1. Loving Lush Twilight Bath Bombs. I could spend hours soaking in a hot bath with a book while one of these turns the water a sparkly lavender. A few weeks ago, I was so relaxed with a Twilight bomb I nodded off in the tub for over an hour, and only the water getting chilly woke me up! It may have also been all the wine, but either way, I was way super relaxed.
2. Thinking about the direction of Haute Macabre. It’s been on my mind a lot the past few weeks, and I’ve been drafting a lengthy post about where we’re going and how Nixon and I have evolved since the site first launched in 2008. Anyone that has seen any of my Thread Bared posts here can see that I’m more drawn to vintage dresses now over draped layers of monochromatic blacks, and it reflects in what I’m drawn to posting there.
If any of you are HM readers here, I’d love to hear your opinion about whether or not a site with such a specific niche can broaden its content, without contradicting its original mission statement.
3. Listening to Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures on repeat all week. I bought Ryan a copy of Peter Hook’s new book, and he made me promise I had to wait until he read it before I did. It’s taunting me from the shelf! Truthfully, I’ve got on The Velvet Underground right now, but it’s the first time in days I’ve played something else!
4. Nervous about an upcoming eye exam. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it before, but I’ve been blind as a bat since I was a kid. Without contacts I’m totally useless, and my depth perception is terrible while wearing glasses. A few months ago, while having a regular exam for some new contacts, the optometrist discovered a bubble on my retina and referred me to a specialist to take a closer look. She explained that the layers of my retina are separating, and that the specialist can determine if and when I’ll need surgery to repair it. Keep your fingers crossed for me, will you? [this is probably one of the more personal things I’ve ever shared publicly, so thanks for listening]
