I've been reading a lot about this "teatox" thing people are doing this summer and I figured I'd give it try to see what all the hype is about. I selected the Tiny Tea, which is a 28 day detox program that's supposed to help with metabolism along with an exciting assortment of other things like keeping your skin clear, making you less bitchy during that time of the month and giving you nice energy boost.
While most people I've seen using this are only in it for the weight loss benefits, I'm more interested in the skin clearing, anti-PMS magic that it's supposed to have.
I'm supposed to drink the tea twice a day, 30 minutes before or after I eat. The tea itself is a blend of oolong, jueming zi, he ye,shan zha, lai fu zi, chen pi, and mai ya, so it should taste pretty good.
I'll check in after my 28 days to give my full (and experienced) opinion of the tea and the results. In the meantime, you can always check out their website www.yourtea.com to look through their other tea selections.

I'm currently working on some more handmade soap. I got some lovely new essential oils that I can't wait to try.
I made pillar candles as well as tapered candles. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.
My boyfriend and I are working on setting up an online shop, but if anyone is interested in buying candles or soap before we get the shop finished you can email me at email@example.com and I'll let you know what soap scents and candle colors I have ready to go.
In other news, I'm having my very first photography show in a few weeks at a local gallery. I'm trying to pick 6 images to frame and make prints of. If anyone has any suggestions on which pictures I should choose I'd love to hear them.

i recently watched dario argento's "phenomena" and absolutely loved the clothing worn by jennifer connelly. she stuck with a monochromatic wardrobe of beautiful oversized blouses and flowy skirts.
i also really loved her pajamas.
i'll definitely be stealing some ideas from her outfits in this movie.
if you haven't seen it, it's worth the watch. lots of creepy people in switzerland and lots of bugs.

i'm dying slowly
and i don't mind
& you don't notice.
*some lovely words i found on pinterest (the root of all procrastination)
*happy friday everyone. this will be a weekend for organization. my closets are out of control and must be tamed. i'm planning a major clothing, shoes, and accessory purge. also, my bathroom is under major renovation as my upstairs neighbors have a leak in their shower that has caused the ceiling to cave in, so i'll be staying elsewhere until it's repaired.
*in other news, it's getting really hot here so underwater picture attempt two is near. i'm hoping to get a little better at using the camera and working with models.
*listen to what i'm listening to here

I've been craving another tattoo for a few months now. I'll probably wait until after summer, but I can't say for certain. I'm thinking of getting something on my other side or on my back. These are some tattoos that I've been crushing on lately:
This one is so sweet and simple.
I'm also pretty in love with the idea of a floral tattoo.
Also, the moon phases is something I've been thinking about for awhile.
I'm going to a garden show this weekend and hopefully will get some lovely pictures. Also, I'm shooting some new pictures tonight and hopefully will get them edited before I leave for the weekend.
