E is for Everyday Beliefs

Laura does an ongoing series on her blog called “Today I Believe” where she lists things on her mind at the moment, little truths about her life.  It’s simple and lovely and I very much adore it, and so today, I believe…

1. A day I don’t read an actual in-my-hands-book is a bad day indeed

2. Fresh flowers go a long way

3. So does a good bra

4. Seriously, always, always try on the bra before buying it

5. Baths are great, but only for about five minutes

6. Mariah Carey solves most problems

7. Fiona Apple solves most others

8. “Eternal Flame” belongs on every playlist I ever make

9. So does “Always Be My Baby”

10. Rollerblades, yep

11. Leisurely, very late night swims, yep yep

12. McDonald’s when I’m craving McDonald’s is important

13. The less social media I have in a day, the better

14. Scales do nothing for my mental health

15. Filling in my eyebrows is the only makeup I need to feel OK

16. Sunsets are wonderful and social media rules about them are stupid

17. Hats are not my thing

18. Nor are blazers

19. Or red lipstick for that matter

20. Ankle boots are my thing

21. And mini dresses are REALLY my thing

22. I will always miss angry ‘90s female artists in a deep, emotional way

23.  Letting things go is a lot harder than letting things in

24. More Malibu.  Always, always more Malibu.

    I completely agree with your first one. A day where I don’t read a book is a bad day. Or at least read a manuscript (published or not). Great post :)
