I Am Packed is a website showcasing the many (or surprisingly few) necessities needed for a vacation. I don't think anyone actually likes packing for trips, but this site makes me want to pack a suitcase for the pure sake of a good picture (also the various locations are making me wanderlust-y).
Whenever I hear people speaking in a different language, I often think about how beautiful it sounds (French, Spanish, Italian) or how interesting and complicated (Chinese, Thai, Arabic). Which then leads me to think about how ugly and flat I find English. Especially American English. So I've always wonderdered, how does English sound to non-Engish speakers?
Well, here's a short video called Skewl that tries to show just that. I'd say it seems pretty accurate. Sadly, it only confirms my thoughts on the language.
Away from loved ones this Valentine's day? Why not send them some love in the mail! Oh Happy Day! has a simple tutorial for these adorable Mailable Valentine Garlands. Just cut up some letters, string them, and post!
P.S. A new year's resolution I just decided on is doing more of my own DIY's on weekends. There's a whole world of arts and crafts projects out there and I need to get my hands dirty more often.
Fun Fact: St. Louis has the second biggest Mardi Gras celebrations in the world. WOO! So to accompany such an event, I decided to try out my new Mily Makeup Simply Liners eyeliner stickers, both the winged purple liner and the more eccentric ones, paired with a jeweled bindi sticker and some gold leaf.
I was worried they would feel stiff and uncomfortable but surprisingly once they were on I couldn't feel a thing! I didn't have to worry about smudging or rubbing off, and at the end of the day I peeled them off and set them aside for another day. I would highly recommend them- I received many a compliment from my fellow Mardi-Gras-ers.
DJ Charizard and I had our second radio show of the semester today!

My favorite song was a new release from the band Social Studies off their album Developer. We were totally digging it and it turns out I like every song from their album. Kind of dark and pulse-y.
Stumbled upon Block Shop and instantly fell in love with not only their beautiful block prints but also the fascinating process behind the textiles. Then I saw that, because they are such a hot topic at the moment, everything is sold out. womp womp.
