Shop the Look
This week’s (random as hell) thoughts:
- Sea salt caramel gelato is my new fav. Never cared for ice-cream of any kind, so I’m glad I’ve decided to delve into that world, and establish a new healthy addiction right before summer…
- Obsessed with my new Rails shirts. My friend works for Rails, which is a really rad, ‘casual meets sophisticated’ apparel company. She gifted me several shirts/blouses and they are now my closet favorites. Their blouses look great with jeans for casual, and high waisted skirt for sophisticated.
- Just started reading the book, “MIND POWER Into the 21st Century” by John Kehoe. A friend recommended it to me. It’s about “tapping into your creativity, improving your self-image, harnessing the power of your subconscious and building fulfilling/real relationships.” I’ve needed to read something like this for quite some time. I could use some brain rewiring and kick ass motivation to not just try, but know I can accomplish my current goals by eliminating certain aspects of my life, and focusing on my aspirations by keeping an ambitious state of mind.
- I’ve fallen inlove with a CC cream and its name is iT. iT Cosmetics has a CC cream called, “Your Skin but Better.” It’s SPF 50, super hydrating, anti-aging, and incredibly lightweight. I’ve never been a big makeup person, (except for the days where I was convinced I was marrying Davey Havok from AFI, and decorated my face in black eyeliner, maroon eyeshadow, and red lips..but that’s a different story..). When my friend recommended this to me (clearly my friends are knowledgable and fuking awesome), I went out, bought it and haven’t stopped using it. **One thing I would recommend is using a finishing spray to get the most out of your buck.
- Final thought: Don’t sweat the small stuff. Ya ya, Easier said than done, I know. However, the other night I watched a documentary on Netflix called Be Here Now, about Andy Whitfield’s battle with Cancer. To be honest, it was incredibly difficult to watch. This beautiful looking man, with a beautiful family gets diagnosed with Cancer in his 30s, right when his life was at the peak of it’s most joyous time. They documented his journey from the beginning stages until his final goodbye. After I watched it, my heart had a heaviness that was unexplainable. I stayed up all night thinking about the possibility of that being me. Of that being Steve. Having to leave my kids with no explanation but…that’s life. We don’t realize how precious life truly is until we are put through a situation that tests our vulnerability and rids our daily anxieties of surface level bullshit. It definitely put everything into perspective after watching it, and helped with my conscientious awareness of that fragility. Enjoying the simple pleasures life has to offer, and looking passed anything too petty to give a single thought towards, is what it’s all about. Because it could be our time at any moment, and as cliche as this sounds, every-fucking-minute- counts.
