Welcome to Monday Mashup where we talk about everything and anything we’ve come across around the internets. It could be an interesting article, a book trailer, a fun piece of news we feel you should know about, or maybe a stylish pair of shoes (if Laura has her way!) or something zombie-ish (if Carolyn has her way!). Basically, it’s a bit of a mashup! Enjoy…
Hi everyone, it’s Carolyn here with this month’s Monday Mashup. I found a few interesting things around the internet over the last couple of weeks – some had me giggling, but one in particular had me crossing my legs in mock pain… read on to find out why…
“Ball Ironing” – The Latest Hollywood Trend
Yep, you read it right. Hollywood A listers are having their balls ironed out, technical term: “Tighten the Tackle” procedure. They hate the wrinkles you see and so have their genitals lasered to remove hair and smooth out those wrinkles. Even George Clooney has had it done… You can read more about it here - Source: Mail Online.
Blood Vessels & Wine
My hubby and I enjoy the odd glass of wine, and I must say it does taste better when decanted. So, how about this… a wine carafe sculptured like blood vessels. Not sure I would own this one, but there are a few on the website that I rather like. Source: Etienne Meneau Sculptures.
Terrible’s Novella Has A Cover
As you all know by now, I’m sure, I am a massive fan of the Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane. I love Chess and Terrible, and their very angsty, up and down relationship. So, I’m soooo excited that Kane will be releasing a novella from Terrible’s POV, and I can’t wait. You can read a snippet here. Plus here’s the new cover. I like it for the most part, though I’m not sure about the pink woman in the centre (is this meant to be Chess??) but I’m loving the tats, just wish there was more Terrible. What do you think?

Zombie Hands Bookmark
If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know that I am obsessed with zombies and an avid collector of bookmarks. Therefore I’m sure you will see why I’m all sorts of excited about this one. I can’t remember how I came across the link now but whoever posted it I’m glad they did as I definitely want. Made by Anna Sternik’s Art Shop.
I cannot function properly without my morning wake-up coffee, and this mug is just too cute. I don’t know how it works but I want one as it’s the spitting image of me as the caffeine hits my bloodstream. Source: Incredible Things.
Glomming Kristen Ashley
Yes, I know. I’m totally late to the party. But I took the leap and read my first KA book, Motorcycle Man. Oh my. Sooooo freakin’ addictive I was awake until the early hours of the morning unable to put it down. Kane “Tack” Allen: sexy-hot, tattooed, all Alpha male. I’m now glomming the rest of the Dream Man series (these are the new covers), and after that I’m onto another, but KA has a killer of a back list, so I may be here a while…
