Carousel: Week Ending 26th March 2010

HAPPY FRIDAY my lovelies!

THXTHXTHX: Leah Dieterich’s mother always told her to write thank you notes. So she does. To everything. thxthxthx is her daily exercise in gratitude.

Shae from EverythingStyle takes fantastic photos!

I love Kris Atomic’s 10 Things posts.

Want to win a cruise to Greece? Me too! Enter! How about Mexico? YES!

I want a Virgoan power shower. (Of course.)

Tamera writes about the need for ritual as it pertains to weddings & daily life. So true!

If you drink like a man, you might end up looking like one. A PSA from the U.K. “The campaign has been devised by the Drug and Alcohol Service for London. Research by the charity revealed that two out of five women are worried about the physical impact of drink and only a third about health risks.”

An inside view of Lynn Yaeger’s apartment, & her collecting tendencies!

Tokyo’s Odaiba Water Illumination Show is off the charts.

100 Dates is quite an interesting little project…

Getting married? Vexed at the thought of what to wear? Why not get inspired by Alexander McQueen?

Sarah Wilson: always good. (That should be her slogan.) Learn how to work your dorky quirk (featuring pictures of my friend Jo & her site Eye Heart Glasses!) & Sunday Life: in which I be thoroughly me. I like the lesson in that one!

I just found out that aforementioned Jo & her man Thomas have a music blog called atmos. Trust me when I say they have excellent, discerning taste!

“Even though I am sometimes perceived as a bitch or a witch, the office atmosphere I cultivate is nothing like the cultural stereotype of striving women clawing each other to death to get the queen bee’s job. Women have been taught that, in order to get ahead, we have to be secretive & plotting & manipulative, because a straightforward route to the top hasn’t always existed for us, & in many industries it still doesn’t. But I don’t believe in playing into these stereotypes. We don’t have to stab each other in the back, we don’t have to take things personally & break down when we’re criticized, & we don’t have to advance at each others’ expense.” — Kelly Cutrone

Hi-Lo Astro: Haute Aries — Low Aries makes me laugh. I know a lot of Aries’s’s’s’s!

Typefaces as dog breeds. Hee!

Can we all wear hoods like this forever & ever?

I am in love with these knits. Thanks Kris Atomic!

1000 Awesome Things: #549 School Field Trip Day. Man, I loved going on school trips as a kid! As I was reading that piece, I also had a flashback to how much I enjoyed orienteering! It was like being encouraged by your teachers to go on a treasure hunt. So great!

Home. Thanks to You Are Remarkable & Carl Sagan.

HAHA! When Do They Sleep? works out the likely hours someone snoozes based on their Twitter activity. I sleep between 1am & 7am, otherwise known as 6 hours a night. Yep! Sounds about right!

I think the PSFK conference in NYC is going to be pretty amazing.

Choose your own Twitter adventure! :DDDDDD !

Superheroes redrawn as Mr. Men & Little Miss characters… & you can buy them on shirts. Mr. Bat is my pick. (Of course.)

I want to buy one of these for Hank. So much!


Some little interviews from the IFB conference!
