Have you ever had such an incredible dinner - the people, the atmosphere, the food, the conversation, everything just so magic - that you literally could not sleep after? That's what last night was like. And it was all women. We were invited to a very private exclusive dinner (usually when they say that, it means a free for all) but this really was. AQUA KYOTO is the most amazing place I've ever been. It makes Nobu look like fast food.
Everything was just so unbelievably wonderful, the food so sublime, that I can't properly explain. So I"m going to split this in separate posts, and go out into the sunshine instead. Along with my friend Kate McAuley ('I'm not a celebrity'), it was the first time I met the women behind Red Carpet Fashion Awards, Disney Roller Girl, Alex Loves, and my fellow American, Emily of Fashion Fois Gras, and they're all so so nice. Generous spirited, fun, intelligent women. And how fitting: these are shots of her actually eating SUSHI FOIS GRAS (the green one). I think I shall remember this dinner for, like, ever. Thank you to Jess for inviting me, and Fiona and Amy of the Communication Store for being such great hostesses. Memorable, magic night.
There is a lovely tradition that has cropped up, to devote our Friday posts to Japan. Last night and today I've felt immersed in the Japanese culture, even dreaming of Japan. Doing this, in my heart, for you, but check out Kate's post today, which compiles creative ways people are raising money for Japan.
