Life Envy

You know when you have those days where you would really just be somewhere else? Well this whole week has felt that way. I think it's mainly due to the fact that I'll be starting school soon and my family visiting from Argentina left on Monday. We visited San Francisco (photos up soon!) and just spending time together was wonderful. Now I'm about to embark on my thesis prep so I can only imagine what that will be like.

Therefore, I got to imagining what life would be like in a faraway land, which lead me to Positano, Italy. The photo says it all- can you imagine waking up and looking out your window to find this?

"Dolce far niente"- thanks E. Gilbert!

It's in her kiss...

I never knew lips could hold such artistic abilities! Artist Natalie Irish has created portraits of Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Monroe just using her painted lips. She also created images including that of The Beatles using her thumbs!

I'm not the most artistically gifted person (as in, not at all) so I love to hear about such unique artists.

Here are a few of my favorites, click on the link for more.

Summer Style

The LA heat cooled today (finally!) and I wore one of my comfy summer dresses for casual Friday (we don't technically have a casual Friday at work but I'd like to think so). Tomorrow we're planning to take family visiting from Argentina to Rodeo Drive and though I can't afford anything, it flipped the switch so I started browsing online and found these gems. I didn't realize till now the floral inspirations ;)

Summer Reading

I'm half way through La Casa en Mango Street and then I must conquer the rest of this mountain. Sometimes I'm tempted to do like Harry in When Harry met Sally and skip to the end but then I always feel bad. I so wish I could freeze time and finish each one before the semester begins. What are some of your favorite summer reads?
