Weekend Roundup \\ 12

Happy Sunday everyone! Here is a roundup from the past two weeks. I hope you're all having a great weekend.


New makeup from Forever 21 and Sephora + My five new pairs of shoes that I didn't need but really wanted.

Driving around with Jeanie + Throwback to Disney World the summer of 1997.

A trip to Creature Comforts Brewery last weekend.

Organizing my jewelry, including these pins + Mushroom print fabric for a dress I'm attempting to make.

An outtake from my most recent outfit post + A very far away picture of Def Leppard from Friday night.

Media
\\ Pinterest is introducing the ability to follow different interests rather than just boards & users. Hooray for more ways to see pins you're interested in!
\\ Some cable companies are offering packages with basic TV + HBO so you don't have to pay for cable TV to get that premium channel. Game of Thrones fans rejoice.
\\ Leap Frog (the children's educational game company) just came out with a video game system designed for kids 3 - 8. The controllers are even made for their smaller hands!
\\ Disney is developing a live action Dumbo movie. Is it just me or is that going to be an incredibly sad film?
\\ The Girl Scouts hosted its first video game course where girls learned how to design objects and people in a virtual 3D environment.
\\ Why the future of Netflix is in children's entertainment.

Science
\\ Been seeing that ad for Lucy saying we only use 10% of our brains? Complete myth. I'm so glad someone else pointed this out because I was probably annoying my family by complaining about the ad each time I saw it.
\\ Another reminder to please wear sunscreen. People publishing about the dangers of sunscreen are not scientifically literate nor are the people spreading that message.
\\ Monkeys make logical fallacies just like we do!
\\ A disappearing planet visualizes the high rate of animal extinction happening on Earth right now.

Fashion
\\ 12 lesser-known careers in the fashion industry. Everyone doesn't have to be a designer!
\\ Geek fashion inspired by Futurama.
\\ How to wear your favorite graphic t-shirt at the office.
\\ 7 deadliest fashion trends of all time.
\\ Vintage inspired sunglasses for every decade.

Other
\\ "What happened when we gave our daughter my last name." Check this out - especially if you never thought about how society deems a woman's last name as disposable.
\\ 12 hour travel guides for different cities!

Looks like you got some good finds at Sephora. I swear, it's almost impossible to leave empty-handed.

Oh, and brewery tours for the win!

I cannot wait to see how that dress you are working on turns out. The fabric is absolutely amazing!
