Not Dressed As Lamb | Favourite Fun & Fabulous Links January 2016
In this month’s Favourite Fun and Fabulous Links I’m sharing some excellent post-Christmas non-fitness fitness tips, thoughts on knowing how much you’re worth, an incredible story of stolen blog content and a courageous self-esteem issues experiment on the streets of London.

Hope you like the links, and enjoy the rest of January – February will mean we’re that much nearer spring so hang on in there!

One of the best 2015 outfit round ups: Ashley’s classic/preppy style and her photography are both stunning.

A New Year’s resolution worth sticking to: “Know your worth and put it out there. Stop being scared to discuss money.” Well said, Vicki of Honest Mum.

What to do when you hate exercise – perfect for January.

White, white, everywhere, wallpaper collecting and tile hoarding – 5 insane (but true) things about bloggers’ homes.

I’ve never read such practical and hilarious tips for how to use your camera remote control thanks to Melanie.

47 things you’ll only know if you’ve worked in retail over Christmas (I did for many years and these are ALL true).

Comedian Celeste Barber spoofs the picture-perfect lives of the rich and famous with an Instagram project. #hilarious

Want to start a blog and don’t know where to begin? This course is run by Alice who won UK Blog Award 2014 for Best Digital & Technology Blog – and is a lovely person IRL.

Why I bought myself a diamond ring by Louise (and why not I say)!

“ ‘Well, say goodbye to your old body.  Because it’s ALL over after you have a child.’ And at that very moment – I was determined to prove her wrong.” Marion shares some inspirational post-baby body pictures and stories.

The incredulous story of how a German blog is hijacking and reposting all of Suzanne’s content – then they also replicated her post where she calls them out on it. One Darwin Award please.

Finally, an amazing video – Girl undresses in public for courageous cause:

    Thank you SO much for the link back! I had so much fun with that post, and have to admit, I'm guilty of everything on the list!

      Hehe so the post was written about your personal experience, then Sarah – not by observing other bloggers…! Makes it even funnier (or more "tongue in cheek" I should say)!! And you are most welcome, glad to include it x

    So touched to feature here darling, I hope more women are inspired to talk money! Much love, keep shining on xx

      It was SUCH a good read, Vicki – thank you for starting the conversation on that one!!

    Great selection! I loved Melanie's post too – she is brilliant!

    • 31 January 2016 / 6:44 pm

      She is, isn't she Lally?! Glad you liked them x

    I'm glad you found my camera remote control instructions so informative! Hahaha! Thanks so much for including me among all these amazing women. I must catch up. There is a special horrible place for blog content thieves.

    • 31 January 2016 / 6:44 pm

      It was fantastic, Melanie – such an entertaining read!! And yes, I can think of a few special places for them I must admit…!

    The Darwin Award to those bastards who steal Suzanne's blog! I really enjoyed this round-up and found some new blogs – thanks, C! xox


    • 31 January 2016 / 6:43 pm

      My pleasure, Patti – I'm sure karma will get them…!!!!

  6. 27 January 2016 / 5:43 pm

    Melanie's post is brilliant!

    I also loved Sarah's post about blogger's homes, although I'm not guilty of any of it. I'm still trying to figure out how they use the tiles and wallpaper unless they are food bloggers.

    Thanks for the shout-out about the blog content stealing…they're still doing this btw. : ( I'm trying not to let it bother me.

      My pleasure to feature you, Suzanne – though I've had the same this week with a group of bloggers: A Chinese site was regurgitating our blog posts so we (well, they – it happened while I was in London for a couple of days) lambasted the site, their Facebook page and the host of their website. It worked – the whole site and FB page have been shut down now, so it was a fantastic blogger victory!!

      Hopefully you'll get yours sorted still – how about contacting the company that hosts their site…? x

    Catherine I am so honored you featured my round-up! I can't tell you what it means to have the support you give — your blog inspired me to start my own and always challenges me to try out new looks, new content, and new shooting techniques. It's a dream come true having you read my blog!

    From the bottom of my Not Dressed As A Lamb heart, thank you!

      Oh wow Ashley – you absolute love!!! Here's me saying how fab you are (and being a little bit envious at how faaaaaaabulous you always look) and you say that about me… Can't thank you enough!!!! xoxo

    Such a great list of links! I loved Sarah's post about bloggers' homes. I don't fit the bill, but that's why my outfit posting diminishes as the temperatures drop and I have been slow to get on the video bandwagon. I can add one – a random white IKEA LACK table that moves around the home; it's quite lovely for Instagram and product shots!

    • 31 January 2016 / 6:38 pm

      Oh what would us bloggers do without Ikea, Alison…?!! Hehe thank you sweetie – glad you liked the links! x
