I can't believe another year is coming to an end. Good riddance I say......2009 was not the best year for me, (started off great, ended terribly). So, needless to say, I'm super pumped for 2010. I'm finally out of my aircast, can put on my dancing shoes, and welcome 2010 in with a bang!
Not to say 2009 was all bad, I did have some great moments. Travelled...exciting trips with  family and friends, watched some great films and was definitely inspired by the world of fashion and beauty.

Here's what made my list of top inspirations for '09:

1. NYC- Of's at the top of my list. I write about New York all the time and have nothing but amazing things to say about this great city. Was super impressed by Willamsburg, Brooklyn. Totally want to go back, in for nothing else but the hot guys! :)

2. GLASGOW- 2009 was my second trip to Glasgow and I have to say that it was just as amazing as the first time I went there. If going to the UK, Glasgow shouldn't be overlooked. It's quite the hub of artistic energy, great fashion, music and amazing curry!! ( the best I ever had was on Sauciehall st...brilliant)!
I also have a serious weakness for Scottish men. Love those baby-blues!

3. MARC JACOBS- This man is brilliant and I have loved everything he has done this year. Not to mention he's looking amazing these days. Can't wait to see what he has up his sleeve for 2010.

4. HAIR AND MAKE-UP- This is on he list, not only is it because it is my job to know what the latest trends are for hair and makeup are, but because I am border line obsessed with the world of beauty. That's why I do what I do, to create and inspire. I wouldn't have it any other way.

5.1950's- This will probably be on my list every year. I love pin-ups and anything to do with the look of the 1950's.  Besides being somewhat of a feminist, I was born in the wrong era.

6. MADMEN- So now we've moved on to 1963. Don Draper, hot! Betty= my girl crush January Jones. I love the writing, the sets, the characters.....want to become that too much to ask? (Joany minus her loser husband though).

7. FILMS- Topping my list of films for 2009 was Inglourious Bastards. Say what you will, but I still love Tarantino. I'm not so big on all the violence... but the acting, costumes, sets, storyline, were all superb. I still love that scence with Shosanna getting ready, (near the end) with the Bowie song playing in the background....AMAZING! My friend Erin will know what I'm talking about.

So, that rounds off my list of inspirations for 2009. I may have forgotten a few things, but this is what comes to mind right off the bat.  What has been a source of inspiration for you in '09? Anything in common?
