I used to do Friday Favorites all the time. I thought it was fun to feature great posts, stories and recipes I saw throughout the week. I stopped for a while because I thought it was an overdone post topic, but I’ve decided to bring them back… with a new name: “Nutty For…” This was basically staring me right in the face – no idea how it took me this long to realize it. I’m working on some ideas and ways to make my blog even more “me” and more harmonious.
So yeah. Welcome to the first official Nutty For…!
Nutty For… Skinny Jeans
I’ve been wearing skinny jeans almost exclusively since 9th grade, so when I saw that skinny jeans are apparently on their way out, my heart almost stopped. What am I going to wear?!! No pants, I guess. Who needs ’em anyway?
Nutty for… No Photoshop
One of my favorite brands, Aerie, already made this pledge a few months ago, and now Modcloth is hopping on the ‘real’ train. This comes in accordance with a pledge to keep advertising more true to life, especially when young people are more likely to see it. I love that.
Nutty for… Writing
Let’s go back to our elementary days and work with an “if, then” statement for a minute. “If I have a blog, then I probably like to write.” Mind Body Green posted a list of awesome tips to streamline and improve your writing this week.
