post-Christmas boredom

The day after Christmas is a perfect excuse to be a sloth. I really don't have anything productive in mind. I just wanna become one with the couch. But after two hours of clicking the remote and browsing all the channels the nth time, there is no more boring than doing nothing. I got up and start blogging.
Here's my laid-back going-home outfit yesterday.

How funny I forgot to ask for a copy of our Christmas photos. The time I get it I'm sure it'll be overdue.

My shoes are not helping me at all.

With dad.

Moving on, I just wanna share this photo from U.S. Vogue January 2010 with my favorite Knicks player, Gallo (Danilo Dallinari).

He is such a cutie in and out the hard court! And he's really good too. Seeing him play yesterday wearing a red and green shoes made my Christmas beyond complete. Then they lost, my Christmas was back to complete again. Actually I officially fell in love with him after watching this video. HILARIOUS! I'm sure you'll love him too.

One of the many things that'll thrill me when the year is coming to an end is a new and pristine daily planner. I am so particular with my schedule. My day will not be complete without running through it. I'm a little OC in that aspect coz I really really really hate procrastination. For me, by setting my priorities straight and managing my day right gives me more time for everything. Time is too precious to waste. Here's what I got for 2010.

I usually keep a big one for my daily devotions.

And this little guy will live in my purse. This planner is sooooooo me. It looks so perfect but come June and this will look like it went to a washing machine.

A peak inside the smaller planner. I can't believe 2009 is over. 2010, bring it on!
This is it for now. I'm gonna go and tail off my boredom by the help of this book.

Everyone should have a copy of this. I love it to pieces.
Have a great one lovelies!

oh me too! christmas aftermath is sooo boring. i should also get that daily planner. not sure if i keep them at the end of next year. lol

you look great with your laid back outfit!

Leah said...

Betz, this is my favorite of all your outfit posts (not because it's stripes and black hehehe!) but you really look effortless chic in this ensemble. You have to do this look more often.

I also am so OC when it comes to organizing my schedule that's why I need a planner/journal. I love that you have a separate journal for your daily reflections.

Jen said...

The Fashion Book is all anyone really needs for survival. It sounds like you had a lovely snow adventure in heels as well. Happy holidays.

bowsnhearts said...

Ooo You have snow there!

We had a sunny Xmas in Australia. I haven't seen snow at all. I can't wait to visit somewhere with snow.

Leah said...

Betz, kaya type ko monochrome outfits kasi nakaka-tangkad tignan. Stay away from outfits that will cut your body and legs para matangkad ka tignan. Monochrome is the way to go talaga.

Sher said...

Oh, I love stripes because it's so nautical! You look fab, dearie!!

Hope you had the best Christmas and hope you're enjoying the rest of the holidays:)

Eat lots!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Love your comfy outfit.. especially the boots! And what great planners for next year... I still need to get one! Hope you had a lovely Christmas :)

Nina said...

Hi Betz!

I missed you ... been out for Christmas ... hope you had a blast?!

Your black and white outfit speaks volumes to me. This combo never fails!

We are the very same about planners. I do a daily list everyday to keep track of my progress (or otherwise). How cool that we both do this AND can only accomplish the abovementioned by diaries that are fashionable as well, right?


Kristin said...

Definitely the perfect day for relaxing. Love the booties!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Cute casual outfit! You look adorable, as always. I'm so happy you had a good Christmas!
