Organic Envy blog: Modern Green Living+Spa Wisdom September 14, 2009

organicenvyI just found a great new organic blog, an offshoot of Organic Spa magazine:

Welcome to Organic Envy! After launching Organic Spa Magazine in January 2007, we felt it was time to open the doors to communication even further. The mission of the magazine is to bring spa wisdom home, as well as to highlight the spas that are leading the organic way. Is there something special you do to find that elusive balance we all seek? We love to share ideas and exchange thoughts revolving around a healthier planet and a healthier you. Please join us in the conversation.

Organic Envy belongs to the Organic Spa Magazine, if you love the publication you will enjoy this green blog.

Get the skinny on seriously organic beauty products September 13, 2009

skinnyThis online store is owned by the wife of a colleague. She’s a sculptor-turned-organic beauty guru, after creating an allergen-free soap for a relative. In other word, girl genius:

Our hand-crafted all-natural Organic Bath and Body products are truly unsurpassed. skinnyskinny’s line now includes organic soap, bath salts, lip balm and body oils and more. Our nutrient-rich and incredibly gentle products work so well because we use really great ingredients (extra-virgin olive oil, unrefined butters, and pure essential oils). Try these luxurious products for yourself to see what a difference this makes.

West 116th Street July 31, 2009

If only all thesis projects could be this fun. Here is a blog by a woman who works at Columbia and is also getting her doctorate there. Very funny for academia.

Read the W. 116th Street blog.

Very funny post on cable TV. I’ve been there. They just won’t let go.

Arcanalogue: A Charitable Tarot Site July 23, 2009

My friend Anne turned me on to her friend’s fabulous tarot site with a heart, Arcanalogue. More on Arcanalogue below:

cardybannerArcanalogue is best used as a way to understand the Tarot’s dusty, centuries-old cards via the events, culture, and symbols of today. Most of these posts isolate a single card and reinterpret it based on things I’ve found on the internet. As of this date, each of the 78 cards has been covered at least once, and a host of special interviews and instructional posts have been added.

I welcome questions and feedback from readers (of both Arcanalogue and of the Tarot in general). You can reach me by writing to arcanalogue@gmail.com. I do charge for actual readings, but 100% of all the money I make from them is donated to the literacy charity First Book (more info here…).

Valentino movie takes Midwest by storm, still going strong July 19, 2009

A wonderful note about the success of the Valentino movie, but what touched me was that it opened in both Columbia, Mo., and Des Moines, Iowa, two small Midwestern cities I once inhabited. Brava, Columbia and Des Moines!

valentinoDear Friends & Fans,

After a very strong first weekend in CANADA, we are happy to announce that we’re adding more screens in TORONTO (now also at AMC Winston Churchill and AMC Kennedy Commons) and MONTREAL (now also at Cinema Fortune Cavendish). Check the full listing of all 7 theaters on our website.

In the U.S., while still going strong in NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES after almost 4 months, Valentino continues to fill art houses around the country: This week WILTON, NH, and COLUMBIA, MO, are added to the list. And IOWANS, who so boldly embraced gay marriage a few months ago, can rush to the Varsity Theater in DES MOINES to learn a few lessons about longevity in relationships from the Italian couturier!

And that’s not all! We have a great program for the rest of the summer, which includes engagements in LAS VEGAS, MARTHA’S VINEYARD, THE VILLAGES in FLORIDA, ORLANDO, ESTERO, TEMPE, SACO, ELLSWORTH and return engagements to PALM SPRINGS and CHICAGO. See the list of all upcoming cities below or at http://www.valentinomovie.com.

Have a great weekend!
