This Week in Links

I spend a lot of time reading through other blogs but rarely do I leave any comments (really need to start doing that!). So in the spirit of all things nice and friendly I thought it would be a great day to highlight some posts that I've been loving from my reading this week! I think this is something I might want to start doing more often because it was a lot of fun picking up the pieces that really spoke to me and it's also a great way to help some people discover some new blogs.

  • Nouvelle Daily brings some great tips on iPhone photography! I'm constantly taking pictures on my phone (Instagram is my crack) so I loved reading this post that revealed even some new tricks to me!
  • This DIY braid featured on the small things blog looks so beautiful and effortless. In an attempt to present myself as someone who has their life together (spoiler: still a work in progress) I've always been horrible at doing hair, I'm in the works to master the fishtail braid but this also looks like something great and manageable for me to try!
  • Zoella introduced to us her adorable guinea pigs Pippin and Percy and I think I'm in love. I have a guinea pig of my own, and I've had piggies ever since I was just 3 years old! I can't imagine my life without one of these cavies by my side, so naturally I just died when I saw this post.
  • I absolutely love reading Allison Anderson's blog because just the quality of the posts as well as the quality of the pictures really impresses me. Every month I live vicariously through her for her PopSugar unboxings and one day I will be able to afford a subscription of my own!
  • This arugula and orzo salad looks amazing from Coffee Beans & Bobby Pins and definitely has been added to my list of things to attempt to duplicate!
  • This review on the push up liner that I found on Amy Elizabeth Fashion really made me want to pick one up for myself! My beloved Stila is starting to reach the end of its life and I'm thinking this may be worth the splurge!
  • Unpredictable & Chic came up with a great list of books to read and I must say I agree with them all! It also reminded me that I need to pick up Dark Places because Gone Girl was just phenomenal and seriously had me guessing until the end and delivered an ending that made me uneasy but still satisfied.
  • Claire over at Becoming Bradshaw has to be one of my favorite blogs to read and this week she came up with a post about how secondhand is sustainable that really caught my attention. Check it out, it's a great read!
  • Let's just keep talking about food because Fashionlush is killing me with this spicy summer salad with watermelon, avocado and cheese??!
  • Just one more food link I promise, but I love Rachel's blog, Harlot Beauty, for all the unboxings she does (sending some good thoughts on your recovery too!) and she got me so tempted to order an Orange Glad Sweet Box, that babka and hazelnut cheesecake brownie looked divine.
What are some of your favorite blog posts from this week (or all time!)? Share them in the comments below I would love to check out some new blogs!
