Things I Love Tuesday

It feels so great now that our busiest week at work is over with. Also- we only have about two and a half weeks of classes left! ahh! I know I have two small papers and one large museum paper to write, a project on predicting the future of the stock market (what? this'll be interesting) and a final animation to finish (I'm actually really excited about this. Maybe I'll post a sneak peek later this week?) Anyway, I thought I'd share a few things I've been really digging this week. (I'm just so cool, with my 90's slang and all.)

New music!
I was bumming around on YouTube the other day and I decided to keep clicking on all those "similar" videos on the side bar and I stumbled upon a couple of really great songs (and some I really didn't care for at all)

And I thought this video was pretty funny. The faces these girls make are hysterical.

Mint Jeans!
So I bought a pair of coral skinny jeans from Forever 21, and I just love them. I wanted to get a pair in mint green, but now they took them off the website! I mean, c'mon! Why take your best selling product off your site completely! And they don't have any other colored jeans either. I'm also too cheap to spend more than $25 on a pair.

Now I'm really excited because I found a simple DIY on Pretty Providence on how to make your own mint green skinny jeans. Girls, you just got an instant follow from me. Hahaha!

Blood Oranges
I love blood oranges! I'm not much of an orange eater, but I could eat blood oranges everyday! I love the deep red color inside, the less acidic taste and the fact that they're full of antioxidants, vitamin C, 28% of your day's fiber! (I guess that goes for all oranges too, hahaha whatevs.) The site I got this picture from has a recipe for an awesome looking Blood Orange Yogurt Cake. I think I might have to make that sometime! Pretty dresses made out of coffee filters, old photographs and books! 
Like I mentioned earlier, this weekend was Fashion Without Fabric. I was up in the tech booth working the show, so I got to see all the outfits. These were my favorites! (Some of them were really weird and some of the themes were over done. There were about five different gambling ones and about five other ones about drugs and alcohol.)

Vintage advertisements!
Yesterday we looked at vintage Life magazines in History of Design and we have to write a paper about one of them. It was great. I'm writing about a Kellogg's Corn Flakes ad from 1943. I'm actually pretty excited. This whole section on Populuxe is just the best, even if my professor things the huge fins on the cars and all the pastel colored refrigerators are tacky.
As you can see, the food ads are my favorite!

 Hot Dr. Pepper? Um? What? This one reminds me of this video:

Alright, I'm going to get ready for the day! Farewell!

    1. Thank you! :) Yours is great as well!

  2. Girl, I love the vintage advertisements! I've secretly wanted to start a collection of them. And by secretly I mean very openly.
