“And, when you want something,

all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

— Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

It’s been quite the second year and I’d be telling a fib to say I was expecting it — because I wasn’t.

Sometimes, when one door closes, or more than one door closes, we are lucky and blessed enough to have a few more that open. And it’s like Mr. Coelho said, if you want it bad enough, if you try hard enough — well, I believe him, something has got to give.

Little Pink Blog is a community, and some really wonderful people helped make it happen from friendships, to advice, to being professional pals, study buddies or a shoulder to cry on — make no mistake, I didn’t do this alone — and to them, I am grateful. The simple truth of the matter is that in 3-months we had 6,000 unique visitors, 2-years later I’m humbled and in awe of the 30,000 that appreciate all things LPB! Y’all rock my pink socks 🙂

Regardless, from Miami to New York and back and then there again it’s been an adventure… and while, I would love to share all my photos of my first year in New York City and my blog’s second year on the planet, I had to be economical in this post…mostly… well I tried!

Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
Happy SECOND Birthday to my Little Pink Blog,
– Happy Birthday to me!

And the story starts here… [but if you’re desperate for the giveaway feel free to scroll]

Shoe Wars: Christian Louboutin vs. Yves Saint Laurent

Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent are two brands synonymous with luxury.

Both are fabulous in their own right and very coveted by women all over the world including the most famous of celebrities.

So why would YSL blatantly take Christian Louboutin‘s signature red sole and put it on their shoes?

In my opinion, if YSL was trying to take on the genious of the red sole and apply it to their line, maybe a good suggestion could be a different color?

Yves Saint Laurent has already dabbled with this idea using the very vibrant color yellow and I like it!

It definitely gives the shoe a certain trendy style that resembles that of Christian Louboutin’s signature look. [Read more…]
