Happy 2011! I'm so ecstatic that a new year has finally come, because I feel it's a new beginning for me. I enjoy starting fresh, and the new year is the best time to do that! My new year's resolution this year is to try to be less judgmental of myself and others. I'd also like to start walking my dog more and flossing my teeth every day.

I'm really thrilled that I've finally been able to achieve the milkmaid braid hairstyle, I have attempted it a few times and was never successful. Thanks to a video made by The Haute Pursuit that you can watch here and Cupcake and Cashmere's how to instructions found here, I did it without frustration. 

Referring to the title, it's one of the many genius songs from Rent. I've been so obsessed with it lately, since I recently saw a production of it at a friend's school. The music is amazing, and it always finds a way to get stuck in my head! xo Ella
