I’ve been missing. Where have I been? Well. We have been moving into a larger apartment (my clothes need space), so that actually has been rather time consuming. Mostly, it’s Pokemon GO though. I spend hours wandering around in search of Pikachus and Charmanders. While reviews have been a rather mixed bag (nerds are catty AF), I really enjoy it.
When it initially launched it was pretty bad. Not the game itself, but Niantic’s servers. Hot damn. I’m sure their servers consisted of a garden gnome running on a hamster wheel. At least, that’s what it seemed like. A lot has improved though; it rarely crashes, stays pretty fast, and they’re constantly on top of bugs (bye-bye footprint radar). Most importantly, it’s bringing people together.
I am a rabidly huge supporter of small businesses. Ironic coming from Starbucks’ number one fan, eh? Regardless of my vividly pink drink preferences, I adore artists from Etsy, Society 6, and beyond. So, when Blending By Betty reached out to me, I was over the moon ecstatic. Here’s an amazingly talented lady with an aesthetic that perfectly aligns with my own. And she’s willing to take a chance on teaming up with a new blog? Done and done.
I’ve been rather hush-hush on the Resort collections. There’s been a lot grabbing my attention (looking at you Gucci and Valentino), but I just wasn’t ready to jump on my blow horn. Then one of my low-key favourites wowed me with some crazy prints, fish skins, and sustainable fashion. Osklen, you have my heart.
Roughly 400 years ago, I discovered a little brand called Black Milk. They’re Australian nylon whisperers who might be just as nerdy as me. If you haven’t jumped on board their train of cool, you’ve been missing out on some of the coolest things ever.
