lace and ruffles

top: Old Navy; shorts: Forever XXI, flats: H&M; bag: Coach; nails: Essie 'silken cord' and Dare T. Wear 'Hologram Diamond'; watch: Michael Kors

With this weather, you'd never think we will be ringing in a new year in a mere 24 hours and although it seems weird to be wearing shorts when it should be cold, I'm definitely not missing my coat and mittens. This is what I wore for an afternoon of family time and exploring parts of the beach I had never ventured off to before. Vivement l'été to enjoy these new finds to their maximum!

a very pink year

In a fruitless scavenge for Essie's 'pink parka,' I couldn't get pink out of my mind at the beauty supply.
I guess it's a sign that 2012 will be as bubbly (and sparkly) as my choices of nail varnish. As 2011 comes to an end, I can say now that the year was mostly exciting and successful and I'm happy to say we've surmounted our biggest obstacles.
I'm looking forward to stating a new year fresh and revitalized and full of motivation. Maybe if I document my resolutions for the new year on the blog, I will feel more obliged to keep them than if they stay in my paper diary for the next 366 days and so they are...

- Actually work out throughout the year
- Improve my writing skills in French (maybe some will come out on the blog every now and then)
- Be more assertive
- Stop picking at my lips and start taking better care of my skin in general
- Work actively and seriously on personal projects and goals

Happy new year and may all your resolutions and wishes come true !
Love, Mademoiselle on the Metro
