"that was such a tommy move"

if you haven't seen "workaholics" on comedy central, please go watch immediately. i'm just off a 5-episode bender and my face hurts from laughing.

best & worst dressed: golden globes 2013

last night was a mixed bag, in my opinion. i was pretty much either IN LOVE with the look or absolutely hated it. here are a few of the standouts for me! what did you guys think?!


eva longoria

sultry, sexy, but classy. love the sleek hair, too!hayden panettiere

i'm usually not a huge fan of hayden, but her dress and makeup last night were simple and elegant. she looked stunning!jennifer lawrence
love the color, love the neckline, love the contrast of the belt.WORST:emily mortimer 
YIKES. just yikes. is that aluminum foil?olivia munn

livs, honey, did you confuse the golden globes with that tacky bar on the sunset strip?

lucy liu

maybe in a different color. with a different pattern. but this just isn't working for me.

100 things to do in 2012: month (and year) in review

i figured that since i'm housebound with a cold, i better just churn out this post before it's 2014. with the items i crossed off last month, i hit the 40 mark on the list (just 1.5 less than last year's - weird!) with a bunch of "almosts" - i.e., i have almost memorized the busta rhymes verse but wasn't quite confident enough to youtube it, and i have a 3.96 GPA instead of a 4.0. hopefully paring down my list to 50 this year will give me a better chance of accomplishing most of my items! here's a look at what i did in december:

28. send christmas cards: COMPLETED.

they were ecards, buuuuut it's fine. right?

52. wear red lipstick: COMPLETED.

i stopped by the lancome counter for this one on the afternoon of new year's eve, pretending that i was going to some fancy party instead of dick clark-ing it (ryan seacrest-ing it, rather), and trying on a shade called "retro rouge." i felt kind of like a clown and wanted to take it off, but my dear mom informed me that it made me look like i "stepped out of a fashion magazine" and convinced me to wear it for the rest of the day. "you're getting so many looks!" she said. um, probably because i looked like a clown?!

73.  try on clothes i can't afford: COMPLETED. 

i went into nieman marcus and i'm sure the fabulously flamboyant male employee had my number (it's 21...forever 21) from the moment i strolled in and picked up a $300 rhinestoned alice & olivia top and $200 jeans to try on. I'M ALLOWED! and they did look cute, right?! i still felt slightly bad just
flouncing out without anything, but meh.

91. buy a scratch ticket: COMPLETED.

every year, my uncle buys all of his nieces, nephews, and grandchildren a shit-ton of scratch tickets. and on average, i win like $0. sometimes $2. but i went of my own volition to the machine at my family's local grocery store in NH and picked out a glitzy $2 one called "holiday gold" and promptly won $20. show me da gold!

99. play a dance game on wii: COMPLETED.

it was xbox, but semantics. i am the undefeated champion of "just dance" in my aunt & uncle's household.
