Weekend Reading.


What are you up to this weekend? Any plans? It’s my birthday on Sunday so I’m doing a few fun things over the next couple of days and making a weekend out of it! I’ll share some photos on the blog next week, crossing my fingers for nice hot weather! It’s National Dance Day in the US today but I think you should celebrate by having an Impromptu Dance Session wherever you are in the world! Have a fabulous weekend and here are a few fun links from around the web to enjoy with your morning mimosa…

  • Thank you SO MUCH for sharing my post Lauren! It’s truely made my day! I am so ecstatic right now and beyond flattered! I am so happy that you enjoyed the article :)

    That article on networking from C&C was so helpful to me as an introvert myself…and I think I have officially discovered my favourite cooking blog in Green Kitchen Stories! By the way, I LOVE that you post on the weekend (not many blogs do). Such a great way to start my Saturday mornings, thank you :) -Naomi

    And…have a wonderful and very happy birthday! :)

    • Awww that’s awesome, I loved your article and I know others will too!

      Yes, that post on networking was really great. I think a lot of us bloggers tend to be a little more introverted, so it’s nice to read something like that coming from someone so successful.

      Thank you for the birthday wishes, I had such a lovely weekend :) Talk soon!
