Having a soda while waiting for my ride. Cooling down has never been this happening. #royal #orangesoda #fanta #whyisitstillhot?

It was the summer of 1999. I had just turned 10 years old, school had let out, and I was in possession of a newly acquired boom box. Nights were spent on the back porch, listening to the local top 40 and pretending to be at a cool house party filled with beautiful teenagers. On weekends, I would stay over with my grandparents spend all night watching MTV, dancing and kicking to the sounds and excitement of every music video. Whenever my parents would drag me out, headphones would promptly be jammed on my ears.  

This was the first time in my life I had started paying attention to music, and I adored its ability to make even the dreariest day seem beautiful and exciting. 

I still do.

Steal My Sunshine was a prominent part of the soundtrack to that summer. The theme of the song (drug use) flew ten miles over my head, but I could hear the party. It has a beat that demands the spastic swaying of ten year old hips and lyrics that demand to be hummed to. Just don’t pay too close attention to what they are saying or the subject matter might bum you out to the point of killing your groove. (Unless that’s your sort of party. I’m not here to judge.)

Len’s “Steal My Sunshine” is a decent pop song and a fun nostalgia trip into the late 90’s. A must have for summertime mix tapes, soundtracks, and road trips. 6 out of 10 whatever-I-decide-my-rating-system-is.

I was sent this gorgeous tutorial by LDP (follow her blog! It’s gorgeous!) and new exciting things got in the way of posting for a while, so here you go, finally!  She has loads of other fab tutorials on her blog too, such as how to make amazing Dr Who converse!

I would highly recommend this tutorial!  Books are the most commonly thrown away item given to charity shops in the UK.  If you are UK based there’s a great charity called Healthy Planet with various Books for Free shops across the UK, see locations here!

"DIY: Recycled Book Planters

This tutorial came complete with a mild existential crisis. I’ve wanted to make a craft project with books for ages now, however the thought of slicing up a tiny universe for my own selfish needs has always been too traumatic for me to bear. I eventually convinced myself that my charity shop book discoveries were only going to sit on a shelf until someone else threw them away if I didn’t buy them and use them, so why not turn them into something beautiful?
1. Start by smearing wood glue along the sides of the book, to secure the pages together. If you plan on using more than one book for the planter, glue them together without putting glue in the area you intend to cut, as this will make it more difficult to cut through.
2.Mark the area you intend to cut out, where your plant will go.
3.Use a craft knife to cut out the marked area. It may be hard to cut through the cover of the book initially, but just keep going - it’ll slice through eventually. :)
4.Once the area is as deep as you want it to be, glue the piece of plastic bag into the cut area, and trim the edges to be level with the cover of the book. This will stop water and dirt leaking into the book once your plant is inside.
5.Put your plant into the book, and look after it as your new pot plant.

So sick of people who pretend their problem is with the word “feminism” rather than the concept of gender equality.

Salutation

O generation of the thoroughly smug and thoroughly uncomfortable,
I have seen fishermen picnicking in the sun,
I have seen them with untidy families,
I have seen their smiles full of teeth
and heard ungainly laughter.
And I am happier than you are,
And they were happier than I am;
And the fish swim in the lake
      and do not even own clothing.

-Ezra Pound
