dessert fetish

I've had a thing for cooking latley, and have been totally seduced by food porn all over the web.

You have to visit Ming Makes Cupcakes. I don't even have words for this site. I'm in love.

Canelle et Vanille is the perfect food blog. Mouth watering recipes, with equally alluring photography. Pink Macaroons and strawberry salads. Need I say more?

you don't know how much it counts..


In 2003, the New Yorker published an article called 'Jumpers'. The article chronicled the deeply saddening amount of people who take their own lives by jumping from the ironically beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. After the suicide of one man, the FBI and local police were working together in an effort to understand the man's actions. They found a note...

"I’m going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump"

So today, wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you do, just give someone a smile. Someone you don't even know. You don't know how precious this small act can be; how much it can mean to someone. However, for me this doesn't simply carry the message of the importance of giving a smile, rather it's a reminder that we've all forgotton what it is to be truly altruistic.

“Hey girls, you’re beautiful. Don’t look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That’s all. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. You are good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you’re a size 3 or a size 14. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you’re a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it’s been told hundreds of times before, but it’s true. Hey girls, you are beautiful”
