Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me this week online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat, and a picture.   

Getting your first pointe shoes is a very big deal! I'm amazed at the customization for the shoes highlighted in New York City Ballet's "Pointe Shoes." (via Victoria)

"Self-compassion and self-esteem both involve positive emotions toward the self. But self-esteem is about judging yourself positively: I am good. Or, unfortunately, if you can’t keep up that self-definition: I am bad. Self-compassion does not involve judgment or evaluation. It’s not about, “What type of person am I?” It’s just about: I’m suffering—can I respond to my suffering with kindness, understanding, caring, and concern?" from The Power of Self-Compassion

Elizabeth Taylor's diet is more interesting than many of the New York Diet's profiled in  NY Mag. It turns out she ate (and drank). (via Alejandra)

Interesting... ElliptiGo, an outdoor elliptical trainer, looks like a standup, seatless bicycle.

"If you, too, were fooled into thinking that sweet, chocolatey, hazelnut goop was actually good for you, visit for more information." People actually fell for Nutella being healthy? This makes me sad. Read your labels! (From here.)
