Oh what a relief! It’s such a wonderful feeling waking up to fantastic news. The people of America made the right choice. I’m glad that Barack Obama won the election! He’s living proof that the whole concept of American Dream is alive and well.
Yes you can, Obama. Yes you can, America. Congrats!
Some of you might be wondering why I’ve been proactive in campaigning for Barack Obama lately in spite of me being a citizen of the third world living in the Philippines. Well, Barack’s life story is very inspiring and his speeches never fail to move me. I’ve kept track of him for months and I truly believe he is what America *and* the world needs. In my country, the same corrupt politicians and their equally
despicable nepotistic families and cronies have stayed in power for generations… If he wins this election, not only he writes history in America but he also proves to the world that there is hope and true change is possible. I could only dream for
a leader like him to come into the picture and bring what his values and what he stands for in my nation.
Earlier this year, I was brought to tears by THIS photo essay by Callie Shell for Time Magazine. Callie followed Obama for months during campaign season. It’s this exact photo feature that got me obsessed.
“Nov. 7, 2007. – I loved that he cleaned up after himself before leaving an ice cream shop in Wapello, Iowa. He didn’t have to. The event was over and the press had left. He is used to taking care of things himself and I think this is one of the qualities that makes Obama different from so many other political candidates I’ve encountered.“
I’m calling upon my USA-based readers (who are American citizens) who comprise 56% of my readership to vote for someone who, could not only CHANGE one of the most powerful nations on Earth but also the world at large (whether directly or indirectly).
America, please vote for change. Please vote for Barack Obama today.
Holy Manolo Louboutin, is Governor Sarah Palin the stupidest politico of all time? A French Canadian comedy duo called “The Masked Avengers” got hold of Sarah Palin’s private phone number and tricked her into thinking she was talking to Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France. Jesus!
I cannot help but wonder whether or not I have more foreign policy experience than her. For realz! When you think about it, I could see have seen Russia from my ass!!
Barack the Vote! Check out the gorgeous boys of Major Models in New York campaigning for Obama/Biden ’08. To all my precious American friends, I suggest that you vote early and vote for change. Vote Obama!
I know I’ve been obsessed with US Politics lately (ok fine whatever… maybe Sarah Palin’s outrageous expenditures & aesthetics because, afterall, my blog is a fashion blog) but oh my god you guys, wait till you see my newest obsession. His name is Steve Grove, he lives in San Francisco, and he’s YouTube’s News & Politics Editor. He also video blogs on YouTube under CitizenTube. HE IS SO HOT!!!!!!
I spent two hours watching his videos online. I really think he’s cute. There’s just something about his face that makes me want to go back and hit the play play play button over and over and over and over. No other media person has made me feel this way. OK, maybe Vogue Nippon’s Anna della Russo because that woman is so thin, so fierce, so ferosha, she wears everything straight from the runway. I love her!
Enough about Anna though and more about Steve. Legs akimbo ladies and say HOEE-LAH to papi. Click click click!
If you think the $150,000 shopping spree (which, btw, is somewhat unaccounted for) was outrageous, have you heard the news that Gov. Sarah Palin paid make-up artist Amy Strozzi the amount of $22,800 for services rendered during the first two weeks of October? In addition to that, Sarah paid $10,000 to hair stylist Angela Lew.
Like I previously wrote, I don’t really keep track of new Louis Vuitton bags, especially their monogram canvas line, so I’m no authenticity expert. I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and ask my readers because, for all I know, there might be new pieces out there that I’m personally not aware of. I did mention what I knew about the Speedy because, like everyone else (including their dog and their mother), I own one. There’s just something suspicious about the trimming on the side, the “feet”, the handles… everything! The details on Piper Palin’s bag raised alarm bells!
[UPDATE: Piper Palin's bag is FAKE!!! Click here.]
How young is young? Here's a photo of seven-year old Piper Palin holding a Louis Vuitton handbag. Is it hers or is she carrying mommy's? Is it part of the $150,000 shopping spree?
Gossip blog Deceiver.com identified the bag as the $790 Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Montorgueil PM (available at eLuxury) but upon closer inspection, it doesn't look like it's the same thing. Will the Louis Vuitton lovers/experts/addicts out there (I know there's a ton of you out there) identify Piper Palin's bag? It looks like a speedy but I'm not aware of a speedy with that trim on the side. Also, I'm not aware of a speedy with "feet" at the bottom of the bag.
Please excuse my ignorance because I'm doing a very bad job of keeping — oh
what the heck — I haven't been keeping track of Louis Vuitton bags
lately. I'm already happy with my ostrich piece de resistance (which I REEEALLY
should put in a glass box) that other bags simply don't matter. Bad enough I have to worry about paying my bills lets alone look at bags I can't afford.
Fantasizing about Lanvin is an exception though because hello, it's free to dream and in my dreams I'm always wearing Lanvin. Just kidding.
The question is… is the bag real or is it fake? I'll leave it up to you to decide.
