Ten Truths.

A few groups of some of my favorite blogs have been doing this tag called "10 truths".
All of them tagged anyone who wanted to do this, and since I am lacking inspiration for another post and extremely bored on a rainy and gloomy Sunday evening, I decided to partake in this fun tag :)

1. When I am sad or in a gloomy kind of mood where I'm just too lethargic to do anything else, there are a few things that will cheer me up, or at least curb more boredom for a few hours. One, is a bad (but oh so entertaining) Lifetime movie, the cheesier, the better.
Another, is a spoonful of Nutella. My mom is French and apparently her mother gave her spoonfuls of Nutella for dessert when she was a child. My mom did the same with Pat and I, therefore my arteries will probably be clogged by the time I'm 30 from indulging in spoonfuls of Nutella when I'm feeling down.
I also go straight to the Kraft Mac n' Cheese when I'm feeling down. Something about it is so scrumptious that I forget about the calories and just indulge.

2. I am a born runner. I'm pretty much all legs (I used to get in trouble in my private school because shorts had to be at our fingertips, and since my legs were so long, everything looks short on me). I played varsity soccer for four years in high school, and was on a wing because all I could do was run - I lacked the coordination to really do anything else, but I could get to the ball before other people. Now, running is an addiction. I love the way that it makes me feel, and even though it kicks my ass, nothing makes me feel better. I'm now training for my first marathon in September!

3. I'm in school studying to become an elementary education teacher/reading specialist, but I'm not 100% sure that's what I want to do. I feel like I'm only 21 and it's okay that I'm not sure what I want to do with my life (just don't tell my parents, they will murder me!). Lately I've been thinking of possibly going to India for a few years with a program that allows you to work with/counsel girls and women who have been forced into prostitution. I think I'd be pretty good at something like that, and I like the idea of stepping outside of my comfort zone to help someone else. I have not brought that up with my parents yet, I don't know how they'd feel about me taking a few years off from "the real world."
Another option I'm exploring is getting my masters in counseling and then working as a counselor to girls with eating disorders. I figure that I went through that for a reason, and it would be amazing to use what I went through and grew from to help someone else in a similar situation. We'll see what happens though.

4. I love people watching. I think that's why I love New York City so much. I think that I could honestly sit in Central Park just watching people for hours and hours. During the summer, I go into the city as much as I can with friends, and picnic and then just watch the different people. The little old ladies who walk by without a care in the world (when many tourists who are a quarter of their ages are walking around with fanny packs to protect themselves), the little children who run around without a care in the world with their Upper East Side nannies racing after them...everyone has a different story, and I like to imagine the kind of lives that these people are living.

5. In small quarters, I am extremely messy (but organized messy and never sloppy). My mom once informed me that she wouldn't complain about how disorganized my room is if she gave me something in my room to find and I could find it in 10 seconds or less. Let it be known, my mother never complains about my organized mess - I can find anything in there anytime I want to and it's mostly just an accumulation of clothes on the floor.
Anyway, the weirdest thing is that when I babysit and the house is a mess, I find myself going crazy and I always clean up. So I guess that there is hope that when I have my own space bigger than one room in a house or a tiny dorm that I'll be able to keep it nice and organized. Here's to hoping!

6. I am extremely nerdy. In high school, I went through my huge partying phase, and now I'd rather lay low than go out all the time. Some of the best times that I've had with my friends have been just swimming in my pool and having a cookout in the summers, playing pool, smoking hookah in my backyard, or playing board games (!). I have an obsession with the game Clue, and no one in my family wants to play Monopoly with me because I always kick everyone's ass.

7. The two things that I hate more than anything are sharks and feet. I am 100% terrified of sharks - I have never seen Jaws and never will because I'm really afraid it will haunt my dreams forever. I honestly don't know where this came from because I don't think I've ever watched a movie with a shark in it, but when I was little I used to have nightmares that my family was gobbled up by sharks. Oh, and during Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, my dad and brother make sure to DVR every episode, and turn it on whenever I come into the room. Thanks guys.
I also think feet are gross. I would never ever put someone's feet anywhere near my face, and preferably not near my body. My roommate one time rested her feet on my lap while we were watching TV and I almost punched her.
If I ever saw a shark with a foot in its mouth I think I would absolutely die.

8. I have broken my nose five times. The first, when I was in second grade and my brother punched me in the nose because I hid behind a couch, and jumped out and scared him. My parents said I kind of brought it upon myself. The second was snowboarding for the first time, when I landed flat on my face and just felt it break again. The third and fourth were both during soccer - that was fun. And the last was snowboarding again when I absolutely bit it trying to go off a ramp - very niceee. And now when it's freezing cold out, the side of my nose turns an impressive shade of purpleish. It's quite attractive.

9. I love the outdoors. I feel like this comes as a shock, because when I announced to my best guy friends A and J that my roommate and I are planning a camping trip, they asked if we knew how to light a fire without blowing ourselves up. Little do they know, little Allison spent many summers camping with her family, and watch Survivor, therefore I know how to start a fire, that I need to boil water, and to not bring heels along on the trip. But seriously, I'm an outdoorsy kind of girl - I love hiking, biking, swimming...I appreciate nature and the beauty of it.

Proof, that I do love the nature, even as a young'n.

10. I could watch any Alfred Hitchcock movie over and over again. Psycho is one of my favorite movies ever, and Rear Window coming up close behind. He was just a master of suspense, and his work transcends generations. I've spoken with my grandfather about how he was just as obsessed with the movies when he was younger, and I think it's cool that so many generations can relate to the same movies.

So, anyone with some time on their hands who wants to tackle the "ten truths" tag - go for it!

Summer Style.

Maybe it's because I'm still on an OC high (I'm currently at home, where I'm rescuing my remaining seasons of The OC from my mom to bring back to school to watch during my minimal downtime). Or possibly, the fact that the spring weather is finally kicking in, which makes me think about all the clothes I need to buy. Whatever it is, I've been thinking about people who I would definitely consider fashion icons. There are of course the obvious - the Olsens come to mind first, and I honestly think that just about every female (and a good percentage of males) recognize how genius they are at pulling together kick ass outfits.

This post however, I will be focusing on the adorable Rachel Bilson. I think that she is one of the most gorgeous actresses in Hollywood, and in such a natural way. Plus the fact that she is a hipster at heart, is always seen with her adorable dog, and drives a Prius makes me adore her even more.

While her red carpet fashion is always gorgeous, I think it's her street style that sets her apart even more. She always looks impeccable, and extremely well put together, without looking like she spent hours trying to figure out what to wear.

I think some people have a natural ability to dress well, while others will strive for it their entire lives and just be a little off (such as one of my roommates, who paired a black dress that was ill fitting with sheer white leggings - p.s. it was rainy/muddy all day - and a white cardigan to wear to a funeral tonight). Rachel Bilson is definitely the former in this category - she just seems to "have it."

Plus, I am a complete and total Wayfarers whore (my parents think it's crazy to spend $150 on what they call "Risky Business" sunglasses), and Rachel constantly seems to be sporting them.

But don't take my word for it...

The War Continues - East vs. West Coast.

First, I want to thank you all for your sweet wishes that I have a better upcoming week. Here's to hoping the best for all of you and myself this week! You're all just too sweet for words, honestly.

On Friday I took a very much needed "self" day. I went and got a fantastic mani/pedi and eyebrow wax, went to Rita's for free Italian ice day (mango, thank you very much), and then went to Panera where I bought dinner and brought it back, and then watched an entire disc of the second season of The OC (I lead a fascinating life, honestly). Anyway, while watching, I began thinking of all the similarities between The OC and Gossip Girl, hence the reason for this post :)



While set on opposite coasts, both The OC and Gossip Girl focus on the lives of the upper class society types - each show has unbelievably intense drama, illegitimate children, teen angst, and parents who are just as effed up as their children. AKA, the perfect mindless teen dramas which are lovely for licking your wounds on a boring Friday night, as well as gushing over the gorgeous clothes they all wear.

Ryan Atwood vs. Dan Humphrey.


dan humphrey

Ryan - outsider who comes into a situation completely different from his own and falls in love with a girl who could be considered out of his league. Ryan is a hardcore badass, brooding, constantly getting in fights (one with the classic line, "Welcome to the OC bitch!), bailing people out of trouble, and helping his girlfriend who is constantly in one mess or another with her life. He also has this uncanny ability to spot situations that are just not right (Oliver, anyone?), even when his friends are convinced he is overreacting (and he is always right, always).

Dan -outsider who attends a school with people completely different from him who just don't get him, and falls in love with a girl who could be considered out of his league. He is super bookish, extremely smart, brooding and highly self concious. Often over thinking, over talking, and mumbling, Dan is simply too naive for the harsh world of the NYC elite. He also has the ability to come across as tres judgmental.
Similar? I think so.

WINNER - Ryan. I do love Dan, really I do, but he just doesn't totally do it for me. Maybe I just have a penchant for boys who wear sweatshirts and wife beaters with a hero complex, but I just adore him.

Marissa Cooper vs. Serena van der Woodsen.


Marissa- Beautiful, completely effed up, terrible relationship with her mother, OD's in Tijuana, blacks out at a ton of parties, part-time lesbian, has the most kick ass wardrobe ever, in love with the bad boy next door who she has an on again off again relationship with for three years, shoots the brother of the boyfriend next door when brother tries to rape her, expelled from school and goes to the horrors of public school, meets new guy at public school who falls in love with her and sadly falls off a cliff and dies (as I type this, I really do know how ridiculous it sounds, I promise). Ends up sorting out her life, graduating high school and decides to work on a ship with her father only to be killed on her way to the airport.

Serena - Beautiful, was pretty messed up but is making a huge turnaround, wants people to see how much she's changed. Smart and tries to do the right thing, but it constantly doesn't work out for her that way. Had sex with her bff's boyfriend, ran off the boarding school, did coke with a guy who ODed and died in front of her and was blackmailed. Dates Dan Humphrey who brings out the best in her, then finds out that their parents had a child together.

Winner - Marissa. That much angst and problems from someone who is so beautiful is fantastic. Her drama and stories never seem to get old, and up until the last minute she was on the show, the storyline really revolved around her and what was going on in her life.

Summer Roberts vs. Blair Waldorf.


Summer - Rich, princess, goes from loving Juicy Couture tracksuits and intense makeup to being somewhat of a flower child. BFF to Marissa Cooper, extremely smart (though no one knew until she got a near perfect SAT score and went to Brown), in love with Seth Cohen, breaks up with Seth Cohen and dates another pretty boy with a lack of personality, gets back together with Seth. Very cute and bubbly, funny, goes from being shallow to super aware, from fashionista to hippie and activist.

Blair - Cold, calculating, manipulative. If she wasn't so freaking loveable, you would just hate her. Loves headbands, Yale, bff to Serena van der Woodsen, has terrible relationship with mother (though it seems to get better with time), parents divorced because father is gay, she will tear down anyone who stands in her way of what she wants. While she comes off as a complete and total bitch, she does have a sweet side and will do anything for her friends. Loved Nate Archibald, lost her v card to Chuck Bass in back of limo, and since fell in love with him.

Winner - Blair. I love Summer, and relate to her more, but something about Blair's bitchy exterior is just fantastic. Plus, I do love all her headbands. She is the type of character that is shocking, but still so loveable.

Lily van der Woodsen-Bass vs. Kirsten Cohen vs. Julie Cooper-Nichol.




Lily - Smart, beautiful, super rich, rebel. In love with Rufus Humphrey and had an illegitimate child with him much to the chagrin of her mother. Comes off as a bitch in the earlier episodes but just becomes more and more loveable as she stands up for her children and herself. A cross between Julie Cooper and Kirsten Cohen.

Kirsten - Smart, beautiful, socialite, free spirit. Tries so hard to impress her father and please him, but not to much success. Comes off cold in the first few episodes, but the "stray" boy that her husband brings home allows her to open up her heart. Alcoholic, goes to rehab when drinking gets out of control, easily manipulated because she's just so sweet.

Julie - Unbelievably manipulative, goes after what she wants and doesn't care what it takes to get it, sleeps with her daughter's ex boyfriend, marries her friend's father and later tries to kill him, lives in a trailer for quite a while, serial dater, money hungry, ex porn star. She completely effs up the lives of her daughters in the first few seasons, but actually turns out to be a sweetheart.

Winner -Draw. All these women are fantastic, so it is clearly impossible to pick one favorite :) P.S. Wouldn't it be amazing if Kelly Rowan (Kirsten) guest starred on Gossip Girl?!

Nate Archibald vs. Luke Ward


Nate - Super rich, effed up family life - catches father doing coke, mother finds the coke and blames Nate, Nate takes fall for his father, but then turns in his father. Father then goes to prison for embezzlement. Cheats on girlfriend with her best friend (classyyy), breaks up with girlfriend, crushes on a 15 year old. Pretty boy (too pretty if you ask moi), lives on his own, sleeps with much, much older woman who then blackmails him.

Luke - Super rich, water polo player, bully (who says the immortal line "Welcome to the OC, bitch), effed up family life - his father turns out to be gay (and Luke witnesses his father making out with the "business partner") so parents divorce and gay father moves to Portland. Cheats on girlfriend with her best friend and is totally busted at a party, loses girlfriend to new guy in town, bonds with ex girlfriend's boyfriend and becomes good friends with him. Sleeps with ex girlfriend's MOM, drives drunk and has bad accident, moves to Portland to live with gay dad.

Winner - Nate. More of a main character, we get to see an insight to his angst and struggles. You just want this kid to succeed and to do the right thing. Plus, he's been around a lot longer than Luke.

Rufus Humphrey vs. Sandy Cohen


Rufus - Washed out musician, who is making a comeback, in love with Lily van der Woodsen -Bass, has two children and an ex wife who cheated on him and now lives in Hudson. He's pretty chill, extremely liberal, and seems like the cool dad. He's pretty intense at times, very smart and artsy.

Sandy - Lawyer, from NY with a strong accent (still), married up, still isn't used to the world of The OC elite. Very sarcastic and witty, loves bagels, surfing and his wife, doesn't get along with his father in law, has a very big heart.

Winner - Hands down, Sandy. He's witty, he's smart, he's a sweetheart, and super, super funny. I adore him.

Bart Bass vs. Caleb Nichol.
bart caleb

Bart - gagillionaire hotel owner, marries younger woman who doesn't really love him, looks into that younger woman's background through the help of a P.I., tragically dies in a car accident. Has a terrible relationship with his son Chuck, but leaves the company in charge of his son as a testament that he really does believe in him. So touching.

Caleb - gagillionaire (or so we thought) who runs a company called the Newport Group that deals with acquiring properties. He is involved in a scandal involving an illegitimate child, nearly loses his daughter, marries a much, much, much younger (and gold digging) woman (who happens to be the nemesis of his daughter, and sadly suffers a heart attack before the gold digging woman has a chance to poison him. Writes a lovely apology letter which is given to his daughter at his funeral. So touching.

Winner - Caleb. Caleb just has a certain charming element - perhaps it is his witty banter with his son in law Sandy who he despises, or his brutal honesty. Bart was just a character who was there, and I was not really so saddened by his death, though his character was a pretty big role in a lot of the drama that went on in Gossip Girl.

Seth Cohen vs. Chuck Bass.

Now, I know the two of them do not seem like the likely pairing. But both are unconventional, witty, and pretty freaking hot. Though I do think that the two would obviously hate each other if they were in the same vicinity.

Seth - outsider, who is absolutely friendless until meeting Ryan Atwood, who becomes his adopted brother. Gets a girl way out of his league, messes it all up, finally finds happiness with her. Hysterical, sarcastic, super, super witty. Dabbles with pot, skips his Brown interview, burns down his mother's office by mistake. Impossible not to love.

Chuck - outsider, but more because he wants it to be that way, loves scarves, extremely metrosexual in his fashion, man whore, manipulative - so much of the drama on Gossip Girl revolves around one of Chuck's schemes. Takes the virginity of his best friend's girlfriend when they have been broken up for approximately 15 minutes. Loses father and is faced to deal with all his emotions, and we kind of see, he's not really such a bad guy after all. Another one who sticks up for his friends til the end. Don't mess with Chuck Bass, or his signature excuse/line for everything, "I'm Chuck Bass."

Winner - Draw. I seriously cannot pick between the two because I adore them both so much.

The villans - Georgina Sparks vs. Kevin Volchok.
georgina volchok

Georgina Sparks
- ruthless, bitchy, manipulative. Actually slips her former bff GHB so that she doesn't make it to the SAT's in time, pretends to be someone else to get close to the asfomentioned ex bff's boyfriend, and blackmails ex bff. Meoww.

Kevin Volchok - Drug addict, tattooed, super poor, sexy as hell, mayjah cheater. Brings his girlfriend to prom only to openly cheat on her there, holds her hostage one night to try and beat the hell out of her girlfriend, keys a Range Rover with the inscription "Lil Bitch." Oh yeah, and runs someones car off the road thereby killing his ex girlfriend. Sweet.

Winner - Volchok. While Georgina is ruthless and a complete and total bitch, I think that killing someone kind of puts you above blackmail. Maybe I'm wrong though.

The bitchy sisters - Kaitlin vs. Jenny.
kaitlin jenny

Kaitlin - Comes back to the OC from boarding school and upsets everyone's lives - steals money from a fraternity and lies about it, tries to steal the boy her sister (Marissa) secretly has a crush on, gets him drunk and he then plummets to his death off a cliff, she deals weed to Seth, and gets in all sorts of shenanigans. Desperately jealous of Marissa.

Jenny - Starts out as a sweetheart, desperate to gain the attention and favor of Ms. Blair Waldorf and basically being Blair's little bitch. This quickly turns to Jenny stealing a $50,000 dress from a friend, turning on Blair in an instant, becoming a "mean girl," dropping out of school, and hooking up with Nate Archibald, who her bff Vanessa loves. Drama drama. Oh, she also sported a mullet and raccoon eye makeup. Sweet.

Winner - Sorry Kaitlin, as bad as you were, Jenny has you beat. Jenny is the ultimate good girl gone bad, and I'm not buying her whole changed personality. It won't last long.

The OC ends up winning this little tally. But don't worry Gossip Girl, you have plenty of time to catch up ;)


Agree or disagree on any? And don't worry, I am well aware I have no life :)

The Dark Side.

So, I can't lie - it's been a pretty awful week (I say this because for me, my weekend officially started today at 2:20 p.m. - I do know it's Thursday!). I got my little heart broken slightly, had insane amounts of homework/papers/presentations (and had to do the majority in the library since I just got my computer back yesterday night), and I've pretty much been a mess (especially since my hair is just not cooperating at all).

Instead of writing a massively negative blog since I know that even though I feel like it does right now, my life does not suck that much - I decided to focus on something that makes me happy instead - photography.

I've already shared with you guys my adoration for my boy Tim Walker in a previous post, so now I'm going to move on to someone that I consider to be very similar in style to Mr. Walker, but with a much more dark and almost depressing kind of style.

While Tim Walker's photographs exude light and color and fantasy, the work of Spanish photograph Eugenio Recuenco is very dark, with some color, but a very depressing overtone. Last night as I hung out with my roommate, I was flipping through Recuenco's portfolio just fascinated with his work. It was definitely not my first view of his photographs, and maybe it was just my somber mood last night, but I definitely felt as though I was seeing them with new eyes.

Apparently he is an extremely stubborn photographer, and is unrelenting in his dreams and desires for capturing what he believes is the perfect photograph, so a lot of people do not want to work with him. Still, pain in the ass or not, he delivers beautiful photographs. He uses a more pictorial form of photography when being compared to others, and has a very unique personal style that is conveyed in every photograph (though some on his portfolio took me completely by surprise!).

Anyway, these are some of my favorites from his portfolio.


I love this one.



This one totally reminds me of my boy Hitchcock's film "The Birds."



Even fairy tales get a somber tone in Recuenco's photographs:


You can view his entire portfolio here.

Blogging at Home and School.

When darling blogger Dapper Kid tagged me to share where I blog, and the things around me while I do so, I knew that I could not risk an allergy to cabbage, so I would have to complete this task.
It is so delayed, and the pictures are not of the best quality because I am still awaiting the arrival of my new Nikon! Also, my computer completely crashed and is in the shop, so I am using my roommate's computer (which is why there is no picture of my computer in this - and as an excuse for my blogging delay).

1. Once you are tagged, post a picture of where you blog.
2. Feel free to tell us a little about your space, or explain certain items in more detail. Or not.
3. Link back Daddy Likey's original post.
4. Tag five other bloggers to show their blog spots.
5. If you are tagged and do not participate, you will become allergic to cabbage.

While I am at home, I am rarely in my bedroom, unless I am sleeping. I enjoy being downstairs with my family, so I usually do my blogging in the midst of all the chaos going on downstairs - the dog is barking too loudly, my dad came home from work and just surprised my mom saying that we'll be having clients over in forty minutes for dinner - something is always going on. I usually find myself sitting on the floor, propped up against the couch and wrapped in my favorite warm blanket, while I tune out everything else going on and blog about whatever I am currently interested in. My house has a very open floor plan - there are no walls between the kitchen, family room and dining room, so my mom is always up asking me what I'm blogging about today, or sitting with me catching up on whatever Perez has to say (she has also seen quite a few of your blogs and thinks I have some very talented blogging friends!).

This is where I usually am camped out. I prop myself up with one of my mom's zebra pillows (which I had originally thought were tacky but they are now growing on me).


This blanket is constantly wrapped around my body, for the softness and because my house is usually an Arctic temperature (I blame all the windows).



I am perpetually hungry. I don't know if it is out of boredom, or what, but whenever I blog, I am always munching on something, or especially drinking something (I prefer La Croix seltzer in lime or a delicious Pellegrino). Luckily, my parents have a mini fridge stocked with just drinks, so I don't have to walk that whole extra twenty feet to the big fridge. That would be much too much of a hassle ;)

Once I get back to school, it becomes a whole different situation, especially because now instead of having a whole house to roam through and find a good and comfortable spot for blogging, I am confined to a room the size of a closet which I share with someone else (let me tell you, it is a struggle making the closet space work!). My roommate and I have made the best of it - we bunk our beds to allow space for a couch, and we try to keep things relatively neat and organized (she is much more organized and neat than I am though, though she is inspiring me to get better!).

I can never find myself sitting at a desk doing work - I crave comfort when I'm doing things and the thought of sitting in a chair with my long legs confined to a small space gives me the chills (I know, dramatic much?!). My desk has become more of an extra surface for me to put all my crap - scattered with things that I usually am grabbing at the last minute when I run out the door late for class, or work, or to pick up a friend. I really do try and clean it...but things just accumulate so much that I give up. I consider it an organized mess :) I think it's quite obvious that this poor desk has never been studied on, wouldn't you say?

Being at school definitely does not change the fact that I am always hungry. I try to eat healthy - my mom is BIG into organic, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, so I justify all my snacking to myself :) My school favorites are raw sunflower seeds, Trader Joe's white pomegranate tea, and Annie's organic mac and cheese. Yum!

As I lay sprawled on the lovely carpet (which is a stunning mix of orange, green, tan and off white), behind me is a huge bulletin board. This once very bland beige board is now covered with an array of things - articles from magazines that A or I thought were especially funny or cute, parking tickets and court summons (whoops), both of our calendars (mine is Tim Walker's), jewelry, notes that we write each other, and my favorite thing - our quotes. She and I say so many stupid/funny things so often that we decided to write them all down. This started out as just one mass quote paper (written in all different color Sharpies, so it's at least pretty to look at) and then stemmed to our stupid quotes, where we write down the dumb things that each other has said. For example, when A thought that a komodo dragon was someone who dressed up in a costume and put on a show, that immediately went up on the stupid quote wall. It sounds very immature of us as I'm writing this, but that's okay.

My side of the jewelry wall, basically for all my oversized necklaces. The rest are crammed in a jewelry box somewhere, and I do wish I could remember where I put them...

I'm ashamed that I don't have more books here at school, but quite honestly, my love for reading is squashed by the amount of reading I have to do for all my classes. So I do the best I can :) (I do think that I've been reading In Cold Blood for the past three months though).

Since A and I are both elementary education majors, we have to do a considerable amount of artwork for our classes. So I now present to you, the museum of A and A.

I do hope that wasn't terribly boring for you all.

The fantastic people that I would like to tag are:
Amy at My Pointe of View.
Jocelyn at Pieces of Jocelyn.
Molly at Ashcan Rantings.
Amy at AmyNicola-ox.
Eddie at The Maverick Life.
Carrie at Couture Carrie.
Lindsay at La Belle Vie.
Elizabeth at Unbeweavable.
Nicole at Loquaciousness.

Enjoy darlings. And make the most out of your last day of the weekend!
