I'm all for a Gwyneth type detox - but only whilst on a Carribean beach. Admit it - the concept just doesn't work in January, when broke, or pre-fashion week. I decided - quite sensibly instead that evenings will be done in "moderation". Seems however I haven't yet got my head around the concept.
One day into my "moderation detox" and a dinner, the perfect opportunity to exercise moderation and the behaviour becoming to my position -it was a cosy affair with my neighbours, home cooked pasta, and a bottle or two of vino. Why then did it have to end at 3am with us dancing to ancient youtube videos and posting random facebook comments...???????????? The only upside is at least the neighbours can't complain.
Yes, my will-power displayed a PATHETIC lack of control last night as I succumbed to the obligatory after-dinner shot of vodka to, "aid digestion", the shot of limoncello "because it's cold outside" and, a shot of cognac, "because, well because it was an unwanted Christmas present". Mmmmmm. Not sure this happens to famous fashion muses - I somehow can't imagine Amanda Harlech dancing to Tiffany...
Despite being annoyed with myself (and anyone who dares to contact me today), I'm at least not guilty of boring myself. I'm so exhausted of speaking to certain aquaintances who are having a "dry spell", when I know for a FACT they'll be the first come fashion week to be dancing on the tables with a freebie bottle of champagne - you know who you are...
See you there x
