Out and about

In case you are wondering where I have been after a bit of a blogging flurry at the end of last month - I have been guest-writing for my fabulous writer friends, some of whom were featured in the Christmas Reads post.

So, while I was off the Mind Lively horizon, I haven't been slacking entirely.

Just...Beauty
- a guest post with the incredible Diane Nelson. Pondering the split between inner and outer beauty, when it may have occurred and why it is not doing us any favors.

Cooking with color - the next installment of Mama Masha's Kitchen with Mandy Ward's Welcome to Wherever...

Featured artist of the month - also with Welcome to Wherever... (landed that one totally by accident).
