dark things

Some people have a taste for light, airborne things, but I have come to realize that I am a dark pleasures girl. Don't believe me? Just ask my friends...they'll tell you that I will throw out a perfectly good (in thier eyes) cup of coffee because I can see through the liquid as I pour it...yes, I not only want to taste that coffee bean, but also the richness burnt into it. Lighting in my home is always turned way down for ambiance. I love me my dark wash jeans, and even my blog page needs a nightlight. Some other dark things that I have found a devotion for are:

Deep red wine

Dark chocolate

Dark hair...I always love blondes better when they become brunettes! Yes, even SJP.

Dark beer

Burnt popcorn

Black paint...it makes any room look a bit more modern. And if it's chalkboard paint, well, extra points!

Dark nails...I am loving navy blue a good bit. (but only on short nails, Elvira!)

Deep, dark, smudgy, smokey eyes...Lara Stone wears them well.

So tell me, dear viewers, which are you- a person of dark pleasures, or a lover of all things light?

  1. Definitely dark. Weather it is the deep, rich hues on my walls that soothe my soul, my favorite black dress that is classic and so Hepburn, the Green&Black that lies nestled in the top drawer of my dresser, or the burnt orange linens that enrobe me at night, I love the richness that each affords.
