A mini photoshoot I had with Sue while I visited Worcester a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, they are long overdue! This style is not very me-like, but I’m definitely digging the rough/casual inspired look. I wish I could pull off this look a little more effortlessly. In my opinion, the simpler your style is, the more effort you have to put into to make it work. It’s really about playing with borderline “simple” look and “boring” look.
I recently came back from a trip to Puerto Rico with my bf. We stayed around the Old San Juan area, and that was probably the best idea ever, since we discovered this hole-in-the-wall type of Puerto Rican restaurant right near our hotel that served the best food during our stays there. PR in general was just full of happy and kind-hearted people. Everybody enjoyed a slow life there, so ultimately, my bf and I became a slow-goer at the end (and what happened to us as we immediately went to NYC right after, you could probably imagine). Oddly enough, my bf with his extra layers of sun tanning lotion, still remained rather pale compared to me, who pretty much frosted myself with extra layers of waterproof SPF 100+ sun screen…and still go tanned. But I got nice colors so that’s okay.
As for the trip itself, it was pretty much a rotation of beach, shopping, eating. Really, nothing more or nothing less. Old San Juan area had such beautiful architectures, so I didn’t stop taking pictures until the very last day. It almost reminded me of Adobes in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the way that the buildings were all colorful and felt very personalized (analyzation of an amateur who has no clue about architecture). We also went kayaking at Bio Bay in Fajardo, and experienced the water glow in the dark. It was so mesmerizing. Not to mention, our driver, José, had the most perfect evil laugh in the world. I am convinced that he dubs every villain’s evil laugh on screen.
Back in Boston after our PR trip, we went to watch The Great Gatsby. The cinema was packed with people, and when I say packed, there were literally people sitting on the floor to watch the movie. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the movie as much as I enjoyed the book. Generally speaking, I think the movie was very faithful to the original story, though there were some parts that I wished the movie would follow closely with the novel. All in all, a very wholesome movie, mostly because of the beautiful soundtrack, that I’m still listening to every single second of my life (especially Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” and Florence and the Machine’s “Over The Love”). I can literally listen to every song from the album and recall every scene that the music was played in the movie. This is addiction. So my point is, go see the movie, even if you have never read the book/hated the book.
