So long 2010.  I hope everyone has made a long list of new years resolutions. Or at least one. This is my list. 

Read six books. This may not seem like a lot to many people, but I have been working on the same book for about four months now. So six seems like a good goal.
Learn French. Those two years in high school don't really count.
Tell people how I feel. Sometimes this is a problem for me. But I'm working on it.
Pay off all of my parking tickets, car, and credit cards. Less clothes, more bills.
Become a vegan. This is my most far fetched resolution. I am a vegetarian, but I love cheese. 

Thats it. Simple, yet realistic.
I hope 2011 brings amazing times, endeavors, friendshipssuccesses, and memories. 
It will be over before we know it.
Best of luck.

shoes. shoes. shoes.

I have a slight shoe obsession. These are on my wish list. There are far too many pairs of Jeffrey Campbell's that I'm after, but let's face it, he is monopolizing the shoe industry. Hope you find some suggestions, or at least some new shopping sites.

A.P.C. Madras "Ballerine" $225

Jeffrey Campbell "Areas" Boot $159

when we first met.

So happy to see that Hellogoodbye is back. And better then ever.
 Forrest and Chelsea were married this summer. I love this video, featuring the newlywed couple. See their adorable wedding pictures below.

pretzels and puppies.

We adopted this little guy yesterday. 
I'm in love.

And then it was time for our yearly pretzel dipping. Home made caramel, milk chocolate, coconut, almonds, candy cane, and more. YUM.

Happy Holidays.

rainy days.

So much rain in Los Angeles lately. I had to capture such a rare thing.


this is as jolly as i get.

This is the result of the smallest amount of holiday cheer, a lack of creative stimulation, and an abundance of time.

And this is what my room looked like for a solid two weeks. 
Which also explains why many of the snowflakes on the wall are crumpled and disfigured.

Each snowflake was made of about six magazine pages. It looks complex but is really quite simple to make.

lets hear it for the girls.

Lets give a little more recognition to female musicians.
 I feel like so many are under rated or unrecognized. 
Here are a few of my favorites. 

regina spektor.
A russian songer/songwriter/pianist.
She has the most amazing voice and witty lyrics.

 maria mena.
This Norwegian pop-artist has an amazing story to tell.
You may remember her single "You're the Only One" circa 2004. Maybe not.

 ingrid michaelson.
You've probably heard this nerdy indie-pop singer/songwriter on various television shows and had the song stuck in your head for days. Just buy her album already.

 alanis morisette.
Even though she's not so relevant anymore, Jagged Little Pill plays in my car on a weekly basis. It's like teen angst, but for women.

 tegan & sara.
My favorite Canadian indie rock twins. With the catchiest beats, most relatable lyrics, and those distinguishable voices, they are simply the best.

hayley williams.
Hayley proves that little girls can rock. And she keeps getting better. I hope Paramore stays together forever.


zooey deschanel.
Wow, an actress turned musician scenario that isn't disastrous. Listening to She & Him (made up of Zoeey and M. Ward) just warms my little heart. She also gets bonus points for being married to musical genius, Ben Gibbard. 

Former vocalist and pianist of indie-pop quartet, The Hush Sound, Greta recently began a solo project, Gold Motel. She just has the sweetest voice.

gwen stefani.
No explanation necessary. All I have to say is that I can not wait for the new No Doubt album to come out next year. It has been far too long.

florence welch.
Better known as Florence + the Machine, this Brit has such an amazingly powerful voice. Her unique sound and style is so refreshing. Brilliant Florence, just brilliant.

 meg & dia frampton.
Some may call them a sweeter version of Tegan & Sara, but there should be no comparison between these two completely different artists. The sisters plus three additional band members create Meg & Dia's angelic and harmonic sound.

black swan.

see this movie. see this movie. see this movie. 

we heart it.

I love this site. It's similar to many inspirational blogs, but you can collect the photos that you like by putting them in your "heart".

See the things I heart at

an imaginary world.

Swedish mixed media artist, Johan Thornqvist, takes real life photos and creates illustrations of imaginary cities on top of them. I am in love with these. Click here to order prints.
