Summer Solstice

Being that today is the longest day of the year, it is important to take into account just how much time you will have to spend absorbing sunshine and warmth. According to , Germany will have four extra seconds to bask in warmth before the moon and stars come out to play. With that time, it is your decision how to enjoy it. Whether you decide to go out for a night on the town, exercise, or just watch television, it's important to be grateful for such time. I've decided that since I have such an enormous amount of time to love life, these are the things I've come up with to consider doing:

1. Take the shortest drive ever
2. Read a book
3. Discover a new band
4. Write a short story in record time
5. Sunbathe on the sidewalk
6. Check email
7. Take a walk
8. Visit a neighbor
9. Take photographs of the clouds
10. Sit with friends/boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband and gossip about work and how much it sucks

I hope you all enjoy your summer solstice. This is the longest day of the year. Take advantage of it!

Motivation in a sugar-coated video pill

Need a lighter under your bum to motivate you to start a project, or perhaps even a diy business? Here are some great resources I've found by Internet trawling to assist you in doing just that.

The insanely pretty prettymperfect from livejournal's T Shirt Surgery has happily modernized ye olde MS Paint tutorial of yesteryear (or rather, of 5 days ago) by starting a new series of video podcasts. C'est vrai; she teaches you how to easily make a simple babydoll top quite like this one^
And yes! She's taking requests for more video tutorials, you lazy-poos, you.

It's no secret that I think reconstructed vintage is the coolest thing since KFC began to offer macaroni & cheese. Preloved, based in Canada, is probably my latest favourite reconned-vintage store. On their site, they've posted this cool video from around 2005- a clip from Fashion File showing how their business works, including the selection, design and construction process. Yummy, and no danger of clogged arteries here!

Also loving: the new threadheads podcast, the fact that all of readymade magazine's archives are available online (and are searchable!), Sanjaya running for I Love New York Season 2, Henry Cavill (the succexy Duke of Suffolk on the Tudors).

Trying not to get carpal tunnel from all of this typing I've been doing lately (but not on the blog, haha... still finishing up exams- sorry for slow posts!)
