I may or may not be a little bit in love with Joanna Goddard this week, but that’s beside the point. These hair tutorials are everything I want out of a different ‘do: they look casual, yet chic; they’re simple, yet elegant. The collection is curated well, with styles for loads of different occasions. My favorites? The top knot and the chestnut bun. I’m a bit old fashioned, ya think? What would you try?
I’m so struck by this style–by the stark contrast of her pale skin and white hair, vibrant matte lip, thick cat eye eyeliner, and, of course, the nose rings. Is she wearing a harness? Is that a thin camera strap around her neck? And why am I so obsessed with this girl? She’s a sweet Swedish milkmaid who got caught up in the CBGB’s crowd in the late 70s. Is she dating the drummer from the Cramps? I think I saw them together at that little Chinese place in the Bowery.
I don’t know if there’s much I can (or should) really say about this other than.. bahahahahahahahahahhaa. I die. Every time you need a bit of a boost, watch this. Unless you hate the Simpsons, in which case, I don’t like you either.
You would think by this title that this snippet really just leads to a Playgirl spread of Ryan Lochte, but I’ve got more depth than that these days. If these photos won’t make you want to have children, I don’t know what will. They’re on mute, sweetly sleeping or laughing, being silly, jumping on the bed. They bring you flowers, and your baby daddy makes you breakfast. If this is motherhood, sign me up. But don’t tell me they eventually cry and poop all the time and eat the flowers they brought you like cats. That would just ruin the fairytale.
Did Happy just arrive at Netflix? Perhaps, but the documentary all about what makes us happy is making its rounds in the blogosphere. Joanna Goddard wrote Happy up in her list of documentaries two weeks ago, and Emily Schuman from Cupcakes and Cashmere covered it last week. Yet Jo took it a step further, in an effort to start a game of sorts, presenting a different challenge each week to help us all discover ourselves, separately and together, and what we love to do. Genius? Or just human?
