Saturday Links

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.

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!

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

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!

My Plan to Better Myself

Jumper – SimplyBe* (Exact), Leggings – SimplyBe* (out of stock)

For a long while I’ve not been happy with who I am and have wanted to improve. Longterm readers of the blog will know that I have struggled to re-adjust to life back in the UK and while it’s been well over 2 years since I’ve been back, I do feel still less of a person than I was when I lived abroad. I feel I’ve lost my edge, my confidence. While I love my job now and can’t imagine being anywhere else, my journey up until this point has been one of lots of struggle through challenging situations. The result is that I have really low self confidence, and I’m constantly scared that the nice situation I’m in right now will disappear if I make a tiny mistake. [Read more…]
