a few things --
Processed with VSCOcam with x1 preset
1 // I admit it. I am obsessed with Madmen. I've been watching it non-stop since I came down with a bad cold last week and have slowly but surely been making my way through all the seasons on Netflix. I can get enough of the styling, the dresses, the makeup, the hair, the nails, everything! I am addicted and don't see myself recovering soon...

2 // I've been trying out 'oil pulling', a new [or very old] thing that maybe some of you have heard about. it's basically a method of detoxifying your mouth and body through swishing coconut oil [or other kinds] in your mouth for 20 minutes a day. it sounds crazy, but it's been said to cure/clear up skin conditions, oral health problems, and improve your overall health. I blame Pinterest, but so far I've been enjoying it, yet not fully seen any 'miraculous' results. we will see!

3 // maybe it's a given, but I've just been smitten with the sun. anytime it's out, my mood improves drastically. a year ago I was living in California and never really experienced this same mood boost, because every day the weather is the same: too hot. lately, I will take myself to the park and picnic for a few hours in the sun or shade of a tree and read, fully enjoying the company of my own solitude. finding happiness within myself is a new thing for me and, with the help of some sunny days, it's becoming a more frequent and enjoyable treat.

4 // call me crazy, [ahem, mom & dad] but I am really trying to get a scooter. like a little Vespa/moped to get to and from work. my commute is short and I would save so much on gas. apparently my dad has 'vetoed' this idea, but let's try to convince him otherwise, okay?! ;)
