celeb spotting

Sometimes running does funny things...

So while I was out this lunchtime doing a cheeky five miler testing the new Adidas miCoach Smart Run smartwach I had the most bizarre chance encounter.

I was running through Hyde Park, went to cross the road that runs through the park when a Range Rover swerved to miss another car that had decided to switch lanes without indicating.

The Range Rover in question sounded its horn loudly and almost swerved into me. The driver was doing the best impression of a man with road rage and looked familiar in that way that celebrities make you think they’re old friends. Then I realise who the driver was.

David Beckham. David Beckham nearly ran me over.

TUMBLR. I Met Rupert Grint!!

So I live in America, but was in England for the summer.

I was visiting London, and I could have sworn Rupert Grint had walked past me on the streets of London:

I tell my family not really believing it, and they don’t believe me either. “Go see then If you think it’s him soo much”, they said. But I was to scared to follow after him, and I started to doubt myself.

So we started heading to the American Embassy and in Line outside I see one of the female guards whisper something to another guard. And he shouts really loudly “what Ron Weasily??!!” And she shushes him. AND THATS WHEN I KNOW i saw him.

The question was, is she telling him he’s coming later. Or he’s just been.

SO I tell my parents again and they still think I’m crazy.

So I get inside and sit by the window and stare at everyone who will be coming in.

And after about 10 minutes I SEE HIM heading right past the window into the building. And I know for sure its him. And I quickly showed my parents and they finally believed me.

and within seconds he would be entering the room i was sitting in:

So I’m sat there like this:

And he just walks in all perfect like this:

And I’m like:

And so he sits down and nobody notices him. Nobody.

I couldn’t believe it.

There were spare seats by him and this is all I could think to do.

But then after I sit by him then what? He’d just look at me like:

And I’d be all like :

SO i just sat there trying to think what my plan would be:

Whilst trying not to throw up:

My parents are telling me to go speak to him, and that this is my only chance but I can’t move.

So my mum just starts heading towards him with a pen and paper, whilst im still sat down in shock. And seeing her over there I get a jolt of Courage and bolt up after her but she’s walking back already and shows me she’s gotten him to Sign my name  on the paper! 

But I’m still walking, all alone now, heading towards this beautiful ginger with no idea what to say:

So I finally get to him and just start introducing myself and keep apologizing to him for disturbing him, and I think I handled it pretty cool, and came off quiet normal. Although part of me is thinking I looked alot more like this:

Anyways he said “oh you must be Tiffany” and shook my hand and asked how i was doing.

It was a pretty short conversation, as he got called away for interviewing.

But it was a conversation with Rupert Grint nonetheless!

The horrible part is that you can’t bring anything into the Embassy. No cameras, cell phones ANything. So I couldn’t get a picture with him. 

But I didn’t care at that moment cause I’d just met Ron WEASLEY.

And  for the rest of the day, and week I was like this:

Wanting to tell everybody I passed by.

“Hey I just met Rupert Grint”

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

My first Celeb Spotting and I didn’t faint or anything!!!

youtube

this man is legit awesome

That moment when you decide to go to Magic Kingdom last minute on a Friday night and spot Norman Reedus on space mtn. And secretly wait outside haunted mansion in hopes of spotting him again.

No picture proof bc he was being rushed but it was worth the wait when he came out and turned around to wave & say hi to my sister & I. Night made!!👍🏻

Moments like this make me so glad I’m an AP holder!

Early Lunch at Cafe Gitane

Today Kit and I dined with his sister for an early lunch at Cafe Gitane (242 Mott St Btwn Prince & Houston St)
Always busy and always filled with models and celebs, I wasn’t surprised to see Carlos Leon sitting in the corner. ( For those who don’t know… Madonna + Trainer = Baby Daddy #1 )

I love Gitane. Its Moroccan/French cuisine is always fresh and full of flavor and in the years of coming here I have definitely found a few favorites.

Let’s start with the Avo Toast.
Avocado, Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, Chili Flakes On Seven Grain Toast
Rich and creamy avocado w/ tangy lemon juice and then my favorite thing to add is the fiery red chili oil from their jars of Harissa.

I also love the Hearts of Palm salad, which you can also add organic chicken to. I always feel wonderfully fresh and healthy eating this. It’s light and tangy but has just the right amount of fat from the avocado. ( And yes I add harissa/ chili oil to this too )
Hearts Of Palm, Avocado Orange And Endive Salad, Lemon, Olive Oil And Chili Flakes

Kit ordered the Hachi Parmentier, Organic Ground Beef with mashed potatoes garlic and cream and organic mixed greens. He said that it reminded him of a great plate of comfort food. The creamy mash and beef filling him up well to start the day.

Gitane also has great coffee. We always order lattes and I love their touch of adding a small square of dark chocolate on the side of your cup.
In the morning - Come here for a fruit salad w mint or one of their delicious baked eggs breakfasts.

CASH only.

CELEB SPOTTING ALERT!! OMG GUISE...

I SPOTTED THIS CHICK…

JUST CASUALLY WALKING DOWN THE STREET WITH HER NEW BABY THIS MORNING!

AND IT WASN’T LIKE IN THE CITY ON SWANSTON ST AND I WASN’T EVEN STALKING THE OFFSPRING SET IN FITZROY, IT WAS JUST ON THE STREET WHERE MY SISTER LIVES!!! CELEB SPOTTING WITH MINIMAL EFFORT WHAT MORE COULD I ASK FOR. AND SHE POTENTIALLY LIVES ON THIS STREET….. AND YES, I AM A CREEPY STALKER WHO CONTEMPLATES THESE IDEAS.

(sorry, I’ll stop abusing capslock now…) but seriously I was excited.  And taken kinda off guard… coz I was all nervous about doing this stupid audition, and preoccupied with that, and having to take the tram all by myself in a strange unknown city, so that kind of made my day and made me forget my worries… for a moment… lol

and what’s funny about the whole thing is that since the tram I caught actually goes through Fitzroy, I was like ‘hmmm, maybe after the audition, I’ll just like go over to Fitzroy and be a creepy stalker to see if the Offspring cast are filming today’ (fair bet I thought).  And then a minute or two later I saw Kat Stewart so I was like 'well, i know who won’t be on set’… lol anyway I did this awkward double take when I saw her, she probably thought I was a freak.

She’d be right.
