Weekend Blog Reads at daneesaur.co.uk

There we go, another little collection for you to read up on the articles, blog posts and videos I’ve found shareworthy in the last couple of days! Let’s jump right in.

PARENTING THE GERMAN WAY

It’s so strange, reading this article I’ve never really realised that people in other countries might be doing things differently. Helicopter parent style. Now, I don’t intend to ever have kids, but this is still a worthwhile read; it basically sums up my childhood!
How to Parent Like a German.

NO SLEEP CHEAT SHEET

Well, unlike the post’s author, I’m not a parent (plus I can’t drink caffeine, which makes bit of this a tad more difficult), but I’m struggling with fatigue a lot these days, so this is a great post for those days you just really have to pull through: How to Function at Work When You Got Almost No Sleep.

WHY BOOKS SMELL THE WAY THEY SMELL

Now this one’s one for the book nerds and chemistry geeks alike: ever wondered why books smell the way they do? Well, Compound Interest has got you covered. They explain that the “new book smell” (and the “old book smell”, for that matter) is far more than adhesives and ink: What Causes the Smell of New & Old Books?

RECIPES >> INSTANT MAC & CHEESE, SORT OF

Another post from A Beautiful Mess! This sounds like a great idea; sometimes eating vegan is made hard by the fact that there aren’t enough quick comfort food options. ABM have put up a wonderful recipe to prepare a vegan “boxed” Mac&Cheese mix that you just have to prepare with a bit of vegan butter and milk. I love the idea! Just need to find some onion powder now … : Homemade “Boxed” Mac + Cheese (Vegan Friendly).

What have you been reading & loving this past week? xx

  • Ooh I’ve been looking for dairy-free mac and cheese, I’ll have to try out that recipe! Thank you for sharing 🙂 xx
