Life, Lately / by Elise Joseph

It's been a little quiet around here lately, but that's because I'm hard at work on some fun projects that I can't wait to share more about. I also just signed a lease on a new studio space, and am excited to have an office outside of home! It's been a busy summer, and here are some things I've been enjoying as of late:

+Music to fall asleep to—a playlist by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke. You can listen to the mix here.
+Brass collapsible Japanese pens, which I'm told will evoke very intense feelings—mine arrives in the mail tomorrow. Hope it's worth the price!
+Picking the perfect paint color for the new studio. I’m planning to go with Skin Powder by Pure & Original.
+Endless outfit inspiration via Virginia Calderon’s Instagram.
+Binge-watching Stranger Things on Netflix. We finished the season in four days.
+Nuggets of wisdom in this article on The Incalculable Value of Finding a Job You Love.
+Trying hard (and failing hard) at picking a favorite ankle boot for the season.
+Modern Lovers by Emma Straub, and this interview with the author on Man Repeller.
+A visit to the newly renovated Belcourt Theatre, an innovative and historic film center—and one of my favorite places here in Nashville.
