Another week, another list. What’s on yours?
- Hilariously pointed article from The Cut about why red carpet makeup is completely unflattering on “normal” people.
- There’s a new app released by the Barbara Lee Family Foundation to help encourage women into running for public office. The app is essentially a “Running for Office 101” guide, and another fabulous point? It is absolutely, totally bipartisan. Get your election on!
- I love this guest-post on The College Prep about money management. It’s true…you do go broke one small purchase at a time!
- How are you using your limitations to inspire creativity?
- Meditation has seriously helped me since moving out, and here’s a phenomenal New-Agey but back-to-basics guide to meditation. You only need a few minutes a day!
Fashion/Style (apparently I was reading a lot of style news this week):
- Karlie Kloss, everyone’s favorite All-American supermodel and Taylor Swift BFFL, has scored her first Chanel campaign. (About time, honestly). Check our her haunting Coco Noir shots on Fashionista.
- I’ve always been a Refinery 29 junkie, so forgive me for lots of their links, but this interview they did with the blogger behind “Hipster Hijabis” is crazy good. I love how Summer advocates for her own beliefs and values through her clothes. Say what you will about “oppression,” immodesty, and religion, but how often do we advocate for what we believe through our clothes?
- Speaking of clothes, stripes on stripes is a thing, a thing I could strongly support.
- Recently discovered Lone Wolf Magazine and my love for indie publications is back in it’s off-the-beaten-path-glory. (Speaking of, check out this think-piece about Kickstarter-funded magazines.)
- Carine Roitfeld’s spread for Harper’s Bazaar is pure sex and also pure style. I love how she can mix incredibly sensual pieces with structure and quirkiness–I like that Carine doesn’t shy away from pure sex appeal, so much so that it almost feels too much. Except, it doesn’t, just as her friend Tom Ford doesn’t cross that line (but comes mighty mighty close). Even better? In the issue, out on newsstands this fall, Lady Gaga chats with Karl Lagerfeld. Now that I have to read.
- This made me giggle in public.
Also, my sister and I have already decided that we’re seeing this together:
