Things I Love Thursday
I have been having such a fantastic time in Austin. It is warm with big blue skies, & the food is fresh & incredible. We have magical tea parties, blow chocolate-scented bubbles, buy bottles of Perrier-Jouet & pretend to play miniature golf in six & a half inch heels.
It is the perfect antidote to New York City, even though I miss it & am looking forward to going back. Being here makes me want to wear Western shirts & cowboy boots, learn to ride motorbikes & drink juices every day.
Bunny coats & invitations from Helena Christensen & magical Mexican talismans. Buying magenta speckled orchids & connecting people together & wearing crystal skulls around my neck. Majorette hats & bird-shaped sugarcubes & sleeping in grey slips.
Eating lots of salads & getting lots of sleep & using hyaluric serum on my face every night. I have dark chocolate rabbits & new hats & lace-covered bunny ears. Wearing an old military shirt which says MAKE LOVE NOT WAR on the back. Long black vintage dresses & suede fringed miniskirts & peppermint bark chocolate.
Celery sticks & roasted garlic hommus & sitting at home writing on a beautiful clear night. Candlelit tarot card readings from magical friends at Barton Springs. Aloney time to create & Leonard Cohen & The Psychedelic Furs. Feeling everything come together & fresh starts. This charmed life.
Et enfin: Le Dish. El Disho. Das Dishenstein. I loves him. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, etc., though really for me it is more of a case of absence makes me realise how good we have it. I can’t wait to see him on Saturday! & it is his birthday on Tuesday! Happy early birthday, baby.
