Stamp of Approval

Happy weekend team! I have zero plans this weekend and after being gone the last two, it feels fantastic! I know I’m not fighting Q over here, but it’s still purdy cold. You can find me in my bed under lots of covers spending time with Dexter on ShowtimeAnytime.



Betches Love This: You know what betches also love? Blogging and the 90s: Betchiest Trends of the 90s


Buzzfeed: Pranksters out there, this one’s for you: 23 Effective Ways To Tell Someone You Hate Them. The randomness of #23 alone may be worth scrolling through this.


Buzzfeed: Normally I’m pretty good at hiding what a sap I am on this here bloggy, but The 50 Most Romantic Things That Ever Happened is too sweet not to share.


Mashable: The Oscar’s are tomorrow. I’ve probably never heard of any of the movies nominated. I don’t get out much in Germany, but you bet I’ll still check out the show. Before, then, you don’t miss out on the newest Meme – “Oscaring” – will be the theme on Sunday. Learn about that and more with 10 Fun Facts About Oscar Statues.


Mashable: I just could not help laughing at Seriously, Evolution… WTF? I am so excited about my new white T sporting my blog logo. It’s super soft high quality cotton, too. I totally wore this on Wednesday under a cardigan. Weird?

Young Adventuress: Liz posted this photo of her hot air ballooning in Cappadocia on her Instagram account this week. She’s on an the ultimate Turkey trip right now and there’s no use even trying to hide my jealousy.

Young Adventuress Hot Air Balloons

YouTube: When I saw the title “Burning My Hair Off”, I thought it might be a little funny, but this is also pretty much my worst nightmare. However, when I watched, I found myself laughing uncontrollably. Am I evil? Anyway, see for yourself how you react.

    That picture with all the pens… I want them ALL!!! I love colourful pens!

    • ifs ands & butts

      Oh I know, pens and markers! Can’t get enough!

  • Katrin

    Haha, I love the expression on that girl’s face when she burns her hair off!
    I am kind of glad that not all of the 90’s things were famous in Germany too; Like those Steve Madden shoes. They are horrible!

    • ifs ands & butts

      hahahaha I know, oh Steve Madden has come a long way since then

  • Ichraq

    gosh, that video is horrible! but great! i laughed so hard and yet i was mortified! oh god!

    • ifs ands & butts

      I know, I felt so evil laughing but it was all just so random and shocking!

  • decoybetty

    Oh gel pens, the disappointing part of gel pens is they never seemed to write all that well after a few weeks. Maybe I just bought cheapo ones!

    I hot air ballooned at Cappadocia once…I actually hated it – so you don’t need to be too jealous! It looked amazing. But was boring, and quite horrible over all.

    • ifs ands & butts

      They milky pens so did crap out way too fast! I remember we’d be so confused because we could always see so much ink still in them!

      That does make me feel a little better, but I’ve never been on a hot air balloon and so want to!

  • Mom

    I want a Tshirt !

    • ifs ands & butts

      I only got one, Mom! Maybe I’ll make more someday :) You can borrow mine for now.

  • Ashley of Ashley Abroad

  • Leanna

  • Sara Louise

    At first I thought that 28 was Celcius and I was like holy moly, it’s summer in Germany, but then I saw the F and I was like, oh, ok, that sucks.

    Your t-shirt came out great! Stay tuned to see mine… :)

    • ifs ands & butts

      Haha yep, despite living here for two years, I still haven’t managed to grasp celcius. Unless it’s 0C, I get that.
