I Want To Be.........

A few years ago, I started to watch a programme that I had read about in the magazines and had heard about on the TV. Everyone was talking about this TV show that had, gasp, horror, shock, women having relationships like men and openly discussing their sex life's in intimate detail in coffee shops around New York. It also showcased a huge amount of wonderful clothes and gave us a glimpse of how the modern women ate, drank and played within the Big Apple.

My favourite character had to be Carrie Bradshaw. Here was a woman who spent most of her day either writing/researching her column or shopping for clothes/shoes. A girl after my own heart! This was a woman that typified everything that I wanted to be. She had a huge closet, full of designer clothes, an incredible shoe collection and an array of rather handsome men to date. But best of all this lady got to write her own column, write for Vogue and write her own book - what more could you ask for?

So it's this lady that I have to thank, for making one of my tasks, to get my own column in a magazine or newspaper. A fictitious lady, I am well aware, but someone who has still shaped my life, gave me a love of designer shoes and kept me spellbound in her quest for love in one of my favourite cities.

To what column I should write, has kept me wondering for a little while, but for some reason, I keep coming back to my blog and the fact that I would love for this to reach a wider audience. So in the next couple of weeks, I'm going to see what I can do about making that happen. You never know, I could be the next Carrie Bradshaw!

hmmm, if I wrote about the relationships I had prior to hubbie, then I don't think anyone would believe me - I dated some very strange men!
