Links for the weekend, three.


The Art of Yao Xiao

A Russian Navy… cat. =^.^=

The Ultimate Skincare Ingredients Guide.

The NARS Orgasm Collection. I still haven’t tried the original blusher. It’s been on my wish list for ages.

American Malls Are Closing: How Retail Changed (And I Did Too). Referenced articles are a good read as well.

Nipples Are the Secret to the Perfect Lipstick Shade?

It has however been reported that using such method is less complimentary, if your complexion happens to be extremely pale or deep; as I said it isn’t exactly a highly researched topic; most likely homeboy wanted his name in the press and happened to be a boob man.

How to Generate Ideas for Your Blog. Actually a post with unique techniques for once.

6 Tricks That Will Speed Up Your Metabolism is one of those ‘yeah, I knew all that…’ posts but is a great refresher.

This Is How to Find Out If You Are Sleep Deprived. Back in drama school days I’ve actually been introduced to a similar technique – but with the purpose of staying awake just a bit longer. You’d sit on a chair or lie on a sofa with your hand over the floor, holding an object that would make a significant amount of noise when falling down from your hand – like a bunch of keys or a metal mug. You’d allow yourself to fall asleep, which would mean that you’d let go of the object, and the sound of it falling will wake you up. There, some more time won against the Oneiroi.

How to Describe Fragrance.

My Family’s Slave – a story of slavery in modern America.

Classical art with FaceApp smiles. I never knew I needed this in my life.

Five Foolproof Bronzers for Fair Skin.

This is the last time I post a link round-up on the blog. All the future ones will be sent out through my newsletter. Subscribe here!

Links for the weekend, two

Hello, hello! The most boring day on the internet strikes again.

Instagram Shadowbanning 411

Actually, just Sharmtoaster blog in full. It’s a recent addition to my feed, and I really like it.

How to wear yellow eyeshadow.

One skirt, three ways.

My decision to ban (or, let’s face it: dramatically cut) beauty purchases led to my exploring the panning community a bit deeper. So far, the channel that stood out for me the most was PrettyPistol86.

The High Street Spring Lipstick Collection.

Some new additions to my Instagram feed: emiremarque (love the books paired with the girly aesthetic); te_bessum (knitting and books); ekinik (also take a look at the site); addymanbooks (books and breakfasts of a bookseller that is far, far away from me); photographycuba (my long standing dream is to travel there). Last but not least: after much persuasion, my friend finally started a bookstagram. Follow her here!

Links for the weekend, one.

Welcome! to another installment of Things I Found on the Internet.

The Instagram account of melani_koni. If you like books, flowers, cats, and mugs of hot drinks, then you’re bound to love the aesthetic. The words are in Turkish, and while I’m sure it would add to the picture had I spoken the language, the lack of my understanding certainly doesn’t take anything away.

These Korean nail trends are going to be huge in 2017, according to Byrdie UK.

What else? This is the reason my link list will never be weekly. I came to this many years ago, back when my blog was still called ‘something neutral’, but Alexandra Franzen puts it into words that make sense.

On the difference between professionals and amateurs and on the power of average speed.

The article is called Surprising Stats, but I’d call them scary. All the time and money we waste, because we couldn’t just put our bills and keys in one place.

Midnight Modern.

On Politics, Silence & Speaking Your Mind.

Find what you love, and let it kill you.

10 signs you were once obsessed with LiveJournal. Y so true tho.

Period Poverty. Just read it.

Ask ITG about pore reduction, and while you’re there: read about hang-over face fixes as well. Both quite relevant, if I do say so myself.

Every exfoliant worth its weight in outlawed microbeads promises to “reduce the appearance of pore size,” but that doesn’t make sense. Imagine hiring an assassin to murder your ex Greg, but instead, all the assassin can do is “reduce the appearance of Greg” in your life.
