  • I absolutely love Verily magazine (not only because they don’t photoshop their models), but also because they write excellent articles like this one about Blake Lively not doing what we expect of her and everyone getting bent out of shape about it. This very topic has been percolating in my head for a few weeks recently, on how we are so obsessed with consumerism, wether that be of products or celebrity lifestyles, so when Blake goes and does something real and out of the expected lineage of celebrity behaviour, people don’t understand. Fantastic read!
  • I’ve been thinking a lot lately about living life boldly, this article on Tiny Buddah has useful 8 tips on how to face the fear and do it anyway.
  • If you don’t suffer from depression, I urge you to read this article about what depression is and isn’t so that you can be more understanding of those who do.
  • Um, this stylish camera bag is the perfect bag to travel with! It looks like a handbag!
  • What an absolutely stunning story about free diving in the bioluminescence of Thailand’s Phuket bay.
  • You’re probably using makeup products that were tested using animal cruelty. Check your brands.
  • Vanilla Bean Lemonade. Ok then!
  • Why you shouldn’t make rape jokes.
  • I absolutely need this duck feet mirror from Zara Home (with which I have a slight obsession!)
  • Every Wednesday evening I take part in the @LBloggers Lifestyle Bloggers chat on Twitter and every week they have a different host. This week I formed the fastest girl crush ever for @HollyCassell and her wicked awesome blog The Persephone Complex not just because she is badass but also because of her magazine artwork that made me all nostalgic!
  • If you want an idea of what I’m aiming for, Gala Darling’s Media Kit will show you. I still have a long way to go, but I would love to do something epic and helpful to others like she has, in my own special way.
  • This girl knocks it out of the park again with another great post, this time about following your dreams and not sticking with the cookie cutter lifestyle you think you should be living!
  • Have you ever taken a detox bath? I make an effort to add a big handful of epsom salts to my bath whenever I have one (I shower more often) and I always feel amazing afterwards.
  • Beyonce’s 15 minute VMA performance got me catching feels, especially at the feminist bit. I def. have to get this album cos it sounds BOSS. We don’t call her Queen for nada!
  • I love these 13 lessons from Stammerschool.
  • 14 smoothies for an instant mood boost.
  • A one night stand story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Her writing is superb and I’ve met that guy.
  • Since putting on weight, my daily uniform is black leggings and a longline tshirt too – and, I recently discovered the joys of wireless bras!
  • How to make a sock monkey, I… I actually want to do this!
  • Awesome, a very handy explanation of the various forms of non-carnivorous eating. I am Flexitarian.
