The Past

A lot of the time, when celebrities or influential people are asked what they would change about their past, they say that they wouldn't change a thing because it "made them who they are today."

That's good and all, but sometimes I wonder what I could have been if, for example, I hadn't hated myself for 25 years of being alive. That's why I love playwright Eve Ensler's answer to the question:

"I would have honoured my body, I would have lived inside it, cherished it and protected it."

Vampires on Vacay

Love this photo series by Instagram artist Lauren Servideo depicting a vampire on vacation.


Netflix Partners with Canadian Indigenous Artists

I was pretty excited to see that Netflix is partnering with Indigenous artists in Canada to create some new content. I can't wait to see the work that comes from this!

Three Things

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
-Jack Kornfield

The letting go can be really hard, can't it?

Wigging Out

Asya Kozina's paper wigs are in-freaking-credible.


Ikea Living Rooms

I know this is advertising, but I really love Ikea's new campaign, recreating some famous TV living rooms using only their furniture. It looks pretty good!

(Also, when I first typed the heading "Ikea Living Rooms" it autocorrected to "Ikean", and now I think we should call all living rooms or homes decorated mostly through Ikea furniture Ikean.)

Mónica Hernández

Mónica Hernández is a painter and illustrator, and her work is gorgeous, but what really grabbed my attention is that her Instagram feed, unlike most artists, is not a collection of her artwork. It's all self-portraits in her studio.


They are beautifully composed, sometimes silly, and often sexy, and I love them!
