Post image for Recycled Book Keepsake

Growing up, I was never really one to keep a diary or journal. My mom would always buy me blank notebooks, but I would use those to sketch or doodle instead of writing down my secrets. Over the years, I have acquired many sketchbooks and I have stored away many drawings in all of them. They all seem to be in different places though — some are back at my childhood home in Florida, a few are at the foot of my bed, and then there are the random ones that I find in old purses or in my car. Each time I find one, I look back through it and get inspired by my past sketches.Read More

I've done this also, only in the artists community it's called "altered" books. First time was for an altered books show at my local library that was put on by the library and local's an interesting concept. If you have a hard time like I did to cut-out or re-vamp a book, go to the book sales section of your local library, there are tons of books out there that should never been printed (I'm also a bibliophile, with over 2 (literally) tons of books, 1st editions etc, so I don't take destroying books lightly) Not only do you get to be creative, you also help your local library!

What a creative project! I, too, have never been much of a diary type of girl, but I keep a quote journal where I write down lines from poems or songs I love, collect thoughts from books or articles I read, and even sometimes add some of my own writings (but only sometimes). Maybe this is what I should do for the next one!

Post image for Trend Alert: Delicate Rings

For a while I was all about the big, chunky rings — changing them up depending on my mood, or piling them on to make a statement.  Lately, though, I’ve been wearing the same thin, delicate rings on a daily basis.  It makes sense this time of year when you just don’t want any extra weight on your body!  Read More

I love that since these are so delicate you can wear more than on e and it doesn’t look overdone. Source: Trend Alert: Delicate Rings | Free People Blog I totally agree with Meg, besides, delicate jewel is pure and simple.

Post image for Short Hair Styling Tips From FP Girls

I have long hair but in the summertime I’m always tempted to chop it off…in this heat, shorter locks seem so much lighter and cooler.  The last time I cut my hair short was years ago and I never knew how to style it, so I’ve kept it long ever since.  But I always envy those girls who pull it off so well — for example, Anja Rubik’s perfectly tousled locks in our July book. It seemed like the perfect time to get some styling tips from our home office girls who rock the shorter hair — those of you with short hair, share your tips in the comments!Read More

It's really nice to find a short haired related post! I have a pixie haircut and I'd love to see how would you style it! You should do more about it please! It was really refreshing :)

Just cut my hair short and running low on inspiration, so this post was perfect! Really loving the last one, can't wait to try it!

Post image for Best Foot Forward: Find Your Perfect Pair Of Shoes & Socks

This week we are relaunching our shoe shop with an incredible selection of shoes for fall — and you can’t have shoes without socks! I think socks are one of my favorite articles of clothing… there’s nothing better than a brand new, incredibly soft, cushion-y pair of socks that makes you feel like you’re walking on a cloud.  I never used to think much about styling different socks and shoes, but finding that perfect match can really make an outfit come together.  Read More

I like the Crusader Ankle Boot.

ummm if I could wear a new pair of socks everyday, that would be awesome! There is nothing better than new socks.

Post image for What Your Handwriting Says About You

I’m always so interested to see the handwriting of people around me. We all learn how to construct the alphabet in a similar way, yet we each take our own approach to creating every letter; word; phrase, making our handwriting completely unique to ourselves only.Read More

I love handwriting. It celebrates uniqueness :)
Sophie Struckmeyer -Jul 16, 2013, 7:07AM
Maybe you should see if you can have people in-store write what free means to them, and choose a few to put up on the site! xx

Large portable cord cables like that will also have quite a bit of rubber jacket protection against daily abuse from being dragged across pavement and run over by large industrial trucks. Talk to your supplier about the type of cable you need and how it will be used on a day to day basis to make sure it has enough protection to last as long as it's supposed to in the field.

I've been really into goddesses lately. This is the perfect wake up in the morning stretch to get the blood flowing, maybe combined with a five minute headstand to reverse the blood flow and to contrast the feeling of being sturdy like a mountain :)
