Image Credit: derRenner via Pixabay
Hi there! I've done loads of reading lately and have curated a pretty good collection of links that I think you should check out because they are a) really funny, b) really helpful, or c) really life changing. I think a good blog post or video should be at least one of those things (really inspirational counts in both b) and c) in my opinion) or else what's the point, you know?

Keep reading if you'd like some really funny, really helpful, and really life changing links to brighten up your day!

A Beautiful Mess: 3 Easy Party Appetizer Ideas

I know that this time of October's a bit of an awkward and unpopular time to host a party, but if you're doing a Thanksgiving thing or just thinking of hosting something, you should definitely check out these recipes. They look so absolutely adorable and even if you aren't thinking of having any kind of party in the near future (I'm not), I'm definitely keeping this bookmarked.

Evelina: Fashion Tips for Broke Girls

I'm sure as much as we love fashion, we don't all have the money to spend on every single thing our hearts desire, so this video showcases a bunch of super helpful tips when it comes to shopping on a budget. Evelina also mentioned a really, really good quote that was just life-changing, honestly. She said, "I'm not rich enough to buy cheap things." So true.

Trendy Techie: 5 Ways to Refresh Your Digital Workspace Without Spending Any Money

This post was already featured on IFB, but I figured that some of you probably don't read that, so it wouldn't hurt to share it with you as well. I'm sure electronics and virtual things are very much a part of your life as it is mine and like your desk, it needs to be cleaned and decluttered. These tips are great to give you a fresh page so you don't dread going on your laptop due to its lack of organisation or how tedious some tasks are.

Zoella: Autumn/Fall Makeup Makeup | Gold Eyes & Berry Lips

I personally haven't started to wear makeup yet but this tutorial totally tempted me and I'm pretty 98% sure that I'm giving into that. This look is just so pretty and I'm definitely going through a dark lip phase right now and can't wait to get my hands on a few dark colours for this time of year. All I have to wait for is my eyelashes to grow back because my mom's dumb eyelash curler chopped off a bunch of them. I hope that that made sense, aha.
