This time yesterday there was a breakfast picnic in a rose garden - to soak up these summerlike mornings, to feast on the scent and flavour of roses, to celebrate the start of fig season and best of all, to spend the morning in the company of inspired, warm and incredibly talented women. A brilliant idea by @netherleigh who made and brought along rose + almond granola with rose preserve (a mind blowing recipe by @tworedbowls), @emikodavies spoiled us with a jar of homemade caramelised figs and @abbie_melle was on the very important job of bringing a tea pot of fine loose leaf tea.
I’m excited to spend more time with these ladies this Saturday night to celebrate the release of @emikodavies stunning new book, ‘Florentine’ with a book signing and food demonstration at @canberraesntl in Kingston. Canberra people! Who would like to come with!? There’s nothing quite like an excuse to spend time with likemindeds and connect over food and wine (or tea) and of course to celebrate incredible local talent. There are still tickets available by following the link in @emikodavies profile. It would be lovely to see you all there! by leanandmeadow http://ift.tt/1TJHQAv
Apparently some people believe that because Misha hasn’t been on SPN from the start, he doesn’t deserve to be part of the 200th episode celebration and season 10 photo shootings.
It’s kind of ridiculous that after 6 seasons of Misha on the show, we still have to fight for stuff like that, but please go tell the PR how much Misha means to us, and how deserving he is that the show made it to its 10th season!
#The journey these two have had this season # conquering the ultimate darkness # and even death # the painful heartbreaking sacrifices both have had to overcome # just for that future # the future with each other # and they now can finally # celebrate because they’ve overcome all of these obstacles # and have been confirmed true love by the Gods # now their future can begin # without monsters # without the darkness #without Hades # and it all starts with a simple and sincere I love you # with a wedding dress in the background ;)
The public raws for this week’s JUMP are out surprisingly early, so you get this early too. ^^

My submission for Book 5: Fandom. Avatar and Korra are really important to me. I remember the first time I watched Avatar. I was home alone and I made a blanket fort in the living room with my dog and Nickelodeon was marathoning the first season to celebrate the start of the second.
Even though I drew Zuko and Druk, I’m an Airbender at heart. I try to live life like an air acolyte and be a positive person. Avatar has really influenced my life a lot, and for that I give my eternal thanks and gratitude to Bryke and all the wonderful staff involved with it.
Now it’s only a matter
of hours that the hellatus 2015 is drawing to a close and season 11 is
about to start. In celebration of a new season starting tomorrow, let’s
take a look at the road so far. Here’s to a new kickass season!!!
is a large gifset with a lot of frames, so it may turn out playing out
of sync, should that happen try and refresh. I tested it and it should run smoothly once before the timing is getting wacky, but it all is timed properly, so the delay is due to tumblr messing up. And the typos are fixed too. Hope you enjoy! And sorry about the othe set before. ;____; I’m off to bed now. Good night!
‘As we wait for his next petitioner to arrive, I ask whether Bob’s days as a community activist are behind him now that celebrity has arrived. He’s busier now, after all, and it wouldn’t be the first time someone started toning down their rhetoric once they entered the public eye. He doesn’t hesitate: “I’ve always said that I will be where I’m needed most,” he replies. “There was a time when I was needed on the front line, yelling, getting arrested. I feel like now, now I’m needed more advocating from this side of the jail cell. But if there ever comes a time where I need to be on the front line, that’s where I’ll be."’

The Summer has finally arrived here in the UK, and so has the Wedding season.
We get invited to so many celebrations throughout the Summer, and many of them start in the daytime and carry on through to the evening.
This makes it hard to choose a makeup look that will carry you through both daytime and nighttime, and that is also going to last in the warm weather.
I decided to do a talk-through tutorial covering some of these aspects, while providing you with the ‘how-to’ on recreating my Summer daytime glam look.
This makeup is perfect to wear if you’re a guest at a Wedding, going to a ladies day, or even Prom. The warm shades are just enough to give you definition but not too dark to be worn during the day.
The Peach Pink glitter is what really gives this look that added ‘Glam’!
The tutorial for this makeup can be seen here: https://youtu.be/p0IjXAwBENA
All the products used will be listed in the description bar of the video and on tomorrow’s blog post.
JIB5: Destiel, the PR nightmare and the potential queerbaiting
Destiel shippers’ hopes were in an all time high after Stairway to Heaven and Do You Believe in Miracles aired. Metatron’s acknowledgment of Castiel being in love with humanity or everything being about saving just one human seemed to leave things pretty clear. Some fans even called the ship demicanon or canon on Castiel’s side. Destiel shippers couldn’t be more excited for Season 10 and, after a season of a lot of suffering, all was well.
But it didn’t last long as all those hopes were quickly crushed after this weekend’s convention. Jus in Bello has celebrated its 5th edition with the participation of Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins among other members of the cast, as usual. Things started going downside for shippers yesterday during Jensen’s solo panel…
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
To celebrate the arrival of new seasons and our Color and Fade tools, the goal this weekend is to capture creative photos and videos that explore the playful world of color all around us. Here are some tips to get you started:
Challenge yourself to find colors that delight you or catch your attention unexpectedly. If you have a favorite color, keep it in mind as you explore and see where it appears. How can you see it like you never have before?
Seek out or create moments where color is the main subject and has a life of its own.
Finally, remember to have fun! Pair colors in unexpected ways, play with patterns and let your imagination run wild.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPcolorplay hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs and videos to the project. Any tagged image or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.
Today is a special day. Two wonderful astronomical events are occurring.
The first is that today is the longest day of the year. After today, the hours of daylight will start to get shorter again. This is known as the summer solstice.
The summer solstice, due to its naturally occurring role in nature’s flow of seasons, is part of many spiritual and religious traditions. Pagan spiritualities in particular viscerally tap into the natural energy of the holiday.
Today is the Light’s pinnacle crescendo.
What does the sun and daylight mean to you?
What does this time of year mean to you?
Take some time to contemplate a bit about your relationship with the circle of time and the yearly seasons.
How would you like to celebrate and to pay tribute to this day?
The second cool astronomical event is that it will be a full moon! The full moon hasn’t fallen on the solstice in nearly 70 years. As such, this is literally a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.
The full moon adds a live-wire energy to this day. It’s funny how the NYC subway can often be a gauge for the energies in the environment. On full moons, all the weirdos come out in full force.
Some additional suggestions for celebrating the solstice:
Go outside! Play, hike, walk amongst nature.
Do some divination.
Tarot, runes, cloud-gazing, whatever you like.
Bonfire! If that’s doable. Especially on a hilltop.
Meditation, prayer, contemplation.
Commune with your deity.
If you have a specific deity with whom you have a relationship, enjoin them to take part in the celebration too.
Give offerings, do some art, and play until you feel the deity’s presence too.
Feed some wild animals.
Build an altar if you don’t have one.
Watch the sun set.
Whatever you do, enjoy it! Today can be a fun day and you can make use of that.
Named for the world-renowned environmentalist, Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Maine is a great place to find peace and connect with nature on a quiet stroll, catching glimpses of bird and bunnies in the woods and on the beach. Open in all seasons, the refuge is always welcoming – but it’s especially amazing in the fall.
With free entrance tomorrow (October 11) to celebrate the start of Wildlife Refuge Week, now is the perfect time to visit your closest wildlife refuge! Enjoy the astounding views, learn about wildlife protection efforts, and don’t forget to share your experiences, memories and photos with #mywildliferefuge.
