We Heart It Community Spotlight: Tashina Combs

June 16, 2014
We Heart It - Tashina Combs - Hearts

We Heart It - Tashina Combs - Hearts

In our last We Heart It Community Spotlight, we featured the spectacular Marie Brudevold. Luckily, at We Heart It, there is no shortage of amazing, inspirational users, so we’re happy to introduce to you Tashina Combs, the writer behind the vegan beauty and lifestyle blog, Logical Harmony.

Our friends at I Heart Daily chatted with Tashina about her inspirations, gold spray paint and her current beauty must-haves.

We Heart It - User - Tashina Combs

How did you find out about We Heart It?
I honestly cannot even remember because I have been using it for so long—literally for years!  Between the web browser and iPhone app, I’m on the site several times a day! I use the app during my daily commute, and then hop onto the web browser at some point in the morning or evening as well. I’m seriously addicted.


What do you love about the site?

I love that it lets me easily save and share inspiring images. It’s a great way to create vision and inspiration boards for different areas of life. I also love that it’s so easy to find images that appeal to you.


Who are some of your favorite people to follow, and why?

My favorites are Lauren Cosenza, Put Your Lipstick On, and ZOVA Fitness. Each one speaks to a different side of me. Lauren has awesome beauty images, Put Your Lipstick On has great fashion and house posts, and ZOVA really keeps me motivated with my workouts!

We Heart It - Divalicious - Hearts


What types of photos inspire you to post to your page?
I love photos that make me feel good! Beautiful locations, cute animals, fresh fruit… I also really enjoy photos that are beauty and fashion related and can help inspire my own style.


Do you prefer expressing yourself through photos or words?
Both. As a blogger, I express myself through writing. However, not everything can be appropriately expressed through words. Sometimes you just need a photo.


How would you describe your aesthetic?
Girly and fun. I love pastels, pink, and florals. I also love fitness, so there’s a lot of workout-related hearts on my canvas as well.


What was the last photo you hearted and what do you love about it?
A watercolor of a fox with raw crystals all around it. I just thought it was a great representation of nature, harmony, and positive creative energy.


What kinds of creative things do you do offline in your daily life?

Offline, I do a lot of cooking, recipe creations and small DIY projects. These projects usually involve another addiction of mine—gold spray paint. Each week I publish a new recipe on my blog, Logical Harmony, so I’m constantly coming up with new recipes, trying them, and photographing them.


You’re way into beauty—any favorite products to share?

Right now, I’m really into the Sibu Beauty skincare line. Since I started using it, my skin has never looked better! Other favorites are the Babette lipstick from Lime Crime, Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced, and the nail polishes I Only Fly Private and Blush Boudoir Pink from NCLA. I love simple and natural products too, so I am rarely without cornstarch to use as a dry shampoo and coconut oil to moisturize and remove makeup.


Is there a quote or motto that sums up your feelings about life?
Gabrielle Bernstein said: “I am not the victim. I am the lighthouse.” Gabby has been a huge source of inspiration in my life and I love this quote because it’s a reminder that it’s important to rise above and always choose love over fear. We all have this amazing light inside of us—you need to let it out!

We Heart It Community Spotlight: Marie Brudevold

June 9, 2014
We Heart It - User - Marie Brudevold

We Heart It - Marie Brudevold - Hearts

In a new blog series, we’re featuring hearters whose profiles inspire us. First up: Marie Brudevold, who fills her canvas with wanderlust and wild spirit. Obviously, we love her. Right up our alley! We wanted to get to know her more, and asked our friends at I Heart Daily to ask her a few questions.

We Heart It - User - Marie Brudevold

I Heart Daily: How did you find out about We Heart It?
Marie B: I found it through a blog I followed many years ago, it was love and one big heart from me at first sight! It’s such a source for inspiration, a place where you can lose yourself in dreams and ideas, and of course share your own dreams and inspire other with your own pics. Oh, I can browse on We Heart It for hours! I’m on the site almost daily. I turn to it when I’m at home on the couch with my MacBook, looking for pictures that can describe my mood.

IHD: Who are some of your favorite people to follow, and why?
MB: Mikson, she finds the most beautiful and telling pictures in the exact same style as I like ‘em. http://weheartit.com/mikson

We Heart It - Mikson - Hearts

IHD: How would you describe your aesthetic?
MB: I’m attracted to melancholy images. When feelings are involved, when there’s a story behind a picture. But I also love art that is inspiring and happy, and I like pictures with people. I always sit and think about what the people in the pictures are doing for a living. Who they are, what they’re thinking.

IHD: What was the last photo you hearted and what do you love about it?
MB: Oh, that’s… My own, haha. (http://weheartit.com/entry/114030920/via/supermarie) I love the beauty of it, the light and the magic, made by our Earth.

IHD: What kinds of creative things do you do offline?
MB: I take a lot of pictures, mostly for my blog www.supermarie.no, and I love to decorate my home. I also go for walks in the mountains or the forest–Norway has so many places to go for beautiful walks in the nature, and that’s where I’m the most creative.

IHD: Is there a quote or motto that sums up your feelings about life?
MB: Don’t count your days, make your days count.

Girl Power

April 29, 2014
Girl Power on We Heart It

Girl Power on We Heart It

Kick sexism out the door.  Women are super, and we believe that in every woman there is a wonder woman. We Heart It joins you in celebrating what makes females fierce.

When thirteen year old Australian surfer Olive Bowers made waves after she complained that the girl surfers in surf mags were pictured not for their wave shredding ability, but for wearing shreds of bikinis, she caught our attentionWe know that stupid attitudes about girls aren’t limited to surfing, so we want to recognize the talent of women everywhere and all they do.

At We Heart it we asked inspiring, empowered women for their take on what it means to be fiercely female.

I have battled this my whole life. You can’t ever give up or they win. When they see that you won’t give up that’s when they are forced to take you seriously and that is when change begins. When you show people that you are not going away and you aren’t going to back down from what you know is right, that will inspire other women to do the same. It’s the rock that starts the ripple and before you know it you have a whole movement.  —  Keala Kennelly,  big wave surfer

Be great every single day, be fearless, be kind, ignore the jerks. The rest will fall into place. Don’t let the noise of other people’s insecurity and anger slow you down. Block it out and keep moving. —  Jennifer Romolini, editor in chief, HelloGiggles

Find something you love, work hard at it, harder than you ever thought you could, but not for anyone else other than you. —  Rachel Platten, singer-songwriter

So, what makes you feel empowered? What mantra do you live by? Channel your inner superhero and make a creative collection with a girl power theme. What makes you feel great or strong, what are you awesome at, or who inspires you to take on your next challenge?  What’s your take on girl power?

Besides, slaying sexism builds muscles.

Call it out, ladies!

Twitter Account Issues

April 23, 2014

In our ever-connected online world, cyber attacks have become one of the unfortunate realities. Today, We Heart It’s technical team discovered that we were one of several applications impacted by a hacker using connected Twitter accounts to send out falsified Tweets. This attack was reported to have begun several days ago in Australia.

Earlier today, as a precautionary measure we temporarily disabled access to We Heart It via Twitter accounts while we investigated the incident. This access has now been restored.

It appears that only a small fraction of We Heart It’s users were impacted by the “spam” hack and at this time, we have no indication that any of our users’ personal information was compromised as a result of this attack.

We sincerely regret that this incident occurred. We are working diligently, internally as well as with Twitter, to investigate the root cause and will provide further updates as more information becomes available.

If you have any questions or would like to get in contact with us, please don’t hesitate to reach out via our contact form.

 

Thank you,

The We Heart It Team
