Friday Finds 6.12.15

1. Jack Black + Red Nose Day = This.

2. Nobel Prize winner Tim Hunt thinks science labs should be segregated by gender because women are too distracting and male scientists can’t help falling in love. Ummm, what? Women have cleverly responded. But I think men should be equally insulted.

4. And last but not least, rescued baby orangutans.

Friday Finds 4.17.15

1. Incredibly inspiring and brilliantly beautiful paintings done by an unlikely artist. 

2. I may be a little bias on this one because I had so much fun on my trip to Iceland, but I found this article incredibly inspiring. The writer really enunciates the therapeutic element that comes from traveling.

3. Nike nails it with their “Better for it” campaign. We’ve all had these thoughts. Some days a workout feels so good and others its just blah. But either way, getting out and doing something is a great accomplishment. Be proud of yourself.

4. Would you post a bathing suit pic online? I know most women would pass… And many would consider posting one brave, but not this woman. She helps remind us what bravery really is.

Friday Finds 2.20.15

1. Problem: my dog doesn’t like to cuddle. Solution: Cuddle Clones. Cuddle Clones is a company that creates a stuffed animal version of your pet. Bonus: portions of each purchase go to pet related causes. Because I have a little corgi with an aversion for cuddling, I would like to get a full size replica of this dog and cuddle with it forever.

2. Ever hear people say, “when I was your age I walked 5 miles to school, uphill, both ways!”. Well, they have nothing on this man who walked 21 miles every day for work. Luckily, his inspirational story has made the news and donations to help him have been pouring in.

3. The World Food Programme is working to put a name and story to the 805 million people around the world who are fighting hunger. Read their inspiring stories here. Share. Discuss. Donate.

4. The Kid President guide to being more awesome. Corndog anyone?

Check out what I’ve been checkin’ out this week…

1. Inspired by the Joan Didion’s Celine ad, which hit the web this January, Fusion writer Elisa Rodríguez-Vila does some of her own model casting for other high fashion lines.The results are pretty fabulous and I really hope this sparks some diversity in the fashion world.

2. If you couldn’t tell by now, I love a good animal rescue story. I’ve featured dogs, cats, koalas, manatees and now… a flying squirrel. Let the cuteness ensue!

3. The American Edit is a website that celebrates brands that manufacture in the USA. And while we know it’s good to buy “made in America” products, it’s sometimes hard to articulate exactly why. That’s exactly what this article does.

4. Check out this article about the World Bicycle Relief organization, which brings wheels to those who need them most. As the article explains, “Mobility is as literal as it is metaphorical, and providing the means to move provides a tangible hope”.

5. We all cope in different ways. Check out this girl who created a bucket list for her dying dog in order to help cope with the parting of her companion. Yes, the story is sad, but it is also very inspiring.

Now here is a funny cat picture to cheer you back up. Happy Friday!
