I LOVE THIS!

December 7, 2015

As we head into the dark winter months, GUTS is launching a new series about the things that bring joy and light into our hearts. We want to know your Top 5: What are your go-to things when you need to cheer yourself up? “Things” can be anything—a nail polish colour, a Vine, or a dog on the street (pics, please).

Pitch us your Top 5 at submit@gutsmagazine.ca.

Here’s Rebecca, a GUTS editrix, with some things that bring her to life.

1. The Instagram account shaiamiel
I love my fro SO passionately and it took me SO long so learn to treat it well and I love to witness other people on their own curl voyages. HOT TIP FOR YOUR CURLS: Only condition the bottom ~2 inches of your hair, NEVER BRUSH IT, only comb it when it’s wet, never wash the conditioner out, any time you want to talk curly hair on the twit I AM HERE FOR YOU

Top image is R's hair as it grows out of her head, bottom image is a single hair on a desk and it is very curly.
This is my hair, I can grow snakes out of my head. Ignore my chipping mani.

2. These menstrual nail art decals
Which I OWN because I bought them on the Internet the last time the editorial team was together in Banff (awwwee)

3. This bubble bath
Because it is relatively cheap and helps me in my long term #adult goal of always smelling like lavender

4. Mannequin head dances
This genre of video makes me laugh so hard that I drool (I don’t usually drool very easily) PROMISE me you’ll watch the linked vid AT LEAST twice in a row

5. Jason Momoa’s eyebrow
You know which one
