New Year, New You?

Congratulations - you have successfully made it to 2015, the year that Back to the Future promised will spawn life changing inventions such as self-tying laces, hover-boards and Jaws 19. Basically, it's going to be a good'un.

It's that time of year when we all look back at the year just passed and see only a graveyard of broken promises and a pool of shattered dreams. Or, you know, we think about how delicious that jumbo sized Toblerone was but how we got out of breath getting up off the sofa. 

Whether you're resolved to get fitter this year, ring your mum more often or successfully become 59% robot, we say very good luck to you - we reckon you'll nail it. However, if you're still undecided as to what you'd like to do better this year, we've created a handy little guide to help you set some realistic (and unrealistic) goals for 2015.

 

If you need us over the next couple of weeks, we'll be running backwards up a mountain somewhere. Or on the sofa watching Celebrity Big Brother. One or the other.

Bananimals

The humble banana. That yellow semi-circle of squishy goodness. Good for eating, good for putting into smoothies and good for...fashioning into a variety of different animals (we spend a lot of time around bananas here in fruit towers so, naturally, one thing leads to another). 

Today, we thought we’d share with you our favourite banana based animal creations so that next time you've got a banana handy (and a bit of extra time) you can transform it into one of the following:

5. Loch Ness Banana Monster

Stick a few bananas in a puddle and you can just about call it Nessie.

(we found this banana monster here http://imgur.com/4gPOe).

4. Swan banana.

May also require a biro and some artistic talent.

  (we found Jurgen Steenwelle's graceful banana here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/22/dad-banana-art-_n_4646988.html)

3. Banana dog.

Not for beginners. Tricky. Not even a real banana.

2. The banana dolphin. 

This image was sent in to us by Fiona Macintyre on Facebook. The banana dolphins are happily frolicking in a sea of grapes (their natural habitat).

 

1. The banana penguin.

This idea was sent in to us by @LivvyEpps on twitter, and is probably the simplest design of the lot . Just peel down the sides of the banana to make the wings and, hey presto, you’ve got a waddly banana penguin on your hands.

 

If you manage to recreate any of the above, or have already earned your banana animal expert credentials and created your own, be sure to let us marvel at them on twitter - you can find us @innocentdrinks. Pretty appeeling, we think you'll agree (sorry).

hipster statues

These photos of hipster statues have been doing the rounds of certain underground internet circles for a while now, but we think it's time they went mainstream.

Photographer Léo Caillard began by first photographing a series of sculptures at the Louvre museum in Paris and then asked his friends to pose in similar positions wearing modern day clothing. Art director Alexis Persani then took over by photoshopping the hipster clothing onto the statues and their Street Stone series was born.

We nabbed the photos from here

toilet paper art

We stumbled across these the other day and thought they were pretty special. Paris-based artist Anastassia Elias started creating art out of toilet rolls a few years ago and it has rapidly become her signature style. You can see a few of her creations below:
