Carousel — Week Ending 28th August 2009

Friday Friday Friday! Here we go!

WikiFashion is the fantastic new project of one inspired nonpareil! Join! Contribute! Enjoy!

Ever wondered what the differences are between Haute & Low Virgo? If you don’t know… now you know. Additionally, I would like to give a shout out to all my friends who fall within the realms of Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius & Capricorn! Please don’t think I love you any less because you are not Virgos! I just link the Virgo stuff because it is most interesting to me. Mystic Medusa writes about all the signs with equal fervour — check her out!

The Sheats Goldstein residence is pretty rad.

This is my new favourite page: the ASPCA adoptable dogs listing. Such cuties!

£200,000 & 51 operations turn a mother of three into Queen Nefertiti… Um, really? This is quite shocking to me.

Her transformation began more than 20 years ago after she decided that in a past life she had lived as Queen Nefertiti.

During that time Nileen Namita has spent £200,000 on her face in order to turn herself into a living sculpture of the ancient Egyptian.

The mother of three has had 51 cosmetic surgery operations – including eight nose jobs, three chin implants, one eyebrow lift, three facelifts, six mini facelifts, two lip surgeries, five eye surgeries and 20 minor tweaks – in her efforts to recreate herself in the image of the ‘Beauty of the Nile’.

This is not safe for work: Nakedbooth. Thanks Violet! You always find the best stuff.

If you’re going to be in New York City during fashion week in September, come along to the Indepedent Fashion Bloggers Dress Up Soiree! It’s on Monday the 14th of September, & as well as dressing up & meeting a whole lot of rad, intelligent people, there’s going to be a panel discussion called Evolving Influence: The Future Of Fashion Media. I have been invited to speak, along with Susie Bubble, Wendy Brandes, Crosby Noricks, Helen Zhu, Jessica Schroeder, Tricia Royal, Geri Hirsch & Kathryn Finney. It’s going to be a fantastic event, I can’t wait to meet everyone & babble on about my favourite subject! YAY! We’d love to see you there, so write it in your diary & be sure to RSVP!

Sorry I Missed Your Party is so great. This is how I discovered it: The 2nd Worst Rave I’ve Ever Been To. I love this comment:

I’ve been to several worse than this. At least there is a working sound system.

Interested in knowing what the 99 Most Influential Style Blogs are? I’m ranked at number 30, which is extremely flattering. I am so thrilled to be included, wow! Thank you!

Stung by the Perfect Sting — anonymity on the internet, cowardice etc. Interesting stuff!

The reason some girls stay single… Thanks Evelin!

Songs From High School! Oh, yes! Funny people write about the songs they used to love. This, about Counting Crows, resonates strongly. Aahahahah.

Sooo, as my man and I serenaded each other with “Sullivan Street”, amazed that we both knew all the words after all these years, I realized that, today, to me, Adam Duritz’s voice might be one of the most annoying in history. But to my 13-year old self, he was a poet. His voice filled with all the sorrow, angst and all around whininess that 13 year old girls have. He sounds like an insecure girl who was growing out her short hair-cut. He sounds like a busload of chlorinated swim team kids.

Augnablik is a beautiful photoblog shot by a young girl from Iceland. Merci beaucoup, Valborg! (I love your name!)

These prints of Hindu deities are so adorable & make me smile! As always, Sri finds the cutest things! She is like the genius magpie of the internet!

Gary Vaynerchuk is one of the most dynamic speakers I’ve ever seen. His book, Crush It! comes out soon, & it’s all about cashing in on your passion & learning how to hustle, baby. You can read a sample chapter here… & it’s good.

Anna Wintour forever!

Have a brill weekend!
