Things I Love Thursday

Things that made me smile this week…

Being spotted in Time Out New York & being asked to audition for a major studio film (!!! yes of course I am going to do it!); printing some of my favourite photos & hanging them up all over International Playgirl HQ; listening to the old stuff I used to love & really questioning my 14 year old taste (Type O Negative, Coal Chamber, Sevendust?!); Common People by Pulp; Candle 79 & Inder from Matt & Nat (he has, seriously, the BEST eyebrows I have ever seen — he is also amazing company, & a Virgo!!!); hearing that something I never thought would happen actually happened; “Don’t tell me Carver can cut school just because she broke her leg in 3 places. HELLO, get a wheelchair”; Australia’s Next Top Model, season 3 (oh Paloma); getting so much great feedback on Love & Sequins #1 (thank you so much); coconut chai from Bonobos; pink blossoms everywhere; Mrs Doubtfire (“Good waste of juice”); buying lingerie from sex shops (these are so cute on); sending postcards; people who tell me they like my hair in the street; unusual dates with intriguing characters; sweet emails; mind-blowing phonecalls…

+ DJ Low Bee’s Smooth Holiday; avocado for breakfast; new shoes; butterfly-shaped sunglasses; channelling my inner Marie Antoinette (by which I mostly mean big hair with things in it, but overspending could be in there too); seeing all the green blooming outside my window; my feature in Next magazine (NZ) hitting the stands; $10 manicures; meetings which fill you with glee; good mail; being introduced to someone at a party with “She gives good Tweet”; penthouses with rooftop access; TopShop’s shoe department; condoms with my face on them; my date reviews being published in Time Out New York; old horror movies + rainy nights; Roxanne M. Carter (she has been inspiring since me since the late 90s); oh, & I get to see a cute boy tonight!

“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger than reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, & when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.” — Anaïs Nin

Okay, your turn. SHOW US YER TILTS! (Hahah!) & make it super-syrupy good with a cherry on top because we missed it last week! (Oops…)

P.S. Mercury just went retrograde but we’ll survive! I was watching my horoscope this morning & Christopher said he views Mercury retrograde as encouragement to think differently & come up with new ways of communicating. Yes! V. empowering! We’ll get there!
