i come across a lot of things during my week that don’t necessarily fit into the category of These Things or Nice Things, but that i usually tweet about or just email to my friends. that’s one of the main ways that i, too, discover interesting and/or enjoyably distracting things online – especially from geniuses such as Jessica, whose READ LOOK THINK posts i always look forward to, and Of A Kind’s 10 Things We’re Doing newsletter which is just excellent.
now i too will be sharing bits and pieces in my new Mid Week Distraction posts. every Wednesday. i know people usually post links and things at the end of the week, but come Friday i am usually so sick of looking at my computer the last thing i want to do is surf the web!
an amazing photo series of a girl’s journey to womanhood in the Himba tribe of Namibia.
what kids around the world eat for breakfast… the Dutch surprised me the most!
probably the weirdest video i have seen in a while, guaranteed to make you laugh.
the only time i have enjoyed something featuring a giant spider
Amelia Earhart’s pre-nuptial letter to her husband, written in 1931.
napkins printed with various conversation starters.
one of my favourite things to eat, but so difficult to make yourself!
this only contains coconut oil, cocoa and honey – and it is delicious.
a powerful campaign.
yes, those are sharks.
commission a portrait from Krisatomic!
made me smile :)

i’d like to ask you guys about what you think of the blog these days. what do you want to see more of? (and what do you want to see less of?) i have always been a blog-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal, sharing as i go and not really planning ahead because i enjoy the spontaneous nature of the site. but if you want to see more of something – eg music, design, photography, or just personal posts – please let me know!
