I’ve just spent the better part of two hours wandering the web, instead of creating a post. It always starts innocently enough, checking for new posts on my favorite blogs. But then I get distracted. Either I head off shopping a new store that a blogger has mentioned or I’m hunting for new blogs to follow. Heaven forbid I find something to pin onto Pinterest – Pinterest could suck a person in for days… and you can end up so far from where you began! In an effort to find meaning in my meandering, here are just a few of the things I found today:
A new blog for me to follow
Erin, creator of Living in Yellow is killing me. Her humor is exactly my speed. The blog is also exactly my kind of mish-mosh perfection. It’s got fashion, food, stories and wit. On her About page she claims she’s not a writer, but she’s better than a lot of the people posting out there. And I’m referring to journalists and published authors as much as I am bloggers… but that’s a rant for a different day. Check her out. From her page, I found…
A new place to shop
Sugar Love Boutique carries clothes and accessories that are laid-back, on-trend but not desperately trendy, chic but not high maintenance, and a little bohemian. Also, in the grand scheme of things, they have a fairly small selection, which is refreshing. As much as I love Asos, sometimes just seeing the number of options wears me out before I’ve even begun. The only downside to my inaugural visit to Sugar Love Boutique was that the jacket I loved was sold out in my size.
A new album to purchase
I already knew what song I was going to use for Song of the Week Wednesday because I’d heard it for the first time (don’t judge) within the last week and was instantly obsessed. Beautiful, haunting music and a voice that, in the chorus, reminds me of Elton John. Good Elton John. Not that there is bad Elton John. Just a few (so few) less than great Elton John songs. I digress. So, found the YouTube video for Hozier Take Me To Church and discovered that the video is heartbreaking. It left me with chills and that sadness that just sits all through your chest. The video is beautifully done, and important, but not for the faint of heart. On the upside (and there is one, I swear), I ended up perusing through several Hozier songs and am hooked. iTunes, I’m on my way…
With that, I bring you my Song of the Week Wednesday #SOTWW submission, Take Me to Church by Hozier
