Monday Morning Eye Candy initially started when a group of friends discovered they all suffered a terrible case of Monday-itis each and every week when they went back to work. In an effort to alleviate the symptoms of Monday-itis, each of the friends would take turns to email the others with a picture of a good looking male, generally shirtless and with a well-defined six-pack, on the Sunday evening to ensure they would be greeted with some Eye-Candy first thing Monday morning. And thus their Monday Morning Eye Candy would set them off in good stead for the rest of the week.
One of these friends - Lil Elk - loved the exercise so much, she felt it was necessary to continue the concept for every day of the week, particularly because she found herself suffering from '-itis' in some form or another every weekday. Thus, Monday Morning Eye Candy (the blog) was born.
Rather than focusing on good-looking men (which doesn't mean they won't be featured), Lil Elk features a range of interesting snippets from all walks of life. Fashion? Definitely. Travel? Of Course. Music? You Bet. Justin Beiber? Perhaps once or twice.
Each day has a unique theme - so make sure you visit regularly to get cured from your daily '-itis'.
