It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of coffee, coffee, coffee! At least once a week, I’ll treat myself to a latte from our local coffee house, The Naked Lounge. They make the most amazing drinks, and I’m always dazzled by the gorgeous art work for each cup (one of my favorites is pictured above). Curious, I searched around on youtube and found this great little video. Now I’m really inspired to try it myself, especially with the chocolate sauce, yum! Any baristas out there who know more about coffee art?
It’s always around this time of year (hot hot summer) that I realize my serious lack of cute tank tops and start to panic. That’s why I’m so glad I found this awesome tutorial from the crafty itzblitzzz on YouTube. She has an easy, simple layout for constructing a racerback out of any old t-shirt. So check it out, dig up one of those baggy shirts you never wear, and turn it into a whole new look.
When I was living in NYC, I happened upon an exhibit featuring an eccentric fashion icon named Iris Apfel. The exhibit was called Rare Bird, a title that only begins to describe the collection of clothes that were on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I became enamored with Iris — along with half of New York City, I presume — and was recently thinking back on the experience with awe. Then the other day, I found this GREAT video of Iris being interviewed and filmed while shopping.
My favorite thing about Iris Apfel is that she views fashion with so much energy and shows no fear in doing what she wants with it!
I am in love with the seemingly effortless glamour and flirty waves of Dita Von Teese’s hair style in the above pic. Inspired by hair of the 1940’s, Dita has perfected this look on her own, which in turn, inspired me to give it a try.
Dita recently tweeted on her Twitter page that she uses “Hot rollers in small+med sizes,” and sometimes “iron+clips” in order to set her hair into retro glam waves. I found the perfect YouTube tutorial which goes over how to style and set the rollers to achieve a similar look.
Now all I need are some good hot rollers. Any suggestions?
