Baking holiday sweets. Candy cane smash… my favourite part.

My latest simple indulgence: chunky handmade soap bricks. It’s the raw-ness, craft and simplicity that I love about them.

The $8 trillion internet economy: By the numbers

infoneer-pulse:

Since the first website debuted 20 years ago, the internet has become a daily reality for nearly a quarter of the world’s population, revolutionizing the way we work, socialize, create, and share information. In an attempt to quantify how much the internet is worth, a new report from McKinsey Global Institute focused on the online economies of the G-8 countries, plus those of China, India, South Korea, Sweden, and Brazil.

When I was assigned with taking care of dessert for Thanksgiving Dinner - ideas immediately started brewing. I knew the dinner menu was probably going to at the least consist of turkey, crazy amounts of stuffing and sweet potato mash - pretty heavy stuff.

Anyways, I was going to make homemade pumpkin or pear pie - but I wanted to go light this time around and so I instead made pumpkin ice cream and dark chocolate cherry and nut bark. I’m always a stickler for presentation (of which I probably got from my mother) and so I served the ice cream in baby pumpkins with graham crackers (pumpkin pie anyone?) and broke the chocolate in sharp glass-like pieces. 

The reviews? Absolutely raving.

Condiment Gun Shoots Out Ketchup and Mustard

I’d eat more hotdogs just so that this can hang out in my drawer OR how about we replace ketchup + mustard  with sriracha sauce + dijon mustard?

The Relative Sizes of the World’s Largest Photo Libraries

We know that Facebook has been THE largest photo sharing service but how does it compare to other photo libraries/online spaces?

Great choreography + the history of East London fashion. 

It’s really easy to cause a whole lot of great motion. Progress towards the set direction and objective is what counts: THAT’S when you’ve earned a cookie.

An outlet for quick spurts of what I consider are beautiful things and serve the purpose of visual inspiration. Likely a whole lot of food porn, robots, design and superheroes.
