Stamp of Approval

WHAT UP SATURDAY!!! Here’s what I rounded up across the Internet over the final week in February (Tata, to the coldest month of the year). I have never watched a family swap show, until now. When I saw that Kendra Wilkinson and Kate Gosselin switched places, I couldn’t resist. If you can’t either, watch the episode here.


Ashley Abroad: After visiting Turkey last summer, I absolutely fell in love with Turkish food and Ashley made me fall in love with it all over again with her Complete Guide to Turkish Food for Foodies.


Disrupting the Rabblement: 100 People Doing Extraordinary Things says it all. People are so creative.


Blog -> Connect: Just when I thought Helene couldn’t be any greater, she does it again. She has started a community and forum for bloggers called Blog Connect. Ask questions, meet new bloggers, etc.


Just One Way Ticket: 8 Steps to Freedom: How I Quit my Job and Traveled Around the World is great advice for anyone looking how to travel, whether just a short Europe trip or a RTW Plane Ticket.


Mashable: Titanic II is setting sail in 2016. It will be a replica of the original ship and passengers will wear early 20th century clothing provided by the ship and follow the rules of the traditional ship, i.e. working class passengers will not be allowed in first and second class dining rooms.


Young Adventuress: Liz rants about the dumb shit people do online. I 100% agree with everything said in How Not to Be a Douche Online.

    I am mad at Turkey at the moment for still having my boyfriend 😉 But in normal circumstances I would definitely love their food.

    • ifs ands & butts

      Oh man he’s still there?! Rats! Maybe he will bring you back some good Turkish spices or Turkish Delight! I hope he’s feeling better!

      • bevchen

        Monday he’s allowed to fly… tomorrow. One more sleep!

        He was doing fine when I spoke to him on Friday and mentioned the possibility of being allowed to actually leave the hospital and go to the beach yesterday.

    Just wondering how you get ABC tv to play here in Germany. Got an error that I am out of the country…yep, you are right.

    • ifs ands & butts

      Hi Jules! Personally, I use a VPN service. VPNs reassign your Internet IP address so that it appears you are in the USA. I use Astrill and bought a year pack. However, there are free ones like Hotspot Shield (a ton of pop-up ads) and this new extension came out called Hola Unblocker that you can use if you are in Chrome (except it does not have support for ABC yet) I hope this helps!

  • Rosie

    I look forward to these posts every weekend. Thanks for some awesome reads. Xxx

  • Sara Louise

    That Titanic idea is super creepy #temptingfate

    • ifs ands & butts

      Nooooo joke!

  • Janna

    Whaaaaa?? Titanic? I want to get in on that action!! I’ve already been into the Arctic Circle on a boat, so I think I can handle it 😉

    • ifs ands & butts

      haha just make sure you’re not in on the working class action – I’m no princess but that could be one LOOOOONG boat ride. I could meet a Jack though. Maybe I’ll reconsider :)

  • Helene in Between

    oh you’re officially the best. so honored.

  • Sab
