obsessions de 2008

i am tres excited for this year for oh so many reasons. obvious: graduating h.school, trois amazing vacations, etc

but besides the biggies, there are so many little things that thrill me about this year ♥

im sure theres v. few of us that get any bit excited when they see the latest issue of american vogue in our mailboxes, so i decided this year that there is no need to waste anymore of my time picking it up from the post pile and throwing it in the bin. so i cancelled my subscription. there never seems to be enough time to read all of my favourite glossies every month so why not read only the best (and besides - throwing away all of those garbage worthy issues away is not v. eco friendly)? why not spend more time looking at editorials like this:


and this:


instead of this:


since my tastes are ever changing, new music is definately in order for a new year. & my favourites? au revoir simone, nico, and bat for lashes:

new favourite film pour 2008? dans paris, ofcourse.


another 2008 obsession? clemence posey, ofcourse.


she is is just so effortlessly street chic, non?

one thing i'd like to increase a bit more is hat-wearing.


i mean, how fun is that?

on another note, another thing i'd like to increase is more of this


in my life. well dressed boys. there is not much else besides that can me weak in the knees. hee hee

i decided this year for halloween that i wanted to be a peacock:


just thought i should write it down before i forget that ingenious idea. haha.

and back to more obsessions pour 2008: polaroids! i know it may be a bit delayed, seeing as everyone else also loves polaroids but i recently dug up our old camera and im re-obsessed.

& why not? Photobucket Photobucket

one thing that will not change this year is my absolute obsession with stella mccartney. and this is why:


mm. delish.

well, that is all i have for now for the things i plan on being obsessed with this year, or for the next month. hee hee it always changes. what are your obsessions this year? xo




PRESSIES! i recieved some great loot this year, and i simply had to share! i have some of the most ah-mazing friends, non?

okay,loveys, from left: juicy couture longjohns that say "any one fancy a juicy pillow fight?", black knit high knee UGG boots, gucci rush perfume, furla key ring,green burberry tunic belt, adrienne vittadini leather cuff, marc jacobs neck scarf, betsy johnson drop earings, yellow calvin klein ruffle socks, brown Dior socks(so fun, non?) juicy couture tube socks, red plush sleep socks from victorias secret (i really did well with le socks this year, didnt I? haha), bath bubbles from victoria secret, as well as undies from victoria secret, the books atonement by Ian McEwan,MISSHAPES by the misshapes and jarvis cocker, and the other boleyn girl by Phillipa Gregory, OPI nail kit and OPI nail lacquer in 'I'm not really a waitress', true religion straightleg dark wash jeans, and below: volcom ski jacket from Urban for ski trip - which hasnt come in yet. love?


enough of my gloating. i hope that everyone else had an equally splendid christmas. what did everyone else recieve this year? do tell ;] xo Ali


ee! I'm obsessed with le snake

thanks to a little prompting by a friend, i was on the cobrasnake website checking out his latest batch of photos and i was floored by how good they were! honestly, mark, in my opinion, should photograph editorials for magazines - im sure they would be a tad more interesting than whatever shit vogue is putting out at le moment.


im obsessed with them. i want to be in them. oh my only dream is to be cobrasnake'd...

hee hee anyways i have a few fabulous posts coming up next. so stay tuned, you fabulous people. xo
