Friday Links June 5th

As you read this I will be stressing at my desk trying to tie up all the loose ends so that I can go to Japan next week for two weeks. There is no one taking my tasks while I am away so let’s see how long before people understand all the little things I do to make the office run properly 😉

Let’s linkie!

Here’s a TERRIBLE father.

We all know Carrie Bradshaw is a massive liar anyway.

I’m not a smoker so I don’t need this info mostly, but the after-dinner coffee idea is a great way to keep dessert off the mind!

Ahhh I love London when it starts getting warm!

I don’t even know what this is (NSFW language)

Any other Nightvale fans out there?

This is a really good post on natural beauty. You are what you eat!

I really loved Heidelberg when I took a day trip there. Ahh wish I was there again!

Redneck Avengers is amazing. [Video]

Let me leave you with a photo of drunken British people queuing.

 

See you in Japan!

And that was the weather report for the UK.

I missed Wednesday’s post because I suck. I’m a terrible person.

This weekend I’ll be doing the Clasp Walk Out Of Darkness walk in London to raise awareness of mental illnesses and remove the stigma of suicide. It’s the same one I did last Autumn and this time I have a mini group coming with me, so it should be quite good fun.

It’s mental health awareness week this week and I think it’s really important to take time out to make sure we have a good mental setup. Loneliness is one of the main factors of depression, so make sure you have awesome friends around you to talk with when you get down. Anxiety is more common in people than you think, but you still need to have a good routine to go through when you’re feeling pushed.

Stay healthy, people.

Let’s linkie!

People need to start paying for translators already.

I love Sara’s outfit posts! She puts such cute things together!

Need some cute things in your life? Look no further than Stranger London.

I need to stay in these hostels. They look amazing!

This lady does seem a bit silly (I think she should deffo put more effort into her language skills) but I liked this post about marrying someone who speaks a different language.

I’ve never actually been to Leeds, but I really ought to go now.

I’ve been meaning to code some buttons up on my blog for ages. If you want to do the same, Lady Errant has an excellent tutorial.

Very interesting article about women who choose not to have children.

That’s all folks!

Have a great weekend!

Weekly Links 17th April

Omg the weekend is so near I can smell it. It smells like countryside walks and Korean food. Let’s all sleep in late and only come up to go nap in the sun, eh?

 

Let’s linkie!

That amazing top photo is from this even more amazing collection.

Here’s an adorable book available in both Korean and German.

LOL marketing fails.

Homemade matcha oreos sound amazing.

This bar in Shanghai looks so cool.

More Korean stuff! Do you want to learn the Korean for canvas bag?!

Want to learn to code? Here’s how to customize posts with HTML and CSS (Ugh I needed this so much)

You can feel better right now! Yes, you can! Here’s how.

If you’re looking for a new blog to read, Aussa Lorens is bloody hilarious. She’s getting married this week and also has ridic open posts about people around her. Pure comedy.

I think I’ll be going here when I’m in Osaka…

Moving to London isn’t for everyone

 

A short list this week because I am so behind on my blog reading. I’m so sorry 🙁 I’ll do better next week.

Also, after way too many people complained, I’ve started going through my spam message folder with a fine tooth comb because people’s comments keep getting caught up in there. I’m really sorry if your comment got lost! I hope I’ve fished them all out now.

 

Friday Links 23rd May

Tomorrow is the opening night of the play. For half a year (or was it more?) we’ve been working so hard, trying to get our heads around the acting methods and putting this play together. I am really pretty nervous but I really hope that everyone who comes to see us enjoys what they see.

The move back home is just a week away as well. I’m really nervous, and I feel sad to be leaving so many amazing people behind me. I’m lucky to have so many amazing people in my life. But I ultimately feel that it’s the right time to move on. It’s the scariest thing I’ve ever done, but I think I will be happier in the long run.

Enough of that, let’s linkie.

Scientists put a running wheel in the wild. Wild mice, frogs and slugs (!!!) used it!

7 things you (probably) didn’t know about cats

The ‘why didn’t I think of that’ for the week – take your cat camping! (Thanks, Pierre!)

This post on streetside harassment really hit home for me. I don’t get it as bad here in Frankfurt, but it still happens to me. It sucks that we women have nothing we can do to hit back at these loser guys. (Thanks, Janelle!)

I really enjoyed Steven’s photos from Luxembourg. He really has a knack for capturing the essence of each place he goes.

This blog post about an African funeral was really thought-provoking.

It’s stuff like this that makes me really scared to move back to the UK.

British people – what did YOU call the playground chasing game? (And bread, and evening meals…)

Disney princesses re-raced. (Is that a word? Hmm…it is now…)

Linguists against humanity!

Blurred…limes? (Thanks, Sean!)

These socks look really toasty. I think I might get myself a pair next winter.

Who wins at coffee culture, New York or London?

A cafe that bans laptops?! I’d die.

I’d be squeaky squeaky clean if I had these!!

This is how people get gay, right? (Thanks, …Sean??)
