Subscription boxes always seem like such a good idea until you end up with six months of molding coffee/wine/mascara in the back of a cupboard. An art delivery service that rocks up once a month to prettify your walls, now that's more like it. The fact that art isn't a consumable isn't the most common reason for it being bought, but then, art is more often not bought, so it's valid.

You know you want free colouring in pages. So hip, so arty, so damn procrastinnovative (a word I just innovented). Trendy as hell right now, grown-up colouring books are everyone's new favourite way of not freaking the shit out. According to The New York Times, Buzzfeed and the like, a good hard doodle is the only way to dodge-anxiety for fall 2015. I can attest. My sister bought me a mindfulness colouring book for my birthday (it rocks) which I keep next to my computer; the monitor hasn't been smacked since. So, yeah. I made you some.

There's little in the world as wonderful as a compliment. Empty, backhanded or even genuine, they all work for me. Which is why I've bookmarked Emergency Compliment, an ingenious website that spits out some good old fashioned ego-boosting flattery for those moments when everybody sucks. Better yet, you can even buy the one that works for you as an art print. If Google Glasses develop a function that allows me to scroll through compliments from people when I meet them, I'm in. But only then. In the meantime, check out Emergency Compliment's Society6 shop to get your oh-my-I'm-so-flattered on.
