Books of 2010

Pictured above are the books I managed to finish between June and December of 2010. Out of all of the books I read this year, the top three that I would recommend you read are: The Road by Cormac McCarthy, Room by Emma Donoghue and Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil by John Berendt. I am kind of struggling through the book I’m reading at the moment, so hopefully I can finish that off early in the New Year and start on something else.

Day Zero Project – Goal #69

I was able to cross another goal off of my list this week, and it was Goal #69 – to go to church. I know this seems like an odd goal (or would for some at least), but for me it was one of the more personal goals of the 101 that I aim to achieve. On Friday night I attended Christmas Eve mass with my family, and although it was sweltering hot it was a pleasant experience.

Christmas Hiatus

This will be my last post until after Christmas, so I am wishing those who celebrate it a very Merry Christmas, and everyone a very happy holidays! Have a great time, stay safe and do your best to live in the moment. I am already looking forward to 2011 and everything it will bring. My mindset is positive, and my #1 priority for the year ahead is budgeting. (cue screaming) Seriously though, 2010 has been a blast, but it’s also been rather excessive and I am looking to cull down frivolous spending a lot in my life next year. I will go into this in further detail in another blog post, but for now – have a great weekend everyone, and I’ll be back next week!

Wardrobe Wednesday

This week’s Wardrobe Wednesday is dedicated to a fictional television character that I am gaining a wealth of inspiration from. This character happens to be Emma Pillsbury, the guidance counsellor on Glee. Everytime she would come onto the screen I would die a little bit inside from jealousy. Not just because of her on-screen chemistry with the adorable Mr Schue, but because of her her enviable wardrobe.

I need me some twin sets and adorable jewelry asap. I am not the only one with an admiration for Emma’s wardrobe, there is a site dedicated to it called What Would Emma Pillsbury Wear? and I spent way too much time browsing through it last night (while shopping online for Mary Jane pumps, twin sets and J Crew accessories). Now excuse me while I go and browse Etsy for some vintage sweater pins…
