reposting again because this was the best drawing of me ever
In need of some Daily fitspiration to get off your hiney and get groovin’? These hilarious vintage photos of the way women used to work out will do just the trick!
obsession with size, weird and wacky weight loss regimes is no modern phenomenon, women have been doing bizarre things to slim down for years.This collection of pictures from the Twenties and Thirties show women in a interesting and weird poses, strapped to freakish and frankly frightening looking contraptions that they believed would shave off inches.
The super duper wheely thing (if it’s not it’s legitimate name it should be!) , which looks like a hamster wheel is made of two circular parallel bars with bars connecting them.
Women could either have their feet strapped in or be free to move and turn as they liked within the wheel.The idea is to use your body to generate the momentum to rock or even fully rotate the wheel, with the more talented performing gymnastic feats as the wheel rolls around.
While this doubt raised heart rates (probably from being freacked out whilst being in a hamster wheel) and theoretically aid weight loss, there was little additional benefit to cardio exercise, along with increased risk. Exercise carried out in a gym during the decades from the late Victorian times up to the 1930s was a wealthy person’s pursuit. The working classes would have got their exercise cleaning, carrying out chores and walking or cycling to work.
It was the upper classes and those with money and time to spare who looked to dedicated gymnasiums or specialised equipment to help them stay in shape.
Edible Q-Tips and Earwax for a an Appetizer anyone!?
mozzarella and pesto disguised as Q-tips are the creation of Dan from The Food in My Beard blog. this guy is known for concocting innovative food combos (see: Burgerrito).His latest creation takes the classic and delicious mozzarella + pesto pairing and presents it in an ingeniously gross fashion; the mini cheese balls are edible Q-tips and the pesto (in an ear-shaped bowl of course) is basically dippable ear wax. Watch the tutorial for it here
In the mean time you could also make this HEALTHY COCKROACH PUREE (or walnut dip) to go with some mozzeralla q-tips too!
Ingredients: 3 slices of whole wheat bread, well toasted, 1/4 C. walnut pieces, 4 cloves of garlic, coarsely chopped, 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice,1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, 3/4 C. water ,2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped,salt and pepper, to taste
- crumble the toast into fine crumbs with your hands or a food processor.
- In food processor or blender, combine walnuts, garlic, and crumbs until combined and finely ground.
- Add lemon, oil, and parsley. Process until smooth adding water as needed until desired thickness.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
This is one of those gross recipes for Halloween that’s easy to make ahead of time. As it sits in the fridge, it gets a little darker— a good thing for cockroach puree! Serve it up in a bowl labelled “Cockroach Puree,” “Roasted Roach Dip,” serve with cut veggies and watch people be confused whether their grossed out or satisfied with the nomminess! MAUAHAHHA
A Mockingjay cake I did last week!
There’s lots of cool textured pieces in there like feathers, metals, bloody roses, twigs and wood grain- every trick in the book! Katniss herself is fondant with papercrafted wings and chocolate hair. There wasn’t nearly enough references to my liking for the Mockingjay Dress, so I went back to my Fashion Major days and made one for her.
It’s been praised as having “Elegant design choices.” Here that guys? I’m elegant! Look at your baby girl now, Momma!

The Cook’s Den, has some serious skill and may be a lil bit cray cray. Dreaming up a frighteningly delicious idea of serving Steve Job’s for an appetiser at an iPad launch party. This “Steve Jobs Cheese Head”, sculpted from mozzarella cheese and featured atop several delectable dishes.
This cannibalistic treat with authentic pepper beard, is featured as an iPad Thai,Apple Cheese Plate and the guest of honour, Spicy Steve Nachos. Steve Jobs’ melting head in the pot is absolutely disgusting, yet I still can’t look away.
DIY directions for all of these dishes on The Cook’s Den, including carving up the head of Apple’s CEO.

From blue watermelons, large watermelons in anime’s to square watermelons and now even heart shaped ones! Japan is watermelon cray cray

tough and raw.
Yet, once cooked he’s all tender and nourishing.With his crisp and well-pressed nori tux, he’s looking fresh, fresh from the supermarket. He’s a super secret super agent for your body.
You see… carrots are a vitamin-rich vegetable, providing an excellent source for vitamins B, C, D and E. Considering that you are supposed to eat 5-10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, you should definitely eat more than one.
Went to visit my boyfriend today at Delft. We decided to make Pokemon pizza’s! :D Check out our cute Pikachu and Pokeball pizza’s hihi.
