back.

July 22, 2011

i’ve been settling quite nicely into my new routine.  working 8:30 to 5:30 (6, okay and sometimes 7) everyday.  experimental vegetarian dinners, weekend shopping trips, exploring los angeles, listening to ray la montagne (whom i’m going to see live at the greek theater on september 10th with joanna!), and just  checking in with myself to make sure that..i don’t know..i’m still there?

i love seeing your photos.  you look like yourself. -jamie;
and i know exactly what she meant by that.  anyway.  lately:

{joanna & silas; after hours at garage pizza}

{and then mandy showed up in LA.  i’ve loved these girls since i was a child.}

{sharing a laugh during artwalk}

{and then i got this skirt at zara. for $8.  going to live in it.}

love & light babies.  xx

stars & stripes.

July 5, 2011

this past weekend was quite possibly one of the best i’ve had in LA so far. i worked short shifts at express, read while drinking iced coffee in the sunshine, scored some amazing clothing at american apparel, zara, & j.crew. finally met the adorably, wonderful brooke lemoine after being LJ friends for about 5 years now or something.  instantly we were in love and are already formulating plans for cohabitation in los feliz or hollywood come october (yet another gemini to add to my list of beautiful twin friends). went to a party in culver city, drank some beer, made some veggie kebabs at a poolside bbq, and actually slept in for once!

oh &.
my roommate comes home tomorrow eve. at last.

good eats.

I’m going to try to start updating this blog again (I promised myself that I would once I acquired a new camera), but ultimately I’m really unhappy with the layout/color scheme/everything relating to html so right now a lot of elements are subject to change.  However, I figured I’d post something, so this is what I ate for dinner tonight:


{organic brown rice, sautéed spinach, garlic, red bell peppers, zucchini, & edamame tossed in olive oil}

Los Angeles.

LA is ghetto as fuck.

This girl is saving my life though:

first person.

August 1, 2010

i’m here, okay? i feel a little abused by life, but I’m here, alone (and i think that part was crucial), on the cusp, the interim between this brisk august night and everything that comes next. yet..

yet i still cannot possibly explain how it feels. it’s violent, powerful, i decided not to fight this, i decided only to feel it. Sometimes surrender is necessary to be able to understand that this is what we choose (or what life chooses, either way) and accept it as we plunge full speed into our  most private fears. this is it, that one chance–make it count.
and if not? is failure even within the realm of possibility? and if so..

WHAT ELSE IS THERE?

this is the experience that we as humans inherently yearn for, symbiosis in perfect balance . garrett is the only person to whom i have ever felt wholly and completely joined with such intensity, love, mutual respect, and reverence. he is the most natural part of my life, the embodiment of everything that makes sense to me unfailingly.

it just is.

we carry each other despite the fact that we know that the other person can carry him or herself, we do it to make life easier, gentler, & lighter for each other.
that in itself is something to be present for.

The Pretty and the Reckless

July 10, 2010

I admit I’ve had some pretty strange attractions lately (vegetarian “chik patties”, baby pink everything, etc.), so let’s also add to that:

taylor momsen.  yes, in all of her pouty, angsty, glory.  okay so the girl swears during interviews,  dresses like a hooker most of the time, and smokes cigarettes (NOT CIGARETTES!!@!!@#!).  do you remember what you were like when you were sixteen?  and if you were having any fun at all you should know that i’m talking about.  but really she’s the epitome of the truly breathtaking time in life when you first begin to realize that you’re actually a person, and all you want to do is figure out how you can take that newfound knowledge to the edge (and possibly back, but not for at least a few more years).  and what’s more, the girl’s got a voice on her.

and i respect that.

she bangs?

June 14, 2010

so did i mention that on an impulse, 10 minutes before i had to jet out of the door to go to work, i decided that i needed to have bangs?  scissors in hand, i somewhat fashioned a fringe, about which i’m still on the fence.  typical.
