Weekly Favourites 1: Favourite vlogs and reads for the week

img_20161019_085445

Okay so the tree has nothing to do with the posts, but it’s so pretty that I wanted to share the photograph with you guys.

Hello, everyone! I hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend–or whatever’s left of it! If you’re from the other side of the world–hope you’re all having a great Sunday!

Today was a lazy Sunday in some respects, but also slightly a busy one too–if that’s making sense! I woke up with a cold, and lack of sleep (I keep waking up) prevented me from going to church today. So–sorry God. When I felt a little better, I baked cookies–no piccies yet, but I’ll talk about it in a separate post!

From this day on, I’ll be starting this series (inspired by the bloggers I follow) where I’ll make a list of my five favourite blog entries or YouTube videos for the week. Because there’s nothing better than sharing something that’s really awesome, with the hope that the people you share it to would like it just as you did.

AUSTRALIA, PART FOUR || THE MICHALAKS

Hands down, they’re my favourite YouTube family. They’re as real as you can get, and I love the music and the editing! If you haven’t subscribed to their channel, please do–it’s totally worth your Sunday! I look forward to these videos as much as I look forward to Facetime sessions with my older sister!

OUR WEDDING: SOMETHING NEW || ON SERPENTINE SHORES

I discovered Alex Holyer’s blog by accident months ago, and I was hooked. I was drawn by the way she weaves her words in her entries. I loved how she values the same things as I do–family, nature, the beautiful, simple things that are–in legal parlance, “incapable of pecuniary estimation”. This post chronicles her wedding preparations. There’s a related post in the same blog that you should read too! :)

THE VEGETARIAN || ACCORDING TO HER

Deanne is one of my dearest friends from college (uni to you Brits). I think that one of the things that made us friends is that we share a love of reading and expressing our thoughts by writing it down. Deanne is a writer, producer, and advertising practitioner and also a very hands-on mum. This entry is a book review of The Vegetarian, written by a South Korean writer. This book won a Man Booker Prize award.

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY #5|| MUTED MORNINGS

Mimmi’s Muted Mornings is another one of these blogs I’ve discovered by accident. She is part of that group who are behind the Wonderful Wednesdays series I have read about in some blogs lately. The Wonderful Wednesdays series is a list of things that made you happy–or things that you are grateful for during the earlier part of the week. I think this is a really good initiative, as we are all living in an increasingly negative world.

HOW TO BE A “FIT”|| ACE GAPUZ/MANILA TIMES

I knew the writer of this article since she was a little girl. She is the cousin of a friend from church and I’ve seen her grow. This article is months old, but I “rediscovered” it because I saw it on a friend’s Facebook post. Ace is an entrepreneur and a financial literacy advocate.
