We’re now officially in the depths of Autumn, and while my body may want to start slowing down I’m still as busy as ever. I always like to make time to read and discover new things whenever possible – here’s a summary of what’s taken my interest [...]

Loves, Likes, Bits & Bobs – Back to school

The days are getting shorter and the air is getting cooler… It can only mean one thing: Autumn is upon us. Schools are back, Freshers’ Week is over (for most!) and days spent in classrooms, lecture halls and the library are the norm again. I always enjoyed this [...]

1. A creative take on Roast Chicken (via @designsponge). A delicious recipe is one thing, but a recipe that goes in hand-in-hand with an adorable illustration (like this cute chicken above) brings a sense of joy to cooking. Looking forward to trying out this Lemon Basil [...]

When I first started my blog, I spent a lot of time (and a lot of trial and error) teaching myself bits and pieces of coding. Not an easy task, and very time consuming! It’s great to see initiatives popping up here and there on the web encouraging women to sharpen their tech skills. This Skillcrush course is designed to empower women by teaching them how to code, and build up their own websites. By providing a collaborative environment without the jargon – the class seems like a super helpful approach to get started in the (often confusing!) tech/coding/online realm.

The more places I visit the more I realise that street harassment is a real issue. Brooklyn-based artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh has taken the bold and courageous step to tackle street harassment through her artwork. Sick and tired of being catcalled on the street, she decided to express her frustrations (and those of women all over the world) via her art. Check out her sketches and messages on her blog.

Always good to stumble across something online that discusses the pursuit of happiness! Have you come across the NPR (National Public Radio)’s TED Radio Hour yet? The show (you can listen to it online) features a whole bunch of inspiring interviews and discussions, based on the awesome TED talks. I love this particular talk – The Pursuit of Happiness. The three main guests are Malcolm Gladwell (author of ‘Blink’, a fabulous book), author Kathyrn Schulz and psychologist Barry Schwartz – so you know you’re in good hands. If you’re pressed for time and can’t listen to the whole show, you can read over the transcripts too (look for the ‘full story’ links).
