Weekend Reading Vol. 11

From gorgeous design to inspiring projects, the internet was full of awesome finds this week. Here, a few of my faves...

1  My latest art obsession comes from Raven Roxanne, an abstract artist who really floors me with her sense of color. I especially love the faceless silhouettes in her Girls with Flowers series. (Raven Roxanne)  |  2  As far as plus-size fashion goes, I think ASOS Curve really stands out for being edgy and fashion-forward. The new fall lookbook (starring Gabi Fresh) is seriously awesome. (Gabi Fresh)

 

3  I'm very intrigued by this interactive book, Start Where You Are, with its gorgeous illustrations and prompts aimed at helping readers nurture their creativity. (Brown Paper Bag)  |  4  And have you heard of The Scout Project? Maybe I'm just trying to fill a childhood void from never having any merit badges sewn onto my Girl Scout sash (#middlechildproblems). ;) But, seriously, I just think the whole project is adorable. (The Private Life of a Girl)

 

5  I seriously love Jason Segel's perspective. (Austin Kleon)

Jason Segel on being okay with being bad until you’re good:

I’m willing to be bad for as long as it takes, until I’m good….I don’t have a sense of shame. I just don’t. If I’ve hurt someone’s feelings, if I’m mean to somebody, I’ll lament over that for days. I’m that dude. I’ll lose sleep over mundane stuff. But I don’t really have the thing of, “Oh, I’ve embarrassed myself.” I just don’t understand why I would stop trying to play piano even though I’m not good at it. I want to be good at it. So why wouldn’t I keep playing?

Just. Keep. Working.

 

But wait! There's more...

Fascinated by these Japanese words. I'm a total Irusu.

In case you missed the "juicy" news- so excited!

Possibly the most gorgeous jewelry collection ever.

An interesting take on marbling DIYs.

"There were no wolves in this movie." Hilarious.

Coveting these shoes, this skirt, and this crazy cool jacket.
