My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
Parents of daughters… this is worth a read: Raising girls who are includers instead of mean girls.
I feel like everyone needs to read this, if you haven’t already: The F**k Off Fund. Because a woman with some savings has more options in life.
Remember- without gratitude, you never have enough.
Those of you who feel like a short poem, I wrote a poem inspired by J.M.W. Turner’s painting, Sunrise with Sea Monsters, and it was recently shared on a blog that features poems on this theme.
My Favourite Pins This Week
I was super inspired by these watercolour rose heart cookies, although I wasn’t feeling fancy enough to add the gold leaf or use the rose cookie recipe. So instead, I used this cookie recipe as the base, as it was super simple and made great no-chill bakery style cookies. I then followed the original recipe for the fondant tops, and let Lila paint them with diluted food colouring (and if you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw it here). She had a blast, and the cookies were delicious. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
These ham, spinach and cheese puffs are a great idea for lunch or a snack, and could easily be customized with other ingredients- spinach and feta, tomato and cheese, or whatever you like! Like fancy little personal pizzas. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
The best thing about about winter is that it’s basically the season of hot chocolate. Any time, any day, hot chocolate is totally justifiable until basically April (for us northerners, anyway). This white chocolate recipe is simple, delicious, and it’s a scientific fact that rainbow sprinkles make you happy. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
You would never know that these pretty geometric bowls are made out of paper unless you picked one up! This great DIY has the link for the template so you can craft your very on. The one with the gold foil paper inside of it is especially pretty. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
I adore this beautiful artwork done for the Unravel Farnham Maltings festival (UK). I wish I could go just to buy this print- if anyone sees this for sale online, please let me know! Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
Any plans for the weekend? I’m hoping to get some knitting done, I feel so behind!!
