Art by Dave Stevens.

Is There Really A Beauty Myth? I love this piece about Naomi Wolf & feminism.

This apartment is really for the ultimate Disney lover!

I wish I looked this sexy when I was doing my laundry!

Sarah Wilson writes about how to really have a holiday.

Fooducate is my new favourite blog! Here, they interview a food sociologist. Check out It’s Not About Nutrition.

Jessica & Elizabeth are back! OH YES. You know who I’m talking about! I don’t even know how I feel about this! Sweet Valley Twins Are Back & Much More Adult…

Two lessons I took from Eat Pray Love the movie. That bit about smiling in your liver? I have started smiling while I do my morning meditation & it feels so amazing! It’s just a little change but what a difference!

Steve Pavlina on attention. This is a good piece for working out where you should (“should”) be putting your attention.

Read about Yoko Ono’s wish trees & then make one yourself!

If you’re interested in the routines of Leo Babauta & Tim Ferriss, you should watch this video!

Sam posted an excellent Drake remix. (He hates Drake! I don’t! We both love this!)

Sex on the Run? No, We Parked is such a nice story! I love it!

CONGRATULATIONS to David Dallas for winning best hip-hop album for Something Awesome at 2010 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards! 100% deserved & totally proud! If you don’t have a copy of Something Awesome in your iTunes, you’re missing out. Get on it!

How To Start Your Own Country trailer. This movie looks amazing! How fantastic! Mystic Medusa asks: if you had a country, what would it be like? (I like her idea of dream analysis on every corner, & no working during Mercury retrograde!)

Your bronzer needs to sit under, not on, your cheeks. True that!

Emily (who I love!) posted gorgeous pictures of the Parker Palm Springs hotel, along with their motto… “We believe in the American country club experience: mixed doubles, a long steam, and a stiff cocktail. We believe in inner beauty. But, do what you can on the outside. We believe in old-world etiquette and new age simplicity. We believe you can swim right after you eat. We believe we should trust those seeking enlightenment and doubt those who claim to have found it. We believe the earth is three-quarters water, and your body is three-quarters water, and… this is purely coincidence. We believe in good sport as well as fitness: P├ętanque and Pastis, Pimms Cup and Croquet, Snooker and single malt whiskey. We believe you are only young once… but you can be immature forever.” FANTASTIC! LET’S GO!

Did you see Luxirare’s travel bag? Are you KIDDING me?! God, she’s good.

Arielle posted some behind-the-scenes video from our Olsenboye shoot! My video is coming soon!

Just got hitched? Congratulations! Not feeling so good? It’s okay! Kat from Rock ‘N Roll Bride wrote how to beat the post-wedding blues just for you!

I like 31 things I’ve learned in 31 years.

I love the style of this!

Helen ( ) sent me this movie about Courtney Love! (Featuring Karl Lagerfeld!)

I saw Grace Potter & the Nocturnals on Ellen the other day, they are amazing!

Kanye West’s movie trailer… Looks amazing & is apparently in the Oscar race!

Black Keys!

That’s all for this week! Have the best weekend, get some sunshine on your face!
