around the interweb

My life has been taken over by Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. When I am not feeding or playing with Mika, I am a slave to this book. I cannot put it down. I must.keep.reading. And I am more than 3/4 of the way through it.

I like how this is such an achievement for me. At the end of the day, when I have achieved nothing except a few chapters of this book, I still feel a sense of accomplishment. It’s a day well spent. However, had this been a day spent perusing the internet and reading multiple blogs, articles and websites I would not feel the same sense of accomplishment. I’d feel queasy and nauseas and desperate for some fresh air. How interesting.

Well despite my new reading obsession I somehow still have some cool stuff from online to share. How does that work? Hmmm.

You might have seen this awesome wee hair tutorial floating around the internet lately for ‘no-heat’ curls. Anyway, I decided to give it a go and it turned out pretty cool. My headband was a wee bit tight so my head just sorta hurt all night which is less than ideal. Note to self: buy a looser headband. Check out the original tutorial here. The girl is super cute! Here’s my before and after shots. Apologies for the lame photobooth quality.

Very Bad Poetry is possibly the most hilarious thing I’ve seen all week. I found it from one of my favourite blogs (Black Hockey Jesus) and this is his character’s poem.

I’ve been lurking around Pinterest lately and here’s a few favourite things I’ve found:

Recipe here. I’m making these today!

This website is called ‘Know What’s Fucking Crazy?‘ and he’s right. Most of those things are fucking crazy.

Plum – Like Netflix for baby clothes. Check it out. Boutique baby clothes in the size you need them, when you need them. It’s a cool concept.

That’s all. Tomorrow it’s one of my bestest friend’s birthdays. So today I am preparing. (Even though she lives in London… I totally need to celebrate!)
