Goals for 2011: A Visual

13 Jan

This week I flew to LA to spend a day with my boyfriend and his family, and then he and I drove out to school for the start of classes. As I figure out which ones I want to keep and which to drop (I’m thinking those 9ams are going to have to go…) I also, albeit belatedly, have been thinking about what else I want to try in 2011. I guess you could say these are “resolutions,” but I prefer to think of them as goals? Anyway, I decided that looking at pictures is just so much for fun and visceral than reading lengthy rants, so here’s a little collage featuring my new year’s resolutions. I’ll be checking in on them periodically here on my blog so you can follow how well I’m doing :) Also, if I write them down and display them publicly maybe that will motivate me to stay on top of everything!

New Years Resolutions

1. Actually make it to the Rec Center this semester. Seriously, my university has one of the newest, nicest gyms in the nation and I’ve never even set foot in the thing. Whoopsies. I’m going to pay for a cardio and a yoga class up front so I’ll feel guilty about wasting money if I don’t go.

2. Order dessert more often. This goes hand in hand with the working out resolution.

3. Continue learning how to cook. (Moving out of dorms + brand new townhouse = beautiful kitchen… and I don’t think my roommates realize anything exists in that part of the house other than the refrigerator, so, it’s all mine.)

4. Splurge on something luxurious I’ve always wanted, I’ll enjoy it more now than I would waiting until later. Some contenders: Tory Burch ballet flats, a Longchamp totebag, and Tiffany’s pearl earrings. Also shown, Chanel handbag, but that’s in the “yeah, in your dreams” category. Continue reading

I won something!

2 Jan

Happy new year everyone! I’m still somewhat in break mode but I promise I will get back to posting regularly soon. While catching up on e-mail after coming home from my week-long family vacation, I was happily surprised by an e-mail from Jessica of What I Wore telling me that I won herĀ FEED USA and GAP giveaway! I am beyond excited about the new totebag which I received in the mail just the other day. Here is how I styled it for going out to lunch with old friends today (we even got to sit outside in the 65 degree weather):

What I’m wearing: American Apparel winter leggings, Target tank top, JCrew cardigan, Charming Charlie’s scarf, vintage earrings and ring, Banana Republic bracelet (a Hanukkah gift from the boyfriend :) Continue reading
