Bon weekend guys! Hope you've been relaxing and/or blowing off a little steam. I've been meeting up with old friends, attending some really inspiring business courses at the Creative Startups Showcase in Somerset House and making grand plans. Overall a really great weekend so far.
Here's some link love to help you while away a very chilly Sunday:
♥ Rebecca Harrington of The Cut has been trying the diets of golden-era celebrities like Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe (who used to drink two raw eggs in milk for breakfast). Here's her Elizabeth Taylor diet, which involved steak covered in peanut butter and dry toast. Delicious.
♥ Genius! This $10 Ikea hack is so charming and personal. (via Ikea Hackers)
♥ Ok that's it. I'm off to make these awesome DIY faceted clay rings right now. (via Poppytalk)
♥ Yesterday at the Creative Startups Showcase I had the pleasure of trying some of Shakespeare's Sauces. They're cooking sauces based on Elizabethan recipes and they are just delicious. They're yet to be launched, so keep an eye out and when you get a chance, try 'The World's Mine Oyster Sauce' - it's incredible.
♥ Spring is a lie. It's still freezing here. So I'm planning to make these roasted vegetables with a lemon caper vinaigrette. (via Apartment Dining)
♥ I am totally taken by this blog - An American in Itay - where a former Nashville professional retired from her job and moved to Florence. She updates frequently with all the things she does there - the good (going to a gajillion art exhibitions, eating delicious food, drinking incredible cioccolatas) and the not so good (bureaucracy and more bureaucracy). So inspired! (Via An American in Italy).
♥ So people who don't like carbs/eating paleo are subsituting it with grated cauliflower. I don't know how I feel about this. But that's probably because I'm half Asian and rice is my everything. Maybe I'll try it one day when I weigh myself and cry. (via Everyday Maven)
♥ The Tutor Crowd took to the streets to grammatically correct all the mispelled graffiti. Such a clever (and necessary) campaign. (Via Fastcocreate)
