WORLD PREMIERE: My Birthday Suit...NOT!

When she first heard of this 3-course meal, truffles and wine in Chocolate Fire for two last month, Claire had me in mind as the perfect date. She can't expect her boyfriend to be equally eager for a potential death by chocolate. Or any important man in her life for that matter. If you can point us to a straight guy with insatiable hunger for chocolates in any form, please let us know.

So she invited me and, as predictable as it may sound, I made one of the easiest decision I ever made in my life. I even hypnotized her so she'll agree to sink our teeth into these mouthwatering meals on my actual birthday, November 9th. Little did I know I'll end up having a boyfriend a few days before my natal return who insisted we spend the night twogether, so I made a last-minute request if we can move our trip to this chocolate paradise one day earlier. Luckily, Claire can't say to no to the birthday girl.

Knowing that I will spend the first few hours of my birthday in the workplace, I decided to wear something new (technically, it's somebody else's pre-owned clothing) today. And I only had one outfit in mind: the flashy blue top my friend MJ loved to call "the J.Lo outfit", leggings and black wedges. I know it would look lovelier if I donned boots instead, but I am yet to meet the perfect pair. Please bear with me.
