Friday Links Oct 20th

This week has gone by so quickly, but I’ve also not stopped. Wednesday saw me in London at a Westminster Forum event about apprenticeships. It was so interesting, and it’s so important for us to get this right to help the UK’s economy, the unemployment rate and help the next generation. I could rant all day about it. But this is not the platform.

Tomorrow is my #CBGTown Indoor Market! Please do come along to St Andrew’s Street Baptist Church from 11am to find fantastic crafty things as well as clothes from the wardrobes of Cambridge’s most stylish bloggers and Instagrammers!

Let’s linkie!

I definitely relate to some of Cat’s post about toxic feelings bloggers can have. Luckily I have so many amazing blogging friends, it’s easy to shake them off.

Apparently Hospitality in the Park is completely different to what I would have imagined it to be about.

Want a long read? This mattress blogging drama is a long, but highly interesting saga.

If you’re looking for something slightly trippy but very relaxing, I found a strange little website that might be just the ticket for you. (Warning: very addictive).

I do truly feel like I’m in the culture of busy – I do so bloody much. I make sure to schedule in some rest, though – here are some great tips on how you can do the same.

On the same kind of theme, I loved this post from The Stripe on her experiment to limit her digital consumption – and how that effected her.

I completely agree with Ashley – I don’t do reading challenges either as I really love reading, I don’t want to put a KPI on it.

I’m going to leave you with some British slang for you to learn. Enjoy!



  1. thank you for linking to my post! And I loved that mattress article too! x

  2. The mattress article was so fascinating! I had no idea that Casper was so nefarious! But then, big business does some truly abhorrent things, so that shouldn’t be a surprise at all.

    Also, the culture of busy and digital detox articles were near and dear to my heart- I am CONSTANTLY planning new things, despite not having the time, energy, or (frankly) money to keep going the way I do. My need to not be still runs contrary to the anxiety that I have, and it’s all very unhealthy, I think. I am thinking about following thestripe’s lead and removing a lot of the social media from my phone. It’s SUCH a time suck, and it’s so full of venom and vitriol…

      If you do have a digital detox, do let me know how it goes! I think for me, I wouldn’t want to, nor would I see any benefit from doing that. The digital world makes me feel much less lonely.
