Happy Blogger Link Love Friday!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely week and look forward to an exciting and fulfilling weekend πŸ˜‰

My week was awesome and zoomed by mostly, but yesterday I had some weird 24 hour flu or food poisoning; I’m not sure which. All I know is it was seriously awful and I couldn’t eat or do anything really. Thank God I feel much better today!! I plan on relaxing at home, finishing Spring Cleaning, whitening my teeth ( thanks for the idea Taylor @MyLuciteDreams! ) and I’ll be trying out some DIY recipes to naturally lighten my hair and condition it. Let me know in the comments if you want a post on the recipes and I’ll be happy to share! πŸ˜›

…And Onto the Link Love!

Caroline Hirons – BeautyMouth.com

If you don’t know who Caroline Hirons is, you MUST check out her amazing blog, Beauty Mouth! She is a brilliant, no nonsense gal who works as a facialist and gives incredible advice on how to treat skin with the right products and help you get your skin looking it’s best. I’ve been a huge fan since before I ever began blogging – I even did a post on her facial massage techniques which you can see here. She was recently on Pixiwoo’s Body Talk and recommended some amazing beauty products. Check it out – here!

Why I Gave Up Job Security to Freelance – XOJane

If you don’t follow XOJane & you’re a woman, you MUST! They post on a ton of relevant topics and nearly every writer has a charisma and flair about their pieces which are often hilarious, engaging and easy to relate to. I highly recommend this site as one to follow if you’re into off beat female ish humor and this article in particular is pretty relevant to us bloggers and freelances so do check it out! – here.

Hello Again – Atlantic-Pacific

I’m really loving bright colors and neon this Spring and Blair from Atlantic-Pacific is really brilliant at all things style and fashion related. She’s always posting up really interesting outfit picks for the day which I find really inspiring, especially because she does things that are chic, but also wearable. I think runway fashion is interesting, but mostly I just think of how fucking weird you’d look if you wore that on the streets. This girl knows how to style pieces that look like they could go on runway, but won’t make you look like an insane socialite cat lady if you wear it in the streets. Just saying.

April Favourites – Urban Umbrella

I really enjoyed this April Favourites post from Urban Umbrella! She does frequent fashion posts and occasional beauty ones, but this one has tons of great picks that I’ll be looking into for Spring/Summer so do check it out!

Top 10 Tips for Eating Clean from @shrinkingjeans #health #nutrition #cleaneating

Top 10 Tips for Eating Clean from @shrinkingjeans

The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans is a great “weight loss” and health blog, but I really love the invaluable tips they offer like these ones for how to eat clean! I am not a huge fan of “weight loss” blogs, but this one is more of a get healthy and fit kind and its very easy to relate to because it’s written by normal women instead of fashion or fitness models which, in my opinion, can feel very patronizing at times. This one is not. Definitely check them out!

Image from Star Models’ Campaign – The Skinny on Body Image – The Fitted Frame

I found this blog, The Fitted Frame, recently from an IFB roundup post and found it really intriguing and relevant for us women. In it, she discusses the affect that media images, especially where the fashion industry is concerned, have on us and our body image. She also talks about this recent campaign from Star Models which they’ve done in an attempt to discourage women from starving themselves to meet unrealistic standards.

Sarah Brown of Pai Skincare – 5 Desert Island Beauty Essentials

I really enjoyed this series of posts that the Beauty Shortlist has recently come out with! They’ve done a number of posts featuring prominent women in beauty where they’ve asked them to name their top beauty picks. My favorite is this one that features Sarah Brown of Pai Skincare’s Top Desert Island Beauty Essentials!

That’s It for this week’s list of links I’ve loved – What links are you all enjoying this week?

Please share them in the comments!

Otherwise, if you blog, please share one of your own posts in the comments from this week – I’d love to check it out!

Have a Lovely Weekend!
