Carousel: Week Ending 14th May 2010

Who can say no to a good infographic? Not me!


Maddie told me about Stereomood & I am totally loving it! You basically pick something from a cloud which corresponds to how you are or where you’d like to be — energetic, dressing up, bohemian, driving route 66, feel like crying, foreplay (!) — & it spits out a playlist that you can stream.

The Cool Hunter is fantastic. The Power of Color & On Top of The World – The Rise of The Observation Deck are great.

Entire Dog Lost, Delta Offers $200 Credit. You have to be kidding me.

Erin Fetherson Feels A ‘Natural Synergy’ With Juicy Couture. Did you know she’s working as a creative consultant for the company that popularised the “fashion tracksuit”? I think their collaborations are going to be really interesting. I said this on Twitter a while ago but their aesthetic sensibility — especially in their advertising (shot by Tim Walker) — is so whimsical & frothy, which is totally Erin. So I think it’s going to be a success.

Wow. Barbie Vomits Pink on Paris. Yes, it’s a Barbie-themed hotel room in Paris’ Plaza Athénée. I want to take photos in there so badly!

Always wise, Sarah Wilson writes about people who irritate her.

Another smart woman: Yuli. Startup Lessons: 10 Signs You Are Alive.

My lovely friend Emily from Wildfox Couture did a 24 hours in the life where she goes to the Madonna Inn (hello, jealous!) & spent some time by the ocean!

The Ten Most Beautiful Places I Visited In New Zealand. Aw! Kiwi pride. You should look at this if you’re planning on visiting NZ any time soon. People often email me asking where I recommend they go & I don’t really know, my knowledge of NZ is not very extensive… ! (Um, sorry!)

The Joy Junket Manifesto is good stuff.

Are you in New York? Do you like to get naked? Do you like to paint? If so, you should go to the Naked Painting Party later this month!

Ben Heine’s illustrations are excellent.

How to Make Visa Obey Your Every Desire: The Credit Card Concierge Experiment! Hahah!

Okay, that’ll about do it! Have a fantastic weekend…
