i'm adventurous in the kitchen. i like mountains, art, feminism, and living in the south.

yesterday i did my nails with “faye" by zoya and i cannot get over how good it looks
it’s not quite as purple as i thought it would be and the gold is very pronounced. a lot of metallic polishes don’t look great with my skin tone, but with this polish, every time i look at my nails i think “SO PRETTY!”
“For many of us who grew up in the 1980s and ‘90s, the mixtape was the ultimate gift of self-expression to a loved one. It took thought, time and an intimate knowledge of the recipient. Within the confines of two short sides of a cassette, and from our own assemblage of albums and the frequencies on our FM dial, we distilled a one-of-a-kind soundtrack. It was both an art form and a means of communication, a bespoke object and a musical zine made just for one.”
i still wish that i had more time in chicago. i mostly stayed within walking distance of the hotel. spent five hours at the art institute. saw the magritte exhibit but didn’t spend as much time on it as i would have liked because it was so crowded. had cocktails on the trump terrace because i am in love with that view. tried to eat at au cheval my first night there but started feeling overwhelmed like i was going to have a panic attack and i left before ordering. still bummed about that and also that i didn’t make it to hot doug’s. like i said, just not enough time
thankfully, i did get to spend time with erin and meghan and it totally ruled. it had been eight years since the three of us were in the same place at the same time. i really hope that the three of us never go that long without hanging out again. i’m so damn lucky to know these ladies.
no shade @ anyone but i pray to god that i’m not on tumblr.com in my late 20s/early 30s but instead my career is peaking i’m making bank i got a nice house and i got somebody waiting at home for me god damn it
Remember, kids, when you hit 30, you have to give up all of your hobbies. That peaking career and nice house and romantic partner mean you will have zero time to get online and dick around looking at cat gifs.
my friend ren was in the guardian (and apparently a bunch of other news outlets) for being one of 40 artists to take part in a nude body painting gathering in new york
she’s organized a couple of body art shows at the gallery and i’ve seen a lot of her work over the years. it’s awesome to see her get recognition, because she is both very talented and thoroughly delightful
my visit to wisconsin wasn’t ideal, for a lot of reasons that i won’t go into here, but i tried to make the best of it and ended up having a pretty good time
best parts: lake michigan. all the beer. all the cheese curds. all the things that one would expect of me
also i got to hang out with matt and kel smith and they are super interesting and fun, just an absolutely lovely couple. they love their state so much that it gave me a much better perspective on the whole trip
even though i hadn’t been looking forward to wisconsin nearly as much as i was chicago, it still ended up being a nice time and i’m glad that i went
