Note to self:  Don’t take pics against a gray wall when you are wearing a gray blazer; you will blend in.

I will be heading back home to the east coast for my friend’s wedding and hitting up Topshop in NYC.  Oh yea, and then there’s that annual thing that happens when you turn a year older.  So yes, when I return I’ll be a year older though I still look like I’m 19.

With every birthday, I strive to accomplish at least one significant feat or meaningful goal during the year.  In ’08 it was completing my first (and last) marathon (without any training).  And I’m proud to say that I’ve already achieved my one goal for this year in starting this blog.  It’s now been three months since I’ve become a member of this fabulous blogging community and every day, I thank you for visiting because I love reading your blogs just as much.

OK, enough rambling because um, I still need to pack for my trip.  I’ll miss reading your blogs while I’m away but will return in a little over a week.

Some things to check out…

This week I was totally flattered when two rad blogs featured me.  Recently I discovered men’s blog, Trimmed with Gold Above, which includes anything from cool vintage finds to men’s style posts.  I dig it because the blog is also based out of LA and I was stoked to find out Style with Benefits was the  Find of the Day on Wednesday.

Then yesterday, the fabulous Fashionista posted pictures of some of my looks on her blog.  She has amazing style tastes and I love the inspiration pics she posts.

To add to the highlights of this week, the beautiful Anne from Mrs. Zeus awarded me with the Lovely Blog Award, which I’m passing on to everyone who reads my blog!

And finally, if you’re in the market for a new watch and have a Twitter account, then you should follow twitter.com/toywatch.  Listed among Oprah’s Favorite Things, ToyWatch USA is doing a giveaway on its Twitter page every Friday during the month of June.  They ask a random question in the morning (Pacific Standard Time) and their Twitter followers will be able to post answers.  At 5p.m. PST that same day, they will choose their favorite answer and give away a watch.  Today they are giving away the Neon Plasteramic watch ($195) in a pretty purple color that Michelle Obama was just pictured wearing.  The giveaway is open to everyone and they will ship (anywhere!) internationally.  I think it’s a fun contest, plus who wouldn’t want to win a cool watch?  Check it out!

Sorry for the long post, but I’ll be MIA for a few days and wanted to share these things with you.  As always, thanks so much for reading and for writing such sweet comments!  I read and appreciate each and every one!

    dude, not only do you have amazing hair, but you have an amazing figure too! the slouchiness of the blazer is just right for the outfit – great length.

    Love that plaid shirt! I’ve been trying to find a good one, but I never seem to like the color combinations, or proportions of the stripes. this is perfection!

    Hope you have a great birthday and have fun on your trip! Respect for doing the marathon thing… my guy is totally into that, but I don’t think I could handle it… though I’ve recently taken up running again. Oh, and traveling while blogging only works if you’re so stuffed with food, you can hardly move anymore and typing is the only physical activity you’re capable of ;)

    Great legs girl!! you are rockin’ those shorts! and love the way you styled this look! Incredibly cool, reminds me a bit of Chloe Sevigny and the Olsens.
