I am completely smitten by this collection of videos created by Dina Amin. On Fridays she picks a random product, disassembles it, examines it and makes a stop motion story with its parts. This is delightful!
In case you ever wondered what the fastest way is to alphabetize your bookshelf. Now you know.

Minutiae is designed to record mundane moments with no time to pose nor polish shots. The app was created as a response to the polished, carefully selected images we put on Facebook and Instagram. Instead of weddings, pets and brunch, Minutiae wants its users to capture the random, often boring things that happen in between.
As someone who created a 200 page book celebrating “The Beauty in the Ordinary” in 1999 as my thesis, this makes my heart sing.

Last week I had the absolute pleasure to meet Vicki Saunders, the founder of SheEO, a global community of women radically transforming how we finance, support, and celebrate female innovators. SheEO’s goal is to reach 1M Activators, 10,000 women-led Ventures and a $1B perpetual fund to support women for generations to come.
I. LOVE. THIS!
Yes to radical generosity and women supporting women!
