Saturday Links

On Monday I went over to Ipswich to visit Grandma with my sisters. She had some very pretty flowers over there!

In the coming week I have so many events to run at work. On Thursday, there will be three events on the same day, one of which is a massive STEM festival for primary school students. We’ve all put in so much hard work into it, I cannot wait to see how happy the students are when they attend.

Let’s linkie!

Want to have some utter joy? I LOVE Mary Lane’s round up of the New York Easter Bonnet parade. The girl with the Hello Kitty fan in her hand would be exactly what I’d be dressed like.

In London but want to take a trip for the day? Hand Luggage Only (my favourite blog right now) has a great list for you to try.

If you’re over here in Cambridge and want some fish and chips, The Portly Gourmet rates the Brewhouse’s offering!

I really loved this post from Runaway Kiwi about the balance between chasing your dreams with your hustle and making sure you’re still healthy.

This time next week I’ll be in Gdansk so I’ve been LOVING Rhyme and Ribbon’s roundup of her trip there!

I have to admit, I’ve been pretty stressed recently, but Rachel Emily has some great tips (and even better lipstick).

Here’s a thing you didn’t know – Japan has known how awesome sweet potatoes are for centuries!

The Middle Sister shares my feelings about the upcoming election.

This week at work I’ve been listening to Solange’s album A Seat At The Table. It’s fucking amazing. Here’s my favourite song for you to enjoy.

Have a lovely weekend!

Friday Links GOOD FRIDAY

Here’s something amazing I had this week, a mac and cheese scotched egg from Station Tavern, a new pub next to Cambridge Station! I went to the opening party and so a post about the evening will be up soon, but I just wanted to share this snack because it was YUMMY!

I love the shop Tiger. It’s one of my favourite things to do when I’m in town – walk around and see what crazy crap they’ve got out – and then buy it all. I guessed it was so, but they plan it all out to be that way, to make more sales. Here’s a really interesting report about it.

I have a fascination with North Korea so this collection of photos from NK buildings was a real treat.

Need some tiny home loving? This Sakura tiny home looks just about perfect for me. I’d want a proper loo, though…

I just love this pretty pink outfit.

Amanda has been to Gdansk – I am SO looking forward to going at the end of the month! It looks so pretty.

Want other cheap places to visit in Europe? Here’s a great list!

A new blog I have come across recently is Kev’s Snack Reviews, which is a really cute blog about (British) snacks. If you’re still wondering which Easter egg to get, Kev has a good selection!

Hull…not a place you’d usually see on a blog! But this year is Hull’s year, and it sure does look like a cool place to be!

Lastly, bloggers out there, don’t be a FAB (Fake Ass Blogger). After being in a chat last night on Twitter with Vix and her followers, I had a little look at how some of my favourite bloggers did on Instagram. I was shocked to see so many of them with lots of bought followers. The method isn’t perfect; it said that I had 12 fake Instagram followers when I’ve never bought one in my life. But there were some with over 50% bought. Not cool, guys!

Have a great Easter weekend!

This is my favourite photo from this week. I went to the opening of a new restaurant in Cambridge, AND THEY HAD HORSES – so, I took a horse selfie. A Horsfie. I wanted to put it on Instagram. But my friend Andrew also took a photo of me taking the horsefie.

Let’s linkie!

Harper has a great post reminding us that we can spring clean the people in our lives, not just the objects.

I’m all about promoting the guys this week, and Bloomzy has written a post on 5 male intagrammers you should be following.

Sian has done it again and has written a banging post about how we shouldn’t feel ashamed or shy about periods.

What does your inner voice sound like? The one that talks to you inside your head. Hmm.

Some people have way too much time on their hands… Memes on your eyelids?!

I went on an Etsy shopping spree this week and found this amazing shop! Everything is gorgeous!

I’m not a huge fan of Tokyo (Japanese countryside is much better) but these photos of Tokyo are seriously making me want to go. Like, now.

Buddha bowls are my favourite dinner right now. Don’t know what one is? Here’s how to make a vegan Buddha bowl!

These unicorn Easter eggs are super cute.

Have a lovely weekend!

Lazy Sunday Links

For the first time in two years, I booked myself a holiday this week. At the end of the month, my sister and I will be going to Gdansk! I’ve wanted to go for the longest time, it’s Poland’s Brighton, it seems – a hipster seaside town! If anyone wants to throw recommendations my way, please feel free!

Half of the blogs I follow, I do so through Bloglovin. However, I’m seeing a lot of conversations in blogger circles about how they’re trying to short change us. They have a new feature where you can publish posts directly from their platform, which would make our own blogs moot. I personally see a lot of people clicking and reading my posts from Bloglovin, but can’t really see those clicks in my own stats page. It would be a massive faff, but I am considering removing my blog from Bloglovin and following everyone (and encouraging everyone to use) Feedly instead.

Let’s Linkie!

Need some new things to read? I have no idea how Amanda runs an amazeballs blog, has a cool career, bakes AND reads so many books, but here are the things she’s read recently…

I love knowing what people do for a living, and how they got there. It’s so fascinating. One of my favourite blogs to read is from Fran, who is a medical student in America. She’s written a beautiful post about how she came to be where she is today, and I really recommend reading it!

Jumpers and pins – why didn’t I think of this?! I’m going on a pin buying spree on Etsy!

The website Wit and Delight is massively on point right now. They’re doing this series of posts about how to cope better and achieve more at work. Every post they have put up recently, I have really (and I mean really) appreciated. Here’s one on how to cope when you’ve messed up at work (boy, have I been there…)

If you’re needing a little more encouragement, kind words, and inspiration, this Tumblr has all of that and more. There are so many amazing spots on the internet right now.

Want to travel the world for free? Hand Luggage Only have an actually pretty decent list of ways you can travel without spending a lot!

As you can see, I’m trying to get better at having my photo taken. I really want to start thinking more about the outfits I create. My idol is Nicole, of course, and I really want to get to the stage where I can look as care-free in my photos as her.

Have a lovely Sunday!
