Hola, como esta? Mi muy bien. Pour a cup and read about what you need to read.
I’m sharing with you today links that I believe you can’t go any further in life without reading. This has been a weekly series for over a year but I can’t decide what to call it. Past iterations have included Really Great Things and Links I Love. Still tinkering, bear with me.
Do we all agree, well with the exception of Mr. 12 who is a vanilla baby, that chocolate is a major food group? Then you’ll want to read this piece in Newsweek about the genetics of chocolate.
I hope reading this will give you all of you chocolate snobs, you know who you are, a reason to buy the occasional Snickers or Milky Way bar. The Mars Company is funding massive amounts of research in the name of chocolate lovers everywhere.
How was May weather where you are? It was gorgeous here in Maine, a bit dry but sunny and pretty warm. If you’re in the U.S. you might want to check out this summer forecast. Of course, I know many of you are not in the U.S. (Hi Brazilian and Russian readers:) )
No matter the weather, it’s always a good time for a mojito. I’ve never tried this version but it uses one of my favorite fruits.
How many times a day are you checking Facebook or Twitter or Instagram? Here are 7 Reasons Why You Should Take a Break from Social Media. The first and foremost being the quote below:
“Sometimes social media makes us less focused on our own lives and more focused on what others are doing.” —-Moose A. at Elite Daily
My makeupandbeauty blogger and fellow crazy cat lady, Karen, informed the world about a new, rare perfume, which contains benzoin tears. Google it. Those tears are a real thing. Then read what Karen had to say about the scent.
And while you’re at it, check out her boss Tabs’ new blog. You’ll be mewling with jealousy.
Further proof that Amazon is indeed taking over the world. Would you like a bowl of Amios?
Living in Maine exposes one to a fair amount of country music. I must say it’s not my first choice when I turn the dial but I do like that Little Red Wagon song by Miranda Lambert. In fact, I’ve found I like many of her songs, especially Gunpowder and Lead. She’s all about women’s empowerment Then I found this post on ways to repurpose a little red wagon. I like the bar cart idea and once 12 and 46 give up their little red wagon, I’m snagging it. You can listen to Little Red Wagon while you’re refurbishing one.
I’m really more about the cookie than the cupcake but this is the cleverest idea I’ve seen in a long time.
