The Ultimate Rabbit Hole #53

The Ultimate Rabbit Hole #53

Hello friends! Happy Weekend! As this post is published I’ll be huffing and puffing my way around Sydney’s Northern Beaches in the 10km Sun Run. I might as well get used to the huffy puffy because we’ve just signed up to run the 5k, 10k and the Half Marathon on three consecutive days, in Disneyland. Oh, the things I do for Mickey! I’m trying not to panic because we have until September to get race ready! Forget the wet look, I hope the sweat look is in!

Anyways, enough about me! Let’s hope on down the Rabbit Hole with Bubbles bunny and see what’s in store, shall we?

Today is National Frozen Yoghurt Day which is just as well because it’s been hot enough to melt here and I could do with cooling down! Check out these 15 Frozen Yoghurt Recipes  you can make in your blender and when you’re done with those, how about some Superfood Nice Cream Recipes?

If you want to be a boss in the kitchen, check out these 10 amazing graphics that will make you a baking expert. They are just genius!

If you’re looking for the best of the web in the Happiness and Wellbeing department then check out these 3 Expert Happiness and Wellbeing websites, I’m so pleased to see that one of my all time favourites Action for Happiness made the cut!

Talking of getting out happy on, I’m loving this list of 5 Ways to Feel Fab Before 9am. While we’re on the subject of healthy habits, check out these 10 great habits you can build around foodwhich includes eating dessert! That’s my kind of advice!

I’m totally getting into podcasts. Now that Serial  is going bi-weekly, I’ve been looking for something to entertain my ears. Right now I’m loving Straight and Curly with the lovely Smaggle and Kelly Exeter. As you would expect from a podcast with these two woman wonders – t’s full of top tips, good chat and life hacks.

I’m a professional worrier. Sometimes, I worry that I have nothing to worry about. I used to have a set of worry dolls but they went AWOL… At least they were kind enough to take some of my worries with them. Anyhoo, if you or someone you know has some worries that need to be gone,  check these out. They’re the real deal.

Did you know about these 13 uses for shampoo? Aside from washing your hair, of course!

I’m very grateful that I have a lovely place to call home but gee, it’s so brown.  I think I notice it more now I’m at home most days, it’s like being in a poo vortex. We keep toying with the idea of renovating and transforming Brown Town to White City but that means splashing a lot of cash and when it comes to choosing between money spent travelling or money spent renovating, I’ll choose an adventure every time. That said, I’m loving these 40 ways to change your home because a small change can make a big difference.

So tell me, what’s the weather like where you are? What podcast should I listen to next? Have you got a good baking tip to share? Tell me about your home, is it like Brown Town or White City? Or something different entirely?! Tell me all the things!

Every Saturday morning, we will open up the rabbit hole link up for bloggers to add their link list posts or even just their favourite post (if you are not of the link list kind) for the week.  Do try and pop along to say howdee to some of  the other lovely linkers. Link up here, over at Calm to Conniption or My2Morrows. It doesn’t matter where you add your link because it will appear on all three blogs, as if by magic!  The link up will stay open until midnight the following Monday.
Be a smarty and join this linky party!

    Wow, you are going to need and totally deserve a nice bubble bath after this weekend!! Way to go Sammie! I’m cheering you on from over here in New Zealand. Go Sammie Go!!!

    • Yes, a bubble bath with Epsom salts are the order of the day! Thanks for cheering me on – it definitely helped me get over the finish line! Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend x

  • Wow, you’re definitely going to need a frogurt after your run! Who knew there as a day for that?

    • I think there’s a food day for everything! I had a pancake feast for breakfast – it was hard earned and well needed! Have an ace weekend!

  • LydiaCLee

    It’s annoying about Serial – they’re really dragging it out!

    • I know, right? But then I heard the explanation why and it makes sense. I think I might have to not listen for a while, save all the episodes and then binge listen to the whole lot because otherwise I forget what’s happened from one fortnight to the next!

  • I’d chose travelling and adventure over renovating too! I hope you had a good run today!

  • Lozzie@MessyRainbows

    You are amazing & such an inspiration! Good luck today & lucky you going back to the happiest place on earth again! We’ve nearly been in our house for a year now & still haven’t unpacked everything or done much to the place because I can’t decide on a style. I do love the all white look with pops of colour but with two little people & their grubby hands etc it’s prob not exactly practical at this stage of our lives.

    • I hear you about the white – even with us two big people and our grubby hands etc, I’m wondering if white will ever be practical… But it will always be brighter than brown! We are so lucky going back to the happiest place on earth… I just hope I don’t spontaneously combust with excitement before I get there! Happy Weekend!

  • Wow! Thise baking graphics are incredible for a kitchen novice like me! And I’m totally trying those nice cream recipes on the kids! I listened to the first few eps of straight and curly one after another the other day and it’s so good! Loving it! Also loving Kelly’s other podcast, let it be! Serial changing to bi weekly is so annoying. By the time a new Ep is out I’ve forgotton what happened last time. Your trip sounds amazing! Go you! Xx

    • Ah yes, I must try Kelly’s other podcast too. I listened to some more Straight and Curly on my run this morning – it’s just so good. I think I’m going to stop listening to Serial, wait til the series is done and then binge listen, because like you, I just can’t keep track from one fortnight to the next! Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend! x

  • Good luck with the run today!

    I’ve heard about the Disneyland runs as well, they sound so fun! I really hope you enjoy them. You are incredibly brave attempting 3 in a row! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    • I’m not sure if I’m incredibly brave or incredibly stupid! The run was fun. Hope your weekend is full of happy! x

  • I love your balanced life…run/cook/eat/play/work Sammie! As for makeovers, mmmmm…maybe a bit here and a bit there so you can still travel and have fun. I got a makeover this week, thanks to my designer friend who was able to help me get matching graphics for my 7 topics a week blogging habit. Loving my work habits on the blog. Love, Denyse xx PS say G’day to my old stamping ground those Northern Beaches as you run through this morning!

    • I saw your bloggy makeover and very jolly it is too! High five to you for blogging every day – go you! I’ve done the Sun Run every year since it first started in 2011, and those views, they never get old! I heart the Northern Beaches hard! Hope you’re weekend is full of jolly! x

  • jess

    Brilliant links as usual! Love the food habits one, and this Perth heat has got me craving frozen yoghurt.

    • Thanks, love! I keep meaning to tell you how much I love your Instagram feed (and the blog too!) I think every day is a good day for frozen yoghurt, don’t you? Stay cool!

  • So many great links this week Sammie 🙂 You’re amazing with all of your running. I have never been to Dinseyland, but a friend of mine is currently there and is having the greatest time. She goes quite often – it is her thing. She even had an amazing Disney themed 30th.

    • If I could turn 30 all over again, I’d definitely have a Disney themed birthday. Did everyone dress up? Disneyland really is the happiest place on earth – I hope you get to go one day! Happy Weekend!

  • Three consecutive days of running? You’re amazing Sammie! Running around the happiest place on earth has to help lift the spirits though surely?! Best of luck in the Sun Run today too. Hooray for frozen yoghurt. Your heatwave will be hitting us in the West next week with temps in the 40s so I’ll be needing lots of frogurt (and air conditioning). Have a lovely weekend xx

    • As much as I love running rings around Sydney, nothing beats running around the happiest place on earth! Now, we have to think about costumes! May the frogurt be free flowing, and the air con be strong! Stay cool, my friend! x

  • merilyn

    thankyou sammie!
    you always come up with great blogs with good information and/or entertainment!
    you are amazing with your running! … can’t even imagine running anywhere!
    frozen yoghurt sounds like the business to cool you down!
    drink lots! … love m:)X

    • I’m pleased you likey! I only started running when I turned 40 and although I’m never going to break any speed records, I’m slow by I go! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  • That’s awesome re all the running you’re doing! My knee issues keep me from running too much. Oh and I’ve gotten into podcasts too. They’re pretty cool aren;t they? I enjoy So you want to be a writer and Happier

    • I figure my knees will give up eventually, so I’m going to make the most of the running while I can! I’m getting so addicted to podcasts, thanks for those tips. I’m off to check them out! Happy Weekend!

    Wow wow wow- three consecutive days….that’s almost a marathon! But it is in the most magical place on earth so I’m sure you’ll fly along glistening with your effort!!! Hmmmm do you get a chocolate gift bag???
    I live in beige ville! 1982 loveliness….. Beige tiles in bathroom and kitchen- floral in bath fruit and veg and plain tiles in kitchen…along with exposed brick and lots of wood.. What a dream!! I also have odd light switches- apparently in the late 70’s all the cool expy houses had them…they’re giant and white and beige…great for middle of the night bathroom trips when you just need to pop your hand out!
    Did I just see u only started running when you were 40? X

    • No chocolate gift bag, but the bling is ah-mazing! Do you want to swap the beige for brown? I have to see your light switches! And yes, I really ran my first fun run a few months before my 40th! I’ve lost count of how many fun runs I’ve done since then, and in fact, I’ve run six half marathons, all since I had cancer and turned 40. Just goes to show anything is possible! xx

  • I really need to jump on the podcast bandwagon! Thanks for the hot tips, Sammie xx

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Love podcasts and will get onto Straight and Curly! I listen to them during beauty appointments! 😀

    • I listen to them when I’m running – makes it much quicker and painless! You will love Straight and Curly – it’s like hanging out with a couple of mates.

  • I must check out 5 ways to look fab before 9! Good on you on your fun run, though can running 10km really be fun??:)

  • Our house is pretty dang brown as well with lots of exposed brick and 70s style trimmings so I feel you on that. We made over our old house completely before moving and now we haven’t touched the new one in two years! Wish I could channel some of your love for running!

    • If you leave the house long enough, the brick and 70s trimmings will be back in fashion again and you’ll have the coolest house on the block. As for the running love, I have plenty to share! You want some?!

  • Well first of all – one of my munchkins is a yoghurt fanatic – so how we did not know about it having its own day, I do not know but he will LOVE these recipes. 13 uses for shampoo – I am so booking that and most of all THANK YOU so much for sharing my post you gorgeous woman you. Have a fab week you big spunk xxx

    • Your worry dolls post was too good not to share – I’ve loved them from way back! Hope your weekend was thoroughly glorious! xx
