Who, at age 24, falls and scrapes their knee (sober as a nun I may add). I fell in the parking lot at work and now have a big scraped knee to prove it:

Mind you this is post bleeding...now I'm going to have to hunt down a bandaid that's not pink to put on it bc I don't want everyone knowing that I fell and hurt myself...

Please tell me someone else has done this (even if it's not true, just make me feel like less of a klutz)

Warm Weather

Would be awesome right now! Seeing this pic made me crave some sunshine and warmth!
 ...either it was the picture or the fact that one of our pipes froze and it hasn't gotten above freezing in a few days!

Recent purchases

Just scored this top for $30 on sale at a local boutique in Hanover.  Can't wait to pair it with my skinny cargo pants and a big thick scarf!
I also got a scarf that's this color but is paisley...couldn't find a pic to put up!  I'm psyched to wear it to work because I have to wear all black every day and I love to spice it up with colorful accessories!

Nothing else to report...just trying to stay nice and warm! It's supposed to get into the negatives tonight (-20!)..cringe!

Hope you're all having a great weekend! XO

Winter must haves cont.

For some reason, blogger is being a pain today!

Here are my winter must-haves:
1. Tinted moisturizer...Aveeno is a favorite
2. Blush/Bronzer combo...I'm currently loving Bobbi Brown
3. Ugg boots: a MUST HAVE, I have a few pairs and don't think I could survive winter without them
4. Wine...those long nights would be even longer without some wino. Winter typically means red, but I've been into white lately...
5. Sunglasses, it makes you feel like it's sunny outside even though you really only need them to ward off the reflection from the sun on the snow!

I was a little bad today

I went tanning...but I can't help it! I'm stuck in winter wonderland with no sign of warmth or sun and I'm getting so pale!

To make it worse, my friend Tara told me how pale I looked today...not cool.  Also, having a mom with a perma-tan doesn't help things either.

Here is me tan and happy:

And me currently, next to ms. uber-tan.
 I must say...I feel better already.  A few minutes in the "sun" was all I needed...hopefully I'll be back with a nice glow soon!

Hope you had a great hump day! xo

a little something on the side...

I'm on a committee up here that throws a party to benefit a local shelter. This is my first year on the committee and I volunteered to do the Save-The-Date and the Invitation (designing stuff like that is a hobby of mine and I was thrilled to be able to do it for this cause!).

The event is called the Mud Ball and all attendees are invited to wear cocktail attire with wellies...fun right?!

I'm working on the invite now but figured I'd give you a peek at the Save-The-Date that went out in the beginning of January.

Best and Worst from the Golden Globes

I am going to start off with who I thought was the Best Dressed:

Eva Longoria looked stunning in a black Badgley Mischka, no better revenge for a cheating husband than looking fab (in your face Tony)! Anne Hathaway also looked great, the color looked great and I just really like her hair down for some reason.

Next, Emma Stone and Claire Danes both nailed it in Calvin Klein Collection.  Both chose relatively simple dresses that killed...they each look amazing.  Emma Stone gets the award for overall Best Dressed.
Lastly, I really loved Julianna Margulies in YSL.  She looks ladylike and classic.  The pale pink with black looks great with her complexion and hair, the only think I'm unsure about is the shoes...
Next Up:  Worst Dressed
First up are Natalie Portman (don't hate me please)! I just think that the red rose on the dress made her look like a Valentine!  Halle Berry also disappointed, not a fan of her Nina Ricci modified mini-dress
Leighton Meester (who seems to have only bad taste) wore another disaster (suprisingly from Burberry).  At least this one wasn't sheer!  January Jones also had on something I'd rather forget...the boobs smashed against the dress is not a good look. Suprising because she's usually spot on with her gowns.

 Okay, J. Lo...not sure where she was going with this but it reminds me of another awards show disaster outfit, pale makeup and all. (at least she didn't have the center part going)
Officially the Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes: Miss Michelle Williams in Valentino. She looks like she should be in the ad for Marc Jacobs' Daisy Perfume.  Agree?
Lastly, I've created my own award for Most Underwhelming, which appropriately goes to: Miss Carrie Underwood (i.e. Mrs. Mike Fisher!) Nothing wrong with the dress, she looks stunning, but she seems to always have a similar gown on...She's got a rocking body and is so beautiful- I'd love to see her in color!!!!!!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend...Mine went way too fast! xo

I live in New Hampshire

again, not sure why it's sideways (can you see the Lu on Matt's lap)

Outfit of the Day

Okay, so I decided that since I love seeing other people's OOTD's, I'd put up one of my own (but don't get too excited, I work at a gym and typically wear a pair of Lulu's with a black fleece and sneaks)
Not sure why it's sideways...
Sweater: Design History
Pants: Citizen of Humanity leggings
Shoes: Tory Burch
Necklace: Astrological sign (Gemini baby!)
