3C Crush, this week it’s about Karma, lovely writing and original ways to use plants

According to Wikipedia, karma is a word meaning the result of a person’s actions as well as the actions themselves. “It is a term about the cycle of cause and effect. According to the theory of karma, what happens to a person, happens because they caused it with their actions. It is an important part of many religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism.” Personally, I am spiritual but not religious. I respect others beliefs. But I do not believe that everything happens because a person caused it, especially if that something has been done in a previous life. Simply don’t believe in reincarnation. In terms of spiritual development, I do agree with the theory of karma though. It makes a person responsable for their own life and how they treat other people. Basically, it’s energy via thoughts, words and actions that comes back, in time, through other people. I like that concept.

Here are a few bloggers I am crushing for I think you should check as they are a perfect example of good energy and are spreading goodness through their words and actions. Lovely writing, great read.

The Main Paperpusher

Linda’s blog is pure joy to read and her comments often crack me up. For instance, she holds a series called Guest in Jest in which bloggers are invited to write an amusing story. Tempted? Go ahead. Submit her a text. I know it would make her very happy.


“Husband, dad, programmer, comic collector and proud Yorkshireman. I have no idea why im here or why im writing but i rather enjoy it. no great fan of punctuation.” This is how Michael describes himself. Frankly, I just don’t know why he did not start to write sooner. I find him to be very inspiring. Must read these two utterly amazing texts: Deepest desires – room 101 and Dear Earthlings.

Book Reviews by Shalini

I just recently discovered Shalini’s blog and I must say I find it very useful. Sometimes, she even writes poems of her own. “Rarely these words come. Not sure how and where. Maybe when my heart is heavy, it does”, she says. Believe me, when that happens, it is magical. See for yourself this beautiful piece here.

The cage Bird Sing

Dream. Believe. Achieve. This is Himanshi Shukla blog’s motto. And this post here is “in resonance” with it. A good read from a talented blogger who has a way with words. Do visit her blog. It is worth it. The only problem I see is you’ll want to read more than just one post. In fact, you might become addicted to this young woman beautiful soul.

An idea for Movember 

It’s Movember time! This month we will see a lot of men growing a moustache. I do support the cause even if I’m not a big fan of moustaches (did like Magnum PI though). But I certainly love Geoffroy Mottart’s floral moustache and beard arrangements. Work of art! Do visit his site if you want to see more of his brillant installations.

You are a Gem

Another beautiful way to use plants. This amethyst crystal air plant from Air Friend makes a perfect gift for a special someone far away you wish to send some love. Available on Etsy here.

The World’s Weirdest Gardens

I like Liz Hensler from Do The Thing. Just like me she doesn’t have a green thumb. But she manages to grow a plant without killing it. Me ? I manage to kill cacti! A friend recently gave me an orchid. I am trying to keep it alive but I’m afraid the poor plant won’t see Christmas! Funny thing is I love plants and gardens. And Liz has found the world’s weirdest gardens. I would like to visit The Alnwick Poison garden and the Bookworm Gardens (as I love children books too). See Liz’s post here.

Thanks for your visit. Stay strong, stay stylish! – Merci de visiter mon blogue. Soyez forte, soyez stylée!
