Guys & Dolls & Art School

Husband and I built a set. I actually sat down with graph paper and pencils and ruler and DESIGNED it. It was definitely a learning experience, especially since we built it in an unheated shed during some really effing cold weather! It all came together though, and the kids starring in it were awesomely talented. In other big news, I've been accepted into the Performance Production program at Cornish College of the Arts. It's kind of a big deal for me as I have dreamed of going there since high school. I even auditioned for the theatre program way back when (and I am SO glad they passed me over for that!) since I clearly A: Wasn't ready, and B: Had no idea that I wanted to design sets and source props and be responsible for the feel and ambiance of a show. It's bittersweet though, since I really cannot quit my job. I knew it wasn't the right time but I was compelled to apply and I'm so glad I did. But! As time floats on, I will overcome financial blockages and just do it.

Meanwhile, there's this:

Selfie Day 4 and I Had a Massage and It Was Awesome


I had a massage the other day and it was awesome. I smelled like cloves when I got home and Emmy said I smelled like Christmas which was funny. I felt amazing!

It's bloody hot here in Washington today, but I don't mind because TGIF!

I LOVE my button ring. You can get one equally as awesome HERE (well maybe not equally, although if you search the site for Blue Bubbles you may fall in love!) or look up the stockists in your neck of the woods. We used to sell them at the bookstore and Sylla gifted me this one for a birthday or Christmas a while ago.

As you can also see, my manicure is finished! 5 coats of Really Red and 3 coats of topcoat over 2 days. I just really wanted them to look nice and last a good week at least! My work is such that a couple coats of polish won't even last a day. AND painting them keeps me from biting them.

My hair is longer than it has been since I was in my twenties.

 Booyah!

Selfie Day 2

 (It's funny that you can see my hands holding the phone in the reflection, huh?)
Instagram me!

So I'm feeling impossibly bloated and gross today, but I LOVE my apple sweater and do you ever notice that even if you feel uncomfortable in your skin, when you wear something you love, or ace your makeup, or you're having an amazing hair day, that people notice because it shows? I've had three compliments today which kind of blew me away.

I know, apple SWEATER. It's the middle of July. I live in Washington.

I'm wondering if the selfie has to have your face in it? I guess that's kind of the whole point, eh? I did full face yesterday so today is just a wee corner with my Warby Parkers on. I felt the need to buy the perfect red nail polish today. Really Red from Essie is well, really red. I'm now sporting this color but I won't post a pic because I've made a pig's ear out of it. You know how hard it is to paint your right hand with your left, right? I did paint my cuticles with clear topcoat, so tomorrow you'd never know I applied nail polish much as a toddler might.

Until tomorrow, then!
