The backseat of a NYC cab always make for the best photo ops. Surprised that my hair even looked this good the morning these photos were snapped. It was the middle of fashion week and we were in such a rush getting from one place to the next. Thank goodness for beach bum hair wax. Does a head good.

Hoping to use my off time after work this week to get back into some things that used to be the norm in my life, like strumming my guitar and learning a new song on it, reading before going to bed, and writing poems down in my notebook. Sometimes it is hard to make time for things you really love and are passionate about when you work 24/7 and work hard to keep up a blog. Some things just get thrown on the back burner without you even realizing it until it hits you way too late. By the time I get home from work, it's usually already 7 PM, and then I usually either go to the gym or cook. When that is all done and I'm ready to relax, it already feels like it's bedtime and all I can think about is sleep. I tried to get back on track with my book last week, but ended up falling asleep before finishing the chapter I was on. I was bummed out, but my eyelids just couldn't stay open. I work very hard, sometimes too hard I feel, but now I want to work even harder to find balance amongst every aspects of my life. Besides all the good stuff that I love and want to reintroduce into my life, I also want to go through everything in my room and start on a little spring cleaning. Out with the old. Spring is just around the corner. I can taste it on the tip of my tongue. I'm looking forward to a fresh new season and a fresh new start. I've never experienced a nice spring on the east coast before. I hope it treats me well.

You always look so stunning! I'm so incredibly envious of your hair! I know what you mean about finding it difficult to make time for the things you love. I'd really like to start reading before bed again and drawing in my sketch book like I used to, but I'm always so busy so unfortunately it's difficult to reserve time for it. Maybe I can make it a late new years resolution xxx

It's great to work, but don't get buried by work because it haven't made anybody a happy person.
Do what you love as much as you want but there's limit to everything and it's a gift to be able to recognize it.

Spring cleaning seems like a good fresh start! :)

Ohman, I totally know that feeling when your work consumes your life and theres no time for anything else... its hard to find balance, but I think we'll end up being happier by by figuring out what is important in life.

Lizzie said...

Your hair looks gorgeous as do you :)

A good work/life balance is a constant struggle for me. Most nights I don't get much done and end up just bumming out because I am so worn out from the day. Then I try and squeeze everything and all the fun things into the weekends....this needs to change...blahhh.. Less work would be a great solution, I wish hehe

One of these days I'll get to fashion week.
I also find it difficult to find time to do the things I love - read a good book, make a piece of jewelry, or whatever my heart desires. By the time I tend to everyone and everything at home, there's not much time left.
So I say we make a pact to take a morning off from our work and take some time to ourselves. Reschedule your meetings and I'll drop everything at home. And we'll do what we like!

Your hair looks incredible. I love the choppy piecey layers, but I can never get a stylist who can do it so it looks like yours. And I agree, surfer paste is the best
