Pink Chocolate Bars from Bottega Louie, my favorite restaurant in downtown Los Angeles.
It's huge white marble with crown molding and gold shelves of pastel pastries & every french item you could ever want. During the day the sunlight floods in through the huge windows and you can sit at a little shiny table and order the most beautiful lunches and draw or read...or drink. At night it becomes quite packed with loud people, dressed in banker suits, girls in pretty dresses and you have to fight for a table but it's ALWAYS worth it.

I came home to find a big box on my doorstep the other day...there is nothing that can make me happier than recieving actual mail. Dont' you think? One of my very best friends had sent me a box all the way from Nashville totally out of the blue. It felt like tiny Christmas. Look at these incredible Ostrich boots by Kathryn Amberleigh...I can't stop wearing them. She also sent a copy of the Ghost World book - one of the funniest movies ever-, and some magnets of Paris that now replace my boring refrigerator magnets. Ahhhh I love her. Also her line American Gold is just getting more amazing each season. GO HERE! spanishmossvintage.com

It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. Millions are condemned to a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in silent revolt against their lot. Nobody knows how many rebellions besides political rebellions ferment in the masses of life which people earth. Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex." - Charlotte Bronte

"There could not have been a lovelier sight; but there was none to see it except a little boy who was staring in at the window. He had ecstasies innumerable that other children can never know; but he was looking through the window at the one joy from which he must be for ever barred."
"All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end."
-J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan.
