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!

March Goals

I totally skipped February goals, so I’m going to head straight into March goals. It’s been one of those months where there’s so many things and I feel like I have so much on my plate. I’ve even given up some of the things I like doing (like comedy) in order to make my life a little more manageable.

At the weekend, I moved house, to a bigger room, with more people in the house, and with a much cheaper rent. I’m really hoping this move will help clear my head a little. With more physical space I might feel less trapped. And I enjoy living with more people as well, as you have a strong sense of community. [Read more…]

Lazy Sunday Links 5th February

Last thing I knew, it was Monday morning and I was peeling myself out of bed. Then, suddenly, it was Friday and I was wondering where the whole week went. It really feels like time speeds up the older I get. Life is zipping past my eyes.

I have such a busy week ahead. I have a couple of really big events to run in schools, as well as our annual conference. Just in case I wasn’t sure if I was busy enough already with my job, comedy and blog, I am contemplating starting dating events in Cambridge, too. Why not? (Quietly hyperventilates in the corner).

Let’s linkie!

This week’s tiny home is called The Monacle. It’s soooo pretty!

Bev has been making Boubon biscuits (that didn’t turn out so well…) do you have any recommendations for recipes for her next cookie challenge?

I loved this post about how it feels to live abroad and have a niche that you fit easily into.

When I went on the womens march in London, it was all too clear that it was mainly white people there. New York Cliche has an excellent post on how we as white women must feel uncomfortable with our truth and our privileges. While I don’t think white women should be held responsible for 53% of white women voting for Trump (much in the same way that I wouldn’t hold a random Muslim person responsible for a Muslim extremist’s actions), we do have a responsibility to work with minority groups and understand how their lives are and what we can do to work together.

I read this article on steps to take to be healthier (a lot of them don’t apply to me – soup is OK but I can’t go crazy on it, for example) but one thing I did learn about was oil pulling – a treatment for teeth where you swish oil around your mouth. It sounds so gross.¬† I had no idea is was a thing!!

If they ain’t chasing, they ain’t wanting” – wise words from Vix, as always!

I love these “man repelling shoes” – they remind me of the time I went on a first date with a guy and I chose to wear a lovely pair of dark green tights. He was deffo repelled!

I decided to be pescatarian. It’s been an easy thing to decide but a difficult thing to execute, seeing as my options are now restricted. Amanda from Rhyme and Ribbons has a lovely vegetarian bourguignon recipe – I’ve bookmarked it to make in the week! (Check out those stats as well – even just one vegetarian day a week would be amazing!)

Harper Honey wrote recently about how toxic unpaid internships are, and I totally agree. It’s disgusting the way people take advantage of young people looking to get their foot in their career. An excellent read.

Have this cute little ditty to help you relax before Monday comes again!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Friday Links Saturday 14th

I have a weakness for fluffy ginger cats.

I was meant to put this out yesterday, but I couldn’t. I…think I had burn out? I’ve been back at work two weeks now, and it’s really busy, so I’ve thought nothing of going home and opening my laptop again to keep working into the evening. Then I had a massive 12 hour day on Wednesday when I started off at 6:45am at a networking event, and I was still working until I tore myself away at 6:45pm. Thursday I felt terrible but yesterday I felt like a lorry had hit me – sick, dizzy and like my head was going to explode.

The thing is, my work doesn’t feel like work because I enjoy it so much and it’s things I would be doing anyway, if I had free time. But I have to be mindful that I have only a certain amount of energy to give and I have to make sure I spread that energy out across the week and not fail again like I did yesterday. I feel I let my bosses, who I admire so much, down.

So, instead of Friday links, here are some lazy Saturday readings for you!

Let’s linkie!

Next weekend, I will be at the London march for women, a march for people who want to stand with women especially in the US, in light of the election of Trump. For Americans, it’s so important to understand that people that have been elected work FOR you and they are not the boss OF you. If you’re American and want to be more engaged with politics all year round, this is a great article on how you can do so.

I’ve started back on online dating – and putting effort into it again. I have to remember, though, that I must not drop my dating standards, but raise them instead.

Christmas is a mere memory now, but I loved Ruby’s memories about teaching Christmas in Japan that I had to share with you. It brought back so many memories of my own.

I got this link through the ever wonderful Nicole, but Harper’s top tips to get ready for 2017 is a really great post and I’ve definitely taken some of those steps on board to set in motion.

If you’re in Cambridge, I am deffo looking for people to help me work through all the food trucks here! I’ve shamefully only ticked off one on this list!

I was so honoured to be on New York Clich√©’s list of blogs she’d like to be more like!

I’d like to be a better blogger this year and so I really loved this post on things to do every weekend to help my blog – some really great tips there.

York Minster is such a gorgeous place – if you’re visiting or travelling around the UK I do recommend it!

I’ll leave you with this video about the taboo of talking about salaries. We should look to be more transparent, I think.

Have a lovely weekend!
