June’s Best of the Web

Summer is here and obviously the rain…but when we’re not rushing out to enjoy the rare glimpses of sunshine and we’re stuck inside due to rain, we’ve found some brilliant things to amuse us on the web. So here they are.

Creative Food Art

Imagine if a banana had a hat. Or a coffee cup that flashed at you. I know, weird isn’t it. You’re trying to picture what it looks like. Well stop your cogs grinding in your head and just take a look for yourself!

April’s Best of the Web

Let’s face it. It’s miserable outside. Most of us got caught in the rain. And we’re all  grumbling about the hose pipe ban and drought following this onslaught of rain. But what we all really need is a good chuckle and a look back at the highly entertaining things that have graced the web over the last month!

Cool and Creative MacBook Stickers

Yes it might be fun to splat a sticker on the back of your laptop. But wouldn’t it be even more fun to have a creative sticker…on a MacBook no less. Take a look at these visual delights.
