In 1853 New York, there was a very picky customer and a very grumpy chef. The customer demanded that his potatoes be cut thinner and fried longer. Furious, the chef cut them very thin, fried them fro ages and covered them in salt. The customer asked for more. Hooooray! The crisp chip was born.
Christopher Columbus was an explorer lookng for Asia. But in 1492 he sailed the wrong way and ended up in an entirely different continent. Happily for him, he didn’t realize at the time and announced, quite smugly, that here he was in Asia. And so it was that America was discovered.
If someone, at some stage hadn’t made a mistake the world wouldn’t have Coca Cola or frisbees, popsicles or chips, penicillin, cheese, slinky-dinks, or America!
Don’t worry if you make a mistake. Sometimes our biggest mistakes are our best inventions.

BRILLIANT! I dedicate this to all our PP girls who beat themselves up like Jemma does after simple mistakes and act like it’s the end of the world, when really, who the frick cares?
The site is by organization that is trying to change the world one action at a time / per person. It’s cool stuff, especially since we PP girls strongly believe in making the world a better place (GO GREEN!!) because we need our grandchildren’s grandchildren to be alive to buy us our Versace purses or our million dollar Baroda pearls, or whatever luxury stuff that grannies buy (a $4.5 million dollars silk, Persian, 500 years old rug maybe?).

but PinkPoutine can’t get because it’s a tad over budget. errrm just a tad, how about $5,684USD over?
We assume only Paris Hilton would slurge on such a pinky pink 5 grand purchase.
But it’s okay to dream….. and to print the picture out, cut it into shape and stick it on the surface of your blackberry right?
Check out all the expensive goodies at the Pricy Spicy site!

Holy muther fuckerrr.. our beloved Nicole Richie has twitter! uhhh.. SO following. This is probably the best thing to happen after the invention of text messages (very random).
– love jemma.
Date: Feb, 2006 (when the brand first launched)
Setting: Aritzia, Vancouver (sold exclusively at)
Key Event: Jemma laid eyes on Wilfred for the very first time and immediately fell in love
Reason: Wilfred’s Cashmere & Virgin Wool Coat (in every color)
Wilfred is an in-house clothing brand sold exclusively at the Vancouver based retail store and the designer behind this brilliancy is Tenille Magnuson (age 23 – 35 with a career based mind but creative and style conscious, just like her targeted customers). She is also the brain juice behind the Talbula Babaton line – one designer for two lines in the same store? No worries, there are visible differences between the two, Wilfred is more tailored towards our fashion-forward girlies whereas Talula is more on the professional side,, fashion forward it is!
Recently (like a few days ago), they launched a website for this baby. I love Wilfred, he’s the best and you got to see it to believe it. His looks are great for any body shape and are incredibly comfy and can be dressed up or down. God, so many perfect qualities, I might even marry him.
