Sharing Saturday - Geeky Girl Bloggers

In honour of International Women’s day this week I wanted to bring attention to a group of women who deserve recognition; geek girl bloggers! The celebration of women comes with messages of inequality, a reminder of why feminism is needed and the gender gap between men and women. One I am keenly aware of is that in the geek world.

Sharing Saturday - tried and tested recipes

One of the things I love about Pinterest is the wide array of yummy recipes people pin. I have had a recipe board for yonks, and recently have started adding Atkins/Keto diet recipes to a diet recipe board too.

This product is not a BIG part of that routine (as you can see from the very used palette!). IRead More →

Sharing Saturday: Christmas resources

December has firmly started and Christmas is on the way, which means it sounds like a good time to share some christmas graphic design resources. You can use these to spruce up your blog or website for a festive feel, or to create graphics for social media or as gifts. As usual I’m nabbing them from Deviant Art, enjoy!   Disclaimer: The work here is displayed only out of admiration and credit is given for every image (I use the ’embed’ code directly from dA).

Sharing Saturday: Online advent calendars

  Yep, another advent calendar sharing saturday. The last one I promise and probably the most exciting one because I’m introducing you into the world of online advent calendar competitions – which are free to enter! I enter them every year and for the past couple of years have won several prizes. They’re great fun, a tad bit addictive and easy to take part in. There’s so many that I’m not going to list them, I’m just going to explain the types of competitions and then give you some sites where fabulous people have listed all the advent competitions they find.   Type of AdventRead More →
