Musings of the Socially Aware

Akilah. 24. NYC by way of the Queen City. Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette.

WARNING: Do not take this blog too seriously. It is all encompassing of the fleeting thoughts I have, even if they are just momentary. Don't read too far into me.

The most accurate representation of me on the internet. I am one of those candle lady weirdos.

Today I bought expensive candles that have a “soothing crackle” when they burn. I also bought a loofah, and took a taxi home from manhattan because i’m a reckless spender. RECKLESS.

Well if you’ve ever been too lazy to sniff the holiday candles at Bath and Body Works, there’s a video for that…


I love Fall, and movies have given me a pretty romanticized idea of what Fall in New York city will be like. Big huge parks filled with orange and yellow leaves. Coffee shops. Apple Cider. Sweaters. Tea. Pumpkin everything. AHHH, I love it! I’m also realizing that I have supreme maternal instincts to the point that it feels like I’m nesting in my apartment. Case in Point: my festive and seasonally appropriate apartment decorations:

I haven’t driven my roommates crazy yet (probably due to the deliciously fragrant candles burning and outrageous amount of candy that I supply on the regular), but I still need to purchase the Nightmare Before Christmas on DVD, and decide what to do with this enormous bag of fake leaves I bought…

Pinterest taught me that Mason jars are cute and “homey” no matter what you fill them with so of course I filled them with the most underrated of all Halloween candies, Candy Corn. Seriously, why don’t people like it? Bill Maher was once quoted as saying:

“New Rule: You can’t call it a treat if everyone hates it. We’ve toppled Saddam Hussein, why can’t we get rid of candy corn? Everyone who puts this out hates your children and wants them to die, they just don’t have the guts to put a razor blade in an apple.”

Do you decorate your living space for seasons and holidays? Do you think it’s easier or harder to do in an apartment? Let me know!
