Does Social Media Cloud Our Memories? on Girl Lost In The City – Emma’s take on ‘seeing life through an iPhone viewfinder’ is really interesting, it is true that I too have very clear memories from when I was younger, based on the feelings and actually memories I had then, rather than a photo. This year I’d like to take a trip and consciously not take any photos for social media. What do you guys think?

When Should You Work For Free? on Career Contessa – I’ve received a few emails recently, and had conversations with friends too, about career changes or exploring new paths – I think the new year tend to spark those thoughts? If you are looking to explore a passion, gain experience or simply dip your toe in to a new industry then its is good to know the parameters of when you can realistically work for free, and when you should be charging.

Save & Splurge Versions Of A Gorgeous Powder Blue Shirt from Zara & Tibi – YES to this colour and the cool cuts. A chic update on an evening outfit when worn with faux leather skinnies and tousled hair.

Healthy Eat-All-Week Recipes on My Domaine – I am all about immediacy and ease when it comes to eating at home. I hate that ‘OMG we have nothing in the cupboards’ realisation – especially as it tends to lead to poor/limited meal choices. These recipes all look crazy delicious, and bonus – you can stock up and have them to hand whenever you get peckish!

Design Psychology – 5 Ways To Create A More Meaningful Space on The Everygirl – Since I’ve been reading Marie Kondo’s book, and well just generally pondering our living (and my work) space, I’m all about creating environments which inspire and welcome. This Everygirl article is a great check list to measure your needs against.

Have a great weekend guys!

Love, Monica x
