Beauty in a Week

If you’re looking for a BB cream review or a sandy peach lipstick swatch, sorry to disappoint.  These are just a few shots of things that I found beauty in this past week.

This is the winner–hands down.  As I slipped past them, it was, without a faltering moment that I decided that I must immortalize this in my iphone.  It literally brought tears to my eyes.  One day, I’m going to find this and have it for myself

Heirloom babies to make into tomato sammies.  Yum.

Fresh lychees to snack on in the car and dribble sticky juice all over yourself and not be able to find a napkin.  Yup.  That’s me.

Berries growing in my besties backyard!

Can you put a price on pleasure?  For $6, you can experience the dark chocolate cardamom sort.

A piece of Heaven (I’m certain).  I picked up The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (apparently, it wasn’t depressing enough the first time around).

The thing here to notice is his pack.  The poor thing is so damn old that it’s literally splitting at the seams.  I stuck my hand in to fish something out to see if he’d notice, just to be funny.  You’ll be happy to know that it’s since been retired.  Silly hippie college kids today.

The sky is angry but the tall grass is begging you to play.

So intense!

The city right before the skirts and the heels come out to play.

What’s something beautiful you saw or experienced this week?

    Great photos. I assume the older couple are each holding onto the trolley, my guess is maybe one needs to learn on it for support, in other words they are helping each other.

    A very amusing post! I must say I have never seen here such fresh lychees… The Bell Jar??? There is no way I could torture myself with it again. It was so many years ago, but I still remember how depressing. You are very brave
