Part of my New Years resolutions for this year are to be a better blogger. I plan on starting here with an introduction of the official features I have decided to include in this new year of better blogging. These main features are where most of my passions lie, and some are just for fun. I will implement these posts in with my regular posts from day to day. There may not be one of each of these every week, but they will definitely be around. Hope you enjoy!!
"Want It" posts will be about something wonderful I find throughout my week and would love to have but most likely do not have the funds for at the moment. The price tag will usually be hefty and the cuteness level off the charts. Look here for some beautiful and unique items that I find in my everyday travels and can not resist sharing. While I do not typically wind up purchasing these items I like to keep in mind the words of a little striped shirt wearing pregnant girl who once said "dream big." Previous "Want It" posts can be found by clicking on the "Want It" button on the side of the page or the tag at the bottom of the post.
"Seen It" posts are about the best films ever created... classic movies!! I am absolutely in love with these dreamy black and white films! The outfits, the actors, the mystery, the cars... I love it all!! Hitchcock's are of course some of my favorites, but I also love many of the other classic "Film Noirs" and even some of the great comedies. Gene Tierney, Gregory Peck, Cary Grant, Jack Lemmon, Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, and Lauren Bacall are just some of the actors that will show up in "Seen It" posts. Every post will include a short summary of the main plot and the original trailer (if it is available). Next time you want to cuddle up on the couch for a peaceful night in make sure to check previous "Seen It" posts for a movie you are sure to enjoy.

"Design It" posts are a new feature inspired by my last couple of semesters in school. I have really learned to look for design EVERYWHERE. Almost every aspect of our lives is impacted by good and bad design. Whether it is a giant billboard over the highway, the logo of a gas station, or even the typeface used for the ingredients on the back of your Motrin bottle, design is there. A design can evoke an emotion or feeling that is felt in one split second, no words needed. Design helps you make decisions on what to buy, where to eat, and why you do what you do. This being said I love finding designs that are worthy of great praise. There is a lot of mediocre out there and I would like to applaud those who step outside the mold and come up with truly beautiful design work. "Design It" posts will be all about the world of design. Whether it is a beautiful new design shop or a well designed sticker I find on the bottom of my chair it will be shared here. Previous "Design It" posts can be found by clicking on the "Design It" button on the side of the page or the tag at the bottom of the post.
"Wear It" posts are all about the clothes! I would like to say that clothing is somewhat of a passion for me, and I mean that in the least cheesy way possible. Now please shake that image of a bleach blonde, pink nailed, Chihuahua toting California girl out of your head. I like to look at clothes as the ultimate form of expression. Let's face it, whether you like it or not clothing is essential, there is no getting around it (unless you live in one of those special colonies but we won't go there). So why not have fun with it?! I absolutely love mixing colors and textures and coming up with color pallets I would have never normally thought of. Which is why "Wear It" posts will focus on those who do a great job of this. I am constantly inspired by other's clothing choices and I think it's great to celebrate this fantastic form of art! This may be in the form of other bloggers, snatched off the runways, or even people I meet on the street. Inspiration really is everywhere!!
