Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

* Disney Princesses as Cover Models. The best part is reading all the headlines!

* On a much, much lighter note, we love these confetti party nails. Such a pretty look for your next soiree!

* Haha, CF reader Olivia sent this in and it’s brilliant: You Work in Fashion? Here, Let Me Grab You Your Crazy Pills. That Anna story never fails to make me laugh.

* Joanna from A Cup of Jo kicked off her annual gift guide this week. First up? Innovative gift ideas for wonderful moms. The brownie/chocolate chip cookie hybrid and silk pillowcase are thoughtful and affordable.

* Another great gift guide: Nostalgic Stocking Stuffers for ’90s Girls, from TresSugar. We’re seriously going to seek out Lisa Frank stickers now.

* And ON A RELATED NOTE: Lisa Frank Apparel Can Now Be Yours, from Racked. My inner 8-year-old just shrieked.

* From Cracked, 5 Insane Doctors from History Who Put House to Shame. You med school students will appreciate this one, no doubt.

* Also from Cracked, 7 Movies That Put Insane Work Into Details You Didn’t Notice. Kubrick truly is the master of this – has anyone else ever googled “kubrick symbolism” and spent hours reading? Fascinating (and borderline crazy) stuff.

* And also in the same vein of “crazy/mind-blowing”: 5 Facts About New Earth-Like Planet, Keplar 22-b.

* If you’re thinking about a room makeover, CasaSugar has some cool alternative headboard ideas you can do on a budget.

    If you look at the 10th photo in the “45 most powerful images” link, you can see my college! It’s the red and orange building next to the tall antenna building. I go to Arizona State University at the downtown campus, and I was at school when this happened. Nuts!! Craziest thing I’ve ever experienced.
