Monday Link List: 066Monday, October 13, 2014
I've got a slightly weird Monday Link List for you today. I was cleaning out some draft posts I was never going to finish and stumbled across two partially written link lists from some time earlier this year. I figured the articles are still worth sharing so I've left them in along with a couple from the last week or so. I'll do the same thing with the other one next week and empty another couple of posts out of my drafts. I probably could've skipped this wee disclaimer but some of the posts are a little dated & I didn't want it to get confusing.
Anyway, on with the post. Starting with this gorgeous watercolour from Weewill. The colours are gorgeous and I want to know where to buy the polkadot dress!This mountain view from Chad Singly is just breathtaking.
I can't find a source for this wee guy but I love schnauzer's so much I just had to share it anyway
This page of vintage cocktails is absolutely fantastic.
I totally want to jump on the bandwagon and buy one of these 'It's OK' banners (I blame Estee) but they were all quite expensive. I love this tutorial from Wearing It On My Sleeve for making your own.
Midge knows exactly how I feel about patriarchy. I can't be the only person called Alice who has a bit of a love hate relationship with Alice in Wonderland. I do love this pink haired incarnation of the character from Grace Cho though.
Every year I admire painted leaf art and every year I don't get around to making any. These examples from Hazel Terry are pretty amazing.
This beautiful quote from Karma Voce
Chiaki is a stellar blogger and the loveliest person, my proof, her Little Acts Of Kindness project. I know from experience a tiny act, a kind word or a small token, can make a huge difference and I love projects like this that are simple but so effective.
Another one from Midge, I'm absolutely in love with her Twin Peaks Shrine. Is anyone else as ridiculously excited about them bringing it back in 2016 as I am?
The first obviously dated link, but I think it's a great idea part way through year to take time and see if it is going the way you planned. Being kinder to myself was definitely one of my resolutions so this post Five Ways To Be Kinder To Yourself In 2014 is still pretty relevant to me but it's a good message for everyone all year round.
I loved Angie's post on Blogger Lingo, so useful - especially if you are just starting out.
This post on Growing Up Unvaccinated is such a difficult read. I'm usually all for parent's being able to make the choice that is right for their kids but there are such huge issues with not vaccinating. This women's experience sounds awful and I feel so much for the parents in A Pox On You.
Amelia's post on why Everyone Needs A Hat is absolutely perfect. I definitely want to try and find some cute ones for Winter.
Having been unemployed for over a year until I started at my current work place it really upsets me when people suggest you can just get a job anyway, trust me, I tried anywhere and they just weren't hiring. Even worse is a minister saying that so I loved this response to a comment from Esther McVey Get A Job At Costa? If Only It Was That Simple
This post is just devastating It Happened To Me - I Regret Reporting My Rape To The Police
Another one that might have been better suited to the start of the year but is still fantastically useful 10 Tips For A Productive Life has me pinpoint some ways I can make better use of my time. And on that note, I hope you all have a happy, productive week.
