let's talk july specifics:

my favorite july snack, root beer floats (non-dairy of course).

my new favorite summertime staples, my travel size evian spray (who knew a spritz of water could make so much difference?), and my new pink nars lipstick which i love love love.

favorite blush for the summer, especially with that gold shimmer side, irresistible!

favorite july summer reads. getting in the know for autumn/winter, getting my daily dosage of menswear, and scoping out my industry. my only july complaint was that it was simply way too hot! my little ac can't even begin to compete.

Here are some photos from a couple weekends ago when I headed down to the James River in Williamsburg, VA to chill with some friends. The journey down started with homemade donuts and whoopie pies from the farmer's market, so I knew it was going to be a fine time. And the soundtrack to the weekend was CCR and nothing but.
Did some fishing (with lots of help from my friend's dad who did all the bait work and casting...I just stood around holding the fishing rod and looking sleepy).
My homeys Riggs and Har fishing for minnows.
Life on the James River.

mid-summer lull

i am well aware that we are in the midst of a ridiculously hot, humid summer, but i'm already getting anxious about upcoming fall purchases. i'll keep the list to a mere 2 considering i still have a ways to go till the acutal season, but these 2 things i consider necessary for a successful future in fall. maybe it's not actually just 2 things, but let's categorize.

1. everything from the Alexa Chung x Madewell collabo. i know that this may well take up a rather large chunk of my budget, but i'll go ahead and allow it. i even want that probably overpriced white tee with a bat on it. and while we're on the subject, i'd like whatever makeup the models are wearing too, thx.

2. mac's villainous villains collection. i feel like i'm already having panic attacks at the thought of this selling out. and i've already nerded out about my excitement for this launch with the mac counter lady (i know i know, get a grip). but i am literally setting aside a large sum of money for this, because i will be there day 1 of launch, and i will be buying this collection up like a crazy woman. since my birthday is in september and this is a september launch, i'll just count it as a personal birthday present and stop making excuses for myself. plus this shit is way cute, and if you deny it then you're either lying or prefer the princesses, which is lame. go back to disneyworld creampuff!

pictures from here. also where you can find the product list, so you'll have your shopping cart ready day of launch, but i'll still be in front of you at the counter, BOOYAH.

summer lovin

i went to the beach a few weeks ago and am just now getting around to posting up the fun in the sun. everything about the beach makes me completely nostalgic, including the drive there and the way the air smelled, it was fantastic. not to mention hanging out with the best babes this side of the atlantic.

a little tadpole in the distance.

Dear Heart,

Kinda in love with this group.

It's been a busy little week and I'm in a new apartment now! It's essentially the top floor of a converted house and is full of cobwebs and strange creaking noises coming from the wooden floors, but I'm in love with it regardless. My goal is to really make it feel like a home...so no more living like a vagabond, which to me really just means finally getting a damn couch. I'll post photos once it's in a state I'm remotely happy with.

Also, I've been filling the time I have between getting ready for bed and actually visiting slumberland with some reading. I've been indulging in probably way too many graphic novels, stories about liberated witches, and tales of time travel.
