Thanks, I Made It Myself: The Ugly Desk Makeover

DIY Desk Makeover

When I was 15 my dad took me to the furniture store so I could get my very own desk. I chose the finest particleboard corner desk my $50 budget would allow, and for the next 13 years, I sat at that desk to to write high school essays, and then college papers, and then blog entries, and then my book. When we moved to Nashville and sold all our furniture, I finally said goodbye to my trusty corner desk, and when we signed the lease on our new house, I decided that my real, grown-up home office deserved a real, grown-up desk.

My vision for my new desk was exactly the opposite of my small, flimsy, wood-like corner desk: I wanted something big, modern, and streamlined. When I found a massive gray and metal industrial-style table on Craigslist for $40 I impulsively bought it, mostly because the people were willing to deliver. But after it had been unloaded and I’d handed them a couple $20s, I had a terrible realization: this desk was really ugly. Keep reading »

For the last six years, World Nutella Day founder Sara Rosso has been celebrating and publicizing the chocolate hazelnut holiday, and has amassed quite a following–including 40,000 likes on Facebook. WND encourages Nutella lovers to buy and eat more Nutella, so it came as quite a shock when Ferrero, Nutella’s manufacturer, sent Rosso a cease-and-desist letter last week and shut down the whole thing. Grinch status, right? Luckily the story doesn’t end there. Keep reading »

Oklahoma Tornado
"This was my second prayer."

I didn’t sleep at all last night after reading about and seeing the horrific aftermath of the deadly tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma. Such gruesome images and unbelievable destruction. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was affected (if you’re looking for specific ways to help, check out this list). In the midst of all this horror, there are always little bright spots, one of which is this interview with Moore resident Barbara Garcia. Even though her home was completely destroyed, Garcia survived the tornado by hunkering down in her bathroom with her beloved dog, who was tragically ripped out of her arms by the high winds. As Garcia is recounting the story to CBS News, the reporter spots a dog buried in the rubble behind her, which turns out to be — you guessed it! — Garcia’s missing dog. After being dug out and reunited with its owner, the dog seems scared but miraculously unharmed. You’ll definitely need a couple tissues to get through this one. [CBS News]

I know doing a Well Played post about Heidi Klum on the beach is painfully predictable, like, “Oh really? Heidi Klum looked great at the beach? YOU DON’T SAY.” But this picture caught my eye because beach outfits and swimsuit cover-ups are always, always brightly colored floral prints, and then here’s Heidi chilling on the beach with her bodyguard boyfriend in this black and white striped Beetlejuice-y dress. It’s an unexpected choice, and it looks awesome. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
