Carousel — Week Ending 26th October 2007

Happy Friday!

I wrote a little piece on kissing a while back, but for those of you who want more information on one of the best activities ever, Violet Blue has released a DRM-free ebook that is exactly what you’re after! How To Kiss is a measly $10 & while I haven’t read it (I consider myself a pro, ha!), I am willing to bet that it is worth every penny.

Serviced by Steven Meisel. I do love me a bit o’ Meisel.

I am really interested in reading Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster, even moreso now that I’ve seen this on Boing Boing.

For prospective (or current) bloggers… Bloggers: Be FOCUSED, ORIGINAL, and full of fiery PASSION! (I like this guy’s attitude. He is very enthusiastic.)

Things to say when someone has broken up with you. Take heed!

Trinny & Susannah to the rescue with more advice on dressing for body types. Take it with a grain of salt, but there are some good ideas here.

Can Taste Be Taught? from the New York Times Style magazine.

How to solve an ugly wood panelling problem, from the ourbedrooms community on Livejournal. Just paint it white! Check out the difference.

Polar bears love dogs, ’tis true! Thanks, No Impact Man! (I always picture a guy with his underpants over his clothes when I read his name.)

Say Bonjour to a New You This Winter : A French Woman’s Guide to Fashion from StyleBites! This is totally cute.

How to Wake Up Feeling Totally Alert from Steve Pavlina.

I’m on a panel of judges (along with Andrae Gonzalo from Project Runway, the designers of Madison Harding & Stephanie Lichten) for a contest at My It Things where you can win $3000 just by writing about fashion or style! There is more information here & I encourage you to enter! $3000 is nothing to thumb your nose at, you know!

Fans of James & August in Australia can get $10 off orders over $100 using the code “AUS07” during checkout!

For some reason, all these photos from Los Angeles Fashion Week are totally captivating. Who said LA doesn’t have style? Granted, there are a lot of short skirts & brown legs, but who cares? I love some of these outfits a lot.

If you, too, are keen on wearing pearls somewhere other than around your neck, & ankles just aren’t cutting it for you, why not do as Lacquer does & wear them in your hair? (Beautiful. Another hair accessory that would complement a beehive perfectly!)

David Lynch + Christian Louboutin = sweet, fetishy children.

Beautiful pictures of food in Japan from she who eats. I don’t know how she manages to make it all look so appealing but… she does!
