One: Number 31, 1950


Today is my 31st birthday, and what better way to celebrate than to share the One: Number 31, 1950 Jackson Pollock painting. Last week I went to the MoMA to see this in person. Standing in front of the large canvas felt a lot like my life at the moment… chaotic with moments of calm. Things look like a mess, but in reality, they are carefully conceived moments.

I don’t know about you, but in my house, Sunday is a day for indulgent beauty rituals. Whether I wander around the house all day in a face mask, or steam my face and slather on a new face oil, I always take an extra bit of time for beauty on Sundays.
