Le Quitting

A friend wrote to me and told me how disappointed he was that I was discontinuing Le Blog and said:

I like to get to "hear" your voice and experience your charm thru the blog and I imagine others feel the same way.

Thanks KDR, that's really sweet and I promise to keep trying to write.

Btw I'm not quitting Le Blog. My last blog post was an attempt to return to honesty and say what I think and write how I write now, as opposed to trying to recapture a past me who wrote differently. I don't think I would end or leave Le Blog. I did cheat on Le Blog though at one point. We were going through a rough patch and I swear I was thinking of Le Blog the whole time. Le Blog and I are working things through now (as you have been privy to)...I'm not sure what will happen with Le Nouveau Monde. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I leave you with more Zach Galifianakis.

Le Lanvin for H&M

Lanvin's special collection for H&M

Can't wait for Lanvin to come to H&M on November 23rd (November 20th for you New Yorkers!). Don't you love that the 80s are back big time?

Le reasons for not blogging anymore

You may be wondering why I don't blog anymore. It's because somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, on my way to New York City three years ago, I lost my voice; specifically, Le Blog's voice. In the thick of writing this blog, I never realized that it was less about me, and more about my journey to fulfilling my dream of moving to New York City. Once I moved to NYC, my journey - and the voice of this blog - went away. With no journey to document, that leaves me with the option of writing about my life in NYC, which feels weird for a few reasons. I loathe to fill these pages with stories of good things I'm doing because it feels contrived and, well, who gives a sh*t. I also don't want to write about the sad and difficult parts, or stories of my disappointments, because my intent with this blog is to create a space that people come to in order to escape the real world for a few minutes, and leave with a smile. That leaves the mundane experiences of my day to day life, which no one wants to read about. Also, I think the reason my voice has changed is because living in a city like New York inevitably changes you. I'm not the same person anymore; I've grown up. Yuck.

So what do I do, dear reader? Are you still there?

I leave you with a link to my new favorite show called "Bored to Death" starring Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, Zach Galifianakis (yes, my new obsession). It's silly, about creative people, funny and filmed mainly in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Enjoy.
