Beauty, Style, & the Blogosphere
Edited by Ashe Mischief.
Beauty and Style come in many forms, and this week’s Links à la Mode choices showcase the many discussions entering the world of fashion blogging at the moment: excessive judgements, the value of personalities, and cultivating your inner beauty as well as your outer beauty. Bonne-Vie challenges the values of the show “More to Love” and Fivve Blog shares model sensation Lara Stone. Newcomer Jaka’s Tea Party calls to action with the Wholestyle Manifesto and Betsey J asks “Are we too judgemental as fashion bloggers?”
Not to overshadow this week’s Links à la Mode with too heavy of discussions, we’ve also got a great roundup of makeup tutorials & inspiration, along with great DIY projects & giveaways in the forums!
