Happy Friday! I don’t know how the hell it came to be May already, but here it is, in all its glory… Phew! I’m en route to Las Vegas as we speak, and I’m so excited for a few days of fun. Be sure to follow me on Snapchat (gala-darling) to get a taste of the ridiculousness that occurs…
James Altucher on how minimalism brought him freedom and joy. I particularly like this line: “Emails are a suggestion but not an obligation.” And this…
I never read random articles on the Internet unless they are by people I know. Mostly I read books I love. A friend asked me, when he heard all of this, “But aren’t you afraid you’re going to miss some information?” I asked him, “What information?” 99% of information we read, we forget anyway. The best way to remember is to “DO”. Otherwise, I look at nothing online. Experiences happen when you disconnect. And I choose experiences over goods or information.

What the Scorpio full moon teaches us about love.
Some people literally cannot visualise things. Whoooooah.
When you’ve loved so fully for so long, how disorienting it must feel to have to question all of it, including your own worth, that thing we tether so tightly to men. That she’s looking inward now — and calling upon the introspective musings of the great Warsan Shire, a natural progression from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie — tells me she’s preparing to have to love herself. It’s a lesson all women need to learn, and who better to hear it from than Beyoncé.
New Orleans threw a parade for Prince and it was incredible
This man was taking upskirt photos in China, when a woman confronted him and forced him to eat his memory card!
Arianna Huffington takes sleep really seriously. I love that she packs masking tape when she travels to cover up blinking lights in hotel rooms. Blinking lights and streetlights coming through the window etc. are the bane of my existence. I need total darkness, like a vampire!
Wow, fascinating. After ‘The Biggest Loser,’ Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight. Contestants lost hundreds of pounds during Season 8, but gained them back. A study of their struggles helps explain why so many people fail to keep off the weight they lose.
