    "It's been a wet Summer in Austria," our host said. And she was right. We expected clear skies here in Reith bei Seefeld but it was not to be. We woke up to rain. Even the mountains in front of our terrace were covered with clouds and mist. Still, we thought, we should see the Austrian Alps somehow. That's what we came for. So we drove to nearby Bergbahnen Rosshütte and took a cable car up. The ride up to the summit was fun. It took two different cable cars, the first to the middle station, then a second one to the top. In winter, you would also be taking ski lifts to ski down the slopes but…

    It was not long ago that we highlighted some stories of how people touch other lives through the use of the Internet and social media.

Sometimes we even wonder if there’s any good news in this world left at all. But of course there is.

    There are plenty of different smartphones on the market these days and they come loaded with all sorts of features. From an elegant and beautiful design to a good quality camera for that fame-worthy selfie, all these features matter when you’re considering a new phone.

  • Freelance Vs. In-House: Which Produces The Best Designers?

    Addison Duvall
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:01 am
    One of my favorite things, besides design, food, and writing about design and food, is perturbing my fellow designers with strange questions. You guys should try it sometime; it’s really fun. Anyway, today I was thinking about the dynamic of an in-house work environment, and how it compares to freelancing. I’ve done both, and I definitely have some thoughts on the matter. Does the uncertainty and ever-changing nature of freelancing produce designers with sharper, more adaptable skills? Or does the social, fast-paced, and ordered workflow of an agency or design firm create more…

Everywhere you turn you just can’t get away from the stuff. Whatever medium you can think of, chances are it’s covered with Verizon ads selling you its high-speed Internet service (Can I have my money now?). Not even the world of escapism is safe from corporate advertising. Advertisers are quick to use a new medium to push their wares and this is no exception when it comes to TV and movies.

  • 10 Amazing Raw Desserts + A Giveaway

    militza
    17 Sep 2014 | 7:54 am
    A few years back, I developed this little habit that wasn’t doing me any good: I ate an entire fruit & nut chocolate bar, every single night after dinner. This lasted for weeks! Of course I wouldn’t let myself keep a bunch of chocolate in the house  – no way – I would wait until the craving got really bad, around 7pm, and then beg my husband to walk with me to the neighbourhood shop, feeling guilty along the way. Food should not be eaten that way. Obviously once in a while a treat is fine, but when I like something (and tell me if this happens to you) I…

I got the inspiration for this recipe from a popular brand that will go unnamed… it rhymes with Hush. I love their cleansers, but making it at home means we can save a lot of money and avoid the preservatives that otherwise need to be used. The idea is that you make a batch and store it in your fridge. It will…

    For the first years of marriage, my husband and I ate buttered toast every single morning. Not because we were lazy or boring –  we just love toast. It wasn’t necessarily great for our energy levels or our waistlines though. Now that we eat mostly green shakes and healthy breakfasts, we can see the difference that breakfast choices make. I think breakfast is more than just the food you eat – it can be a daily ritual, your time to lay down healthy intentions for yourself. When you start the day by making the choice to feel your best, it sets the tone for a…

    I once heard that if you’re renting or buying a home, a good way to check how well it’s been maintained, is to check the oven. If there’s baked on mess from years of lasagnas – it’s not a good sign! The oven is often neglected and if it’s gotten bad, it’s not an easy mess to clean up. That’s when we need to use strong oven-cleaners, but these things are one of the most toxic products you can clean with. Classified as hazardous – they’re incredibly corrosive, full of harsh chemicals and you don’t need that anywhere…
