I'm a die-hard Rafael Nadal fan. He stands to win his 7th French Open Title, putting him ahead of all others! Right now he is tied with Bjorn Borg for 6 French Open wins! So tomorrow is his big day against the great Novac Djokovic, who may just be known as the greatest tennis player yet! It's so hard to believe that they keep besting each other. Roger Federer is just an incredible tennis machine, as is Rafael Nadal. It's just that he is so endearing and humble, with his cute Spanish accent. I just want to see him win at least one more French! So here are my positive vibes going out to him, before the match! Sorry I couldn't be there, but I'll be right there on my couch, crossing my fingers and watching with bated breath! My excuse for putting up some pics here!

|New York Fashion Week 2010|
Usually when I browse the fashion shots from a show, I like maybe 10% of what I see or at least I can visualize it on me or someone like me on the street. Just when I think I am liking a designer like Vera Wang, Nicole Miller or Hilfigger, they come out with a totally quixotic creation, which makes me wonder just what they were doing when they got their inspiration. I know that lately the news has been talking about certain politicians being "out-of-touch" with the American population, but I think fashion designers can be every bit as much removed from the general rank and file and even more so!
But I found a very hopeful designer couple, Sachin + Babi, who has used restraint in their recent collections and who are very popular with younger women, average age 25. I also like that these are ready-to-wear fashions and can be bought off the rack. I thought I'd post a few of their outfits just to make a note of it. I hope that New York will be seeing a lot more of them in the coming years. Sachin + Babi Ankasa are married and they made their debut in 2007 and staged their first runway show this last February. I look at their 2010 collection and can see their influence now in 2012! (Here's hoping they stay married for awhile!)
You can purchase Sachin + Babi Clothing at
Polyvore, Nieman Marcus, and other fine stores!

Summer may not officially start for a couple more weeks, but most of us are already looking to stay cool . One of those ways is to wear fewer clothes and that means that we are now looking at our bodies and some of us are saying, uh-oh, I need to do something about this, and fast! We've gone the caffeine route, the metabolism boosters with questionable stimulants route, the energy drinks and so now, here is a way that maybe is the best, because it's natural and has no side-effect...unless you are allergic to raspberries! It's called Raspberry Ketone from Daily Nutrition, a cutting-edge company dedicated to finding the best and most effective nutritional ways to lose weight safely and have incredible energy at the same time! I'd normally be a little bit suspicious about something like that because I've heard it all about a lot of foods - from grapefruit to pickles to fish. But then I listened to this strong recommendation from Dr. Oz and I've changed my mind. I'm taking Raspberry Ketone right now and what I've noticed is that I'm not hungry or craving! On top of that, it is supposed to make your metabolism much more efficient in terms of burning fat! So here I am, once again, super motivated and hopeful that I will lose that 10 lbs I put on and just can't seem to lose! If you're in the same boat, I suggest you take a listen to this video from Dr. Oz as he explains about Raspberry Ketone.
I love that this supplement has absolutely no artificial ingredients, 100% FDA approved and safe!
Basically, here is what you can expect from Raspberry Ketone:
- Potent Fat Burner
- Effective Appetite Suppressant
- Works Quickly, Proven Results
- Affordable Prices
- Tremendous Weight loss results
- Increase in Focus
- Energy Throughout the day
- No Crash
