ROUNDUP: Cool Stuff on the Internet Vol.1

So, I used to do weekly Roundup posts featuring fun stuff I'd found around online that particular week, but it's been quite some time since I've fulfilled that commitment (we're talking blue moon status) for a number of reasons. First and foremost, I didn't feel like it. Second of which, I was not in the mood. And so on. I'm planning on resurrecting this feature every now and again as I see fit. Lucky you! Here's some cool stuff I found on the internet this week: 

At Home With Megan Charters via A Beautiful Mess
The "At Home With..." series is one of my favorite features on A Beautiful Mess, and this home is just my style. Lots of kitschy decor and midcentury furniture, plus a creepy cool portrait named Jerry.

30 Minute Homemade Soft Pretzels via Sally's Baking Addiction
I basically consider most of my life to be moments between soft pretzels. That is to say, I'm a fan. I've gone the homemade route before and they were okay, but this recipe seems much more promising, not to mention WAY faster.

DIY Pressed Flower Sunglasses via Cowbiscuits
This DIY is genius and so gorgeous! I'm always toying with the idea of gluing random stuff to sunglasses, but this is much more sophisticated that the things I had in mind.

Glitter Brows FOTD via Kitsch Vixen
Do I really need to say more than GLITTER BROWS?

Embellished Floral Dresses via ASOS (One & Two)
I have no valid excuse to drop the nearly $150 these dresses are each asking, but there is something to be said for super detailed, beautiful embellishments like these. You just keep bringing it, ASOS!

Sharks With Human Teeth via Lost At E Minor
Just what it says in the title, a bunch of sharks with human teeth photoshoped onto their hilarious little mouths. Already, this is actually more entertaining than Shark Week, am I right?

Color Club Miss Bliss Holographic Polish via Streets Ahead Style
Damn, this polish is SHINY. I really want a great holographic nail polish (I told you I was obsessed!), but a lot of them are pah-ricey. This one is actually reasonable! Who knew?

Louise's Creepy Corner via xoJane
Okay, I'm a little obsessed with reading creepy stories online, although I can't figure out why I always seem to do it at night when I'm sure there is a crowd of ghosts reading over my shoulder. This new feature on xoJane offers good creeps, but the comment section is where it's at - everyone has a tale to tell! Grab a nightlight and read up. Check out the first and second installments, too.
