Sunday Links #1

Today I'll leave you with some cool finds from around the web:

- An interesting post from Psychology Today on What to do on a second or third date

- Spot on: The 10 stupidest things you can say to a depressed person from Thought Catalogue. 

- Some lovely ideas for today, courtesy of Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere (I have a huge girl crush on her!), I particularly like the wear a top-knot bun and bright lipstick one. Also, the leaves are just starting to fall, may be a good idea to get out on the park and pick up some pretty ones (if only I felt like going out...). 

- These chocolate avocado tartlets look so yummy! 

- This Pinterest board full of true stuff. 

- Who else is excited about J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie adaptation?

- Good for those suffering from insomnia, like my-self: how to disguise dark-circles. 

- How long has it been since you last hang out with your best friend? It's been ages for me (probably because we've got a whole lot of ocean between us). Lauren Conrad gives you 10 best-friend date ideas. I wonder if I could plan a fun weekend with my BFF for when we're both on the same country... SPA weekend would be so relaxing! 

- This TED talk is old but so amazing: the brains of people in love. Very interesting for the likes of me, who (too) easily fall in love. 

- And finally, 6 practical and powerful ways to overcome depression from Zen Habits. There isn't much from this post that I haven't heard before but it's never too much to repeat it constantly to ourselves: 

"Anti-rumination strategy is vital to breaking out of depression and other emotional ruts. (...) Whether it’s the jerk who cut you off in traffic or something a little closer to home, don’t give yourself the luxury of a negative thought."

This column was inspired by "Have a great weekend" from A Cup of Jo


  1. That pinterest board is full of happy inspiration, a reminder we all need. Thanks for sharing it! And those chocolate avocado tartlets look scrumptious! I must try to satisfy my sweet tooth :) I hope your weekend has been beautiful!


    1. Thanks for your comment! They do look amazing don't they? Yum!

  2. I remember reading that article from Thought Catalog and agreeing with most of the points (esp #7: just because there are ppl who have it worse doesn't mean that depression doesn't hurt. Those remarks just make me more depressed and guilty). Also, I can't wait for the FBWTFT movie---I hope we get to see Dumbledore when he is younger.


    1. Thanks so much for your comment! Your blog is lovely and you're gorgeous!! x

  3. i love this post! And you did Cup of Jo justice with it! I hope you keep it as a weekly routine :)
