1. I love those Biore pore pack thingies. I get strange, perverse pleasure from seeing the hard little gooblets that vacate my pores. (Wait, too much information?!!) Check this gorgeous-cute graphic-tutorial from The First Lime on how to make your own. Will have to try this! Also, how cute is this girl’s blog? Can you believe she’s only 14?!!


2. I love this post by Sarah Wilson about eating well whilst traveling. I love hearing about how people look after themselves whilst traveling, as it’s something that I always struggle with (Jess Ainscough at The Wellness Warrior always asks people this question in her wonderful Foodie Friday sections).

I am currently planning a trip next year. (‘Planning’ may be too strong a word at this stage, more like ‘formulating an idea that will soon be made solid into plan-form but at this stage still remains a glorious idea in my head’). I want to go to Europe for three months. Something that has been mildly worrying me (yes, even during this formulation phase, which is just ridiculous!) is the fact that I won’t be able to have my green smoothies every morning.

I’ve been thinking about getting a personal-portable-blender-thingy, because they sound awesome. Or, you know, I could just chill out, relax, do the best with what I have access to whilst traveling, and follow Sarah’s lead a bit… Check it out.

3. Check out this Summer soup or kesäkeitto, as it is called in Finnish, over on Pure Vegetable.

Oh, and while you’re there, drool over the amazing fig tart and frozen pecan pudding!

4. As a lover of language, who is frequently known to use larger words than necessary (much to the chagrin of her boyfriend), I squealed a little when I found these graphic representations of big-long words courtesy of the Project Twins. How I long to be multivagant (wandering over hills or mountains)…

Hot tip: Try calling the jack-ass in the cubicle next to you an Ultracrepidarian – A person who gives opinions and advice on matters outside of one’s knowledge (as depicted above). That’ll show him!

5. Brainpickings.org has got a list of 9 books to make you a better reader and writer. I’ve read two of them (On Writing, by Stephen King, and The War of Art, by Steve Pressfield), and I recommend them both highly. Will need to scoot my online-butt over to the Book Depository to order a few more!

One of my favourite Pressfield quotes is this one:

Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.

Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates the strength of Resistance. Therefore, the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul.”

His book is awesome, and I intend to write a post on it in the future.

Hope you are feeling the love today!
