OS-2-8Links I LoveWell this month has been an actual roller coaster of work and play.  We had the Galway Fashion Trail with the Galway Now Magazine, we had the #itwbnBloggerEvent too, Blogging 4 Business. I  attended my fave store, Amber’s 1st birthday and started a new job too! Im currently working on a rebrand of my blog and organising the Into The West Blogger Network‘s Christmas drinks too!

Its been a sad month for internet reading. With all the evilness in the world and the attroscities being  committed, Facebook was somewhere I didn’t spend much time. I have how ever been reading up on some nice stories that have come out of these horrible events in the world. Ive been listening to great music, looking up some awesome photography and doing some online shopping too! Grab a cuppa and catch up on the Links I Love..

This is how I find most of my favourite, most interesting blogs, sites and links on the internet and I love it!

Open it to possibilities, adventures, ways of life, kick ass music  and exciting projects. This month I have been reading alot about Astrology, Feminism, looking at photos of old Hollywood, watching Autumnal themed movies and eating Propercorn – have you tried it?! YUM!

Links I Love

Home sweet home, I don’t think I knew the meaning of this saying like I did this week! I normally love traveling and airports but travelling from Friday to Tuesday just to get back to my own bed was hard work! Airports are fun, for like ten minutes not two days and they certainly are not nice to sleep in!

I am happy to be home though, kind of.. its bittersweet I suppose. Thailand really stole my heart and I’m thinking I’ll have to go back at some stage to find it!  I have thousands of photos to retouch and I have some posts about my travels lined up too but in the mean time, heres some Links I Love!

Over the last few weeks I have bookmarked and saved quite a few new bits to share on this Links I Love so  put the kettle on, sit back and enjoy some of the random sh!t I found on the internet lately..

*Hint – clink on the last link for some nice music to listen to while you read!

  • Forget Kim K, bow down to the new queen of Instagram

desserted beachLinks I LoveI absolutely love the random things I find on the internet and the ease at which one can educate oneself on so many topics. Here in Thailand, I’ve been reading alot about the history of Thailand, its people and their customs as well as all the animals here too. It’s such a culture shock when we travel that being able to google, learn and educate ourselves on the go really is amazing. It makes me appreciate the readiness of information we are open to.

I have been getting alot of work done here but also alot of reading, researching, planning and bookmarking for the Links I Love series too! So heres some of the cool and random things I found recently on the internet for your enjoyment. Hope you like…

  • Serious glitter and sparkle house envy here
  • Girl Scouts of America are for every girl YAY!!
  • The real 50 Cent?
  • For anyone going to Thailand, I urge you to visit ethically
  • I really cannot wait to see Tangerine, great story shot on the iPhone 5!
  • Got Wanderlust? Tattoo it!
  • Surrender your problems to the universe now
  • Loving this tune by Jidenna, what a dapper thing he is!

Wild Waves on Galway BayLinks I LoveI should be packing right now. Packing for a big trip.. but I’m on a seeeeerious procrastination buzz at the moment and Im not sure where its come from. Being a super busy, super work driven person, Im not sure this packing-procrastination version of myself is one I like. Im not sure about most people, but I don’t really like packing. I dont like trying to figure out wtf Im going to want to wear in a weeks time, not to mention a months or two months time!! Then theres all the little bottles, the ‘just incase’ items, the passports etc. Oi, oi, oi, no! Packing just isn’t my game.

I’ll probably do what I always do and pack five minutes before I leave for the airport and I’ll definitely forget something! Anyways, what better time to share another instalment of the ‘Links I Love‘ series! Heres some gems I found on the internet lately. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy!

  • These ladies don’t just lead and inspire, they absolutely ROCK!
  • A place where girls run the world? Im simply in awe.
  • Mama Lee‘s got it all figured out, now to find me a boat..
  • Nature is taking back North Border Island.
  • Love ’em or hate ’em – they’re here to stay! Why not make your own!!
  • The case for Vegetarianism has never been more compelling or cute!
  • Bet this guy never thought his life would be like this.
  • For anyone going to Thailand, I urge you to visit ethically
  • Meditation actually changes your brain

Carraroe Beach Scene Links I Love

This is the first of the Links I Love series since moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress. To be honest, I thought I wouldn’t get used to WordPress as Iv been on Blogger for nearly five years but it really is a miles better and I see the rewards already!! So anyway this is my first post from the Links I Love series that will be published on the new site which is cool.

Iv been insanely busy with Into The West Blogger Network’s recent birthday event and #itwbnBlogSchool not to mention two more mini events before the end of the summer! I have have a lot of work and stuff to get done before going away in July too! Roll on Summer!!

Recently I have been seeing a pattern in the links Im loving and bookmarking for this post. There seems to be a pattern of positivity, mindfulness and self awareness. Which, as I see it, is always good for the soul – especially around this time of year. Hope you enjoy these Links I Love..
