The Best of the World Wide Web - Alt Summit Edition

As I do from time to time, I've curated the internet for you. Please enjoy.

-Melissa Hope is my new BFF, an amazing photographer, and instagram sensation.  Because I'm incredibly narcissistic my favorite work of Melissa's is this snowflake video she made of me.

-Are you one of those people who eats food? Perfect! I have two new food blogs that you must read. Both are new friends and sexually attractive woman. The first is A Life Well Lived  by Amanda Fredrickson. We call her Christy though because she looks like Christy Brinkley and potentially is Christy Brinkley..I'm still not sure.

-Aida Mollencamp (who perhaps y'all know from her time on the Food Network & Cooking Channel) is another hot woman with a whisk. She actually just posted an "elevated" version of the cocktail we consumed each night in our hotel room soirees. I say "elevated" because while at one point I had a cocktail that resembles her blog post, by the end of conference ingredients were scarce and we were doing whiskey shots out of Dixie cups. (Or at least I was. The classier bloggers just switched to beer.)

 
-I'm pretty sure I'm getting a real tattoo in 2014, hold on - fielding angry phone call from mother, but in the meantime Tattly has the coolest (inexpensive) temporary tats ever! They'll make custom ones too. 

-Subscription services are becoming a thing. Birchbox does makeup, Whimseybox  (the best subscription service of all) does DIY kits, and according to Danny there is even a golf subscription service now called Birdie Box. (*Note. Golf is lame.) But guess what The Period Store sends you every month? Stuff for your period. Bahaha! Not only is it a funny and creative business idea but  their branding is awesome.

-Dear Handmade Life, Not Merely Living, Freckled Italian, Fresh Idea Studio are all rad blogs written by new friends. Add 'em to your blogroll.
