What are you loving this week?


  1. Fantastic bits and pieces, great post!

  2. I love Bill Nye! Not quite enough to get a tattoo though

    Water Painted Dreams

  3. I wore that anchor dress to my rehearsal dinner! I got so many compliments.

  4. That makeup experiment post is so interesting... thanks for sharing! Definitely makes me do a double take on what society deems as "natural beauty".


  5. Your TiLT posts are my favorite blog posts. You always find the neatest things.

  6. Love the emergency remedies - I totally need to try to add fabric softener to my conditioner!

    Have a great day,

  7. You always have the best picks! I love the makeup social experiment, and aaaawwwwwl of those dresses from ModCloth are on my wishlist! I'm addicted to xojane!

  8. Oh my god that switcheroo project might be the best thign ever! They're brilliant!
    Happy Thursday Kaelah

  9. I'm curious about what you loved about XOJane's Sex-Negative Feminist article. As a sex educator, I found it troubling. I would be interested in hearing a different perspective, and I do value your opinions.

    1. I often feature things in my TiLT post that are somewhat unconventional and maybe even controversial, not because I agree with the opinion stated, or because I "loved" what the author said, but because it's a different perspective. It's commentary on something most people would never write/say/feel (generally speaking). I agree that from a personal perspective (my own) that the article was/could be "troubling", but I don't think that's a reason to leave it out of the discussion. Does that make sense? Things I "Love" Thursday can often be a misleading title as I don't really just stop there, but I try to engage in the conversation about a variety of topics and perspectives! Simply because an opinion (the author's) is unpopular, doesn't mean it should be ignored. I originally shared the article based on the comments (I probably shouldn't elaborated behind the link!) as the comment section of XOJane almost always offers a debate/good read :) Hope that answers your question!

  10. Your picks are always so good! How long does it take to combine your finds (do you usually just randomly spot these things...?)

    I'm especially in love with this playsuit: http://www.oasis-stores.com/fan-flower-playsuit/jumpsuits/oasis/fcp-product/4420001368 at the moment :)

  11. Love the bit about the make-up social experiment and recently favorited the picture of the sting rays on Tumblr! Such awesome finds!

  12. Since I know you love all things Ron Swanson, this picture popped up on my Facebook Newsfeed from the Parks and Rec page and I just had to show it to you! https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/p480x480/946237_10152059530842598_360886827_n.jpg

  13. The Bill Nye tattoo is effin' awesome. Fun ideas like that make me happy. Also, how amazing is that stingray picture?! Soooo cool. I wanna do that and be there! The nautical bathroom is REALLY cute. I love that idea, but I feel like we need to be near water to even think about doing that. Too bad. AND, I signed the petition. That made my heart hurt.. those poor animals. :(

  14. That commercial was adorable! I'm also in love with the Bill Nye tattoo.
