyer, or what it really takes to travel around the world. The part that disturbs me though, is not that people haven’t gotten around to their life’s “to do” list, it’s that they have simply buried it under a pile of crap that is utterly meaningless to them!

We are all still young and most of us haven’t even really started to experience life yet. I get it. I know how hard it is to save money for the things you want to do, and the places you want to explore. Just don’t push it out of your life. Work hard to achieve your dreams, as I truly believe if you don’t they will eventually come back to bite you in the “mid-life crisis” ass. Whatever you suppress now will only come back to haunt you as regret later on. Seize life and make it yours, and never, never, never give up!

Godiva Chocolate Hotel Room!!!

Ladies, ladies, ladies… I don’t know if you’ve already heard about this, but let me tell you – it is music to my unknowing ears!!! Last year for Valentine’s Day, Godiva Chocolatier played Willy Wonka and hid a secret invitation in one of it’s special edition Valentines Day truffles assortments!
The company re-created a suite at the famous Bryant Park Hotel in New York City for a sinful getaway for two. Everything from the table, chandeliers, books (which opened up to truffles), as well as paintings (a chocolate rendition of Gustav Klimts “The Kiss”) were made entirely of chocolate. Mmmmmmm…. Can you say “overdose”?!?

Lucky Ali Larter got to experience it firsthand to promote it as their spokesperson… lucky girl!

Pretty irresistible stuff, huh Ali? 😉

Parisian Promises

Posted in dreams, inspiration, travel by fashionista514 on February 19, 2009

What is it about french fashion? Ahhhhh… although I know it may be my biggest fashion crime, I have never been to Paris! This most definitely has to change, but in the meantime I will continue to dream of that certain “Je ne sais quoi“… What is it about french women that seem so meticulous and divine? My french ideology is an absolutely classic yet frivolous ensemble of style that leaves me yearning to dress in feathers, crushed velvet and sling a sexy black quilted leather handbag over my shoulder (sigh). A succulent lifestyle full of beauty and intellect… not to mention some delicious rich food 😉

Ahhhh… till that day I will continue to imagine myself parked on a terasse in a cobblestone villa sipping my bowl of cafe latte in my grey suede studded louboutins. Paris and I were made for each other!

Till next time I bid you all adieu!
