look, listen, see, click, donate;;;;december

What's happening in December you may ask? Well this is The Little Blog of Happiness's original idea for summing up the month ahead!

Look; at these amazing shoes, they remind me of the kind of shoes the "wild things" would wear... i'll mention this later in my post ;)

Listen; to RIHANNA! Ok ok ok, I always say "I hate pop blah blah blah" but I love rihanna, she has funky beats and a stylish look. If you don't want to buy the album, I suggest just downloading 'Mad House' and 'Rockstar 101'.

See; 'Where The Wild Things Are' is based on the classic children's book by Maurice Sendak which was written in 1963. It is about a little boy called Max who one night while making mischief in a wolf costume is sent to bed by his mum without supper. Soon a magical land grows from his bedroom, where he sails across a wild sea to find an island with scary monsters. The wild things gnash their teeth and stamp their feet, but Max silences them all by staring into their eyes without blinking once. He becomes the king of the wild things and there is much fun to be had dancing on the island. It is a truly magical book, and looks to be a great movie! 'Where The Wild Things' comes out on the 3rd or 4th of December. See the trailer and find out more HERE!

Click; 'We Are The Image Makers' is a webiste full of tons of upcoming artists from graffiti, print, photography, and sketches. Each issue it features 5 different artists work. It's kooky, crazy and a little insane and although I don't like a lot of it, some is bloody brilliant. See what you think,HERE

Donate; If you're in Australia there is fantastic organisation that needs your help especially during Christmas time! It's called The Smith Family, it's site states that "The Smith Family is a national, independent children's charity committed to helping disadvantaged Australian children by unlocking opportunities through education and learning." Click HERE to find out how you can help the Christmas appeal.
If you don't live in Australia Oxfam is also a great charity for Christmas. You can purchase more meaningful presents at this time for year, like a goat for a village in Africa or mosquito nets for a family in Cambodia. Or even one year of schooling for a child in Zimbabwe.

ps. can you please read my previous post about people who inspire you. i'd love some more people to take up the challenge. :) thank-you!
