Why I Wish I Was Marie Antoinette

Because of my recent nostalgia for Paris and my yearning to go back, I thought I would share some of the pictures I took of Versailles while there. Although it was my second time being there (the first was when I was only 12), I appreciated it so much more and felt like I was seeing so much more.

If you ever go, you must see Marie Antoinette’s pretend village. The palace is, of course, usually the main attraction (and unbelievably gorgeous and decadent), but I found her village so much more interesting. They even still have animals there! (As well as beautiful vegetable gardens). Unfortunately, you can’t go up into her little cottage, but just walking around the grounds was amazing. She had secret caves, and ponds, and everything you could possibly think of.

This is why I wish I was her…

Christmas Highlights

There is nothing more depressing than the day after Christmas. The stress and anxiety of Christmas planning is gone, family from far away have all left to go home, all baking is finally finished, and the tree is left naked with no presents under it. I want to thank all my family and friends for making this Christmas so special.

Although I really do love giving gifts more than receiving (and I’m NOT just saying this – it’s a great excuse to shop!), Santa (and others) did leave me some great little treasures under the tree this year. And I want to thank my friends and family for their generosity.

Here are a few of the highlights.

A dome cake platter from Fish’s Eddy! (Thanks Mom!)

I snagged this gem in the annual family grab bag – it’s been on my “to read” list for weeks.

Roll up flats – the best invention ever! They roll up perfectly to fit in a small bag for when your feet are in total agony after a night in heels.

A Louis Vuitton coin purse from the boyfriend :] I especially love it because it’s denim – different than the usual LV leather.

Anna Sui’s new book from my Grandmother! Other than the amazing pictures of her collections, it also talks about her experience in the fashion industry.

A cute cherry patterned apron to go with my cake platter.

And my favorite gift of all…

No, not a puppy, unfortunately,… But my boyfriend is sponsoring a sick puppy named Marty who has a neurological disorder in my name. He was rescued from a puppy mill and has various health problems causing him to walk in circles, stare in to space, and forget to eat. However, he is currently living in a foster home until he is adopted. And thanks to my boyfriend and others, Marty is able to get the care he needs.

Although I am so grateful for these gifts, I am even more grateful for the people who I got to spend the holiday with.

American Apparel Now Has Nail Polish !!

Anyone that knows me knows how absolutely addicted I am to nail polish and doing my nails. And now, while browsing through AmericanApparel.net, I find out they have their own nail polish line! And the colors are beautiful! (My personal favorites are Office and Mousse). They are only $6 (not bad for nail polish) and come in 3 packs for $15. Needless to say, I will be making my way to American Apparel very shortly…

Looking For New Hair Colors…

According to WhoWhatWear, growing your roots out (to a certain point) is the new fashion trend.

They featured dirty/golden blondes growing out their brown roots, but I actually want to do something similar with my dark brown hair. I’ve always died my hair dark – as close to black as possible without it being actually jet black. But now I’m getting bored, and want to go lighter. I was thinking something with a redish/golden tint to it (which is pretty close to my natural hair color).

This is what I’m thinking:

Rachel Bilson is now a Style Icon and hair icon !
