Last night me and my good friend Lucy went to see NERD @ Irving plaza in NYC!!
And i have to say... it was FUN FUN FUN.
To be honest, I'm not such a big fan of NERD and I only like 3 or 4 songs from them: Provider, Maybe and LAPDANCE. But today i found out that I've already seen them 3 times in my life! How is that possible??? haha
The first time was @ 'the Lokersefeesten' and the second time was @ 'Pukkelpop' ( 2 festivals in Belgium). But tonight it was the best one. Maybe because the venue was so small? Maybe because I was in a "concert mood" and totally exited to see Pharrell Williams preforming, AGAIN? Or maybe just because i saw them this time in NYC?! Seeing a concert in NYC is much more special then seeing a concert in Belgium, I guess. ;-)
Anywayzzzz what i wanted to say is that the concert was good. Not too long, not too short, a good vibe and a mix of hits and new songs from there new, 4th , album 'Nothing'.
And for the girls... of coursePharrell looked AMAZING (like always) and not only is he a sexy motherf*cker, he's also an amazing performer and singer.
Last week a friend from Belgium came to NYC and she gave me the best thing in the world: SPECULOOSPASTA!!!
You can only find it in Belgium, so i was soooo happy she got it for me.
O-M-GUCCI, it's just NOT normal.... It's a spread made from my favorite cookies, speculoos.
It's a paste you put on bread , just like jam or Nutella, it's just so f*cking delicious!!! Mmmmm...
My friends from NY tried it and they went CRAZY. They say it's like a paste made from 'Teddy Grahams' cookies. (just to give you americans an idea how it tastes). It's so good but also soooo fattening. It's more fattening than nutella or peanut butter. But who cares, it's like an orgasm in your mouth.
Sadly for you guys you can't find it here in the USA. Maybe after modeling i open my own Speculoospasta shop in Soho! ;-)
What is it with all these Blackberry addicts!!??? I don't have to speak, I'm also hooked!
But I mean, why?? Why can we not leave our phone for more then 10 minutes alone without checking it?
2 years ago I got my Blackberry as a X-mas present from my parents, me ceesie was all exited and happy, FINALLY i had my Blackberry! I was one of the first who had one in Ghent. I LOVED it (and still do). I travel a lot and it's just so easy to keep in touch with all of my friends when you have the bbm application on your blackberry. What a great invention, no?
I remember having a normal cellphone, I was just waiting for someone to text or call me... but now I check my blackberry every 10 minutes, maybe because you can Email, call, sms, bbm, mms,... all on ONE phone!?!
Ceesie ALWAYS has a bbm conversation open. Even when I'm out partying i sometimes notice myself dancing with my Blackberry in my hand. ( SO BAD) It's just C-R-A-Z-Y and it's not just me, it's EVERYONE!
Before having a crackberry i just left my phone in my bag or pocket, now it's always next to me or in my hand. Imagine being a business man EVERY 5 minutes you have a new email coming in. I guess work just NEVER stops? (poor wife!!!)
Last week I finished the book: "House of Versace" by Deborah ball.
And i'm telling you it is AMAZING.
The book tells the story of the Versace family. Deborah explains how the Versaces made their money. (They actually sold clothes!) But just as important to this bacchanalian fashion tale, she explains how they spent it. And they spent it like CRAZZYYYYYY!!!
Gianni LOVED buying famous painting and expensive furniture, Donatella loved spending money on Drugs, parties, presents and jewelery!
For me it was a very interesting book, i remembered watching the Versace movie when i was a little kid, and i was very fascinated by Versace's work and world. After reading this book I was even more fascinated. I never really realised he was such a BIG designer and that HE is one of the guys who made the supermodels (Like Naomi, Claudia, Linda,...) back in the 90's.
After reading the book i have also a lot more respect for Donatella. She is a VERY strong women who had a very tuff time in her life and who also dealt with a drugs addiction that lasted for many years.
People who have a passion for fashion will love the house of Versace! Go to barns ad Nobles and get that book!
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the sun and I love walking around with just a t-shirt and sunglasses... But the people, the subway, the smell... Beughhhh
My mom always says: "Ceesie when the summer starts the most ugly people are coming out of there houses." And I guess she's right. You just see more meat when it's hot. HA!
Anyway, what I wanted to say is that today I tried my first ICED COFFEE in my LIFE! Seriously... I was tired and in desperate need of a coffee. But of course, it was to hot to order a skinny latte, so i went for a new adventure in the world of coffee... I tried a non fat Iced Latte.
I put the straw in the plastic cup, brought it to my lips and swallowed down the icey cold caffeine into my throat. I was surprised: Mmmmm so good and so refreshing.
I think I've found my new favorite summer coffee. From now on I'm going for a skim iced latte!
