Look Inside Your Selfie.

The problem with technology is that it sometimes makes you feel inferior. You see things you *think* you want (and what others always seem to have)– these things can be as simple as a cute new top or as major as a new career. 

But if the technology wasn’t around, would you still want these things? Would the changes make you happy? Or would you be satisfied AND confident in the life you are lead? 

I love technology. It provides me with the means to seek out new information and ideas, to connect with people from all over the world, and to express myself freely. 

However, I notice that it can riddle you with fears and anxieties about not living a life that is fulfilling enough …But whose standards are these? Are they our own? Or were they only created because technology exists? 

Why does technology have such a strong hold over us? One so strong that it is able to make us doubt ourselves and the decisions we once made in confidence? 

If we weren’t constantly being inundated with posts and pictures and party invites would we be able to just sit back and enjoy ourselves?

Tumblr Tuesday!

Hello fellow bloggers!

I’ve been meaning to share some of my favorite Tumblr accounts for a while now, but I kept getting side-tracked! For those of you who don’t know what Tumblr is, it’s another blogging platform (like WordPress), however, it’s much more streamlined and mostly images are circulated. Of course, there are options to post links, quotes, audio, and video.

What I like most about Tumblr is that there is so much variety. What I mean is, you log on and never know what your dashboard (similar to the WordPress “feed”) will look like. With Pinterest, there is a lot of repetition and being on the site gets boring after awhile. On WordPress, you really have to know who to follow to make the most of your experience. But, on Tumblr, I’ve uncovered so many unique blogs just by clicking around. There is literally a blog for everything. Obsessed with One Direction? Lover of Pizza? Or maybe you want to see cats with lots of money? Tumblr has it all.

With that being said, here is a list of my all-time favorite Tumblr pages (in no particular order):

  1. MONSTAFEVA– Artist Fefe Talavera’s tumblr account is just as insane as her paintings. 
  2. Think Different– Just a truly awesome collection of images, and even better music.
  3. Dior– Dior’s official Tumblr account, need I say more?
  4. Bohemea– Fashion & Film stills. In one word: Chic.
  5. Vintage Gal-Everything from classic movie GIFs to retro pin-up goddesses, this is the perfect vintage blog.
  6. Through Opened Eyes– What I’d imagine an acid trip to be like—an endless supply of really weird images, I love it.
  7. Explore– I’ve learned so much by following this blog—great quotes, articles, and videos.
  8. Beautiful Swear Words– NSFW; Being vulgar has never been so vogue.
  9. rADVENTURES– A collaborative effort by a group of friends sharing their rad adventures (get it? rADVENTURES..)
  10. Black and White– Only black and white photos, beautiful.

Ok, I think 10 is a good place to stop. If you have a tumblr, leave a comment with your URL! I’d love to check your page out! Also, if you have any suggestions of other blogs I should follow, comment and let me know!
