Channeling My Inner Nerd

Check out these fun glasses/USB drive I found on Like Cool! It also doubles as a book mark. If only they were real lenses...

Creativity Quiz

Take this quiz to find out how creative you are. I was "Hands On." I have a "natural flair for creativity at work and at home." Sounds about right.

Lego Art

Look at these adorable re-creations of famous paintings made out of legos! This one of the Arnolfini Wedding Portrait is probably one of my favs. You can view the rest of them here.

Craven Road W2

I found this new photo blog that I love called London Shop Fronts full of pictures of various dodgy little shops all over London. Every now and then I like to check it out to see if I find any shops from my old stomping grounds when I lived there. And finally I found a familiar face. This yummy little shop was right down the street from where I worked!

Obama Yourself

Over at my pal's site Shakin&Bakin she posted a link for this awesome site where you can make your own Obama Poster!! How cool is mine?!


Check out this sweet site where you can create your own magazine-esque fashion spread. I'm not entirely sure what purpose it has but it's fun and sort of makes you feel like a fashion editor for a few minutes. Here's a few fab ones that I whipped up.

I recently started reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and already totally love it. Lately, I read exclusively on the train to and from work, but I might make extra time to read at home because I can't wait to finish it. My big sister (she's older, not large) sent me this great book website today where I immediately looked this book up. It's called "What Should I Read Next?" and is sort of amazon-ish in that it gives you a list of recommended books you should read based on what you like. You just type in the name/author of a book you enjoy and it will compile a list of suggestions for you. Perfect! Although I'm not quite sure I agree with their Harry Potter alternatives. The Secret Garden?!? I think they can do better than that.
