Sunday Links July 23rd

For the month of July, Cambridge’s artists have opened their doors in an event called Open Studios, where you can just walk into their work spaces and homes to look at their art. There are hundreds of artists doing this over our small city, and while I got my sister to rent a bike so we could cycle round the Mill Road area and visit about 10 places, since then I also visited Burwash Manor and a couple of other places near my house.

It’s been really good. The artists were wonderful and spent time speaking with my art-inspired sister, giving her advice and encouragement, and I picked up postcards where I could, to decorate my walls. I love living in Cambridge, there are so many amazing events like this.

My blog is taking somewhat of a back seat while I get through the ever growing list of blogs to judge for the Bloggers Blog Awards. I have one more week to get through them, and I want to do each blog justice, carefully considering each marking area without rushing.

Let’s linkie!

I had no idea that adults couldn’t dress up at Disney Land, but I guess it makes sense. This workaround looks really fun, though!

Something adults CAN do however is play the NSFW Harry Potter themed Cards Against Muggles

I love the sound of this new capsule hotel at Gatwick! I’ll be checking it out next time I fly.

How to deal with someone who hogs conversations.


Ultimate babe Erica is looking on point mixing spots and stripes.

Longer read – there is a link between poverty and brain development in children.

Lastly, millennials are murderers. WHEN will we stop killing EVERYTHING???

Have a lovely Sunday!



  1. Thanks for featuring me in this, Charlotte!

  2. I knew about Disneybounding, but didn’t know it was *called* Disneybounding. The official Disney blogs have even featured outfits that are themed that way for their Marvel Superhero cruises. Neat!

    Also, I love the idea of the capsule hotel. I never got around to staying in one while I was in Japan, and I haven’t run into it anywhere else. It wouldn’t surprise me if one popped up here, though, because there’s HUGE tourism in Orlando. (And they just added a bunch of direct flights to and from the UK, so…)

    And the “Millennials are killing XX” headlines have gotta stop. None of it is true. Most of those headlines are just highlighting the ways in which a given industry has to change to stay alive, because people’s consumption changes over time. That’s NOT a Millennial Murdering Spree. (Worst spaceship name ever.)

      Someone told me that they’re building a Disney park in the UK soon – I wonder how that will affect tourism in Orlando. We used to go every year when I was a kid. I think British families are more likely to rent out villas with pools; it’s too cold to have outdoor pools here so it’s a novelty!

      • I haven’t seen anything about a UK Disney park in the news out of D23- they’re busy with the new Star Wars lands and a bunch of other changes. It doesn’t matter though- even if they *do* open a new Disney Park, it won’t change the numbers here in Orlando- the Magic Kingdom here has been the biggest theme park by annual attendance in the world for years and years. I looked this up after being super crowded in Tokyo Disney, and I was quite surprised to learn that Orlando’s Magic Kingdom was busier. Here, check out the numbers:
