Friday Favorite – Birambi message in a bottle

January 6, 2017

Friday Favorite - Birambi fresh start | http://weirdatheart.com/friday-favorite-birambi-message-in-a-bottle/

Loads of people seem to dislike January. I really don’t understand what that’s all about. ‘But Sarah,’ I hear you say, ‘it’s January. That cold and grey scumbag, that bleakest of months…’ Well, bullshit, that’s what I call that. If you’re going to be negative, it doesn’t matter what month it is. Of course there can be bad days, but to write off an entire month just on the idea that it will be a bad one, that’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. And a waste of four Continue Reading

Book Review: the Watchmaker of Filigree Street

October 31, 2016

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street | Like historical fiction, magical realism and Victorian London with (a generous) dash of Japan? This book is for you! http://weirdatheart.com/book-review-the-watchmaker-of-filigree-street/

They say not to judge a book by a cover, but when it comes to books, I always do. I’m judgmental like that. A good cover is what makes me notice a book on my round through the bookstore. If it doesn’t pique my interest, I’ll probably not pick it up. Not picking it up was not an option with The Watchmaker of Filigree Street though, as its cover Continue Reading

TV shows to watch this fall

TV shows to watch this fall - fall foliage
The leaves are slowly turning to yellow and red, wood stoves and hearths are fired up again, and the crisp air outside is just cold enough to put steaming mugs of hot chocolate on the mind. It’s the time to get cosy, or, as it’s so popularly called this year: for hygge. And although you should definitely go outside every now and then to check out the beautiful colors and work up an appetite for all the indulgent foods that are so abundant now, ’tis also the season for … Continue Reading

Friday Favorite – Free Hug Sofa

April 22, 2016

Friday favorite: Free Hug Sofa - weirdatheart.com
Yes, yes, yes! If you’re an avid reader like myself, you know that the struggle is real. Especially when you also just happen to be slightly on the short side in a country of giants. At 1.55 or 5’1 I stand a good 20 cm below most of my female friends, and at least 30 below the guys. Talking to people in loud bars is nearly impossible, which is why I dance. But that’s not the struggle I’m talking about. I’m talking about sitting. Continue Reading
