A dream come true

While I was in Houston I went and did something I always wanted to do but for some reasons never thought I could do. I met my favorite blogger.

When I knew I was going to Houston, I thought that I had to try to meet Reiko from God's Favorite shoes. I love her, her blog, her sense of humor and her style. Reiko's blog is the only one I check on a daily basis and I get mad when she has not posted anything new. There were days I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and reading her would brighten me up. And although there are some things she wears I would never try on myself (that girl is bold), I still appreciate her style and often goes to her for inspiration.

Feeling that way, I had to meet her. I knew it would be tricky since she is busy. But what did I have to lose by asking? So I wrote to her and she was kind enough to meet me.

And let me tell you, she was everything that I expected her to be and even more. She was stylish as usual pairing mustard men's short with super high heels and arm candy. We started talking about a lot of things: blogging, fashion, shopping, family...I felt like I was talking to an old friend I have not met in years. Reiko was just as genuine, as real as she was in her blog. And I was surprised to find that she resembles me in so many ways.
I had a great time with her and I just wished I could have spent more time with her. I left her feeling light and happy and so inspired. She is just the kind of person that lift you up and I need more of her kind in my life. I need her in my life.

 I can now strike meet with Reiko off my bucket list. Next step, be part of Reiko's entourage, move from cyber stalker to real life stalker (just kidding Reiko). If for some reason, you do not know Reiko's blog yet (which I doubt coz she is very famous in the fashion blogosphere, or at least the one I check), check her at Godsfavoriteshoes.blogspot.com. You will not be disappointed.

I stole this pic from Reiko. I had planned on taking pics with her but I was so starstruck that I forgot about it. Thank GOD, she managed to take one of us.

OMG! I am speechless that you said so many kind words! I'm so glad we were able to meet and chat! I was a thrill for me as well!

And I thank you again for the gift! I can't wait for it to be cooler so I can do it justice!
