I'll Never Go Hungry Again (in Georgetown)

So yesterday I celebrated my last day of freedom...errr...recess, with a quick spin around Georgetown.

Mind you, this was simply a scoping mission as the 85 degree weather puts a little damper on my eagerness to try on wool and faux fur. Look, they can AC the tar out of the place until I can see my breath, but sorry...not trying on long sleeves just yet.

I did get over to the currently-under-renovation Sephora, where they have kindly moved the makeup to the lower floor, thereby eliminating my last excuse to not browse any time I'm in the 'hood (Sometimes, even a short flight of stairs is an Everest I'm not willing to climb for the sake of makeup. Yes, I am truly that lazy.)

My favorite find of the day was the Vincent Longo Eyeshadow Trio in Biscotti. The single pot contains easily wearable colors, for both day and night, and they have great shimmer. I really like the idea of getting three shadows in one little jar...I feel as though it will help me pare down my makeup bag (Insert snort of derision here).

I also discovered that Le Pain Quotidien is opening on M Street next Saturday! For those of you who haven't been privy to the carbo-holic wonders of this Belgian chain, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Fantastic breads, yummy tartine sandwiches, lattes served in bowls the size of my head, and a praline spread that I would sell my unborn children for.

A staple for refueling on New York shopping excursions (they are convienently located near my favorite shopping haunts), I"m delighted that they have opened in Georgetown because (a) it's so close to my house! and (b) because I swear to God if I had to endure one more veggie cobb salad at J. Paul's I might scream.

Now, if only I could do something about the dearth of cheeky cupcake spots and frozen yogurt...

Oooooh I am so excited that Le Pain Quotidien is opening in G'town! I went there a couple of times when I went to Paris when I was 6 months pregnant. The white chocolate spread is to die for. I brought back a jar and ate it by the spoonful throughout the rest of my pregnancy. Talk about good times. :-)

Le Pain Quotidien! Hurrah!!!! This town needed a *proper* bakery with genuine boules to start the week.

It's ok, I am too. I took an 8-hour drive to St. Louis one year then almost didn't go to the swarovsky and steve madden stores in the mall just because they were on the upper level. ha.

(I probably still shouldn't have gone to swarovsky because i really don't have the money for it, even though everything is just so pretty!)

Have you tried Sweet Green yet? They have great frozen yogurt, much like what I think Pink Berry is (although I've never had it). Very low calorie too! It's great! It's in Georgetown, on M St. between 33rd and 34th.

view of other single color marks in fashion.The district court also erred in its broad construal of aesthetic functionality. Aesthetic functionality is based on the premise that the visual appeal of a trademark may Christian Louboutin Salebe essential to effective competition or an important ingredient in the commercial success of the product, and must, therefore, be free for all to imitate.
