‘Pologies for the week of silence – yours truly spent a very long day last Tuesday being poked, curled, plucked and stuffed into cocktail dresses for her first (and probably last and only) modelling shoot. Long story. Suffice it to say, fashion people are stupid, but it was quite nice bein’ pretty for a day.
Anyways, now my head’s out of the clouds (though I’m in complete agreement with today’s quoted celebritah, Helena Christensen), here’s some powdered, corsetted, starved and coked-up links for you…
1) From beautiful people (albeit vain ones) to beautiful buildings, the Curious Expeditions “Compendium of Beautiful Libraries” should have you drooling if you’re a bibliophile. Although there are some notable exceptions. The library of the The Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de Escorial is one. Does the Beast’s library in “Beauty and the Beast” count too?
2) Possibly the most disturbing thing I’ve ever seen – got some luscious locks but strapped for cash? Bit thin on top and don’t fancy an acrylic rug? Buy, sell or auction off human hair (yes, you heard right) at HairWorks… *shudders*
3) This week’s YouTube clip turns back the pages of time to uncover for you the History of LOLcats… (perhaps hindsight should indeed be the best teacher, who knows…?)
