Secret Style Icon: Weetzie Bat I was 14 when I first discovered Weetzie Bat at my school library. I was experiencing a lot of new ~teen feelings~ during that time, relating to the longing angst of Angela Chase while also trying to decipher the quirky, in-love-with-life lyrics of Björk songs. Francesca Lia Block’s book (the first in a series) tied together all of these themes that were dancing in my head and wrapped them up in a sparkling little story about a bleach-blonde, Jayne Mansfield-loving, mosh pit-seeking girl and her makeshift family of misfits coming of age in Hollywood. The book is very short, yet spills over with vivid descriptions of the “pink flamingo sky” and Weetzie’s “old fifties’ taffeta dresses covered with poetry written in glitter.” Clockwise from top left: Chelsea Kane as Weetzie; a still from Autumn de Wilde's Weetzie-inspired shoot for Paper; two looks from Wildfox Couture's Fall 2012 collection. Over the years, Weetzie fans have paid tribute to her in their own special ways.

Building a sauna - How to build a basic sauna Sauna Building - Sauna Stoves Disclaimer: this account of sauna building is what worked for us. It is entirely at your own risk to pursue such a project and a fire extinguisher to hand (stored outside of the sauna itself), never bathing alone and leaving if you feel dizzy or overheated are essential for safety. People with heart conditions or not used to sauna bathing should exercise extreme caution with this type of sauna bathing. This is a basic account of how we built a basic sauna on a small budget, including a wood burning sauna stove. This shed based sauna is not designed to give a lifetimes use but ours has been used frequently for a year or so now and has held up and works perfectly adequately. Where?? We chose the shed. Building the Sauna Our shed was a pretty standard 8'x5' size of the type found in many gardens. The floor of the shed was lined with pine planks, sanded smooth and splinter free. The walls and roof were lined with standard tounge and groove pine cladding. Furniture

Your garden and glow in the dark stones Using stones glowing in the dark is helping to confront two basic, most important and key tasks: the exotic view and lighting area at night, and also adds sense of magic, fairy tales and miracles, because any experienced landscape designer, using stones, glowing in the dark can create just fantastic and bewitching landscapes. Using stones, glowing in the darkness, there is no need to use electric lights on the dark areas of the garden, a path or garden path without lights will be well in sight now. Saving electricity - is another definite plus use of self-luminous stone. The stones which glow in the dark are a great tool for the design of your garden: they can be used to spread flower beds, paths and ponds. The path, lined on the edges of these stones will be visible all night, it will not need to use the lights,and people in that garden are finding himself in a fairy tale!

Teenage Wasteland: LIFE Magazine Pictures of Young Japanese Rebels, 1964 “Happy families are all alike,” Tolstoy famously wrote, “but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Few have ever questioned the validity of Tolstoy’ assertion — but the opposite might well be said of those most volatile family members: teenagers. Every happy teen, after all, is happy in his or her own way; but unhappy teens are all alike. Such a declaration, of course, hardly diminishes the issues forever bedeviling teenagers: navigating a maelstrom of suddenly unleashed hormones; confronting the riddle of how (or whether) to try to fit in with one’s peers; exploring the limits of rebellion against … everything. That said, in very few societies is the idea of youth as fraught as it is in Japan. In Rougier’s photographs — pictures that seem to breathe, at once, a reckless energy and an acute despair — we don’t merely glimpse kids pushing the boundaries of rebellion. Nowhere in the world does youth seem to dominate a nation as they do in Japan.

Youth in Revolt There’s something about the middle of the summer that always had me aching to be with my friends every single minute of the day. Nobody felt like being alone at home, so you’d get into the kind of trouble that usually happens when the sun goes down. These highly quotable and equally stylish movies remind me of that summer freedom we so desperately yearn for when fall is just around the corner.

DIY Polaroid Hanger If you’ve just moved into a dorm room, or you’re just bored with the way your bedroom looks, here’s a fun and cheap way to display photos on your walls. Make them into fake Polaroids, and hang them on a clothesline! You’ll need: • Your photos, printed out—make them all the same size (approximately the size of a Polaroid photo, minus the border). If you use photos from Instagram you can cheat and use a filter to make these look like actual old Polaroids. • White paper • Craft clips (from a stationery store) or mini clothespins. • Tape or glue • Scissors • Yarn • Markers (optional) • Pushpins How to do it: 1. 2. You can then even fold the paper to make creases that will show you where to cut and make sure all your “Polaroids” are the same size. 3. 4. And now you have a “Polaroid”! 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Yay!! You don’t have to hang the photos against a blank wall, either. Thanks for reading my first Rookie DIY; I’ll have lots more ideas for you in the future!
