Friday Links September 29th

It’s back to my busy work life, as the events calendar at work is now in full swing, and school events are happening at least a couple of times a week. It means that I’m back to flat shoes that I can run around a school in, and soft trousers that allow me to move about when I teach. It’s cheaper than going to a gym.

Tomorrow I’ll be going to Leeds to the Bloggers’ Blogging Awards, in which I was a judge. I’m really looking forward to hanging out with some of my favourite bloggers and meeting them in real life – though I’m quite nervous as well!

Let’s linkie!

If like me you have too much month at the end of your money, you might want to check out some of these money apps. (I’ve just downloaded an Andoid version of Mint – will be testing it out!)

Sarah talks about going on Weight Watchers (I really want to join Slimming World to see how that helps me lose weight as well)

Slightly less diet-friendly is this Toblerone icecream

My Pinterest currently looks like October has exploded all over it, but if you would like some Autumn on your Insta feed as well, here are some amazing feeds to follow.

A very interesting Atlantic piece about women bullying each other in the workplace.

Amanda is going to a plant-based diet now and I would love to learn from her.

As someone who blogs alongside a very busy job, I related so much to this post about juggling the two.

There’s some awesome things going on in October in London.

Claire is showing us her pen obsession – and has a fab giveaway!

Who wants to treat me to a meal here for my birthday (next week!!!)

I’ll leave you with the funniest thing I have seen all week. Enjoy!



  1. Thanks for the link love!

  2. I feel you on the more month than money 😂 Look forward to celebrating your birthday next week!

  3. Good linksmin this batch. Btw, I’ve been using Mint since sometime around 2008, and it’s pretty awesome at the money tracking. It’s really handy to be able to see it all in one place.

    • Charlotte says:

      I’ve been using Wallet by the Budget Bakers. It’s a little hard to use, and it’s not completely accurate either; I have to keep going through listings and reassigning them (“food” listed as “petrol” for example).

      • Mint sometimes needs a little guidance on the categories also, but there’s a tickybox to say “this payment should always be reset to this category,” and it will remember for the future. It also lets you add your own categories, but the default list is pretty thorough.
