Monday Elevenses

Monday, August 29, 2011

I'm going to get this right out there; I love links lists! I think they are a fantastic way of looking into the mind of the person creating them, you can see so much of what is going on in their life based on the stuff they have been reading over the week. And what time could you possibly need a links list more than coffee break on a Monday morning?

So... here's to the start of a new weekly tradition, my Monday Elevenses links list.

  • Last Monday Kaelah Bee talked about the dark side of blogging in her post 'Getting Real' and how fashion/lifestyle blogging is a community, not a competition.
  • I absolutely adore Elsie's Folk Art Bride & Groom photos, the setting is amazing and I love how insanely happy they look together. 
  • Franca from Oranges and Apples takes a look at the 'dating rules' and tells us how she broke every single one finding her future husband here.
  • Sarah at Yes and Yes talks about what a feminist looks like
  • This 'Where The Wild Things Are' photo shoot is incredibly inspiring,  so beautiful!
  • I adore buying second hand, but I think even I would think twice before buying any of the things on this list 'The Best Worst Stuff People Tried To Sell At The Junk Shop'.
  • Payton talks about the amazing experience she had with the 'fashion whisperer' at Betsey Johnson here
  • Christine talks about femininity and strength and how we can encapsulate both these qualities. 
  • Just in case you haven't already heard, Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky has some amazing news for everyone here
  • As someone trying to get fit I found this article about yoga really interesting, although she basically confirmed all my greatest fears about people who do yoga, I'm am also even more inspired than ever to try it out. 
  • VisualBasic has a fantastic tutorial on how she does her blogger sketch Sunday drawings and I cannot wait to see if I can manage it myself. 
And finally, I absolutely adore this quote from Ellen Page, and yes, I wanted to be Aladdin.
