My name is Alice. This is a collection of images I like. (◕‿◕✿)

montanoso:

hair! (and new top) (well old, I went thrifting)

I found this print as well, and I didn’t know who the work was by because it was in a frame and covered, but it looked so magical and reminded me so much of the Grand Budapest Hotel that I bought it. Turns out it’s Joseph Cornell :-)

"   We praise people for being “naturally” smart, too, “naturally” athletic, and etc. But studies continue to show, as they have for some time now, that it is generally healthier to praise schoolchildren for being hardworking, than for being naturally gifted. We know now that to emphasize a child’s inherent ability places pressure on that child to continue to be accidentally talented, which is something that is hard for anyone to control. When the children who are applauded for their natural skills fail, they are shown to take the failure very personally. After all, the process of their success has always seemed mysterious and basic and inseparable from the rest of their identity, so it must be they who are failing as whole people. When students are instead complimented and rewarded for their effort and improvement, they tend to not be so hard on themselves. When they fail, they reason, “Well, I’ll work harder next time.” They learn that they are capable of success, rather than constantly automatically deserving of it, and they learn simultaneously that they are bigger and more complex than their individual successes or failures.   "

The concept is simple. Take a blank sheet with nothing but the basic outline of a pinup girl and illustrate a unique scene around her.”

This is fucking amazing.

Sophie Harris Taylor- Keaton Henson

I think Taylor has captured Keaton Henson as poetically as he is.

Daily Mail reporter lies to food bank, steals money from the state, and from people who legitimately need it, all in the name of writing a smear article about food banks.
Mind blown.
