What I’m Listening to: Lykee Li

I’ve been listening to Lykee Li for a while, but never like this. The Swedish songstress has really hit a cord in me and I’m not sure why.

I live for (high brow) fashion

My apologizes. I know, I know, I haven’t blogged in forever. However, let it be known that I am currently in the midst of a(nother) creative rut. Actually, it might be a crisis.

To make up for my lack of loyalty to this blog and you,fellow reader, I give you this picture.

What is this atrocity art?
It’s my face with my new eye brows. I’ve come to the realization that my eyebrows suck (could this be the root of my life crisis?!). My eyebrows –their lack of fullness and character– are embarrassing. So I have decided to edit every picture of myself with my new, glamorous, bushy brows.

Here’s the first of many to come.

If you want brows like mine, you will need the following:

A. Low selfie-esteem (Thank you Ezra Koenig’s twitter (and Queen Donut)).

B. Little to no hand-eye coordination.

C. Paint. Use the airbrush tool for added texture/upper brow sweat effect. (Is there a Paint app?)

Let me know what you think.

After hearing their single “Open,” I fell in love with LA based music duo Rhye’s soulful sound. They’re funky, seductive and soft-spoken.

Living like a Floridian

Florida is not my favorite state. It’s probably not even on my top twenty-five. However, there’s something about a place forever stuck in a sun-soaked daze that brings the best– and worst– out of me.

It’s a difficult task for me, enjoying the beach. It’s hot, painfully sandy and as Kate Nash so pleasantly sang it, I hate seagulls. So it came as a surprise when I found a dusting of peace and enjoyment in the marble-swirled sand dunes of Clearwater.

Was it the wispy smell of coconut infused sunscreen? The unapologetic razor cut bikinis and speedos? Or was it the endless horizon that enchanted me last night? Who knows. Maybe I’m just starting to like the beach.

A Postcard Sunset

“The sunset itself on such waves of ether/ that I just can’t comprehend/whether it is the end of the day, the end of the world/Or the mystery of mysteries in me again.”  - Anna Akhmatova

Sometimes you just need a sunset.  For now, I’ll accept this photograph I took a few weeks back.
