Summer Gratitude List: 2017
Eclipse season is upon us, my friends. I don’t know about you, but this summer has thrown me — and my loved ones — its fair share of challenges. There has been frustration, and tears, and a funeral. But even in the midst of those moments, there is sweetness to be had. Hugging your friends so tight when you cry. Texting video and voice messages to the people who light up your heart. Dreaming about a brighter future. And making a promise to honor those who left too soon.
So I wanted to make a little summer gratitude list to remind myself of the many magical moments I’ve experienced so far. I hope it inspires you to tilt your head and look at your life with new eyes, too.
The photobooth at the Ace Hotel (with its polka-dot curtain) and my favourite Virgo girl who’s always up for it Pressed sandwiches from Dr Smood My man skateboarding to work and Cleo running along beside him! Lying on the roof at Ludlow House with Colin, drinking lemonade and laughing like old ladies Press-on nails (they make quite a scene; a woman at the gym interrupted me mid-kickback to ask about them) A sheet of hot pink Lakshmi stickers ABCV, my new favourite restaurant Dreaming about going to Bali Two dozen pink roses because I’m spoiled and I love it Falling asleep in fresh clean sheets FaceTiming with my dad and laughing Being in a portal with Alexandra Manifesting out of thin air Hot days that feel like a sauna and warm you from the inside out Doing yoga to hip-hop in a dark, candlelit room Magically somehow having the perfect dress to match G’s navy blue and red suit Crazy morning thunderstorms Strip clubs that play Nine Inch Nails and Rage Against The Machine Bedrooms that smell like eucalyptus Morning voice messages Infrared saunas with rainbow lights Three of my favourite people visiting NYC in one week! Magical potions Getting things done Multiple tarot/palm/oracle card readings that have all told me the exact same thing Feeling inspired to undertake new projects Getting prepped for my New Moon ritual tomorrow night!
And, special mention? Garnett and I just celebrated our two year anniversary. I wore a hot pink crushed velvet dress with a diamante choker and extra-high platform Mary Janes (very Bad Barbie), and he took me to see Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, and Dave Chappelle at Radio City Music Hall. It was fucking phenomenal, a historic night of comedy. We laughed so hard… And I love him more than ever.
By the way, Alexandra and I are doing a Love Lab event on Facebook tomorrow morning at 11am Eastern. It’s free free free, and we’ll be taking your love, sex, and relationship questions and giving you actionable advice you can use! I can’t wait. Join us!
