Hair today... Gone tomorrow

I tend to become super bored of the same hairstyle about every 6 months or so. So i thought it would be fun to post some of my previous looks... (It's also raining in Los Angeles.. AGAIN!)

Let's take a stroll down memory lane... of Hairstyles:

(i actually  shaved the side of my head awhile before i took this photo.. It had grown out some by that time...)
 Grown out even more...

The sunlight's making me feel paranoid...

I am a creature of comfort... that being said... 1 of my new year's resolutions is to cease buying T-shirts! I've grown wayyy too comfortable in the v-necks, skinny jeans & the vans look. I try, in vain, as you will see...

Here is my latest (and hopefully last) t-shirt:

 (I gave in just because this shirt makes me genuinely smile)

At least i made an attempt to match it with my bi-focals.. right? No? Nothing?! ... I tried. ;)

Any new year's resolutions focusing on wardrobe?

Ain't nothin' but nothin' but Right...

Christmas has come and gone and now the New Year approaches. I have to admit, i actually really enjoyed the holidays this year. Time w/ the familia & fiance, and tons of SLEEP! :)

Spent X-mas eve with the fam... had a delicious dinner and exchanged gifts.

X-mas Day was spent with the fiance. Gluttony at it's finest.

Sunday was spent shopping and getting back home in time for Mr. xx's beloved football games.

Mr. xx got this mega-radical bomber jacket:
Totally reminds us of a modern day Donnie Brasco coat.
*Might just have to borrow this some time ;)

How was every one's holidays? Any amazing gifts worth mentioning?

Hardly Art... Hardly Starving...

I am in a rut with painting anything lately. Le sigh... But in the new year, i am really hoping to change all that. I have 2 pieces I've already sketched out and everything but i can't seem to find the motivation to finish them... I promise pieces, i will finish you in early 2011. Here is some older stuffs... that i actually completed:

Sketches & Doodles
"Bunny Day"

Can't Rain All the Time...

Apparantly it can. It's like day 6 of pouring rain in LA. No bueno.

No real updates to be made... So i'll leave you all with a photo of my beloved winter hat (I also wore when watching LOST.. Ha!)

In addition, here is one of my favorite rainy day songs:
'Breakfast in Bed'
What are your favorite rainy day songs? xx

Here Kitty Kitty...

I was having 'one of those days' the other day.. nothing too crazy but just wasn't feelin' it in general... Only to come home to a Christmas card from my loverly bestie, Erin. She is a super thoughtful lady and had this inserted in the card:

Meet the loverly, Stella
aka ChiChi aka Kitty aka Kitty Queef
(Her farts are no joke.. hence the last nickname)

'Cuz I'm Free...

This song and video crack me up every time... and it's STILL raining in Los Angeles. Sigh. Enjoy!

'I Don't Care About You'

A more candid look at Julian's solo project from 2009... Enjoy!

Part Uno

Part Dos

Bury Me Under a Mound of Shopping Bags...

Wasn't able to do much over the weekend due to the incessant Los Angeles rain... sigh.

Friday, Mr. xx and i went to his good buddy's birthday dinner. Met a lot of super nice people and had a great night of food and laughs.

Saturday, We spent the entire first half of the day listening to Pandora's Christmas mixes! If you haven't heard 'em, i highly suggest you try it. I, like many, have resisted the urge to purchase those awesome xmas mixtapes.. and now i don't have to.
Then, i was forced to leave the comforts of our cozy room to brave the rain and make it to my facial appointment. After that, i think i slept for pretty much the rest of that day. 0_o

Sunday, i was able to get a little shopping in (Compliments of the future mum-in-law.. i heart her!) We shopped and ate a late lunch together and it was loverly.

Here are the purchases i made:

Cinzia Rocca
Toggle-Front Wool Coat
(This coat reminds me of Paddington Bear)

Rebecca Taylor
Sweet Pea Tie Waist Shirtdress
(Barely into winter and already ready for Spring.. Ha.)

I'll do my best to get some photos up of me in the actual items, but no promises... ;) I tend to take a ton of photos and neglect to upload them til months later. I'll work on it... Promise!

How was everyone's weekend?
Are you ready for the holiday madness? Can't believe Christmas is this week already!
