The World’s Top 10 Best Lakitu Inspired Items

The World’s Top 10 Best Lakitu Inspired Items
SUPER MARIO FIGURE SET OF 6 KOOPA TROOPA LUIGI LAKITU
Here is a comment that will start a nerd fight…”I think super Mario would have been a no-one without Lakitu! Yep, that cute, fluffy cloud that follows him around should get a lot of the credit for making Mario look so good! After all Super Mario 64 only looked as good as the camera angle. So maybe we so take 5 mins to show some respect for Videogames only well-known camera man as we take a look at….

Lakitu Figure
10 – The Real Lakitu (£3.99)–(source)
For the tiny sum of just £4 you too can own and little figure of the famous camera guy himself with this quite detailed small model toy. Add to this the fact that the source link has almost all of the Super Mario world characters in the same vein then this suddenly gets rather interesting!

Lakitu Macbook or Laptop Decal
9 – Apple Bobbing (£3.80)–(source)
Are you the happy owner of an Macbook? Well why not stand out from the crowd and show a bit of respect to little Lakitu all at the same time, with this rather cool Lakitu Macbook or Laptop sticker!

Lakitu Ornament
8 – Sweat and Simple (£9.75)–(source)
Yeah I know it is a little late for Christmas decorations but this just had to be included because not only is it cheap but it also made me smile, and that is always what all of my post are about so here it stays.

lakitu’s cloud – super mario 3 earrings
7 – I hear the word “RETRO!” (£16.96)–(source)
These might only be made with plastic with a sealed, clear glossy lacquer but for me they are just amazing. They look just about perfect and if only they were a little bit cheaper would have been much higher up this list.

6 – Fancy Dress! (source)
While not necessary an “item” I thought it was still cool enough to be included because you just don’t see that many Lakitu inspired costumes at all.
The World’s Top 10 Best Lakitu Inspired Items
Laser cut and engraved Mario Bros 8 bit Lakitu wood keyring
5 – From the skies to the car keys (£8.15)–(source)
What I liked about this item is that it is in fact made from wood! And while it is laser cut it is still quite skill-full and well worth being on this list.

Super Mario Bros LAKITU vinyl wall sticker decal game room kids
4 – It’s on the house!  (£3.09)–(source)
What you are looking at is the Lakitu up the top of the image and all the others like Toad, Yoshi, coins and even the level bricks, because they are all wall stickers! So if you want an amazing looking room you will need to add a Lakitu one for that finished look like the one above! Perfect for kids rooms?!? Nah, I will be having this in my own bedroom!
The World’s Top 10 Best Lakitu Inspired Items
lakitu’s cloud – super mario world stud earrings
3 – You Stud! (£9.84)–(source)
Now I know they are almost exactly the same as number 7 but as a set of stud they just look better and more suited to what the Lakitu cloud looks like, and I like them more so there!
The World’s Top 10 Best Lakitu Inspired Items
SUPER MARIO FIGURE SET OF 6 KOOPA TROOPA LUIGI LAKITU
2 – Forever Friends (£18.31)–(source)
Why settle for 1 figure when you can have 6! This great little collection is all you need to play an entire level of the game, all you will need with this is a few chocolate golden coins and an over active imagination.
The World’s Top 10 Best Lakitu Inspired Items
SUPER MARIO 34CM LAKITU SPINY PLUSH STUFFED TOY LARGE
1 – Not so mean at all!  (£34.80)–(source)
This great plush cuddly toy of Lakitu is the top of my list because it is fluffly like a cloud and just looks so happy and feel good, and that is what the Super Mario games and it’s characters are all about, no matter how mean they are they all look good in soft toy form.

The World’s Top 10 Best Images of Cats on Dogs!

The World’s Top 10 Best Images of Cats on Dogs!
Elephants chase Rhinos, Rhinos chase Horses, Horses chase Dogs, Dogs chase Cats, Cats chase Mice, Mice chase Elephants! And that is how the world works the end.  What?!? You want a little bit more from a Caturday blog post? Well maybe this post should be about how cats think they are top of the food chain. I once saw a cat riding a dog! It wasn’t a trick or glued to it in anyway, it was just standing on top of the poor dog while it walked around! I thought it was the strangest thing I had ever seen in my life. But it seems cats use dogs all the time for all sorts of reasons, so please do join me as we take a look at cats that are generally mistreating their canine friends….

The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes

The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes
Oreo Cheesecake Bites
Here is a well known fact: Oreo’s make the best cheesecakes! But as with most things that need to be handmade these cheesecakes are open to artistic interpretation, so some people will make smaller, individual cheesecakes that you can eat in one mouthful (I could anyway) or maybe a full on large scale cheesecake that needs to be cut into slices. And then again there are some (just 10) that are good enough to be included in one of the most screen drooling blogs I will every write. Ladies and Gentleman, boy and girls, cats and dogs, I bring you…

10 – That will be £89 please! (source)
Like it or not, a well presented dessert makes it even tastier than you would normally think it was, because of the fact that you eat with your eyes rather than your mouth. And you just know this amazing Oreo Cheesecake is going to taste just as good as it looks.
The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes
Easy Oreo Cheesecake
9 – I have a crush on this! (source)
I just love the biscuit top and base to this one making it look like a giant Oreo. But for me it was the crumbly top that just makes it that extra bit special. Oh yeah! I need one of these now!
The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes
Oreo Cheesecake Bites
8 – Bite size = Get to eat more! (source)
What I like about these small bite size cheesecakes is that they have not made it over complicated, just put some cheesecake mix onto an ordinary sized Oreo and then top it off with a smaller bite sized Mini-Oreo! Nothing hard, and I could eat millions of them.

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes
7 – “I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it!” (source)
I love things that go against the grain. And this incredible upside down Oreo Cheesecake does exactly that, with it’s biscuit base on top and the tasty cheese cream under it. (GULP!)

6 – Nom! ….(GULP)…ARRGGGHH,nom,nom,nom,nom,nom,nom (source)
That would be me if these where at a party I was at. These are just one of the best I have seen, with them being very well presented and probably tastier than life it’s self. Also it comes from a WordPress blogger with a blog rammed full of amazing things to make and eat, so please do check it out when you get time.  (See Source Link )

Frozen Chocolate-Raspberry Cheesecake
5 – A Touch of Colour in a Black and White world. (source)
What I like about this one is not only the lovely Raspberry colours, but that it just goes to show what you really can do with a Oreo cheesecake if you think about it a little!
The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes
White Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe
4 – “A slice? What is this ‘slice’ thing you talk about?!?” –(source)
While this does look like it will require quite a high cooking skill level, if you look at it the main part of it is just a plain Cheesecake with a small biscuit base and sides!  But the lattice style top will require a little more skill you could always leave that off ans still have an epic cheesecake!
The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes
No Bake Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake
3 – Spoon feed me, until I pop! (source)
Now this is what I am talking about! Easy to make, stunning to look at and you just know it tastes incredible. They are all good in this top 10, but this one just shines so brightly indeed.
The World’s Top 10 Best Oreo Cheesecakes
Mint Chocolate Cheesecake
2 – Minty Fresh! (source)
Oh, you just know that the cool mint taste of this one will feel just amazing as it slides down your tongue into your throat, and that Oreo Cheese cake base! I can tell by the bucket of drool I have just looking at the picture this would be a good one to make for sure.

Oh yes! Why are you reading this when you should be licking the screen and clicking like crazy on that [LIKE] button! Yeah, while these are smaller individualised ones they are nothing short of beautiful and I just know that I would eat a whole plate of these and then be licking the plate. I can’t stop and type any more because I am off to make some of these right now!

The World’s Top 10 Best Images of Animals That Live in Drains

The World’s Top 10 Best Images of Animals That Live in Drains
The World’s Top 10 Best Images of Animals That Live in Drains
I only need to say the word “Goldfish” for most of you know where this is going. Yep! As a child I had a Goldfish I called Jaws (yes I know it wasn’t very unique)  And that dreaded day came when Jaws died and he was flushed down the loo never to be seen again. But growing up in children’s home means that the other kids sometimes said nasty things! I was told he would come back to life and bite my bum when I was sat on the toilet! So please hold my hand as I try to take a look at all those horrible, mutated and scary animals that live in drains and maybe try to find out just what happened to my poor old Goldfish….

10 – Raccoon (source)
Apparently in Michigan, USA it is quite common for Raccoons to live in drains and drainage pipes, Sadly this poor guy got his head stuck, but as you can read all about in the link he was fine once he was freed. But he is also the first sign that drain dwelling creatures might not be all that they are made out to be!

Seen right here in the UK these simply amazing images that were captured by someone on their way to work! Poor little drain bunny.

8 – Stoat (source)
It doesn’t get much stranger than this awesome image of a stoat (a sort of weasel) that lives in a drain! For some reason I get the feeling that this blog page is turning into “Wind in the willows” rather than scary drain creatures!

7 – Barn Owls (source)
I swear that this is a real image and has not been Photoshopped in anyway, what you really are looking at is a whole family of Barn Owls that do in fact live in a drain! Maybe they ate my Goldfish!

6 – Cat (source)
It is not looking good for my fish! What you see above is in Spain and apparently they have several hundred thousand homeless cats wondering around in their sewer! But with the kindness of strangers and strange cat people 99.9% of them get to eat at least once a day.

5 – Raccoon (source)
I know I had a Racoon already in this list but this amazing image of an entire family of them sticking their little heads out of the gutter just had to be included. Bless em! I wonder if they know what happened to my goldfish!

4 – Yellow Bellied Marmot (source)
Before anyone starts shouting “RAT” read the story in the link because this in reality is Marmot and is in fact lost but had been living in the drains for quite a while before anyone realised it wasn’t in fact a rat.

3 – Cow (source)
This is in fact one of two cows which fled an abattoir in northern France. It was found ‘hiding’ in a drain, was rescued and you will be happy to hear given a chance to live out the rest of its life in a field. Sure it was hiding in a drain but it does have a happy ending!

2 – Dog (source)
While it might seem like he is stuck, he is in fact stood inside a much larger drainage system. Seen in Paris France apparently several wild dogs will roar the streets and sewer pipes and networks looking for food.

1 – Chipmunk (source)
There are apparently hundreds of thousands of chipmunks that live in drain and sewers of their native countries and they have even been known to become friends with the much larger rat population! So while I didn’t find my Goldfish at least he is not alone and might even make a friend or two.

The World’s Top 10 Best Pallet Tables

The World’s Top 10 Best Pallet Tables
The World’s Top 10 Best Pallet Tables
This blog post all started last summer when my neighbour came round to my house to ask if he could have an old wooden pallet I had in the back garden (used to deliver some concrete the year before) of course I said “yes, please do take it!” For me it was just a piece of rotting wood in the back-garden, but to him it seems it was a coffee table that he made using the pallet! And while I don’t have any pictures of my neighbours I have decided to bring you…

Simple, handy and great looking. For me, that is how I sum up this vibrant green pallet coffee table that just looks like it would fit well in the living room of any modern home.

9 – Breakfast at Tiffany’s (source)
This charcoal black breakfast table made from 6 bulk standard pallets just goes to show how easy it is to make these! After all the are mostly just attached to each other with very little effort or work needed.

8 – ” Make sure you put a coaster down so you don’t stain the glass!” (source)
The amazing polished effect on the wood, the simplicity of the pallet not being altered or cut in anyway, or the stunning stained glass in the gaps together all those things make this pallet table nothing sort on an EPIC WIN!

7 – God Save The Queen! (source)
Featuring the flag of your own country on top of one of these is a great way to make it unique, while this one is the GB flag it doesn’t matter where you are from, painting a flag onto a pallet table like this looks amazing, but some flags are easier to paint than others.

6 – All but myself! (source)
While these shipping pallets look stunning and have certainly been sanded down and polished to within an inch of their lives, the metal sides and shipping logos are all what was on it before it was touched! Not only stunning looking, but you can buy them via the (source) link!

5 – DIY 101. (source)
Simple, amazing and not just a table, but a picnic one! This very simple and easy to copy design makes this one of the best ones I have ever seen. If it had been given a lick of paint and this might have been a lot higher placed, but still very good indeed.

4 – Testing, testing (source)
Whether it is the test card style paint job on top of it, or the easy to follow design, or maybe the fact that it showcases the pallet gaps used as a handy storage area I just don’t know. The only thing I do know is that it looks amazing and I love it!

3 – The high end of design (source)
While it might be hard to imaging this incredible wine/bottle rack/coffee table being a old wooden pallet originally (apart from the basic layout of it) it really was and goes to show what a lot of effort and a lot of time and skill can do for you when it comes to making pallet tables.

2 – Fit for a Queen indeed! (source)
While it might be basic the oblong shape makes it perfect for a playing card paint job to be placed on it and that is exactly what this one has had done to it. Simple, stunning and well worth a go at trying to make your own!

1 – Going Natural (source)
Not only is the top of this table made with recycled pallets, but the designer/maker has also used the gaps in the side of the pallet to make a small middle row just wide enough to insert some succulents! For me this one was just nothing short of beautiful.
