I am a huge Lazy Genius fan. Not only do I have Kendra Adachi's first book, The Lazy Genius Way, but I also helped support this series of videos produced to publicize her second book, The Lazy Genius Kitchen. (And, of course, I have that too!) The video series is a hoot which comes as no surprise. Kendra is quirky, funny, non-judgemental, and always there to help you be a genius about the things that matter, and lazy about the things that don't. This is the trailer and you can find the 6 videos in the series on YouTube. (Just click to watch on Youtube and from there you can go to the Lazy Genius YouTube channel.)
(By the way, both books hit the New York Times Best Seller List.)
Since I live in Japan, I'm quite familiar with how Japaneses clothing is made. However, I know next to nothing about Korean clothing although I have always thought the "hanbok" was very beautiful. This video shows the process from beginning to end and it was fascinating!
I am slowly learning about roses and, whew, is there a lot to learn! Perhaps the first step is learning to identify the different varieties of roses. If this interests you, this website is a good place to start. (A screenshot of the website is below. Of course, there is much more if you scroll down on the original website.) It also has a lot of related articles about roses in the side menu.
In a blog post on May 25th, I mentioned dropping by Kitahama Retro Tea Room for some ginger shortbread. While looking for information about the tearoom, I came across this delightful video. I love Kitahama Retro, although I don't visit often, and this video does a great job of recreating its atmosphere. (It's a tiny place, and you often have to wait – which is when I think he took much of the video.) Just have to say, though, that I would never order potato salad sandwiches...
Last week a colleague and I were talking about sleep patterns and how ours had changed over the years. We puzzled over a few things and left it at that. Well, today, by chance, I came across this podcast in which Russell Foster, an expert on circadian neuroscience, addressed some of our exact questions. The interview was interesting and informative – so much so that I plan to listen to it again.
I'm stepping back from social media so this is where I share links that I think others might enjoy. They will rarely be related to photography though!
