These are a few of my favorite things...

Well, I've had a GREAT few days... the DUCKS won the Civil War - if you're not into football and/or not in the Pacific NW and have no idea what I'm talking about... here's a gist. That WONDERFUL win meant a fun Thursday night... followed by a fun Friday night... followed by... here I am on a Saturday night, EXHAUSTED, sitting on the couch watching "Little Women" with my Sister who is also my roommate. Thus, the last time I was sitting and doing this (meaning being 25 going on 383...), I decided to do a "These are a few of my favorite things" post (shown by clicking here) (ala mode Julie Andrews) and I thought it was quite fitting to do another.


I can't say I watch the movies... but in my next life, can I please, oh pretty-please come back as a beautiful woman with Caramel skin and flowing black hair and wear those absolutely decadent kitschy costumes, smile and dance around??

Yes, this was inspired by watching the movie right now. But I really just love this movie & book. And it reminds me of my Mom, so that's always fun. I also wouldn't mind wearing their huge, flouncy dresses w/ corsets - seems so elegant.


I knew I loved them when I saw Lauren Conrad in them... how striking! Then "The Owl's Closet" was discussing hers... and now I've been Googling them like crazy and wishing, hoping & praying I get some for Christmas!!


Coffee wakes me up in the morning and Tea calms my senses at night. I don't know how I would operate without either.


They make outfits go from so-so to DRAMATICALLY wonderful in about 10 seconds... (maybe 15 seconds if you sometimes have trouble getting your thumb in like me...)


I know it's December and this look is a bit better for warmer months - but Rihanna here? Wow. I love that color on her!


Miranda is my friend. She's beautiful inside and out - and I always love her natural red hair! She always is looking for fun, different stuff to do and has been responsible for planning some of my most fun days that I wouldn't ever take the time to plan: Hikes, New Restaurants, Festivals, Movie Nights, Volunteering jobs, organized our Book Club... she's a good egg and I'm so, so, so happy to know her.


I mean - look at those big Doe eyes, just wanting his BB-Gun. So adorable. This movie never ceases to warm my heart!


A feminized suit on a girl always looks so extravagantly delicious to me.

OH... and The DUCKS winning the 2009 Civil War

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your Saturday night was a bit more eventful than mine :)

Hey - remember when we watched Little Women and I asked your opinion about 8,000 necklaces on etsy? Just wondering...

You're such a silly little beetle :)

Unknown said...

Natasha Gregson said...

Leather. Leggings. Oh, I have been suffering from the very same case of lust. They are so fabulous! I actually saw someone wearing them with knee-high black suede boots on another blog the other day, and the look was amazing. So need a pair, as well!

And Ralphie! Between him and Kevin from Home Alone I am so obsessed!

Glad you had a good weekend love! :)

I love little women!

great things. I love them.

Nathalie said...

the leather leggins are really cool, they just rule every outfit. And so agree to the gloves! I need some long ones this winter, they're so glamourous.

Animal Print Gal said...

Rihanna is sooo gorgeous!I love the pink lipstick on her, but she will look beautiful in any color.

i watched that game too and it was such a good game! glad to hear your team won. i wasn't really rooting for anyone just knew it was a big deal :)

Healthy Shift Worker said...

I love Bollywood movies too - come to think of it, I remember being drawn to a particular spunk in one of them ... just can't remember which one it was!

Keith said...

Hey there. How are you? I hope you had a great weekend. I really like your blog. Enjoy the week ahead. Cheers!

with your lovely self's permission... I'm going to touch a tad on each noted "favorite thing"! ... partly because I'm super bored & blogging for the past hour... guess my Sunday isn't that fantastic haha

Bollywood - if you haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire, you're definitely missin out! It was SO good (and I'm not normally into foreign flicks)But just know this... I have quite a few Middle Eastern & Hindi friends, and the one thing that drives me nuts is that they marry their cousins, etc. Definitely a little incest goin on there lol

Little Women = Awesome

LC/leather leggings - Seriously, I need to get me a pair! I think they're so fantastic! Plus, I agree... LC is fab & her style rocks

Definitely a huge coffee freak. Starbucks hits the spot for sure!

Gloves are for princesses (aka ALL women) lol

Dark skinned/dark haired women are really the only people that can pull off that bright of lipstick. Blondes look fake. Redheads just don't mesh. and so on

you've GOTTA love Christmas Story, especially when it runs for 24-hours long on TBS lol p.s. a bunch of people compared my daughter to Ralphie when she wore her lamb costume for Halloween - my mother-in-law has both pics side-by-side in her office cubicle!

and last but not least... some women can pull off the menswear chic, but most cannot. myself being one! lol

Elizabeth Marie said...

I NEED some leather leggings!! And Ralphie....AMAAAAAZING!!!!

Kata Wagner Berg said...


I just bought a leather leggings yesterday. I love them !
I like on Rihanna the lipstic,but I liked her long curly hair better. I was so lucky to met her in 2006, and take a picture together :)

Have a nice day!
