I just want to share with you all that I just cannot believe my luck! But then again, I believed it subconsciously so now it's happening!

Yesterday, I went to a New York City showroom to do some "work" for a friend. Guess what! Not only did I get to see how a New York City showroom looks like (although I've been to a contemporary fashion label's showroom at the Meatpacking District, this particular one carries various labels) I got invites to go to real, authentic New York City trade shows, which happen right after NY Fashion Week!!! This is where the buyers go to showrooms to choose the pieces that they will sell for next season! Stuff that I only read about in Fashion Babylon!!! Yippee!!!

Really, when I buzzed the showroom's front door, I just thought I was in for a quick meeting. But after a warm greeting from the showroom intern and a bottle of cold mineral water handed to me, I sat on an antique upholstered bench and found myself surrounded by well-made, practically engineered articles of clothing, roomy bags made out of exotic skins and French baubles made of precious metals and semi-precious stones! After meeting with the showroom owner, I quickly reported back to my friend, and next thing I know I have to "give up" my Saturday morning to go watch the big shots at "work"! Hey, it's a tough job, but someone's got to do it! Hehehe!

I don't mean to sound crazy, but writing about stuff that I want to do or buy and sharing these with all of you here truly works! Promise! After nurturing the idea in my head, and writing it down in stone, it just begins to concretize! Imagine, a couple of days back, I wrote about NY Fashion Week, and now I get to be in the center of the buying scene! Where all the moneymaking happens! Now that's better than the runway shows right?

So can I just tell you that I would like go back to school by Fall 2008 and I know that I will get accepted into the program I applied for! With God's blessing, I WILL!

YOu go, girl! Exactly my sentiment! Showrooms and tradeshows are things I only get to read in books and now, you're literally in the thick of things!!!

Well, like you, I am also shouting to the Universe what I want... (well, you know what it is...) Universe!!! Please listen!!!

Oh wow! Thats a really great opportunity for you. Congratulations and Good luck!

Okay..I think I really have to get that book now. hahaha I watched it on Oprah and thought oh I knew that already but I think there are more exercises there that I need to follow. Yesterday's episode was about this too.

I need to shout to the Universe what I want
