Little Bits for a Monday

Little Bits for a Monday

November 5th, 2012

Good morning all! I hope you all had a wonderful Fall weekend. This morning I’m excited to share a new favorite with you, the talented Nicolas Jaar. Jaar’s music is cerebral and emotive (what he self-describes as “blue-wave”), drawing inspiration from both his fellow-Chileans and minimal techno. You can listen to one of my favorite tracks, Colomb, by clicking play below. There are a handful of other songs to hear on Jaar’s website, linked above. Enjoy!

One of my favorite things about Pinterest is discovering and trying new delicious recipes. I recently found one such amazing recipe for a Swedish smörgåstårta, which to put it simply, is a sandwich cake. Ah the Swedes…

While browsing, I’d also seen a pin for making your own photos poster-sized for a measly $4.99. Elise and Emma of the blog, A Beautiful Mess, tracked this down to Kinko’s “blueprint copies”. See their method here. Genius on a budget.

Finally, I thought you might enjoy this video, which is the delightful combination of funny and endearing. I’m sure at least some of you remember the Jimmy Kimmel challenge for parents at Christmas. Well here is one sweet little girl’s reaction to his latest parental challenge: tell your child you ate all of their Halloween candy.
