Friday Fizz: bubbles of awesome from the web

It feels like forever since we’ve had a fizz! Welcome back, old friend. Here’s what’s been floating my boat from that crazy place called the interweb this week.

Sew your own cushions – this is sooooo no generally my thing, but you have to check out how cute these cushions are! Sonia from Life Love and Hiccups is like an interior design Rainman – and she promises these are the easiest cushions in the world to make. Feel free to make me some. That would be cool.

Your favourite legends like you’ve never seen them before – Bill Gates’ mug shot, Mohammed Ali talking a suicidal man down from a ledge, Audrey Hepburn picking up some groceries with her pet deer, and Osama Bin Laden on a family holiday to Sweden. Why haven’t we seen these before?

Your summer reading list – all the latest and greatest reads from the big names on the TED blog. From America, where it is actually summer. If you’re stuck for what to read next, your answer can surely be found here.

Stop waiting for tomorrow: 3 steps for loving your life now – beautiful and wise words from gorgeous blog Tiny Buddha. Word.

A fantastic photo series to make us think about judgement – I’m talking Mummy Wars, yo. Cut that shit out. These photos are the shiz. Sorry, I don’t know why that one made me turn embarrassingly faux gangsta.

And finally, the best tampon ad I have ever seen. Hope you like it too. (And why hasn’t anyone ever thought of a monthly delivery service before? Genius!)
