I have to start with Maria Gudrun Runarsdottir or maja paja. Her photos draw me in every time. There's something so foreign, so mystical about each and every one of her pictures.
She has a cute little daughter, that she dresses in the most gorgeous clothing:
She lives in Iceland:
And she takes such fantastic photos of people. I always wonder whether it's the light in Iceland that makes the skin of the persons look so pale and ivory-like or if the people do in fact have that sort of skin tone...
Check out her stream. You'll probably spend hours..

1 cup red lentils (peeled)
3 cloves of garlic
1 piece ginger root
1 large carrot
3 sticks of celery
1 red bell pepper or red pepper
1 cup canned tomatoes or tomato sauce
2 tablespoons of red curry paste
1 cube vegetable stock
¼ teaspoons of cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon of garam masala
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of curry powder
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
a pinch of salt
2 cups of water or milk
3 tablespoons greek or turkish yoghurt to serve
Mince the peeled shallots, garlic and ginger and fry them in a Dutch oven or large pan with a lid on low heat. Add diced carrot, celery and red pepper and let soften for a few minutes. Then add red curry paste, cinnamon, garam masala spice, turmeric and curry powder and stir well. If you like your curry very spicy, add chili powder or additional chopped chili peppers.
Pour in the canned tomatoes or tomato sauce, add the vegetable stock, sugar and salt and stir for a minute. Finally add the lentils and water or milk, stir once again and cover with a lid. Let simmer on low heat for at least half an hour (check occasionally if you need to add more liquid).
Transfer portions into small bowls, top each with a tablespoon of yoghurt and serve with warm garlic naan and/or basmati rice.

I also found these lovely glass containers at Indiska. Usually I write the spice names straight onto the glass which is annoying when you want to change the contents. So, now i used the paper tape and i love how they turned out. I reckon I'll buy some more of these pretty jars before they are out of stock.
