“A person who won’t read
has no advantage
over one who can’t read.”
I read a lot of blogs, like a lot of blogs- and news sites.
They aren’t all fashion and beauty related. I love reading blogs about technology (iPhone 8/X/finallyAppleisupdatingthedarnthingyall), politics, cooking, pop culture, classic literature, language and everything in between! Btw if you need any #newread suggestions I have your back.
Across all the blogs I read though, some of my favourite posts are round-up post! I know I just did one about my summer and Instagram, but there is SO much news around the world that I couldn’t stop myself from posting a general round up too. Let’s check out the news around the world together!
1: First stop: HOUSTON.
I can not express how heart breaking the news coming out of Houston is. There are SO many people in need, who have lost EVERYTHING. I’m not even going to ask if you can imagine- because we can’t. There is something we can do- give. Give from what we are #blessed with to those who are in need. There are so many ways to give but here’s my favourite (their CEO doesn’t make millions and they don’t just minister to the physical, but also to the spiritual):
I know across America people are struggling. Being able to give $1 might not seem like a lot. $1 multiplied by dozens of people though adds up quickly. Will you be part of that? Money aside the BEST thing you can do in this situation is:
“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thess. 5:17
2: On the lighter side: Let’s talk Taylor Swift.
Ugh. If you know me, you know I’ve never been a fan. Personally, it’s cause she claimed to be “country” but my “country” isn’t this diluted poppy stuff that I feel really started with her. Hey, everyone has their personal preference! In case you haven’t been online at all: Taylor Swift released a new song. People have a lot of feelings about this:
I’ll be honest. The new song is catchy- as catchy as “I‘m Too Sexy for My Shirt.” (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself on that one.) On the Kim K. thing: bullying is never cool- even if it’s hypothetical, and this does look probable. Everyone has an image that they portray- famous people above all. Taylor, you do you babe, you do you.
3: Back to the serious: North Korea.
This blog is NOT about politics, nor am I about to make it. This is world news craziness though! North Korea has fired missiles over Japan– a US ally. If you don’t think this is news, check again. You definitely want to keep your eye on this one!
4: BONUS: Anna Wintour
This didn’t happen this week; it’s Anna Wintour though and she’s timeless. (Plus you need an upper after some of the above and I have to do something about style.) Have you watched her answer 73 questions with Vogue? No? Click that link!
