“summer has set in with its usual severity.” // s.t. coleridge
but for now, let’s concentrate on the one thing you’d think someone with skin like mine would never do. and that’s to add even more oil to it. i know, i’m about three years late to this game, but these facial oils just didn’t scan. i could understand them for parched skin, older skin, but not for my glossy (ahem), coating. but here we are, and i’ve been turned around. i’m utterly confused, but this face hasn’t come in contact with a blotting paper in a week, and that’s been practically unheard of since the spring of 1989*.

“to go out with the setting sun on an empty beach is to truly embrace your solitude.” // j. moreau
it’s a bit odd, and perhaps not a little bit ironic that the majority of my current favourites happen to evoke the beach, when there are few things i like less.
you can go ahead and feign shock and awe about that last statement, but don’t misunderstand: the beach is amazing and gorgeous – (a sight to behold! smells great!) i just don’t like lounging around on them, or wading waist deep into open bodies of water. (issues, let us not get ourselves too deeply into them).
bottle up those things that go along with the beach-life however, like an icy pina colada, salt water and a swift ocean breeze, and i’m sold. it’s the sand that makes your skin feel great, the sea that washes away city grime, and the salt that makes your hair look amazing. i suppose i’m just the type that would rather buy the beach, than visit it.

“luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” // c. chanel
it’s at this time of year that i become very aware of my… person.
the warmer it gets, the more solid my hair feels against my neck, the heavier my bracelets weigh on my wrists; and the stickier the leather of my grandiose shoulder bag gets. the straps dig in to shoulders due to thin tees, sides clammy and sticking to the dark black carryall.
i’ve had enough. and it’s early yet. so, i’m looking for something a little less cumbersome, a little less leathery, a bit more colorful… maybe. the options, they are endless – but the summer is long and i will triumph in my need for comfort.
