Lauren Conrad's Spring 2008 collection debuted last night and it is all very ready to wear.  In fact, I've seen papo photos of Mz Conrad and she is actually wearing some of the stuff.  Pretty interesting.  Also, most of the outfits have names like "the Audrina dress" or the "Lo top", which is kind of lame, but whatever.  Here are my faves:

WEll, maybe she's teh one that broke up with him - not sure on the particulars.  Either way, Wino and Blake make a good couple.  NO complaints, just shock!

It probably seems like i watch loads of TV, but its all online.  During the writer's strike, this show came on (probably because there was nothing else) and 7 episodes aired.  Now that the strike is over, all the attention is going to the old shows, and I think this one has been cancelled.  BUT IT SHOULDN'T BE!!!! The cast includes Lucy Lu and "Rachel" from THE O.C. Its like a version of Sex in the City, but with less sex and more focus on the working-wife.  I think it has a lot of feminist undertones, which is awesome.  I'm seriously hoping it wasn't cancelled.

I recently heard of this show called "Greek" and I thought it would be completely lame and unrealistic.  Its about frats and sororities and the people in them - all the makings for a cheesy show.  But I really like it!  There's scandal and comedy and a really hot frat boy (leader of one frat - Cappie hahah).  Also, lonelygirl15 and Clark (from Superbad) are regulars.  Its awesome and there are loads of episodes on alluc.  check it out!

Bar Refaeli at the Sports Illustrated Party.  She is the supermodel dating Leo Decaprio... and she is gorgeous!  Finally a modern model with a curvy figure! But is the dress a little tight, no?

Apparently this is the new "Breakfast at Tiffany's", which is one of my favorite movies.  I think the 'Tiffany'-blue background gives it away... also another Audrey will be playing the 'Holly Golightly' character.  And the little black dress! Very excited about this.  Apparently BAT was toned down because Hepburn was unwilling to do certain scenes that were created by Mr. Capote. Now a days an actress has to be up for almost anything, so hopefully the directors don't go the other way and make this film uber dirty...? Anyway, random thought.  Should open March/April.

I recently bought Heller's Catch 22, which seems like I'm reading something out of a BBC comedy.  And that's a good thing! But it feels a little too detached for me, because I like flow and character development when I read for fun.  Don't get me wrong though: I HATE romance novels and novels with fast pace do nothing for me (these include best sellers or dan brown novels). So I googled The Great Gatsby and then searched Amazon.com to find out what books had the same kind of themes found in TGG (which is my favorite book of all time). 

I found lots of books by Arthur Miller (death of a salesman, the cruicible, etc.), john Stienbeck, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Ernest Hemingway.  And so it seems that I have a lot of reading to do over spring break, on top of studying for 2 midterms and writing 2 essays. It is really sad that I am spending all this time of LG when i should be working, but I can't help it - i'm in a slump (btw, is that a word?)!

I've smelt the old Burberry perfumes before, but i think thier new 'The Beat' will be way better.  Inspired by model-of-the-moment, Agyness Deyn, and new Burberry designer, Christopher Bailey, this new scent is supposed to be younger and less musky. I'm hoping its a Sephora so i can camp out and try it out. Maybe it will be so good that it will replace my Vera Wang Princess obsession...

Alright,  so i have a problem (which would be looking for random crap online) - its not my fault that i am getting so distracted! But at least i'm getting my work done (i think), so no harm i guess.  Anyway, i recently went to Forever21, which is all new to me.  Its the only one i know about in Canada, so i went in.  Now the quality isn't great, considering the prices, but the design is good.  So good, in fact, that i am considering investing in some stuff that will stretch from now until fall.  This means dresses and blouses - hopefully they won't tear or anything, because that would make me CRY. As of right now, i think i broke from tuition fees and random dance/travel tickets :S. 

Well, here are some stuff i found that have great design and might last a few times in the dryer (i'm too lazy to actaully hang-dry anything):
Cotton dress ($19.80)
Satin dress ($29.80)
Basimah Pintuck dress (32.80)
Floral embroidered dress ($24.80)
Floral cotton/silk dress ($22.80) - i think it would look way better if you see the dress on a person  - it channels Kate Moss IMO
Floral tunic ($19.80)
Cotton tunic ($24.80)
"Chiffon" top ($22.80)
Jeweled chiffon top ($22.80)
Frayed chiffon top ($34.80)
Satin/chiffon tube dress ($29.80) - maybe a formal-dress option?
