I discovered the work of illustrator Katie Turner via Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky, and couldn't stop smiling at her colourful and sweet images. She has a particular affinity for boys in glasses which I share, in addition to a great list of boyfriend requirements which made me laugh and feel a sense that she is distantly and unknowingly a kindred spirit. Check out her BF requirement list and more illustrations via her site or tumblr.

Do any of you remember my post on poet and singer/songwriter Tanya Davis? Her latest video for her poem How to Be Alone is receiving a ridiculous amount of attention (which I think is absolutely and thoroughly well deserved) and is quickly closing in on a million hits via youtube!
I have to say, as someone who is currently spending far more time alone than I ever have before, living in a new city where I don't really know anyone or have any sort of social circle, this video was something I could not only totally relate to, but a total encouragement to 'embrace' this alone time, and so I thought I'd share it here. Enjoy!
