A few years ago on a trip back to Minnesota, I stopped by the outlet mall for a bit of shopping before heading up to Fargo for Homecoming. I managed into Nine West (a personal favorite…..) and found this amazing pair of brown knee high boots with a gold buckle around the ankle. Jokingly I said to my friend Stacy, “These are definitely on my Best of 2008 purchase list.” Since then I’ve made that comment about a few of my purchases (the Mackage coat I got in the Meat Packing District last year, my house, etc.). This year, I actually decided to publish my ‘Best of 2010′ list. Kinda like Oprah’s favorite things, but my readers don’t get any free stuff (sorry!). So….. here goes!!!
Most of you know, I’m a sucker for movies, music, and books as well….. So here are some of my 2010 favorites in these areas.
Movies: I don’t go to the theater often, so when I do – you can be guaranteed that it’s either for Johnny Depp or the movie looks really good. I found a nice mix of both this year……
Music: I tend not to listen to a lot of mainstream music. As I was preparing this post, I came to the realization that of all the albums I bought this year – none of them were made in 2010! Most recently – Gorillaz ‘Demon Days’ 2005, Jem ‘Finally Woken’ 2004, Air ‘Moon Safari’ 1998 and ‘Premiers Symptomes’ 1999, Elton John ‘Caribou’ 1974, and Frou Frou ‘Details’ 2002. Fortunately, my family assisted me with this! Here are the three CD’s I got for Christmas – all made in 2010!
I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet…. but I did ask for them so they can’t be too bad, right?
Here’s wishing all of you a prosperous 2011!
