I’m planning some BIG changes for this blog. February for me is all about getting centred, getting organised and moving forward with some pretty big plans. Does anyone else use January to mess around a bit before really throwing themselves in to the new year?

Here are some interesting bits and pieces from across the web…

Chickens are closely related to dinosaurs, and other insights from the new bird family tree > OK so I was initially drawn to this because of the flamingo pic (I <3 flamingoes) but turns out its a great read too.

There’s been LOADS of talk about Vaginal Steaming lately…Gwyneth suggests on that women steam-clean their vaginas for extra energy, to rebalance female hormones and for a squeaky clean uterus. This writer in The Guardian explains why that’s a BAD idea.

Meet Mr. Money Mustache, the Personal-Finance Blogger Who Wants You to Spend Like You’re Poor.

and FINALLY…if you’re stuck or procrastinating then you need to read this article by Gary Vaynerchuck. Stop Asking Me About Your Personal Brand, and Start Doing Some Work.

I was having a little look through my flickr photo stream the other day and found this from my visit to New York in May. That squirrel kept going back and back and back for nuts. Clever.

Also, I feel like the word “procrastination” is too strong. Just because you’re on Twitter saying stuff, it doesn’t really mean you’re procrastinating. The status update has become such a fluid part of culture.


I believe that you can eat extremely well on a budget, it’s just all down planning and savvy shopping. In MY opinion the problem lies with people not having the skills to cook and budget for healthy foods. I’d love to know what you think of this story.
