blogging break...?

with the upcoming holidays, friends visiting, a new year starting, i've decided to take a mini break from blogging to get things right.

i have an outfit post that i definitely should be doing before the week is up...but other than that, i probably won't blog again till 2010. i have a long list of people i need to catch up with (you all know who you are), plus a sketchbook to complete, 2 of my great great friends are visiting as well as my step niece, i'm going away for a few days, AND i still have presents to finish up.

in the meantime, i wanted to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS! whatever you celebrate, have a wonderful and healthy time.

oh--and btw--i shut down my etsy shop. i am rethinking this process...and will be taking orders of headbands and art work via email. i'm also thinking about how to make my blog better--new layout, pics, etc.

i'll see all of you in 2010!!

this week, overall, was stressful but ok. everything worked out, that's what really matters. i wasn't completely happy with my outfits from this week but it's interesting to see them in pics. and then this weekend was super laid back--spent time just sleeping, watching that beyonce movie "obsessed" and then decorating the house for christmas!

here's my creepy pic of the week (i was totally playing around with functions on my

bad habits...

maxwell's "bad habits" has been playing on repeat all week on my ipod.
i was trying to figure out what it is about the song that makes it so damn sexy.
his voice...?
the instrumentals...?
the sax...?
whatever it is, damn, i am addicted to this song for it's sexiness. and you won't catch me saying that about any song...i'm picky about what i find to be as sexy as this song...

tomorrow i'll be posting my outfits for the week. sorry for the sporadic/crazy/random posts lately. been so stressed out with work, my dog, being sick, life. i woke up this morning and realized i desperately need to relax so i don't allow this cold to take over my life.
stress is just not a good look.
especially since i want to look young as long as possible!
today starts my pledge to get back on my stress-free mood...

secret secret

sometimes, the post secrets are interesting to read. sometimes i relate to one...or two.

but something about this week's post secret post really touched me...

...either because i've had a conversation with friends over the topic, or it's a fear of my own, or i think one of my friend's sent the postcard in.

this week in outfits

this post is a little late...and i can't blame it on thanksgiving.

last week my dog got really sick and i needed to take her to the animal ER. turns out she ate something she shouldn't have and needed surgery. tuesday-wednesday were the craziest and emotional days i've experienced in a long time.

happily, she's home now. i brought her back on friday and she's recovering here with me.

anyway, so last week's outfits:

monday i wore this fun dress i got from P .
details: dress - marc jacobs, sweater, belt & tights - h&m, boots - p's

details: skirt - old navy, turtleneck - h&m, tights - target, sweater - no brand, boots  - no brand, scarf & glasses- street vendor

details: dress - target, tights - h&m, shoes - dsw
yes, i straightened by hair for thanksgiving thanks to my mom.

anyway, did everyone enjoy their thanksgiving? i slept a whole lot, ate a whole lot and then slept a whole lot more. i've also been obsessively watching "big love" seasons 1 and 2. i think i'll be done with it tonight. great great show.

anyway, i hope this week will be good...although i already know it's going to be stressful. happy end of the weekend!

tuesday was all about red. and lots of layers. a dress over a skirt and a sweater on top of that!
outfit details - sweater: banana republic, dress: old navy, skirt: old navy, tights and the bow: h&m, belt: ?

this outfit was totally inspired by delightfully tacky , who was inspired by another blogger...grr, i can't remember who.
outfit details - dress: old navy, sweater and turtleneck - h&m, scarf - uo, tights - no brand, shoes - payless, belt - my mom's.

forgot to mention i saw new moon yesterday and i am totally TEAM JACOB! sorry ladies--edward is just too boring.

ok, i love granny chic

i have to admit it.
i love it.
and i told P the other day that i wanted a granny-type coat...which she didn't understand.
but i guess i meant that i want a coat that i can get lost in, feel comfy in, and feel like a granny!
