Love List

1. Alicia Keys released a new song/video this week called We Are Here. The song and the corresponding "#WeAreHere" Instagram movement are all about working towards a world free of war, poverty, and violence. You can see the video here and read more about the project here.

2. Seung-Hwan Oh created his latest series by "implementing microbial growth on film as a means to explore the impermanence of matter as well as the material limitations of photography." Deep message, beautiful pictures.

3. Trusper is a cool new app where you can get tips on almost any topic.

4. GAP wants you to Wear Something Normal. The...well, the ME in me immediately said "who is GAP to say what's normal?" Then, I read a little more about their message. The idea is "When you're dressing normal, you're really your truest and most confident and authentic self." There is definitely room for argument that people are being their true selves even when dressing "weird" compared to social norms. That said, I'll let GAP slide. I like any campaign pushing for authenticity. See more here.

5. Love the chic look of these 3D printed bottle openers by Second Sun.

6. Drop's Smart Kitchen Scale brings tech to the kitchen. I find stuff like this so cool.

7. I wrote about the #IWokeUpLikeThis movement a couple of months ago. I really like how this article addresses the topic.

8. The mussed glamour of this high volume ponytail is right up my alley. Love the look for date night.

9. I clean my makeup brushes pretty regularly and keep them clean in between with a sanitizing spray made for the job. But what about when I need to get excess powder/eyeshadow off without wetting the brush? This little glove by Sigma is perfect for it.
