Alrighty, guys. Take a couple minutes to gawk at the puppy dog eyes. Now, let’s read the quote. “Someone is looking up to you. Don’t let that person down.” I chose this image this week because you truly never know who is looking up to you, judging what you do and learning from you. Monkey see as monkey does, and you never know who you’re affecting with your actions. A pet, a child, a stranger on the street, a peer in class or work… Be sure that you’re always putting on your best, and are aware and conscientious of your actions.
Fun Fact: I once (maybe kind of still do) wanted a tattoo across my chest that said “here’s to feeling infinite”, an ode to those moments where life just HITS YOU and is like “you are alive, this is real, this is amazing”. Iconic moments. Many of mine have happened while at NYFW, whether it was being a guest at Alice + Olivia’s presentation or walking the runway myself for Avril Limieux. Other times have been seeing my favorite bands in concert, getting goosebumps in 90 degree weather over live versions of songs I’d played on repeat as a 13 year old.
Nowadays, I’m in a constant state of awe; so grateful for all the good that’s happening right now, even with all the stress it has brought with it. I’m grateful for the best daily company; Z and Maven. And I’m grateful for my conscientious noticing of all the good things I have right now.
I hope you too find things you are grateful for, people that make your life complete, moments that make you feel alive, and passion that lights your fire.
Happy Monday, Folks.
It’s the middle of July. I have yet to go to the beach. Who am I even more? This year’s sandy vacations are starting late, the first one I’ll be headed off to is in two weeks time (I can make it, I can do it). I’m getting by by working my butt off to save some extra money for outlet shopping splurges and innumerable beachside margaritas. Oh, and pondering new items to bring with me! Here’s a peek into my beachy wishlist for this year:
Nothing says “beach vibes” quite like a gauzey caftan from Calypso St Barth; perfect for all day wear, no matter where my beach wanderings bring me.
if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have noticed it has been like THE HARDEST thing in my life to find a swimsuit.Asos fuller bust bikini is a perfect mix of cleavage-covering and cut out bearing.
Mirrored Sunnies a la Ray ban via Urban Outfitters make reading/sleeping less of a spectation.
This Yes Way Rose tote is perfect to carry all my belongings from the house to the sand to the bar.
To pair with the bag, a bottle of 2012 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose, yes WAY.
Book: Darling You Can’t Do Both And Other Noise To Ignore for some light yet positive reading.
Pendleton Towel via South Moon Under to stay dry and cozy while getting my tan on.
Fuji Instax to capture memories instantly. It was on my goals for 2014 to capture more on film, and what better way!
Have you been to the beach yet this summer? What are your beach must-haves?
