Monday Links For The Week … How Is It Already December?

This weekend has been really lovely and relaxing … we spent a night at the Shangri-La hotel in Abu Dhabi and then yesterday was HUGO & DEREK’S 2ND BIRTHDAY … as well as the start of the UAE’s National Day celebrations … in the Marina there was a Boat Parade planned which was fun to watch from the balcony … I have another post planned to share some more of the photos from the parade … but here’s one I took on my phone …

Anyway … here are this week’s links … there were so many good ideas and things I came across while browsing the internet this last week so this will be a longer list than usual … some DIY … some gift ideas and even some Advent Calendar ideas in there too …

  1. DARK MATTER JEWELLERY … starting off with this one … one of my childhood friends who now lives in Seattle is making some amazing science/space inspired earrings on her etsy … they look amazing … currently she is only shipping within the US so if you happen to be stateside you should really check this stuff out 🙂
  2. ADORABLE PORTRAITS OF BATHING DOGS … I mean seriously the looks on some of these little dogs faces are priceless …
  3. HOMEWARD BOUND … a really touching story of how one man found his family again with the help of google maps … 
  4. THE NO BLIND SPOT REAR VIEW MIRROR … this would be really handy when driving round Dubai …
  5. SUGRU … this stuff just sounds incredible … I’d love to try it out …
  6. CUSTOM WORD PORTRAIT … a really cute idea … love this …
  7. OWNING CATS CAN INFLICT PERMANENT DAMAGE TO MENTAL HEALTH BUT NOBODY BOTHERED TO WARN US … and even if they did I don’t think I’d have cared … but I do have to say almost everything in that list has been true for us so far … and the rest … well they just haven’t happened yet …
  8. DIY COLOURFUL PAPER ADVENT CALENDAR … this is such a cute idea and great for kids …
  9. DEATH STAR ICE MOULD … for those Star Wars lovers our there … great gift idea too for a stocking …
  10. CATS REBORN AS EMBROIDERIES PEEKING OUT OF SHIRTS … these are just too adorable for words …
  11. R2D2 BABY COSTUME … possibly one of the cutest little baby outfit I’ve seen in a while …
  12. CUBBY … a coat/bag hook that also doubles up as a cubby hole for your wallet/key/etc … such a brilliant idea …
  13. SWANTS TUTORTIAL … cause who doesn’t want a sweater/jumper for their legs too??? AMAZING!
  14. A SIMPLE KNOT BRAID … I have yet to try this but it looks like fun …
  15. 2013’S BEST ADVENT CALENDARS … and finally if you don’t fancy making your own advent calendar this post has a list of some of the best you can buy …

That is it for this week …

Till next time …
