Wholestyle on the Web: Week of 12/04/2009
As December starts, we begin to fill up on holiday treats – this week we’ve got some amazing treats for your brain (and a giant list of treats to fill your tummy!).
Arts and Entertainment this week has Danielle Meder’s Toronto-fashion paper doll book and a review of Influence – because the Olsen Twins have been frickin’ adorable since they were tiny tv tots. There’s also some fascinating thoughts on Gay Superheroes; an article that muses on the connection with superheroes, and how that opens doors for everyone – no more us vs. them.
Our Body Talk section asks you to look in the mirror to see who’s really there – it’s you, and you’ve got beauty in all the right places!
The Education section offer’s Simon Doonan’s view on Pauline Bonaparte and why she was such a babe. There’s also some insight on loneliness – a common holiday affliction. Learn you somethin’!
In Fashion, Ms Agent Loverrrrrr breaks down the Rodarte for Target line and Michelle at Wicked Whimsy talks about the practical quality of what you buy.
Since it’s the holidays, there’s a bajillion (or like 9) Food links. We love food – can you blame us?!
Our Health and Beauty section weighs in on Pilates, Yoga and Vitamin E. And for the ladies with light eyebrows, Zoetica has a fantastic tutorial for filling them in. No more pencil for those brows – it’s all about the powder.
To beef up your Positivity, we fully believe in the “get from life what you put in” philosophy, and there’s a great article on that. And Generation Meh wants you to know that “You can’t erase, but you CAN revise.” That seems to be some of the best inspiration we’ve heard all day!
Our Sexuality articles offer some insights on how porn is overly demonized. Also, are there gray areas of sexual consent? I bet your answer is no… you should read on, to find out!
Social Issues this week explores the fat revolution (the Food Network is trying to slim people down!?). Someone should email Christoper Kimball from Cooks Illustrated and tell him I need less butter in EVERYTHING in the Test Kitchen cookbook! >_<
The Travel section has a bunch of beautiful places to visit. Star went to New York, Zevs has creepy places to stay, and the Amazon Basin awaits. Go forth, young one! Be amazed!
In Work and Career we have a few talented minds weighing in on working for yourself, keeping up with your clients, and your career versus your need to bear offspring.
