WANT WANT WANT

I love to shop, obviously you know that if you’ve visited my blog before. Not that I ever need a reason to shop, but I really want my freaking boyfriend to purpose to me so I can start shopping for wedding supplies and items for our first home! So boyfriend if you’re reading this and are finally willing to marry me, I think this vintage ring is SO fanX5UJI2Gtastic! I would love to wear it on my left hand for the rest of my life…hint hint.

First, go grab some headphones. The best ones you’ve got. If the best ones you’ve got are these suckers (or something similar), you should really go buy new ones, but use the best you’ve got for right now.

Take a break from whatever you’re doing for 2 minutes and listen, but just listen to the whole thing, even if you have to multi-task.

Headphones on? Ok. Good.

Now, press play.

Stuff You Can Use: Pretty Colors

The first step in customizing a Tumblr theme is through the use of custom hex colors for accents, backgrounds, fonts, and highlights. The trial-and-error process of pinning down the right color, though, is often tedious and frustrating.

Fortunately, Tumblr’s topherchris runs Pretty Colors, a user-submitted blogbase of favorite hex colors. Each post comes captioned with the color’s exact code, enabling easy copypasta to ease your customization woes. And, in this case, Tumblr’s “Random” post finder has never been more useful.

Especially with hugely color-customizable themes like Hue or Insider, plugging and playing around with codes instead of wheel-nudging can be incredibly time-saving. Take a stroll through Pretty Colors and beautify your blog. Enjoy!

I’m honored that Pretty Colors is finally getting some of the recognition it deserves, but where is the book deal, people?

Carrie Bradshaw Math

thefrenemy:

Don’t get me wrong- I watch Sex and The City. I never got why she wore a lot of shit on her head, or why she thought Chris Noth was remotely fuckable, but I still dug that slutty old lady who made all the cock puns. I’ve seen most of the episodes, I’ve drank booze and saw them with my ‘girlfriends’ and at one point I concluded I may have been a Miranda even though I’m not a ginger bitch. However, there’s been something about the show that has been gnawing at me lately. 

I’ve been out of college with a writing degree for almost a year now. I too, moved to NYC (well, Brooklyn, but I wear more skinny jeans than Charlotte) to pursue writing. And I’ve done pretty well with it, soo fucking whoop-de-do for me, but something’s been bothering me and I just need to get it off my chest:

Carrie Bradshaw, you gotta be tripping balls to have us believe that you can sustain yourself that extravagantly on that one stupid-ass column. You lying bitch!

I’m calling it now: The laptop starts dying tomorrow.
IT’S HAPPENED BEFORE
As someone in both the photo and the tech world, I’ve seen (and spoken about) the point and shoot camera’s declining relevance.
Ten years ago, they couldn’t make those thing fast enough. Then one day someone put a camera into a phone.
It took a while, but the cameraphone has slowly, quietly, and almost completely replaced the point and shoot for many people. Cameraphones are simpler, more convenient (smaller) and, for 99% of situations, they are good enough.
When you need a really great photograph you use an SLR. The rest of the time, you use a phone. The point and shoot is dying, relegated to a niche middle ground.
IT’S ABOUT TO HAPPEN AGAIN
The same’s about to start happening in the computer hardware market. Laptops have always been a compromise solution. They’re awkward and unergonomic, slow compared to their desktop counterparts, have poor battery life, and are just as complex and confusing to operate as their larger brethren.
Enter the iPad. Simpler, more convenient, and for 99% of uses, good enough. See a pattern?
Yes, the first version will be flawed. Yes, it will be hard to tear your beloved laptop out of your hands. Yes, it won’t live up to all of its promises. Yes, it will take time. Maybe years.
And, like your cameraphone, it’s going to sneak up on you. But one day, pretty soon, you’ll realize that you haven’t used your laptop in days. That you tend to grab your iPad first whenever you need to visit a website or answer email. That your laptop never leaves your desk anymore.
It starts tomorrow.
