Today was an amazing day. I offered to stay late at work to wait for a few collection reviews to come in and just as I was hating my life, into the department strolls Grace Coddington, Creative Director of Vogue. I almost choked on my peanut butter M&M in complete awe. Myself and a couple others proceeded to have the most unbelievable impromptu half-hour chat with her.

Summer is pretty relaxing, especially compared to the stress of a school year. It also means I get stuck in the most unhealthy sleep cycles. Think bed at 3 AM, wake up at 11 AM. What do I do while the rest of the house sleeps? Watch netflix documentaries, of course. While netflix's selection of regular movies leaves much to be desired, they have a HUGE selection of documentaries.
