It’s so nice when we find a new perspective on a loved theme (but already so exhaustively explored) like beauty, don’t you think? This feed explores the beauty theme, but within a natural elements background – the delicate and inspiring vision of Sophie Doyle and Abby Foy. Lovely.

I don’t know if this website/app is new just for me, but I’m loving to use Noisi, have you heard about it? It allows you to choose a few background noises, such as the sound of rain, train tracks and even a coffee shop buzz. It’s great, especially for those days that require full concentration (and I get very distracted with music, so…). You can even combine the effects or let the app choose one combination for you, randomly. Very fun!

I think it’s important that everything doesn’t go right because it’s in the mistakes you can find something unexpected and also be outside your safety zone. The worst thing that could happen is get stuck in what you know you’re good at. So as soon as I feel like I have something that I know I can do good, I have to stop“.

Reading Women

Reading Women, by Carrie Schneider Reading Women, by Carrie Schneider Reading Women, by Carrie Schneider Reading Women, by Carrie Schneider

Rena reading Zadie Smith + Flávia reading Clarice Lispector
Bianca reading Sylvia Plath + Kelly reading Gabrielle Hamilton
Amy reading Michelle Cliff + Whitney reading Terry Tempest Williams
Vicky reading Gloria Fuertes + Sarah reading Zora Neale Hurston

Reading Women is a photographic series by Carrie Schneider, who between 2012 and 2013 portrayed seventy women, in the confort of their own homes (and their favorite chair, sofa and other reading spots), reading a personally selected book by a female author. 

The project is really beautiful and captures the moments of total abandonment of self-awareness that comes when we allow ourselves to be taken over by the powerful narrative of a good book. I recommend reading the full story about the series on the Huffington Post.

I’m a big fan of Karen Mordechai and Sunday Suppers for years and got super excited when I learned that she was going to publish a cookbook. I knew it would be beautiful, a must see book. I saw it one of these days and I was right: it’s gorgeous. I need it.
