Featured Blogs | …And the holidays are upon us!

14 Dec

Yeah, two weeks since my last post but what can I say? This time of year gets busy and all our creative energy must go towards thinking of what everybody we love could possibly desire most of all… in the $30-and-under category! Hours and hours and hours looking for inspiration on design blogs and Etsy and cute online zines… And then devising a design/wrapping plan, and then actually WRAPPING… And 27 batches of too-hard lavender caramels later… Well, here we are.

But because you’re awesome and still bothering to read my little blog, I’m going to give you a bunch of links to take over YOUR free time. You’re welcome.

Without further ado, here’s the pages I’ve been obsessed with for the past few weeks… If you need a break from Christmas stuff, just one little clicky-click and you’re in a world of cute-and-awesome. May they bring you as much joy etc etc…

1. Into The Gloss If you’re weird like me and capable of becoming product-obsessed, you’ve been warned. I read one post… and then I went through the archives and read them ALL. Really. Now I can converse with style and beauty editors at ease about such things as La Roche Posay and NARS and Cle de Peau

2. Anthology Magazine Oh man, this zine is awesome. Their webpage is also addictive. Cute and easy DIY Projects! Interesting baking endeavors! Gorgeous design inspirations! Neon Christmas color schemes! Augh!

3. She Lets Her Hair Down Just… wow. Hairstyles, products, techniques, tips, stories from the pros… You will get lost in the glamorous world of HAIR and don’t be surprised if you end your session by googling Bumble and Bumble Hair School at the end of it all. Just sayin’. (I also googled “French immersion classes” and “Dede Barrymore Bob” for like a million hours.)

4. Tiger in a Jar The coolest little indie videos _ever_ . The one about beet cake – genius.

5. Making It Lovely Just some cool chick with a cute blog… that I’m totally obsessed with. She owns a stationery business, her blog was named one of 50 World’s Best Design Blogs by the London Times Online,  her work’s been featured in a million publications… You get the idea. She’s cool. We want to be her.

6. A Beautiful Mess Oh, Elsie Larson. Your blog is the cutest and I love your little shop and all the little cute projects. Also, your hair will be mine one day.

7. The Dainty Squid Another cute chick, but with blue hair, who just posts a bajillion awesome photos all the time. No blahblahblah I’m awesomer than you, just pics. This site is a pinner’s dream.

So there’s a little holiday season distraction for you… Happy Yuletide!
