Okay, this is my personal favorite link because I am officially addicted to Pinterest (P.S.

Okay, it may not even be SPRING yet, but we're already lusting over so many Fall 2012 collections. One of our faves? Burberry FW 2012 - practical, elegant, and oh-so cool.

*

On a similar note, with New York Fashion Week behind us, Glamour breaks down the dos and don'ts of Fall 2012 trends.

Got a few minutes to waste? Koalas to the Max is just cool. (Keep moving your mouse, you'll get it!)

*

Another link for the random/cool pile: The Colour Clock is a website that "represents time as a hexidecimal color value" - design geeks, this is for you.

*

Okay, one more: Geeky Tattoos is a blog dedicated to, well, just that - photos of nerd-tastic ink from around the world. Pretty awesome!

*

50 Bold, Beautiful, and Brilliant Package Designs, from Life Scoop. Gorgeous packaging sells me every time.

Eek, this is gross: Eyelash Extensions? Watch Out for Formaldehyde. (To be honest, I don't know anyone who has had these done, but I've always been curious... and am less so now.)

*

If you need some relaxing music, this playlist of acoustic hip hop covers would be perfect background noise for exam studying or paper-writing.
