Good good links #164


Some weeks compiling these posts is harder because I either haven’t read enough posts I felt ‘compelled’ to share by Saturday night* or haven’t been reading much online at all. This week the latter was the case but thanks to whichever magic I happened upon plenty of great posts on Friday and today [rainy weather …]. Actually, there were too many posts. Well, too many being a relative term but as I personally prefer shorter link collections I decided to save some of the posts found this week for the next. Gives the ones shared in each post more time to shine, you know?  Maybe that’s just me but I feel overwhelmed and am left with at least half a dozen new tabs opened when I come across those super huge link-ups. Granted, today’s already is almost too long in my opinion but I couldn’t not share these. I make myself laugh with my logic here so it’s best I’ll leave the links here for now and wish you a

Happy Sunday!

    That Pumpkin Spice latte one looks interesting, and I loved Georgie’s comprehensive guide to small talk. It was really comprehensive and so encouraging that small talk can definitely be a gateway for deeper friendships.
