I Heart the Internet-Links I Love

billcunninghamDearest friends, if you’re into fashion or photography you probably heard New York Times’ prolific and legendary photographer Bill Cunningham passed away on Saturday. I occasionally saw Cunningham around town on his bike–he trolled midtown Manhattan for his subjects and he was a revered presence at every fashion week, Gatsby party, and many other NY events I attended. While Cunningham was the father of street fashion photography, what always struck me is the joy that he had on his face while taking pictures and it always made me smile.

Here is a man who found something that inspired him everyday and gave him joy everyday…if we could all only be so lucky. If you haven’t seen Bill Cunningham New York, you should(!)-it’s a great film about a passionate man. Rest in peace Bill Cunningham.

Now friends, please do enjoy some wonderful reasons I hearted the internet this week.

  • Now that it’s warming up I’m excited to test out these 10 up-dos they claim you can actually do with your 2 hands!
  • I’m definitely a craigslist/thrift store kinda gal when it comes to home decor! These tips on how to be a thrifter and not a hoarder are totally on point!
  • Loving this list of natural and cruelty free nail polishes.
  • 49 BRILLIANT uses for your camera phone–you know when you read something and you ask yourself why haven’t I been doing that my whole life? Yeah, that was me after I read this–game changer.

Lastly friends, this past Sunday NYC celebrated the LGBTQ community and in the wake of the horrible incident in Orlando I wanted to leave you with these photos of unity. The world outstretched their arms to Orlando and I truly hope they felt it. Have a beautiful week, friends.
