RHODAAAHTEH.

Today I somehow managed to get out from under my down comforter and go to Target to do some last minute Christmas shopping. I thought that it being a Sunday and being that we got 12+ inches of snow in the last day or two that it would be relatively stress free. SIKE. I've never seen Target so pack and I had to park really far away. It was a harrowing experience indeed. However, two things made this trip worth it. 1) I completed my Christmas shopping for everyone on my list in one foul (foul?) swoop. 2) Rodarte for Target. Holy sweet mary mother of God. It has to be the best guest designer yet. I contemplated throwing all the presents for others back on the shelves and simply purchasing all of the Rodarte items available in my size but alas, (earwax) I did not. Here's a little eye candy for ya:



NBC was surprised at the turnout for the labels opening. Please. I would give my first born for this collection to appear in my closet free of cost.

Behind the scenes video of the collection. I would post more pixxx but it's kind of hard to find high quality ones online. Yikes. I'll just go back to swooning now.

My Hands are Cold!!!!!

Well, Kimmy did her Christmas wish list post yesterday so I decided I'd jock her style and do my own.

Firstly, I'd like my computer to be fixed. Or at least I'd like to be able to access my hard drive. I feel like Carrie on that episode of Sex and the City where her computer dies and all her writing is gone. I don't think my mind has really processed actually losing all my writing from the past three years as a possibility yet.



Lady Gaga CDs. Either one. Or both!



A waffle ir--- No. Wait!


A Hello Kitty waffle iron! I love waffles and my roommate that owned the waffle iron moved out. So now I got a box of blueberry Krusteaz just sittin' in my kitchen for no reason. Someone give me a dang waffle iron!



Okay. This might seem unnecessary but I both make and transport a lot of cupcakes. Pretty much whenever one of my friends has a birthday party I make cupcakes. I was at Costco with my dad today and saw one of these and hinted at it as a present but I think he either thought it was a joke or just didn't catch on.



Natch.



This movie is one of my favorites ever and its been coming up a lot recently in conversation and I realized I don't own it, which is crazy.


Miyazaki is one of my favorite filmmakers but I've never seen Totoro! (The shame! The horror!) I have been trying to see this movie for literally eight years. This is getting out of control.

And now for the gift I will definitely not be getting:

The only appropriate commentary to go with this picture would be the sound of a hundred of heaven's angels singing but, unfortunately, I don't know how to effectively express that in Times New Roman.

I've Been An Awful Good Girl

Now that exams are over I can focus on what's important-- christmas gifts, FOR ME.


Meyer Lemon Tree, $70



Ballet lessons, $200



Someone to fix my beautiful old Nikon, $Too Much



A latte (preferably one with pretty art like this one) every morning when I wake up, $3.65



A red winter coat. I have yet to find one that I really love though.



A vintage stamp necklace, $36 here.
I first saw these at a really cool store in Philadelphia this summer and I didn't buy them because I thought I could make them myself. That's what I say about everything but I never do.

Tomorrow I'm hitting up all the thrift stores to try and get inspired to make other people fab gifts para Chrismukkah or other multi-denominational holidays. Thank you, OC.
