Fantastic Links: 29th July

This week I’ve found 11 Links ranging from recipes to make up to book blogging bucketlists!

20 Things I wish I’d known at 20 – I especially love #6 and 14+.

You might love Reading Lists of Fictional Characters – as a rare TV watcher, some of these escaped me, but I loved Lisa Simpson & Matilda.

Even if you have no interest in weddings, I bet you like some of these 15 Geeky Wedding Invites – I adore the Harry Potter themed one (less tacky than it sounds I swear, check it out!)

Love this ‘Twilight Fae’ make up look – definitely too sparkly for day to day, but it makes me think of cocktail parties or jazzing up a simple summer evening look.

This Teal & Gold make up look (very subtle teal!) would be perfect for a big night out.  That blog also has lots of character inspired make up looks like the avengers.

I’ve been thinking about my bucket list/101 in 1001 list recently, and stumbled across blogging bucketlists.  I love both A Glass of Wine‘s & Holes in My Brain‘s book blogging bucketlists. I’m thinking of putting one together – any suggestions for me?

Dean Street Society run month long style challenges, where a theme or prompt is given for each day.  I’m dying my hair tomorrow (to a very dark blonde I’ve never had before) and am debating trying it, as a way to challenge myself while I get used to which colours work and don’t.  The August list isn’t up yet, but July’s can be viewed here as an example.

These skinny cinnamon raisin scones look fabulous as do these tiny Zucchini Tots.

I don’t personally like shrimp much, but I’d love to remake these Grilled Pesto Shrimp skewers with chicken.

  1. These are great links! I love the Harry Potter-themed wedding invites (so intricately done!) and the teal eye makeup. Gorgeous.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today and taking the time to comment! Your tips were really helpful, I’ll be trying them as soon as I can 🙂

    • No problem 🙂 I didn’t have a lot of useful info, but I wanted to let you know that you aren’t alone in those feelings, and to share the few tips I did have.

      It’s kinda staggering to think the wealth of tips and information out there – if everyone passed on one tip, us newbie bloggers would pick things up a lot quicker!

      Hmm, I wonder if there’s a meme for that…probably!
