My 2011 Favorites

I just cracked up reading my list of favorites from 2010.  So much has changed… and so much has stayed the same. 1.  Books.  One of my unannounced goals of 2011 was to finish 52 books over the course of the year.  I had no idea how in love I would become with books.  I…

NYE Outfits

I know, I know… it’s tomorrow night.  But these outfits can (mostly) be thrown together last minute depending on your plans.  Or, you know, you can always make an “emergency” trip to the mall. Even though it’s easy to imagine yourself at some glamourous party, there are so many different ways to ring in the…

thank you

Have you sent out your Thank You notes after Christmas (or Hanukkah)?  It’s okay, I won’t tell on you if you haven’t yet!!! But now is most definitely the time!!!  I always go to a local stationery store to pick up a pack or two.  This year I went with grey + yellow chevron.  Kind…

I love to paint.  There’s something super relaxing about sitting down and zoning out and just painting.  Unfortunately, I don’t have much time at school to paint.  (And frankly, I don’t bring paints to school so I don’t get distracted and paint instead of study!) I sat down this week to paint a few Christmas-y…

College Prepster Playlist No. 2

I’m home on Christmas break… and I’m still completely stressed out.  What is wrong with me???  Basically, I need to chilllllllllll out.  The only thing that is seeming to work at the moment is blocking out all the noise in the house (and my head) by listening to a fun playlist.  Here’s the second one of…
