Internet Inspiration – June 28, 2013

This is ZZ Ward, and she’s my new favorite. I just can’t get enough.

This takes Tic-Tac-Toe to a whole. ‘notha. level.

“You’ve shown me the type of person you are and I will adjust my expectations and behavior accordingly.” Wise advice from Sarah von.

I’ve pretty much decided that the most wonderful, easy summer meal is descended from a greek salad. The main players area always cucumber and feta, and then I throw in anything else in my refrigerator. Last night it was cucumber, feta, apple, pine nuts, and strawberries. Use olive oil and lemon juice, or olive oil and apple cider vinegar, plus salt and pepper, to season. Nom nom nom. Here is a suggested recipe for blueberry and cucumber salad, and here is a possibly delicious blueberry cucumber smoothie.

Stunningly beautiful, unphotoshopped pictures of a yogi.

I had set out to reveal the ugly sides of myself, but in shot after shot, all I could find was beauty.  It occurred to me that I could easily take a photo of myself at my worst—we all could.

But even on my worst days, while ugly is how I might feel, it is never who I am.

Doing an “ugly” photoshoot would be just as distorted as doing a shoot where my “beauty” was photoshopped in.

The beauty of this shoot is that it captured all sides of me and while some sides admittedly made me cringe, others absolutely took my breath away (see full slideshow below). For the first time ever on a shoot, I was able to completely let go of all self-consciousness and get really comfortable in my own skin. It dawned on me as I posed unabashedly next to a soft and curved statue of Venus, that my flaws were part of what made me an exquisite work of art.


Have a great weekend!
