Weekend Links

Weekend Links and a thigh gap This week we learned about the thigh gap. I have one because I am bow-legged (yei me)! It is due to my bow legged-ness that I am a bit scared of doing certain exercises (like some yoga poses) for fear of cracking my knees (bit paranoid maybe?).


—- On to our Weekend Links! —-

Let’s begin this weekend with a much deserved Ruby Citrus Mojito!

I’d love to go to the Much Loved portrait exhibition of beloved teddies. So much love in each photograph.

Because one can never have one too many fonts, here are 100 free fonts for you!

For the DIY fans: let’s make this shabby chic wind chime!

If you have to do one thing, do this everyday.

Currently reading: Black City. Finally got my hands on a copy.

Wish List: for my walls, for my boys, and the hubs.

In case you are like me, here are a few ideas to help you drink more water.

If you take photos with your iPhone you must get TimerCam!

The very first selfie, circa 1900.

    Thanks for all the helpful links. I am going to check out the ones on water and free fonts. My hubby recently upgraded our PC so all my fonts are gone!

      Oh no! I had that happen to me too a few times, so enjoy getting new fonts :)

    Thank you for your fun link up! I have never heard of Timer Cam before but it sounds like something I would use!

    What a great idea to do a link up. Different ways to drink more water is definitely welcome!!

  27. January 24, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    Drinking more water is on my list for health reasons. Love to add a drop of citrus essential oils once a day to help me drink more.

  28. January 24, 2014 at 4:03 pm

    The selfie is so funny!

  29. January 24, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    So funny. Made my Friday :)

  30. January 24, 2014 at 5:40 pm

    I’ve seen this in your post already, and i’ve search right away about this kind of trend.

  31. January 24, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    yay for free fonts! especially because i’ll never ever have the thigh gap

  32. January 24, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    Thanks for sharing the links! I’ve never heard of the term thigh gap before. I learned something!

  33. January 24, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    I used to have thigh gap (when I was still single and skinny) now, they’re gone! thanks to two little boys and thigh fats! hehehe. I wanna check TimerCam and the free fonts!

  34. January 24, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    I would love to make the shabby wind chime!

  35. January 24, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    Definitely no thigh gap here. But it is a worrysome trend and I really dislike the photoshopping in the magazines. Thank you for the links!

  36. January 24, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    I like the list of your links and I checked out the ideas to help you drink more water. I usually order water first when I go in a restaurant but I also order a slice of lemon so I can squeeze lemon into my water to add flavor

  37. January 24, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    Love the selfie. I think you’ll be fine with the yoga poses even though you are bow legged.

  38. January 24, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    Too funny! I wish I had a thigh gap! No such luck!

  39. January 24, 2014 at 9:30 pm

    My daughter and her friends always talk about the “thigh gap” like it is something to aspire to. So, perhaps you should just embrace it. :)

    Oh, and I snapped my knee. It wasn’t good. You are right to be paranoid. ;)

  40. January 24, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    I am going to download that timer cam. That would be so helpful when taking selfies!

  41. January 25, 2014 at 9:09 pm

    I love this round up… It’s easier to see if I missed reading any of your post.

  42. January 27, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    still haven’t learned the sselfie thing
