Trend: Macrame

So as I've been faithfully reporting, the fashion gods have decided that we need 70s shit, so here it comes. Also I actually had some time to head to a few fast-fashion stores and noticed 1) damn, the 70s shit is here and 2) my 2014 trend prediction of unusual hair accessories doesn't seem to be a 2014 trend, but a 2015 trend. Maybe I'm so great at trend predictions, i'm TWO years ahead, baby. But that's another post for later.

So yeah, I saw a large amount of macrame stuff (a craft style that's based on knot-tying) at the stores. I feel like a few years ago that meant the trend is already over, but since those stores knock off runway fashion so quickly and efficiently, maybe it'll stay around.

Industrial Piercings

Since posting my recent industrial earring haul, I thought I'd share my experience about getting this piercing done. In the UK/Australia, apparently this piercing isn't called an industrial, it's called a scaffold piercing.
I've got a traditional shape

Random Things About Me

The Liebster award is back! I'm excited that Bien AimeĆ© nominated me...her blog is amazing. Her posts are relevant, thoughtful, informative, and she's an amazing artist too. I wish my own blog could have as much poise as hers. I'm always excited when one of her posts appears on my feed. 

I kind of like that she started with the questions first, so I'm doing that too.

The rules: 

1. Post the award on your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
3. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have fewer than 200 followers.
5. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

Makeup Apps

By this point, most of us can spot a photo that's been photoshopped, but lately I've been seeing photos that are obviously manipulated--but was it our friend Photo Shop, or is it something else? 

The two photos below (photos are from we heart it...who knows where they were from originally) inspired me to start looking for something easier-to-use than Photo Shop (though I haven't used it since CS3). Makeup apps, I thought.
good way to hide photoshop is to rotate the photo to mess with perspective
