#1: Gabrielle Bernstein.
This girl helps me to humble myself and put my life in perspective. Lately, I’ve been talking with friends about insecurity in myself and others. Why it happens, how it happens, why it drives us crazy, and how to avoid it.
Gabby has sufficiently found a “reset” button that allows her to look at a situation, pull herself back from it, and analyze what’s really going on with a non-judgmental eye.
That, my friends, is grace.
I’m a visual person. I would rather read a book that has pictures in it, and I prefer Skype to phone calls. Maybe I’m old fashioned. But when it comes to art, I love seeing it in every form.
Above, you see 100 Years of Fashion by Cally Blackman. Filled with designer clothing talent both beautiful and obscure, for some reason I can’t stop flipping through publications like these. Similar addictions of mine include Bullett, Muse, Style.com Magazine, and Vogue (US and UK).
Although I’ve always been fascinated by couture and the culture surrounding it, I’ve never been able to get a grasp on creating it on my own. Photography and digital means for creating things have my heart; drawing has always been a challenge. For now, I’ll stick with flipping through the pages of magazines. A little Pinspiration never hurt, am I right?
I’ve been eating so much lately it’s actually kind of baffling. Is it stress? Or is it yoga? I’m hoping it’s the latter. Either way, this Mediterranean Quiche from a local Starbucks was simply satisfying.
I should probably tack on Coffee to “Food” above. Today, I had a coffee date with Lisa to catch up and explore the meaning of life. We’ve decided it resides in Santa Monica. On the beach.
I’ve found that some of the best conversations I’ve ever had have occurred over beverages, usually (but not always) coffee. Iced. Quick note: Starbucks now has iced blonde roast! So if you’re a fan of the hot variety, definitely try this one in your summer endeavors.
My plans for the rest of the day? Catch up on some graphic design work, read, and possibly catch a yoga class tonight.
What are yours?
