If you haven't had the chance to pick up the latest issue of DISfunkshion Magazine make sure you do so stat! I've written a killer article on the super inspiring Stephanie Schechter. On top of that, this issue is packed with amazing lookbooks, and tons of other articles on equally inspiring women. If you're interested you can pick up a copy at your local Barnes and Noble January 10th or order a subscription at the DISfunkshion website.
Just some shots from this morning. I got the day off so I decided to start off 2014 with a hot cup of tea and a fashion magazine. I decided to kick off the new year with Grazia Magazine. If I'm remembering correctly I think I picked up the issue when I was in Thailand. I know it's weird, but I generally keep the magazines I find to be really inspiring. The majority of them are foreign, but I've got a few good American magazines as well. Oh and if you're curious about my beautiful blanket, I made it myself out of vintage fabricsI found in a Louisiana thrift store. I'll have to put up a DIY on it one of these days... Oh well, hope you all have a fantastic start to your day! :)
As the year draws to a close I've made my Top Songs of 2013 playlist. The playlist comprises of top hits on the radio, new artists, and songs that influenced pop culture. There is a total of 80 songs and I hope you have fun listening to it. I had a blast making it, although it was hard to narrow down the top songs. The genres comprise of Pop, Rap, EDM, Alternative, and a little Country and Rock. Happy New Year's Eve!
Here's a collage I made over the weekend. It's right over my bed, and it was so much fun to work on. I always love to work with mixed media when I'm making a new piece so collaging came pretty naturally to me. If this is your first time don't be scared! I'm positive you can collage too :)
In order to start make sure you gather your supplies: magazines, cards, photo's, ticket stubs, stickers and tape or glue. If you want to add other items you're more than welcome! Once you have these items all you have to do is put together your masterpiece. You literally can't mess up because it's your creation! I find it's easiest to place all of my items before gluing or taping them on. That way I can be sure of where they should be. If you're really unsure use tape so you can change up your layout later on. I also used push pins for this project since it's hanging up on my wall. Check out the close up picture! These push pins look just like a little dachshund!
Below are close shots of my collage in case you can't see the items in the picture above. I hope this gets you started. Happy crafting!
So, I've never done a food review but the minute I brought this Talenti gelato home from Kroger I had a feeling I was going to have to. The only reason I picked it up was because it was on sale, for a whopping $3.99 but the packaging and promise of a gelato treat looked good enough so I made the purchase. I hadn't had gelato since I was in France, and I had my fingers crossed that this little plastic container would match their standards.
I opned the container and let my spoon glode over the gelato as I collected my first bite. The mintue it hit my tounge I was in absolute heaven. This stuff was almost identical to the heaven I had tasted in France. In addition to it having little truffles in it! Oh my goodness it was so good! I ate it straight from the carton, I mean I know it's taboo and all but the packaging practically invites you to do so. And I'm only human right? Naturally I didn't eat it all, but I put a pretty good dent into it. I didn't feel too badly because gelato typically has 30-50% less fat than ice cream, so I'll eat as much as I damn well please.
I did some research on the company after I came down from sugar high heaven and I learned that Talenti has roots in Argentina, it's not Italian like I had orginally thought. The companys founder, Josh Horchschuler ditched his career in banking in order to follow his dream of full time gelato making.
I admire people that follow their dreams, and I thank him for bringing amazing tasting gelato to the states. Ugh. What ever would we do without good tasting food? I can't even imagine. Life would be so boring.
