So much love for this piece by Katherine Brooks today:
Stevie Nicks’ Polaroid Self-Portraits Prove She Is The Angel Of All Our Dreams

Channeling Cindy Sherman or a less-than anonymous version of Vivian Maier, Nicks’ portraits incorporate mirrors and costumes to create different personas. Some characters look like they were plucked from a Shakespearean cabaret, others seem to distill the essence of the woman behind Fleetwood Mac, her wild hair appearing as untamed as your best friend’s. Either way, the photos provide a historic look into the memories of Nicks’ “rock star” years.

Emma Watson to men: Gender equality is your issue, too:

I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive.

Why has the word become such an unpopular one? I think it is right I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that affect my life. I think it is right that socially, I am afforded the same respect as men.

But sadly, I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to see these rights. No country in the world can yet say that they achieved gender equality. These rights are considered to be human rights but I am one of the lucky ones.

I was really drawn to these gorgeous lush watercolors by San Francisco based artist Emily Proud. 

Her work explores watercolor’s physical and transcendent qualities through abstracted depictions of the California landscape. Emily is inspired by geographical features, the environment, weather, and current events. She often paints outside or from photographs she takes in San Francisco and other places around the Bay Area and California.
