Some Things I Love

Hello, possums! I know I've been a bad blogger for the past few weeks. My absence can be explained by a number of things, most of which are boring. Now I'm back to my regularly scheduled internet narcissism! Yay! To start, I've made you a list of some of the silly things that I enjoy right now.

1: Polyvore
I've seen tons of bloggers make polyvore sets before, but I never tried it myself until very recently. It's ridiculously fun and strangely satisfying and it makes me want to cry when I think about how much time I've spent on it. It's also an excellent way to get out of an inspiration rut, because you have literally all the clothes on the internet at your disposal. You can make any outfit you want. It's magical. Here are the sets I've made so far.





2: Joanna Newsom
 I dig this harp-playing squeaky-voiced maiden. I dig her a lot. When I first heard her voice I was turned off by it, but for whatever reason I was compelled to keep listening and soon I was hooked. She is a fantastic musician and lyricist with a unique voice that really grew on me. Her sound is so sweet and ethereal! Additionally, she is beautiful and has great style.







Also: add "harp" to the list of instruments I want to play.It's probably the most beautiful instrument ever.

3: Spirit Bears 


I read an article in National Geographic last summer about these bears that live in the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia and immediately became obsessed. They're a species of black bear that for some reason have a recessive gene that makes some of them white. I think they're the most beautiful creatures ever! I recently did a project on them that made me fall in love all over again. I could just stare at these pictures forever! The fact that they live in a deep green moss-covered rainforest just makes the pictures all the more beautiful. I want to go live there and make some bear friends.



4: Tacky unicorns

I stumbled across the site unicornlady.net the other day, and it rules. It's as sketchy as it is hilarious. Beware, music automatically starts playing when you click the link. I personally think it adds to the experience. The awesome part is that it has a gallery of unicorn pictures to be used as wallpapers for your desktop. I love them. Behold:


 


As much as I laugh at the source, I have a completely non-ironic love of kitschy unicorn pictures. Especially the first one.

5: Excessive flowers
It's no secret that I love flowery things, since I wear them in pretty much every outfit.These are some of my favorite flower-filled images from my tumblr.





 

Yay pretty flowers!

6: Velvet

Velvet things are totally my jam right now. I recently bought two velvet things and plan to get at least to more. It's the perfect winter fabric; luxurious and pretty, but still soft and comfortable.

 
 Beautiful dress from ModCloth.

How dreamy are those leggings? I'm buying them as soon as possible.

And as if I didn't have enough reason to love Dr. Martens already, they make the most perfect boots ever.

Anyway, this has been my post about how much I love flowers and unicorns. I'll return soon with some pictures of my face and stuff. Until then, fare thee well!
