This weeks discoveries:

  • Great Salon article, “We Are What We Buy
  • Makeup Alley: I’ve been a member of this site for years and always check it before buying a product. It has saved me so much money, time, and bad experiences.
  • Boss of You video interview. I love these women so much and their book, The Boss of You even more. What really struck me is that they make a point of asking you to define what success means to you. What it looks like. Make it personal.
  • The wonderful, female run company, See Jane Work, is having a private 3 day sale on everything (and I’d buy everything!). Just enter “private” upon check out.
  • LA Times article on Guerrilla Gardening in LA.
  • And lastly, some movies I’ve recently enjoyed (and wasn’t expecting to – they all surprised me): The Orphanage, Lars and the Real Girl, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

    I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading Hygge House. I love the whole concept of Hygge and am always trying to understand what it really means ever since visiting Denmark a few years ago. My husband’s Great Grandfather was from Bornholm and he has a strong pull to all things Danish. I loved Copenhagen and we are planning to go back hopefully to the coast next summer. Looking at the guidebooks I have no idea where the good places are to stay. If you had any good ideas that would be great. Thanks!

    Thank you for the Guerrilla Gardening article.
    It made me think of a woman I see once a week in the mornings going around our neighborhood picking up trash from the side of the streets. I really need to stop and thank her next time.
