things I'm loving

1. Prism spectacles.


2. Camille Belle's makeup.


3. Damages.

4. Daily Routines: How writers, artists, and other interesting people organize their days.

5. Planning my 21st birthday party.

6. Sarah Wilson's blog.

7. Florence and the Machine.

8. Le Labo Labdanum fragrance.

This women's fragrance is an enigma… it simply doesn’t conform to any of the laws of perfumery. A strong concentration of oriental notes, with animal intonations of civet and castoreum, it remains a perfume that’s discreet on your skin even though everything’s combined to make it a power bomb. Listen to it whisper to your nose and to the senses of those allowed to get close to your skin… Once you start, you won’t be able to stop listening. Blended by hand, each Le Labo fragrance is truly unique.


9. Ralph Waldo Emmerson quotes.

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.

Fiction reveals truth that reality obscures.

Nothing external to you has any power over you.

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of leave the world a better know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

We must be our own before we can be another's.

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.

What you are comes to you.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.
