friday fizz, the fifth

Erin is a super great event photographer whose tagline is “This ain’t your grandma’s wedding photography.” And it isn’t. I mean, it ain’t. Well, Erin also happens to be crazy great with web design, and she’s now offering her services to the masses. Need some help? Check her out.

Do you know about Listgeeks? It’s kinda like Pinterest, for the list-inclined among us.

The New York Times presented a collection of stories this week (written, photographed, and videotaped) on LGBT teenagers from throughout the U.S.

A couple weeks ago, Tammy shared a post with some great Portland, Oregon resources. In case you’re as obsessed as I am.

Sally McGraw of Already Pretty had an article up on The Frisky this week on Dressing Vs. Dieting.

Oh, how I love a good cooking metaphor. Like this one, from Victoria.

Apparently, Adele is keeping her business intentionally small. And because small, sweet and sincere are some of the qualities I hold most dear, I just got even more smitten with her.

Y’all may have already heard of him, but I just found Michael Nobbs (of Sustainably Creative) this week. He has wonderful things to say on getting work done even if you’re low on energy, straight from his own experiences living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He also talks about the importance of pampering ourselves, an argument I’m rather partial to, if you hadn’t noticed.

When New York begins to rev up the summer humidity, I long more fervently for the icy water and sturdy mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Then I go and read Tea and Cookies, and I feel a bit closer to my homeland.

And lastly, as we head into the heart of summer, here are two articles about the ubiquity of the oppressive cultural phenomenon of the “bikini body”: one from Jezebel, the other from the New York Times.

Goodbye, my dearies. Hope you have a lovely weekend. And maybe even a long one, if you’re here in the U.S.

    Thanks for the shout-out, lady. Sending a big one back to you, with a hug attached to it (but not if it’s already too humid over there, then just a breezy pat on the back). The homeland is waiting for you, whenever you need it.
