Pretty Confused Monday Link List - Please do not pin this image, click through the link and pin the original Another extra long post for you this Monday. I didn't post last week because I didn't have enough but this one looks like it will be absolutely huge! Starting with this gorgeous print from TheHoneyBeePaperie.

He might be able to convince me if we were going somewhere like here though.  Pretty Confused Monday Link List - Please do not pin this image, click through the link and pin the original I love this desktop background from Maiedae so much that I'm using it on my laptop at the moment.

I use Photoshop for my a lot of my photos, but generally only to fix up the colours and maybe run it through an Action. I'm always interested to see what changes other bloggers make to their photos so I really enjoyed this post from Liana, whose photos always look incredible. 

I've mentioned before that I don't quite feel like an adult yet, so little ones are not in my plans soon, but when the time comes I want to go back and read this post about raising sons to be aware of sexism. 

This post about having a stroke at 33 is a fascinating read. 

And from the clickbait side of Buzzfeed, here's 27 pictures that prove the world isn't as bad as it seems. Yup, I totally teared up. 

Becky has a habit of posting stuff just when I need it, she's managed it again with these tips on branding your blog

With the change of seasons I'm serious thinking about doing a big clean out of my wardrobe (it's long overdue) I'm going to keep this page of questions to ask yourself when cleaning out your closet open while I do it. 

I'm trying to be more aware of what food is in season at what times, so posts like this one from A Thrifty Mrs is incredibly useful. I'm going to be keeping my eye out for Scottish grown butternut squash, apples and wild mushrooms. 

I think of myself as relatively internet savvy but this post definitely put me in my place. I had never even thought about how my use of language could tell people things about me! Worrying stuff for anyone who shares a lot of their life online. 

I've always been a reader, although the merit of some of the things I have read could be debated, and have in the past tried to come up with a list of my ten most influential books to share with you all. It never quite works though. This essay on The Books That Made Me is so much better than any list could possibly be. Every veracious reader should check it out.  

The combination of cold mornings and that fact it is dark when LF wakes up for work at the moment is pushing my getting up time further and further back. I love some of the advice in Kyla's post 10 ways to make waking up easier, although there is no way I am going to be getting up earlier on work days for anything!

Juliet tried out reverse-shampooing, what do you guys think of the trend? I'm still on the fence but I might have to give it a go after reading this review. 

Selfies get a lot of good and bad press but as a big fan I loved Zie's take on selfies as self love.

Danielle's post (and all the comments) about scary stories that stick with you was fascinating and hilarious. It's so funny what little horror stories stick with us. My mum always went on and on about people burning down their houses with candles when I was young and wouldn't let me have them in my room. Now I'm a grown up and allowed candles wherever I want I get ridiculously paranoid that I have accidentally left them on. I've even got up out of bed and gone back into the flat just after locking the door to double check they are all out.

Have you read any really good blog posts this week?
