Looking Back – July 2014

Many of the blogs I follow do a monthly round-up of things from around the internet and I thought I would do the same. I often find bits and pieces as I wander around online and I’m happy to share them here with you.

In a world full of auto-tuned, bubble-gum pop stars, this collaboration between Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga is a refreshing change.


This is a wonderful tribute to Torvill and Dean, performed by the people of their hometown of Nottingham.


A fun way to waste a few minutes.


This knitted animation is so well done. It really made me smile.


A few for the crafters:

How to Sew a Button and Repair a Hem
Who’d have thought you could make ‘yarn’ from recycled newspapers?
!0 Tips on Preventing, Catching and Fixing Mistakes for Knitters.

The What’s Underneath Project is a series of videos where people talk about their style, their body image, and their insecurities. What I found most interesting is how many people seemed to find it easier to talk about the things they didn’t like about their bodies than the things they love.

How to Create the Quiet is a post about the ways in which we can build a little space and quiet time into our busy lives.

Gala Darling has a list of 100 Ways to Show Yourself Love If You Hate Pink and Bubble Baths.

The Experiment. Why do we continue to do what we are doing if there is a different way out there?

And finally, these momentum and wind powered creatures wander around in a strangely mesmerising way.

So there you have it. My first round-up of internet bits and pieces. If you fancy finding out what some other bloggers have shared recently, check out Pink Mind Dreams (I’m biased with this one as it is my daughters blog), and Gala Darling , whose monthly carousel always has some great links.
