1. Jem and the Holograms: I grew up idolising the cartoon show JatH, and in recent years I've had the pleasure introducing it to my entranced kids. Now the moment is almost upon us, it is a feature film, soon to be playing at Australian cinemas. I am so looking forward to this. I just may dye my hair for this.
2. My Poppet is a blog I have been following for quite a while. There are a variety of cute, homemade projects that make you feel like every day in the My Poppet household is a lovely spring day. A project that caught my eye is a DIY tee pee. It comes in two parts, so check them out - Part 1 + Part 2.

3. Via the sharing power of Pinterest I became an instant fan of illustrator - Margaux Motin. Her work has a quirky sense of humour and her characters are very cute. But you don't need me to tell you, when you can see it for yourself, at Margaux's blog.

4. I am halfway through reading Amy Poehler's Yes Please. It is an excellent read, for many reasons. I couldn't possibly put my finger on just one, but I will say it is written in an open and honest way. You can tell a self aware person, and Amy is one of those. Oh, and it really funny. So read this book, damn it!
P.S. I got a kick out of pointing to the book cover and telling my daughters 'look, it's Joy from Inside Out'.
