Welcome to another Friday! This week seemed really long for some reason and I’m glad to move on to the weekend and more fun things. My family is going on our annual long-weekend city trip and I’m so excited! I hope you have lots of great plans for this weekend, including some Olympic watching! :)
Happy link love!
Many people, myself included, fall into self consciousness, comparison and self-criticism, especially now that social media always gives us an easy way to compare ourselves to those on the screen. I love this post about practicing self-love and growing your self-confidence by remembering to love who we are, and not envy what others look like or the unrealistic goals we set for ourselves.
On a similar encouraging note, dream big and dream often.
As you have probably heard, Instagram changed again (though I think they still need to work on another new logo) and ripped off, I mean added “stories,” feature, oddly similar to rival social media app, Snapchat. Like a lot of people, I’m still not sure about it, and until they get cute voice filters, I don’t know if I’m going to love it. I love both Snapchat and Instagram, but for different reasons and different uses. I like some parts of it, and agree it is more polished than Snapchat, but really don’t want to see the behind the scenes of every person I follow on Instagram. It’s just overwhelming and there are too many to look through!
I know I say this for lots and lots of cookbooks, but I’m so excited for this cookbook to come out, mainly because it is a really cool concept. Molly from My Name is Yeh is creating this cookbook from her favorite foods and her life story. I’m excited for the recipes, but just as excited to read the stories!
Zara’s new ballet collection of gym clothes is amazing! I don’t know how anyone could wear them to the gym, but they look gorgeous enough to wear outside of the gym!
I have been looking at a lot of Ikea hacks lately, trying to figure out cheap but nice ways to decorate, and came across this commercial they came out with about what food Instagrams would have looked like in the 18th century. So funny.
