Newspaper Blackout

Newspaper Blackout
Display of blackout poetry by the 8th grade students of Karen Tegtmeyer! Awesome. Awesome: grade nine students from Alberta, Canada making blackout poetry! Thanks @MsAmberJM for sharing!

I received an Alex & Isabelle hair tie in a Birchbox a few months back, and I loved it so much that I bought a few more in different colors. They are less damaging to the hair, not to mention cuter on the wrist. They are becoming increasingly popular, popping up with a glittered version at Anthropologie that sells for $12 for a pack of 5. This whole time I’ve been thinking how easy they must be to make, and I finally did some researching to figure out where I could find colorful elastic.

TUA MÃE GOSTA Under the lens of director Alexandre Baena, from Multi Amazônia Brasil Produtora, I am one of the characters of the documentary “Criativa”, which will approach the creative process of seven women in their respective fields: theater (Wlad Lima), photography (Walda Marques) fine arts (Eliene Tenório), music (Aíla Iaiá), fashion (Grazi Ribeiro), audiovisual (Melissa Barbery) and design (myself).

George Orwell: Politics and the English Language Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way, but it is generally assumed that we cannot by conscious action do anything about it. Our civilization is decadent and our language — so the argument runs — must inevitably share in the general collapse. It follows that any struggle against the abuse of language is a sentimental archaism, like preferring candles to electric light or hansom cabs to aeroplanes.

DIY Dry shampoo has been a MUST HAVE in my daily hair care routine for the past three years. I’ve gone through countless spray cans of different brands (Psst!, Tresemme, John Frieda, Garnier, Oscar Blandi, Batiste…to name a few), spending way too much for very little product. I started to use plain old baby powder, sprinkling it directly on my roots and rubbing it in, and I found that it worked just as well or even better at giving my hair added volume and combating greasiness. I continued to do this for months until one day I was at work, and I happen to catch a glance of my hair in the mirror.
