[SUNDAY STYLE] Links à la Mode

This week’s Sunday Style has been taken over by Links à la Mode after I was lucky enough to be picked! Check out the links below – all really great!


Far & Away

August is tomorrow. For many across the globe, it’s the month where you take a vacation. The last days of summer before school starts. The hottest and most miserable time in the city. The coolest and most fun time at the lake. Or best time to travel. Whether you are going far, of staying in town, you’ll want to do so in style. This week’s roundup has just everything you need, from travel tips to Berlin or Istanbul, and how to pack. The hottest half-trend of the summer, whether it be a half top know or a crop top. It’s all here.

Links à la Mode: July 31st

This week, I had the pleasure of editing Independent Fashion Bloggers’ Links à la Mode post. Picking just 20 of the submitted links was nearly impossible but I managed it and there are some really great posts for your Sunday reading:

We’re already halfway through the first month of 2013 but that doesn’t mean bloggers aren’t still in reflective mode: creating resolutions for the coming year and looking to up-coming trends, whilst also looking back on the trends of 2012. There’s also a reflective element in many of the posts this week over blogging and how that might change over the coming year, not just on a personal level but more generally too. There’s also a good dose of travel inspired posts this week for those who are trying to beat the January blues and jet off somewhere sunny. And if you’re not jetting off somewhere away from the cold, make sure to check out the great how to layer below:


This week Amanda, aka The Online Stylist, reminded us to treasure Life’s Small Pleasures. I think this is a lesson we can all take on board, to make time for the small things that make life that little bit better and more enjoyable. And then when I received the weekly newsletter from The Simply Luxurious Life on Friday, it pointed to a post originally published nearly two years entitled, Why Not Revel in Simple Pleasures? So this week, instead of the usual Sunday Links, I thought I’d share my small pleasures with you:

Life's Small Pleasures

  • A good meal;
  • Good friends;
  • Sharing a giggle with someone;
  • Fresh flowers;
  • A quite moment – or two – to read and unwind;
  • A pretty scene;
  • Breakfast;
  • The first cup of coffee of the day.

What small pleasures do you enjoy each day?

The holiday are literally just around the corner and there are only two sleeps to go! Is everyone else as excited as I am?!

If you’re planning some last minute shopping, I can only wish you good luck!

For me, the weekend before Christmas and Christmas Eve (tomorrow) are all about winding down and recharging. I’ll be watching as many Christmas films as possible: Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street, Elf, It’s a Wonderful Life, Love Actually. They’re all lined up for an entire day of viewing! Plus, the UK premiere of The Snowman and the Snowdog tomorrow.

Be sure to check back to the blog in the next few days for all of the latest on the post-Christmas sales and all of my top tips for getting the best bargains. Alternatively, be sure never to miss another post again and follow Sugar & Spice on any of these channels:

Reflecting on Fall

Edited by: Emily of Sugar & Spice
The cold weather seems to have well and truly graced our shores this week and as we all scramble to put together something that resembles style whilst also keeping us warm — we are all trying to remember what trends we should be rocking this season, after months in our summer wardrobes. Well, allow this week’s posts to inspire, educate and warm you.

into the glossClockwise from top left: Bling it On with Styloko and their guide to accessories that’ll jazz up your basics; Wendy Brandes wrote an eloquent rebuke to the horrible trolls who thought they had the right to comment on the appearance of female Olympic athletes rather than concentrate on their sporting achievements; Into The Gloss has a new “office boyfriend” and I’m jealous! The Glitter Guide’s 5 Things To Try This Weekend post is still my Friday favourite; Ann Colville – the lovely lady behind the fabulous beauty blog Cult of Pretty – has done it again, launching a new style blog, Lady, which is about when style grew up; and finally, Faye over at Girl Does Geek discussed the issue of diversity in fashion blogging and the difference between the US and the UK.
