Yesterday while eating my daily fortune cookies, I got one fortune that said, "you will travel to exotic places on your next trip". I mean, I have been craving the ocean lately. I think it's because Zach and I were just discussing traveling to California, which isn't exactly exotic but it sounds so nice. The snow is not my friend. I understand that it's pretty, and that Christmas just isn't really Christmas without it, but it causes me more anxiety than it should. If I know it's going to snow next week, I'm already stressing about the fact that I have to drive in it. I've considered hiring a chauffeur more than once. My whole schedule revolves around the weather this time of year, it's really quite the conundrum. Anyway, I need some ocean breeze in my life. For now I suppose I will just watch the videos on my phone that my dad sent me from when he was last in Florida...walking on the beach...videoing it so that I could pretend I was there. Farewell for now. xx JR

So while in New York I visited one of my favorite stores; Topshop. I was so excited to see all of the beautiful things Kate Moss designed up close and personal. I literally wanted to cry. She did so good, and it hurt my heart that I couldn't have all of it! It's so much different seeing the clothes in person rather than just online. I get a better buzz when it's in person. Therefore when I move to New York, Topshop will certainly be my store of choice. Anyway, here are some of my favorite things from the online store that I thought I'd share. BLUE SEQUINED SWEATER - you will be mine. Technically I want all of it, but the sweater I've got got got to have. And the beaded collar, whoa. So fantastic. xx JR.

So I'm not really into the cliché "let's all go around the table and say what we're thankful for" thing my sister always tries to get us to do, let alone the "this is what I'm grateful for" Thanksgiving Day blog post. I've never been very good at being open and gushy with my feelings, but today I'm giving in...time to voice my thanks! Thanks for my family, friends, a great job, music that keeps me going, the beauty of the world and the opportunity to travel and see it, a warm house to come home to, my puppy, the creativity of others, a vivid imagination, and so many other things that will not be named, for that would be a very long post. I'm handed so many things on a silver platter and I often forget that I'm incredibly lucky to live such a life. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, and also that you enjoy Andrew Garfield as much as I do. Au revoir.

Sometimes when I'm feeling a little lost, I like to take my heels out of their boxes and just look at them or maybe try them on. It always seems to make any day a bit brighter. Anyway...tonight I have been trying real hard to pretend I'm not sick while organizing little spots in my room and picking a new color to paint my nails (keeping them blue for good luck, Mr. Brown). My music's been playing real loud since no one is around to be bothered by it and I've got bubble gum to last me a lifetime. Simple pleasures, man. Let me just say, my nails look great but my room looks exactly the same. Pssshhhh.

HUGE NEWS. The Jeffrey Campbell Lita's are on their way to my house...I finally found them in my size. So so happy right now! Not to mention I've been gathering up some fantastic new holiday tunes to keep me company in the blizzardy weather this evening. Nothing makes me happier than Christmas music and twinkle lights, so cozy in my room right now. Aside from the disaster area on the floor...I am quite content. Here are some photos from New York. It's a big mess of shopping, sight seeing, dancing, cabbing, laughing, eating at my favorite Carmines, and all kinds of crazy shiz you will never understand. Thank you to the best cousin/friend in the world for making it all possible. ENJOY xx JR.

I always get a bit distraught upon leaving New York. Then I get home and shut out the world for days and days. I never want to do anything or even see anyone. I like to hide out and hang on to that New York feeling for as long as possible, it's a real serious issue. In the cab ride to the airport we drove through Park Avenue. All I wanted to do was sit and be silent and pretend I was in a nice little town car with my own personal driver who was taking me back to my handsome husband in our Park Avenue palace. I felt completely happy at the thought of that. Ohhh how dreamy...one day. I'll post pictures and a play by play of my trip tomorrow when I can find the time. I think I will go sleep now..I don't know why but I always find myself getting sick after my New York trips. NOT OKAY. Nightie night xx JR.

You won't be hearing from me for a few days...I'm off to my future place of living, NYC, to find some adventures. One of the million fortunes I got out of the million fortune cookies I ate today, told me that "the weekend ahead predicts enjoyment". It totally read my mind! New York never disappoints. If I'm lucky I'll come home with my Jeffrey Campbell Lita's, a new place to further my fashion education, and Baptiste Giabiconi. All three together present a lifetime of happiness. xx JR

So I get home tonight after a very long day of work and play, and I'm texting my favorite cousin about his skinny pants and how wearing them was not worth starvation. Suddenly I realized something...I. Am. Starving. So since it fit with the conversation I agreed and decided I was very hungry right that moment. I should have known better... of course he orders a pizza - "it's in the oven..." "it's on it's way.." WHAT?! I sat on my bed and caused myself so much anxiety trying to figure out if I was being tricked and how I would avoid waking my dad up. The delivery lady was probably so creeped when I came running out of the dark house like a spaz. The next thing I know I'm sitting on the floor of my kitchen happily not hungry anymore and fully okay with the fact that I just indulged in a zillion calories at midnight. Greatest midnight snack ever, THE END. xx JR
