Happy Valentine’s Day!

How appropriate that this week’s Things I Love Thursday is on Valentine’s Day, no? I love it, y’all.

So, for this week’s Things I Love, a list:

For Valentine’s Day, I’d like to just go ahead and say I love my significant other. Duh. Yes, sappy I know, but it’s true! I do. I am completely in love with Riley Flynn, and you can’t stop me!

I also adore this article by Molly Crabapple, artist and Dr. Sketchy creator extraordinaire! There is nothing wrong with being different or weird, y’all, and you should never let anyone put you down for your choice of self expression, okay?

I also have a love affair with corsets, in case you didn’t know. Seriously, I’m addicted to collecting and showing them off. I think they’re beautiful! Here are two of my favorites, but I have SEVERAL and I LOVE THEM ALL:

This article is an awesome one about corsets and common myths surrounding them. I mean, you guys know that corsets were basically big ol’ bras, right? They were actually quite comfortable and supportive when worn correctly, and nothing at all like how movies (such as Brave or Gone With the Wind) portrayed them! But, my readers are smart, right? Y’all didn’t really think they were all that bad.

Proof that you really can laugh in a corset

So, that’s it for my Things I Love Thursday post. Send me your favorite links and articles and images and things, y’all. Who knows, maybe they’ll end up in my next edition of TILT!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day! Celebrate it by eating a lot of honey to keep your kisses sweet and also to honour St. Valentine – the patron saint of lovers, epileptics, and beekeepers.

Things I Love Thursday

Some of you may have heard of Things I Love Thursday, but for those of you who haven’t, it’s basically just a day to post links to things that you love! So, if I’ve discovered anything, then I can post them on Thursdays.

So, this week, I’ve been loving on some all-natural blogs and recipes and such. I’m in LOVE with Crunchy Betty, and her advice is quite good. I’m planning on going on a big ol’ shopping spree soon and getting the ingredients to make some all-natural, homemade deodorant.  I’ve been using Tom’s of Maine’s Lavender deo stick, but I’ve noticed my left pit has been flaking a bit. Which is itchy! So, I’m ready to try her soothing stick version, or something.

Yup, this is the one

Also, I’ve recently switched to this all-natural shampoo bar. Yeah, I was skeptical, too. But, damn does it work! It’s conditioning, helps my hair not fall out, and I’m pretty sure it’s even helped my hair grow back thicker and faster. I have this one spot on my left temple sorta where I’ve burned my hair off from bleaching it so much, and the hair has now grown back long enough to blend with my eyebrow-grazing bangs!

You can’t even tell! Also, yeah, I cut my own hair

I am also in love with this blog (and this person), and I literally cannot tell you how good his photos and his songs are. He writes all of his own music, lyrics and plays the instruments for his songs. He’s also a great writer, as you can see from his Thoughts & Words, and he’s just an all around great and intelligent human being. He updates his blog a lot, so be sure to follow him!

Also, you guys. YOU GUYS. This. Do this. It will change your life. I’ve been doing this for a week now, and holy shit! My butt is literally BABY SOFT. Also, I think my cellulite is even less noticeable  This is great.

I *think* that’s it for this Things I Love Thursday. Have a lovely day and an amazing weekend, y’all! Also, if there’s anything I should know about, please do link me to it! I’m always up for reading fun and interesting things online.
