I've been itching to share some links from around the web...
Sometimes I think I would just love to write about a post about little bits and bobs I've seen/read/engaged with online, including a thing or two I've bought recently that tends to fit into more of the 'miscellaneous' category.
Something I've found on the web that is all about the web... Emma Gannon's podcast is practically my latest obsession and I've been eagerly downloading all the episodes to listen to on my morning commute. I feel like it sets your day off right - hearing two people have a discussion about interesting topics. I have definitely been listening to them on my way home too, and I find the length of one podcast is generally perfect - all finished by the time I get to uni or work. I always felt a little bit funny with podcasts because I didn't know a good time to listen to them, but incorporating them into my commute definitely makes the time spent staring off into space on public transport just that extra bit more productive. Emma Gannon discusses a range of topics with her guests, from sex to books, and always incorporates the web into all of it, making it perfect for the modern woman.
I have been loving all of the fanfare that's come out of the release of Stranger Things. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend, but every one has been shouting about this lately and it's resulted in loads of Tumblr gift sets and text posts, and 'merchandise' if you like... If you have a good ol' search for Stranger Things on Society 6, you'll find an array of things, and this also goes for Etsy, etc. It's really a wonderful time. I picked up this print of Eleven and the guys on their bikes (and my sister did too!) a few weeks ago and have just got round to framing it and putting it in place on my bookshelf. Finally I have something to represent my obsession, and it has a bit of an 80s vibe which I've been loving lately.
Lately Lauren has been banging out some great posts about quite taboo topics, like this one on choosing not to drink. It's something I can definitely relate to, and makes me wonder if I could write some interesting blog posts on some taboo topics, not just another monthly favourites, if you know what I mean (even though I love those posts too!). It's nice to know there's people out there that think like you do or share some of the same feelings, when you can't necessarily see that in real life...
I've been getting into pins recently (and badges! If some would kindly make their way into my life along with my dream denim jacket...), so I was pretty chuffed when PJ (read: YouTuber - very good - go watch!) came out with some new merch. I just need some more pins to cuddle up with my two existing ones... perhaps this, this, this and this? Okay seriously I could do about 5 more of these links... Looking at what I've bookmarked in my 'Buy' tab, I'm thinking I may have to do a wish list post at some stage.
I watched this very recently and I just thought Arden was really quite articulate and said some great things! I love watching videos about taboo topics (I mean, I guess it's kind of taboo?) and I loved that Arden touched on topics like consent, marriage before sex, birth control, etc. I also love watching YouTubers like Hannah Witton and as a side note her new series The Hormone Diaries is really good.
Have a great week!
