“She does a killer red lip. I’ll give that girl credit. She can whip a red lip on like nobody else, and it’s amazing. Even if we’re working out, she’ll have on this gorgeous red lip. She’s not human!…. You know, I think I would end up having the red lip from ear to ear. I’m not as graceful with a red lip as she is.” — Karlie Kloss, It appears that your cut influenced the celebrity crowd, too—including your friend Taylor Swift. Has she taught you any good beauty tips? (x)



“Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’” — Lena Dunham (x)

Why I love her and why you should too.

“I’d invite my girlfriends over and we would cook dinner and play pool. I’m really bad at playing pool, but I love it. Have you ever had something that you love doing but you’re terrible at it? That’s pool for me. But people love playing with me ‘cause I’m horrible at it, and they always win.” — Taylor Swift on how she would spend a free evening. (x)



“Silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums. Never give anyone an excuse to say that you’re crazy.” — Taylor Swift (via tayloralisonlyrics)



“Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place.” — (via m-wol)



“Who cares if it’s pop, country or polka music? The song is a smash. Taylor Swift is a superstar, a superstar who has done more for the expansion of the country music audience than anyone else before her or since.” — Shania Twain’s manager (via captivatedtaylor)



“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realise that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so.” — TAYLOR SWIFT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN (via soulpank)



“I wanna define my life on my own terms.” — Taylor Swift on her priorities now (x)



“It takes a long time to figure out who you are and where you fit in in the world. I’m putting myself in all these awkward situations where the dancers are incredible, and I’m having fun with it, but not fitting in. They’re doing the most beautiful things, and I’m being embarrassingly bad at it. It shows you to keep doing you, keep being you, keep trying to figure out where you fit in in the world, and eventually you will” — Taylor on Shake it off music video (x)



“I’ve had every part of my life dissected — my choices, my actions, my words, my body, my style, my music. When you live your life under that kind of scrutiny, you can either let it break you, or you can get really good at dodging punches. And when one lands, you know how to deal with it. And I guess the way that I deal with it is to shake it off.” — Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone about ‘Shake it off’ (x)
