mixtape 01 · summer sunset

First order of business : virtual mixtape. Really it's just playlist but lets not get caught up in logistics yeah? Plus, doesn't "mixtape" just sound one thousand times more romantic? Welcome [back] to the 90's, ladies and gents. This one's called Summer Sunset.

I'm already getting nostalgic for summer's end and like let's be honest, who doesn't love a good mix.  I'm one of those people that is constantly listening to music. 24/7.  It's just one of the small things that  I enjoy immensely (and sorry that I like to pretend my life has it's own soundtrack because, you know, it does. Doesn't it?). This will probably be an ongoing thing — it'd be cool if I could do 1-2 of these babies per month. Look at me already getting ahead of myself, as if it didn't take me like two days to make this thing because I'm overly obsessive. I really wanted to make sure it had that perfect flow.  I don't even know if that makes sense but ahhh, I so hope someone really really enjoys this. Also you should take note that I have not yet let go of my infatuation with peach(es). I think this might be a life-long love. Not even gonna hide it. 

I made the mix on both Spotify, Rdio, and 8tracks (don't hate on my 4 year old username) just to make sure most people could have a listen. That said, Spotify didn't have the Lisztomania remix I wanted so I just popped in the original. Massive cockblock, thanks Spot! This is essentially just a complilation of all of the music I've been enamored/infatuated with this summer. All of those omg-i-can't-get-enough songs. You know what I mean.

Anyway, feel free to follow + subscribe. Oh and let me know what you think! 




New logo. New nonsense. *gasp*

I haven't been around for a while. Almost a month, which seems so crazy, really. Like anything else in this world though there are totally some legit excuses reasons as to why. 

First and most important is: this stopped feeling like my space. I started this blog to write about what I like, what I enjoy, what I do. I started this blog to make relationships. Somewhere down the road it turned into a full on beauty blog which is great, but there really is so much more to my life than makeup. I started buying all of the things I wanted when I wanted them. There was less of wait, less of a chase, and it made them a lot less fun. I want to genuinely freak out over how much I love a brand new mascara again. Where the hell has the thrill gone?

Secondly, I got bored. I looked at my blog and it was like : product, product, product. There are bloggers and vloggers who are really good at this stuff. They write consistently about products and make it interesting and I drool and it just, it makes sense. I, personally, cannot keep doing the same thing all the time. I bore myself and get stuck in ruts and get frustrated. I need to flail around and let this blog just be whatever the hell it wants. Fashion. Beauty. Food. Lifestyle. Whatever whatever. Why set limits? What good comes from limits? (the answer is nothing, in case you were wondering)

I love taking photos. I love overdressing in San Francisco because people think (and look at me like) I am insane. I have a soft spot for succulents and I'm moving in 4 days. I can't wait to start doing yoga religiously again. I can't wait to not have a 100ºf fever because the delirium, while slightly hilarious, is actually doing my head in. Sometimes I listen to the Sims Buy Mode 1 song just for funsies. I am consistently compared to April Ludgate by people I know and some that I don't. I don't even know what this all says about me but what I do know that this blog doesn't encompass even half of this. And I want it to. So now, it's going to. 

I will still be beauty blogging, just less than I was before, and it'll be mixed in with a ton of other things.  I haven't stopped feeling thankful for everyone who has ever even read my blog in passing. Always grateful. Always. So without further ado — this blog has now been liberated and is free to be whatever the hell it wants.
