The last few weeks have been a whirlwind! For one, Project C launches on Monday, so I’ve been working to plan some great promotional events and placements, as well as gain editorial publicity for them [hey, check out this article from Compass!]…that, in addition to finalizing my content for one of the featured stories that will appear on the site [www.clickingcreateschange.com]! Additionally, my time as an Ohio University undergraduate is quickly ticking down, so I’m working to savor every moment in between the work for my classes and student groups.
Luckily, I have found time to find some interesting content on the web. I hope you all enjoy what I’ve found this week:
Fashion Find: Caviar Manicure
To get this look from Ciáte you have to purchase one of their kits [which they happened to be sold out of right now]. I love the textured nails, I think the look is fierce and feminine. They also sell the kits with a rainbow assortment of pearls.
I’m always excited when I find new crafts, especially when they result in artwork to hang around the house! I found this project while surfing arts & crafts boards on Pinterest, the blog the image on Pinterest linked back to is full of tutorials for crafts, recycling projects, and even cooking new recipes. The thing I love about this project, turning books into wall art, is that it takes very few tools//supplies, and probably could be accomplished in a lazy Sunday afternoon. The supplies needed to create your very own artwork include:
- Wooden blocks
- A book
- A black marker
- Black vinyl paint
- White glue
- Paint brush
- Plastic container
Tech//Photo Find: Facebook Photo Filters Might Look Familiar
If you’re an Instagram user, the new photo app by Facebook might look familiar. I stumbled on this article from BuzzFeed. Many are now asking, why did Facebook drop $1 billion on Instagram, when they already had their own photo app in the works?
What do you think, will you be downloading the new app? While some of the filters are very similar to those available on Instagram, there are some differences, and the app by Facebook is free to download. As of now, I’m opting to stay loyal to my Instagram app + followers.
