Weekend Links v.14

If you know a cat that needs a little exercise *cough cough* check out this take on a cat-sized hamster wheel! The kickstarter is funded well beyond it's target, so I suspect Maggie isn't the only kitty with a generous girth.

A fascinating look at the culture of Eskimos in the photo series developed over 20 years.

My list of things that I'd like to see and do in Japan in November is growing to an unmanageable length! First, I found a cafe that serves Pikachu burgers. Second, Jacquie turned me on to High Tea at the Park Hyatt. I think the High Tea edges up the list, especially since I can sneak a drink in the New York Bar afterwards.

Mill Street Vintage stocks the most incredible collection of 50's dresses!

Any creators out there? Bloggers? Born hatin': Why some people dislike everything.

What a great collection of sweet and unique cards + stationary.

Ten ways travel changed my life forever.

Bethany has provided a really thorough look at growing your Pinterest following.

These crispy autumn veg burgers with apple cider slaw are delish!

26 time management hacks I wish I'd known at 20.

Found #104

If I wore these cicada wing earrings, I'd probably freak out every time the wing brushed on my neck, and cause a huge spectacle. But it would probably be worth it because they are beautiful and the general public could have a good giggle at me too...

It's been a really long time since I featured something from Petit Mort, and they are still coming up with killer jewellery! I love the tangled crochet chains that they create around the stones.

Oh foxes. So naughty, so sly and so cute (unless they're in The Mighty Boosh, in which case they are the most terrifying thing, ever) As the article states, they are one of the most charismatic creatures and photographer Roeselien Raimond has captured them in their full glory.

Of A Kind have done it again! I rarely see something on their site that I dislike. These earrings are a classic OAK selection. Simple, minimal, but not boring!

Spotted on Eat Drink Chic: The most colourful, fun chocolates! Plus balloons and all manner of celebratory knick-knacks. Unelefante are based in Mexico and they're bringing the colour to your life! 

Here's to a nice weekend! Think of me and my 9am Monday deadline, okay?

Instagram Challenge | July Colour Inspiration

Well hello you! I hope your week is coming along nicely! Since July is screaming by, it's high time that we had a little colour inspiration roundup for those of us participating in the #kittyandbuckcolor challenge. July's colour is turquoise, which is just everywhere, from the water to a pretty wall, your nails (?) and tonnes of other things. If you spot something turquoise in your wanders, take a pic and tag it with #kittyandbuckcolor. I'll be featuring my favourites at the end of the month. You can see the original announcement post here. Below are some of my favourite turquoise pics spotted recently:

4 | Hideaki Hamada
5 | Lauren Von Grimm
6 | Hello Sandwich

I hope to see your shots in the feed!

MAKING the best birthday cake three times! Once with chocolate frosting and twice with blueberry compote and mascarpone cream. Enough sugar for a whole year.

COOKING - aside from cake, you mean? These sweet potato quinoa cakes with blackberry salsa are the best.

DRINKING copious amounts of coffee

WATCHING a plethora of 80's teen movies.

READING Japanese language textbooks, Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto, Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut and a pile of others.

WANTING a day off

LOOKING like I need a haircut. Real bad.

STARTING to book our final days of the Japan adventure in November.

OBSESSED with my big fluffy quilt.

ENJOYING working from home on these cold days!

PLAYING everything in Japanese - vocab games, writing games and podcasts.

WAITING patiently for my pre-order of the Twin Peaks remastered blu-ray to arrive

WONDERING where we will take the Ford Kuga Titanium next!? Any requests?

LOVING the cherry blossoms that adorn our house right now (they're almost gone, so sad)

WEARING fleece lined leggings all day, every day.

FOLLOWING my inbox right now. I've neglected all other communication with the outside world unfortunately.

NOTICING my breath fogging the air.

THINKING constantly about the to-do list in my brain. It's becoming quite overwhelming and I feel bad when I let people down by not doing enough, fast enough. Sigh.

GRATEFUL for my nocturnal foot companion, Nico (the black cat - aka My Pal Foot Foot for any Shaggs fans out there) ❤
Thanks to Miranti for the inspiration for the format of this post!

Weekend Links v.13


This lakes and ocean infographic is fascinating. I need to know what is inside the door that James Cameron found at the bottom ;)

I Love Mona has 20% off all summer stock! Loving this handmade pineapple and parrot print dress!

Lisa has some great tips to improve your website in just 15 minutes

I must have one of these sleep mask pillows!

Are there any other Ray Bradbury fans out there?

These daily rituals of happy and successful people are fantastic. Imagine if everyone lived this way.

In case you missed it on Kitty & Buck:

I hope you've had a wonderful week! I have several work projects on the go right now, so I apologise for having less posts than usual. I'm going to try and be more organised this week!
