once and for all

I am known for hating gardening and yard work, but today I showed everyone that I really can do it! And after, I took some pictures of le jardin and the tool shed things.

Anyone notice bigger images! I just started using photobucket. Should I be embarrassed?



I LOVE the Oprah franchise. Specifically, I love O Magazine. When "The Power Issue" came out a few months ago, I was so inspired. I made it my mission to live with mindfulness, not holding back any of my awesome.
The December issue is called "The Awe Issue", and let me tell ya, O hit it outta the park againnn! When I went to the Phoenix concert (we had great spots), I felt SO charged up. Everything felt new and different. My friends, I think I was AWED. So the December Issue. It tells us that when we look outside ourselves, we are refreshed like nothing else. There was this experiment they did that showed people were more optimistic when they were seated in front of a marvelous t-rex skeleton than a white wall.It reminded me of all the times I felt awed: studying astronomy, walking the stairs of a subway station when it's busy, concerts that I love, MoMA. I love looking at pictures of beautiful clothes because they're AWESOME to me. They're unreal and beautiful, but people wear them just like I wear my favorite belt. It's crazy!
Here are some awe-inducing pictures I found.
wordy post. different. but cool, right?


In the Jungle

Two totally different pictures of myself taken immediately after I bought Nars lipstick in Jungle Red.

It's funny how every time I say I'm inspired I don't post for like a month. I think I get this thing where I'm on the cusp of something, but I stay at the same level because I have the same skills. I think I'll try to take some photography classes to learn some new things.

Have a great week!
