THE SELFIE

THE SELFIE

I have a pronounced love/hate relationship with The Selfie. The more obvious reasons are why I hate them, as they follow suit with the general publics similar dislike. But the reasons I love them dig deep into my self-image as I realize I am sufficiently satisfied with my life and the way I look without having photo documented proof. Its bad enough that 98% of social media results in serious FOMO because eevvveryone’s life seems better than mine but it is the face shots that I find so unnecessary that really grind my gears. These photos have no back story, are not tied to any good times just an extraordinarily vain thought of “oh… don’t I just look fabulous today. The world should definitely know about it.” This article below left me in stitches and anyone suffering from selfie-addiction should read it to educate themselves on what the world really thinks of their duck-face-bikini-mirror selfie.

BREAKFAST FOR DUMMIES

BREAKFAST FOR DUMMIES

Okay IRVers, our whole lives we’ve heard it is so important it is to eat breakfast however day after day we pick up a coffee and forgo starting our metabolism with some sort of solid food. Quinoa porridge is actually the answer to all problems. It can be made in a big batch, customizable to include any toppings your heart desires and really fills you up. This morning I added some almonds, frozen berries and a dollop of yoghurt and was just on cloud nine. Give it a try once and I promise, you will be making it on the regular. Check out some of the recipes below:

With a punch of vintage and a whole lot of girly, you can pick up a variety of neckless, rings and brackets ranging from many price points (and I promise there will be something to fit every budget). If you are feeling crafty, Brittany also offers a consulting service where you can design your own custom piece and include trinkets and tokens from good times past.

PEOPLE VS. PLACES

tumblr_mtosqk9Fdq1rbc7e8o1_1280

Check out the rad photo blog People vs. Places. The brain child of artists Timothy Burkhart and Stephanie Bassos, the pair created the double exposure project as a way to “step back from having full control of the image making process and trust in one another while allowing coincidences to happen naturally on film”. Stephanie first takes a full roll of photos of only people, and then Timothy reloads the roll and takes pictures of only places. These unedited results are amazing!
