Party Like It's 2012

I know I will be.
(& end of the world).
[le love]
Not exactly a party playlist, but my most current favorites to kick of the new year.

Cosmic Love- Florence & the Machine
Sing Theresa- Greg Laswell
A Salty Dog- Procol Harum
I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked- Ida Maria
(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To- Weezer**
Friday On My Mind- The Easybeats
Breakable- Ingrid Michaelson
My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year)- Regina Spektor

**- youtube the version of Weezer featuring Sara Bareilles, it's my favorite jam out song of the moment

I am currently reading...
Jane Eyre- Charlotte Bronte
Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood- Koren Zailckas
Fast Food Nation- Eric Schlosser

Recently Finished...
(1) Invisible- Paul Auster
(2) The Brooklyn Follies- Paul Auster
(3) The Time Traveler's Wife

Paul Auster is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. His writing is beautiful, but real. I read Invisible first and immediately fell in love. The Brooklyn Follies surprised me by surpassing the first. I can't wait to read more of his novels.
On the contrary, I found The Time Traveler's Wife underwhelming. It didn't live up to the hype I have heard from others. Extremely long, it did keep my interest. But, I was not moved by the novel nor did I take away anything more than a few shed tears. A good beach read possibly, but I would rather spend my time on a book that has more of an effect.
Enjoy your New Year's Parties & survive the headache in the morning (know I will be suffering right along with you)!

Winter Sparkle

My friend invited me to spend a few days in a Poconos cabin. The snow was beautiful and there was perfect snowboarding weather.

The view from the window early one morning.

Even a few deer passed by. They aren't nearly as shy as those in Jersey.

The fire I stocked up in the midst of a freezing night.
All I can think of are these beautiful, glamorous dresses in this
kind of weather. Perfect for the many parties of the season.

These shoes cannot be more perfect:

Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas! Well, almost. Enjoy the family time and smell of the tree on your Christmas. Currently loving anything & everything absolutely glamorous. I know I'll be spending my break in my father's sweaters watching Breakfast at Tiffany's with billions of magazines. Or homework.
Snuggle up with these coyuchi striped wool blankets. I could fall asleep looking at them.

My dream is to dress as lovely as these women look, every single day. Stunning and a blast from the past, Nadinoo is the prefect daydream.
