Lindz-terest: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
I don’t think I’ve done a Lindz-terest update since switching over to my new blog space, so it seemed about time. You never quite know when inspiration is going to strike, and I’ve actually been finding myself getting sick of my usual resources for interesting information. I used to be all about BuzzFeed, and it’s still the place where I am introduced to a lot of things (mainly because my feed is bombarded with every “article” that could literally ever exist about anything) but I just feel like I’m kind of getting sick the “21 things you’ve ever thought about this” or “48 times that animals ruled Tumblr” (I think that was an actual headline today… and yes, I read it and laughed, because how could you not). So lately, I’ve been trying to seek out alternate sources of internet entertainment, which believe it or not, is easier said than done. Here’s a few of what caught my eye this week:
#HotDudesReading: I feel like every week there is some witty Instagram account that pops up and I’m like omg omg follow follow follow. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about one since discovering Fashion Dads (which is the brainchild of one of my favorite bloggers), but Hot Dudes Reading has definitely slid into my top spot. Mainly because I enjoy anything that turns the tables and objectifies men instead of women. Seriously, how creepy would it be if there was a website where men sketchily take cell phone pics of women without their knowledge? (Oh wait, there is.) But for real, something about this is really sweet to me. I’m seriously just happy that there’s this many people still in the world that aren’t just staring at their iPhones. My favorite part? #NoKindles.
Art History’s Burn Book: You’ve seen them on Capitol Hill. You’ve seen them take on the French Revolution. But the best new Mean Girls parody account has to be Art History’s Burn Book. The simplicity of it is just brill – timeless works of art overlaid with the greatest words Tina Fey has ever written. And apparently it’s been around for like a year but I’m just arriving now to the party because of what else? BuzzFeed.
Grammys, Toddlewood Style: I’m sure I’ve posted about this before, but I’m kind of obsessed with this photographer Tricia Messeroux and what she does with these tots. I love seeing her kiddie interpretation of award show fashion a few days after the red carpet. Some people might think that this is the epitome of everything that is wrong with our society/a little reminiscent of JonBenét Ramsey (too soon?), but I find it to be hilarious. Everyone takes these award show fashions so seriously (including myself) and there’s something about a scowling mini-Kanye that kind of allows you to take a step back at it and remember that it’s all in fun. It also reminds me of Cameron on Modern Family when he dresses up baby Lily as music’s fiercest females for elaborate photoshoots in their home. Obviously that’s the kind of mother I would aspire to be. Um, she also birthday does parties. I know what I want to do for my 30th…
Origins Quarter Life Crisis Campaign: I was scrolling through one of the many social media emails I subscribe to, and this article about Origins new campaign immediately peaked my interest. Why? Because I am totally their target demographic here. My friends and I have been joking the past few years about how we’re still breaking out in our late twenties despite serving our time as awkward pimple-faced teens. Turns out, we’re not the only ones, and the company is capitalizing on our vulnerability in a real and kind of amusing way with a “global, integrated, digital campaign developed by Estée Lauder’s own millennial employees, aimed at 20-somethings to help them address the early signs of skin aging.” There’s even an app for that. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I know I have seen a definite shift in my skin since I hit the second half of my twenties, and this is the first time that I can think of any major cosmetics line saying that they get that. I don’t know what kind of Mad (wo)Men they have behind this, but I can tell you they’ve got me hooked.
Read anything interesting online lately? Or are cat videos still all the rage? Let me know your thoughts in the comments. I’m always looking for new inspiration/procrastination resources.
