I want to try this new face serum by Lulu Organics. I currently use the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery serum, but I also like to switch it up ever so often, so this one will be next on my list. I'll let ya know what I think about it in a few months. Any of you ever used the Lulu's before? They have an awesome looking line of all kinds of beauty care!

I am always making my sweet treats and have needed one of these on many occasions... I think I am going to go through a 'french toast for breakfast at least once a week' phase soon, so I may go ahead and order this now! ;) You can get one from Amazon for just under $20 HERE.

This week's pick from Christian.... I am so in love with everything about my redhead.... I cannot thank him enough for everything he did for me while I was away. My farm animals were 100% my little thing, and he totally became a farmer and caretaker like he had never planned and I will forever be grateful. On that note, I am also grateful that he selects music for me every week for this segment as well as mixes for my car....This November will mark 16 years together, and I love him more every day. My rock, that boy......

Toni Meneguzzo's project called "Holy Cow". Click on any of the images below to be directed to his website where you can see more images of these cows....
"An anthropological research of the Hindu tradition to celebrate the harvest and bovine sacredness.
Art painted on a walking canvas: the cow is carrying the painting while being the painting itself. The project was a long course of study and travel, which lasted five years, to obtain the largest possible repertoire of an art that is disappearing and to leave testimony of it. This research led to produce 92 images of holy cows, exploring several Indian states —Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, Uttar, Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Rajasthan — visiting their high-density rural villages to find the cows dressed up for the celebration of Pongal, Wangala, Holi festivals. 
Adorned with garlands of fresh flowers, with decorations of colourful shiny trinkets, the cows are prepared, and this is the most striking design element, painting their coat and horns with organic pigments that have specific references: the pink is used to reflect the color of the skin of Radharani, who is the companion of Krishna, the shepherd of the cows; the yellow of turmeric is the solar divinity that illuminates the world, and so on.
The pigments are thrown on the animal with an artistic flair that recalls the informal painting of Jackson Pollock.
The sacredness of the temple, the Go Puja, is celebrated by painting the bindi in the middle of the forehead of the animal, just like all the faithful humans.
After making the photograph,  the animals were cropped, making them float on the milky white, to emphasize the artistic work done by the locals on the cows because the surrounding rural and bucolic scenery is so imbued with Indian folk icon to mitigate the stylistic and artistic contributions used to celebrate the perpetual ritual of life and the sanctity of the animal."
