'Let me Upgrade ya'

So, I've mentioned it a few times before but my boyfriends birthday is coming up! I think I've finally figured out what to do, and what to get him. 

On the what to get him, I think I need a little help sorting through my choices. There are a bunch of cd's a dvd's i'm ordering through amazon too!

I'm only getting him a few things off of this list just because all of the other plans are eating up my birthday planning budget! Help me pick one of the above? hmm?

Happy Shopping to me!

An Ode to Ali.

I'm always being told I look like other people. A lot actually, sometimes I wish someone would just say I look like me already! I actually think I look like the spitting image of my mother in her early 20's. She doesn't like me saying that because well, lets just say she doesn't look like that anymore? Don't get me wrong, I love my momma and I think she's beautiful inside and out... she just maybe doesn't agree. 
Okay, okay.. i'll move on. Back to the original reason for today's post, Ali McGraw! This is the first person people tell me I look like that I actually agree with. Well , maybe it's just I think she's pretty and I only hope I'm an ounce as beautiful as she.

I'm always interested to know why people even think that. Frankly, I think maybe it's just the brows.
 Question: Who do you all think you look like. or mahybe have even been told so?

Me! (well, duh)
Well, I guess that's enough pointless vanity for the day. I have to get back to planning my boyfriends birthday party! He's turning 27!

Short and Sweet

It's raining again in Monterey, but i like it. I'm keeping today short and sweet because I'm watching a movie. I came across something today & I wanted to ask everyone about it. What do you think of clear clothing? I saw a really amazing clear rain coat in a magazine last year, i can't remember who made it though. It jewels and things all over  certain parts if my memory serves me correctly. Well, today while doing my daily online "window shopping" i saw this clear trench at Topshop and it totally jogged my memory. Yes, or no on the clear? hmmm?

Lazy Monday.

This weekend was finally a relaxing one. Went out to my old work for dinner on Saturday and spent the whole day at home for once on Sunday. It was wonderful!


So while browsing the internet I came across these pictures and I really want to re-create one of these. These are all by a man named James Hopkins. I love how at first glance it's just a normal shelf. The longer you stare you begin to realize all the perfectly placed object. Hey, It's a skull! I really want to do something similar!

I'm pretty sure I've been dreaming of this dress from TOP SHOP. I just can't decide what color I like more! Maybe some help is in order?!?!

(I know these are really small picture. whoops!) Here's the link, help me pick one!

Well, Happy Trails Everyone!

 This week has been crazy in California. There has been a number of storms, Tornado warnings ( so weird), power outages, flash floods and that's just a few things. I'm actually enjoying it because I've only had to deal with the wind and rain, and that can be fun sometimes. My only problem is that I hate pants. So, i've been trying my hardest to dress as warmly as possible but still feel they way want to.

My boyfriends 27th birthday is coming up in a few weeks. I'm really having a hard time deciding what to get for him. I was thinking a few CD's he's been hinting towards and a new jacket or something. For some reason it seems so lame? Is it just me or is that too generic? I'm so bad at this.

Work recently has been really strange for me. Even though Christmas is now over... that's exactly what I'm designing for. I'm not sure if like. I seem to still be dreaming of sugar plums and nutcrackers when i wish i was..... of anything else!!

Here are a few things i've been drooling over the last few days:

I'm not sure what i love more about this Elliot lookbook. The clothes, or that adorable model!

I'm pretty excited for spring 2010 at H&M .
I would probably buy all of that!

I just thought this was really adorable. Chanel Iman in Vogue Germany.

Gone Go-Go for GA-GA

This isn't new news by any means. It's not exactly original either... BUT I'm totally obsessed with Lady GAGA! I always told myself i hated her music, she was stupid, yada-yada -yada. Well, i guess i can only fool my pop loving self for so long! My love for her has now turned into an almost obsession with the huge pop princess. Move over Brittney, Beyonce, and Christina... There's a new bitch on the block... and she even dresses better than you!

I'm still trying to figure out what it is exactly that has me stuck in her orbit, but whatever it is its one strong pull. I think maybe what is so alluring is her creative mindset, control over her new found fame (or monster) and the fact she doesn't seem to give a shit about what most people think of her. Either way, I'm go-go.

flash back

Well, just to Christmas! I got a few photos from this year at my boyfriends family's house. The holidays extremely enjoyable this year due to the fact I had more than one day off for the first time in 4 years!

My boy and myself.

With his adorable niece Kailey

I think it was too early for genuine smiles.
( damn me, I already ruined that blazer!)

Sunday, in a nut shell.

My boyfriend is amazing. The end.

4 1/2 years and counting.

don't get fat, eat NOTHING!

So it's Friday and I should be really looking forward to it, but today is just not my day. So instead I'm looking up funny random things online ! I think this item may take the cake! They even come in different flavors. I love this.
"Slim Chips

Slim Chips are good and they contain no calories. Instead of getting fat you can now eat paper with different flavors. It's like eating tasty air. The Slim Chips are made out of edible paper and pure organic tastes."
The best thing is there is a whole site for this! This guys has a lot of other projects going on i would check him out.  SLIM CHIPS

Outfit post Virgin no more.

Today was such a beautiful day I decided it was a great day for my first outfit post! Well, at least I'm excited! I realized once I put these on the computer my boyfriend didn't take quite as many as I though so I opted for these iffy ones. Oh well, at lest he was willing!

For those who don't know me this is my little baby, Bella. Greg (my boyfriend), gave her to me about 3 months after we got together. Since I am at work at the moment i think i should get back to it! I hope everyone is having a great 15th day of 2010!

" Old man, look at my life. 24 and there's so much more."

Happy Thursday Everyone!

This week has been going by great. I hope the rest of you can say the same. Work has been super busy this week. As some of you may know i work for a textile company (if you didn't, now you do!). Right now its been really stressful trying to meet out deadlines, but I think everything will fall into place.

So i've been listening to a lot of Neil Young this week, its really making me wish it was summer already. Summer is my favorite time of year to get dressed. I love all the short shorts, cropped tops, flowing flowery dresses...  i could go on forever. I was looking at UO early spring catalog online the other day and i wish i could buy almost everything on there.

Here are a few of my favs:

all items from UO
