I made you a mixtape. Perhaps like Carina, I’ll make this a regular thing.
Most of these songs are about cities— New York and Los Angeles, specifically. Some are just songs I like listening to while walking at night and some, songs I love but haven’t listened to in a while. I wanted whimsical yet upbeat and songs that make me feel giddy.

1. Nolita Fairytale – Vanessa Carlton
2. Free Fallin’ – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
3. Everywhere – Michelle Branch

Aaaand some photos:
Eh, I meant to draw mouse ears on this photo and call it “country mouse” but I forgot and I’m too lazy to do it now. Anyway, I wanted to wear this today but the dress’s fabric was too hot. I got really sweaty (you’d think I just had a go and worked out on refurbished fitness equipment) just taking photos out in my balcony. So I changed into this:
The pink shirt is really, really thin. I bought it as a beach cover-up but I find it very comfortable for sweltering city weather.
