Monday Links For The Week … A Bunch Of Randoms …

Hello Everyone … its been a relaxing lazy weekend really around here … the off roading trip ended up being cancelled so I was home on Friday … Perry and I had a lazy day watching the Soprano’s and playing with the kittens …

Saturday was another lazy day … we went out for breakfast and had a swim in the pool … first time we’d actually used it this year … now the weather is warming up there is no excuse anymore … it was generally quite a lovely weekend … yummy food and it was nice spending it together just the two of us … next couple of weeks are going to be busy so having a relaxing weekend was something we both needed …

photo 2The temperature is seriously starting to ramp up now … winter is most certainly over … and having started my new job yesterday so far things are going well … the people I’m working with are lovely and so far I’m enjoying it …

Anyway below are a bunch of random links and video’s that I’ve been enjoying this last week … hope it keeps you occupied on your lunch break!

  1. GIGANTIC LOVE HEARTS CREATED FROM PIECES OF POP CULTURE … really cute and lovely …
  2. PIZZA TWISTS … sounds yummy … and probably not a bad idea for a quick meal …
  3. DIY CANDLE JARS … this is so practical and looks good too …
  4. CITRUS HERB CHICKEN … YUM … going to try this one soon …
  5. AMAZING STOP MOTION MUSIC VIDEO … this is stunning … love the stop motion in this …
  6. HOW TO COOK A $16 MUFFIN … well it looks like you need some really crazy ingredients to get muffins that cost that much to make!
  7. BLUE CROW MEDIA … this website is brilliant … a company has created APPS and MAPS of some of the best places to go to in London for Coffee, a Cocktail and Beers … they also have some maps for New York and LA too … the beer one would be useful if you were organising a Pub Crawl or Pub Golf type event …
  8. THE MINIATURE KNIT SHOP … such cute and adorable baby clothes … although very expensive for something they will probably only wear a couple times …
  9. TURN YOUR INSTANT PHOTOS INTO REUSABLE NOTES/TO-DO LISTS … Personalised fridge magnets … brilliant!
  10. CONCRETE CHARM IN THE RAIN … pretty romantic pictures of different cities in the rain …
  11. THIS NAP IS NOT HAPPENING … I saw this on facebook this last week and it cracked me up … this child is refusing a nap in an amazing fashion …
  12. COOKIE APRONS … you know for those times you want to be all dressed up while cooking … some of these are so elaborate they almost look like the front half of a wedding dress …
  13. THE PARIS LETTERS PROJECT … I have not seen anything like this before … such an adorable idea … and who wouldn’t want to get a beautifully hand painted and personalied letter from Paris???
  14. THE FLAMINGO HELICOPTER … beautiful yet somewhat crazy bit of art … I wonder if it actually flies …
  15. 1000 PUGS … A reader pointed me towards this website and the associated blog THE DAILY PUGLET … and I’ve been hooked on it ever since …
  16. THE ULTRA EVER DRY … this looks like it would have some pretty great applications in every day life …
  17. CENTRAL PARK FROM ABOVE … A new perspective …
  18. HEALTHY FOOD – CAN YOU TRAIN YOURSELF TO LIKE IT? … I have sometimes wondered about this myself … there are certain foods which I used to hate as a child but as I’ve gotten older and eaten them more my tastes have changed and adapted … some of these are now firm favourites …
  19. GREEN ELEPHANT … this is a brilliant idea … the woman who runs this ETSY store basically buys up old board games from Charity shops that cant be sold (due to missing pieces of damage) and upcycles them into notebooks, diaries, USB sticks, etc and sells them on … sometimes she has enough miss matched board games that she can make a complete one and returns the complete game to the Charity shop so they can sell it on … how great is that?
  20. TOP 5 JOB SKILLS YOU DIDN’T LEARN IN UNIVERSITY/COLLEGE … SO TRUE!

Thanks for tuning in …

Till next time …
