Basically, it’s a blog of cute little inspirational illustrations by a young woman named Joanna Alberti. The name puns on her main character’s name Sophie. Her main business is a line of greeting cards featured around Sophie and her fun, entrepreneurial, and distinctly girly life. The illustrations that go up on the blog, however, are a good way to get a dose of the inspiration without having to buy the cards ;) One of my favorites is featured here.
Since Joanna is a young woman entrepreneur herself, I’m sure Sophie must be somewhat autobiographical. According to the philoSophie website, Sophie is… You! “Witty, confident, compassionate and fun! You love being yourself and true to your values.” I would add that Sophie is a can-do business savvy girl who is doing things Cashmere Mafia style (RIP).
Okay so I’m a little late in the game for this but after getting up to date on the entire season for this season, I’m not impressed with either.
They’re both about successful women in New York who have to juggle their career and their lives. It’s hard work and there never seems to be a break for any of them but they pull through. Go figure! The twists have been interesting but for the most part predictable – you can always tell there’s going to be more drama and the general idea of what it is.
While I enjoy watching it, there’s nothing in particular that says “this is better than Sex and the City”. If anything, it’s just the New York version of Desperate Housewives. I know it’s hard to live up to the SATC name, they could have tried a little hard than my husband thinks he’s inferior and wants to sleep with other women. It may be real life problems but last time I checked, there were more problem than that. You can say I’m too young to understand but I loved SATC and they went into their 40’s.
If it wasn’t for the fashion, I would have already given up.
