  1. Friday Favourites: August 12

    Friday, August 12, 2011

    Here's a round-up of my favourite posts from around these tubes this week.

    First of all, I adore Cee Lo Green's video for his latest single, Cry Baby. Stephan Urkell! Cut, colour townhouses! Pretty Dresses! It's just wonderful. The music's not half-bad either.

    I love this bright blue sideboard featured on Apartment Therapy, in a post on how to add pops of colour to a tiled kitchen.

    Dakota of Sweetheart of the Rodeo had a fab post about collegiate style. It almost made me want to go back to school (almost).

    While I pretty much love anything Fleur de Guerre writes, her last few posts have been very poignant and resonated with me. Her latest post (at the time of this writing) was about how comfortable she is in her own skin and there's nothing I respect more than that.
    My message for the day is to love yourself not despite, but because of all your 'flaws'. But don't pander to them. If something about the way you look, or about your life is making you deeply unhappy, and you have the power to change it, then do. You don't have to be a workaholic high-flyer, but neither should anyone let themselves be a layabout with no ambition (for anything, work or life).

    I really enjoyed going through Retro Chick's tips to avoid beauty disasters in humidity. I'm guessing that our vacation in New York will be humid (I mean, it is a lot closer to the ocean than Alberta is) so I must remember to keep her tips handy and follow guidelines like putting my hair up and to avoid synthetics.

    I know there are a lot more blogs out there that I ought to share but I keep on forgetting to add them as I go. What are your favourite blogs - who should I be following?
