Hey Mishka Loves… ♥

February 9, 2015

Welcome to Hey Mishka Loves—the semi-weekly link round-up of stylish, festive content from my favorite blogs and morning reads. This pre-Valentine’s Day round-up of links has a whole lotta love, from dreamy French lullabies to scientific proof that you should marry your BFF.

You’ll also find creative fuel for new projects and work-space-arranging, DIY, and some thoughts on appreciating overwhelm. Because, let’s face it: being a creative hopeless romantic is completely overwhelming.

 I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t instruct you to listen to this dreamy playlist while you’re going through the rest of these links.

 If you feel like being overwhelmed with life is sucking your energy (and maybe even preventing you from enjoy this blog?!) review these wise words on the divinity of being up to your neck in sh*t to deal with. Nisha always gets it right.

 If you’re staring into your closet each morning trying to find something to wear as your weight adjustment goals remain unsatisfied, you may be staring at the solution. Need tips on getting rid of clothes? Ask a fashion editor.

 Don’t forget to take care of #1. Fall in love with yourself this Valentine’s Day, and get yourself into bed. Naked.

 Career porn: three fashion industry rockstars who started out as assistants (and why they would never trade that underdog time for anything). Also, read up on a range of email habits and best practices from successful women like Sophia Amoruso and Nina Garcia.

 Feeling whimsical? Learn to make a gorgeous display of pressed flower petals. Projects like this can keep you from getting the blues during the more blah months of winter.

 Your pre-Valentine’s prep should include this smart skin regimen. I already try for the water & lemon each morning, but I can’t wait to try that homemade mask and the green tea ice cubes.

 What actually makes you want to get in someone’s pants?

 If you’ve ever wanted to start your own art collective or artist’s community, check this out.

 Your homework this week: Get some serious sleep, become a morning person, refresh your work space, and explore some new mediums.

 Just in time for V-day, a super sexy lace bralette DIY. Wear it for your lover, or wear it for yourself. Or, start an Etsy shop full of ’em!

 Should you marry your BFF? Also, if you’re super single this Feb 14th (or any time of the year), you might appreciate this.

Leave your favorite links in the comments! I’m always up for a good read during lunch break.
