New Year, Same Lady

hair piece: store in England
sequin blouse: thrifted
shorts: AB surf shop
tights: marshalls
Cynthia Rowley heels: gift
vintage shoe clips: yard sale
elephant ring: gift 

With New Years Eve tomorrow, I've got a couple of resolutions on the mind.  I was very proud of myself because last year I completely gave up eating meat (with the exception of seafood) and I managed to stick to it and will continue to do so this year.  Here is a list of my resolutions for 2011:
  • But all local produce and seafood
  • Sew more often
  • Befriend my treadmill again
  • Stop eating junk food & cook/bake for myself&others 
  • Lose myself in books 
  • Get organized
  • Have more adventures
  • Become magical
So that's the start of them, I will probably be updating and adding to them, but for now I'll keep 'em short and sweet.  Boy, 2010 went by really fast, I can hardly believe Christmas is over and I'll soon be starting my final Spring semester at CCC.  Overall 2010 has been really good to me.  I took three big trips to England, Florida and California, and some little road trips visiting friends at college.  I figured out where I want to transfer (now if I could just make the time to apply).  Made some truly exceptional new friends.  And I even got a lead role in The Sound of Music which will go up in January.  While I'm excited for the new year, I also don't like the feeling that my life is passing me by.  Some days I just want to use a Time Turner and go back and enjoy certain moments of my life again. 

See you in the New Year!

Dandy bowtie.

I love the masculine fashion that has been slowly making its way on to more feminine silhouettes.  I decided to try my had at it today by adding a bow tie to my outfit.  I was inspired by the lovely and talented Janelle Monae.  I find her look refreshing and her jazzy hip hop music delightful.  I am looking forward to the Christmas break so much! I have one more exam and then I'm free, well free till the new year.     

One of my favorite Christmas ornaments from childhood.

Christmas Can Cure Anything.

My Life in a [Chest]nut Shell:
12 Dozen cookies
11 Hundred light bulbs
10 Plus 10 days till Christmas
9 Hours of studying
8 Days of classes left
7 Days a week of rehearsal
6 Ethnographer band members
5 Different classes
4 Naps a day
3 Christmas shows
2 Research papers
....And a blog post filled with too much Christmas!

So lately I've been kinda busy, this weekend we had "Christmas with the Sound of Music."  A variety show of different Christmas numbers and some from the actual show.  The director basically wanted to give a little taste of whats to come in January. Also classes are finishing up (hurray!) but that means lots of unfinished paperwork...  Still I'm really excited for the holiday break.  The house and yard are completely decorated to the nines, the weather is turning chilly, and I've been listening to Christmas music nonstop.  Also you may have noticed I cut about six inches off my hair and dyed it. Just something new for the upcoming new year.
