7 Days, 7 Posts is my weekly round up of some of the posts that I have enjoyed reading over the last week. They might be brand new posts, or older material that I’ve only just discovered. And they can be on any subject that I’ve found interesting, from blogging to beauty, travel to food.
Oh, I’ve had such a lovely week! Charlie got the all-clear from his post-op check and it’s been fantastic to get back to our normal routine of walks. The summer holidays are drawing closer, and I’ve just arranged some really exciting days out in the next few days – you’ll read all about them here on the blog, of course!
This week’s selection of posts covers a very mixed bag of subjects. There is a post about the importance of saying ‘no’, a delicious chicken pasta recipe and a post which is full of travel inspiration. As usual, I’ll be adding all of these posts to the ‘7 Days, 7 Posts’ Pinterest board.
The first pick for this week is a post by Michelle at Life Outside London (@) about the Life Changing Magic of Saying No. Now, personally I feel I need to start saying Yes to a few more things, but I totally understand the difficulty in saying no to something that you really don’t want to do. This post sums it up perfectly!
Next up is a post from Mags at Mags on the Move (@) called Confessions of an Entitled Millennial Traveller. Mags is discussing the way that millennials are being labelled as ‘entitled’ because they reject the life plans that their elders lived by. She points out that older generations have always picked at the perceived flaws of the younger generations. Times have changed since the days of a job for life and retiring at 65, and millennials are quite rightly making the most of all these new opportunities.
A travel post next, with 50 Places to Visit in North Wales by Beth at Life as Mum (@). I live about 30 minutes from the Welsh border and have done so for most of my life, so there are some familiar places on this list. It’s a great inspiration for places to visit as the summer holidays draw closer.
You might not want to read these next few posts when you’re feeling hungry! First there is a review of the Admiral Codrington in London, written by Rosana at Hot & Chilli (@). It looks like somewhere that I’d happily spend an evening, and the fillet of beef and shin wellington both look particularly yummy!
Next is a vegan and gluten-free recipe for Roasted Cauliflower Tacos from Liz at I Heart Vegetables (@). I love cauliflower, and this looks like a very delicious way to cook it. It’s a quick and simple recipe that I reckon will please vegans and meat-lovers alike!
The second recipe I’ve picked for this week is a Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake with Spinach and Tomatoes in Garlic Cream Sauce, posted by Julia at Julia’s Album (@). That title is a bit of a mouthful, but I love each and every single ingredient that’s listed there. The recipe has very clear instructions and step by step photos, which are definitely making me feel hungry!
And finally for this week, a post that got me really cross – not with the author but with the person who inspired it. Corinne at Skinnedcartree (@) asks the question ‘What gives you the right to judge my body?’ after receiving a rude, mean-spirited and uncalled-for comment on a photo. Corinne puts into words pretty much what I was thinking when I read the comment, but actually I think she’s a bit politer than I would have been!
