Weekend Reads

So many things have been catching my eye all around the web that it's hard to even figure out where to start - but here's a few (and a few more) that I love. So open every tab in your browser and spend a while won't you?

Adore, adore, adore the new Kinfolk Magazine - as soon as I read it I wanted it in print but the online only videos and features makes it a virtual delight as well. It's peaceful, endearing, beautiful and such a wonderful escape.

Completely, hopelessly in love with Schwood sunglasses - with frames made from rare and repurposed woods. The video where they used broken skateboard decks to make a pair of completely beautiful sunglasses won me over...alas the price point is not for my budget but I can admire fervently.

The world's largest stop motion film - the making of is pretty great as well.

This series - commissioned by an Australian travel agency - takes three men on a journey of 11 countries over 44 days, they pieced their experiences together in three very interesting short films: Move, Eat, and Learn. Learn, though maybe not as technically difficult, was my favorite - what's yours?

I won't even begin to lie - the first time I saw Donal Skehan my reaction was a cross between "What?" and "He's so young?" and "Is he really famous?", but I watch a video and let him endear me and then I tried a recipe. These.were.amazing. AMAZING. Fishcakes! Not something I ever thought I would rave about. We made extras and froze them - still as good as fresh. I'm making more of his recipes for sure!

Funny enough, I mentioned the fishcakes to Tami at Running With Tweezers - and one of her recipes is next on my docket. Thai red curry coconut soup. Please. May I?

Ashley from Not Without Salt never fails to impress me - and this gorgeous, gorgeous post on her favorite summer treat of grilled soft cheese, thyme honey and fresh figs didn't let me down. One of my favorite blogs on the web by far.

Jaw dropping simplicity - one ingredient corn pudding!

I love the idea of making a printer-proof file - especially for sensitive files - even better as a means by which to save paper and save the world just a little, so the World Wildlife Fund paperless PDF immediately appealed. Find out more about how to make unprintable PDF documents and download the software here.

√Čadaoin from City of Blackbirds mentioned this AMAZING resource - The Do Lectures -  for lectures all about creativity, ideas, change, food, technology, business - doing. It's pretty fantastic.

Jessica Hische is secretly one of my gurus and this guide to CSS and HTML for non-web designers is just another reason why...even if it is for Wordpress blogs (which I am not), le sigh.

Need some time management help? Got a smart device? How about the 5 best apps for time management? You're welcome.

And now, my friends, I'm off - I've got farms to go to, a weekend to start, and a husband arriving home from a job he loves soon. I'm smitten with this life!
