Hey lovelies! I haven’t done one of these posts in quite a while–I’ve been super-busy this month, it seems–but I wanted to share some of the blog posts I’ve been loving lately.
RainySunRayNails has a look at the full Essense Floral Grunge polish collection. Logical Harmony talks vegan nail polish. Shoes, Sushi and Spare Change is looking ahead to fall with five cruelty-free picks for wine-colored lippies. MakeUp Guinea Pig has a review of the new Tarte Amazonian Clay powder foundation that promises to give you full, airbrushed coverage–not typical for a powder formula! And ElleSees has a great DIY for coconut lime sugar scrub.
TheInsideOutBeauty has a post on the fear of failure and how it can ultimately motivate you to become more successful. I recommend taking the twenty minutes to watch the video at the end, which is J.K. Rowling’s commencement speech from Harvard in 2008. Blair’s Head Band shared a great quote from Ricky Gervais that I, personally, needed to hear today. And Dancing Branflakes shared a quick post about turning 30 and realizing it’s okay to not be quite where you thought you would be at that time. I think people, and we women especially, put a lot of pressure on ourselves to meet certain goals by certain birthdays and letting go of that can be quite freeing.
Finally, if you want a little bit of humor: Green Eyed Monster shared the creepiest ever vintage shampoo commercial. It has a funny animated GIF of a pug, too, to take the edge off.
