Five on Friday #1

Since I splurged on a new Macbook Air last Sunday, I've been spending a lot more time online. Before I bit the bullet and handed over a substantial amount of cash on this little baby, I used a cheap €100 netbook I bought in Argos. While it did the job for the first few months, recently it takes ages to turn on, and used to turn itself off for no apparent reason. So, not exactly great to be working on. Now that I've more or less caught up on everything in the last few days, I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I've been checking out.




Charlotte from Write Like No One's Watching has been doing up her lounge, and I for one am so excited to see the outcome. I love reading her blog. Like me, she's a single mama, and her boy William is the one of the cutest little guys that ever was. Her latest post has more snippets of the work that's gone on to get them a gorgeous space.




I started wearing my glasses regularly again a few months ago, instead of constantly wearing contacts like I did for years. Last week I found this post on Hello Giggles that made me laugh. I nodded in agreement with all but one of the points they made. 




Claire of Fine and Dandy wrote a handy little post about using backgrounds in your blog posts. Since  now I have the means to blog more, I'll be trying to improve it a lot. This post has been bookmarked to bring a little something something to future posts.


 


This Vice article made me laugh. My Twitter and Instagram feeds have been full of LFW posts recently, with some people really getting involved. It was interesting to see what an outsider thought of the whole thing.


A few weeks back, I tried to find a blog I used to read, and in the process came across this website. OK, so some (read: most) of the content might be bitchy, but I found myself sitting down and having a good old read of this on my phone every evening with a cup of tea and my bitchy face on.


Have you seen anything interesting I can check out on my next binge?
