This print by LifesLittleJems is adorable, there are a couple of people I know this would make a wonderful present for.

Now that I'm working again time seems far more important to me, I want to make sure I take some time most days that focusses on me, from The Nectar Collective.

This blueberry and vanilla bean ice cream from PS Heart looks absolutely delicious.

Another set of beautiful photos (and a gorgeous dress) from Rebecca at The Cinnamon Slipper

Damn right.

Yup, that's me.

I wish I knew where I could get a copy of this print, reverse searching on Google hasn't helped me but I think it would be perfect in the kitchen to show of my sushi love.

I'm really proving how much of a homebody I am in this post, but I couldn't resist this print from FreyaArt
This stripy shoe DIY from Now That's Pretty is the perfect way to spruce a pair of dull, dirty shoes.

I love this work outfit from KiddoTV, white shirts tend to remind me of school and I've avoided them since but I love how grown up and classic Megan looks in these photos.

Five Places To Eat In Edinburgh: LF and I tend not to eat out very often, it's a case of choosing what to spend our money on, but I'm quite tempted to try out one of Lynne's suggestions as a birthday treat.

Let's Get Real About Body Issues: Moorea talks about her own body issues, trying to combat them and taking the time to take care of herself. 

Thoughts On Pigeon-Holing: I grew up with the idea of a 'career' pushed into my brain, but I've always been indecisive about my future. I think that is why I loved Rachel's post about trying to decide on a direction or keeping her options open.

On Going Braless: Jul talks about being comfortable enough to go braless and gives some tips if you want to take the plunge but are a bit nervous.

Sometimes... Self Employment Sucks: I love how honest Ashley is in this post about her difficulties being self employed. I think I have the tendency to see all these successful self employed bloggers who run their own businesses with a lot on envy, it's easy to forget that it can be a lot of hard work.

Hot Tomato: Did you know that there is a Tomato Art Festival each year in East Nashville? How cool is that? You can see some photos and hear a bit more about it on Lauren's blog.

Lessons Learnt - Studying Abroad: Biva's post is full of great advice if you are travelling to study, and applies equally if you are just making a big move. I'm always amazed by people who have the guts to move across the globe and experience new cultures without the safety net of a flight home booked. 

Why We've Learnt To Hate Ourselves: Jes takes a look at the historical movement that has brought us to our current climate of body shaming and self esteem issues.  

Dress Up Game: I love paper dolls when I was little, so of course I have had loads of fun playing this dress up game by Anna Grape.
