Soft Lips and Creativity

Lately I have been really getting in touch with my creative side ever since I thought doing fashion journalism might be in the works for me. I mean I don't really have any credibility as to journalism or writing but I have been reading since I was a little girl. My parents would take my sister and me to Toys R Us and while my sister looked at barbie dolls, I was looking at which Boxcar Children series I have yet to read. I know many writers have the same interests as a child as well so I'm crossing my fingers and hope to see if I enjoy it!

This is what I have been doing lately:

 Making sure my lips are supersoft (I realized how much crusty lips look ridonk!) and my moleskine is handy when I have creative thoughts and ideas that I need to jot down.
 These are my lips must-have. Rosebud Salve which is a cross between vaseline and lipbalm and Smashbox Lip Exfoliant. The Rosebud Salve I put on religiously and have about 3 cans scattered around so my lips will never be dry. The Smashbox Lip Exfoliant I got as a gift from Sephora (for purchasing a crapload!) and it works wonders. It is a bit pricey at $18 but it's easy to use. You just get a small dollop and rub on your lips until it's smooth, then you just wipe off and then put on some Rosebud.
 My Moleskines. The smaller one is a weekly planner that keeps me up to date (I told you I was anal!) and the larger one is a Plain Moleskine that I sometimes draw and write ideas in.
My first page of my Moleskine: An Homage to my City.

  1. I hope things work out with the new gig!! And I am a chapstick addict...Josh and I have little containers or lip stuff scattered across the house and in all of my bags

  2. i love Rosebud Salve so much! i used to work at american apparel and we sold it there. i am addicted haha. and your drawing is awesome! you are super talented. i love your blog, im following x

  3. I love Smith's Rosebud as much much for the vintagey tin as for the perfect color and texture it has! The rose scent is so comforting too:) It makes me think about going back to it- because right now I have been using Dr. Haushka Lip Care stick and the container isn't nearly as pretty:)
    I have a couple of Moleskin notebooks too- they are simple and chic
    Great post!
