all this footage is from the 1970 Swedish film “En kärlekshistoria”, or “A Swedish Love Story”
a really cute and endearing film about two teens falling in love. bike gangs, smokin cigarettes, schoolyard fights, pony tails and leather jackets, flirting in the arcade, intense drama for no reason…it really captures the whole awkward teen romance thing.

how am i not myself…?


i miss fireflies, i miss the rain…ill trade it all in for a plague of cicadas and floods in memphis (even though, not brought on by rains and perhaps that was tasteless…)
california’s not for me.
i mean, its 70 degrees and sunny all the time. i dont think im even allowed to self-identify as a blonde without “feeling home” in california…
but, i miss everybody, and i guess im just a southern girl at heart…
so! im transferring to memphis university!
……………………………………………………….
but first, my mom’s getting married!!
wedding party!!
my dear bestie turned model elle will be my date and we will be in attendance at Tio’s Tacos art garden!!
soon to be featured on Mtv cribs, HA…i didnt even know Mtv was still around…
anyhoo, wanna see what im wearing?

elie tahari dress. gold and sequins and snakeskin details
1996 flash-back with some coral steve madden sandals
mac lipstick in morange, new fave summer lip color, so ORANGE
agate slice and gold foil earrings from anthropologie pretty pretty
trying to do something simple and slick with my hair, gonna channel chloe sevigny pool-side with some push-back bangs.

i think all together it brings about an alexander mcqueen vibe.
DRESS UP!
………………………………………………………….

after the wedding, my dad is coming and driving with me cross country to nashville.
we’re gonna take a week or so hanging out in the desert, drinking date shakes, visiting canyons and parks and stuff.
ADVENTURE!
…………………………………………………………
it hasn’t all been misery out here.
since coming to california, i’ve collected 16 varieties of succulents and 3 cactus cuttings, including a cactus cutting stolen from joshua tree national park
i hope they acclimate well to tenn….
i never knew there were so many different shapes and colors of these. and some of them flower! and they just grow naturally around here, because california is certainly beautiful…


………………………………………………………
and i finished a semester here at Cal State Fullerton! six transferrable credits, yayyy!
i saw this inspiring interview with the etsy success story dreamboat yokoo

“i just feel like theres no room to be mediocre, and its not because i have some kind of disorder its simply because i enjoy immensely being great

“i love being hardcore”

i try to keep things like that in mind. im kind of a lazy person, sometimes i forget that i want to be great.
