Monday Memo // 4

Listening:

I can listen to "Back, Baby" by Jessica Pratt on repeat. 

I love the words, simplicity and sweetness. 

Sometimes I pray for the rain.

Reading:

Writer's Market 2016. Doing my research with this an annual resource book for writers who wish to sell their work. The publication is released by Writer's Digest Books every year. 

 My favorite publications I have come across: "Sheep! Magazine" and "Spudman." Mostly self-explanatory. (image via seriouseats.com)

Craving:

Ben & Jerry's new non-dairy ice cream. I've tried the Chocolate Fudge Brownie and P.B. & Cookies. Made with almond milk, they are both quite satisfying. They maintain those great B&J chunks/texture, but feel a bit less heavy. I think my body is cooperating less with lactose as I get older, so it is a pleasant discovery. And now consistent craving. 

 I'm sure by the end of the summer I will have tried them all. (image via brostick.com)

Wearing:

Dresses that are essentially long, short-sleeved shirts. Most popular color schemes and patterns: blue-purple-turquoise plaid, heather grey, wacky tropical/jersey combo. 

 Just saw this Nasty Gal dress and want to add sea creature motif to the shirt dress collection. (image via lyst.com)

Watching:

"The Sopranos." This is one of those holy television programs I have never seen. As a die-hard "The Wire" and "Six Feet Under" lover it is surprising this has never been viewed. So I am beginning the saga. Instantly, I can tell this is going to be a fabulous, dramatic undertaking.

Wanting:

I recently started painting my fingernails after a decade-long hiatus. I need some new colors. I love having that fresh, polished look. I think I bright poppy coral or milky coffee color would be nice. I wish I had nabbed the Cupcakes and Cashmere nail polish collection at Sephora when it debuted in February.
