Eat, Pray, Love
I finally watched the movie Eat, Pray, Love and...I loved it. Mostly I liked seeing the fabulous places Julia Roberts character, Liz, travels to, and all the delicious food she eats in Italy. I am now totally obsessed with the Italian diet. In the movie she eats her way through her time in Italy with delicious looking pastas, breads, wine, and vegetables in olive oil. So you are probably wondering what does this have to do with fashion? And the answer really is, Nothing. However, for so many of us, its hard to imagine enjoying bread, pasta, wine, cheese, and all the delicious Italian foods without thinking about if we are going to fit in our jeans the next day. In the movie, Liz accepts her new "muffin top" (aka jean bulge) and doesn't let it stop her from enjoying all the delicious flavors of Italy, instead, she buys bigger pants. I want to read Eat, Pray, Love now (I'm kind of ashamed to say that I haven't read it yet, since it seemed to be a book that everyone recommended) and I am going to try and take on Liz's outlook and enjoy life and everything in it, even with a few extra pounds from time to time.
