6 things I’m obsessed with right now
It’s Monday night, soon to be Tuesday and I’m eating peppermint candies, drinking apple chai tea, and going through a list of things I “urgently needed to blog about” last week. If only I had an entire editorial team for my personal blog and I could just send them links and guidelines. Alas, this is where list & link posts come in handy.
Here are 6 things I’m obsessed with right now:
1. MIA’s new video, “Bad Girls”.
And seriously, “journalists”? Is it necessary to have thousands of write-up’s on news websites about MIA’s middle finger during the super bowl half-time show, complete with a quirky recount of “infamous middle fingers and misbehaving celebs”? Isn’t there some other urgent thing going on in the world to write about?
Anyway, let’s just watch her video. Controversy over her authenticity aside, she has style like no one else.
2. Nasty Gal‘s fruity sorbet palette of newly added styles for spring. I’ve never really been so emotionally attached and addicted to a retail site before, from their lookbooks to their product styling to their social media updates. ♡
3. Kimberly Snyder‘s health & food blog. Get addicted to this. Because of her, I am doing the daily green smoothie thing again (feels so amazing, immediate difference in energy levels and mood) and making a lot of changes in my diet that didn’t occur to me before.
5. Julietta of Maffashion, my favorite blogger of the moment. How pretty is this girl? I love how original her content is, not 5-10 photos of the same outfit with a slightly varied post over and over. Refreshing & beautiful.
