The photo above is of self and Llana, self’s niece and 1/2 of the fab creative team of LLAVA, which just came out with their first line of tops.  Self is wearing the $30 grey top, isn’t it SUCH A STEAL???  Self never felt so glam!  Even after 2 hours of eating, she still felt slim in this top!

Here’s a link to the top self is wearing, in a darker grey.  And here’s the LLAVA Facebook page.

The eating continues.  Self must have gained five lbs. today.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
