on starbucks, blueberry muffins, nail varnishes, & other such things.

{ image source: 5 i n c h & u p – it’s one of my new favorite blogs!}

{Edit: This was written earlier, and published later!} As of May 12, 2010, at precisely 2:30 a.m. EST (the things I do/write/make in the wee hours of the morn…), the items listed above consist of my current essentials to get by the monotonous last few months of high school. Whoever said that happiness can’t be bought is quite mistaken. I am exponentially happier when I’ve had my daily, three cups of caffeinated beverages, and eating Dunkin’s [massive] blueberry muffins and purchasing new nail varnishes never ceases to make me smile.

It’s life’s simplest pleasures, that’s all. I’m quite easy to please so long as I get my complete dosage of caffeine.

{+} Grande chai tea lattés and cinnamon dulce lattés, finished in one sitting at Starbucks, is quite the delicious combination. And since you can’t have coffee without some sort of a sweet carb, blueberry muffins are the perfect pairing with these coffee combinations.

{+} Loving OPI’s “Samoan Sands” and “You Don’t Know Jacques” nail varnishes, and Essie’s “Lilacism,” “Van D’Go,” and “Neo-Whimsical.” Need to try (a.k.a. buy) OPI’s “Mod About You” (quite the bright baby pink) and “Coney Island Cotton Candy” (a peachy nude) for a good, everyday colors. Any suggestions for a substantial baby pink shade?

{+} I bake blueberry muffins at 2:30 in the morning. Before you judge, note that I am making the best of these sporadic bouts of insomnia – not only do I have freshly baked breakfast, but the house smells absolutely delish.

{+} Running low on my signature perfume, and I need a new bottle (or a new scent, or both?). Ah, the little dilemmas in life a girl must face. I also came to the conclusion that I feel naked and incomplete on the rare occasions I leave the house without spritzing myself with an eau de parfum.

{+} I have a job – I’m quite excited that I got it! But I need another; job hunting it is.

{+} This weekend: Missed a recording session, but excited for two days of a video shoot. A 7 am call time = coffeecoffeecoffeecoffee. I totally made my life seem cooler than it is in reality, it’s just some awards ceremony opening/production. Rent inspired, totally 80’s rock, stoner aesthetic, but so, so cool.

{+} Dance dance dance. I wrote a love letter to it here, meaning I must love it so.

{+} Bananas + strawberries + mangos + golden kiwi = the most magnificent and delectable fruit available to mankind. Devour them, like I do.

{+} I love Tumblr.

{+} Now that summer 2010 is approaching, I’ve been wearing my hair au naturel as an ode to days of the beach bumming and evenings of lazy walks, fried oreos in hand. At the same time, however, I’ve been actually wearing (and loving) make up: mascara, liner, blusher, lipstick. It makes me feel quite glamorous whilst stuck in the monotony of high school.

{+} Coffee, blueberry muffins, nail polish, and dance classes account for my expenditures. I really need another job.

Just a few notes on my little things in my life, since you dolls have requested I make personal updates more often. Apparently they’re enjoyable? If you say so…

    Love Lilacism and Coney Island Cotton Candy. Mentioned them in a blog post this week! Try Essie’s Ballet Slippers for a nude, baby pink.
