Beards and moustaches that are not beards and moustaches

Some people think that just because you are a little girl, or a woman, you can’t have a beard or a moustache.

What rot!

People can do anything they want to. Not everything is how it appears to be on the surface. Don’t let the negative people put you down.

Be inspired! Achieve!

You can make a tash from mash

Or brush your face

Little brother’s finger can be useful sometimes:

Some moustaches are magic:

Mmmm…spaghetti….

Double mmm….whipped cream

We hope you are inspired by this post to be whatever you want to be!

PS Also, whipped cream does not stick on to your face as well as you might think it should.

Inspirational face furniture a speciality

Utterly Awesome Blog: A Thrifty Mrs

Awesomely thrifty Mrs

Here is this week’s Utterly Awesome Blog, and it’s a new favourite of El’s. And it’s written by another El!

It’s superscrimpingly awesome.

It’s A Thrifty Mrs

It’s thrifty, but generous with the awesome sauce.

We like this post about how to make your own lemon lip scrub and we are planning to have a go at making some this weekend.

The posts are all really well written and you will like them even if you’re not going to try the tips. The photos are great too.

El thoroughly enjoys reading the money saving tips and she has no need to be thrify as she is only 12 and thrifty-ness is Jae’s job. (Jae is not so sure about this).

El, meet El

We met El, the real life Thrifty Mrs at Cybher and she was really nice even though she could’ve been cross not to be the only blogging El. She has been on Superscrimpers AND Harry Hill’s TV Burp. (We almost went to a different talk. Phew!)

She seems like a really nice person so go check out her blog!

I’m serious. Read it. NOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! GIVE HER YOUR LOVE!!!!! SHE’S AWESOME!

We have got a special badge for you A Thrifty Mrs! We will email you the code (people have been having trouble with the code)

Not available in shops

Dolls can be great, but we have been wondering – why are there not more nerdy dolls?

What has gone wrong in the world that you can buy a Justin Bieber doll but no geeky girl dolls?

Something like this:

Can I get a few books with that?

El doll comes with a satchel, more books than you can fit into the satchel, glasses, and plans to rule the universe one day.

Jae doll is more of a vintage model. She comes with techy accessories, both traditional and modern. No liquorice allsorts as she has already eaten them. This doll has an extra arm which is very useful when you are a mummy doll.

Batteries not included

What do you think? We reckon it could really take off.

 

El & Jae

PS Thank you to Amazing Daisy for doll designs.

Utterly Awesome Blog: Phileas Dogg

Utterly Awesome Dog Blog!

Here is this week’s Utterly Awesome Blog – and it isn’t even written by a human!

Before there was Pudsey on Britain’s Got Talent, an even more talented dog has been at work. Phileas Dogg is a travel blog written by Attlee the dog.

We like this blog because:

It’s a dog! Giving his opinion! Not like boring human travel which is all blah blah service station blah blah country cottage etc. As well as Attlee there’s a French correspondent who tells you about his life. We are not entirely sure how his paws manage to type on the keyboard, but if Pudsey can walk backwards like a man then dogs can do anything.

It’s really really funny. Even if you don’t like dogs and you’re not going anywhere, you will like it.

We have met Attlee! He came to our house on New Year’s Day and was very cute. Still waiting for his report from Brighton though. Attlee is a very sweet dog.

He uses great words like Amaze-bones and is always looking for SAUSAGES.

Attlee agreed to answer some questions so we could find out the secret of his awesomeness:

Why are you so awesome?

I am so awesome because I am a dog who can write and there aren’t many hounds who can do that: not even Pudsey, I’ve heard.

Why is your blog so awesome?

My blog is so awesome because I go to pubs, hotels, restaurants and cafes all over Britain so I can tell other dogs what they’re like. Humans are interested in stuff like is the chef on television and do they have a good wine list. But dogs are interested in stuff like do they serve SAUSAGES, will the staff recognise me as the superior life form I am and are there any old-fashioned lampposts for me to add my pee to centuries of other dog pee on?

Where is your favourite place?

Even though I have travelled the country, my favourite place is my local park, two minutes walk from my house. I am top dog in the pack there, even though some of the other dogs are three times the size of me. They respect me because I have a job and an important one at that.

Where would you like to go that you haven’t been to yet? 

The Ritz because when I have been to The Ritz I will know I have truly arrived.

Why did you start a blog?

I started a travel blog because when we are travelling Dodger the cat I have to share my home with is left behind. Dodger is too clever by half so having a break from him  giving me the evils all the time is very relaxing.

If you could sell Jane for a SAUSAGE, would you?

For a whole string of sausages, I’d consider it. Make me an offer

(Jane is Attlee’s owner. If I was her, I’d be worried)

Congratulations Attlee, you are now in the select club of Eljae’s Utterly Awesome Blogs. And we will give you five sausages and a blow up lamp post for Jane, she is pretty awesome too.

Here is the code you need to create your special badge:

Sorry it’s not a sausage

Cybher – our day in sketches

El and Jae at Cybher!

We are all pooped out today because we spent yesterday at Cybher, the blogging conference for women (and girls) who blog.

El was mega chuffed to meet another El – it was superstar blogger El from A Thrifty Mrs, as seen on Superscrimpers and Harry Hill’s TV Burp. WE LOVE YOU EL.

El, meet El

We also met the guys from the Leather Satchel Company, which was great because El takes one of their satchels to school every day – we love them too.

And we met the Disney people and told them the world needs More Muppets, so hopefully they will take heed.

At lunchtime we had a crisp shaped like a heart! And other stuff too of course.

The crisp of love

We liked the pink lights, sweeties on the table and the cool bags.

El recorded the day in sketches, and here are some of them:

What’s it called again?

We loved Biba‘s talk about apps, and even more we loved the bunny hair clip in her hair. At least we think it was a hair clip, and not a tiny baby bunny perched very still.

That’s one appy bunny

Everywhere you looked, people were tweeting and iPading at the tables:

Sketching is like tweeting from the past

El had no iPhone so she had to make her own:

No batteries required

We went to some workshops and picked up some great blogging tips:

They don’t teach us this stuff in school!

Everybody we met was really nice, it was like a big friendly community:

Oh yes we are

We found out lots of things about technology:

Make friends with your tech

We learned how to re-design your blog:

Bloggybloggyblogblog.com that is

A big hello to all the lovely bloggers we met at Cybher, thanks to Sian for putting it all together.

Oh yeah!

El & Jae 🙂
Cybher-riffic!

Utterly Awesome Blog: Daisy’s Amazing Random Stuff Extravanganza

What an utterly amazing blog!

We have a brand new feature! It’s our Blog of the Week award, and it can only be won by Utterly Awesome Blogs. And the first award for Best Blog goes to Daisy’s Amazing Random Stuff Extravaganza.

We like this blog because:
It’s very very funny
Some of her posts are very insightful.
Daisy is wonderful unique person.
There are some great youtube videos.
She also makes her own youtube videos which are amazing, well shot and well edited.
Plus she is only 12 and has been writing the blog since she was 10.
She is very creative.
And she is also a close friend of El’s and they are in the same class at school.

The star of the show Daisy kindly agreed to answer a few questions and let us into the secret of her blogging success:

Why are you so awesome?

I don’t think I am, I’m just a random person talking about me, I literally have no idea why anyone wants to read it.

(Note from El: Because you blog about interesting things and because you’re funny! Duh!)

Why is your blog so awesome?

I don’t think it’s that awesome, I just put effort into making it look good and making sure it’s not boring. It’s not that awesome is it?

(Note from El: Of course it’s awesome Daisy that’s why we’re saying it’s an utterly awesome blog.)

I hear you play the drums. Tell us a bit about your taste in music.

yeah, a bit, I’m not amazing or anything, but I have lessons and I do something called rock school every week (we’re doing paddle round the Pier this time (I think it’s free) so any of your readers can feel free to come and watch.

Anyway, music, I like things like Blondie or Adam and the Ants, but I started off with bands like the Monkees or the Beatles. Rolf Harris was, and always will be my USP (unique selling point) I also like people like Kimya Dawson, Carpenters, the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and Michael Nesmith (he was the bobble hat wearing one from the Monkees)

Can you give us some fashion tips?

no, probably not.

I’d just say try not to wear too much make up and wear what you feel comfortable in, (making sure you don’t wear something comfy but makes you think that everyone is staring at you) It doesn’t have to be in fashion right this moment but should have looked okay at some point, I often wear a waistcoat over a t-shirt. oh, and don’t take fashion tips from the 80’s

(Note from El: Daisy actully has a great style wearing waistcoats and fake glasses and decorating a lot of her clothes. Have you even seen her dungarees?!)

Why did you get a blog?

well, mainly because whenever I went on the internet I didn’t have anything interesting to do (I’ve never been good at playing games like those on mini clip or anything like that.)

Who is better Lee Mack or Rolf Harris?

YOU CAN’T ASK ME THAT QUESTION!
why couldn’t you ask something like who’s better Hitler or Rolf Harris? Then of course I would have said Hitler! (that was a joke by the way)

(Note from El: Daisy has always loved Rolf Harris and has even created a religion based on him and is a fan of Not Going Out starring Lee Mack. I asked that question mostly to annoy her.)

And Daisy, we have made a special blog badge for Utterly Awesome Blogs which you can pick up by cutting & pasting this code on to your blog:

<a href=”http://www.eljae.com/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://i1266.photobucket.com/albums/jj522/joannemallon1/el-and-jae-awesome-blog-badge.jpg” alt=”Eljae” border=”0″ /></a>

Which will give you something looking like this:

Competition time: Win a dancing doll and an offensive/useful book

It is competition time over at Jae’s other blog. Yay!!!

You could win a cute Dancing Danni doll. You can plug your MP3 player into it and it will dance to the music. If you like the sound of that, pop over to enter. Closing date: 15th May – all you have to do to enter is leave a comment. And maybe do a little dance.

If El was a doll she would come with accessories: Glasses, 10 books and a satchel. Oh and a few more books.

I think we could be on to something with El dolls. I’m going to have to turn that into a brand.

Also, Jae has a second competition ending on 21st May where you could win a copy of the book French Kids Eat Everything. El is very much offended by this book’s title! What’s wrong with us English I might ask! But if you would like your own copy, enter the competition by leaving a comment here. And finishing your carrots.

Hope to see you entering!

Jae the Joyful.

How to get through the last boring hour of school

Is it home time yet?

The last hour of school is soooooooo loooooooong. It’s like time stretches out and it lasts longer than all the previous hours put together. Here is how to get through it without exploding:

  • El’s granny used to be a teacher and she once got through the last hour by getting all the kids to think of songs about bells until the bell rang.
  • If not imagine that you could levitate the teacher and send them whizzing around the classroom.
  • Stare at somone for ages. You can do this whether you’re a teacher or a kid.
  • Try not think about penguins
  • Draw a pie chart on your hand and colour in the pieces until the end. Make sure they are equal though.
  • Count backwards from 60 to zero, one number every minute
  • Get Doctor Who to take you in his Tardis directly to home time. Also he could take you all through time and space on the way and you would still be home in time for tea.
  • Write a song in hour head. Here’s the first line to start you off: I’ve got the last hour of school bluuuuuues. Even though I’m wearing regulation shooooeeeees etc
  • Concentrate on growing your hair. Look how much lovely and longer it is when a whole hour has passed. Also if you have nits you can pass the time by getting them to crawl across your fingers.
  • Actually listen to what the teacher is saying. It might be interesting.*

 

And if none of that works and you are still all sadface about the last hour of school – Ask yourself – is being a teacher the right profession for you?

 

*don’t blame us if it’s not

 

Jae & El 🙂
Is it 3pm yet?
