All The Single Ladies: Super long, but oh so good!
The Agony & Ecstasy of Shopping (on a Budget): I’m not sure I’ll ever tire of the finance + fashion topic. The shopaholic lifestyle seems to be a rite of passage for a lot of young women. Yeah, it’s a first world problem, and no it’s not the most important problem we face. But it’s pretty scary that no one learns how credit cards work in school and advertising shows us young people who have it all and thus we thing we deserve it all too. As a style blogger, I’m always interested in what’s new, what’s happening in fashion, and what people are buying.
Mangled, Mashed, & Mutilated: The Fate of Model’s Feet on the Runway: Amazing! And gross. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this before, but I can forgive models wearing the shoes on a runway more than a person who buys shoes that fit that way!’
Self Love + Weight Loss is a great article that I relate to SO much. Mara says, Here’s the thing: I do feel gorgeous. I do feel perfect. I do love myself. It’s just that, for the first time in my life, I am understanding that sometimes loving yourself means wrangling yourself in when you’ve spiraled out of control. I understand that loving myself means, taking care of the only body that I’ll be given – it means speaking my truth, but it also means living my truth.
