Hello everyone! I’m starting a column every Thursday where I talk about three things that I find interesting and want to share with you. I might share a recipe I’ve been loving, a blog I recently discovered, or a Youtuber I think you should know about (one is featured today). Basically, anything I would love to talk about, but not dedicate a whole post to. Let’s get started!
1. Skandicrush | Skandicrush is a new subscription box for lovers of Scandinavian design. I recently discovered it through Door Sixteen (a blog I’ve been reading for aaaages.) It works like any other subscription box, but this one features home decor items! It’s $50 per month, which is a bit more than your average box, but the retail value of the items in each box is around $80, so it’s still a very good deal. Plus, just from looking at the first box on their site, which shipped out this week, everything looks GORGEOUS. If you’re interested, Door Sixteen is offering a discount code until October 31st.
2. My Beauty Uniform on A Cup of Jo | I’ve been reading A Cup of Jo for years. I consider Joanna one of my biggest blogging inspirations, and I loved this post in which she talks about her personal views on beauty. She shares some of her favorite products and tricks, but she also gets a little more personal and shares her philosophy on personal beauty. It’s such a sweet post. I especially loved when she talked about her signature scent (or lack thereof). Here are the rest of the posts in her “My Beauty Uniform” series.
3. Shameless Fripperies/Karima Mckimmie | I recently discovered Karima’s Youtube channel through Lily Pebbles’ blog, and I’m completely obsessed! This woman knows her shit. She is so knowledgeable and she gives off a different vibe than some of the other big-name Youtubers, in a good way. I get the sense from listening to her that she loves makeup and wants to share her passion with us, simple as that! I recommend her channel if you want straight up makeup talk with less lifestyle types of videos. She puts out great, high-quality content, and she’s crazy gorgeous and talented. She also has a blog. Enjoy!
That’s all for this week; I hope you like this series!
