Girl Boss Extraordinaire: Rupi Kaur

By Posted on 3 Comments 1 min read 60 views

Rupi Kaur is shaking the world of poetry. Although she might not be for everyone, she doesn’t claim or try to be – I love that. Whether you enjoy her poems or not, you’ve got to admit you’d never read anything like it before. Like a breath of fresh air, her art combines visuals and rhythm in a simplicity that rejuvenates our minds.

outlook – milk and honey

Ever since reading milk and honey, I was personally blown away by the amount of wisdom and magic in such a tiny poetry book. By the time I reached the last page, I was in love with Rupi’s writing style, life outlook, and strength. And couldn’t wait for more of her poems.

At just 21, Kaur has already published three poetry books that use repetition, consonance, and alliteration to stunning effect. She understands on a visceral level something elegant about the shapes of letters, making our ubiquitous Times New Roman font surprising again by playing with its roundness, its potential for contrast. It is no surprise that each of her books has earned New York Times Bestseller notoriety.

So, it is with overwhelming admiration for her genius that I share some of my favorite poems of hers with you readers today. Enjoy!

I know, right? I want more too.

Thanks, Rupi,

In quarantine, we’re all spending a little extra time on our phones. Why not have a cute background to look at, amirite? Today, I’m sharing my favorite iPhone wallpapers as of lately.

Quick disclaimers:

  • I’m weird. I. change my wallpaper/background constantly. (If you haven’t already, check out my favorite desktop wallpapers here).
  • These wallpapers are geared for iOS iPhones, they will work on any smartphone device.

Without further ado, below are some of my favorite high-quality, pre-formatted downloadable images. (All of these pictures are from Walli, one of the apps that have been keeping me sane this quarantine.)

I hope you enjoy these iPhone wallpapers! Comment down below your favorite, and let me know if you decide to use any of them. Again, a huge shoutout to Walli for being such an incredible app.

Quality Wallpapers for Your Laptop

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 14 views

Looking at the same picture over and over again can become tiresome. After all, you’re doing a lot of important stuff on your laptop. So why not have cute wallpapers to go along with it?

Although there are billions of wallpapers available for download, it’s all about quality over quantity. It’s pretty hard to find HD images for download that are free and with enough pixels.

To reiterate: there’s just something refreshing about setting up a new image as your home screen. I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite desktop wallpapers for your computer. Not only do these look great as wallpapers, but they keep it comfortable to search for things on your desktop since they are not too busy. I know this from personal experience. And the best part: all images are available for free HD download (right-click). So, without further ado, keep reading if you’re interested in a few of my favorite wallpapers.

Disclaimer: None of the images below are mine – I got them from Google Images ✨

I hope you enjoy these backgrounds as much as I do 😍 Let me know if you make one of them your wallpaper by DM’ing @her_runway on Instagram.

Last but not least, check out some refreshing new apps for your iPhone here. There may or may not even be an app for top-quality iPhone wallpapers as well…

My Favorite iPhone Apps during Quarantine

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 20 views

We’re in lockdown (no surprise there), and I think we could all use some refreshing apps to kill time on. Since I spent some time successfully finding some great ones on my own, I’ve decided to share them with you all today. Hopefully it cures your socially-distanced boredom, too.

Keep reading if you’re interested.

WORDSCAPES.

For fellow Scrabble enthusiasts and word connoisseurs, this game is as good as “new” can get. Fly through levels after forming as many words as possible in each with the letters you’ve been given. Pretty self-explanatory, surprisingly addictive. I may or may not have to spend 0.99$ to go ad-free.

WALLI.

This app is a GEM! Get access to free HD wallpapers for your iPhone Home Screen and Lock Screen that look incredible! Many categories let you narrow down your search to find that perfect screensaver aesthetic. Sounds too good to be true, I know!

DISPO.

This app turns your phone camera into the disposable camera of the good old days. Snap your photos and wait until 9 am the next day for them to “develop.” It takes the artificiality out of the mix and allows you to be fully present. Still, the cute photo surprises the next morning are my favorite part! 

THE PATTERN.

Whether you’re interested in astrology or not, this app is cool. All you need to input is your birthday, name, and birth time to receive a comprehensive summary of your astral alignments. You can even add your friends and check your zodiac “compatibility” (of course, take any information from this application with a grain of salt 🧂)

GOPUFF. 

If you’re lucky enough to live within the range of this app’s delivery zones, congratulations: you now have access to snacks, drinks, supplies, and more in less than a half-hour! Yeah, I’m serious. I used this app way too much back in college and still do. Hopefully, it brings you joy as well.

AMONG US.

A super fun mystery game to play during the lockdown. You’re grouped with up to 9 other astronauts in a space ship, but one of you is a secret “killer.” Work together to find out who it is. If the majority vote is correct, you win! You can also enjoy this app with your friends by joining the same “rooms” as them.

TODOIST.

Who knew making lists and staying organized could be so aesthetically pleasing?

TILE.

Last but not least, if you are prone to misplacing your keys, wallet, and phone, you need a Tile! From the site: “Bluetooth-enabled devices and handy Tile app make everything findable.” You’re welcome.

I hope you enjoy these apps as much as I do! Share your thoughts in the comments below.
