Loops & Links

It's time once again to share these links that have been bookmarked for so long. Most of these clickables I've got from Facebook (thank heavens for the Save Link feature), I usually flag a whole lot of links every time I browse my News Feed to be saved for future reading. But I realize now that I kinda suck at that, looking at how many links I've managed to save and forget about altogether. Haha.

Anyway, I hope you find these links as useful and informative as I did!

1. 15 best films about failed love. Because falling and staying in love requires conscious effort and will not always be a walk in the park, and sometimes, it was never meant to last. I've seen more than half of these movies, a lot of them are my favorites: The Lobster, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Blue is the Warmest Color and the Wong Kar Wai ones. As Frou Frou's song goes: So let go. Jump in. Oh well, what are you waiting for? It's alright 'cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

2. Grilled Strawberry Cheesecake Sandwich recipe. I don't like strawberries (the actual fruit) because I think they're just to sour to enjoy (but I like when it's in the form of ice cream, dips, yogurt, the works) but this sandwich just looks too damn good, I wanna make one right now.

3. The Ultimate Guide to Font Pairing. So happy to stumbled upon this article because putting fonts on blog post headers are the death of me sometimes! I always wanted that sleek, simple font but I end up putting too tacky and distracting ones. If you're running your own blog too, this would be of big help design-wise!

4. 10 Things You Can Learn From Your Future Self. I know this isn't new and you've probably read a thousand articles like this, but I've been having realizations lately and it's nice to be reminded once in a while of how things really do get better eventually and that you'll find your place in this world. Hey, if things are at a shitstorm right now, it will pass and everything will work out! I promise you that!

5. DIY Light Box for those beautiful photos!

6. Everything You Need to Know about Beyonce's Lemonade. Last weekend, Beyonce shocked everyone and dropped her latest full length album, Lemonade, along with a short film, which totally reminded me of Kanye's Runaway back in 2010. Fortunately for me, I was able to watch the hour-long film even though I'm not on Tidal, and OMG how intense that movie was! I was raw and in your face that makes you feel hurt, sad, vengeful, scared and at peace. It was a smorgasbord of beautiful visuals and off the roof emotions!

7. If you're an Android user, you might find this link helpful if (God forbid) you lost your phone. I've always heard and saw on friends that are Apple users how they track their lost phones and even locking it so it would be no use to the thieves but never knew anything to that effect for us Android users. 

8. Because Iceland will always be that place I yearn to set foot on everyday.

"I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is. Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart. You will only ever have two choices: love or fear. So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. Choose love, and don't ever let fear turn you against your playful heart."
