All I want for Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Mine was filled with joy and family and all that good stuff. I never realized just how well my family knows me, but based off of the gifts I recieved, I must say they did an excellent job!

my parents:
the best present I received was an iPod Touch. I had wanted one but couldn't really care less if I had to stay with my iPod video as it worked just fine. But now that I have the touch, its incredible. Its just so much more convenient in searching for music, getting apps right on the iPod, and of course the WiFi doesn't hurt either.

They also gave me a DVD of Sabrina, a Starbucks card, and a new flat iron.

From my brothers:
my oldest brother and his wife got me an iPod connector for my car

My other brother and his wife got me seasons 1-3 of the Office

And my twin brother got my season 1 of 30 Rock, a fashion book, and the most amazing Academy Award book. I absolutely love reading about movies and love the classics. This book is so incredible, it has details of every single Academy Award show up to the most recent one, and includes nominees, bios on the winners, and things about movies that happened each year (like who was originally intended for a certain role, who fought on the set, who had been nominated many times but never won, etc.)

From my aunt, a hilarious book called "The Office and Philosophy"

The day after Christmas I went with Alena to the mall. I got these flats from Gap and afterward we each picked up books in Borders and then sat on the couches reading them for about an hour. I bought this screen actress legends book and a Jimmy Stewart biography. (I bought Its a Wonderful Life on iTunes for 4.99...I also rented Casablanca for my iPod which I watched today and fell in love with)

The Audrey book that Jessica gave me

Photos that I Love:

By the way, has anyone checked out Thakoon's collection for Target? There were a few pieces that I likes and I found the perfect top for one of my characters for my one-acts. :)

-THESE two things I found on chicintuition
Christian Louboutin will be designing. For Barbie.

this retouched picture of Teen Vogue team, from Jak and Jil unfortunately I could not find the original on Jak and Jil, but luckily this one is even better. I am in awe at how each and every one of them looks completely amazing in their own indiviula way.

My Influence book that Alena gave me... Alena also got a pair of Louboutins which I tried on over the weekend... still trying to figure out a way to steal them without her noticing..

Today I also got adorable presents from Jessica and Michelle. Unfortunately, I took this picture over the weekend but was unable to take pictures today of the fabulous Audrey Hepburn book from Jessica and the adorable unicorn keychain from Michelle.

THESE celeb looks:

Doo.Ri's first Pre-Fall Collection

Alexander Wang's first Pre-Fall Collection a social bookmarking tool for images and videos. I have folders and folders of inspirational photos, but now I can just add them all to my page and free up space on my computer
some current favorites (I think I'll be putting new ones frequently, for constant inspiration)

p.s. so so so sorry about my lack of posting and commenting. I promise I am still reading blogs, I just usually don't have the time to comment. I'm on winter break for two weeks so hopefully I'll make time in between all the extra shifts at work over the break. Hope everyone has a happy holiday, no matter what holiday that may be for you. Personally, I can't believe its already Christmas in TWO days! Happy Holidays!!
