Today, Heather Flett gives us the low down on her year and shares a few of her favorites.

Here are a few favorites that I must share:

Fashion & Beauty Finds: indi denim. They make jeans custom for your body!

Food Related: either monthly chocolate subscriptions (Charles PMS assortment) from or the movie FRESH

Tech & Gadgets: my iPhone. Heard of it?

Favorites that embarrass me and horrify my family: cheesy romantic comedies, my Keen shoes, and letting my hair air dry (only my mom hates that one!)

Favorites from 2009:

TV Show:Modern Family, guilty pleasure sitcom that makes me laugh sometimes just thinking about it.

Movie: Loved (500) Days of Summer

Book: Currently can’t put down Po Bronson’s Nurtureshock.

iPhone App: Flixter, movie theater app. Does exactly what I want it to.

YouTube Video: The flash mob of the Sound of Music at that train station in Belgium.

Eye Candy: Now I’m feeling old. Can I still say Brad Pitt?
