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 to look through their other tea selections.

Soap and candles

I'm currently working on some more handmade soap. I got some lovely new essential oils that I can't wait to try. 
I've also made another batch of bees wax candles. 

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 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.

fashion inspiration

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.

dying slowly

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

Tattoo inspiration

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.

a long time ago there was a girl who had let her heart succumb to darkness...

...but then another came along...

...and drew her like a moth to a flame.



*happy friday everyone. i'm looking forward to a very relaxing weekend at home. i have some new photos planned that i want to try to finish up this weekend.

*in other news, i finally finished redecorating a few little spots in my apartment so i'll probably have some pictures of that up soon. also, i have a couple of music and movie posts that i want to do.

only in dreams

only in dreams are you waiting to pull me away.



*finally got some new stuff edited. i wasn't originally happy with how this worked out, but after rotating it i've come to like it a little more.

*my dress is from gypsan.

a light in the dark

into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.

*finally got some editing done. i have another picture for tomorrow too.

*my dress is from gypsan

*i used one of my hand dipped candles for this picture. i've been working on making some new candles this week. i'm trying my hand at the rolled bees wax candles. so far they are turning out really pretty, but the sheets are rather delicate and i tore a few while practicing.

Lately things have been a little busy for me with work. I've been trying to establish a good routine to balance work, photography, and fun stuff. I think I've almost got one down. I figured I'd give you a little glimpse into recent happenings. Hugo is learning to take walks on his kitty leash (yes, I am one of those weird cat walking people). Also, I got lots of pretty stuff in the mail (more on what's in the box later). And I have been trying to make a little more time for reading. 
I hope everyone is having a fun summer so far. I can't wait for the pool to be open so I can try my hand at more underwater photography.
