“Sometimes the biggest secret women keep are what they really want to do with their lives.”
“Aren’t we all secretly aware that there are things we’d like to try, and might actually be able to do, if we weren’t so damned embarrassed to be seen trying.”
– Kelly Corrigan
February may be the shortest month of the year, but the cold weather and grey skies seem never-ending and leave me feeling blah. Fortunately I recently discovered an antidote: The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado. Their music literally puts a spring in my step.
I’m in love with all 12 songs on their self-titled album (which you can preview on iTunes here), but my favourites are Stubborn Love, Flowers in Your Hair, Submarines, and Ho Hey.
Enjoy the video.
If you don’t have a New Year’s resolution to be more active in 2013 this infographic should give you some inspiration to get fitter. Working out doesn’t just affect the body, it affects the brain by stimulating brain cell growth. A fitter body = a fitter brain.
Maybe it’s time they renamed exercise weights “smartbells“.

Want to stay young at heart? The secret is to never lose your sense of curiosity or wonder. Why not start the year off by learning something new? I’ve just enrolled in this 2 week course with Skillshare - a global learning community where you can learn real-world skills from real people. If you don’t already know about Skillshare then click here to check out the classes they are currently offering. You can learn anything from meatball making to logo design at affordable prices (my course was only $20).
I hope your 2013 is filled with curiosity and wonder. Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe Christmas is only 1 week away! We just brought our tree home yesterday and the house smells wonderful. It’s always a lot of work stringing the lights and hanging the decorations but so worth the effort. I can’t wait until I can sit back and gaze at my little twinkling tree (while sipping a little rum & eggnog) and then it will truly start to FEEL like Christmas.
I hope all of you have a magical holiday season and a 2013 filled with love, good health, and happiness. Merry Christmas!
