Helloooo Friday evening! Where have you been all my life?
» First things first: I'm sorry that there was no Talontastic Thursday post yesterday, but here - have a nail-related link for your troubles. WAH Nails are a London nail salon who post nail art porn (like the ladybirds above) several times a day. Pretty much guaranteed to inspire.
» Off on holliers and worried about your hair getting fried? Well, worry not - I gots you covered in this week's Herald column!
» I bought an Ikea Expedit bookcase for my office nook on Tuesday. It actually looks grand as is - and needless to say my productivity has soared since its installation - but I've bookmarked Pepper Design's round-up of prettified Expedits in the event that I decide to jazz it up in the future.
» Of course, rather than faff about with tacking on painted or patterned custom-cut particleboard (the Expedit is backless so that it can function as a room divider as well as a bookcase), I could always just make like John & Sherry and decorate the wall behind it.
» Last Expedit mention (promise!) - check out this Ikea Hacker guide for instructions on how to fashion a hanging file box that will fit perfectly in its cubbyholes.
» In foodie news, I haz mostly been making
Now, tell me this: what are you up to for the weekend? I am going to try and pare down my wardrobe - hasn't been done in 4 years, oops - and am thinking that an online jumble sale stylee thing might be a fun way to thin out some of the contents. (Although I think you know me well enough at this stage to realise that what will actually happen is that I will just rearrange them and refuse to let go of anything!)
