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.
Remember last Spring? I’ve learned… & I’m Prepared.
I love to be prepared. Especially, when it is for something unpredictable. This is probably because most of the time I am not prepared properly. I am always the one that came out for brunch in a thunderstorm with a suede bag. Or, the one who packed 10 pairs of shorts and 2 pairs of pants for a week in 60 degree weather. I never have the lipstick I want in the bag I am carrying, and the shoes that would look best on the weekends are always at the office. I’m not complaining. Such is life, I am just letting you know why I enjoy the few moments when I really nail it.
There are 5 easy ways that I try to be prepared. They’ve been proven to work for me, but it doesn’t cover everything (obviously). However, if you do end up needing one unexpectedly I promise you will feel awesome in 5 minutes or less. (more…)
I think a lot about beauty… I talk about beauty, I listen to friends talk about beauty, I read about beauty, and I write about beauty. But, mostly I think about beauty. I think about whether or not it is relevant, about whether or not it really matters, whether or not it’s a good use of my time, and pretty much any other type of over analyzing you could imagine.
