Hey guys! This is what I made today - and another idea for pockets if you want to give my DIY skirt a go! (Thank you so much to the ladies who have made & blogged about this DIY skirt! I've loved seeing what you're coming up with!) I made the pockets a little larger than the blue gingham skirt, and appliquéd on some ice cream shapes, using slightly different patterned fabrics for each ice-cream scoop. I really like them :)

Onto some science - if you needed any more proof that science is awesome, then please take a look at these nail designs from Cosmetic Proof.
Scientist and fashionista Jayne creates molecular nail designs, and then explains the biological funtion behind the chemical structures she draws!
Amino acids are the "building blocks" of what make up proteins in your body (proteins being what makes all your different tissues, skin, organs etc). There are 20 naturally occurring amino acids in humans, and each amino acid has both a name and an abbreviated letter. These nails represent the stick drawings for each amino acid (the red dot shows oxygen and the blue dot is nitrogen, and the black lines are how chemists draw carbon that is linked in chains).
So the super awesome thing about these is not only did she paint amino acids on her fingernails... she placed each amino acid so that, read left to right, the abbreviated letters spell out a secret message:
These are actually the nerdiest and best thing ever, I am so impressed.
