So Here We Are


Lakes Around the World Are Rapidly Disappearing
A few days ago, NASA posted startling satellite pictures of the Aral Sea in Central Asia, once the fourth biggest lake on the planet, which over the past 50 years has been virtually drained as a result of an ill-advised Soviet-era effort to create farms in the desert.

since I’ve come on home
well, my body’s been a mess
and I’ve missed your ginger hair
and the way you like to dress

Madewell continues, season after season, to be a symbol of effortless tomboy women in womenswear. Every year I’ve had my blog, as I mature, Madewell has matured with me. Almost as I develop a sense of what can be edgy bohemian, menswear inspired, and functional in my own life, Madewell becomes the epitome of it in a brand. 

It’s the girl that lives in your town that you really really want to be best friends with to go out antiquing for living room furniture, to bluegrass folk concerts in some local legend’s secret bar in his garage/barn, and to the MET on a weekend followed by champagne and gin in lower manhattan.

"I think I’m surprisingly different in real life than what people expect or what people project on to me. I’m not actually that awkward, I don’t think. I think people see me as this sarcastic person that doesn’t care about anything. But, on the contrary, I’m pretty emotional and sensitive and I care a lot about things and people. I think in moments where the spotlight is on me — like if I’m doing a talk show — my defenses come into play and maybe that’s why people see me that way. But, I think my sarcasm is often a way for me to get through those moments. I mean, if you came over to my house, I’d make you a cup of tea and be probably really interested in you."

Anonymous asked: I want to ask you how do you feel confident with yourself because sometimes I don't feel confident with myself and I'm always bring myself down ... P.s. Your really pretty :3


I’m the same way sometimes, I’m not always confident. I have days when I feel l bad about myself and stay home because I feel like I look like shit. I have days when I’m insecure. Everyday is not a good day and the confidence is not always there, but you have to be true to the person you wanna be and you have to want to feel good about yourself. Confidence is a state of feeling certain about who you are.




Marlene Søerensen’s blog spruced is one of my daily reads and, curious as I am, I’ve always been wondering how a person with such a great sense for style would live like. Then Marlene listed her space at airbnb and my jaw dropped while browsing through these…

Mike Brown, a 17 year old high school grad set to begin his first day of college Monday was shot 10 times for reportedly stealing candy and running, while unarmed. 

The neighborhood community came up in arms and began to protest against the police officers on the scene and dozens of police backup and k-9 dogs were called in.
