Wow, this is a bit awkward, I appear to have reached my 700th post, and apparently this is my fourth year of blogging here, wow. I guess I’ll just share some pretty internet things with you because my tabs bar is pretty full.

Today was very uneventful, other than applying for four picture editing jobs today and getting no response as of yet. I also hung out with my kitten, she’s pretty neat but quite dumb. She kept going downstairs and forgetting I was still here so she would call out, then I would shout down to her and she would come running up chirping at me, adorable but a bit stupid.

These have been floating around Tumblr and all kind of other blogs, they’re so cute, if only they weren’t so much and so far away.

Both: Me & Zena
‘Bobby Dazzler’ Pill Box Ring, £29
‘Write On’ Pencil Bangle, £44

Me & Zena have been posting the best jewellery on their Facebook this week, these are definitely the two that I’m most tempted by for when I have a few more pennies, and they have the cutest names too!

I’m so super-psyched that The Maccabees’ new album is dropping on Monday, there are far too many ‘Given to the Wild’ teasers around. I just want the thrill of listening to all-new songs on an all-new album. If you happen to be a Maccabees fan, they’ll be doing Channel 4’s 360 Sessions on Thursday 12th January at 12:50am.

This week, you should totally check out Hannah Curson’s blog about the ‘Frame Wall’ she’s currently working on , she’s posted some neat craft ideas and has even given me inspiration to start my own similar collection. Who knew that a bunch of mismatched frames could still look so stylish?

I suppose that now I’m living with a cat fulltime again I have a right to go a bit ‘cat lady’. This looks like so much fun and could be a great way to put my nail art pens to use
A tutorial for this manicure can be found on Polish You Pretty.

Artist, Yayoi Kasuma let a whole bunch of kids loose with coloured stickers on her ‘domestic installation’ at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane.

  • The Dainty Squid’s Friday Favourites — This is my favourite feature on this blog and she’s posted the most awesome things this week, even though I have enough mugs, I think I need the one featured in this post. And that noticeboard has provided so many possibilities for my someday home.
  • My CreativePool profile — So, I did a bit on this today, I do feel a bit like the website is a bit beyond my reach but I’m sure it won’t hurt to have it properly there and maybe something will come from it.
  • Erin Hanson’s latest Want/Need ImageSo true.
  • In Order — Great Etsy shop featured in the latest Dainty Squid Friday Favourite, it sells awesome chalk boards with storage. God I love storage, perhaps one of the main thing I’m looking forward to when I finally move out is the shelves I’m going to get myself.
