The Start of Something New

Happy 2010 to all of you! The holidays are over (in my mind, this occurred yesterday--the 12th day of Christmas!), and it's time to take down the tree and move forward. I get really sad seeing everyone's used-up trees in their front lawn. It's as though they were taken for all their beauty, and then just thrown out to the wolves. I'm not sure why I associate so much life with every object I come across, but that's just how I feel (and perhaps why I've yet to take down ours).

We rang in New Years at a restaurant with family. It was nice to relax, kick back and make fun of each other for a night. If I'm to be honest, we do that on most nights--but to do it as the clock revealed to us a new decade...well, that was somehow different.

As for the look of the night, I kept it simple in all black. It was nearly impossible finding a good photo of the outfit, as the angle from the perspective of a 6'6" husband is majorly unflattering. Photos taken by him have a way of making me look about a foot tall, with two inch legs! So this one's chopped at the waist, but the only thing missing are some leather leggings and studded pumps.

Mouse, Poppy, Coney Island

I had stopped by American Apparel earlier that morning, to check out their much raved about nail polishes. A bright red shade, with an orangey base (Poppy) became the color of the night. All of the colors are flat and opaque. I can imagine that two coats would be the maximum needed to insure that everything is smooth and uniform. Packaging is nice, and true to American Apparel form--but I'd be lying if I didn't say I'll be looking forward to more color options in the future.

While lazying around on New Years day, I discovered my old list of 101 things to accomplish in 101 days. Luckily, I have until 2011 to complete it--but I love lists. Especially bucket lists, and lists of goals. It's the Virgo in me. All in all, I'm happy to have wrapped up 2009. This new year looks so promising, and while we celebrated some pretty amazing things this last year, I'm excited about the possibilities ahead. I'm more than happy to take the memories from this past year with me, as I open myself to everything 2010 has to offer. To steal a quote from my dear friend 'Anapesi's blog, I think my perspective on this are best summed up in this statement:

“In the Pacific, it is generally thought that people walk forward into the past and they walk backwards into the future, where the past and future are constantly fused and diffused in the present…this means that the onus of preserving the past and the mapping of the future- whether they be for culture’s sake or the humanity of future generations--rests squarely on our shoulders in the present." -Hufanga Dr. ‘Okusitino Mahina

What are you looking forward to this year? How was your New Years?

fantastic said...

@cherries in syrup: thank you so very much :) i love crosses too--specifically crucifixes..but if they're jeweled or something, they will do for me :) there's a book (or journal?) called listology..i think it may be right up your alley! xx

@L.Kava: girly, thank you so much! ah, you old lady--fell asleep! i've never been for new years there..i hear it's nuts! btw, heard the funniest story from your hubby about pate...LOL i couldn't stop laughing! xoxo

@Dila: thank you lovey! are you still in istanbul? my brother will be there in a week, and i need to send him with a list!!! help! xx

@Pri*Sila: thank you :) it's all or nothing with the black clothing. either i'm able to be spotted a mile away in some crazy bright color, or not at all! yes, the new header came to me via my lovely cousin...his page is linked on here as Toka Toca :) xx

Dila said...

I'm in istanbul right now for winter break but I'll be back.. Hmm list.. You can order some cheap nail polishes (brand, Flormar) also different kinds of natural soaps.. Wow it's hard to answer this question I live here but I've no idea to reccomend what a shame.. Tali or Muhsine might help you better :)

Muhsine said...

You look gorgeous! X

fantastic said...

@dila: will do! i remember seeing those nail polishes on your blog..perfect :) xx

su-pah said...

Waaaahh! I couldn't agree more with Tali, you truly are a beauty! Your guy is one hella lucky guy!

What were you wearing on your eyes??

And Tali? Your birthday??? This slipped right past me how?

fantastic said...

@su-pah: thanks girl! on the eyes...MAC's mineralized shadow in Gilt By Association..a shimmery green by Cleo (unlabeled), and Illamasqua Solstice. I think I used MAC's cremestick in cuddle as a base..for some weird random reason?! And yes, that girl had a birthday and tried to keep it a secret!! xx

Tali said...

I keep looking at this post!
Partly cause I cant get over how pretty you are and also because i love the pic of your family toasting.
Its weird but the lovely skin color (compared to all the pale (so white.. its actually verging on scary) ppl here) makes me think of home! lol

fantastic said...

@tali: haha! When will you go back? See how my arm is the lightest of them all?! It makes me feel pale in comparison!

beautylogicblog said...

My dear, you should really think about modeling. you're stunning, and i love love that polish. so sexy!

fantastic said...

@beautylogicblog: thank you..that's so sweet :) have you picked up any of the AA polishes? xx

tina_mbc said...

Um hellooooo, see, this is why I 've been telling you to make more photo posts, you 're absolutely striking sweetie! :)))
Looooove the jewellery, bet that it doesn't come much of a surprise, huh? Hehe!
Lol, funny that you mentioned the 12th day of Christmas, here in Greece, it's practically illegal to take down a tree before that! ;) Take your hubby and move over I say! LOL!

Hope that 2010 is treating you well already love! I have great feelings about this year too!!!

Now off to take a look at that list... ;)

tina_mbc said...
