Friday Links March 24th

You guys.

I put the message out on Instagram and Twitter about me having had a troll commenter and I was inundated with messages on all platforms. Sometimes I wonder why I blog – why do I spend so many hours on something when (let’s face it) I’m not going to be one of the big players any time soon, and I don’t make any profit from it. But it’s the community and the people I meet through my blog that make it worth it. I love my blogging community, and my Instagram one too. <3

Let’s linkie!
Love sassy t-shirts and want to help fight cancer? Look no further.

I loved Kristin’s post about the different options we have in life, and how life has a strange way of working on in the end.

Next time I’m in London, I want to check out these urban jungles. They look so photogenic!

Are these snaps from 48 hours in Paris the most stylish trip photos ever? (Why doesn’t my life look like this??)

Sian is ALWAYS looking on point. I love this quirky panda dress!

Have you ever had questions for France?

I love these finance tips – things I wish I’d know when I was in my early 20s as well.

In the dating game, there are certain things we always expect. Vix hits the nail on the head as per.

Steven’s been having some trouble sleeping – shall we all sing him a lullaby?

Have an awesome weekend!

Lazy Sunday Links

I’ve been slightly quiet this week as I’ve been focusing my blogging time on switching web provider. I have been with Bluehost who were great to start with, but the people at PeoplesHost reached out to me on social media, and I realised I’d be so much better off with them. They are so super friendly, and they didn’t even make me feel bad for not really knowing what all the bits behind my blog – server, plan etc – actually were.

I have, however, been doing some exciting things recently and so I’m excited to tell you all about my adventures!

Let’s linkie!

Do you want to see some photos of an amazing doggo having a blast in Croatia? Of course you do. This is one happy dog.

I wish I had the style sense of Nicole. She always put together the prettiest outfits. I totally bought some cute coral Clarks ankle strap shoes the other day that I thought were very in her style (psst don’t tell her, it makes me sound like a stalker…)

Speaking of stylish ladies I admire, Amanda has been looking very swish in this jumpsuit – would you please go tell her she doesn’t look like a flight attendant?

One of my goals with my self improvement plan is to spend more time relaxing. I have such a stressful life – work, family etc – that I often don’t carve time out to just chill. Bloomzy has an excellent list of things to do to look after yourself. The list may seem obvious, but I’ve found it really helpful, to pick off a couple of options to try each week.

There’s a new coffee place in Cambridge and I cannot wait to go try it out!

Iceland is on my to-do list, but I’ve always thought I needed a fair amount saved up before. Jess shows that you can do it on a budget.

Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve felt quite self conscious about my small vocabulary in English. I did read a lot as a kid, and I went to a good school, but I guess my word bank is just quite small. I love this word board idea – I think I might try it out to get some more words into my day.

Have a lovely rest of Sunday!

Saturday Links March 11

Last night I finally got round to watching the film A Streetcat Named Bob. It’s based on a true story, of a guy called James who was homeless, but was adopted by Bob the cat. Bob followed James around while he busked or sold the Big Issue.

Throughout the film whenever the cat did something cute I’d go “AWWWWWW” and I think I was driving my housemate crazy…

If you’ve not seen this film yet, I highly recommend it!

My girl Jess is rocking a one-shoulder dress, in heels, in a forest somewhere. Come on, give her some love – bloggers work damned hard!

Speaking of blogger friends, Karen has been writing about her foodie finds this week. Those noodles sound amazing!

Need some feminist merch in your life? These all look amazing – I think I’ll buy myself a couple of bits.

I loved this story – in Utah the schools stopped doing sex ed, so this porn site created sex ed videos to bridge the gap.

Need some career boosts? I love these ones!

I’m so proud of Janelle, who has just come out of her marriage, and is showing strength, positivity and growth. She’s written an excellent guide – not just on how to get out of a marriage alive, but I think these things can be applied to any unpleasant situation.

I really want to go to this drinking in the dark bar!! Maybe I should go by train to London next time…

I love the new little girl next to the Wall St bull – but I completely agree, she shouldn’t be diluted to a photo-op.

What are parts of French life that you adopt as an expat there?

Have an awesome weekend!

Saturday Links March 4th

Is anyone else obsessed with This Is Us? I was so excited when Breakfast For Dinner was covering it on their podcast and discussing the episodes – as the UK is running it at the same time as the US. But when they started talking about events that I’d not seen yet (and I am up to date with the UK episodes) I had to rush to pull over so I could skip that segment and not get any spoilers. I’d usually not care, but this show has so many twists and turns that it’s really painful to know what’s coming up.

I had a bit of a shitty week at work. I kept making mistakes and I really hate making mistakes. I’ve had busy jobs before, but I think there are so many different things I’m doing, it’s easy to overlook the details miss over incorrect information. I really hope I do better next week.

Let’s linkie!

Queen blogger Vix is talking about how we need girls that look like us in sex scenes.

I’m obsessed with this cat collar shirt.

Amanda is amazingly honest about diet culture – I completely agree with her.

Would someone please go to Brussels with me?

This is probably the longest I’ve had my hair ever – but I want it a little longer. Franish has some great tips for healthy hair!

Ashley Abroad has visited England and has a great little trip roundup. I really want to go to Sketch…maybe that should be next on my list.

Rosie has been so busy recently, I can barely remember what her lovely face looks like. I’m not surprised she’s been MIA though, she’s had so much going on at work in the hospital!

A bit of a niche video, but I quite liked this interview with Japanese people, asking what they thought of foreign countries. Japanese friends have told me before that the kitchen wrap in the UK is terrible – it made me laugh that a girl listed it as one of the bad things about visiting LA!

Have an awesome weekend!
