It’s ninety-one degrees, and I’m lying in bed eating gummy bears and reading young-adult novels about witches the way good Osiris intended. Way too hot to put on anything but a bikini, so I’m bringing you another inspirations post. I haven’t done one in a while, and it’s always interesting to see how concrete my tastes are when I see all my favorite things at once. For example, I didn’t realize I was so into colorful brogues until I noticed that I’d bookmarked a good nine or ten posts featuring them.

Seriously, where does she find so many?! Source
Inside me lives a garish harridan with lipstick angling past her lipline. My body’s about sixty years too young. Source

Oh, and as of last night, my hair is pink again. God, I’ve missed magenta so.
