I must be extremely hungry this week because most of the links I’ve gathered seem to be about food…oh well! 😉 A bit late this week, but Happy Thursday!

Maybe I should blame the book I’m currently reading, Ann Mah’s new novel, “Mastering the Art of French Eating: Lessons in Food and Love From a Year in Paris” (a clever play on Julia Child’s quintessential cookbook title). I’m enjoying reading all about Mah’s delightful adventures in learning the origins of French cuisine. — Amazon

Who ever said playing with food isn’t a good thing? This mother from Malaysia sure has an artful talent for transforming her daughter’s meals into edible Halloween masterpieces — The Kitchen 

Yum! These Frida Kahlo sugar cookies are as adorable as they are yummy-sounding. Plus, I’m pretty sure this was a sign for me to get started on my Halloween costume…hint hint — A Beautiful Mess

In celebration of Food Day, the EWG came out with a handy shopping guide, “Good Food on a Tight Budget”. The EWG’s nutrition team analyzed about 1,200 types of food and handpicked the best to be included in the guide. The guide includes the healthiest foods that can be found at good prices, with the fewest pesticides, contaminants and artificial ingredients. Check it out! I know I’ll want to study up on this before hitting the supermarket — Environmental Working Group

This video for swimwear designer, Karla Colletto’s ’14 cruise collection seems very Wes Anderson-inspired and I highly approve — Refinery 29 

Expected to fetch between $500,000-$750,000 at auction at Sotheby’s, this gorgeous Leica digital camera is drool-worthy. Based on the Leica-M model which costs $7,000, it was designed by an Apple’s Chief of Design, Jony Ive — The Verge

I cannot BEAR these super adorable donuts from Japan — Rocket News 

Japan always knows how to do design and innovation best. Check out this amazing office building where a corporate setting is totally transformed by the presence of in-office, urban farming facilities. The space is complete with 200 species of fruit, vegetables and rice which are maintained and harvested by office workers. The produce eventually ends up in the office cafeteria. — Spoon Tamago

One designer decides to reply to text messages by handwriting her responses using calligraphy. A cool way to use handwriting and explore our texting addiction — Huffington Post 
I go ga-ga for any camel-branded item because it was my college’s mascot and that means I’m guilty of buying anything with camels on it. Like this new J.Crew merino wool sweater — J.Crew
I haven’t stopped dreaming about owning this limited edition lip color in Lust for Life from ILIA Beauty. I do need to slow down on my beauty purchases this month though. Lust for Life is such a perfect dark berry stain for fall — ILIA Beauty
