- in asking outrageously intimate questions - in finding the perfect in the imperfect - that self-acceptance is more important than self-improvement - that we are all here with one mission - to be completely who we are and celebrate that - the universe is conspiring to help you

I believe in experiences over things, in tasting menus, sashimi and champagne, in generous tips, in reading 5 books at a time, in Dwell magazine, in multiple orgasms, in taking echinacea even if it doesn't work.

Not enough? Okay.... I also believe in kindred spirits, Anthropologie, Ruby Woo lipstick, wearing my father's wedding ring, pretending I'm a local when visiting Europe and, finally... weeping at the end of The Biggest Loser.
