Tra la la, links for your perusal & enjoyment!

Yo Donna photoshoot by Eugenio Recuenco, photographer of the amazing fairy tale shoot!

If you want to watch something… scary… try A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila. She’s like a less colourful version of the beloved Shrinkle! (Shrinkle is one of the coolest girls on the internet, hands down — I wish she was on this show instead!) Anyway, I think it’s some kind of reality television first, because she’s bisexual so there are women & men competing for her, um, heart. & the men don’t know they are competing with women! Aaaahhaah! Oh, I shouldn’t find this so entertaining, but I do. I love this show! The shame is palpable!

WhoWhatWearDaily are giving away an Elizabeth & James (the latest fashion line from Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen) sequinned dress! (How incredible!) I would love to be the recipient but unfortunately the contest is only open to American residents. However, if you do live in the U S of A & would like to get your lusty little mitts on it, just go to their website & sign up for their newsletter before the 29th of October! If you win, I expect photos, okay?!

More bad television. SuperMADE: Cheerleaders is about whipping cheerleaders into shape. Cheerleaders + MTV = a good time. Come on, you know it’s true. There are surly teenagers & tears/sweat & people calling one another “braindead”! Ooooh! “We’re fierce on 3!” & then, if that’s not enough, watch SuperMADE: Fashion Journalist. God, I love MTV.

A little while ago, someone wrote to me asking for good sex education links. I am THRILLED to announce that the always incredible Violet Blue has recently released a series called Open Source Sex Ed. For a measly US$5 you’ll get 9 chapters of a book, all as podcasts, read in her sultry voice. The chapters include information on the G spot, physiology for pleasure, & a whole lot more. I bought it yesterday & listened to it all afternoon. It is fantastic. Check it out.

Coilhouse is a new online magazine which I like very much! It describes itself as a love letter to alternative culture, written in an era when alternative culture no longer exists. And because it no longer exists, we take from yesterday and tomorrow, from the mainstream and from the underground, to construct our own version. Très bien, oui?! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Really cool illustrations, found via Fashion Nation!

Drool-worthy interiors courtesy of This Is Glamorous. Yum!
