Favourite Buzz

My favourite buzz this week goes to 37 Things to DIY Instead Of Buy For Your Wedding. It will be two years in January since Man Piece proposed and although we haven’t set a date or even really started thinking about it*, I’m always on the look out for interesting ideas to make the wedding a bit more ‘us’. I have the idea to DIY a few things in order to personalise things, but other than that I want a fairly simple plain non-extravagant wedding.

I really love the idea of ribbons on the back of the chairs.

This article from Mashable has 17 Photographs That Display Perfect Symmetry, which was compiled from a Mashable challenge set for people to take photos with symmetry.

I think my favourite is this one of escalators:

Interesting Article

Reason 818** why I love Jennifer Lawrence:

You look like you look, and be comfortable. What are you going to do be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.

A-to-the-men, sista. This interview with her as she promotes Hunger Games: Catching Fire is one of the best things ever. She basically tells the haters to go screw themselves. She is fast becoming my new favourite celebrity.

This photo might also play a part:

Fashion Love

This week’s fashion love has to go to the Swim+ Lookbook put together by Danimezza. I have flicked through it a couple of times now and am loving several of the swimsuits featured. Although I have already purchased new togs this year from Autograph (post to come later this week), I’m contemplating one or two more from this. Especially one of the Robyn Lawley pieces. I hear David Jones stocks them.

Grabby Hands

I’m really wanting a pair of crop black pants which I can wear with a nice heel for work. I’ve been looking around but can’t find too many. I’ve found one pair from Target in the new Bellecurve range and one pair from Autograph. Neither of these really look like what I am after. I think I might have to go try both pairs on because I might change my mind after that. Do you know of anywhere else stocking black crop pants in plus sizes?

I was actually wondering what I would even put in here for the video this week and then I saw in my Facebook timeline the new video for ‘Let It Go’ by Demi Lovato for the new Disney movie Frozen. Done. You get Demi again. Sorry, not sorry.

She is truly amazing and I totally have a girl crush.

 

*This is a complete and utter lie. I’ve planned the whole thing in my head. Man Piece is the one that hasn’t thought about it.

** I made this number up. Sorry, not sorry.

It’s the start of something new.

So I haven’t posted an ‘On The Web’ post in the last few weeks. I kind of got interrupted by my trip to Wellington and then just stopped doing them. Anyway, I’m wanting to change the posts up a bit, but still do them. I’m aiming to give them a bit of structure each week instead of just articles I have read and cover a few main categories.

The categories I’m wanting to do each week – and these are hopefully going to broaden my horizons a little – are:

Favourite Buzz – I love Buzzfeed and I could spend hours reading the articles. So instead of having an entire post of articles from the site, I am going to choose one. It’s going to be hard, but I’m up for the challenge.

Favourite Image – I love photography. People take some amazing photos and I’m hoping that I will find one incredible image a week. They may in majority come from Instagram, of which I am not ashamed to admit, because it is such a great image app.

Interesting Article/Blog – This will be a bit more in-depth. Either a great blog I have read or a feature article. Something that might make people think.

Fashion Love – This is a fairly vast topic. It could either be an item I have seen on the web, or a blog from one of the many fashion bloggers I follow. But it will be fashion related. Cause fashion is awesome.

Grabby hands – This, as it suggests, is something that I want. When I covet something I usually say or make the grabby hands (pincer motions, ok, basically I look like a crab when I do them).

Video – I tossed up about whether to include this one, but the fact is I do watch a lot of music videos and movie trailers each week.

And so, on to this week’s lot!

Ok, so I know I said I was going to choose one, but I have been a bit busy in the past week and have been creating a few Buzzfeed articles myself. So how can I choose just one of my precious articles to feature here? Well, I can’t. I promise next week it will just be one. Promise.

interesting article

This article from Daily Life basically summarises how I feel about diets and weight loss regimes. I’ve given up on them and I couldn’t be happier. It is about just about being healthy and happiness is a part of that.

It is an open letter from a former weight loss consultant to her clients apologising for, essentially, doing her job. I particularly love the quote at the end, “Just eat food. Eat real food, be active, and live your life. Forget all the diet and weight loss nonsense. It’s really just that. Nonsense.”

This one has to go to Demi Lovato this week. I copied her style for Aussie Curves – Celebrity Copy Cat because I am loving her style right now. It is definitely to my tastes and I think I might have to copy some more of her outfits.

I really want this dress from City Chic and I know when I go to try it on – because I will – that if it does not fit I am going to bawl my eyes out in the changing rooms. I also have a $30 voucher to spend and I’m hopeful that this week is the week that the new Pitt St store opens. Saturday means shopping!

This week is very Demi Lovato driven, I have to say. But in finding the Aussie Curves inspiration, I came across a few live performances she did for The Grammys. Just stripped down amazingness. There are three performances and a short interview in this playlist. Enjoy.

Aussie Curves – Celebrity Copy Cat

At the start of this week I had no idea which celebrity style I wanted to copy. My mind was blank.

Finally Friday rolled around and I thought, I need to pick *someone*. So I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. I started looking through celebrities and women’s fashion, but wasn’t really finding anything. Then I stumbled upon a photo of Demi Lovato and everything just fell in to place. Within five minutes I had an entire outfit planned.

This seems to be her current go-to outfit, and I have to say, I love it. Perfect mix of rock, grunge and glam. I also LOVE her neon blue hair right now. (No, I haven’t gone that far in celebrity copy cat, but one day I would love to dye my hair blue. One day…)

Anyway, here is what I have come up with. It’s kind of a mix of the two photos of her.

I actually went all out for this and I had so much fun. I planned the hair, make-up and jewelry. All fitting in with Demi’s style.

My t-shirt is actually one I have had for ages and I still love wearing it. Yes it does say “Make cupcakes not war”, cause I love cupcakes and don’t like war. It is from Johnny Cupcakes, an American clothing brand that does all sorts of cool tees and clothing, as well as accessory type things. I chose this tee for the outfit because I don’t have any of my band t-shirts with me here in AU, but I think it still fit with the style.

In the photos Demi has several chains, so I layered a couple of my normal necklaces I wear, just because I don’t own any chunky chains. I also wore a few cuffs/spiky bracelets, which she tends to wear quite often.

I even painted my nails black for the occasion. Dedicated. It is Midnight in NY by Sally Hansen. It’s a great nail polish as it has a bit of glitter in it. It also has a nice flat brush which allows for easy application, and it is fast drying.

And of course the outfit wouldn’t be complete without a bit of make-up. Demi was wearing a bright red lipstick, so I decided to pull out mine. This is Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Trendsetter. I love it because it really does stay on once set and doesn’t come off on glasses etc. Also note my bling earrings. Demi had a pair on as well.

So what do you think? Did I nail it? Also, new photo wall – AMAZING.

Leggings: ASOS curve
T-shirt: Johnny Cupcakes
Jacket: City Chic
Heels: Grace Hill, Ezibuy
Jewelry: cuff off a pair of shoes from Target, spike bracelets and earrings from Diva/Lovisa, necklaces from Tiffany’s and a market stall in Chatswood, cat ring from ASOS the other one I made myself from a button.

Would the real Demi Lovato please stand up?

Yesterday while I was sitting in Wellington airport waiting for my flight back to Sydney, I decided to watch some videos on YouTube to use up some of my remaining data.

I came across the official ‘Heart Attack’ lyric video on Demi Lovato’s channel. When I first listened to it I did not think much of it and blogged my thoughts. But I decided to give it another listen to see if I liked it any more.

TURNS OUT, that the song I originally listened to wasn’t ‘Heart Attack’ at all, but some other dubious song, which someone had named as ‘Heart Attack’. Some old cover Demi had done. It has now been removed from YouTube.

YOU BASTARD.

Anyway, the REAL song is actually pretty good and I quite like it.

Shut the front door. No, really.

I am listing to Demi Lovato’s new song and all I can think is, what the actual fuck is this?

I have no idea.

Could it be one that slowly grows on you? No idea.

It is definitely not what I usually listen to, yet I usually listen to Demi.
