Nothing improves my productivity game like bright, tidy desk decor. This weekend I finally cleaned off the surface of my desk after weeks of letting it drown under clutter, and I feel like a new woman! Click through for some inspiration for your own dreamy at-home workspace…
This woman is taking fashion sins a little more seriously than most.
Christian blogger Veronica Partridge has been getting a lot of attention for a blog post earlier this month in which she vows to no longer wear leggings in public because of her religious beliefs. The decision — which she writes weighed “heavy on her heart” for several months — was done to inspire fewer “lustful” thoughts in men. Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…
Now that targeted marketing knows that I’m getting married, all of my social feeds and every ad sidebar on every website I visit is covered in white dresses, white shoes, white veils, white gold bands, beautiful colorless diamonds. Lots of white women in their white gowns, posing in white rooms for advertisement stock photos.
I wish that there was a timer you could put on targeted ads, or that they were more intuitive, and that when you did purchase the wedding item you need, they’d stop advertising that item to you. I bought my dress this weekend. It is black. It’s a skirt from Anthropologie and a leotard from American Apparel. I’ll probably get a belt from ASOS, and I’m finishing it all off with gold flats and a crap-ton of rhinestone, druzy, and gold-spike jewelry. I’m going to look like a space ballerina and it’s going to be awesome. Keep reading »
Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is a certified cult classic, the kind of lip color thing that shows up on best-of and must-have lists everywhere for years and years. It’s widely touted as a color that looks good on everybody. I am reluctant to believe that anything is ever one-size-fits-all. Clothing is not. Shoes are never.

Yoga teacher and wellness expert Tiffany Cruickshank teamed up with her friend Renata Facchini of Liquido to put together a limited-edition fitness wear line with a focus on styles that will hold up in everyday life as well as at the gym. I love the concept of BFFs working together, but what’s even better is that ten percent of the line’s proceeds will go toward Yoga Medicine‘s charitable initiatives. For years, I was never too into shopping for fitness wear (I always figured that money could be better spent on cute street clothes or a vacation because nobody I know ever sees what I wear to the gym anyway), but then I walked into one too many fitness gear sample sales this fall and became mesmerized by Fabletics. Basically, I’m now hooked on window shopping for bright-colored leggings, so I love that buying something from this line contributes to a good cause! Click through for some cheerful pieces from Cruikshank’s line!
Last month, Cut Video released a timelapse film of a model showing off hair and beauty looks from the past hundred years. Now, they’ve released a sequel! Watch model Marshay take us through the decades with her gorgeous looks. Now all we need are Pinterest tutorials for all these styles so that I can inevitably screw them up. You can view both videos side-by-side here, and if you’re into this century-in-a-minute deal, take a look at this video featuring 100 years of dance and style, which is one of my favorite things on the internet ever.
