Happy, Happy New Year!

“May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.”
Joey Adams

Kitty cats, I cannot speak for you, but I myself have never been one to make New Year’s Resolutions for the sheer fact that I worry that I will end up disappointed at the end of the year should I be unable to keep them, or do not achieve them over the 365 day period in which they are put into place. Therefore, the only thing I resolve to do over the course of the next year is to step out of the box. Maria Robinson once said “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Over the next 52-weeks I plan on holding fast to these words. To truly carpe diem! That said; I leave you with a playlist of some of my favorite songs (of the moment!) to help you ring in the New Year right!

Falling in Love At a Coffee Shop - Landon Pigg
Vanilla Twilight - Owl City
Any Fun - Coconut Records
Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John
Never Forget You - Noisettes
Tik Tok - Ke$ha
Naïve - The Kooks
Empire State of Mind (Part II) - Alicia Keys
We’re Going to Be Friends - The White Stripes

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Seize the day... I don't have New Year's resolutions too Erika. As my dad always tells me: "live for today sweetie." And I'm doing that ever since. Happy new year my dear friend!

I don't have any resolutions either. If I want to change something about myself, I will just go ahead and do it, no matter the time of the year.

Happy 2010, Erika! Looking forward to continue reading your blog! xo

Sherin said...

I'm not a resolution maker, but always start the year saying that I'm going to have as much fun as possible. Thats a great goal to have.

Hope you had an amazing NYE and hope you have a fabulous 2010!!

Sophia said...

yes, i gave up on resolutions long ago. the fact that it's a new year just doesn't provide much extra motivation for me, i guess.

i love owl city, and your whole playlist actually :)

Rachel @ The Haute Notes said...

Happy New Year, Erika! I hope 2010 is absolutely fabulous for you!

Love your playlist! :)

Mimi said...

Fabulous playlist! That Ke$ha song is very catchy and perfect for the new year. Happy New Year dear!!

S.Elisabeth said...

I'm not making any resolutions this year either! I like your carpe diem one, though. I need to seize the day more often!

Viva La Fashion said...

happy new years!! and i love the song tik tok. :D

Jen Hsieh said...

happy new year erika!!! and i'm in love with landon pigg's song, it defined so many 2009 moments for me :) and i can't help but sing along to tik tok, it's my guilty pleasure.


I love that picture - it used to be my desktop picture :)

And, I'm such a fail with New Years resolutions. I gave up years ago - I can never keep up with them. Besides, you make goals any time in the year! Doesn't have to be on the very first day of the year.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Elizabeth Marie said...

This playlist is ammmmmmmazing. You know which one is my fave, of course!

New year, new us...change your location, change your LIFE.

Love you

Julia said...

I like your non-resolution for the new year and your playlist! I love coconut records and of course lady gaga.

I like your perspective about the new year. I also live by the same rule :D

Ps. Tik tok is definitely a song that should be played in all NYE party. Pretty much sums up 2009 for me :p
