Oh it is hot here, my friends. And summer camps never seem to last long enough for me to finish a thought AND get food for dinner, so here are some things I’m finding pretty indispensable right now.

Five great bike helmet hair ideas from Refinery29.

I may have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to popsicle recipes.

Have an overload of summer vegetables? Oh My Veggies has a recipe (or six) for you.

I had the good fortune of hanging out with the Johnny behind Johnny’s Pops, the bike-powered artisan popsicle cart. What is a more perfect summertime treat? He is a clever man, coming up with this one. He’s also the only one behind this operation: standing in the hot sun selling popsicles, making them all himself, pedalling his cart all over town. I wrote about it over on Vancouver Mom if you’d like to find out more.

For some reason, I never catch him in time to try this apricot caramel popsicle of his… I’m hearing such good things.

I don’t know why, but we’re all about spaceships around here these days. I’m obsessing about trying out this tutorial for making your own outer space shirt/skirt/leggings.

1 // Cuisipro rocket ship pop moulds : these have an astronaut hiding inside, too cool.

2 // Crochet rocket ship pattern : I wish I could manage crocheting…

3 // A properly beautiful galaxy shirt : I’m pretty sure I couldn’t manage this one on my own.

4 // ‘Never date an astronaut’ shirt : oh Threadless, you are too funny.
