Waste Not Want Not

Who would have thought decay could be art?
Well, I suppose Klaus Pichler did.

His project, One Third, is a depiction of
America's wastefulness and world starvation.

It's disgusting, yet wonderfully fascinating.

Incredible, right?

Lack Of {P}Interest

I'm no all that crazy about Pinterest.
I've tried it
{not a ton, but enough to have made a decision}
and I'm just not crazy about it.

I do, however, keep tabs on pieces I'd like to recreate.
{My bookmarks are predominately crafts.}

Right now, I'm looking for inexpensive ways
to make my office feel like home.

Here are a few projects that could
bring some color to my new space.

I've already purchased the supplies for these two!
One-of-a-kind tumblers for office guests

{I'm thinking: larger versions as wall art?}

I've been looking around for a needlepoint kit
since I read about NattheFatRat's favorites,
I think it could make a silly, but endearing framed display.
I'd really like this one, but it's sold out!

For now, it's a little too sunny to stay inside and sew...
but I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Black and White {Stripes} and Red All-Over {My Lips}

So, I did it:
Red lipstick...all day.
{totally feel like an idiot taking a picture of myself,
but needed photographic proof of my guts}

I was completely aware of my red lips for every second...
mostly nervous that it was smudged on my teeth or across my face
also a little nervous that it was not office-appropriate

I had several compliments throughout the day...
all from women
though one man did say, "Your lips are really red."

I'm not sold on the everyday wear of red,
but I did go to Target this morning to pick up
a fuchsia lipstick.

We'll see what happens, I guess.

Madwell Denim Roadtrip

As if I didn't already wish I lived in New York City...
{if I had hundreds of dollars, I would spend most of it here}
is taking an Airstream Road Trip across 14 cities
{beginning in NYC}

Granted, I'm not crazy about denim
{I had a very unfortunate jeans mishap at work yesterday}
but I'm pretty into the idea of a Braid Bar.
{says the girl who had to re-braid her hair at four different stoplights on the way to work today.}

I wish I were in New York today,
for several reasons, really...
but mostly so I could check out
the madness that will be
this Madewell RV
this afternoon.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

I really. want to be a girl who can pull off a lipstick
every now and again.

I'm trying it.

Today: bright red.

Tomorrow: a bright pink.

Next week: the world!

Love. Love. Love.

So much has happened in the month since I posted last.
Lots to catch up on...more coming soon.

For now, here's a list of things I love:

I want to stay there!

How does this work for the superstitious?

Oh, Martha.

Anything I've missed?
