Weekly Roundup 9.22.12

September 22, 2012

I want to cover everything in chalkboard paint. Thanks to Alicia (and if I owned a fireplace!), this would be the latest. So cool!

I could eat avocados daily. Wait, I nearly do. If you love ‘em like me, this lightened-up guac dip seems like a must-make.

Does this post with cable-knit sweaters make you yearn for fall, or just moi? Ready to cozy up, STAT.

Every women should learn what she likes and what looks good on her. Here’s how to quickly use Pinterest to define her style.

Gold urchin in my finger? Amazingness. Check out this DIY by our fabulous, DIY contributor, Erin, of Thanks, I Made It.

Can someone come make these banana protein (gluten free) pancakes? Salivating after seeing Erika post on Instagram.

Bubble necklace for just $16 via Living Social? Yup, this girl ordered. Now, big decisions: color (grey, fuchsia or navy; help!).

These female comedians make me laugh, a lot. Thank you!

My favorite denims are just $19 in all hues! Lowest price I’ve ever seen. Order now, sizes selling O.U.T! (TAGG tip: free shipping with $50; I always add a few items in the cart, you can easily return!)

Weekly Roundup

September 1, 2012

In between trying on an insane amount of clothes for my upcoming trip to New York and keeping busy in the office, I got a bit of reading in online. Procrastination; it’s kind of the best. Here are my favorite reads from the week:

A DIY faux snakeskin table that actually looks pretty easy to accomplish. Most gorgeous thing ever.

This week I gave my hair a little side bun action, wondering if I looked chic or like I couldn’t do a straight bun. But apparently it’s a thing, and here’s a tutorial to do it way better than I did the first time.

A thoughtful read about being ‘blinded by the label,’ something I have a feeling many of us can relate to.

Been dying to make this healthy-ish, non-dairy ice cream for ages. A Beautiful Mess has me salivated — and motivated to take action! — with these photos. Oh, and, bloggers: they also have this great tutorial for how to make collages (can you tell I’m a fan of this site?!).

Yes, it’s Labor Day weekend. No, you don’t have to listen to the old rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day. Just edit out the summer style and add a cozy knit, a classic black + white style, and other warm tones. Here’s five ways to style white long after this weekend is over.

Interesting read how model Coco Roche is more than a size 0, faceless woman walking down the runway. Thank goodness. Check out how she’s creating a brand for self at an age that women are aging out of her industry. Yes, that’s 23.

PS: see my guest post on Trend Hungry? Sharing one of my favorite places to score a deal, Piperlime.

And, who’s shopping this Labor Day weekend? I’m in love with this from J. Crew Factory (select items are 40 percent off), and just bought this and this sequin amazingness from Express, where almost everything is 30 percent off.


Weekly Roundup

August 12, 2012

Like many of you, each week I read lots of great articles, blog posts, DIYs and how-to’s that help me live my best life. When reading blog posts, many of my favorites are ones similar to what you’re about to read — a compilation of my favorite reads from the week. Make me feel like I’m missing just a little bit less out there in the internet.

From the week:

TAGG’s DIY contributor, Erin, killed it with this awesome quasi leather wrap friendship bracelet that’s a totally easy DIY.

Did you know 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size? I’ve been considering a similar post but Victoria’s was so comprehensive and helpful you must read it. Really. read it. Chances are, you, yes YOU, are wearing the wrong size.

Check out five ways to wear a bold necklace on Megan’s blog (with yours truly demonstrated one of my looks).

When asked about our day, “good but busy” has become somewhat of an auto default response. Appreciate Sidney’s insights on this.  Think about how you value someone’s time? Why am I replying to an email to whoever when I only have a limited of time each evening to cuddle and play with my little girl? Continually important to evaluate what’s important.

The Huffington Post article nailed it with 12 questions to never ask a woman. You know I shared a post about stop asking questions as it relates to my baby challenges and many more women secretly (and sadly) deal with this as they continue to get barraged with questions that shouldn’t be asked in the first place.

Who wants to make me one of those cappuccino cocoa nib popsicles? For reals. I’m sweating here in f-l-a!

A few sales I’m all about this weekend: Target’s BOGO 1/2 denim sale (hello colored denim!), 40 percent off everything at LOFT through today (how cute is this light-weight sweater?) and 20 percent off at Old Navy (code: ONSCHOOL; this, this or this should be on your fall list!)
