Reading Roundup: From Internet addiction to blogger stereotypes

There was an interesting discussion on Yuli Ziv's post about Fashion Blogger Stereotypes. Did you know that believing you can be smarter can actually make you smarter? The next time you run into a stumbling block in your work, studies, or hobbies, remember your smarts aren't set in stone. This photo of Chris Brown and Jean Paul Gaultier is really, um...

I, Pad

In accordance with all the hype, earlier today I sat at my desk, anxiously clutching my empty wallet in anticipation of the revealing of the great and powerful Apple tablet. Feverishly updating a Twitter keyword search (which received no less than 200 new tweets every 5 seconds) and cursing whenever I lost audio from the livestream, I developed a somewhat comical system of refreshing no less than three simultaneous liveblogs of the event while retweeting ridiculous...

Black velvet if you please

Do you ever forget you own stuff? Sometimes I come across a blouse or a dress or a pair of shoes I forgot even existed, and a weird shameful/joyful feeling of discovery washes over me. On one hand, there's the "Woo-hoo, more clothes! It's like I went shopping!" feeling; on the other hand, I wonder why I get to have so much that I forget about it, when other people surely need more. Still trying...

I am not my hair. Or am I?

This weekend, I finally had the time and motivation to do something I haven't done in 5+ years: I (temporarily) straightened my hair. Part of the reason I haven't put hotcomb to hair strands in so long is that I never really felt the inclination. Okay, fine--I admit that being lazy busy had a lot to do with it, but my natural hair texture also felt more me. However, last weekend, curiosity got the best of...

This page is in French

I came across some old(er) photos while backing up my computer, which I'm supposed to do weekly but am more likely to do quarterly. Ah, well. The skirt and top are both thrift store finds--the skirt stood out because I'm always drawn to bold stripes, and little boy's oxford shirts are permanently on my "I need more of these" list. I picked up this sweater dress (again, while thrifting) because the embroidery reminded me of something Consuela...

Reading Roundup

Interesting reads I've come across on the web: Though not really surprised, I was FLOORED by the H&M Clothes Trashing report. Seriously? I know they're not exactly high priced items, but even if they were, is it really more cost-effective, and more importantly, environmentally ethical to destroy and dump bags of unused clothing?

Happy (sorta) New Year!

Hope everyone had a happy new year! Mine was spent in seclusion save a few sanity-preserving outings: NYE New Year's Eve was spent hunkered down on the couch, swathed in a Smurf-blue Snuggie with my computer on my lap. There was a very klassy orange juice and beer toast with FriendBoy at midnight before I got back to work and finally nodded off around 3am. How exciting! Quick tip: Do not try to use the bathroom while wearing...

We need a resolution

I don't do resolutions anymore. After years of failing to stick to the same ones (Exercise! Eat healthier! Save money! Travel!) I haven't given up per se, but let's just say I've moved on. However, this post from Chris Guillebeau prompted me to start looking seriously at setting--and planning to achieve--some goals. The first step is looking back at what happened this year--2009 was weird for a lot of people. I started Style Sample magazine, my...
