Good morning, Thursday. Welp my career as a blogger is totes tanking. Ha. I've been so bad about posting here but that's cause I'm writing every day for work and somehow, this blog suffers. I apologize. I hope to get better at regular posting but since I've been in hardcore hibernation mode, not much to report. It's too cold to be inspired. We got the memo, Winter. We got it.
So let's see, what's new? Oh. I'm going to New Orleans next week for some hang time with David's dad and his wife and I'm really excited. Some of you know my uncle lived there his entire adult life and for some reason, that city has a real appeal. I feel like New Orleans is a bit like Good and Plenty- a very sweet place but super polarizing. I think I like polarizing places, actually. Jamaica. Glasgow. Detroit. A million other places most likely. It's hard for me to imagine why people hate New Orleans- I think they consider Bourbon Street the "thing" to do there and there is simply so much more. The city is bursting with vibrancy, weirdos, amazing food, and best of all- music. Everywhere. Of every sort. I can't wait and plan to see something live every night. If anyone's been there lately and has some recommends, I'm wide open.
We'll be staying at the new Ace and can't WAIT to check it out.
What else? I'm still happy I'm writing every day for work, but occasionally I miss a big, juicy shoot. I console myself with the fact that they are few and far between but the perfect mix for me would be a combo of big production and the written word. And lately I've been missing my old comrades in the ad world- need to reconnect with the amazing people I worked with and have a drink or two. I'm missing the camaraderie of that world but have my feet deeply planted in this one. Although I've always been a bit of the grass is greener type of chick. I'm working on that. Well, kind of. It's deeply ingrained. Meditating helps. Must. Be. Present.
I also wanted to put it out there again (a bit of a broken record I know) that I'm available for all your personal styling needs so let's go shopping. I've been in cool down mode when it comes to my own personal consumption, but would love to get my shop on for you. Just let me know.
So what have we learned? I'm headed South next week. I miss you. You know who you are. Let's have a drink. After I dress you up in my love. That's about all. Just wanted to catch you up. Oh, and buy this Tatcha tinted lip oil in Geisha. It's a gorgeous bit of tint and really works wonder on Winter lips. You're welcome.
Cause that's what's up this playing catch up kind of Thursday in the 212. Yours, in taking care of business. And pleasure. XO
