Parody of Lorde’s “Royals” for thirtysomething ladies. Genius.
This teenager playing the guzheng shreds Slash’s guitar solo in “Sweet Child o’ Mine.” Amazing.
It’s a life-size horse sculpture that doubles as a lamp. If you had this in your living room, wouldn’t it remind you to take life a little less seriously?
This was one of my favorite elements of the Skyhouse, a Manhattan penthouse I had the pleasure of touring this past Saturday as part of the CityModern home tour. This amazing four-story apartment also features an 80-foot-long mirror-polished stainless steel corkscrew slide and a 50-foot-tall steel column fitted with climbing holds to reach a cushioned crow’s nest. Skyhouse was breathtakingly beautiful and full of fun, just the way life should be.
How amazing is that?! The hidden beauty of fore-edge painting fills my chest with happiness. This technique of painting on the edges of books was popular from the mid 17th to late 19th centuries. The artwork is hidden by the gilded edges of the pages until the book is fanned. (Find out more at Twisted Sifter.)
Remember when you believed without a doubt in fairies and elves? If you happened upon a tiny door in a tree like this one, would it make you hopeful that magical world really does exist? Keebler’s marketing elves are behind this Tiny Door Project, but you can still dare to dream.
Have you ever noticed you hold your breath when you’re stressed or focusing hard on something? I do this all the time, and thought it was some weird thing only I did. Turns out it’s common, and you can reduce your stress and anxiety by just remembering to breathe. There are lots of breathing techniques you can try, but the vast majority of us will benefit from making sure that we simply exhale for twice as long as we inhale. So, try it now. Just breathe.
