Brunches, Bazaars, and The Blonde Theory

So what have I been up to? (Why, thanks for asking.) Well, I've been enjoying my vacation, that's for sure. I'm not going anywhere, but I've been hanging out at home with my family. We've done brunches, bazaars, golfing, and fun stuff like that.

I've read two books since yesterday (Elegance and The Blonde Theory), both of which were pretty good.

And we watched this really really sad Mexican movie (con subtitulos en ingles) about illegal immigrants. Ok, so it doesn't sound very sad; but the little 9-year-old boy gets separated from his mom, and his grandma dies, and his dad who he never met meets him then stands him up, and his only friend gets arrested by La Migra (the INS).
I'm a big movie crier. I've even cried while watching Full House (don't hold it against me: Michelle's grandpa was going to be her show-and-tell and visit her school, but he dies. You'd have cried, too). So I cried like on six seperate occasions while watching La Misma Luna.

Well, whatever. Point is, I've been having a good time. How 'bout you?

Provolone, Mozzarella, Giving, Shout-Outs... Mmm, Cheesy

I forget how long it's been since I last posted, and believe it or not I am actually too lazy to check. (Hitting Backspace and Page Dn? Oh yeah, it's exhausting.)

So who's excited for the holidays??? ME. And everyone else, I should hope. I am totally hyped for December 25 (making an effort to be politically correct?), and you know why?
But not for me. I mean, sure, I'll be getting presents, and I have a hot tip from my mother that they're gonna be pretty good this year (like all the other years. Just kidding...sort of), but what I'm referring to is giving.
Cheesy? Absolutely.
True? Yes.
In recent years I have discovered how fantastic it is to give people (my family members) really great gifts. Of course, this is only if they appreciate them. Which they SO will. Trust me.

Ok, so I don't have much else to write about. However, since I'm being cheesy today, I'll give a shout-out to my friend, "Tom." Why? Because I love him/her.
Ooh, look how secretive I'm being.
And I'm sure Tom is wondering why I'm using the name "Tom."

Or maybe he/she gets it, I don't know.
But I'll explain, just in case: "Mosh for Tom!" "No, mosh WITH Tom!"

For the non-Tom population, uh, have a good holiday.

Celebs I Love, and Information is My Enemy

Ok, so things are getting less busy. However, I still don't have anything extremely interesting to talk about... so I'm writing about some of my favorite celebrities (in no particular order).

1. Jennifer Aniston:
One word: Friends. Loved it. And she's so pretty. Personally, I think she's prettier than Angelina, but whatever.

2. Audrey Hepburn:
Ok, I'm not comparing Jennifer Aniston to Audrey Hepburn. I'm just saying I like them both. If you have to ask why I adore her... keep it to yourself. Maybe you'll figure it out one day. (By the way, about the picture: I think she looks like Twiggy! It's adorable. Also, I didn't want to use some generic Tiffany's picture - like the one on the title image.)

AND I am crushed. I know I've only given you two celebs I like, but this is related. See the Louis Vuitton ad above? So everyone was saying that was ScarJo. I didn't want to believe it. I mean, I not that big of a fan of hers, but I love love LOVE those LV ads. And I found out that's HER.
I know, you're like, "duh." But I just assumed it was a model who looked like ScarJo. Not who was her.

If I'm wrong, please let me know. I'd love that.

Hey, Again

Okay, so it's been a while, and I hope no one minds.
My excuse for this lateness? MIDTERMS. Have I been studying enough? NO.
Oh, well.

So now I'm just saying hi, and I don't really have any exciting news... except I am really really really excited for the holidays. I've gotten all my friends and family presents except for my mom! I want to get her a fake pearl necklace (did I mention this already? Whatever.) but I'm having trouble finding the perfect one. Well, it's not like it's my top priority right now. (Sorry, Mom. Haha, I'm sure she'd rather I do well on my exams.)

Uh... so I don't have anything to talk about. Uh... I'm not going anywhere special for the holidays, but my uncle is visiting from South Korea. That should be fun.

OKAY. I know what I'm going to talk about (briefly).
My mom ordered all this Juicy Couture stuff online (Bloomingdales) without telling me, so I got a pleasant surprise the other day when she had me try on a bunch of stuff. Loved it ALL. Or, at least, almost all of it. Whatever. Point is, it's like these super-adorable tee-shirts from Juicy, but not the kind with little phrases on them... just cute tees with pretty designs. One of them is a navy blue polo with these cute buttons and all that. J'adore my mom.

So that's all for now. Maybe I'll make a better effort to be interesting later... haha.

My Most Fabulous Favorite Furniture

I've been muy busy, and I still am, but I am taking time out of my busy day to post. Be grateful. Or don't, whatever.
But remember how I said that I would put up furniture or whatever? Yeah, that's what I'm doing now. (See above). That's a picture I took at the Louvre of my favorite piece of furniture in the WORLD. So there you have it. If you can afford to buy it for me, then please, pretty please, do so. It's gold (my old/new favorite color), and crystal. What's not to love? And I adore vanities. Please, do buy me one.
That's all you're going to get... for now.

This'll Be Quick

Well, thing is, there's midterms and projects and all sorts of stuff I have to do, and I have a debate tournament tomorrow that'll last forever, so I have to get sleep tonight, but I wanted to post anyway. Unfortunately for anyone reading this, it's not going to be long. Just ... uh, I was going through my mom's stuff she was gonna throw out and found a ton of cute stuff that I want. ("You have time to go through your mom's clothes but not enough time to write a good post?" Yeah, basically. Gotta prioritize. No, just kidding.)

Uh... so I got some new shoes today. My mom was gonna give them to me for my birthday, but wasn't sure if I'd like them, so showed them to me today. That's the shoe you see above. But I have two of them, of course. They're really cute and would go great with my new black dress (see 1st post ever).
Was this quick? I don't know, you can be the judge of that.

I try to post everyday, but this week has been so BUSY for me. And I probably won't get to post again until, like, Sunday, for those of you who care...
I have soo much stuff to do. I don't even know if it's just my imagination or something, but I'm swamped. (How can that be my imagination? I guess I could be blowing it out of proportion.)

So I don't have anything interesting to say. Uh, today I wore a Juicy Couture pink, layered, velvet miniskirt (like a ballerina pink) that's actually basically too small for me (I used to wear it soo much) over skinny jeans (my favorite BCBG jeans), with my new Juicy tee shirt (black, reads "My Dog for President") and my new flats (which are grey). Lots of parentheticals in that sentence, but it was actually a cute outfit. If I do say so myself...

So I guess that's something to think about. Also last night I composed a list of possible winter outfits. Maybe I'll show you. Sometime when I'm not swamped.

Ok, I don't really write In/Out lists, at least not on my blog. But I will write a short one, just this once.

Freudian Slips/Small Talk
Secret Clubs/Freelance Gossip
Giving Gifts/Giving Thanks
So that's all for now, basically. I'll write later, when I can find the time. Ciao!
