I saw Blue Jasmine. I’m not really sure what I thought of it. Cate Blanchett is undoubtedly a brilliant actor I just think I’m not a Woody Allen fan. Hmmm.
Totally made Smitten Kitchen’s Almond Crisped Peaches this weekend. For now there’s the link to her recipe. My recipe will be up shortly!
I completely agree and know, in a way, I also contribute to this: Study Finds Facebook Makes Us Sadder And Less Satisfied. So what can we do? Cancel Facebook? Block our own friends and family? Stop comparing and judging even though it’s impossible?

I love looking into others’ craft studios. I always find it so inspiring. When I saw Bijou Lovely’s studio spotlight I wanted to crawl right in the photographs. It is exactly how I would decorate a home craft room/studio if we had the extra space. It is total perfection, you need to click on the link and check out the rest of the pictures.
I am obsessed with these 40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World. Highlights include: countries that do not use the metric system, most common surnames in Europe by country, global internet usage based on time of day, global population density, oil import and export flows, worldwide coffee consumption, and many, many more!
Ooh, I just got peaches at the farmer’s market and want to try that Smitten Kitchen recipe too. I love that ecard about facebook, and used to have a similar outlook until I read this blog post: http://semi-rad.com/2013/06/please-continue-instagramming-your-amazing-life/ I then quickly blocked from my feed any “frenemies” that I couldn’t be genuinely happy for when I saw their cool posts, and my facebook suddenly got a lot happier. :)
That post is GREAT! Thank you so much for sharing!!
