For your Wanderlust…

As expert travelers, we all know that there is no cure for our wanderlust until the next adventure, but I’ve found that these travel & lifestyle blogs can really help:

Each blog has a unique take on the different facets of travel. The Culture-ist has some great think pieces and photo essays, Thrillist is known for their love of adventure and crazy attractions, Tuula Vintage and The Love Assembly combine fashion and travel in a flawless manner, and my new favorite, A Modern Wayfarer, has great personal posts in addition to interviews with other rad globetrotters!

Check them out and let me know what you think! Also, if you have any other recommendations leave them in the comments below! I don’t think you can ever follow too many good blogs! 🙂

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!

The VW Beetle like you’ve never seen it before…

Yes, that is the new VW Beetle in a way that I’m sure you’ve never seen before. As a part of Mediacom’s new campaign for Volkswagen, they’ve turned the iconic automobile into an underwater shark cage. (Just in time for Shark Week, too!) Read more about the process behind this unique idea here.
