Little Inspirations I create for Myself

Tuesday November 03, 2015   

Sometimes I put together some writings and photos into a Google Doc for myself; much like a mood board. I’ve been doing it since summer. Usually when I’m either struck with inspiration or completely lacking it. Rarely while in between.

I saw this one I put together in early October. I had forgotten about it but looking back now I LOVE IT. I need it. I need some extra joy in my life to outweigh the current stress (I’ve been sick and overworked.) So here is that “mood” from October 5th.

I had a vision last night (for all intents and purposes) of my autumn “look.” Straight line smokey eyeshadow. Bright lips. Straight chin length hair. I also purchased some clear frames off ebay today similar to Mackenzie Davis’ in Martian to pair with my CK one lipstick and sweatshirt. Black skinnies, and thick glasses a lot. I want some more rounded but it’s hard to find. Maybe I should order a those ones off UO. They had these black petite round ones. But my own thick glasses would be good and give my eyes a break from everyday contacts for a while.

    Loved those frames too! I’ve been looking for something similar in bonlook, warby parker and even J!NS (via rakuten). My current frames are from the first TsubasaxJ!NS collection (~2011/12?) I truly fell in love with the weight and material for the price, sadly my dog decided to chew them haha.

    Love the clear glasses. Also have my eye on the ladies ‘Maynard’ frames at Warby Parker. Presently growing my hair to a long bob and trying to resist cutting bangs again :)

  3. I love Ena and her fashion style but she seems to be getting skinnier and skinnier ever since she gave birth. I kind of miss the her prior to giving birth where she looked much more healthy.

    I saw The Martian yesterday and loved those glasses too! I loved how they reflected.

    Love the inspiration! A great place to find glasses is coastal[dot]com, specifically the Love brand. I think you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for there as I have translucent, round frames from the site although mine have a yellow tint. :)
