Remember that MTV show ‘Diary’ with the tagline “You think you know. You have no idea” that followed celebrities around and brought us a behind the scenes look into a day in the life?

And finally, one of the our favorite things we saw on the interwebs this week. It’s called The Love Competition and it is beautiful. From a science perspective it’s pretty freaking neato. From a yoga (and human) perspective, it really says something about metta, meditation and our own loving thoughts. Enjoy 🙂
