I came up with the idea for this card back in September when I was watching a documentary on John Lennon. Since this year John would have been 70 and "Happy Christmas" is my favorite holiday song, I thought this would be perfect for our 2010 Christmas card. Obvisously, Jimmy made a better Yoko than me and I really appreciate how he was willing to put on a wig and a fur coat for our picture! Well, I had a wonderful Christmas and I hope you and your loved ones did as well!

Ryan Gosling has been my favorite actor for quite some time now, so I was beyond excited to see these two previews. Having Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams as his beautiful leading ladies, is an added bonus, because they are two of my favorites as well. It is amazing how Kirsten looks just as young and fresh as she did nearly 10 years ago in The Virgin Suicides, and Michelle is as stunning as ever! If you want to see some truly swoon-worthy performances, go rent The Notebook, Half Nelson, and Lars and the Real Girl right now.

Peep Toe, All Saints, Matthew Williamson, Moschino, Alexander McQueen, Moschino, Hot Topic, Louis Vuitton, Peep ToeHello all! I hope you had the happiest of Thanksgivings. So I'm back in business, sort of. I decided to get a much wanted iPad for my birthday to replace my defunct laptop. It seemed like the ideal plan because I've been dying for one and I could simply connect it to my boyfriends Mac. Well to my horror, I found out that the iPad and Blogger aren't exactly compatible so now I have to blog via email and I don't know how much I like this. I'm hoping this will work out and come on Blogger, let's get it together because iPad is the best thing that has happened to bloggers because how else are you going to be so discrete when you are supposed to be doing actual "work" at work?
On to the clutches, which I would love to have accompanying my party dresses this holiday season. Have any of you Gossip Girl fans noticed the fabulous box clutches Ms. Serena has been carrying this season? They're almost as exciting as the re-ignited flame that has sparked between Chuck and Blair. Almost, but not quite.

Hello babies, long time no blog. I still don't have a computer and I can't get my old computer to come on to retrieve all of my photos and music, so I am a little bummed. Anyway, I wanted to share my Halloween pics. My boyfriend and I went as baby vamp Jessica and the devilish but oh so good looking Eric Northman from True Blood. Getting my look together was pretty easy because I already have the red hair and pale skin, but for extra measures I grew out my bangs all of October for a more authentic Jessica look. Obviously Jimmy is not tall and blond, but with the signature Eric track jacket and black wife beater I think he made a nice Asian Eric. We had a blast biting everyone and I can't wait for next years costumes! Oh btw, don't you think that Alexander Skarsgard and Debra Ann Woll would make a cute couple in real life? Check out that body language!

To celebrate the coming of October, I thought that I would share one of my all time favorite movies, the incredible thriller, Rosemary's Baby. If you haven't seen it I urge you now to get up from the computer and go rent it immediately! Not only is it a brilliant film, but it is also visually stunning and filled with some of the best 60's fashion and home decor. Throughout the film Mia Farrow sports the most swoonworthy babydoll dresses and adorable flats making me excited about one day being preganant just for the clothes alone. Oh, and her Manhattan apartment is absolutly to die for with wood floors, high ceilings with crownmolding, crisp white walls, and every room is adorned with bright yellow accents. How I would love to have Rosemary's life, except for the whole being pregant with Satan's baby part! Below are some things that I think the modern-day Rosemary would enjoy.
Purple flats by Salvatore Ferragamo, Carey Mulligan beautifully modeling Mia Farrow's iconic haircut, velvet baby doll dress from ASOS.com, white Valentino coat dress, pendant necklace by Lovelinks, rooms with yellow accents found at DecorPad.com

Oh, and the dress I am wearing once was a huge moo-moo that I got for $2.00! Thanks to the magic of my seamstress it became a beautiful mini dress. Unfortunately,it is a little too mini and I had to wear shorts underneath it. Oh well.
I don't know about you, but nothing delights me more than receiving a thank you note or a post card in the mail rather than irritating bills and worthless coupons. When it comes to this enjoyable mail I get a thrill out of giving as much as receiving. It is one of my personal rules to to always send thank you notes, but unfortunately the cutest stationary tends to be a little on the pricey side. My solution to this problem is to simply make my own. For the above cards I made my monogram on Microsoft Word and got the background pictures from magazine ads and weheartit.com. I hand cut and pasted the template for the cards and Xeroxed them at Kinko's. It was pretty easy, but I do need to work on my cutting skills. I use a Martha Stewart paper cutter, but the lines of the initials and the edges of the card don't line up exactly and that kind of bothers me. Oh well, I will keep on creating and work on my precision.
