Friday, July 8, 2011My motivation has been in the tank lately (poo poo!) and since it is Friday it's going to be on an extended vacation, so I'm going to do a round-up of my favourite blog posts and articles from this week. (Sorry for the lack of images, but I didn't want to steal photos from anyone!)
♥♥♥Timely as ever, Retro-Chick posted about motivation - or lack there of - and some very good tips on getting it back. Clearly I need to re-read them. Like her, I've been feeling a bit meh lately - and I can't even blame it on the weather!
♥♥♥Fleur de Guerre, vintage gal extraordinaire, wrote about being glamorous and some tips for perking yourself up when you're feeling a bit low.
♥♥♥ReeRee Rockette mused about the names we give our vaginas and the tabboo behind even talking about them.
♥♥♥Annie Pancake put her lovely dressing table on display and gave fantastic tips for organizing make-up and hair accessories with a vintage flair.
♥♥♥Ana from Snowangels showed off her lovely vintage bicycle collection, all with names inspired by friendly fowl.
♥♥♥How To Be A Retronaut showed hauntingly-dystopian photos of the Mothballed Fleet, which are naval and merchant ships abandoned in a bay near San Francisco.
♥♥♥Lina Sofia wrote about some 1930s fashion history and what to wear when it comes to 1930s evening, day and bridal wear as well as 1930s couture, leisure and day wear. She also wrote about vintage insecurity, a topic that I can identify with.
♥♥♥I'm surprised that I was interested in the Royal Tour of Canada, but let's face it, Kate looked fantastic. I loved her nude pumps, the yellow dress that almost got away from her in Calgary, and a little knit number that looked positively 30s on her frame. I am also shocked at how great their Highnesses look in their cowboy gear. Hell, Will could almost be a dead-ringer for a Smith boy, one of my Southern-Albertan ranching cousins.
♥♥♥Well, that's all for now lovilies. I'm off to the homeland for the Little Valley Jamboree tomorrow, so I'm sure I will have plenty to post about when I come home. Toodles!
