current obsession: the side braid.



Dress: Forever 21
Tights: Target
Flats: Macy's
Glasses: My valentine's gift :)



Dress: Thifted
Tights: Target
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: F21



Mike and I didn't go all out this year for v-day. Mike woke me up early to give me a little gift which consisted of a heart shaped dream catcher and these hilarious glasses....


In other news, I've been ridiculously sick lately. I had a terrible cold that had me down for the count and as soon as it started to pass, I got some sort of stomach virus. Ugh! Just my luck. Needless to say, between the sickness and being snowed in, the past few weeks have been extremely uneventful and painfully boring.
I'm so ready for my upcoming vacation. I'm going to Vermont for an entire week! My family rented a big house right around Okemo and we're going to spend the week hitting the slopes! I've been snowboarding since I was 14, yet somehow, I'm still pretty terrible at it. Don't get me wrong, I can make my way down the mountain without breaking any bones, but I'm terrified of speed and I don't dare attempt any tricks. Regardless, it's going to be a lot of fun. I get so so sick of the city and its nice to escape to the woods every once in a while. I would move someplace rural in a heartbeat if I didn't think that I'd miss my family like crazy. As cheesy as it sounds, my life is like that Feist song, Mushaboom. I want to live in a log cabin tucked away in the woods! But for now, my tiny one bedroom second floor apartment will have to do....

PS: For those of you who have inquired about the fitness program I started, P90X....IT'S A TOTAL DREAM. I lost 5lbs during the first week and I'm started to see some real muscle definition in my arms and abs! I highly recommend it. The yoga portion is absolutely ridiculous and impossible (as are many of the other workouts) but I feel amazing after I complete it! :)

  13. VT is lovely! I hope you have a good time! I thought about trying the P90x system but it costs so much! I've got this book called the "Abs Diet" and they have a routine that you use and it includes pictures of various exercises for all the muscle groups. But, in the end, it's all about the diet. Protein, protein, protein... and when u thought you had enough protein u have to eat more protein. Lol!

  14. Thank you all for the sweet comments! :)


    morgan, If you search hard enough, You can find P90X to download for free! I tried the abs diet a few years back, but found it SO hard to keep up with all that protein. Ugh! If i had to eat one more dry chicken breast, I thought i'd throw up! haha. :)
