It’s a gorgeous afternoon here in Santa Barbara, breezy and warm with sunshine flooding the skies overhead. This being Friday, I thought I’d round up a few favourites from the past week.
Ever dreamed of becoming a speed reader? This App can get you to read up to 1,000 words per minute! While I’m not sure how practical this is in terms of leisurely reading enjoyment, I can see the applications of it being very useful for students and those needing to get through great tomes of technical writing. Tell me: would you try it?
Go-to fashion “it girl” and last week’s Oscar Winner Lupita Nyong’o on the essence of black beauty.
This has been going around like wildfire on social media. Definitely worth a listen!
Today is the start of SXSW (music/film/interactive) in Austin, TX. Tonight’s opening film is Chef directed by and starring Jon Favreau. Wish we were there!
If you live in a country that uses Daylight Savings Time, don’t forget to spring forward this Sunday, March 9th! We might lose an hour of sleep but gain bright sunshine streaming through the windows in the early morning hours, which means spring (for those of you with a four-season climate) is just around the corner.
Last but not least, for the past few weeks, we’ve been back to homeschooling Finnlagh (a bit of a long story there), which means that during the day, I get to spend a lot of extra time with our boys while Alina’s at school. Budding photographer Finnlagh surprised me with these photos he took on my iPhone the other morning, explaining that I was “daydreaming” and “enjoying a morning break with the new baby.” Ah, he knows me so well!
