Weaving a tapestry of womanly wit and wisdom.
)❤( Can I just clear up a misconception? I'm a 42-year-old feminist, but that does NOT mean I don't care about style! I am so in love with Catherine Summers' fashion blog, Not Dressed as Lamb, and especially this post on styling vintage.
)❤( And...through Catherine's blog, I discovered a new world of male fashion bloggers, starting with...Check this out...Catherine Summers' husband! *swoon*
)❤( Is it possible, at 42 years old, to undo the effects of years of a sedentary lifestyle? I am encouraged by Margaret Webb's practical fitness advice over at Older, Faster, Stronger.
)❤( Recently, over on her blog, Gwyneth Paltrow reviewed Tikkun, an L.A. spa that offers yoni steams. It caused a stir, and Dr. Lissa Rankin has weighed in with a (much appreciated) down-to-earth and honest opinion on the practice.
)❤( To celebrate the last few days of Women's History Month, you might mozey on over to this directory of female role models. Though I did not find Amelia Earhart (a childhood shero) on the list, I do have to say it is a pretty good start and the really good news is that we can contribute to fill in those gaps!
)❤( A lot of women stumble onto The Goddess Diaries in search of diary prompts. Well, my friend, Kelly-Ann of The Four Queens, published this list of 100 Illuminating Journal Prompts last week. I used a few in my own "Three Pages a Day" practice. I hope you find them just as useful!
)❤( Hmm...in case you didn't notice, the theme here is all about sheroes...that is, women and men that I adore! Seriously...I just can't get enough of these teenage sheroes!
)❤( Or...wait? Is the theme fashion bloggers? Haha...But seriously, Frida would have had the best fashion blog!
)❤( Earlier this week, my girlfriends, MaLinda Gunderson and Suzanne Michelle, and I caught Ani DiFranco in concert. This woman. I just adore everything about her...from her private, independent label to that amazing vocal range that shifts between a delicate lilt and a gritty howl at will. The concert was great, as evidenced by the smiles...oh, and watch this space for the concert review! :)
)❤( Speaking of 90's rock icon/ righteous babes, did you hear Alanis Morrisette is writing a self-help book AND has given the nod to repurpose her breakthrough album into "Jagged Little Pill, The Musical!"
)❤( And finally, this song has been stuck in my head since Tuesday....
