i have kept a diary since i was in sixth grade and what was once about gossip-y junior high stories, has now evolved into an amalgamation of thoughts, lists and lovely pictures. my diaries help me connect with myself and help me map out where i want to go.

i just retired my latest diary. i didn't fill it entirely. not even close. but i knew that i couldn't write in it any longer. i felt no attachment to it. except that it holds the first six month of our relationship. i know that i could have written more throughout the time i had it, but i was not inspired. i suppose it started with the way it looked. its cardboard-esque cover and lined pages were not for me. i can't imagine why i bought it in the first place. and i didn't even give it a title. i don't always give my diaries a title, but i have for the last few. bonjour mademoiselle, favorita.

that said, i am so pleased with my new diary and i can't stop writing. minnie.

back from vermont

ben and i went to visit annie in vermont for the week. we got back to manhattan at midnight.
vermont was beautiful, as it always is, and we spent every day in the water. it was incredible to have a burlington summer, if only for a week.

summer beauty

remember how i said it'd be interesting to see how my makeup bag changes every season? well, i've pretty much done away with a beauty routine completely. it's hot. i don't want anything on my face. or spend any time worrying about what it looks like. especially in this hot city heat. it's probably dripping down my face anyhow.

so for now:

moisturizer SK-II skin signature moisturizing cream, every morning and night.
brows benefit brows a-go-go, i am terrified of skinny eyebrows.
lips MAC lipstick in snob; la mer lip balm
the piece de resistance eyelash extensions, they last a month or so.

i believe, as long as my skin looks good (the moisturizer is crucial) and my lashes are long, there really isn't a need for anything else. easy. simple. summer.

oh and before i leave the house:
