Hip hop goes Broadway. This is incredible. If you’re sensitive about language, you should probably go ahead and not watch this.

The world’s first ocean cleaning system to be deployed in 2016. I want to do more research on this, but at first glance it seems REALLY cool.

Boston is doing this weird thing with rabbits.

This is hysterical and sad. People are shaving their dogs’ hair so they look like cubes.

Leaked emails between Jeb Bush and his graphic designer. This kills me.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

Road Tripping 101: Getting Prepared

ROAD TRIP 101

So I just finished my first road trip.

Naturally, this means I think I know everything there is to know on the subject and feel the need to share all of my newly discovered wisdom on the topic.

Unfortunately, all I can do is share our experiences. Let’s start with preparation. To be honest, we didn’t do a lot of it, but I think that was for the better. We scheduled a couple of Airbnbs throughout the trip, scheduled the basic outline of our days, but didn’t plan much in the way of activities or meals. Here’s what we DID prepare: (more…)

Hi, friends! It’s been a while since Thursday Tidbits showed their face. It’s high time for some important things and some completely not important things.

Wes Anderson designed a cafe and it’s just about the most delightful thing ever. So many pastels.

I saw Mad Max a week or so ago and, since then, I’ve been telling everyone to see it. I think action movies are usually entertaining but ultimately forgettable. Fury Road finally combined explosions with incredible female characters and I’m really excited about it. Here’s a review on the Roger Ebert site that I think does it justice.

Let the countdown to Stephen Colbert’s Late Show begin.

WHY DOES THIS EXIST. Owen WIlson saying “wow” in every one of his movies.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

Crater Lake, OR

CRATER LAKE

Day one of the cross-country road trip brought us to Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States. It’s a collapsed volcano that filled with snow and rainwater until the basin was full of clear, fresh, beautiful water. This made for some completely beautiful photo ops.   (more…)

Washington: Olympia, Snoqualmie, & Seattle

OYMPIASNOQUALMIESEATTLE

So… the Pacific Northwest is incredible.

This weekend I saw three beautiful places, two incredible waterfalls, and fell deeply, deeply in love with Seattle in a matter of a couple of hours. I don’t watch Twin Peaks, but if I did, I would be jazzed about staying in the town where it’s filmed (we ate cherry pie at the diner and I think that’s an important element or something). We built fires and hiked and explored for days. (more…)

For a more creative brain, travel. Okay, cool. I’m there.

The extraordinary science of junk food. This is gross and fascinating.

I spent an hour this week down the rabbit hole of Minimalism School posts from Heroine Training. Xandra is a delight and I’m always so inspired by her posts and videos. If you’re interested in lightening your load and keeping your life magical and clear of clutter, she’s your lady.

This magical video of a baby and a dandelion.

If you’re looking for an article about burglary and expert decision-making, here’s the one.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

How to Integrate Simplicity & Design Into Your Daily Life

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I have always tied my creativity to my surroundings.

To keep my mind focused, productive, and creative, the things that surround me should be focused, productive, and creative, too.

I’ve always loved the phrase, “Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
