Currently | August Edition

Dreaming up costumes for this year's Highball Halloween with my design partner, Shiree. Since our "Broken Dolls" collection won 1st place last year, we've got a lot to live up to for this year's show!

Watching (shamefully) America's Next Top Model season 4,782. Don't ask me why because there is absolutely no acceptable excuse. I just can't risk missing out on any of Tyra's crazy and I clearly have garbage taste in television.

Reading everything! Currently I'm on Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, but I'll have a full book report of my August reading list soon, so stay tuned!

Feeling relaxed amidst chaos thanks to these 10-minute slices of heaven from the Meditation Minis podcast. I did accidentally fall asleep for three whole hours while listening to one the other day, but I've always been an overachiever like that. ;)

Eating salad all the time. Isn't that just what always sounds good in the summer? Well, that and ice cream, which I've also been eating on the reg. #noregrets

Working on product designs and upcoming projects that I can't wait to share!

Thinking about the importance (at least for me) of waking up early and scheduling creative time. This is one of the hardest things for me to control, so I'm always trying to figure out ways to make a "normal" schedule work for me. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm working on a future blog post about the relationship between structure and creativity and I'd love, love, love to hear your thoughts, opinions, or just general gripes on the issue.

Wearing kimonos all day, errryday. When I reorganized my closet recently, these were the categories I ended up with: tanks, blouses, kimonos, and structured jackets. All were equally represented as far as amount of items go. I don't think that's "normal" but this girl knows what she likes. And it's got lots of drape.

Planning out all the furniture paint projects I'm going to take on as soon as I can stand to be outside for more than 3 minutes. (i.e. the fall)

Listening to music from the 70s. I think a lot about 70s-era fashion lately, with it being such a major trend, so I guess it just seems to fit the mood. Plus, let's be honest, I love a man in makeup and heels. I'm kind of obsessively listening to "Telegram Sam" right now.

Sidebar: You probably want to get out a fresh slice of notebook paper and title it "Future Dance Move Ideas" because this audience is killing it. ;)
