I used to be obsessed with magic hour - the hour of sunset or sunrise where everything has this golden glow to it, like the world is about to be set on fire by fairies. Ashka and I climbed onto my rooftop and took a few shots in the fading afternoon light - everything seems so much clearer and fuzzier during magic hour. Rediscovering things you used to like is such an amazing joy - listening to old bands and certain songs that bring back specific memories, finding that the lyrics come scarily easy to your lips despite hearing it for the first time in years. Reading is another big one for me - finding books that are so good that I end up reading them WHILE I'm walking, on the train, at work, in bed, basically during every waking moment. It's so easy for me to forget how much I actually love reading when I force myself through books that are slower or not as well written. Two that have put me on a reading bender have been Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl (I know I'm late to the party) and Susannah Cahalan's Brain On Fire.
Being terribly coordinated in clothing choices is something else that's a little guilty pleasure of mine - the whole handbag to shoe match isn't something I would be ashamed of. When my bra matches my top, which matches my shorts, and my shoes match my jewellery? That's a winner.
