Hi Nicole. First of all: I love the doggie does vampire-style pic! I’ve been taking a look around your blog: you made me agree, you made me mad, you made me smile and you made me feel sad. Your blog certainly moves people in one way or another, which is really powerful! I still don’t know what to make of you though, well, a crazy chick obviously :-) but apart from that, I don’t know. And it probably isn’t my business in the first place. You write for you and the love of your current life and philosophy. I see you live in co-existence with your eating disorder, although not always peacefully, but it certainly gives you a special je ne sais quoi. I must honestly say that I was a little bit worried when I saw you suggesting to someone to restrict in a comment, but you cleared that reaction up in a follow-up comment, so now I think you really care about your readers/friends too. Not that that matters. In any case, I will keep on reading. Okay, now I’m a little bit afraid to post this comment (wussy people pleaser I am) and unleash a possible sarcastic wrath upon me :-) I’ll be scarirly looking forward to a reply.

Half a year later, and she’s one of my best, dearest friends to ever touch my life. Not only does she write for The Panel, but she’s a fellow pug mother and ‘Raw with Benefits‘ Foodie who sent the most gorgeous belated birthday pressie, which I just received yesterday, straight from Belgium!!!!!!!!!
Little Ms. Pressie Lover Gwendolyn, taking her paw to the gift! Impatient like her Mommy!
OMG. It is literally the perfect, most thoughtful gift.
Ayn Rand gin flask!
Gizmo T-shirt, like the one which I LOVED in Sonja’s inaugural post, “The Fat One.”
The most amazing notebook that I’ve ever owned.
A pretty card.
And a yoga girl sticker!!!
“Mommy, I approve.”
“Perhaps you can snap a photograph of my side profile, since it’s so beautiful?”
The most perfect notebook has inspired me to write that which I’ve been prolonging. Three books in progress, this pretty notebook shall house one of those three. It shall furthermore serve as daily reminder that fashion trumps food in terms of nourishment. And it shall keep me as a thin girl. Like Carrie Bradshaw.
Thank you, Sonja. I dedicate this book to you.
What is one gorgeous birthday surprise that you shall never forget?
