Link Love (& Happy Thanksgiving!) – Week Ending 27/Nov 2009
November 27, 2009 in Link Love
First things first. Happy thanksgiving for all of those celebrating! Regardless of where you are from, it is as wonderful an opportunity as any to be thankful. I am thankful for my wonderful boyfriend & the past 7 months, my friends & family, cafe’ breakfast, fantastic opportunities, sunny days, kittens, and feeling incredibly positive and motivated.
I’m skipping straight to the link love this week. It’s been a good week, however, I have had much less time for adventures! Still loving eggs on a sunny morning in a beautiful Takapuna beach side cafe, picking up the new issue of Fashion Quarterly, cinnamon candies from the Old Lolly Shop and discovering that New Zealand has a thriving community of social media enthusiasts. Thank you Social Media NZ!

Rachel Hills on Britney Spears and Why It’s Painful to be Beautiful.
And so we see Britney Spears. A woman who has - I think, at least – all the gifts of conventional beauty, who gets shit lumped on her whenever she dares to gain five kilos, get a pimple or not blow dry her hair. And who gets showered with financial and emotional rewards whenever she follows the script.
