aisle or window?

In a few hours, I'll be well on my way to Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana. Botswana is right above South Africa (yes it'll be winter) and the sand is red there (says the Internet). I am excited to smell the air and taste the foods, two senses that can't be delighted via online photos. And you know the excitement is real when my emoji game goes a little overboard.

Over the years, I've gone from preferring window to aisle. It might be my friend Kathryn whose deep fear of deep vein thrombosis inspired my own... but I get so angsty on airplanes, especially when flying alone. I need to get up and walk around.

The bright-line rule in packing for this trip: Don't bring anything I'd be devastated about losing. Leave anything I could buy in Botswana. 


I went into dental school today to run some errands and ran into Dave! Who told me that his beau asked him this: "why are you so cranky all the time?" We laughed and agreed that every person dating a dental student might wonder that.

I am SO EXCITED to see dentistry in Botswana (there's currently no dental schools in Botswana), dental health of the people there, and fun dental culture bits (like in Korea how every toothpaste has bamboo salt). My flight itinerary is a little insane... so I won't be in Botswana until Sunday afternoon (gulp). Until then, beautiful peoples, please have a great week of orientation/ back-to-school/ rotations/ work/ camp etc.

  1. Coach, the all-American replica louis vuitton company, celebrated its 75th anniversary during New York Fashion Week.For his first runway collection, creative director Stuart Vevers - in his fourth season with Coach - had to make a statement about clothes. This was his chance to create an entire universe for young women: short, swingy skirts, jackets - perhaps in ginger suede, and neat little boots patterned to compete with the tiny florals dotting dresses.Flower Power! I felt it the moment that I met with Stuart at the Coach headquarters, soon moving nearer to New York's evocative High Line. Everywhere, there were little flowers redolent of the 1970s, when floral designs picked up on the William Morris Art Nouveau era. But Stuart had controlled that flower-child feeling by cutting the sweetness of the patterns with geometric lines and inserts of leather and suede.I have known British-born Stuart, 41, even before he worked at the leather accessory houses of replica handbags uk. So before he sent out his Coach collection of cropped jackets, patchwork waistcoats, pleated skirts, patterned bootees and, of course, flowery purses, I sat down with Stuart to find out his master plan of taking Coach beyond handbags.It is still only my fourth season! It feels longer because it was such a big change for Coach. Apart from the creative direction, people are still getting their head around the basic idea [of clothing], so I want a really good sense of consistency. Reinforcing that goal, the idea is of a youthful interpretation of luxury. I feel that is really important right now - a conversation with the next generation. And I guess it's human nature that we never want to dress like our parents.Exactly, and I think there's something in that - a real desire for cheap replica handbags, uniqueness and individuality. That is why I really wanted to explore what can be unique about Coach. It is very important to me that we never present a robotic army of girls.
