My Journey

Link Love – My Favorite Things – Week Five

I found this cool idea about ‘link love’ on several websites I like to read on daily basis. People are sharing their favorite things they found online that week. I love that! I found so many cool blogs and interesting websites by reading other bloggers’ ‘link love’.

I decided to also do something similar. I will share all the cool things I stumbled upon recently. Hope you will like my picks and find something cool for you.

Link Love – My Favorite Things

1. Miss Malie JewelryHandmade jewelry, with a touch of pixy dust

Don’t you agree that jewelry is an amazing gift for Christmas? I found this beautiful handmade jewelry on Etsy – and I was so amazed! The shop owner is lovely Marie-Lise from Belgium and she sells earrings, ear studs, rings and pendants. Every pair is unique, so you can be sure that no one will have the same earrings like you do! They are hand painted and perfect for every occasion, even for some classy gatherings or work holiday parties you have to go to this year! And if you don’t know what to gift this Christmas to your female friends or coworkers – definitely check out Marie-Lise’s Etsy shop!

2. BookCoach101 – Gifts For Authors & Tutorials That Sell More Books

how to turn your blog into a book

I’ve been thinking about writing an e-book for such a long time, but for some reason I never found a true inspiration to start. So when I found this cool Etsy store, I was really happy. So many tutorials for a cheap price, that can help me move in a right way when it comes to my e-book. Writers and authors (and wannabe writers like me) can create and sell more books with these easy to follow digital tutorials, such as ‘7 Simple Steps For Turning Your Blog Into a Book’ or ‘The Book Coach 101 Definitive Guide To Choosing The Right Publishin Option For Your Book’. So, if you are planning to expand your writing career beyond your blog, this is definitely an Etsy store you should visit!

3. Political Suicide! — The Card Game

My husband loves card games and board games, so when I was looking on Etsy for a perfect gift for him for our anniversary in September, I was delighted to find this one. It’s fun and unique. Play as Bush, Nixon, Trump or Clinton in the card game where everyone’s been a bad boy. Race to cover up your own crimes, while forcing the opposition to reveal theirs.

4. Manofatto Etsy Shop

So, now when you know where to find great and unique gifts for your husband, it’s time to pick something perfect for you. You deserved it, trust me. These are British designed Italian full grain leather accessories – amazing, isn’t it? I can’t even pick my favorite bag – the colors are so beautiful. These beautiful bags can be used in both ways, cross body or a hand clutch. Which one is your favorite? Manofatto uses a high grade, full-grain beautiful Italian leather. As a natural product it may feature some fine markings, but these don’t detract from the design, they add to its unique beauty. So lovely!

5. Quinns Homemade Crafts

I know it seems like I am obsessed with Etsy shop, but I can’t help it. I love having unique and homemade things in my home. This great shop offers hand painted reclaimed wood signs and homemade candles. Prices are very reasonable and I am sure everyone will find something they like. My favorite is definitely Family sign – I know it will look great in my hallway. It can also be a great house warming or a holiday gift. Check out the shop and let me know what do you like the most.

7. 100 Things To Do To Change Your Life In 30 Days

8. Neil Gaiman on Why We Read and What Books Do for the Human Experience

Do you read Brain Pickings? It’s my favorite website – it always has great and insightful articles. This one talks about books and I believe every parent should read this.

One of the quotes I liked:

I don’t think there is such a thing as a bad book for children. Every now and again it becomes fashionable among some adults to point at a subset of children’s books, a genre, perhaps, or an author, and to declare them bad books, books that children should be stopped from reading. I’ve seen it happen over and over; Enid Blyton was declared a bad author, so was R. L. Stine, so were dozens of others. Comics have been decried as fostering illiteracy.

9. The Best Fondation For Sensitive Skin

A few years ago, my beauty routine included just washing my face, so I was quite clueless about beauty tips and tricks. That is when I started following beauty blogs and learn so much! Kaylee Beauty is one of the best – I love the piece about best fondation for sensitive skin because it is so detailed. After reading this article, you just can’t get it wrong!

Share with me cool things you wrote this week!
