lip colored lips

July 10th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I just realized that I paid a decent amount of actual human money for lip stuff that is actual just the color of my lips.

Are my colors fading? Am I an old shirt? Is this getting older? Is getting older purchasing things that make you look not like a better version of yourself, but just like you actually should?

why to thank Jay-Z

July 8th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Sometimes it’s like, oh no, I will never be physically flawless, and I must because that is the answer, ISN’T THAT THE ANSWER? But then I remember that JAY-Z CHEATED ON BEYONCE. This was his person, and he said no thanks, I’ll have another!

So basically physical beauty will get you NOWHERE EXCEPT OF COURSE FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND YOUR OWN LINE OF FITNESS WEAR AND PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WORSHIP YOU AMERICAN GODS STYLE.

Re: what it’s like to be married to me

July 7th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

7 AM. Husband is completely asleep. I’m wide awake.

Me: (leaping on top of him) WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A HOUSE!

Husband:….Hmm?

Me: We’re going to have a HOUSE!

Husband:…Yeah. We are.

Me: We’re going to live inside of it…and sleep inside of it….

Husband: Yeah, we are. But I want to sleep inside of this house. Right now.

Me: Okay, that’s fair.

A moment.

Me: BUT WANT TO HEAR THE REST OF ALL MY THOUGHTS?

Husband: zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Me: OKAY TELL YOU LATER

all I see

July 6th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Dear anyone who has made any sort of attempt to interact with me yesterday or today:

I’m once again attempting a juice cleanse, being that I ate approximately nine cakes over the weekend (NOT SORRY) so please just be aware that that THIS IS WHAT I SEE WHEN I LOOK AT YOU:

And so I’m sorry if I try and dip your face in ketchup / ask you if come with a side of a ranch / sprinkle you with salt / try and take our conversation home in a To Go box / LICK YOUR HANDS BECAUSE THEY SMELL LIKE YOUR LUNCH.

catsual

July 5th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

One of the many great things about sharing a house with a Cat is that their vibes are 90% chill, and if you are feeling perhaps at all anxious or overwhelmed, all you have to do is observe your Cat chilling SO HARD it’s as if time has stopped,

And suddenly, you are as calm as the Cat, and your life consists of nothing but finding flat surfaces to lay upon and peaceful gazing and the occasional can of fish.

Patriotic Perspective

July 4th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

On this Fourth of July, let us not be distracted by tiny flag shorts and giant hot dogs and things that go Boom in the night, but instead remember what this day is really, actually about, which is of course MY NIECE WEARING THIS OUTFIT.

women of cake

July 3rd, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

My friend took these pictures at the curtain call after opening night. They make me so happy. A play written by a woman, directed by a woman, starring three very wonderful women, about women,

All of whom are currently very grateful, exhausted and very full of cake.

PLEDGE.

July 2nd, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I was apparently feeling very patriotic yesterday.  In not one or not even two but in fact MULTIPLE PICTURES from the Cake’s opening night (WHICH WENT GREAT!)  I’m doing a weird pledge allegiance to the flag hand thing:

And so, a Pledge:

I pledge allegiance

to my hair

and also to my face

and to Rent the Runway

and to women everywhere

for all of the time we spend trying to look like the best version of ourselves so that someone might take a picture of us and we might look at that picture and feel, that is me, I look great, but then what really happens is we force our husbands or friends to take our picture as we walk towards them and they  begrudge us but we make a weird stiff face because we know it’s happening

WITH HAIRSPRAY AN BOBBY PINS AND ALSO PROBABLY SOME JUSTICE FOR ALL

youngsters in love

July 1st, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Happy (38th?) wedding anniversary to these two fresh faced youngins,

Who, I forget but it’s true, because this is how time works, who were once youngish grown ups in their 30s just like myself,

EXCEPT FOR YOU KNOW THEY HAD FOUR KIDS AND A MORTGAGE AND IN GENERAL JUST WAY BETTER SENSE OF STYLE / REALLY STRONG COUPLES’ CHRISTMAS OUTFIT GAME.
