Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, you guys! What’s going on this weekend? Jules has selflessly volunteered to help me pack up my apartment, and after we tire of that, we’ll probably take a break to enjoy the Bellevue Arts Fair. There’s always some amazing stuff to see (last year’s highlight was a giant iron moose), and hopefully I’ll get a few ideas for decorating my new place. Don’t worry, the giant moose will not be involved. Now let’s kick off the weekend with a few fun links!

Friday Favorites

1. Has anyone heard of Illumask? Apparently this weird stormtrooper-esque mask uses light therapy to clear up acne-causing bacteria in your skin. One rave review has me intrigued! (The Golden Girl)

2. These tips for taking blog photos are super handy. The focus is on composition and styling rather than technical stuff – helpful for everyone, whether you’re working with an iPhone or a fancy camera. (Ghost Parties)

3. See what $1,500 in rent looks like around the world. In Cairo, it’ll get you a sweet view of the pyramids. (BuzzFeed)

4. Even though I live alone, I think this guide to decorating a home with your significant other is really interesting. Now someone just needs to write a guide titled “How to Convince Him He Doesn’t Need Any Closet Space.” (A Beautiful Mess)

5. Who else is watching UnREAL? Jules and I are hooked. If you love the Bachelor (or love to hate it), you’ll enjoy this look at what happens behind the scenes of a “reality” dating show. It’s dark, twisted and totally entertaining. Anyway! This interview with one of the show’s creators poses an interesting question: can we be feminists and still love The Bachelor? (Elle)

Have a fabulous weekend!

  3. I read this post on Friday and watched three episodes of UnReal. I love it! So addicting.

    The video on Gh0st Parties is incrediable and so timely. I felt so inspired after watching. I hadnt heard of this site before, but now I will be visiting often. I’m also following her on Instagram.
