The ballarina bun is a super easy hairstyle for when you don’t want to shower just yet. Take your hair at the crown of your head and twist into one long “rope” of hair. Wrap it around itself and use an elastic to hold!
This sketch reminds me of galaxies for some reason. Which reminds me–I need to get myself a pair of nebulae-patterned leggings. They would be cliche expect for the fact that they’re so darn hard to find. Owning a pair is like an achievement in itself.
Would you call these scary beautiful, or just plain scary?
“These heels appear backwards on the foot, so the wearers feet point straight down the back, as if in ballet shoes, with their shin leaning against the front "heel” end of the design to balance. The shoes are a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg, and serve as a commentary on today’s impossible standards of beauty.“ – Joanna Douglas
urban burbian chanson du jour: Zero by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ album IT’S BLITZ! has to be one of my top 10 albums of all time. On it is this gem, Zero, the (walking) dead beat Heads Will Roll, the bonus track Clap Song Clap Song, and so much more! The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have always been known for their punky-funky blend of syncopated beats and sweet vocals, and IT’S BLITZ! takes the cake.
This song is sure brighten up even your least urban day.
We just discovered Anicase, the NY-based company making these ridiculously cute iPhone cases. But aside from being aesthetically pleasing, the cases each represent a species in danger of becoming extinct. Order one here. (10% of the profits go to endangered species).
