Hautelinks: Week of 1/24/13


Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

* Looks Aren’t Everything. Believe me, I’m a model. Wow! This is a truly honest, fantastic look into what modeling is REALLY like. Definitely a must-watch.

* This is a little old but we hadn’t seen it before: How to Pack Two Weeks in a Carry-On, from Seventeenth & Irving. Great to bookmark for spring break!

* Also old but worthwhile: Excerpts from “How to be Perfect”. These are, well, perfect.

* Love this: I’ll Be Happy When… SO many girls do this (I know I used to!), and it’s incredibly destructive to happiness.

Instead of future tripping everyday on what I need to do to get where I want to be, I’m focusing on what I have to give each day. By turning my attention away from where I’m lacking onto what I have to share, I’m finally experiencing all that happiness and satisfaction I “thought” I’d feel once I achieved my goals.

* The SAG awards are this Sunday, 1/27, (be sure to follow CF on Twitter – we’ll be live-tweeting the red carpet arrivals on Sunday starting at 6PM Eastern!), and to celebrate, People did a piece on SAG stars before they were famous.

* Also movie-related: 10 Actors Who Were Almost Cast in Classic Movies. Oh my god, I can’t stop picturing Nick Cage as Neo! Amazing.

* WhoWhatWear shows you how to make a polka dot backpack using nail polish!

* And speaking of bags and DIYs, why not sew your own yoga bag? The photos make it look SO easy.

* Instyle solves your 20 most annoying beauty problems.

* In case you missed the live-stream, Chanel’s Spring 2013 Couture show took place this week, and Glamour has a few of their favorite looks.

* Why You Need More Margin in Your Life, from Lifehacker. This is really great advice. I especially loved the stuff about knowing yourself and your rhythms, as well as their take on social media.

* I’m not sure how to really describe Fun Switcher, except “awesome” and “going to annoy your roomies”.

* Into The Gloss is doing a “Foundation Week”. Day 1 was pretty amazing if only for the “Ikea Bookshelf” foundation shade suggestion, and Day 2, where Molly lists her faves, had some great recommendations at all price points.

* Aww, these origami hearts, from Free People’s blog, are so perfect for V-Day!

* Where are they now? Guys from Mean Girls. Oh my god Shane Oman! I did not make that connection till now.

* From Thought Catalog, How I Fell in Love with Winter in One of the Snowiest Places on Earth. This is beautiful.

* 5 Psychology Studies Every Awkward Teenager Should Read, from Cracked. I found #2 really interesting – it definitely makes sense when you think about it!

* One more from Cracked: 4 Foods Renamed So That You Might Actually Eat Them. I want to know why prunes weren’t just called “dried plums” in the first place…

* The ultimate iPhone case for nail polish addicts. Love this idea, though Chanel’s legal department probably wouldn’t.

* Mentalfloss shares 11 words you’re probably mispronouncing. Yep, I had a couple of these wrong! What about you?

* The 10 Basic Tenets of Tannerism, from Buzzfeed. Preach, Michelle!

* Last one from Buzzfeed, promise: 22 Irrational Fears That Are Actually Normal. Don’t you feel less weird now?

* To celebrate the presidential inauguration, InStyle displays first ladies’ inaugural gowns throughout history.

* In other inauguration news, Teen Vogue has every outfit the Obama girls wore during inauguration weekend.

* Very cool: H&M will show at Paris Fashion Week this season!

* If you have a few minutes to spare, check out the first episode of Nina Garcia’s new web series “Decoding Style”. We always love witnessing a makeover, and in just 5 minutes? Brilliant.

* And finally, here are some Shetland ponies in sweaters!!! Bravo, VisitScotland. Bravo.

    Oh my, Z. I just had the same ecstatic reaction to Shane Oman that I’m expecting you had. And those ponies… in sweaters… awww.

    Glad you guys liked!

    Lauren – No prob! Thanks for writing your awesome article :)

    Caitlyn – YES. And those ponies, no lie, made my day yesterday. (I may have mass-iMessaged them to most of my friends and family, haha.)

    Chloe – I’m so glad you liked it. I felt the same way when I watched it yesterday! I especially loved her photos taken from the same day as the shoots – really shows what a team of professionals can do, and why no one, not even the model, can look like that in real life!

    That video was definitely worth the watch- such a more honest view of a model than you ever really get to see, and some big ideas on the concepts of beauty.
