Monday Link List: 061Monday, January 06, 2014
How about that? It is already the first Monday of the new year! I definitely feel like I'm starting this year as I mean to go on. I've got a couple of resolutions that I have, so far, managed to stick to. I'll share them with you later this week. Right now it is time for the first Monday Link List of 2014!
I really need a big shopping bag and I love this handmade one from Always Rooney, you could fit pretty much everything you could possibly need in there.
I've been wearing a lot of black lately and I really want to try and inject a little bit more colour into my wardrobe, without feeling like I am too bright. I really want to try to recreate this outfit worn by Christen, it looks amazing.
This card from Amy Rubin Flett kind of sums up my resolutions for new year quite nicely.
I love everything about this outfit from Rosie, the elbow patches, the bow and the tartan skirt are all just perfect.
This painting by Becca Stadtlander is absolutely stunning - doesn't it make you want to go live in Sweden or in the Alps?
Tartan, a sathel and a whole lot of burgandy/oxblood, I'm sure you can guess why I am crazy about this Scottish inspired look from Mode and The City.
Maissa Toulet makes the most amazing family trees using photos and scrapbooking equipment. Such a sweet and fun way of showing off your family history.
This print, If On A Winter's Night, is absolutely stunning, it reminds me of walking through the forest in Sweden a couple of years ago and the way your feet sink deep into the snow.
I just cannot take with my how cute this puppy is! I definitely think more animals should wear dapper scarves (in case you are wondering, this wee guy is a burmese mountain dog and damn do they get massive)
This print and CS Lewis quote are absolutely gorgeous, another one that is perfect for the new year.
Youth, Folly & Wrinkles: I noticed my first wrinkles relatively recently, a crease under my eyes from when I smile and, honestly, I did freak out for a moment. It was really interesting to read Sally's post about her feelings of invisibility and how she felt noticing the fact she is starting to age.
My Year In 366 Seconds: You guys have to watch this video, it is possibly one of the coolest 365 projects I have ever seen. What an amazing way to share little moments of your year.
Why Don't We Believe That Women Are Happy Being Single? As one of those happily coupled people maybe I shouldn't be weighing in on this, but all my closest female friends are currently single and this is my promise to them that I respect their happiness.
Tips For Going Cruelty Free In 2014: If one of your resolutions this year is to think more about where products come from I definitely recommend this post about cruelty free products from Mo. It's a small but significant way of making a difference.
Bloggers Giving Back: Melyssa's new project encouraging bloggers to get together and take part in charitable projects is such a great idea. Anyone in Scotland interested in joining me?
Blog Crush - October Rebel:I share October's outfits all the time in my Monday Link Lists so I just had the include this interview with the lovely lady herself on Garden Variety.
I'm A Fashion Blogger But My Readers Hate My Style: It's funny how blogging, whether you showcase your personal style or not, forces you into the public. I can't even imagine how difficult blogging here would be if you guys were negative about my personal style. Such an interesting post.
Super Quick Light Box For Better Photos: We don't get the best light in our flat, especially at this time of year, I love how easy Allison makes creating your own light box for photography look and the final result is absolutely fantastic.
