In Life

001: Have returned to Berlin, where I have been trying and failing to establish normal sleep patterns. I did manage to wake up at a regular hour once within the last seven days, however, which I spent with my friend Hannah, hanging out at the Unicorn in Mitte and talking about our travel plans to Prague next month(!) If any of you guys have recommendations of where to go, please let me know!

On the web

001: An interesting look at the less than glamorous side of Korea.
002: As a lady whose last boyfriend was 14 years my senior, found this read about what it’s really like to date an older man quite interesting. Although not all points fit with my particular situation, I did find myself nodding along with a lot of it.
003: As you are all aware, I have been just mad about tacos lately, so I am totally into Pinch of Yum’s spicy fish taco bowls with cilantro lime slaw. For all of you non-fish eaters out there, I am pretty sure this would taste amazing with grilled or fried tofu as well.
004: Peyton Fulford’s incredible photo series, abandoned love.
005: Good news, everyone. Science has finally explained resting bitch face. Turns out, it really is a thing.
006: Fascinating article about how it may be possible to train your immune system – really breakthrough science especially for those suffering from diseases like Lupus, or who have received transplants.
007: The leeday.’s Tha Majarah Bangkok Guide, full of stunning travel photos.

  • Ooh Prague! Looking forward to your adventures. I went once, however sadly cannot give any recommendations as I met up with a friend who took me around everywhere. I wish I could return to Prague soon.

      Thanks, Natalie! I will be sure to share them here as well! And no problem, hope you get to return to Prague soon too!

  • All the food photos are making me hungry!


    • rae

      I always feel the same when I see photos of food on people’s blogs too, haha.

  • megsiobhan

    That abandoned love series is gorgeous. I love the simplicity, and colours within the shots. Oh, I have RBF constantly. That, and my face pulling expressions that happen to be completely different to how I am feeling. I’ll get asked why I’m smiling, when inside I am as far from that as can be!

      Isn’t it? I think it is quite powerful as well. That is so interesting too about people asking why you are smiling… maybe you suffer from both RBF and RHF (resting happy face?! Is that even a thing?!)

  • Marinella Rauso

    i love the hight quality of photography and your website so well curated. It’s really amazing and inspiring.

    • rae

      Aww thank you so much, Mari! So glad and touched that you think so!

  • Oh my GOD. So Resting Bitch Faces are actually scientific?! Gah, I’ve been mistaken for being angry too many times on candid occasions and it drives me up the wall every time.

    Good luck with the travel plans, Rae!

      Thank you so much, Lucy and yes, resting bitch face is totally actually a thing! Thanks, I am so excited for Prague too!

  • Acclimating to new sleep patterns is often the most difficult part of traveling. Best of luck. :]

      I agree entirely! It’s really the only drawback of travelling in my opinion.
