First instalment of Links I Love for 2017. This time of year there is much talk of resolutions and promises and the internet is a black hole of gym memberships, meal plans, bucket-lists and holiday offers. Er, no thank you!! You wont find any of that here. Let’s leave all the self deprecating, guilt inducing, mind shrinking garbage at the door and instead do some actual internet browsing.
Recently I have been reading up on tree houses, feminism, Empaths, traveling and blogging, hiphop documentaries, woodland adventures and more. Grab a cup of tea (my current fave is the Solaris Organic Rooibos Cacao Chai) play some tunes (check the first link, it’s all my new faves) and have a read through some of the Links I Love.
