A Sunday

Random thoughts interspersed with random photos I've taken. Yesterday Z and I went to a friend's pool party. She has it every year - going for 5 years now. It's a birthday pool party for her (she and Z were born on the same day so she'll say happy birthday to him when everyone else…

A Saturday

The summer heat is draining. The front flower beds look post-apocalyptic from overgrown weeds. Yet I refuse to go out in the hot and humid weather to pull them. I've never liked hot weather and retreat into dark and cool corners. I've started collecting sweaters and socks for cooler weather. Finalizing my "wants" list for…

Skincare

I mentioned a couple posts back that I spent my Yesstyle credit on skincare stuffs. Here is the haul. I've used this Missha toner before and while I don't think it's necessary, it's a nice luxury to have since I had the money "credit" to use for it. In the haul photo up top there…

Resolutions or goals?

Near the limit

Tuesday: Rosen linen top, YY skirt, Dries Van Noten shoes. I think I'm nearing the point at which I'm comfortable with the size of my wardrobe. I have a few other…

Half-moments

Friday: Banana Republic top, YY skirt, Frye shoes. This weekend was one of those half-moments-of-zen where I was all wabi-sabi about my shoes and clothes. I know it won't last, so I'm writing this down for posterity and to remind myself I need to do what I did this weekend more often. I did a…
