Roberts on the set of Eat, Pray, Love

Eat, Pray, Love really hit home with me last (2008) thanksgiving. A bunch of friends and I were grocery shopping at COSTCO for  hefty thanksgiving dinner at their fraternity when I decided I would purchase this book. I finished the book that sunday and felt empty. I was manically stressed with school work and job search and my life at that point felt meaningless to me. I’m not gushing and saying that Eat, Pray, Love had been a life altering book, but it’s one that so many of us can relate to and feel good because we recognize that we’re not the lone weirdos who get manically depressed about life. and empty at the same time because you’ve just realized that you’re not a sole artist struggling to figure out life

I just read about the news while reading an interview of Penelope Cruz by Marion Cotillard on INTERVIEW MAG and just got too excited for no reason. cheers to procrastination and stressing more about life. I’m totally living on the edge right now, rolling dies and making decisions about my future on a whim. here’s to my last yr at the ye olde univeristé.

sometimes, when i’m bored and need motivation to live life like it was meant to be, I read the interviews on interview mag. some of them are not all that interesting at all (kristen stewart one was a total bore) but lots of them are superbly interesting! (like the one on MK Olsen and Winona Ryder) Check it out!

This is SO LAST CENTURY in fashion time, but eff that.
I can’t believe I just came across this ingenious  designer.
His collection “Get REAL” debuted on March 7th 2009, went on sale @ COLETTE the next day.

ripped out of glossys, put together with panache, laminated, closed off with a safety pin, is TOM BINNS‘ wonderful new collection GET REAL. Hilarious, with a price tag of $125.

This is def going to be my craft project during the winter holidays.

Super fly Ms. JAZZI MCG has already done a  DIY

Investing Wisely

Q:

Saving money for a rainy day?
Where do you keep them? In a shoebox under the mattress, in ziplock bags in the freezer, in stacks squished between the mattress and box spring?

or do you have them safety stowed in a CD that you can’t break when you actually need it. or a “safe” fund?
what do you do during a financial crisis where everything seems so risky?

A:

go out with a bang. be stylish.

This is by far the most pleasing way to save money I’ve encountered so far. Piggy banks don’t get any more attractive than these.
