I just want to get away from it all

Look closer - that white speck is a house perched on an Icelandic island. Agoraphobia eat your heart out.

Happy birthday to me

21 again. I'm not big on astrology but these zodiac rings by Solange Azagury-Partridge are pretty great. Not so sure on the Scorpio which would be the ring for my birthday but I'd definitely take the Aries or Cancer.

Fake the rainbow

So according to the Irish National Lottery, it's not a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but a couple of tug-boats - which I suppose could even be worth more than a pot o'gold. Not to go too heavy on hamfisted national profiling but I really feel like the ad is missing a cartoon Leprechaun.

Painstaking times and plenty of papercuts

Artist Karen O'Leary has come up with these beautiful hand-cut paper maps of various big cities. Those not on a grid system, like London, appear really haphazard and messy but they're all pretty cool. Not so handy for a tourist to unfold on a windy day, better up on your wall.

London

Manhattan

NYC


 San Fran

 Singapore - I think this one's my favourite

 Sydney

 Vancouver

By Karen O'Leary - available to buy on Etsy too.

UPDATE - Metropolitan Cityscapes have gone one step further with the Urban Topography Collection - maps etched precisely into stainless steel.

I spy with my little eye

Freaky extreme close ups of eyes by Suren Manvelyan. They give you a good sense of what a bottomless pit of goo your pupil is - instead of the little black sticker I always imagine it to be.

"If a tiger had sex with a tornado...

... and then their tiger-nado baby married an earthquake, their offspring would be Rajinikanth." So goes Slate.com's description of the second highest paid actor in Asia (damn your eyes Jackie Chan). Despite being 61 he has just played the love interest in Enthiran India's most expensive movie to date - a sort of I, Robot love story full of android clones, singing atop Machu Picchu set to Malaysian hip hop and "seeking love where Google searches can't reach." Yes.



So, there you have him - Rajinikanth. With Robert Pattinson having grown a grotty beard and Zac Effron being so blindingly handsome you could no more look at him than at the sun, there is space for a new heartthrob in town and I know who gets my vote. Andrew Garfield. Followed by Rajinikanth.

Finally...

...The chance to hang out with our old friend Kaiser Karl in a hot tub of Earl Grey. That's so Chanel.


Oh fashion celebrity tea bags, what took you so long to materialise?

Never smile at...

Aliens landing? Some weird tree house covered with fairy lights? A sexy ass night club? Nope, it's CROCODILES. (And if you shouldn't smile at one, you dare not even smirk at 50.)

I don't shave on weekends either

While we're on the topic of engagements, here is the 'I do, I don't' card, just so your lady friend knows the deal before you embark on something more life-long.

Grow your own bloody engagement ring

That's what I'd tell any potential wife of mine.
Then I'd give her one of these silver Icelandic Moss rings by Hafsteinn Juliusson.
And then I'd take it back off her because I want one.

But if I were to get her (my hypothetical fiancée) a diamond ring I'd get her one of these babies:



That's right. Rings with mirrors incorporated to make the diamonds appear larger / more sparkly and plentiful than they actually are. Pretty hideous too - although I truly love the sentiment behind them. All in all it's lucky I don't intend to marry a woman.
