So the one year anniversary of the/my daily/daly dose (I still haven't figured that part out) was June 23rd. I didn't mention it because well, I don't have anything to say about it really! It's just weird... I'll only be blogging for less than one more year though because one of two things is bound to happen...

A. The world ends sometime in December. The exact date is fuzzy but, I hope its after Christmas cuz I want presents.

2. I off myself before I turn 30 in April. Even if I decide to grin and bear it I intend to "groundhog" and repeat 29. 29 was fun. I got married... became an Aunt again... twice... I'm sticking at 29.

Which means the blog will turn one again June 23rd. I'll still probably not have much to say about it but, I do believe this justifies a new pair of shoes! Doesn't everything...

"her blog is one! that's right her! the one with the vodka spill on her shirt!"

Enjoy the Opening Ceremonies! They start @ 7:30 sharp which in London time means 8:30 abouts. I will be watching on a high def tv without a high def box while having a pizza party for two with an as yet to be determined cocktail or 5. GO USA!

Celeb edition...

Kim Kardashian in perfect leather pants looking tougher than usual...

Kourtney Kardashian in nautical stripey perfection...

Monochromatic Jessica Alba...

Same hat, same pieces, different proportion. hat + scarf + buttondown - switch the sweater for a blazer - and the capri chinos for denim flares and its a completely different look...

Then, there's the Olsens...

I've been stealing this look left and right.

As if an all white couch is a possibility for us real people...

Opposing couches to create conversation areas is my new thing. Forget tvs. They're so 90's.

Big, cozy, knit blankets on beds without headboards.

Designer staircases...

I wish I was capable of this kind of symmetry...

Just perfection.

Booked a vacation to Jamaica (mon) and have since noticed a renewed interest in my health aka I need to lose 10 lbs before the plane takes off.

There are a few different ways I get inspired to get healthy. Besides the obvious "look inside yourself" yadda yadda yadda.

1. Find images of celebrities who already resemble you in some way and see how they sculpt their bodies. I tend to begin and end with the redheaded/freckled community. What can I say? I feel a kinship.

Actually not the same person. left: Isla Fisher right: Amy Adams

2. Find images of people actually working out and gain inspiration from the fact that everyone has to work for it in one way or another.

3. If those two don't work then look for pictures of people in bikinis that your man will be looking at instead of you if you don't put down that brownie and back. away. slowly.

This is kind of a hodgepodge of DIY inspo but now that I have my walls and trim painted I'm looking at tackling the artwork. And I was thinking instead of printing large format photos to stand alone, what about printing them really really tiny and putting them all together in blocks to form a shape on one print?

coffee cup print... happens whether you want it to or not.

necklace / turtleneck ideas

I'm dying to embroider a plain black jacket.

could be cool / could be terrible.
