Sunday Selections

July 5, 2015

You know how last week I mentioned that the European heatwave was heading Berlin’s way? Well, it has well and truly arrived. Berliners have been sweltering this weekend. Temperatures have pushed into the high thirties and have combined with a heavy humidity that has left us all sticky and sleepy. In Australia in the middle of summer, I’d never feel uncomfortable, because I’d just switch the air conditioning on. But in Germany, the vast majority of apartments, bars, restaurants and public transport do not have cooling systems! Because it’s just as hot inside as outside, I’ve spent much of the weekend out and about, sipping on drinks by the Spree and picnicking in the shady park trying to keep cool. Oh, and I attended a fab Street Art tour and workshop too. It was very hot but lots of fun. Keep your eyes on Instagram this week for some pics!

Here are this week’s favourite links:

WATCH: How spectacular does Banff look in winter? This video is keeping me cool just watching it!

READ: The search for perfection can create a crushing anxiety in a lot of people, myself included. I love this post on why searching for perfection is overrated and why we should all just be silly instead.

EAT: Can someone please deliver one of these to me now? The perfect antidote to these sweltering temperatures.

MAKE: Here’s your complete guide to how to capture fun lettering made by sparklers on camera.

BUY: I ordered this cute little thing from Asos last week and it arrived just in time for this weekend’s hot weather! It kept me a little cooler today.

GO: Days like these leave me craving an escape to the ocean and this post brings back some beautiful memories from my trip here this time two years ago.

Stay cool kids! x
