Friday Finds – August 17, 2007

Cara’s Friday Finds

Babies at the disco. Ready to boogie with your baby? Check out Baby Loves Disco. This event takes the hippest nightclub in town and transforms it into a childproofed, disco-blasting dance party for parents and kids. Currently, you can find Baby Loves Disco in 20 cities. Sadly, not Cincinnati. However, moms and dads are encouraged to lobby for it to come to their town. I’m going to look into it. I think a WMAG Baby Loves Disco Party is just what my city needs!

—Yo Gabba… what? From the previews of Nickelodeon’s new show Yo Gabba Gabba!, I thought it looked pretty weird. But after reading this article, now I’m interested in watching. The article says it’s the first live-action show since Pee-wee’s Playhouse that’s entertaining for parents and children. Funny, because I just happened to find Pee-Wee on TV the other day and it scared my two-year old. Yo Gabba Gabba! has a recurring segment called, “Biz’s Beat of the Day,” featuring Biz Markie who teaches kids how to beat box. Go on the website and find cute Yo Gabba Gabba! printable iron-ons.

—How do those celebrities look so good? Retouching! Check out this site for a photo retouching studio. Click “Portfolio” to see some pretty crazy before and afters. I’ve heard of this site before, but everytime I tried to go, it was down. Maybe that’s a good thing. Because when I finally did get through, I spent WAY too much time there. Cara hates it. You can check out the obits and the myspace pages of myspace people who have died. Lots of people die in car accidents.
—Get paid to shop! And it doesn’t have anything to do with becoming a mystery shopper. The new shoe site,, will pay you to get free shipping. They have lots of cool shoes, and their site is pretty neat, too. Check it.
I like purses and bags. We all know that. So I really liked, as site that features replicas of super cool designer bags at super cool price points.

Could your brain use a workout? Personally, my noggin aches at the end of the day (too much “brainstorming”). But if you want to challenge yourself, sign up for a free daily brain fitness tip at (Get it? Neither did I. Maybe I do need a brain workout.) There’s also an interesting little map of the brain that explains how it all works (in layman’s terms).

A fun little shop run by a WMAG. I met a woman named Jazz at BlogHer who has her own store, The Finery, in Amesbury, Massachusetts. I finally got a chance to check it out online and it’s got some cute stuff! Plus, I love the idea of supporting Jazz, a cool lady with her kids hanging out in the shop as she sells her wares. Maybe you’ll like it, too.

Who taught you how to drive? Relive the good ol’ days of being a newbie behind the wheel with this BMW viral video site, Relearn to Drive. It features nine different characters (and boy, are they characters) “teaching” you how to drive. Funny stuff. Thanks to my South African coworker Nico “In the Pickles” Coetzee for the link.

  1. Awww, a shout-out to Pickles. Cool finds you guys! Much happier than!

  2. just4ofus says: is quite depressing! They are all so young.
    It is like a bad car accident, you think it is awful, but you can’t stop looking.

  3. EXACTLY! I’m glad SOMEONE doesn’t think I’m completely insane for looking at it. I need for it to go down again, or something.

  4. Mydeathspace caused my computer to crash due to spyware. They say they are fixing it, but thought I would share.

  5. Great links! I was looking for a new replica tote purse. Thanks.
