The Björk exhibit is a collection of her multifaceted work as a composer, musician, and singer. The exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and innovative projects and her eight full-length albums to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, and costumes.
I never in my life cared about chipped nail polish. To me, it was just what happened a couple days after painting your nails. No big deal.
Then, in my early 20’s, I worked for a woman that was insane about chipped nails. She hated them. Alot. Capulet and Montague style. And, unfortunately for me, she was my boss. Never did a chipped nail slip past her view without a comment on how disgusting it was. She wasn’t nice nor was she going to let anyone on her team come to work with chipped nails. (more…)
Let me tell you a story about coconut oil. It’s pretty gross… It is also a pretty good way to moisturize. It’s clumpy, greasy, and annoying to get out of the jar. You also need a spoon. Soap never feels like it quite washes the coconut oil off, but somehow that seems reassuring because you’ve managed to finally lock in the moisture.
For the last week I’ve been using coconut oil each morning to moisturize my skin after the shower. To say that my skin is soft seems like an understatement. But, there aren’t so many words for extreme softness so I’ve chosen baby soft. My skin feels baby soft. (more…)
I stopped cutting my cuticles because the process turned into a dangerous roller coaster ride with no stops to get off. Eventually, I just had to jump. (more…)
I don’t talk a lot about fashion because sometimes it feels all-consuming. I work all day in fashion, I have more than a general interest in fashion, and Amiram also works in fashion. After I get home at night, and Amiram and I finish talking about our days, I don’t often feel like talking more about fashion. But, when I love something as much as I love Trouble… I talk about it.
Have you ever had a moment when you just knew you needed to step your game up? Like, you’ve looked like shit for about 3 months in a row and it’s time. It’s just time. For me, this moment came walking home from work one night, most likely in the snow. (more…)
One of my favorite weekend activities is taking a bath. Every year around this time I start to get back into my yoga routine. The weather is a bit nicer and it becomes painfully obvious that bathing suit season is right around the corner. But, getting back into the swing of things is tough. And so, I like to take it slow and spend part of my Saturday afternoons rewarding myself for getting my ass to some sort of exercise with a long relaxing bath.
I was recently reading these bath rituals and I thought to myself, “I want to take a bath like that!” Baths have always made me feel a bit like British royalty in a way. Mostly, because that is what I imagine them doing with their free time. I think that is mainly based on some Downton Abby episodes and most likely not so true for the current monarchy.
