You haven't seen the last of me!

Hi, all!

This is definitely not going to be my last post before New Year's. Nope. No way. I plan to squeeze in at least one more update before I take off for my holiday festivities in New York. Wee!

I am shocked and awed that 2010 is already coming to an end. It seems like only yesterday, I was making my 2010 resolutions... whoopsies. :) The year flew by! And a few fun things have happened in the past few weeks to keep me super-busy...

First, I took the LSAT. Madness, sheer madness. I don't know how I did yet, though during the test I felt oddly "calmfident" (calm + confident!). My score comes out next week, so I'm crossing my fingers until then! After that, I'll nose-dive into all those fun law school applications...

Second... I adopted a shelter kitten! I've been dying to share this for the past few weeks, but have been so busy chasing her around! She's quite an active little monkey. Her name is Chloe, and she will make her official debut on my blog... soon!

Next post, I will share some resolutions, and perhaps even recap Ip & Audrey's past year... it's been fun! Also, I'm excited to share a CSN Stores product review! It's the first one I've done for them (though we've hosted a few giveaways before). I ordered a pair of shoes and am so stoked for them to arrive and to share my little test drive! Woo-hoo!

In the meantime, I plan to check out Black Swan (for the costumes by Rodarte, of course), and maybe get a new haircut. Nothing says New Year's like a fresh crop! Here's a look I'm currently considering...

These pics of Olivia Palermo, from January's Spanish Vogue, are downright gorgeous (except for the whole smoking thing), so sixties and mod. She reminds me of my beloved Audrey in her seminal role (you know which one; if you don't, glimpse my blog header!). I love the idea of shoulder length hair, though on me, I don't always like the execution. But this is only a few inches shorter than my current style, so I might be brave and undergo a snip! If I chicken out, I'll probably just wind up cutting bangs. Again.

Till next time, then... Ciao, bellas!

Go for the haircut! I really liked the shoulder-length look on you when you sported it a few years back :)

Black Swan is a phenomenal movie, although a little disturbing and inappropriate at times. No wonder people think we (us?) dancers are crazy! Let me know what you think when you see it- and be careful who you see it with, not one to see with parents!

Busy year Erin! I am crossing my fingers for you as well regarding the results.
I think the shorter hair like Olivia Palermo would look very nice on you.
Also thank you for your always sweet comments, and Happy New Year!

PS: that place you asked where it was, it is Praça da República (Republic Square), one of the main squares in Coimbra, Portugal, my hometown ;) and in the back it's a beautifull garden calle Jardim da Sereia (Mermaid's Garden) hehe
