// Want to know the DIY recipes to all of your favorite junk foods? Now you can!

// Unpopular opinion: I don't like Beyonce (or her overzealous fans). Aw snap! I know y'all are going to have an opinion about this! Let's hear it!

What are you loving this week?


  1. The dog chasing it's leash made me laugh out loud! & I seriously want to paint an entire canvas with a q-tip and one of those toys now!

  2. Cat biscuits?! WHAT?! I need some of these pronto.

  3. i love the english bulldog just plopping down on their owner. lol that is how i feel right now! WHERE IS FRIDAY!?

  4. Oh my goodness, that polite elephant got to me! What a beautiful soul. Also...those art instillations are major.

  5. The letter from the Dad to his little girl about 'keeping him interested?' Tears!

  6. Eeep, Cat BISCUITS! OMG I need these in my life. SO CUTE.

    Smitten with Sunday

    Water Painted Dreams xxx

  8. Interested in the polish deal, but don't see an option to choose one color (vs a subscription). Please advise! thanks much!

  9. Gah the dogs... and the bat! <3

  10. I liked how the "Examples of Rape Culture" article pointed out that there is so much effort to educate girls on "how not to get raped" but a blatant lack of education for boys on how to respect women.

    I listened to a recording of Adam Savage telling the story of a talk he had with his young son about respecting women, especially in regards to internet porn. I was listening to it on my ipod on the subway and I had tears streaming down my face. It was the FIRST time I ever felt like a man came even close to understanding the hurt I feel when I see/hear about the things that exist in the world of internet porn. Here is the link if you want to check it out:


  11. That cat comic would be my son if the kitty wasn't so scared of him. He was playing with yarn today, though, and she totally sat still for some loves. So I guess yarn>personal safety. XDD


HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
