♥ A slightly older link, but the best news evs for Louisa at Duck in a Dress. Congratulations!

♥ Terri-Jane is telling ‘should’ to do one, and I’m on board.

♥ Elise took a tour of Glasgow Central Station, and it’s left me wanting to do something similar.

♥ Elizabeth from Margot and Barbara is one of my favourite bloggers, and her post about her allotment supper is one of the reasons why.

♥ Janet wrote very eloquently about the ways you can protest if the general election didn’t go the way you were hoping.

♥ Charlotte is learning a new language, and making me want to as well! (This link is a bit older, because I’m way behind with my blog reading.)

♥ Jasmin provided seven handy tools to help improve your blog.

♥ Rachael posted about her London cross stitch, and as a result my finger is hovering over the buy button on the New York equivalent!

The rest of the web

♥ This video of a (albeit computer-generated) skeleton doing yoga reminds me how amazing our bodies are!

♥ Everything about the ocean terrifies me, but I’m trying to force myself to look at more photos and watch more documentaries about it, so I can be less scared. These photos of underwater creatures, by Jorge Cervera Hauser, are incredible, if daunting

♥ Holly nominated me for a blog award – something that never fails to make me smile! Thanks Holly!

 Sarah’s post about investing in herself has got me thinking, and I have realised that I need to start with the small changes too.

♥ Though not a vegetarian myself, I do have a professional interest in the world of vegans and vegetarians, so I did enjoy reading Charlotte’s post about why she is mostly meat-free.

♥ Thanks to Rachael’s post about creating cross-stitch versions of her family, I now want to cross-stitch everyone I know

The rest of the web

♥ I went to university with a lot of people who would have been a lot more interested in a Maths degree if their lecturer had looked like this.

♥ I’m yet to complete my watching of Parks and Recreation, but this is still an awesome article. Leslie Knope is the actual best, y’all.

♥ There’s still time to watch one of the best children’s films ever made on iPlayer (until first thing in the morning on 5th April): The Amazing Mr Blunden *is* amazing.

♥ Janet celebrated International Women’s Day by writing eloquently and passionately (as always) about the problem of solidarity.

Jamie asked an interesting question about the role of the author when it comes to something like slut-shaming – is it their role to condemn it?

♥ Bee wrote a note about eating disorders, with wonderfully brave words from two people who are affected in different ways.

♥ Charlotte’s recent links roundup called me out on the lack of diversity in my reading. I’ll be writing a post about it soon, and having a look to see just how many non-white authors I’ve read lately (it’s not many, shamefully).

The rest of the web

♥ You can now play Cards Against Humanity online!

♥ This week’s Colossal link – scanning household objects to make incredible space scenes

♥ I think everyone could do with using their phone a little less

♥ There’s one less thing wrong with the world, as Facebook remove ‘feeling fat’ from their list of ‘feelings’. 

♥ Andrew Scott went into Gay’s the Word and sat behind the till. Be still my beating heart.
