just can't get enough.

So I've been thinking... a girl [or just I] can never have too many:

White camisoles/tank tops, preferably long enough to layer when paired with leggings.

Black leggings. Or just leggings in general. I've recently become a fan of the equestrian-inspired ones!

Boots. Boots. Boots. & Lots of 'em!!
Not to mention how badly I want the tights in the last picture...

E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadows

ChapStick in Spearmint = phenomenal!

Smell-goods... as I like to call them. Candles, reed diffusers, B&BW Wallflowers, spices. You name it. A room that satisfies that ol' olfactory bulb is essential!

Scrumptious scarves-- I absolutely love scarves this time of year. The twisted scarf & infinity scarf are some of my favorites!

Turquoise. Looks good with almost everything! I love neutrals during the fall/winter, & turquoise is one of my favorite ways to add some color!

Comfy pants. Enough said!!

I've recently bought these Daphne bracelets from 31bits in every color!! I love them!!

A few things I hope...
...that everyone had a very merry Christmas with their loved ones.
...that everyone is ready to ring in the new year, because it's almost here!!! Happy one!

Resolution Schmesolution

Well, Y2K10 is officially coming to an end. You know what that means! New Year's resolutions! My skin crawls at the thought of trying to think of a self-help "goal" on a time restraint. You mean I have to come up with a habit breaking or habit forming [thing] that will ultimately make me "a better person" by the end of 2011? Talk about pressure! I found where I had written a few NYR's in my journal from this past year:

1. Stop popping knuckles.
I may not pop my fingers as often, but I pop my wrists every. single. morning. And my elbows.

2. Don't impulse buy.
I can practically hear you laughing at me. Stop it.

3. Work out 2x/week (+).
The fact that I put (+) at the end to indicate "or more" really chaps my ego... as if I thought biweekly was for the birds or something.

Writing a recap blog post of the whole year is nearly impossible. I think [0ne of] my 2011 NYR's is to journal more- to take 10 minutes at the end of each day to write a quick note to myself. A quote from that day, a thought, a frustration, a prayer. I used to keep a hefty diary back in high school and somewhat during the past year and a half or so. If you know me, you know my tendency to forget a lot of things. I'm a documenter. I remember things through pictures, journal entries, blog posts, tweets, wall-to-wall posts. I have a lonely blank journal on my bedside table that I should start writing in...

...Maybe I'll get to that next year.

I love this quote. I guess if I can't do much, I can treat people with love. That is step 1. ..}
