Long time no link round-up. Here are some things that piqued my interest this past month.
- Nightly rituals to help with anxiety
Here is my OOTD (from Friday actually, I just didn’t have time to post it then). I wore an ankle-length black gown that has a lace detailing on the top to the academic dinner party of the English student organization. It was the 44th anniversary of the organization and the dress code was black tie. I paired the dress with black hunky heels and a black cardigan with a pearl collar.
The party was really lovely: we had coconut soup for starters, salmon as main course, and chocolate cake as dessert. There was lots of singing and a fun speech from one of our professors (also, teacher of the year!). This is probably my last academic dinner party before I graduate with my MA so I was super happy to attend.
I also wanted to add a few links here since I haven’t done a link round-up in a while. This is a short one, I’ll make a proper one later during the spring :)
My job hunt journal made its way to our English students’ webzine Better Than Sliced Bread: A Humanist’s Search for a Job
I also wrote a piece for Her Campus Helsinki about Emma Watson’s feminist book club (my other articles for HC Helsinki can be found here)
We filmed finally an introduction video for Her Campus Helsinki!
This article on xoVain about the effects of accutane was really informative (especially since my acne is worse than it’s ever been – hence the slightly cakey and flakey makeup on the ootd photos – and I have a dermatologist appointment for next month to talk about the possibility of Roaccutane)
You can be productive on your couch? Well, that’s good to know (she types while laying in bed on a Monday afternoon).
I know I haven’t done a link round-up in a while so here it goes:
