This is a quite spectacular time-lapse video of a hot air balloon festival. You are never too old to appreciate a balloon (or several hundred!)

It’s also worth checking out Roadtrippers.com’s YouTube channel as their other videos are pretty great too!

Innovative Thinking

Interactive CV

I stumbled across this interactive resume for a chap called Robby Leonardi. What a great idea!

This is much more eye-catching that a boring side of A4 filled with boasting of work achievements. I hope he’s in work because this is truly a fresh approach to job seeking.

The future!

Mab Cleaner

Dyson has its own prestigious award for design concepts and the winner was recently announced. Here is Electrolux’s own version of similar thinking, The Mab.

I meant to post this on Halloween but got side-tracked by creating my Halloween Costume for a party (no photos on here – too horrific!).

I thought this was quite funny and worth a post. Ever wondered what happened to Wednesday Addams after the marvellous Addams Family Values? Well she went on to almost lead a normal life evidenced here in these videos chronicling her day-to-day life. Be sure to check out all the videos as they’re all evilly quirky!

Creative Mum Illustrates Her Babies Dreams

Nap-time

Creative artist Queenie Liao clearly has a baby that likes to sleep a lot! Here she puts her creativity to work in creating dreamscapes with her baby taking the spotlight.

Something quite sweet about this. She must have a very content little baby that is happy to sleep and pose for her all day long. Having said that, that poor little baby being propped up and prodded all day long 🙂

Olivia Wilde

(And A Few You Did)…

Here’s a link to Empire Magazine’s feature on the stars of Hollywood that have changed their names for one reason or another.

You know these types of things come up regularly in pub quizzes, so swot up! My favourite has to be that of Hollywood starlet Olivia Jane Cockburn (better known as Olivia Wilde).
