My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
Financial tips I wish I knew in my 20s – still applicable now. Although I wish I had known all that stuff in my teens (am I the only one who thinks that financial planning and budgeting should be a mandatory high school course?)
How to stop procrastinating – the 20-10 rule is the only way I get anything done.
Treating yourself is not the answer. So many true things in this!
Five regrets of the dying. This was a lovely read and a good reminder about what is actually important.
My Favourite Pins This Week
Lo Mein is surprisingly easy to make, and you can totally use spaghetti noodles. If you love Chinese food like I do, this is a great weeknight supper idea. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
An unusual dessert idea- pan friend cinnamon banana slices. Very easy to do and delicious on their own, but a might fine addition to a bowl of oatmeal or some french toast. If you have the time this weekend, give it a try! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
By the way, I did a shoe upcycle for Cut Out & Keep, and you can read all about how super easy it is to paint on your shoes! I did these very easy gold stripes on a cheap pair of flats, and I love how they look. You can make them as simple or complex as you like! Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
Also, if you remember my pom pom loving post from last week, I’m really into om poms. I loved this very timely round up of all the ways pom poms are popping up on things this spring! Pinterest link is here, and the original link is here.
Guy passed his citizenship test!! They then did the interview to verify his reasons for being here, the national equivalent of the ‘and what are your intentions towards my daughter’ line of questioning. Now we just wait for his ceremony notification! I’ve very excited for the ceremony.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
