MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: APRIL 29–MAY 5, 2019!

Belated birthday celebrations with friends and my family, a Long Beach music festival, plus shooting food in Little Tokyo and lots of new pottery fresh out of the kiln.

Enjoy!

We love a Monday morning dermatologist appointment.

Big trimming day. I’ve been bad about timing when I throw things of different sizes and they accidentally dry at the same time and I have to trim a lot.

In the morning took new photos of the new pieces I took home, including this bowl! White clay with robin’s egg glaze on the inside.

This beautiful piece was made 80% by my studio mate (the shape is his beautiful work) but I finished it by trimming and glazing.

Same with this!

So at my recent dermatologist appointment, I decided I was ready to go on isotretinoin aka accutane aka what I’m taking that isn’t the brand accutane. After months with an uphill battle with my skin, lots of tears and worrying, I’m at my wits end and just ready to accept that relief that things are improving is worth any side effects. I got a little order of stuff to help me make the plunge, and yes, I read online that nipple cream is the best for dry lips.

Now that it is sunny and warming up, it’s sooo nice to spend the morning outside, poking around my plants, weeding, etc.

Also brought these home from pottery, I was a bit careless about glazing but I think they are still cute chopstick rests. They are gifts for Mother’s Day weekend.

  1. I went to Just Like Heaven festival too! Flew in from NYC and hung out with some friends in LA, went to the festival and then took a trip down the coast to San Diego. I had never been to Long Beach before but it’s BEAUTIFUL out there. Counting down the (years) til I move. lol.

      1. I went on Friday. My main reason for going was to see Phoenix. They’ve been one of my favorite bands since 2001. Can’t believe that’s pushing 20 years good GOD lol. I saw them last year in Brooklyn and figured why not fly out and see them again. They put on such a great show. Was also excited for Beach House who I haven’t seen live in 6 years. I really enjoyed Yeah Yeah Yeahs but wish MGMT had a night spot. I feel like their set/visuals would’ve been more fun if it was dark out. Miike Snow and Grizzly Bear were good too. Bummed that I missed Tokyo Police Club.

  2. I have a few snakeplants around my house that I love! They look super neat and are easy to take care of. Plus, I read that they help filter the air!

  3. I just picked up a money tree and I love how cute yet low maintenance it is! I also think it has some air purifying qualities which I appreciate.
