DIY Natural Clay Mascara (that actually works) » Humblebee & Me Speaking of things I wasn’t sure I’d ever crack—mascara. There’s a reason this is my first entry of my third year of blogging. I have been trying to figure out mascara for ages now. Reading List: Favorite Titles in Young Adult Fiction Excerpts & Extras Reading List: Favorite Titles in Young Adult Fiction This is a list of some of my favorite titles in young adult fiction —there’s an emphasis on genre, because that’s what I read most, but some realistic titles as well.

Blog Amy Hicks’s Oakley the Bear Amy Hicks, winner of our 2012 photo contest, just released her first pattern! Meet Oakley the Bear. It makes me happy to see knitters try their hand at design. Everyone has their own unique approach and style. (The felt details on this guy are so sweet!) Fun Crafts With Used Plastic Every now and then we like to take a break from the big news headlines and explore the creative world. We know you love crafts, perhaps almost as much as you love recycling. We tried to think of an abundant resource that you regularly toss, and plastic was the first thing to come to mind. While we highly tout recycling all types of resins, we also love getting our hands dirty and making really cool stuff out of those bags under the sink or those bottles in the fridge.

Why Tom Hiddleston Should Be People's Sexiest Man Alive For 2012 When People revealed its Sexiest Man Alive for 2011, there was a public outcry when they chose Bradley Cooper over the beloved and memeworthy Ryan Gosling. (BuzzFeed even protested outside People‘s offices.) But with half a year til the next male celebrity is crowned, there could be an even greater upset: Tom Hiddleston‘s fans have fervently nominated the man we’ve come to know and love both in his role as Loki in The Avengers and just for being himself.

Travelling with Alex This pearl of Denmark has a special place in my heart, after having studied there for a year. And it’s of course a challenge to boil that down into a list of travel tips, but I’ll give it a go, for Olatz! First of all – know your hoods. It’s basically the centre, Nørrebro, Vesterbro and Christianshavn/Christiania that are relevant if you are in town for a few days. Nørrebro is the gentrified hipster area where everyone wants to live and hang out (and you should!), with Nørrebrogade and Dronning Louises bro (bridge) as orientation points, and then Assistens kirkegård in the middle.
