Swimsuit Attire

For my birthday two weeks ago I had the fortune of visiting Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs for some much needed decompressing after my whirlwind semester. In addition to soaking in the grotto a whole bunch, I had a really nice french clay massage and drank mango smoothies all four days I was there.

I've never been a huge bathing suit person. You know all those articles written by older journalists claiming that our younger generation won't ever settle down because now we have too many options to find romantic partners via dating apps/online sites and with so many options we'll never choose? Well I feel that way about bathing suits; I always think there's a better one out there and I just haven't found it yet. (I don't feel that way about love, by the way, I think the people who want to find love will find it, and those who don't will continue to tinder their hearts out. It seems like a self-selecting process, and I don't think as humans we will ever stop falling in love and wanting companionship. That tale is as old as time... anyways, I digress.) All that being said, I think I finally got a good one with this two-tone one piece by 6 Shore Road. The rest of the line is really cute while simultaneously being modern and sophisticated (all good things), so I've linked some pieces down below for you to shop until you can't anymore. Summer isn't officially here yet, so you still have time to find that perfect piece. Then maybe we can all be swimsuit believers together. photo vscocam-photo-4 2_zps672yb3mr.jpg photo IMG_4588_zpsqax7svb2.jpg photo IMG_4589_zpshpjqxtmz.jpg photo IMG_4591_zpsakjfzcxa.jpg photo IMG_4590 2_zpsds7a5euy.jpg photo IMG_4587_zpsusxvuy5f.jpg photo vscocam-photo-5_zpsx6foqxa3.jpg photo vscocam-photo-3_zpssfap8hby.jpg photo vscocam-photo-1 2_zpsyu17qjmt.jpg

Hope you find your perfect bathing suit... and I guess your true love too.

end of the semester photos

School and work and interning is all wrapping up in the next couple weeks, and I am doing my best to accept the change with open arms. I'm not one to end things easily or happily, but as always, change can be an enormously good thing. I'm not sure what I'm doing this summer yet, but maybe doing nothing is the best thing for me? As always, here are some photos from the last couple weeks.
IMG_0051
I went to the opening night of a musical this past weekend, and decided to try the whole "lets make black jeans dressy" look with this older Givenchy top I bought in high school and these super strange American Apparel nude flats which I think they discontinued.
IMG_0045
I've been reading The Spirit Catches You And You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman for my anthropology class and it's really had a profound impact on me. The story is absolutely heartbreaking, but the writing is gorgeous and the information is more than invaluable. A definite recommend if you have the time.

I've been wearing a ton of green and blue lately. This is just a snippet of the things that have been in rotation.

Went to The Grove last week, and in addition to seeing Fast and Furious 7 (which is phenomenal by the way) I also picked up this little neon holdall from Topshop that I literally carry around with me everywhere even if I have another bag. It's the perfect size for our phone, coin purse, lotion and headphones and maybe a crystal or two. I love it.
IMG_0050
I also picked up these matte cat eye sunglasses by Quay. I have never been much of a sunglasses person, but I've decided to actively try and use them all the time.
IMG_1274
A couple weeks ago I went to Spellbound Sky-- a crystal and healing shop in Silverlake-- with my cousin, in part for a research project but also just to be immersed in an incredible room full of crystals.
IMG_1273
My mom also gave me a couple from her collection and so now I find little ones around the apartment and in random bags. It's always good to have a crystal or two around if only just to look at something pretty, but I also believe in charging them with energy and setting intention.
IMG_1272
I promised at some point I would do an apartment tour but its getting so late I'm not sure of thats possible. But a couple weeks ago the sun became obscured by the clouds and I took a moment to just rest in my living room and it was so peaceful.
IMG_0044
Been wearing Mr. Kate's tuxedo handpiece a lot lately. Love the delicate gold chains paired with other gold rings from my jewelry collection.
IMG_0043IMG_0048
Twice in the past month I've ventured to the Writer's Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills to watch some of my favorite television and film screenwriters talk about their writing processes and the general craft at large. The top photo is from the first day (wearing an Urban Outfitters poncho) and the bottom photo is from the second gathering.
IMG_0054
I've probably mentioned in the past how low key my skin care routine is, but I've gotten sick of just rolling out of bed and doing nothing and actually want to take a second to take care of my skin now (also it's been pretty dry lately and have felt the effects of the weather). I stumbled upon Glossier and really fell in love with the brand and their whole deal so I ordered their Phase 1 set and their moon mask. I think I'll post a video because I kind of love the results but suffice to say I'm more than obsessed with these items.

Just a shot of a beautiful lavender tree on my block.

Most recent internship outfit with a Zara leather jacket and Topshop pants. Can't go wrong with black.
