gearing up for the cold

Hope everyone has been enjoying the holiday festivites.  I'm driving up to Mammoth tomorrow bright and early to have some fun in the snow and celebrate the New Year.  I can't help but wish I had a pair of these Ugg and Jimmy Choo limited edition boots to keep my toesies warm (Amber Valletta looks so good in them!)  I'll have to settle for my old beat up Uggs for now.  What are your plans to ring in 2011??

generation love

Basics with an edgy twist are what you'll find in Generation Love.  The line is all handmade in NYC and priced under $100.  I have my eyes on the hooded tunic in the second pic. Pin It

let your socks ride high

I don't know about you but all of this holiday shopping has seriously taken a toll on my sanity.  Of course, when shopping for others I always see things I want for myself...which really isn't so bad is it?  Anyways I went to Forever 21 (which was a total madhouse!) but scored some really cute thigh-high socks for like 5 bucks.  You can also get them at American Apparel in various colors.

free shipping

The perfect thing for any savvy internet shopping...free shipping!  Tomorrow is National Free Shipping day so anything you buy tomorrow is guaranteed to get to you/or the person you send to by Christmas eve.  Stores like Neiman Marcus, Yves Saint Laurent, Nordstrom, and DVF are just a few of the stores that will be offering to ship your goodies for free...

the weekend

It always seems that right before the holidays, there are so many things going on.  Parties and other festivities have been keeping me busy.  Saturday night we celebrated our friend's birthday at his log cabin-style house (he is one of the owners of The Bigfoot Lodge) with bbq, some pool playing and drinks.  Sunday night I had a party at the Venice Canals to watch the Holiday Boat Parade which was really, really fun.  Now, if only I could find some time to get started on Christmas shopping.

Lykke Li and Bon Iver Singing Dance Dance Dance

This video makes me happy on this gloomy, december day.  I'm really digging Lykke's outfit too especially that cool hat. Pin It

a dress of shells

I don't always like unconventional wedding dresses because sometime it seems like they're trying too hard to be different.... but this one from Oracle Fox's wedding in Bali totally fits the location and I think it looks stunning on her! And I love that she wore feathers in her hair too, nice touch. Pin It

another candle on the cake

For my 25th birthday (ahhh 25 I can't believe it) I had a house party to celebrate not only my birthday but also moving into a new house. Since I feel like I'm now officially an adult, it seemed only right to rent a moonbounce. All in all, the party was a success but I always feel like the time flies by so quickly when I'm the host.  These hypstematic photos were taken by my friend Kerry Malouf, who also did my fabulous party make up!
