Some hairdresser gossip from Alisagirard.

Viddy, the DIY Pinhole Camera Kit

I am in love with this new Kickstarter project, the VIDDY.

The world's cutest DIY medium format & 35mm pinhole camera. Fun, educational and takes less than 30 minutes to make!

Each VIDDY kit comes with everything you'll need to complete the camera, including a reclaimed medium format spool, a precision laser-cut pinhole, a red light-proof window, split pins, a sticker sheet and clear illustrated instructions alongside an easy to follow how-to video.
Take a look at the project, I want one!

Oxford Street Lego Bus Stop

Have you seen the curious Bus Stop in London?
In one of the most busy streets in London, Oxford Street, they had change one of their Bus Stops to put one made entirely with Lego pieces!
I enjoyed taking all the photos, the problem is I made them with my iphone... so they are not good as if they are made with my camera...

Impossible Bottles by Rafael Varona

"Impossible bootles" is the title of an ongoing series showing worlds kept in what appears to be a vessel. As for the original impossible bottles they show objects that don´t really seem to fit through the mouth of the bottle. Rafael Varona found them to be an amazing inspiration to show animated worlds that are somehow limited or finite yet to include figures that observe their surroundings and experience it, maybe got lost but see the bottle, the boundaries and ask themselves how they ever got into it...

Fit To Be Dead by Nancy G. West

Fit To Be Dead by Nancy G. West
Genre: Mystery, Humor
Source: NetGalley
Rating: 4/5

Aggie, a thirty something columnist has decided to stay fit. It's not a bad decision if you want to have a long and healthy life... The only problem is that the first day of her new healthy life she saves a woman from being electrocuted in the pool, was it just an accident or an attempt to murder?
She will try to solve this mystery with her girlfriend Meredith but keep it hidden from her detective friend Sam.

"An electrical surge could have changed Fit and Firm to Fit but Dead. Not good advertising for a health club."

""You really loved him, didn't you?" "Yes. And you know what? Love never stops.""

This book will make you laugh about some of the strange things that happens in a gym. Because, you go to a gym to stay fit. However, should the employee be pretty and flirt with all the members? Or in the restaurant within the gym, should it be a must that all the food is vegetarian? Or all the uniforms had to be so ugly?
The Dear Aggie column is hilarious, the questions are quite strange, but Aggie always solve them with the perfect answer!
I enjoyed reading this book, with all the funny and dangerous situations Aggie has to face. The only problem I found is that it was like I missed some information of the characters, like there is more history about them that I didn't know. I hope I will know more of them in the next book "Dang Near Dead".

London Underground

This week I was in London with a friend, enjoying the sun and walking a lot. I have been in London quite a few times, and I always find something different, original and curious!
Today I want to share with you how the Londoners have garnished their underground and the bus stops. The photos are not quite good, I took them with my mobile, but I think you will love them...
Here are some puzzles I found in different Undergrounds like Piccadilly, Baker Street, Camden... maybe if you are in London you can share with me if you find more! :)

Here are some quotes I found in the Earl's Court Underground, to have energy through all the day...

Dilly and Wolf Snacks

Every now and then, I like to eat a few snacks instead of the first dish. Today I tried the brand Dilly and Wolf, British hand made snacks with flavours inspired in their travels. But you can't forget that these snacks are healthy too, with chickpea chips and peas instead of nuts!
I tried the Chisps, a blend of chickpeas, grains and pulses with Celtic Seaweed and Hebridean sea salt, sprinkled with a delicious punchy malt vinegar.
In the beginning the flavour it was a bit strange, because you expect the texture of a chip but they are Chisps made with chickpeas! I love them! :)
The Nusters, a hot and spicy snack is made using their special nut blend mixed with roasted British peas, wasabi and chilli.
It was easy to try, but too spicy! I drink almost all my beer with just two Nusters!

Rating: 2/5

Are you a Doctor fan?
This book will take you to the Cashel planet where there is a romantic trouble, and the tenth Doctor will have to help the two lovers!
Will the Doctor be able to help these lovebirds before is too late?

"The Doctor stepped out of the TARDIS and closed the door behind him. He looked around at the planet Cashel. It looked typically standard. Trees. Rocks. Three moons in the sky."
"I come in peace, hope not leave in pieces. They call me the Doctor. Whoever they are. But they do, and so can you, if you wish. But if you can come up with a better name, I'll take that."

This is a short Dr Who adventure, with a little bit of chemistry, love and resurrected men. Ready?

This autumn/winter you will wear your breakfast always with you... :)
