new year, new you

2011 has been a pretty crazy year. i have learned so much and grown from so many experiences. i have met so many great people that have become good friends. it is funny when the new year comes around and you start to reminisce on the past year and think of all the things you have done and all the things you want to do this new year. do you all make new year resolutions? i usually do but forget or stop working on them the second week. there are a few i think i am going to make this year and try to stick with them. starting out the new year everyone should have a few essentials to help kick start the new year. here are a few of my favs.

1. sports bra
2. nike free running shoes
3. stress relief lotion
4. tea time planner
5.turquoise ring (there are a lot of turquoise ring sources this is just one)
6. urban outfitters dress

oliver tate..the name just rolls off my tongue. confession, i am completely and utterly obsessed with this fictional character oliver tate as of late. i have watched the movie submarine a few times in the last few days and it all began. i am sharing with you today a music video performed by alex turner (lead singer of the artic monkeys, and also did the soundtrack of this incredible film). A few charming clips of this highly recommended film is a great afternoon pick me up.

a message from sir paul mccartney

morning to all. hope everyone is having a wonderful morning! a quick cup of coffee and a few tunes before work and i am feeling good. i wanted to share with you a very dramatic and haunting video. peta can be a bit extreme, but without a sense of extreme people may not listen. anyways this video is sir paul mccartney talking about the truth of where our food comes from. it has been so long since i have had meat, it never crosses my mind and i feel so much better. it's not just the animals that are slaughtered that makes a sad story, it is the whole idea of animal cruelty. see puppy mills and experiments. it is sad to know the amount of people that don't know what is going on. im not trying to change minds or ideas. just showing some facts. (please note the video is graphic)

i'll tap my foot to these jams..

is it cold enough for everyone? my brother sent me news from logan..1 degree. it's painful just to think of that. to ease your pain of iced fingers and toes. i advise you to go grab a cup of coffee and enjoy some jams. today's pick is "hot line" by black sabbath from their 1983 album born again. although ozzy is not in this album (ozzy holds a special spot in my heart) it features ian gillan whom you will all know as the lead singer of deep purple. anyways its a kick ass album so enjoy.. (its okay head banging is allowed..)

snaps & shots

it's a rainy blustery day here today. today is the day i am finally putting up my christmas decor! i couldnt be more excited. i may be a day or two late but non the less it's going down. here is a few pictures of some things i have enjoyed recently..

starbucks christmas blend is the best blend. so bold.
 of course i was home watching the victoria secret fashion show.
 running bleachers is a kick ass workout. you are sore for days afterwards. (if you push yourself)
 as of late i have been in love with these drinks that are full of so many benefits. (there are different kinds with different vitamins)
 i missed the whole thanksgiving day post train...whoops. it was so fun and cozy. i enjoyed my tofurky almost as much as i enjoyed the sweet potatoes. so yummmy.
chai tea and falling leaves make a morning so blissful.
 i pulled my game boy out of my storage, and i haven't been off it since.
 i was so pleased to see my local target supporting pink floyd. classic shirts and cds. unfortunately no vinyl but i did get the division bell shirt. im smitten.
