Playing with Fire and Water.


Greetings from a cabin overlooking Lake Oscawana,
here in the Putnam Valley of New York.

Babe Ruth stayed at the house next door in the 1930s. I'm here, with a group of friends in celebration of a birthday, in the house that he rents every single summer. Interesting fact? This is Rob Scheider's house, may he rest in peace, and his wife currently owns it. THE Rob Scheider from JAWS. Need more? They filmed a Sopranos episode here. So, sitting here in this amazing lakehouse, on a wrap-around porch in a rocking chair overlooking the dance of the sunset across the water dance floor , I am grateful.

But, back to the elements:
Considering my current location, my current obsession is only natural.
That's your cue to giggle.
 
Fire and Water Combinations

Cool the flames.
Put an ice pack on, honey, and chilllllllll.

We're talking nails and lips...two of the easiest and cheapest methods to changing up and spicing up your look with a punch that won't have you giving yourself a two-hour makeover and sweating it out on the train. I'm digging pairing some cooler mints, blues, and greens with their nemesis army of blood oranges, fruit-punch reds, and beet-y maroons. Most of the warm colors, though, possess cooler undertones, so these combinations look fantastic. We all know this girl loves her lipcolor, and typically, MAC makes the top of my list for many of my go-to shades for a bang without sending my debit card into stressed-induced coma. But, of course, YSL and Chanel produce to-die-for lip shades, and I wish that I could purchase an infinite amount of them. Alas, I must pick and choose. In addition, there are so many dupes, though, of these luxury brands' lipcolors at Target, Duane Reade, and other drugstores. So, you're on a budget? Welcome to the club! But, that's no reason not to look and feel like a boss. Like--Yeezy at the club--type of boss, ya hear?

    The long weekend was such a much-needed escape from New York City. It's difficult to believe that we're only an hour-long car ride away. What a vastly different world. Things are much simpler here. No screams or wails of urban life. No development.
    It hums...there's little noise created by something other than nature. It conjures memories of my childhood, on the river, at summer camp, and my family's cabin on a lake down south. As much as I adore the lights, the popping of champagne, and blurred, blinking scenes of New York and the adrenaline-rush of the jet-set lifestyle, there is something to be said for cutting out much of the fat that distracts us all, and get down to simply being present in the world around us and maintaining our real relationships.
    That's the filet of life--those prime cuts. Breathe, take it all in. Unfortunately, I have to return to the fight, the daily grind. But, these weekends propel my desire to push forward. To propel myself. I just need a self-commanded timeout here and there. We all do. Dip a toe in the lake water. Listen to the crickets. Gaze at a black wave of stars swallow you whole. We're each a minute bolt in the machine that is the living universe. Not unnoticed or unnecessary, mind you, but none more significant than our counterparts.

...Speaking of, I hear the sounds of laughter.
That's my cue to leave you.
There's my moment. 
Take yours.
