Lazy Sunday Links

I’ve been slightly quiet this week as I’ve been focusing my blogging time on switching web provider. I have been with Bluehost who were great to start with, but the people at PeoplesHost reached out to me on social media, and I realised I’d be so much better off with them. They are so super friendly, and they didn’t even make me feel bad for not really knowing what all the bits behind my blog – server, plan etc – actually were.

I have, however, been doing some exciting things recently and so I’m excited to tell you all about my adventures!

Let’s linkie!

Do you want to see some photos of an amazing doggo having a blast in Croatia? Of course you do. This is one happy dog.

I wish I had the style sense of Nicole. She always put together the prettiest outfits. I totally bought some cute coral Clarks ankle strap shoes the other day that I thought were very in her style (psst don’t tell her, it makes me sound like a stalker…)

Speaking of stylish ladies I admire, Amanda has been looking very swish in this jumpsuit – would you please go tell her she doesn’t look like a flight attendant?

One of my goals with my self improvement plan is to spend more time relaxing. I have such a stressful life – work, family etc – that I often don’t carve time out to just chill. Bloomzy has an excellent list of things to do to look after yourself. The list may seem obvious, but I’ve found it really helpful, to pick off a couple of options to try each week.

There’s a new coffee place in Cambridge and I cannot wait to go try it out!

Iceland is on my to-do list, but I’ve always thought I needed a fair amount saved up before. Jess shows that you can do it on a budget.

Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve felt quite self conscious about my small vocabulary in English. I did read a lot as a kid, and I went to a good school, but I guess my word bank is just quite small. I love this word board idea – I think I might try it out to get some more words into my day.

Have a lovely rest of Sunday!

Cambridge Botanical Gardens (In the Rain)

I visited the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens back in the Autumn, but I really want to see them in each season. I have a couple of Japanese friends who are leaving the UK soon, so we went over to see what’s going on there! [Read more…]

Saturday Links March 11

Last night I finally got round to watching the film A Streetcat Named Bob. It’s based on a true story, of a guy called James who was homeless, but was adopted by Bob the cat. Bob followed James around while he busked or sold the Big Issue.

Throughout the film whenever the cat did something cute I’d go “AWWWWWW” and I think I was driving my housemate crazy…

If you’ve not seen this film yet, I highly recommend it!

Let’s linkie!

My girl Jess is rocking a one-shoulder dress, in heels, in a forest somewhere. Come on, give her some love – bloggers work damned hard!

Speaking of blogger friends, Karen has been writing about her foodie finds this week. Those noodles sound amazing!

Need some feminist merch in your life? These all look amazing – I think I’ll buy myself a couple of bits.

I loved this story – in Utah the schools stopped doing sex ed, so this porn site created sex ed videos to bridge the gap.

Need some career boosts? I love these ones!

I’m so proud of Janelle, who has just come out of her marriage, and is showing strength, positivity and growth. She’s written an excellent guide – not just on how to get out of a marriage alive, but I think these things can be applied to any unpleasant situation.

I really want to go to this drinking in the dark bar!! Maybe I should go by train to London next time…

I love the new little girl next to the Wall St bull – but I completely agree, she shouldn’t be diluted to a photo-op.

What are parts of French life that you adopt as an expat there?

Have an awesome weekend!

The Instagram world in Cambridge has been in a flutter with a new pub restaurant in the Mill Road area. The Petersfield opened a couple of weeks ago and so I grabbed a couple of my favourite Cambridge foodies to try it out! [Read more…]
