Yarn

The store had this Issac Mizrahi yarn and I was obsessed. No idea what I was going to do with it, but I couldn’t leave the store without it.

Look at this purple! And the gold… I wish I could knit or crochet, but because I can’t, I found something else to do with this gorgeous yarn.

I ended up with a wall hanging. It’s basic, but I can look at the yarn all I want and it even looks like I tried.

Barbecue

Shockingly, today went well. Barbecue at a friend’s and despite rain in the forecast, the weather was gorgeous. We chilled on her patio next to a big garden and the amount of food was both crazy and very satisfying.

Chicken, steak, potato salad, avocado salsa, corn, sweet tea, cookies, brownies, and cake. It was great to hang out in the sunshine and eat food I didn’t have to cook.

Lunchtime

I went to a walk during my lunch in a massive park across the street from my office.

It’s weird to realize something you’ve driven past for years isn’t quite what you’d expected. I’ve known the park was there, having lived in the area almost ten years. But it was nothing like I’d imagined.

The other trailed along the Mystic River, a picnic area, and a birdwatching tower. I climbed it clearly, and had an amazing view.

Fenty

Yaz! New Fenty foundation brush. Luv.

I lucked out and joined a Fenty class at Sephora last week. Tried all of the things! Really fell in love with this brush. Well, and a half dozen other things, but like makes you picks and choose.

Is there anything softer and more special than a new brush? I almost couldn’t bear to use it. But I did.

Cookies

I’m not saying these are the best cookies ever, because they’re not. But damn are they pretty!

Pink is the best fricking color.

It was a nice afternoon. I marathoned the Alien movies while baking. Maybe I will get into this whole baking idea.

Pride

Happy Pride!

I had a nice day. Stopped off at Sephora and got an amazing eye shadow makeover. All rainbows and glitter.

Copley was insane. Everywhere I looked, it was LGBT positive shirts, rainbow flags, and smiles. I watched some of the parade and it was constant cheering.

Copley

The weather is finally nice and I’m sick of going from work right back home. I wandered around Copley for awhile.

It had a huge impact of my mood. I felt lighter and happier. It’s great to spend time outside, just seeing the city.

Kate Spade

I bought this purse last summer and it’s brought me nothing but joy.

The glee I felt for months just glancing at it…. I kept it within sight when I sat at my desk in the office because I could hardly tear my eyes away.

Lipstick

This is some great lipstick and I always forget I have it. Fantastic color on me and the case makes me feel like a badass.

I spent ages last year picking out the perfect shade for a wedding and this is about as close as I’ll ever get.
