Aesthete: n. a combination of the athlete and aesthetician. one who lives as art,for art.

I am not Oscar Wilde, art's first aesthete, nor do I believe in the notion of 'art for art's sake', as aesthetes commonly do.


"society is often dismissive of people who are concerned with appearances, but those lacking in an appreciation of beauty are missing out on the point of being alive in the first place. It's important to appreciate life's ornamentation instead of just obsessing over its drudgeries."
-Lesley M.M. Blume

Why I love my job.

Today the coffee house I work for turned 7. We celebrated by being slammed every hour we were open, the husband of the power-couple owners showed up (he’s supposed to have been in Memphis, flying FedEx planes) and surprised us, one of our elderly regulars bought us flowers and signed the card “Papa”, we spent 5 hours decorating and 7 hours baking the night before, channel 24 showed up to interview us, and we had amazing drinks and customer service all day.

After a 12 hour shift, my feet are aching, but my cheeks are sore from smiling. And my boss texted me to thank me for my hard work tonight.

Oh, and there was cake!

But first, let me take a selfie! Me and my bee inkandi at pinup night. I didn’t think about it at the time but I shoulda had someone get pictures of us in our full outfits cause they were pretty on point.
