Things I Love...Whenever.

Yeah yeah, I haven't been great about posting these on Thursday, but life is all about taking risks and breaking rules, right?

--------------

The Most Beautiful Suicide.  Apparently this photo/story is quite old, but I'd never seen it before. Very moving and haunting.

The world's population hit 7 billion.  What's your number? (Thanks Alice!)

I loved all of Betsey J's Halloween posts, but especially these Halloween Inspired Cocktails and Mocktails. Yummy!

I was turned on to these watches through Sam of Young People in Love.  I think this would be perfect for me, who is allergic to every conceivable type of metal (including the metal in watch fasteners).

Creative writing for dummies.  I never write fiction but this guide could come in handy should I try.

Check out these awesome photos from the NatGeo archives!

My friend, sponsor, and photographer Justine shared Donna's story, about a little girl with an aggressive brain tumor. It's long, but I read the entire thing in one sitting.  And totally cried my eyes out.  Being a childhood cancer survivor myself, and having several friends who died as children from cancer, many of whom had the same spirit and tenacity as Donna, I really connected with this story. Here is the first post - you can move through each post chronologically using the "Donna's Cancer Story" section on the right-hand side of the page.

Cutest thing I've seen all week.

50 Hilarious Things that Siri Says.

Lauren has shared this, but I think it's just awesome. Out of Print Clothing.

Scarf tutorials? Yes please!

Be a more productive writer.

Pretty sure my husband would love to see me in one of these 7 Geeky Dresses.

Confession: After seeing that last article, I totally bought this dress.

And finally: I go home today barring no cancellations or delays!!!!1!!1!


What are you loving this fine Friday?

  1. I took both of those writing articles! I need that Star Wars dress, I was the 5,198,954,430th person on Earth and I want a baby dolphin now.

  3. Wow. That story of the most beautiful suicide is definitely moving.

    As an owner of one of those watches from Meggie's Love, I do have to say they are AMAZING. And so worth it.

    Love the geeky dresses!

    And have a safe trip home today! Weather here is beautiful, so getting into Maine shouldn't be any trouble!
