I Don’t Care if it Hurts I Wanna Have Control

As a Capricorn, I’m supposed to be a bit of a control freak. I’m not. It sounds like a lot of work. I prefer to pretend that I don’t care about how things turn out because if something goes wrong, it’s not my fault. That’s much healthier, right? Despite it being the holiday season, I’ve been feeling a bit stressed.

I do find that new clothes help with stress, especially free clothes! This shirt and jeans are from The Swapaholics clothing swap I mentioned before. I know, it’s not the most exciting outfit, but I spent the day walking around and wanted to be comfortable.

I went to the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) and left with this cool…thing. It’s supposed to be a table runner- there are matching placemats available. But currently it’s hanging on my bedroom wall and looks great. I don’t have a dining table, anyway.

MAC chartreuse pigment. My sister hated it, but I’m sort of obsessed with this shade.
