The Link List 2

The Link List

Another week gone… and we’re into March and Autumn. Just like that!

Its been a juggle of a week with both kids sick and hubby interstate for work. Thank goodness we have a quiet week end coming up. Nippers has now finished which means we finally get a Sunday Sleep In! Well, as much of a sleep in as my2morrows will allow.

I hope your weekend is shaping up well wherever you are. In the meantime, here’s some link love I’ve found around the traps…

  • Its Autumn which means blink and Winter will be upon us. Kinda depressing isn’t it! The only upside… a possible trip to the snow this year and the fact that Winter = leather jacket wearing weather. Check out 6 most affordable leather jackets under $500 from Oracle Fox.
  • I was super excited to be part of Working Mums Collective Monday Motivating Mum series. Sarah started Working Mums Collective for working mums to connect, share stories, celebrate successes and really support and empower each other no matter what journey they are on. Its like a cheer squad for working mums! Thanks lovely Sarah for having me!
  • I first saw this on a local parenting group I belong to. What an awesome hubby! Yep, Miles you really do have a way with words!
  • I’m loving all the grey I’m seeing around the place {not the 50 shades type of grey!}. Pair it with Yellow and oh my gosh. Check out Leanne from Lime & Mortar’s latest Colour Pop. Then go back and check out all of her Colour Pops and tell me how many items are on your shopping list!
  • I can’t for the life of me get the Huz to come to a Yoga class with me and have been talking up the benefits for years. So it was interesting to read this article from Fitstar on why men should do yoga.
So that’s it from me for now.
Have a fab one and enjoy this glorious early Autumn weather.

The Link List 1

Hello hello!

Happy Saturday! There’s something rather lovely about Saturday mornings. The whole weekend ahead, so full of promise! I hope yours is shaping up well.

I have a busy one with three nights out IN A ROW! It’s been a while since I’ve done 3 in a row. Like, since the 90’s! Thankfully my little bro gave me some advice… Just go hard on nights 1 and 3 and you’ll be fine. Righto bro!

So today’s post is all about links! I love me a link list and can get lost for hours devouring just… stuff! So after being inspired by my Clever Cookie friends, I thought I’d give it a crack.

I used to be the biggest magazine junkie. Working in media meant I was on pretty much every subs list (even those crazy niche publications). But it seems my magazine junkie days are pretty much over, apart from a few faves of course… Real Living, The Collective, the occasional Harpers. Oh, and the odd gossip rag when I’m in the hairdressers chair!

Besides these few, I actually enjoy reading blogs so much more anyway. Real people writing about real things is totally my cuppa tea. I love the variety of content on offer.

So with that in mind, here’s some bits and bobs I’ve spotted around the place this week that I thought you might like. Pop the kettle on…

  • Do you find it hard to throw away your children’s artwork? Bring them to life and turn them into 3D toys thanks to this Aussie mum. The cutest idea I can’t wait to try.
  • Remember flip books? Check out this proposal!
  • Inspiring Australian of the year, Rosie Batty has launched an app to help women avoid unhealthy relationships. Such important work she continues to do.
  • Been to Dubai? If not, you will want to after seeing this.
  • I’ve been completely hooked on the podcast, Serial and now that I’ve finished all 12 eps and read Smaggle’s discussion post, I’m wondering what to listen to next to fill the void. Any suggestions?
  • Ever wondered what’s in lipstick? Kristy from Loulou Zoo explains. Apparently the average lipstick wearer consumes up to 400 lipsticks in a lifetime! OMG!
  • Bad Mood? The lovely Jess from A Little Part Of The World will help kick it to the kerb with her tips.

So, there you have it. If you too love a link list, be sure to check out The Ultimate Rabbit Hole hosted by Karin from calm to conniption and her awesome Ultimate Rabbit Hole co-hosts – Sam at The Annoyed Thyroid, Jess at A Little Part of the World and Fleur at Our Urban Box.

Your weekend reading is sorted! Enjoy!
