// The Period Panties Kickstarter went viral on places like Tumblr and they're already 1600% funded after less than a week. But don't let that stop you from checking these out. For just $12 you can get your own pair of rad knickers. Seriously, Shark Week?! Want!

// If you're looking for fun, fashionable blogs to add to your reader, pop over to BeauCoo and scout some of the recent posts! I've found so many fab bloggers through BeauCoo. It's not just curvy gals either! All kinds of body types kicking it over there :D

// If you're not super huge on Valentine's Day, Carrie Ann shared her Anti-Valentines Playlist!

// Aside from a jaunt to Lake Tahoe years ago, I've never seen more than an inch or two of snow in my life. These pictures are absolutely beautiful! Now I totally get why Mike has always wanted to spend time in Colorado!

// Successful people start before they're ready. Loved this article so much! I definitely want to learn more about Richard Branson, too.

// I recently got this necklace in the mail and I'm trying to resist the urge to wear it with everything! 

// Tennessee senator introduces "Turn Gays Away" bill... yeah, like, as in deny them services because they're gay. Ugh! (I know you can deny anyone a private service simply because you "Don't want to serve them" but this would allow business owners to say your lifestyle disgusts them and/or goes against their religion.)

// Unpopular opinion: I don't think everyone should try to go to college. On the flip side: Going to college may cost you, but so will skipping it. My thoughts: College isn't for everyone. There are pros and cons to each choice and it's up to the individual to decipher what makes the most sense for her. I'm glad I went to college, but I can absolutely understand why some people would feel it's not for them.

// 25 life lessons. I think I might be inspired to write a post like this of my own!

What are you loving this week?


  1. I love the Stella street art! Reminds me a little of Miss Van.

    The college question is one I've been thinking about a lot lately. College helped me develop my critical thinking skills and expanded my world view, for which I am eternally grateful. I wouldn't trade my experience for the world because it helped me grow a lot as a person. But it doesn't do that for everyone, and there are some people who are self-motivated and intellectually curious enough that they either don't need the push or can achieve the same results in other, non-academic venues.

    With that said, I think most people need the push that formal education provides. It's also hard to get a professional office-type job without a degree these days, which is why, despite my feelings on the student debt crisis (and it is an economic crisis for my generation), I have a hard time advising the young people I know *not* to go to college. As you said, I think it really depends on the individual person, and needs to take into account their professional aspirations, financial situation, personality and talents, etc.

  2. Amy Winehouse has a Bacon Number of 3 and so does Prince Harry!
    It took me forever to realize I had to search across the pond :P

  3. I LOL'd so hard at the Seth Green & Conan googly eye thing! I am one of those people that carries around a small pouch of them because they are harmless fun and guarantee laughs.

    I live in Iowa so I often forget that there are many people who don't experience snow all winter every winter like I do. As I type there is about 12 inches piled up from the last few weeks in our front yard. It's beautiful when it first falls but looses it's charm pretty quick. :)

  4. The tweet is so true. It kind of took me back. Lovely post btw.

    Lovely blog
    With Love,

  5. THOSE PERIOD PANTIES DOE. Need 'em need 'em need 'em buyin' 'em!

    When it comes to college-- I'm 100,000% glad I did not go. I will end up going, and soon, because now I know what it is that I really want to do. If I had gone when I was a dumb turd right out of high school, It most likely would have been a $40,000 piece of paper for me. Not everyone is a dumb turd right out of high school, but I certainly was and was in no position to make such an expensive choice. And wasn't mature enough to work as hard as I needed to. Not to mention, people like to crap all over skilled trade jobs (which often don't require college), but those are valid, needed, and often quite high-paying jobs as well.

    Anyway, I've ranted too hard (perhaps being judged one-too-many times will do that)

    PS -- Those cookies! <3

  6. Thanks for always having your Things I love thursdays-I look forward to reading them every week :) I am loving finding gluten free recipes to try! After dragging my feet for a year, it's time to get to baking. Here's what I'm trying first:

    I'm ambitious! ;) Have a great weekend!

  7. those "bleeder of the pack" panties are incredible! and i think that rupaul advice is golden. this is one of the best tilts yet <3

  8. Woohoo! Starchild Stela, my favorite local (Montreal, Canada) street artist, made your list! It's always nice to come across her graffiti or stickers while strolling through the city :)

  9. I'd love to live in that tiny house, it looks so cosy right?!

  10. You guys should totally come to Colorado!! It truly is gorgeous especially when it snows.

  11. I love the murals! Have you seen the murals (forgot where in the world they are exactly) where the painters turned around and painted what they saw? The murals on the side of a building and you can see what was going on there like years and years ago. It's amazing!

  12. Love everything! Especially the links about college. I wish I had waited instead of going for an easy major just because I was being pushed to go and now two years later changing my major and going in the completely opposite direction.

  13. Hahahahaha I LOVED that episode of Conan! Isn't it great that just throwing on some funny eyeballs and acting silly can be THAT funny!? If you haven't seen the new interview he did with Aubrey Plaza check it out-that girl is soooo funny!

  14. These are all great! Woo! Happy Thursday!

  15. Really fun post, and I love that Waldo picture!


  16. If you and the Flynn family come to visit Colorado, do so in Grand Junction first? That's where I live and its AWESOME during the winter time.

  17. Amazing as usual! Love these posts so much!
