    Ugh, I had a touch of the blues earlier today! I made coffee, listened to music, and bookmarked a bunch of clothing I can’t afford. Probably not the most effective method, but today it was just the trick. I also tidied up my apartment and that helped a bunch. I’m a huge advocate for keeping your space organized and beautiful. It’s difficult for me to feel happy and inspired if my environment doesn’t feel “just right”. I like to let in as much natural light as possible—that’s important! I’ll light candles, research recipes and add items to my grocery list, add pins to my Pinterest account. To me, whenever I have that “cabin fever” feeling, it’s a sign that I may be a little dissatisfied with myself. Reflect a little bit and see which aspects of your life need some color or tending to. Revamp your diet or your wardrobe, organize your environment, clean out the useless junk from your hard drive. Being productive helps me to feel a little more on top of my game, and soon I find I’m not feeling so low anymore. I hope this helps! xo

    Ooh, that sounds really good! I love the caramel apple spice cider from Starbucks, SO addictive. I really love every season, but the energy of Autumn and Winter have always been especially inspiring to me. I could probably list about 100 things I’m looking forward to this year, but to keep things a little less long-winded, I’ll name just five. 1) Halloween. Halloween is one of my absolute favorite holidays. It’s very near to my birthday (November 6th), which makes it that much better. I love candy— Reese’s, candy corn, Necco Wafers, Pez, Hot Tamales, candy necklaces, cubes of caramel…I’m actually beginning to salivate a little, this is embarrassing. Anywhoo, I’ll look for any excuse to buy a bunch of candy, and Halloween happens to be just the holiday for eating your weight in candy corn while you watch Hocus Pocus and Interview With The Vampire. 2) Seasonal scented candles. I actually set aside a reserve of cash specifically for season-specific candles. WoodWick candles that crackle like a toasty fireplace and add Autumn ambiance to your apartment? Those are where it’s at. 3) Pumpkin pie topped with a fluffy mountain of Cool Whip. 4) Going for walks on chilly mornings. It’s super warm where I live, so I like to take advantage of overcast days. I’ll throw together a dreamy (mostly melancholy) playlist and listen to it on my massive headphones. 5) A shift in wardrobe. Summer has got to be the most boring season stylistically. It’s so insanely hot in LA, which makes it challenging to wear a lot of the pieces I gravitate toward most. You’re kind of stuck wearing as little as possible to beat the LA heat. But as it cools off, I love getting creative with my clothing. Knit beanies, faux fur jackets, heavy boots, opaque tights…I’m excited to play with layering different textures and cuts this Fall. :]

    Hi there! You’re not being annoying in the least. I really enjoy answering messages and I’m so tremendously flattered that you would say you admire me! =^_^= First off, I wear very minimal makeup on a day to day basis. I use MAC penultimate liquid eyeliner— though, I’m not sure I’d recommend it, because it seemed to dry out rather quickly. For lipstick, lately I’ve been wearing Rouge Artist Intense #48 by Make Up For Ever. For mascara, I’d recommend Maybelline’s Lash Blast. As far as clothing is concerned, I shop EVERYWHERE. I really like American Apparel and Nasty Gal. Check out http://www.crystalcactus.com for jewelry— there are a million pieces I want. My style is constantly changing, because I use clothing to reflect my current mood or interests. If I want to dress like a nymph or a tiny witch for a day, I will! Mostly my closet is filled with basics— lot’s of black and grey. I draw the majority of my style inspiration from film. I’ll watch a Bertolucci movie like Stealing Beauty or The Dreamers and spend the following couple days in a sun dress with my hair down and untamed. Marie Antoinette, Factory Girl, Almost Famous, Clueless, Empire Records, Moonrise Kingdom, The Great Gatsby…I’ve pulled outfit inspiration from all of these movies, and so so many more. If I were to choose specific people who I admire stylistically, I’d say Mary Kate Olsen (always), I really love a lot of what Taylor Momsen has worn in recent years, OH and Abbey Lee Kershaw! ;]

    I’m very comfortable with nudity, and I find the female figure to be very beautiful. That said, I’m 100% in favor of nude modeling, burlesque etc. I would be very open to the possibility of modeling nude if I felt the photos were artful, tasteful, or correlated with my morals and interests. If I were to do that, I would not be opposed to potentially sharing the finished product. I don’t think I’d ever do anything along the lines of snapping photos of myself via my macbook and posting those directly on the web, HOWEVER, I’d never say never, because who knows what’ll be the norm a couple years from now!
