Friday Links 26th August

I don’t even know when the last time was that I actually put out my links on a Friday. But I’m sat here on Thursday evening, trying out a new routine of blogging in Starbucks for a few hours and then going to the gym – as opposed to going to the gym right after work. The reasoning is that perhaps the gym would be quieter if I left it a little later. I don’t know, maybe it’ll work…

 

Let’s linkie!

This Caribbean themed party looks really great! I hate baking so I’ll be saving that no-bake cheesecake recipe!

The list of books I want to read gets longer by the day, but I am all up for boosting amazing girl-power inspirational books to the top of the queue.

This pea tart looks AMAZING! I think I’ll be giving it a go this weekend.

AirBerlin seems to be a pretty awesome airline to fly with! I’ll have to check them out next time.

I went to a blogger meetup last week and met the amazing Sophie Kate – here’s her writing about how every blogger should attend a meetup! (So true!)

I also got to hang out with Sian from Style with Friends – and I even took a few photos of her. I deffo need to up my skills…

Need some new podcasts and like travelling? Here are some great options (actually I’ve never heard of any of them, so I’ll have to give them a go!)

I used to LOVE going to games arcades in London and when we went to the seaside. But I’m so sad we don’t have them these days –did Japanese gaming kill them?

There are a few bloggers out there – if you’re thinking of starting a newsletter, perhaps you can learn from Pack Your Passport’s mistakes?

No video this week! I need some new YouTubers to follow – please let me know if you have any recommendations!

Have an awesome weekend! x

 

When You Need Burgers, There’s Zaks

Zak's Ameircan DinerThetford, Norfolk

Now, back in Frankfurt, I was nothing short of the burger queen. I knew all the best burger places around, and frequently went to try new offerings.

This is probably why I put on so much weight, which I am now trying to burn off at the gym.

Now I’m in the UK, I don’t eat as many burgers as I did before. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t still enjoy them. [Read more…]

My Current Favourite Etsy Shop: Resilience Streetwear

IMG_20160716_110333

I really love the online marketplace Etsy. It’s great because instead of giving to large companies, you’re giving to hardworking individuals, and also 9 times out of 10 you’re getting something that’s really unique, often one of a kind.

I’ve been mooching around Etsy more often than normal lately, which is a habit when I have little money to spend on cute things, but I have fallen in love with one shop in particular. A T-shirt shop called Resilience Streetwear. [Read more…]

Saturday Links Aug 20th

I’ve had a pretty shitty week. Really shitty. So I’m all about being selfish this weekend so I can make myself feel better. I had an amazing lunch of Indian dosa today, and I’m off to a blogger brunch tomorrow. I can’t wait!

I’ve also started to push myself to be adventurous again. Usually, I’ll come home from the gym after work, make dinner and then sleep. But I went out to the cinema last week on a “school night” and it was really fun! I need to ignore my tiredness and DO MORE THINGS! There are more hours in the day than I am currently using.

Let’s linkie!

I love the photo above. See the whole set here.

I have to say, I have no idea what jackfruit is, but these do look amazing!

Seven Eleven in Japan really is the best. I miss conbini so much!

Isn’t this Mario artwork adorable?!

These things that are surprising about blogging are so true. When I mention my blog to people, they just think it’s a little thing I do on the side. They don’t understand the time it takes it, the work that has gone into it and the skills I’ve had to learn along the way.

A lovely post from Writes Like A Girl about whether you can still be body positive if you wear shapewear. Really interesting discussion there.

Mrs Ralf recently shared a room in a conference with an internet-famous empowered woman. But she wasn’t how she expected her to be

I’ve had a few terrible dates myself but THIS is by far the worst I’ve ever heard of!

These Suicide Squad outfits are just perf!

Speaking of Suicide Squad, Katana’s Japanese was the worst. I wish she’d been given accent coaching like these guys – enjoy!

Have an awesome rest of your weekend!
