What I Wore Today: Caffeinated Turban

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Feels good to be blogging again. I hope blogger doesn't pull off anymore stunts like their "friday the 13th" one!

leopard top from Mango c/o Pat and is for sale. Just email me.
Vintage black beaded necklace
Dorothy Perkins wide-legged denims
Jessica Simpson Dany
Accessorize bag
DIY turban

On this day, our friend Mike, who is an instructor at the Phil. Barista Academy, asked me to be a judge for the graduation of this month's batch of students. Each student was asked to make three drinks; one espresso, one cappuccino and one signature drink. There were 7 students so that makes a total of 21 coffee's that I had to taste and judge on. NOT GOOD. Halfway thru, my head was spinning like a top. I was speedballing real bad. We started at 1pm and ended close to 6pm. There was no way I was gonna be able to get some sleep without drinking.

We were supposed to go out with some friends that night for drinks but I felt terrible. I was shaking like a mother and I felt like I had just OD'd on something like coke. The beers I had helped calm me down in a way but it also got me twitching. The following day, I had still not recovered. Still strung out like Will Farell on Kicking and Screaming. LOL. As I write this, everything is back to normal. Word of advice: Never drink 21 cups of coffee unless you wanna go on a commenting blog frenzy all day. Maybe I singlehandedly brought down blogger the other day!


Anyone going to the Heima event today? :)

And one last BIG favor, I used to do this just for fun until I found out that they were giving out free shoes from Bakers for making Look of the Week. So friends and readers, if you have time, or can make time, please register on Shoeternity.com and vote for my look. You can upload your photos too for a chance to win a pair of shoes. Any shoe you like! :)



Thank you, thank you so much in advance. Hope I make it! Have a nice day! :)
