Let me start off by saying, I love college football. Yes! I am that girl that sits on a Saturday and watches all the games, starting with ESPN college gameday and ending it with the highlights. I truly think it started when my dad tried to teach my 3 sisters and I the in's and outs of every sport out there. Back then I was wishing I  had a brother as we or should I say I was bored stiff. But as the years went on I really got into football, the traditions and continuous winning seasons. I guess the rest is history as I  fulfilled my dream to attend The Ohio State University and went to every home game.

What a great feeling this morning! I went out to grab a coffee and wouldn't you know there was a line of Buckeye fans at the Original Pantry Cafe downtown LA. For a split second it felt like my second home (Columbus, Ohio). I'm over excited to be joining these buckeye fans tomorrow as I'm going to the Rose Bowl game {jumping up and down}. Friends are headed into town now for the game so I must get off of here and show them what LA is all about.

makeup trend: smokey eyes

smokey eyes 7

I have a small confession...I love makeup. Actually I think I should phrase it, I love to put on makeup. I say that because of all the colors, variations, techniques and tools provided to make something look so good. It was this one Christmas I remember as if it was yesterday that my older sister, Jessica bought me three M.A.C eyeshadows, I've been doomed ever since and have a collection like you wouldn't believe.

I personally love smokey eyes, ultimate fav. I find it to be so sexy and chic. Also perfect for this holiday season! Remember, smokey eyes doesn't have to be black, all colors will work. Imagination can run wild!

Ever curious of what other people are wearing in other cities, states or even countries? I know at least for me sometimes, I get so zoned in my daily routines and regimented schedule that a few days or even weeks go by without me checking - sad to admit but true. Sooo to keep us both up to date I'll be sure to post periodically what our surrounding fashion friends are wearing. And with no further ado, why don't we see what London is up to.

white christmas.

This time next week I'll be visiting family & friends for the holiday and lets just say, I'm SUPER-DUPER excited. What I'm not excited about is the weather. As its in the upper 60's in LA, I'm expecting mid to lower 30's in Ohio...Brrrrr! Since it's been about 9 months since I've experienced such cold temps I am preparing mentally how I'm going to cope. Of course I put an outfit together for my preparation and I used polyvore. Wouldn't you say I'm dreaming of a White Christmas?

Not all items above are available and please believe if the ivory coat was, it'd be mine...its from modcloth! Here are the ones that are:
1. UO - $398 Candela NYC OTK Boots
2. John Lewis - $57 Leather Gloves
3. Aubin & Willis Perkinston - sold out Winter Hat
4. Anthropologie - sold out Handbag
5. F21 - sold out Earrings

**update** 12/17/09 - a reader informed me that there is a similar coat (not white) but still super cute at oldnavy.

runway: twenty8twelve.

I am a huge fan of Twenty8Twelve by Sienna Miller and find all of her designs and creativity so inspirational. I have only pulled some items from her AW'09 collection that I particularly adore, but I suggest to check out her other amazingness for your own personal style. Enjoy!
