I feel like it’s been a great week on my Bloglovin’ queue–I’ve added a lot of liked posts! I consider blogs to be one of my favorite, most valuable forms of entertainment, so I decided to share some of my fave posts from the last week or so with you today. :)
the weird girl trope. | FASHION PIRATE
I think Arabelle is a breath of fresh air. She’s so confident and smart, especially for her age. I wish I had half the guts she has when I was 19. This post is her response to another blog post that discussed the author’s annoyance at her perception of a trendy blog culture of attention seeking, colorful, trendy, childish girls. I believe so strongly in the opinions that Arabelle so passionately lays on the line here, but especially this part: We should be building each other up, not shaming each other. There is enough of that everywhere already. Celebrate your identity and I will 100% be there with you, as long as you don’t fuck with mine…all of my personal appearance choices are things I’ve made purposefully and meaningfully because they help me feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and my own decisions validate the person I hope I am. Get it, gurl!
Cocktail Hour: Sippin’ Summer Sunshine | Little Chief Honeybee
Kaelah’s one of my favorite bloggers and I think it’s an awesome layer of personality that she has a background as a bartender. I never drank alcohol until pretty recently, so it’s exciting to try all these new varieties of drinks. I want to try all of these recipes, but especially the ’57 Chevy. It’s pretty much everything I love!
Guidance Tape for Winged Liner | The Beauty Department
Umm why have I never thought of this?! I’ve gotten pretty confident in my winged eyeliner skills, but this is so simple and smart, I’ve got to give it a try! That’s the kind of tips The Beauty Department is best at!
How to Make a Seamless Repeating Pattern | Scathingly Brilliant
I’ve made repeating patterns in photoshop before, but apparently I’ve been doing it the hard way! This was a great tip from Kate that I’m definitely going to try out ASAP. I feel like no matter how many years you’ve been using Photoshop , you can always learn something new.
DIY Celtic Knot Headband | Cornflower Blue Studio
Rachel always shares beautiful and inspiring art and craft projects and I’m in love with this simple but lovely headband DIY! I’m going to make my own for sure! I think it would make an awesome scarf, too.
