This week I sprained my ankle, forced plenty of rest, applied arnica and ice approx. 400 times, soaked in Epsom Salts, wrote a letter, read This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki twice, and bleached my hair blonde.

There you have it. A tiny little fruitfly hotel. It really is fascinating how effectively these traps work. Watching them fill up is almost as interesting as observing ants disassemble a dead bee. I typically release the fruitflies in the wild, but if you'd like to make their stay more... terminal... add a drop of dish detergent to the vinegar to break the surface tension of the liquid and they'll drown in sweet oblivion. Happy hunting!

My current color treasure hunt is this red on Mia Wasikowska's lips from the August 2014 issue of Interview magazine. I've found it on dusty old dried roses hanging in closets... now, tell me: WHERE oh WHERE does it exist in a lipstick tube? Hmmmm?
I'm not huge on buying and having lots of things, but necessity means I do go hunting from time to time. My wardrobe staples wear out so infrequently and I usually fix them when they do, so I seldom need to replace my major players. Thinking on it, the way I approach building a wardrobe is actually more akin to the acquisitions of professional hockey teams. My current overcoat's contract is up next winter. She's won me many Stanley Cups and I believe the league should retire her number after she leaves. The hunt for a rookie replacement will be an exciting chase - I've been scouting a few talented players from the remotest islands in Canada.
In the meantime I'll just stick to making little fruitfly traps and putting them near my garbage can.
