Links of the Week: April 8, 2011

It’s images like this that get me through the day sometimes. Image found via galadarling.

I’ve yet to write about it, but this past weekend was a boatload of fun, family and, errr… we’ll go with frolicking. My sisters and cousin drove up to visit for the weekend and we had a blast. So this entire week has been like coming down from a really fun party drug (which I promise I know nothing about). My apartment has been TOO quiet and there are a lack of snack foods, giggles, and watching of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. But life goes on… until the next sister/cousin weekend of course!

  • I almost fell out of my desk chair when I stumbled upon this amazing idea. 1-Up rugs? I am totally making one of these guys, but maybe a throw blanket version.
  • I’m always down for a smart chuckle.
  • Rommel breaks down the similarities between comedians and  track and field athletes.
  • Twinkie Chan’s post about her trip to London’s Borough Market made me reeeeeeally miss London. Like, alot.
  • Lately I’ve been feeling like work – whether it’s my day job, freelance gigs, or projects for my craft biz – has taken over my life. It was nice and reassuring to read this post by Elsie Flannigan.

That’s all for this week! I hope your weekend is as bright and sunny! The weather in San Francisco has been quite pleasant… except for the fact that the temp has dipped down to really effing cold. The sun is deceiving.


Links of the Week – March 18 & 25, 2011

NSYNC in their memorable Disney Channel concert performance. Check out the pants. Whatever happened to JNCO jeans?

Happy Friday, folks. I hope you’re not like me and have that horrid song by Rebecca Black stuck in your head. I’m sure you know the one. I’m sad that it’s the song I now associate with Friday instead of NSYNC’s “Just Got Paid” (Friday ni-eet). Oh well.

Moving along, I didn’t get to posting my links from last week, so this week is a double-decker-dose of linky goodness. Hope you’re hungry for some KNOWLEDGE (and a little nonsense):

That’s all folks. Have a lovely weekend, and don’t forget that tomorrow is Saturday. We so excited. (I promise, that’ll be my last reference to that song, ever).

First of all, HAPPY 311 DAY!!! Second of all, we’re getting closer to my birthday! It’s on Tuesday but I’m celebrating on Saturday. So. Excited. I feel like my 27th year will be the best yet. Moving right along, here are some articles I read this week that I wanted to share.

  • I’ve been thinking about Social Media a lot as a way to engage with customers, and I was happy to stumble upon this quick post by Jacob Cass where he talks about his experience with Vegas hotels in the Twitterverse.
  • Alex Smith discusses the impact of social media on search results. Businesses and brands need to be prepared!
  • I love most girl bands, especially rock and roll girl bands. It was cool to learn about a new one this week. Thanks, Electric Ant Zine for sharing info and a few songs by The Welders on their blog.
  • My sister is getting married in November and I’m her Maid of Honor, so I totally have wedding stuff on the brain. I loveeee this Video Save-the-Date that Christina posted on her super cute blog. So original.
  • I love these What We Wore posts by James (of Bleubird Vintage) and her family. Such a hip bunch! Totally shows that you don’t have to lose your funky style when you “grow up” and have kiddos.

That’s all for now! I’m so excited to see The Craft at the Castro theater tonight with my buddies and relive my teenage years of being totally obsessed with everything witch-related… as I’m sure millions of other girls were in the late 90s. Anyway, have a safe and relaxing weekend!

Poster by Barbara Kruger, 1989 (scanned from Suffragettes to She Devils by Liz McQuiston)

Hey, all. So I’ve decided that Tweeting my favorite links is just not enough. I want to document them here in my blog as well. Why? Why not! [click to continue…]
