Link Round-Up: February -18

Long time no link round-up. Here are some things that piqued my interest this past month.

Party OOTD + March Link Round-Up

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:

An article on the pressure of having it all on Her Campus Helsinki.

Listen to the sounds of Hogwarts – I know I do when I’m studying ;)

This short movie featuring Mary Kate Wiles (from the Lizzie Bennet Diaries) is so adorable!

The Readerly Geek listed a while back the places books have made her want to visit and I can definitely agree on several of them!

Bookworms in Dresses had a fun list a while back with favorite authors.

Here’s a brilliant 30-Day Yoga Challenge playlist!

And finally tips on optimizing your resume from Levo League :)

Oh, and before you go, here – have a kitty!

Addictive Blogs

I’ve been into the blogging world this year but I haven’t yet had many chances to showcase the blogs I love to read, so I decided to do a little collection of the blogs I am addicted to like :)

The College Prepster: Carly’s blog was probably the first one I really started following on a daily basis. I love the mixture of preppy and ambitious, school-related and fun-loving!

xoVain: One of the few strictly beauty-related blogs I follow; I love the quirkiness of the blog.

The Beauty Department: another beauty blog – their how-to’s are so easy to follow!

Into the Gloss: a lovely mix of urban, beauty, celebs, and life

Sweet Lemon Mag: preppy and fabulous!

Smilingrid: My girl Ingrid is amazing and she’s so geeky – I love it! We both like Harry Potter and Doctor Who. Instant blogger besties.

October June: Another Harry Potter fan with a great mix of all sorts of lifestyle posts.

Allisonleighann: krhm….another Harry Potter fan :D You can clearly see that I favor geeky girls :P

FeliciaDay.com: the hilarious actress Felicia Day has a blog that I follow a lot – it’s geeky, quirky and smart!

A Beautiful Mess: a brilliant source for DIYs and photography tips!

Nerdjoy!: everything geeky ever! Steph is a fan of Game of Thrones – another one of my favorite fandoms – so I had to include her in this list :)

Scathingly Brilliant: I just love this girl’s style – just look at all those pastels!!


Link Round-Up: May -14

Here is this month’s link round-up with some funny and some useful things I’m liking right now:

Loving the Cat versus Human comics!

I’m constantly struggling with my hair as I’m growing it out from a super short pixie and I love these ways of hiding the awkwardness with little braids!

I’ve been listening to tons of Beatles lately because I just started an intensive course on them :) It’s been so much fun!

Little self-promotion here: check out BTSB and Her Campus Helsinki if you haven’t already!

The life of a fangirl is difficult…
