In's and Out's 7


In’s and Out’s: very short and not nearly as gratifying as a favorites video.

In...

My shorter hair - I know I got my extensions out ages ago but I really can’t get over how good it feels to have all natural hair. Not only does it weigh less and feel more bouncy and fresh, but it also requires so much less maintenance. I can dry my hair in about 5 minutes now, run a flat iron through it and go. If having extensions did anything for me it taught me to appreciate my natural hair so much more than I ever would have. I’m not making any promises to never get extensions again, and being a total beauty girl by love and by profession I probably will, but still…its nice to know that I am happy with what I have.

The plush carpet in my LA apartment - My apartment has the fluffiest, softest carpet I have ever felt in my life. I have no idea what kind it is but it feels like a shag rug when I step onto it. After living in my house in college for 2 years with literally the cheapest carpet in the world (think the blue industrial kind with no padding at all) this is a total luxury.

Speaking of that apartment, Blair and my new office room - another favorite of mine; we have been working on setting it up nicely. We each have a matching desk and chair which we are going to use when we want to edit, blog, answer emails, or anything of the like. It makes us feel all business like which in turn helps us get more done. I am also buying a little shelf to put behind my desk, which will hold beauty products I want to review and write notes on.

This blog - call me crazy, but reading my old posts makes me happy sometimes. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’m always in really good moods when I write on here. I think writing in and of itself makes me happy.

My bathtub - This is just a general “in”. I have been taking baths like crazy, mostly because it gives me an excuse to lock my door and read for an hour. Everything about bathtubs would be an in, except for my bathtub in LA, which is an out. It’s unusually oval and I don’t fit in it properly, unless I sit Indian style, which is so weird I don’t even want to go into it.

Photography – I have recently fallen in love with photography. I really, really, REALLY want to take a class, so if anyone knows any good classes in the LA area please let me know!

Out...

One apartment “out”, my closet is inside of my bathroom, which I really dislike. I had first pick of the bedrooms and I chose mine, even though Blair’s closet is NOT in her bathroom, so I must live with it, but honestly I wish both rooms had it out in the bedroom. I feel like the steam from my showers will ruin my clothing! Bad, bad, bad!

The loudness of my house in the morning - I don’t know what it is but both the humans in my house and the dogs like to be extra loud until I wake up, and then they settle down. I think it’s a conspiracy.

The creepy bird creatures from the house of night series – last night I wanted to see the moon and stars as I fell asleep, so I opened up my blinds and got back in bed. This only succeeded it giving me the creeps as I imagined those scary creatures lurking outside my window, watching me sleep. Closed went the blinds and on went the light, resulting in no goodnight moon for Elle.

I'm reading the house of night series too, and those creepy birdlike creatures are freaking me out too! Let's hope we both get over it soon.

ha ha ha ha I love the house of night series!!!! my friend Kaiya and I always talk about how creepie the bird things are!!!! My favorite one is Hunted. You should also try the book "The Summoning" by Kelley Armstrong, and "The boy in the striped pajamas". The boy in the striped pj's is a super sad book, but totally worth it if you are a history junky like I am.

Elle I imagined the earth let out a little sigh* when you were born. Surely you know you contain so much more then the moon and stars! Yes they are arranged in an exquisite array; but they are distant and cold and only speak in riddles! Listen to their riddles and luminous outbursts if you must! But remember you have a gem buried deep within. A real heart like a precious ruby of which you adorn so perfectly. I'm beginning to think all those tutorials have made you think you were just another pretty face?:P

Hey Elle
Maybe you could purchase a wardrobe that you can put into your room, if you have the space? You could get a really lovely antique one and paint it or something like that, and then, if all your clothes don't fit, put your favourites in their? Just an idea :)
I absolutely love your videos, and your absolutely gorgeous <3
