weekend reading

Hello friends! Happy Friday to you! We made it. I hope your week was full of success and happiness. Enjoy the weekend, sit back and relax, and read some fabulous links. You deserve it. 

For a while now, people have been telling me how much I would like The Great British Baking Show. It sounded cute and everything but I wasn't sure I'd like it because I'm not super into cooking competition shows. This week I watched it and...everyone was right. I LOVE it. It is the most wholesome thing I have ever seen and is pure feel-good entertainment! And it really makes me want to bake delicious stuff! 

I love a bright and light room and these rooms are totally filling me with happiness and inspiration.

Last weekend was Record Store Day and while I did not go out to the stores, I did order a special edition of one of my favorites! 

Plastic Fashion. Aka why I'm being a much more conscious consumer these days. 

Speaking of conscious consumerism, I found a few clothing websites to help me on the quest! Zady has a lot of basics and Zuri is full of colorful and multipurpose dresses. 

Continuing that conversation- What Makes a Garment "Slow Fashion"?

I've been seeing a few simple log cabin quilts on the internet these days and they're making me itch for a new quilt project. Jeni's is only making me itchier! 

Since I am taking a crafting break, I have been reading so much. I've read 3 books in the last week! This week I finished History of Wolves, which was fantastic. I then picked up The Signature of All Things, which I have been meaning to read for years but I am just now getting around to it. It made one of my friends obsessed with moss when she read it so we'll see if it has the same effect on me! 

And finally, a very important article...about washing your hair. There have been a lot of articles on this specific topic lately and you know when the NYT writes about it it's a serious issue. This dude says most women can wash their hair twice a week WITHOUT USING DRY SHAMPOO. WHAT. He says "a few spritzes of a vinegar solution at the roots will remove oil. Just add five drops of apple cider vinegar to five ounces of water in a spray bottle." I am skeptical but I'm totally going to try this. I hate washing/drying my hair with a fiery passion and rely on dry shampoo to get me through those in between days, but I really worry about the layer of dry shampoo that is surely coating my lungs (and every surface in my bathroom).
