In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.
Amazing street performer Bryson Andres a Filipino-American from Anchorage Alaska creating his own one-man orchestra with a looping pedal, and he is a serious badass on the violin to boot.
(I made the baby listen to all of them… LOL!)
He’s not just amazing on the violin, he is a musical genius to boot.
Secrets – One Republic
Halo – Beyonce
Also.. I kind of want his killer electric violin (not that I could ever do it justice because he is a billion times better than I will ever be).

I’m sure you must have all heard of Stella and Dot that sells jewellery Mary Kay-style.
A Stella & Dot stylist brings over sample products for the women to try on and takes merchandise orders, earning a roughly 30% commission. The host of the party receives free product credit and other perks.
[Jessica] Herrin said stylists typically earn $250 to $300 per trunk show.
Most stylists are women who sell Stella & Dot products part time and make an average of $2,400 a year.
Stella & Dot designs and manufactures all of its products. Half of the jewelry is priced at less than $50.
This is how the Stella & Dot founder saw an opportunity and made it happen.
I’m a self-proclaimed feminist but even I don’t think women should help other women unless they’ve proven worthy of said help.
I wouldn’t help any other woman just because she’s a woman, the same way I wouldn’t help a man just because he’s a man.
I wasn’t thinking about looking thinner (I’m tiny as-is, or so people tell me), but these “thin” styling tricks are ones I use anyway because they’re comfortable!!
That said, I generally avoid looks that make me look or feel sloppy unless I WANT to look and feel sloppy that day (e.g. super oversized anything).
Speaking of style, I like Jenna Lyons sometimes, but her style is the opposite of what I want to wear. It’s too masculine, too baggy.. not my thing, but it looks incredibly appealing and wearable when this fashion blogger does it.
What an amazing childhood, this girl literally grew up among animals.
Who are these crazy people climbing on unstable wood planks and shizz to get to some frickin’ teahouse!?
This article is exactly why I tell NO ONE how old I am at work any longer. I once made the mistake of mentioning that I’ve seen record players and records only in films, having grown up with cassettes and DVDs, and the silence in the meeting said it all.
In my line of work, the older you are, the better. I just let everyone think I’m 6 years older than I really am.
One day, I will reach my real age.
I wear glasses so this hits home for me. What stunning gifs! More here.
Why am I buying these stupid herbs and vegetables again if I can just grow them myself? I’m a moron.
On my list: Scallions (Green Onions) and Basil.

This coat from Zara looks nice. I’m fairly sure it’s made in China so I won’t even bother (not to mention how tall the model is and how weird the coat will look on someone much shorter), but the styling is v. appealing.
This coat is pretty too.
This man won 1.7 million pounds after spending his last few coins on a ticket and vows to help addicts and abused women.
Faith in humanity, restored!
$1000 for a haircut that only lasts 3-4 months? Er… I think I’ll pass, but I am in the wrong business because it’s $1000 for about an hour’s worth of work.
(And who says so-called blue collar professions can’t make the big bucks!?)
It’s not that I don’t think celebrity hair stylists are worth the money, but that budget for a haircut is permanently out of my stratosphere, because I thought paying $100 for a haircut to last 6 months was pricey.
I think it’s more of a placebo effect. If you pay a lot of money for something like a haircut, you will think your neck looks thinner and you look better, and even if it isn’t true… it’s true to you, which is what justifies the cost.
This made my blood boil.
