Sunday Selections

December 14, 2014

Gosh, this weekend has flown by in a blink of an eye. I do concede that nursing a sore head on Saturday after, shall we say, a fairly merry work Christmas party the night before may partly account for the speed in which it has passed. I was left with grey and gloomy Sunday, which was spent walking, sipping coffee and chatting about Christmas and upcoming travel plans with my love and altogether counting my blessings for all of life’s gifts. Oh, and there’s five days left of work before Christmas break begins and that’s just swell.

Winter trees in Berlin, Christmas
Here are this week’s favourite links:

WATCH: Ever wondered how many aircraft are in the air at any one time? This video displays world air traffic over a 24 hour period, condensed into two minutes of footage. Europe, you’re one busy continent!

READ: Feeling as though you’re chasing your tail every minute of the day? I know I do. Here are 10 ways to de-stress your day, hour by hour.

EAT: Over the past twelve days, Alana from Fix Feast Flair has been posting ’12 days of cookies’, with each new recipe getting better and better. My favourite? These gingerbread bear macarons. They’re almost too cute to eat. Almost.

MAKE: Christmas is creeping closer and closer — is your tree decked out yet? These colourful DIY paper ball ornaments will give it the perfect finishing touch.

BUY: 2014 has almost come to an end and it’s time to start looking toward the next year. First order of business: get sorted with a new planner for 2015. The daily greatness journal is my pick.

GO: Pacific Northwest photographer, Griffin Lamb’s stunning landscapes really make me want to get out of the city and explore the wild some more. How about you?

Hoping that your week is as merry as can be.
