Hey Mishka Loves… ♥

October 14, 2014

Welcome to Hey Mishka Loves…—the semi-weekly link round-up of stylish, festive content from my favorite blogs and morning reads. It’s been a few Tuesdays, but I’m back, and you’d better believe I have a few gems to share!

The focus today is staying positive and creative despite the lemons life may chuck at your head (and the lemons you put in your own mouth and later regret). As I explained a bit on the Bombay Mermaid blog today, I’m having a pretty emotionally abstract fall. During the process of sorting out my life and reassessing my “north”, I’ve found that creativity and positive energy are two must-haves for survival and sanity. It’s easy to forget how valuable these elements are in the grand scheme of existence.

For instance, during my hiatus, I thought I needed a break from this blog in order to sort myself out. However, for the past few weeks I’ve deeply missed sharing here, and I knew I would feel like myself again after diving back into this little hot pink editorial playground on my little corner of the internet. Just writing this post, I feel worlds better.

Enjoy the following links, and may your October be bursting with good vibes and gorgeous color palettes.

 If the image above makes you swoon, we’re on the same page. This is one of the most stunning editorials I’ve seen in forever, from the styling to the landscape. Want more eye candy? Check out this parade of gorgeousness, too.

 If you’re spending an ample amount of time alone lately, it can send your mind to unpleasant places, especially as the temperature drops and the rainy days of autumn arrive. This might be helpful.

 One mother wrote this list of things she wants her daughter to know, but all of us girls could stand to read (and memorize) them as well.

 Sometimes keeping your chin up is all about atmosphere. Here are a few ways to create a delicious aroma in your apartment or bedroom. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference.

 Get inspired by the whimsical paintings of Lulie Wallace, featuring sprawling botanical still life and dreamy florals against playful wallpaper. Equally as charming are Barbara Dziadosz’s quirky screenprints.

 Engage in a little adventure today, without venturing too far from the safe haven of home (which can be crucial if you’re battling demons, or even a case of the rainy day blues).

 When you’re not totally sure where you’re headed, sometimes it helps to remember where you’ve been. You can glean a bit of insight as simply as reading your very first tweet. Do you remember where you were when you wrote it? How far have you come since then?

 In defense of DIY, a neuroscientist has proven that crafting is good for your brain, and your well being in general. Don’t hesitate to pick up that creative project you’ve abandoned on account of it being “silly” or inapplicable to “real world goals”.

 Longing for a change? You may be in need of a refresh in the wardrobe department. Removing clutter and reevaulating your style identity is something we should all check in with on the regular.

 Ready to be happy again? Here’s a list of happy-people-practices you may have seen before, but it’s worth a revisit.

 If you’re feeling stuck or anxious, sometimes all you can do is wait it out. One of my favorite phrases lately is, “the only way to get through it is to get through it.” But while you’re doing that, you can use something as simple as breath to ease the process.

That’s my round-up for now. I’ll see you guys soon.
