This week’s recommended reading includes a tasty recipe, my favourite post on the death of blogging, kawaii stationery and things to do in Cornwall with kids. Get stuck in!
Chocolate Covered Katie is one of my go-tos for do-able recipes. I can’t be doing with recipes which have hard to source or expensive ingredients and steps that include chilling for hours or coming back to it the next day. Her recipes are my most pinned because they feel like someone like me could actually make them! This week I added pineapple bread to my Pinterest board and I’m looking forward to having a crack at it soon.
What I love about Gwennan is that, when it comes to blogging about a controversial topic, such as ‘the death of blogging‘, she takes a considered approach. She doesn’t just reel of yet another blogger’s opinion, she questions her readers, considers her research and provides a thoroughly informed argument. Go give it a read.
Super Cute Kawaii is my go-to for all things kawaii stationery and I loved the recent post on UK kawaii shopping on Etsy. I’ve certainly bookmarked a few shops.
I think most of us would say that the classics we were forced to read during our school years were a chore and/or underwhelming but a lot of them are worth revisiting. Rereading Wuthering Heights years later made a big difference and I’d like to revisit The Colour Purple at some point (I’ll be avoiding The Scarlet Letter though). There are also a few that I didn’t read as they were for different sets or year groups, such as Lord of the Flies. I was interested to see Saturday Nite Reader’s post on the books she plans on (re)reading in September and I think it’s a great idea.
The summer holidays might be coming to an end but it’s still worth checking out Chloe’s post on 50 things to do in Cornwall with kids. I’ve added a few things to my own summer bucket list as a result.
