still digesting...

since i'm still nearly as stuffed as our thanksgiving bird was on thursday, this will be a lazy post.

just a survey i found from nylon.

1. This Thanksgiving, I ate too much: sweet potato everything.

2. The movie we watched (on TV or at the cinema) was: Home Alone :)

3. I think “Black Friday” is lame but I still really want to buy: a leather skirt.

4. The celeb I’d most want at Thanksgiving dinner is: um, Rob Pattinson of course

5. The song I play when I’m finally alone without all the guests and relatives around is: this holiday, Satellite Heart by Anya Maria.

giving thanks for cheese

with thanksgiving a mere four days away, i've already scanned the food network & martha stewart websites relentlessly looking for mouthwatering recipes to share with my family. last year i tried one of my french favorites, cassoulet (if you haven't tried cassoulet, it's a white bean casserole-type dish that is to die for). this year, i'm taking a more state-side approach with ina garten's grown up mac & cheese.

as if mac & cheese needed help, she's added 3 different cheeses...

i can give thanks to that anyday.

think PINK!

my comittment phobia often gets me into trouble, especially when it comes to interior decorating (a new love of mine). i was the girl who always had a "themed" room growing up. sunflowers, stars, hawaiian, egyptian, even breakfast at tiffany's. the list goes on & on. after seeing this Parisian office, i may just have to update my entire apartment.

i'm addicted

sad, but true. i spend more time than i like to admit on my computer. hours seem like minutes when there's so much to look at. i'm addicted to & the impeccable online catologs of athropologie & j. crew.

what's my latest addiction? the images created by danny roberts.

scrolling through his fashion-inspired art makes any rainy day passable.

can you guess the notorious supermodel in the portrait below?

Little Red Book

I attended the launch party of the most fabulous little student-run fashion magazine last night, Little Red Book. Lady GaGa was blaring & all the cool kids were dancing. The pictures & the styling are incredible & really showcase college style in Athens, Georgia. I also wrote an article for LRB called "Everyday Dress-up" about nostalgia pieces that I've inherited from my mom & grandma. :o) The entire staff is truely talented & pumped out an awesome issue.

Fall Feelings

It's November 6th in Athens, GA & for the first time this month it may actually feel like fall outside. The leaves are changing colors, melting off of trees & crunching underneath my feet. The air is crisp, clean & cold. If this was the extent of winter weather I would be more than satisfied. Even though i'm only 4 hours north of my hometown of Savannah, GA, winters feel worlds different. In Savannah, sandals are considered a seasonless staple regardless of the weather and anything below 50 degrees feels like it's breaking some ungodly rule of southern climate. With the change of season in mind, this is the day I'm beginning my first blog. New weather, new hobby. I'll be rambling hopelessly about collegiate life, everyday troubles of twenty-something year olds, food, drink, family, friends, travel (if I'm lucky), school, hopes, dreams, yada yada...I'm off to enjoy this gorgeous Fall weather. xoxo
