Insecurity

I’m not an insecure person almost at all. And when people confide in me that they’re insecure or I experience their insecurities it always surprises me. Along with jealousy it’s a common emotional problem I have an oddly small amount of personal experience with. I’m sure you’ll doubt that it if it makes you feel…

Tornado Watch

Today I “had lunch” via the wonders of the internet with two friends who were eating together at the Four Seasons. I was sitting in my house on what’s likely the hottest day we’ve had this year. Until 10pm tonight we’re under a tornado watch. “So, you got bullied off Instagram by a bunch of…

Chanel For July

One more post for today. I love Chanel. And since there isn’t a Chanel Boutique here I have way too many of their boxes. It’s so hard to throw them away. They’re meant to be used again, it feels. Recently I ordered mascara and a lip/cheek color. I love them. And, of course, being Chanel…

Roses

Lately, after discovering Grown Alchemist, I have developed a desire to smell roses. GA uses a lot of roses in its products and you find yourself wanting more. I love everything I purchased from them, by the way. The brightening serum is superb! It has already made a difference in the few days I’ve used…

Those Ones

(Photo in our backyard) A friend sighed deeply before saying with conviction, “Look!” as she pointed at a white, elegant, Co turtleneck sweater. I looked at it for a second before saying, “That reminds me of something Jackie O. would have worn.” in an admiring tone. “Exactly!” she replied. Her point was that when you…

Going Backwards

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne ceaselessly into the past.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby I am not a mean person. That individual who I posted last night was correct. Anyone who has met me in person and actually knows me is highly unlikely to say I’m mean. As for the…

Haters Gonna Hate

I just received a very unusually brave and honestly moving message on Twitter. Apparently someone found me there and decided to write me a message from their anonymous account. They asked me to share this message and I think it’s a fair thing to do (even though I’m blocking their account for boundary reasons that…

Peter and the Wolf

I have an ever evolving list of things I want to buy in the next couple of years. Here it currently is: Now…the question for me is: Do they all “go together”? *puzzled face* Also…I had to wear this today:

Maisie

Did you ever watch the Merchant Ivory films of the 1980’s and 90’s? You know, the ones with Helena Bonham Carter? Well, around the time I saw “Room With A View” for the first time I also recall spending the day with my parents and one of their friends. We all drove together to a…
