New crush

I just returned from a trip to Atlanta, Georgia (USA) - still suffering from jet lag, which really feels like a hangover without the party before. Atlanta, in my humble opinion, is not a great tourist city although it has some very interesting spots:

- The Coca Cola Museum (or World of Coca Cola) is quite a bit of fun, walking through the marketing machine's history, one cannot help but to salivate after a tall glass of that fascinating drink - with lots of ice. The really cool bit about this place is that you get to taste Coca Cola company products from all over the world. Quite an experience.
- The CNN centre is another good place to stop off, interesting shops with an unbelievable long (and high) escalator. I wouldn't recommend the tour, unless your thing is watching a few minutes of every CNN channel available while walking through the building - not my thing, anyway.

Managed to rub shoulders with the 'locals' at a hockey game - Atlanta Thrashers are the home team. Quite a culture shock for a non-sports fan such as myself but loads of fun. I thought it'd be easy to follow, you know, aim the puck at the opposing goal, end of story. But they kept switching and stopping and it all went so fast...anyone able to explain this game to me, apply within. To be perfectly honest though, I really was only there for the giant hotdogs and beer!

But my real crush is a new one, thanks to the fab shopping at the Lenox Square mall (Calvin Klein sale might still be on if you hurry!). I was in absolute shoe heaven and found the most amazing pair of heels by Steve Madden who is my bestest most favourite shoe designer of the moment. I was browsing the (extensive) selection at Macy's when my eye caught this pair of drop-dead-gorgeous brightly coloured beauties that look like a cross between f***-me shoes and a pair of old style roller skates - the kind glittery, scantily glad girls would wear in the rink while wearning knee pads and dancing to disco music. They were mine and I would have them and so I did - trying them on I could SWEAR I heard strains from ABBA somewhere.

I'll battle jet lag for those babies any time ...
