Friday Links May 19

This rain is not OK. It’s almost June, where is the nicer weather? I’m not impressed.

Grab your umbrellas and let’s linkie!

I want the unicorn food thing to come to the UK. I mean look at it!

This Mac X Disney event looks amazing, I’m so jealous!

This Childline app looks like such a good idea. Share it with any children you know!

Can I go to Seoul right now please??

I need to start eating better. Here’s 20 frugal vegan meals – I’ll be making my way through them.

Deepa’s been making the yummiest-looking falafel and I want an invite next time she makes it.

Fancy something sweeter? Amanda has been making some granola bars!

Drunk you is the real you? Eek then I’m an arsehole…

Lastly, let’s have some linguist fun!

Have a great weekend!

 

Book Review: The Glass Wall

There are many books for business women out there. Around 10 of them are currently sat on my Kindle, resting in various percentages. However, there’s something different about The Glass Wall. It really struck a chord with me.

The Glass Wall is a manual for the working world – I would say that it’s not just women but men too who need to read it. Each chapter gives advice on a particular topic, from being ambitious, to showing creativity, to using your anger to help and not hinder you, it has themes that most people will encounter at work.

I’m frankly overwhelmed with how popular yesterday’s post about being authentic has been. It’s really encouraging as I have some plans for this here blog.

I want to focus more on careers – specifically employability skills like doing interviews and writing CVs. These are things I teach to teenagers every day in my job – why not teach them through my blog too. I’m looking into setting up webinars and so on as well. Would this be something you’d be interested in? I’m hoping so!

Let’s linkie!

This potato and herb salad looks FIRE EMOJI.

Don’t eat carbs? Here’s how the paleo diet can maybe help.

Love rhubarb and milk? Co-op has you sorted. (I’ll be looking out for that next time!)

This post by Ashley about being lonely abroad really reminded me how hard it can be to live overseas.

An honest reminder – you do not need to achieve every day.

If you like art and going drinking in London, here are some places you have to try.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This lady can TAKE photos.

This is why I love Reddit.

Nicole is looking CUTE as per.

Have a lovely weekend!

Friday Links May 5th

I’m back from Poland and hit the ground running the day after my late flight back! I’m so glad it’s the weekend tomorrow as I’m ready for another break!

While I was away, I relaxed to the max and caught up on so many blogs (and wrote lots of posts myself, too!) It always makes me happy to spend a few hours each week reading what everyone’s been up to and looking at all the pretty photos!

Let’s Linkie!

My lovely Rosie did her write up on our Dirty Bones visit. (My review can be found here).

This performance tea sounds really good – I contacted the company to ask them to come to the UK!

I saw Boohoo had a great event yesterday – here are five reasons why they’ve had such a boost in profits recently.

Want some poetry about hummus and love? Of course you do.

Ever since the Cambridge creatives walk, I’ve been peeking into the world of these pin-clad ladies and I find it amazing. Am I creative enough to design some pins?? Claire wrote a post giving us an insight into her studio – I’m inspired!

Now I’m back home I’m thinking about where I can go next – maybe Lisbon would be good?

I love emojis as much as the next person, but do we have to have them on buildings now??

Aussa seems to be my travel spirit animal.

Jess has been going meatless each Monday – and this burger looks YUM!

There are some blogger apps in this list that even I don’t have – I have to try them out!

So here’s a story. This week I was running an event which started off with a motivational speech by a really awesome local communications coach. The kids loved him, and at the end, he asked them if they had any questions. He was at the front of the room, in front of the students sat on the floor. I was sat at the back of the room. A girl put her hand up and said, what both the guy AND I heard to be “what do you think of ferret’s penis?” We both sat wide eyed, not knowing what to do.

It turns out that she actually said ‘fidget spinners’.

Not sure what they are?

Here you go.

 

Have a great weekend!
