Ok, so I know some people are über excited about the new heath care reform bill, but dropping the f*bomb excited? In front of the world? In your ‘proper’ suit? Standing next to the President? Let me give you some etiquette 101 – Don’t drop the f*bomb in front of the world, in a suit, next to the President. Just don’t. No matter who you are, even the VP. Let’s get it together Biden.

So, apparently Marc Jacobs did not cast more full, beautiful, older women in his fall Louis Vuitton show to make a statement of any sort on the topic of too-skinny, fragile looking models. He is making a statement to clarify that he wasn’t making a statement. Thanks Mr. Jacobs. And why would it be such a problem if you were making a statement? Many people have applauded you for the fact that you substituted unhealthy girls for healthy looking, beautiful women. I guess everyone will have to take back their applause, which is a shame. Statements are good.

Getting married, or know someone who’s getting married? Do you or your friend live in the Boston area? Well, on Thursday April 1st get your pad and pen and get down to the Westin Copley Place for some bridal talk, tips and trends. Ted Daniels (event planner) hosts Bridal Buzz and will bring along a group of professionals ranging from photographers, florists, wedding planners, bakeries, musicians, etc. It seems like a very casual, informal environment to ask questions and get advice. They suggest RSVPing - ‘In order to maintain an intimate environment, space is limited. Please email Ted Daniels – Ted.Daniels@Westin.com to RSVP and confirm your attendance.’

Just recently heard about this website, http://renttherunway.com/ apparently you can look through a ton of options from all different top notch designers, then pick out what you want, they will send it to you when you need it (in two different sizes, just to be sure) and then when you’re done, you put it into their pre-paid bag and drop it in the mailbox (no dry cleaning necessary!)

*The only catch is currently they have so many members that they can’t accept new members which stinks. But, you better believe I put my name on the waiting list, and I will eagerly await my turn!

Tonight, my sister Meg and I are going to an event at our alma mater, Merrimack College. Merrimack, along with Saints Women’s Center for Health and Wellness and Fitness Magazine present ‘Women and Wisdom’ to help celebrate women’s history month. They say this should be an ‘evening designed to enlighten your mind, engage your heart and empower your life as we discuss the latest in women’s health and wellness.’

The speakers will be:

Julie Jones, M.D. – Speaking on: “Something to Talk About – Breast Health, Breast Imaging and Cancer Detection/Prevention
Bill Chun, M.D. – Discussing: “Hot Flash! Menopause and You
Kathleen O’Keefe, DPM – Will talk to us about aching feet: “Oh, my Aching Feet! The Medi Pedi and Aesthetic Foot Care

I’m really excited for this tonight and am happy I’m continuing to find interesting events which celebrate women. I will let you know how it goes!

A G-string and a mask?

Tonight I’ll be attending the Harris Center’s 2010 Public Forum held in the Burden Auditorium at the Harvard Business School at 6pm. The Harris Center at Massachusetts General Hospital is ‘dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with eating disorders.’ The forum topic is Health Matters: Weight and Wellness in the World of Fashion. The guest speakers are Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Magazine, Michael Kors, American fashion designer as well as a judge on Lifetime TV’s Project Runway, and Natalia Vodianova, a Russian model and Philanthropist. I am thrilled to be able to go – I was originally on the wait list for this but recently received confirmation of my attendance. I’m sure I will have a lot to say about this tomorrow…

Also, Thursday a few of my girl friends and I are going to the Shecky’s Girls Night Out event at Cyclorama – 539 Tremont Street – Thursday 5-10pm. They are also holding this event Wednesday as well as Friday, however I believe Friday is SOLD OUT. I’ve never been to one of these, but they sound fun! They showcase new Spring trends, new beauty regiments, beer & cocktails (with ticket) and goodie bags.

Some big news today is that President Obama will be signing the $875 billion healthcare reform bill at The White House tomorrow morning. Some people are over-the-moon happy and some people are beyond pissed.

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/03/22/obama-to-sign-health-care-bill-tuesday/

I’m very interested in what everyone thinks about this. Have an opinion? Email me at thedailycraic.wordpress@gmail.com and I will feature some answers later this week.

On a different note, apparently a woman in Hooksett, N.H. was attacked by a man wearing only a G-string and a mask. Pretty creative and heinous all at the same time. I’ll probably have nightmares about this tonight, it sounds even scarier than a Komodo Dragon.

I hope everyone is having a great day thus far :)
