How much cheese is in that cheese powder?
Cheese may be “milk’s leap toward immortality,” but until the development of processed cheese in the early twentieth century, it still readily spoiled.

Working w/ Brands  - 
 
Do you have a set contract for working with brands if you are getting paid or do you wait for them to provide you one? Would you bother if it is a free one-off thing? I'm just wondering if I should start formulating a general contract to make sure that content and photos are explicitly mine and companies are only allowed to use them to a certain extent.

Think before you "Pink". #breastcancerawareness  #donations #pinktober #cancerawareness  

I'm all for helping towards research, awareness and support, but I think it's good to find out where your money goes. I don't usually participate in most of the awareness events (i.e. walking, running, cycling, etc.) because when I look at the numbers, sometimes only half (or less than half) of it really go to the causes I'm trying to support.

Ugh, and that video of guys rubbing their faces against women's breasts to donate to cancer?! Disgusting. Keep your clothes on, skip Starbucks a few times and donate that money directly to organizations that would put it into good use.

"...well-meaning people are willing to buy pink products, even pay a little extra, because they think they are helping to do something to "cure" breast cancer or to provide "hope" to breast cancer patients. Why is this sad? Because those dollars spent on pink flowers, pink shirts, or a pink box of crackers or spaghetti sauce could be going to research, our only real "hope" of beating this horrible disease."

Are you kidding me? How on earth could a day where girls and women are encouraged to post and share photos of their braless breasts and to walk around with their nipples poking through their shirts be "supportive" for women who are living with or who have died from breast cancer?

This is my "gateway recipe" into Indian cooking. It was the very first dish the beau made for me and it remains my favorite to this day. After more than 2 years, I've finally made it myself and it was a lovely trip along memory lane. It's a hearty lentil soup made with masala -- great for warming up chilly autumn evenings.

I have to say that after 4 years of blogging, Wordpress and SEO still stumps me. This tutorial completely helpful. I'm going to make a blog post checklist. This should help me when I forget my SEO tasks.
