April, 2016.

Carrying: Clare V. fringe clutch 

Reading: Sadly not as much as I would like. I work so much and am sort of mentally drained at night. So…mostly Vogue or NY Times’ articles. And snippets from the Bell Jar, because I always go to that.

Drinking: WW + T: Water, Wine, Tea.

Shopping: Not much, saving money. Too expensive scented candles, mostly. Such as ByRedo ones.

Missing: New York, West Village walks, fire-escape wine drinking and bitching with Avanti, my parents and summer.

Wanting: Hillary Clinton as next president. World peace, typical Beauty Queen answer. But actually, though, world peace…would be nice about now.

Listening to: Taylor Swift, James Bay, Halsey.

Watching: Finished latest season of GIRLS. Waiting for Grace&Frankie. Also watched this amazing documentary on female architects, Making Space – go watch it if you like architecture and feminism...which are two things most people would be better off appreciating. AND DESPERATELY want to watch First Monday in May. Anna Wintour is getting higher and higher on my “favorite women” list.

Wearing: That mix of hopeful spring-clothes covered by heavy knits and sheepskin jackets. Because Stockholm.

What does love feel like? I imagine, hope, that that life-changing, “this is it” kind of love feels the way I feel when I see the the New York City skyline approaching after having been away from it. Mixed with how chocolate tastes and those nights where everything is just, somehow miraculosuly, absolutely perfect and happy. If that’s the feeling of it, I will be willing to work for it. Forever.
