My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
How to enjoy work, even when you are super busy and overwhelmed.
I’m sure that the 121 people who provided reviews on Amazon.com for this Lion Mane cat wig weren’t intentionally being funny, but I killed myself laughing over this. It’s the reviews that get me. People take their cat wigs very seriously.
My Favourite Pins This Week
I can never get enough of brightly coloured veggie dishes, especially ones like this that could do double duty as a side dish or as a main. This Harvest Wild Rice Skillet dish is full of great fall veggies, and cheese. I mean, there’s rice in there too (which I love), but let’s face it-fall, veggies, and cheese. It’s perfection.

It would be impossible to resist a pretty dessert tray with these pastry apple roses, which are far easier than you’d think- it’s all about making sure the apple slices are really thin, so they are pliable. Other than that, this little dessert comes together with only 5 ingredients. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I was immediately smitten with this mug shelf DIY and showed it to Guy- now we are talking about where we put it in our home since we both want to make it! Plus you could paint it any colour you want, so it’ll work for a variety of decor. Such a great way to show off some special mugs! Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
This hairstyle is so easy, it’s perfect for busy mornings. Best for shoulder length and longer hair (side note- very few hair styling posts are on short hair!). Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
