Friday Links

Flowers along South Bank, Brisbane, QLD.

I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is the internet. You know how it is. You start on a blog that you read every day. They have a link to an awesome blog post by someone else that they like and they have a link…. Anyhow, this is some of the awesome stuff that I want to share.

1. Empowering music video about women/girls/makeup/no makeup/beauty/self image. I may be living under a rock, I’ve never heard of this person before. I found this by following a link from #2 on my list.

2. Creating a capsule wardrobe. This is sounding like something I might actually do. I don’t own too many clothes but would like to refine my style a bit. I will need to buy a few things (I need some shoes and a nice jacket, like¬†reeealy need a jacket!) but that can wait until I evaluate what I currently own (and articulate what I actually like to wear/what fits/is not worn out). My pickiness will be a big help here.

3. Reading this blog. Especially her creative coaching posts in the archives. Love, love, love her advice.

Yesterday I had one of the best yoga classes I’ve ever been to. The playlist was eccentric and amazing and is what made the class. Here’s three of the songs that I actually know (links to the videos):

Song 1 – (Not lyrics you would expect to hear in a yoga class but the overall sound fits.)

Song 2 – (Reminded me of my 2nd grade holiday show. I wore a white skirt, shoes, and top and “danced” to this song. Also reminded me to be happy and smile more. )

Song 3 – (We were in sphinx pose when this came on and I just busted up laughing when I heard it. Tears were running down my face.)

Best. Class. Ever. I had a smile on my face the rest of the day and I’m still smiling when I think of it.

 

I’m off to a BBQ tonight and another get together tomorrow. Who liked the songs/videos I linked to? Song three also brought back memories of childhood. Is that just an American cultural thing or do any Aussies remember that show?¬† Any link love you want to share?

Friday!

South Bank flowers.

It’s Friday and Friday seems to be link round up day if you happen to have a blog. So lets try this out!

Thinking of signing up for this race. I’ve started running again in these “shoes”.

Working on this shawl with some yarn that I’ve had for several years.

Need to find some lamps for the bedroom and really like these, but not sure if I want to pay shipping. Most of our former lamps (all sold when we moved here) were less than $30 so this would be a big step up in spending on lighting for us. Although any decent lamp I’ve seen in Australia starts around AU$80-$100 and may not include a shade. Any clue what’s up with that? Anyone in Australia have store recommendations for home wares?

Looking at soap dish ideas on Etsy. Might make one? Possibly? Haven’t quite found one that I want to buy yet.

I’m a fan of simple earrings and covet these, these, and these on Scoutmob.

I’ve cut my hair before and I’m considering it again. This tutorial is spot on if you’re interesting in trying it yourself.

We’re going to a BBQ tomorrow and might see some koalas on Sunday. Enjoy your weekend!

None of these links are sponsored, it’s just stuff that I use myself or that I think are pretty/cool/useful/interesting.
