8.27.2009 Legumes of the Week

I've had a busy week and I'm still catching up on my RSS reader, so this list will be a short one! It's has some cool DIY instructions and recipes, though.

  • The Kodak Aero-Ektar group on Flickr is filled with gorgeous, dreamy photographs.
  • Please read about this very inspiring project by Meggy of Fashion for Writers. She's working on a book on how to live well with bipolar disorder. It sounds like it will be eye opening for anyone who suffers from a mood disorder (or is close to someone who does). I'm very happy to see that it's reached its fundraising goal!
  • Are you a raging Anglophile? Like BBC mini-series? Enjoy Jeeves & Wooster? Then you'll love Polly Farthing Vintage's post on Jeeves & Wooster style!
  • I think Diary of a Vintage Girl's Good Pin-Up Guide is helpful for anyone who wants to look their best on a special day.
  • Fieldguided's very thoughtful post on why she'd rather not shop at Urban Outfitters. I have a few UO pieces in my closet right now that I love, and I think they do a good job of letting young consumers (especially those who are growing up, like I did, in the suburbs) know that there are stylistic and cultural alternatives to stuff like Abercrombie & Fitch. I do agree, however, with Anabela's points. There are also some thoughtful comments posted.
  • Pearls In Your Hair teaches you how to make a yummy, luscious-looking vegetable pie.
I hope everyone is having a great week so far!


  1. Thank you so much for supporting my project; it means a lot to me, and it makes me happy that other people feel that it is an important endeavor as well.


  2. Maria: I'm glad to hear that!
    Meggy: No problem, I can't wait to see it!

  3. Lovely links! I learned a little today :DDD
    Also, the Kodak Aero-Ektar group has such beautiful photos! I'm still using my kit lens but I hope to get a more bokeh-ful one soon! XDDD

  4. Thanks! I use my 50mm lens for maximum bokeh effect. It takes great close ups of objects and is also good for street style shots like on the Sartorialist. In fact, I think that is what he uses. I have a Canon camera and the Canon brand 50mm lens one was the best and cheapest one I found (which was interesting... all my other non-kit lenses are from other brands!).

  5. That veggie sounds fantastic! I'm bookmarking that one for repeated use.

  6. I read the good pin up guide - its great!!

  7. Thanks everyone! I'm so glad to know you enjoy these links, too.
