The London Times has an insane article written by Kate Spicer, who starved herself down to a Size Zero to see how it felt. She ended up doing some major damage to her body and also her psyche, reporting that even after losing over 20 lbs, she still felt like she could lose more. Maybe the most telling line in the story is this: "Even though my head was a mess my female friends all thought I looked great when I was at my thinnest." She goes on to say that if she didn't have to work, she would consider taking the time and the mental energy she usually uses to write and channel it into her thinness. Would you?
Dear Kelly Cutrone, You're My Idol
I am not ashamed to admit that I’m a huge Kelly Cutrone fan. At Britt’s recommendation I read her book, which I loved, and Mondays are much harder to get through now that I don’t have Kell On Earth to look forward to. (Even though we still get to see her lay the smackdown on Roxy and Olivia every now and again on The City). So when I heard that the PR maven herself would give a free lecture on Wednesday afternoon, I knew that I had to attend, since she never fails to provide me with an overwhelming surge of girl power.
