i've been thinking long and hard about my resolutions for 2012, especially since i keep falling off of the blogging bandwagon. what goals do i have for myself in the new year? 

update my look. in 2012, i will be turning 30 and i think it's about time to start dressing as an adult. ok, i don't entirely mean that. i kinda sorta want to look a little more like an adult. but i would really love to mix the stuff i like with more classic pieces for a fun, more updated look. i love old lady style but i don't want to be an old lady yet.

make art/crafts. and i mean that literally. i just want to make. i would love love love to keep a daily art journal, but that seems way more ambitious than i am ready for. but i guess the benefits of doing that daily would be that i can get rid of all of the crappy stuff floating around in my head and finally get to the good stuff. so for now, i'll settle for making art/crafts daily. 

stay inspired. i want to make sure every day is so inspiring that i just HAVE to make something. i guess this resolution and the one above it go hand in hand.

lose 10 pounds by my 30th bday. i have 6 months. i can do this. (and i don't want to hear the - "you're so skinny, why do you need to lose 10 pounds?!?" questions. i would like to be at a healthier weight for my height. BOOM!)

take more pictures. i have a new camera, i should be playing around with the settings and documenting my life. plus, i want to go back to using my old manual camera as well. lots to take pics of.

blog. because, i really want to blog. i just find that "i have no time" or my internet is so damn slow. but blogging has been great for me to see my progression and so i would like to be better at keeping it up.

stop being so damn shy about what i do / who i am / what i know / how wonderful i am. that's pretty self explanatory.

now i'm off to play some board games, listen to music and have some drinks with my buddies before the ball drops. enjoy your NYE and have a wonderful 2012!!

happy holidays!

in my "i'm-way-behind-on-blogging" anxiety, i forgot to wish all of you some happy holidays! 
do it with a nice sized drink (or shot) and a mustache ring, ok?

just don't do it with tequila. tequila and i broke up a few days ago. waking up to an extreme headache is not my idea of a good time.

my wishlist (kinda sorta)

i love online shopping because you don't have to commit to buying anything and most everything looks amazing. i love scrolling through items and picking out the things i would buy if i had a bottomless wallet of cash and a very large closet. seriously. that would be amazinggggggg.

so here's my kinda sorta wishlist of things i have been scooping out:

because turbans are the new black. duh.

because i need new pens to write with. even though i have a million.

what girl doesn't need a duck crown?!? i would wear this while sitting on my couch reading blogs. seriously.
(i'm bummed it's already sold out!)

if you know me, you know i'm a bit of an astronomy nerd. i love the cosmos. so the idea of wearing the cosmos is even more amazing.

i vow to learn how to sew. there are just too many awesome things i could create that would compliment my crocheting. 

i love to hide my food belly. ok, i don't really have a food belly but when i think i do, i like to hide it. and this dress/shirt thing would do just the trick.

what's on your wishlist? (that i can now add to my wishlist...?!?)

my life lately...

computer and crocheting

damn you, sick tummy.

sick days

i have been home, very sick, for this whole entire week. and not in the "i have a fever and my nose is about to fall off sick" but more of the type of sick where you get stuck in the bathroom several times during the day. TMI? well deal with it. this is what happens when you have cabin fever.

but while i was sick, i was able to look at pretty pictures online and think of things i want to make/buy. my pinterest and tumblr were busy. there are a few updates on there that should make people happy.

and then i came across old love via orchid grey's twitter.

sigh...what great celeb pics of couples that used to be.

some of my favs:

btw--i wish johnny depp and winona ryder would get back together. they were a quirky and cute couple.

week in outfits

i took pics this week! i'm pretty proud of myself...especially since this week was one hell of a week. i'm not sure what was in the water or how full the moon was, but it was so freaking busy/crazy/hectic. there wasn't a single day i didn't go to bed before 12:30, some days i even went to bed at 2am. it was terrible. i need my sleep. and i won't be sleeping this weekend. sad panda.

i tried to look at the camera a little this week and smile (since my sis requested that). eh. not sure i'm feeling it.

this is right before i dropped my camera on the balcony concrete. d'oh. it was not pretty. my friend suggested i get a gorilla tripod and now i really really really really want one. 
shirt - vintage (used to be my mom's), skirt - AA, tights - duane reade (seriously).
 FYI - i didn't wear shoes in this pic because the ones i was going to wear were already at work.

loved this outfit this week. comfy and layered - my 2 favorite reasons for loving the winter.
 skirt - f21, sweater and shirt - h&m, necklace - f21 (got a ton of compliments about this necklace), ring finger ring - my parents gave me that when i was in hs, pointer finger ring - h&m.

awesome wrinkled outfit. seriously, i was super wrinkled. and i refused to iron.
dress - from my sis, turtleneck - h&m, boots - UO, scarf - street vendor.

happy friday!

i missed thanksgiving? whoops....

i'm thankful for a lot.
