It's still too hot out for a wool blazer but I'd just spend several hours in a frigid art museum prior to shooting this post. I get cold easily. Nevertheless, you will find me lately outfitted in a light jacket and shorts as the residual summer heat slowly (very slowly) wanes. Texas, y'all.

My Summer of Transformation is coming to a close and, to re-cap, I've made several personal and professional changes. A few highlights: I accepted a golden opportunity to develop new skills in my art career. I tweaked my appearance with a liberating new haircut, freedom from bleach and color. Started running. Tried Kundalini. Meditated at a Buddhist temple. Ramped up my health and wellness regime including a major chiropractic overhaul. Spend quality time with family.

Next on the agenda: Autumn Renewal. Watch this space for more.

As your summer (or winter, in southern latitudes) closes, I'd like to know: what did you change, tweak or improve?

And on the fashion front, I'm about to head over to Nordstrom for their Triple Points shopping days (ends tomorrow). I think I hear Zella Activewear calling my name...

As MAC does from time to time, they recently brought back a few discontinued limited edition items including Sweet and Sour, a soft peach cream lipstick.

Have you bought any new lip colors lately?

JOHN DERIAN DECOUPAGE TRAY

I have a fondness for bats. No, not because I live in Austin, Texas (although it certainly makes bat-watching easier). A fascination with these little creatures of the night began in my teens. While summering at my aunt's Florida home, I would pore over her Bat Conservation magazines. 

As a gift, J. bought me this adorable bat tray from Blackmail Boutique here in Austin. I use it to hold lipstick, fragrance samples, earrings and such.

Do you like bats?

Here shows another variation on the black and grey theme. Expect more combinations of these two non-colors in future posts.

All you fellow black wearers out there, do you combine it with grey? And speaking of grey, would you let your hair go in that direction? Clearly, I am. How does it feel? Sublimely liberating, rebellious and lovely. As a bonus, I found my mojo again.
