Icy Land

The Color of that bit between sleep and awake, the color of perpetual dawn, a place where no bad pictures can be taken.
Iceland is the color of my softest dreams
It’s a place that can make pastel dark and a place with its eyes half shut with frost, a place of calm, collected beauty, a place of cold fingers and cashmere lust.
Iceland is the most romantic of ice-cold flurries, slushiest of whispered sunrises, and breathtaking cold pastel beauty. It is a place for tea, coffeeshops, and hotsprings to remember forever.
The sound of Bjork and Sigur Ros.
The taste of pepperoni sandwiches
The smell of…eggs.
The lightest pink breath of the north
The shiver of baby blue.
A place where you will never notice there aren’t any trees because the water is deep and the snow white white white: a place that will capture you if you’re not careful.
A place that beckons the imagination of a fairy-tale believer.

Summer color from Icy Land


Meet Meghan, the ultimate pin-up mermaid and glossy taste of summer inspiration for the dark months (until we honeymoon in Tahiti). Meghan is amazingtown goddessville. She is what gloss is made of; beautiful inside and out, sweet, spunky, summery, and frosted with sugar, spice, and sparkles When you told me you were thinking of coloring the tips of your hair, I knew she’d be your superhero. Purple, blue, and red streaks = mermaid princess. Meghan uses real dye, but I know you are hesitant about the bleach, so I found a cheap, easy temporary alternative using Mac color pigments or my new little favorite travel companion- the Color Bug by Kevin Murphy (only available in salons, LAME). Grab yourself some hair wax, a small paintbrush, some summer tunes (California Sunrise), and some hairspray to keep the color from escaping onto your clothes (I guess in your case that doesn’t apply since you’re always nekkid) and away your are to amazingtown goddessville. Shimmer shimmer shimmer. Paired with a party dress and cheeky stockings ala Meghan = extra shimmer squared. Colored hair is a great way to brighten up any outfit, especially if you have to wear black to work. Temporary colored hair is great if you have a real job. Haha, not me. Ever.

I am so thankful for having your beautiful glimmering soul and super-model bone structure in my life. Blessed was the day when you walked into the classroom of Thai Language I (like a weirdo two days later than the rest of our group after being held captive by a stateside blizzard) and our vibes collided.

I cannot wait to rule the Southeastern Hemisphere with you.

I love you, Sugartits. xxo

I am walking Nahla (Brittney’s French bulldog) down the aisle for her July wedding, and I have decided that it is necessary and fitting to have a puppy at our Kiwi nuptials.
