Friday Favorites // 047 ::

  1. Story time! I lived in an O ring choker during my high school years which, in retrospect, was probably wildly inappropriate. I am certain the website I bought it from did, in fact, call it a bondage collar. I’m not sure why that slipped under the radar at school. Then again, I guess if you’re the quiet “artsy” girl in AP classes who has followed all the rules since you were six, you can get away with just about anything. And not to be morbid, but I’m sure the “dead mom” card came into play on occasion. Further proof: my friends and I once ran a late 80s/early 90s themed lunch time radio show that we named “Tight Alice.” We also performed a musical puppet show version of The Crucible in which we yelled/sang the word “whore,” loudly, for no reason, and with no repercussions. So. Anyway. This choker by Blackhorne makes me feel nostalgic.
  2. This shortie romper is the cutest. Floral on black means springtime!
  3. This distressed leather travel wallet from Free People is perfect.
  4. Whiskey River Soap Company is currently on my radar. Soap for Plain Old Depressed People (which smells like peppermint schnapps) is my favorite, but there are some really funny ones.
  5. I’ve been hearing good good things about Black Moon Cosmetics. Libra is a flattering mauve-y nude shade, and I’m into it. These lipsticks are vegan, cruelty-free and free of parabens.
  6. This is the coolest lip balm container I’ve ever seen.
  7. I want every single one of these blind box figures. The newest series by Nathan Jurevicius and Kid Robot  is called Nightriders.


  • $5 spring polishes at Julep until Sunday! Pastels are not my thing, but there’s a great matte metallic silver (“Jo”) on sale, too! Stock up on these shades while you can. Julep polishes are 5-free and vegan-friendly!
  • Tj and I recently started watching The Detectorists and I’m really into it. It’s a much sweeter show than I expected it to be.
  • This collaboration between Darby Lahger (Old Hag) and Naomi Nowak (of Raintower) is called Soothsayer and it’s absolutely magical. The design is available in a few different styles, all handmade in Sweden from recycled textiles. These two woman are beautiful human beings, inside and out. I will never be so beautiful, but that’s okay. Because there is proof that beautiful, intelligent, talented people exist in the world, and I’m happy about that.

Happy Friday! I’m spending my weekend finishing up some schoolwork and working on a potential project proposal before we head down to DC on Monday. Tj’s on vacation! Expect photos! Or maybe not. I’m really inconsistent, lately. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve got a lot on back burners. I’m hoping the rest of the words come soon. Do you ever think about how some stories from your life might not really be your stories to tell?
