Carousel — Week Ending 2nd November 2007

Or as I like to call it, an orgiastic link-fest! Happy Friday! Who needs work, anyway?!

Okay, not to toot my own horn too much, but this morning I woke up to the most wonderful surprise! iCiNG is a finalist in the Best Australian/New Zealand blog category at The 2007 Weblog Awards! Voting is open NOW & I would be overwhelmed with swoon-y goodness if you cast a vote for me!

How to Have an Amazing Day from Craig Harper. Nice tips, baby!

Style tips from Lucia Van Der Post & Times Online.

Write a positive thought & Mount Franklin will donate $1 to National Breast Cancer Research…

Atsuko Kudo — amazing latex couture. Check out the gloves, mmmmm…

My friend Laurel makes wonderfully atmospheric, haunting radio. Click her name for creepy noise!

Help raise money for the National Eating Disorders Association by going nuts on their auctions! There are a lot of amazing things up on offer, like a trip to Tokyo for a week, an iPod nano, a weekend in Malibu… I’d be happy with any of those things! The auctions opened yesterday & go for another month. Good luck!

How To Work Like The Masters from LifeRemix. Super-good. It’s a compendium of great tips from the best self-development blogs the internet has to offer!

Freez is a brand spanking new online store selling Australian labels at fabulous prices. They have one of my favourites, Mink Pink, who you may know as the designer of my oversized New York t-shirt, which incidentally is one of the softest, most comfortable things I’ve ever owned. Yay!

Savoring Life’s Little Indulgences & 10 Effective Ways to Increase Your Energy Levels from the perennially featured on Carousel favourite, Dumb Little Man!

Face Hunter goes to the coolest parties, seriously. This one for Gareth Pugh is no exception. Ooh la la!

Knitted bondage suits, anyone? (From Sex & Blogs, & probably NSFW… though I guess it depends on your boss!)

Traits of Stress-Hardy, Resilient People from Stress To Power. It’s a pretty interesting list & the best thing is that you can make these traits your own if you want to!

Skelliewag is a blogger’s blogger — that is, she blogs about blogging. Kind of like Darren Rowse of Problogger fame. Anyway, she is an expert & her blog is fabulous. She recently posted A Penny For Your Thoughts?, which is essentially her taking reader requests. So if you have a question about blogging, Skellie is your gal! (She also posted 110 Resources For Creative Minds which is fantastic.)

Viva Las Vegoose from Stylesightings. I love Stylesightings. Every post is a visual feast. Lots of interesting style on display… as you would imagine, being that it’s set in Las Vegas!

The Secret to Self Loving from a new blog I’ve recently discovered called Think Simple. Be Decisive. (Hint: it mentions gratitude, so if that’s not a reason to participate in Things I Love Thursday, then I don’t know what is!)

A use for old lightbulbs, or as they say, “Ampoules usagées récup, esprit cabane, faire du beau avec de la recup”! I couldn’t agree more.

Tokyo Undressed is a great blog, but of course, it does involve nudity so perhaps you shouldn’t look at this first link at work. Here are two very cute Hallowe’en costumes, & a lovely girl in a mask — & she’s not naked. Beautiful & whimsical photos.

A giant girl goes for a walk.
Origami crane mobile for relaxation!

Also… tell me about your favourite sites! Where do you spend most of your time online? I am always looking for new eyeball fodder — hook me up!
