Friday Links: The Little Things

Here are my top links for the week!

I’ve posted this one before, but it still makes me happy! A customizable noise generator, how sweet is that?

Check it out: Noisli

Next is just a goofy animal that made me smile. I told you, these links are all about the little things, like goofy animals!

Check it out: Spirit Animal

As an overly romantic female, it would be a shameful lie to say that I’m not a huge fan of Michael Buble. And on my drive home from work the other night, I heard a duet that pretty much touched my soul.

Check it out: Something Stupid

I’m a total baby when it comes to scary things, but my imagination demands to be scared once in a while since it it BRILLIANT for one’s writing. You can’t only expose yourself to happy, sunshiney things if you want to improve your creativity. You must run the gamut. Who else is excited and terrified for this new show?

Check it out: Freak Show

So it’s a bit behind the times, but I finally got around to watching Emma Watson’s speech on Feminism and I can’t rave about it enough. I think it’s admirable and inspiring. Bravo!

Check it out: HeForShe

And finally, for celebrating the little things….these instagram accounts.

Check them out: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, and Seven

Have a great Weekend!

Xx,

Lauren

Friday Links – Wanderlust Edition

Alright, it’s that time of the week. What sites have me trolling around the internet this week? Right this way, good sir!

Exhibit A: The Wild Yonder Project

I love to try out new platforms and design new sites. The idea for this project was born over the summer, likely over a glass of cab sav on the back patio. My sis and I have numerous illustrations and ideas all set to roll out into a T-shirt line, possibly as soon as the end of the year. Stay tuned, exciting things are in store! This site is just a bit of an experiment, a developing platform celebrating the spirit of adventure and soon to be home to the precious creations of a dynamic duo.

Exhibit B: Roadtrippers

If you’re planning on visiting the states, or you’re living here and just need ideas of things to do, THIS is the site for you. Off-the-beaten-path galore! What’s the weirdest thing to do in x, y, or z? Find it all consolidated on to one useful and rather fetching webpage. I had the good fortune of running into one of the photographers for this website when I was training in Cincinnati. He specializes in time-lapse, and does some stunning work. Check him out here: Joel Schat

Exhibit C: I’m So Francy

The only thing I love MORE than a travel blog, is a travel blog written by someone I know. How exciting??! To play along at home, when you know the person who’s out having adventures?? It’s a beautiful thing. This is the journal of my high school friend, Emily. She is teaching English to high school students (the brave soul). Check out her adventures and be jealous of all the delicious looking food she gets to eat!

Exhibit D: Ken Kaminesky

This is a beautiful travel photography blog. The images that Ken creates are intricately composed, and make me restless for travel.

Exhibit E: European Vacations

So my current obsession is with planning a New Years trip to the UK and France. This site is pretty helpful for ideas, and the flight and hotel combos are appealing. I just need to decide whether or not to grunge it up in hostels and wander blind with the spirit of adventure as a guide or to actually plan and make the trip less spontaneous.

 

That’s all for now. If you have a link that you think I might enjoy, go ahead and send it my way.

Xx,

Lauren
