{weekend note}

I've been in one of those moods lately where I enjoy a good biography. Very rarely am I in this mood. Usually biographies bore me, or the thought of reading about someone seems kind of unimportant? For some reason, I feel I should be reading relevant, factual information. This is why you will never see me without a New York Times. Lately, I've taken a detour from that [I mean I still read the newspaper everyday] and have enjoyed a few biographies. One worth mentioning, is the Amelia Earhart biography. A woman ahead of her time, motivated and courageous. It got me thinking about our world today: we are so connected with social media, transportation [like airplanes!], and other mediums of communication. My blog and all of yours show motivation and courage as we share with the world our personal and sometimes intimate moments and projects. These day-to-day experiences inspire others, just how Amelia inspired women to take on challenges.

On a lighter note, I've been listening to the Midnight in Paris soundtrack on constant repeat. Romantic and sweet, it's been so kind to the ears this week especially with all the work and long lists.  With all that said, I thought I'd share some of the weekly, inspirational links.

Dior gives me goosebumps. Literally goosebumps.

With my lack of recipe this week, you can look here, here and here for a bit of indulgence.

I spy an easy neon-capped DIY.

I need to try this. I just need to do this right now.

For added inspiration throughout the weekend.

  1. What a lovely post!  I love your finds, and I can't wait to explore them more, but I wanted to leave you a comment first.  :-)  You have a great writing style -- very calming.  And as far as biographies go, I too have a difficult time with them.  Sometimes I find them to be an informational overload.  But the Coco Chanel biography by Lisa Chaney is fantastic.  I can't wait to pick up that Amelia Earhart biography that you recommended!  Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Supal, this was one of the best link collections I've read in a while. Seriously amazing round-up! Bookmarked, bookmarked, bookmarked! ;) Thanks for the book recommendation. I love Amelia (the movie) and have to check out her bio. I would actually be the opposite of you when it comes to biographies. I love reading real stories of inspiring people. Strangely (or maybe not so...), my favorite book of all time is Julia Child's My Life in France. It was one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. She was so fearless!

    Fab links! Patterson is actually one of my favorite Tumblrs. Loved this post!

  3. It has been a while since I read a good biography. Have never read Amelia Earhart's but perhaps it is one I should consider. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  4. Okay,  wow, this link list is amazing! Thanks so much for taking the time to collect and post this--loving it all!!:)

  5. India in Paris = awesomeness. Great links Sups!

  6. Thanks! That was my favorite read this week!

  7. I've been told that the Steve Jobs bio is also a must read... we'll see :) 

  8. Yeah I agree with the info overload! Lots of dates and places annoy me, but this one was very intriguing and more personal :) 

  9. HA! The movie Amelia actually got me motivated to read the bio! Someone gave me the book as a present, but I never read it. LOVE the movie. I've been told My Life in France is great. I'll have to pick it up.
