October is here and it’s finally time for some warmer weather. I’m ready to break free of this winter mould I’ve been living in for so many months and I long for sun-drenched days and lingering summer evenings.
WHAT’S CURRENTLY INSPIRING ME
The feisty frontwoman of my all-time favourite band, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Everything about her is just so ridiculously cool, and her angst-filled vocals always manage to somehow haunt me. She’s truly a cool kid in her own right.
Incredibly old but incredibly amazing photo of Nicole Richie. I think the high-waisted thing took a while for me to get used to, but now that I’ve come to terms with it, I want her shorts for summer. Oh, and her sunglasses.
I just purchased Lykke Li’s debut album yesterday afternoon, and I have to say it is rather good. Think electronic pop with feeling. Her vocal ability is flawless and she has furthermore encouraged my recent infatuation with Swedish indie-pop. Very nice, indeed.

My impulse magazine buys at the supermarket never fail; they always manage to pick up the usual traipsing-behind-my-grumpy-mother that usually goes on when I make the mistake of accompanying her to pick up some groceries. It’s foolproof, I tell you!
Happy October, all. I have a good feeling about this month.
