Sunday Links July 16th

This is late because on Friday I went to Latitude – an arts festival in Suffolk. We only went for one day but I was so flat out exhausted yesterday that I did next to nothing all day.

What I DID do, however, was read blogs for the Bloggers Blog Awards that are happening in September. I’ve only made it through a third of the blogs nominated (and it took the most part of the day) but I found some really amazing posts along the way.

I’ve mixed a couple of the amazing posts I discovered along with my usual linkies, so I wanted to say in advance, me linking to nominated blogs below has absolutely no link to how well they might do over all in the awards. I am one of many judges, and I’ve just selected some really excellent posts I enjoyed.

Let’s linkie!

Jess has been sharing what to do with three days in Rome.

I am the worst at selling clothes online. Luckily, Nicole has some great tips for us here.

I know I only just linked to Ikea stuff recently, but here’s some more of their new offerings that I really, really want. Seriously, who wants a road trip???

Drink Shop Do in London looks SO CUTE. I need to visit!

Next year, I really want to get more stuck into different blogging events, and so I really do want to go to Blogtacular. Here’s Lizzie’s report from when she went!

Every time this girl posts something, I link it. Her photos are amazing. Laura Blair in Kew Gardens.

I loved this post from Jemma about how she changed her life around from a bloody awful situation to being amazing. Really inspiring stuff.

Need somewhere new to eat in London? (As if you’d ever run out) Foley’s looks pretty awesome to me.

Hannah is pregnant! Here’s all the things she’s learnt in her first trimester.

I quite like Bob’s Burgers. I’ve only watched it a couple of times. If you’re a huge fan, you might want to see it live like Steven did!

A really honest and well written post about what blogger Cat learn about herself through counselling.

On the same theme (ish), my hero Grace Helbig published a video on what it’s like to have depression. It’s very jokey but I think it’s really worth a watch.

Have a great Sunday!

Saturday Links 8th July

I was so tired this week. So tired, yesterday when I picked up some bits from the corner shop, I bought the wrong flavour of squash. I bought summer fruits. SUMMER FRUITS. Purple squash is for those under 10. WHY did I buy it???

Let’s linkie on this Saturday evening.

Rosie has a great shopping list for those starting midwife training.

I LOVE me some truffle oil (they have it in Aldi right now!) Portly Gourmet has some lush looking pasta going on!

This Asian afternoon tea looks so delicious. It’s made me crave sushi… I wonder if Deliveroo have some good sushi…

Speaking of food, The Last Food Blog always has the best food photography. These cherry crostinis looks out of this world.

Lindsay Lohan’s tweets are just bloody crazy.

What do millennials want in their workplaces, and which companies are catering for them?

I do very much want to go to Sketch (if just to take photos in their loos).

Like to get stuck in with local cuisine when abroad – but want to avoid the tummy ache? How to eat street food abroad without getting sick.

What to do when you’re feeling meh.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Friday Links June 30th

I am SO excited for the London Colour Walk tomorrow. I’m going with a car full of buddies over to London, dressed in our brightest clothes, taking ALL the photos. I. Can’t. Wait.

Let’s calm ourselves with linkies

Need a new book to read? I downloaded The Cows onto my Kindle following Emma Gannon’s review. Who’s going to be reading it along with me?

I have to admit, I totally do this – say that the date was god to their face but then don’t follow up with a second. Mainly because I don’t feel excitement about seeing them again…

These gorgeous eid outfits are amazing.

Today in “why doesn’t my life look like this??”

Pretty ladies of the week – Lilli looks gorgeous in this green and print outfit.

Lizzie is also on point with these wonderful culottes.

Want to go to Japan? Here are some things you might want to do in Kyoto.

Beverley stayed at Citizen M and it looks amazing.

Write a blog and like stats? Here’s what the perfect blog post looks like.

American teens eat British snacks –

Have a lovely weekend!

Sunday Links June 25th

The weather has cooled and I am not sweating buckets all the time. BUT I have a summer cold and my nose is not functioning.

Let’s linkie to cheer me up

Want some Bronte-style travel inspiration? Amanda has you sorted.

Some new podcasts for your collection.

I loved Steven’s post about a year later in Orlando, it’s really lovely.

Amazon are starting… book shops??

I need to get on poke bowls. I wonder if they’ll come to Cambridge?

Did I link to this already? Fuck it. These floral ice cubes are amazing.

I really loved Alice’s post about layaway friendships this week. Sometimes we have those friendships that just fade away. And that’s OK.

Since the Conservative’s buddying up with the DUP I’ve been trying to educate myself more on what it’s like for women in NI and Ireland on topics such as abortion. Massive Hassle’s piece about being worth of abortion is a must-read.

Have a lovely Sunday!
